Can't say I didn't see this coming. I was surprised it was picked up for season 5. There were a number of factors responsible for the slipping ratings over the years. The loss of Buffy as it's lead in show. The moving around the schedule. It had 4 different time slots at least. Angel was pre-emptied. Part of the blame has to lay with Whedon & the rest of Mutant Enemy. The series lost it's way the last couple of seasons.(Buffy did the same thing after it moved to UPN) Angel took a number of wrong turns which alienated a not insignificant amount of fans . Such as myself. When your ratings are slight(by tv standards anyway) to begin with .It's not a smart idea to antagonize the viewers.
