They would be better off re-running Moonlight episodes.

I agree .. I knew the new show would not take off and always felt CBS cancelling Moonlight was not the smartest decision ..Who knows maybe they'll it on again or at least put Alex in a newer series since he was the main reason why Moonlight was addictive

I never watched it but I was aware of the premise and it didn't take a genius or even a network executive to understand that there was no way you get several seasons out of this idea. How many ex-boyfriends could she have?

I found it and Invasion right before it. Two shows that got progressively better as they headed for extinction.

Actually, in re-watching them, I find I'm even more impressed the second time around.

The CW Pairing 'Moonlight' With 'Vampire Diaries'

CBS series resurrected for summer reruns

By Marisa Guthrie -- Broadcasting & Cable, 5/6/2010 5:20:57 PM

The CW will rerun the CBS series Moonlight this summer, The CW announced May 6. Beginning June 3, the network will pair Moonlight, which stars Alex O'Loughlin, with The Vampire Diaries.

Moonlight, from Warner Bros. Television, bowed during the WGA-strike ravaged 2007-08 season. It garnered a small but loyal following. But was panned by critics and cancelled by CBS soon after it returned from its strike-imposed hiatus. O'Loughlin went on to star in the CBS medical drama Three Rivers, which bowed last fall. But that show was also hastily yanked.

The CW has already renewed Vampire Diaries for a second season.

Why? How odd. Are they that short on programming? Moonlight is a great show but there are so few episodes it comes to a disappointing, abrubt end.

Unless they plan to continue it, or have unaired episodes I dont get it either.

CW to Air Moonlight Repeats...but Why?

Thu., May. 6, 2010 1:30 PM PDT by Kristin Dos Santos

Further proof that vampires can never die (especially when they're hot as fire): The CW confirms that they'll be airing CBS' short-lived fangalicious series Moonlight this summer after The Vampire Diaries finishes its first season.

Now, you may ask, why now? Why this series? And is there any chance Moonlight will live on? Here's what I can tell you:

There are no plans at this time to resurrect Moonlight in its original inception, with star Alex O'Loughlin as the lead, because he's already been cast in another project: CBS' new Hawaii Five-O.

While it's only a pilot at this point, I'm hearing from CBS insiders the remake (also starring Lost's Daniel Dae Kim) is looking pretty likely for a pickup, as CBS tries to reel in some younger viewers.

So why is the CW airing Moonlight now? I'm told that the decision was made in part to keep O'Loughlin's fan base chugging along, in the hopes they'll follow him to the new Five-O this fall. (The CW and CBS are all one family, you know.) Plus, maybe you've heard, people kinda like vampires these days? So the ratings shouldn't be too shabby either, and will keep the TV audience busy.

For you die-hard fans who've lobbied for so long, does this sorta-kinda rebirth help lessen the sting, or were you hoping for more? Would you watch Alex on Five-O this fall? We all know CBS shouldn't have canceled Moonlight in the first place (right before the Twilight and True Blood craze hit), but is this the next best thing?
