In one of the truly dumber moves I have seen by TV execs, A&E cancelled Longmire. What a bunch of dumb asses.

A Wyoming sherif...and it was fantastic! Popular, too. Got some of the highest ratings in cable TV history.

3.5 million viewers is some of the highest in cable TV history?

There has been a drive at A+E Networks (as well as other cable network groups) to own a large portion of their scripted programming, which was also the impetus behind the launch of A+E Studios. Both Longmire and The Glades came from outside suppliers, Warner Horizon and Fox TV Studios, respectively.

After a foray into scripted programming, the network appears to be scaling back, refocusing on its bread-and-butter unscripted fare. Besides Psycho prequel Bates Motel, the network only has the upcoming 10-episode remake of The Returned on the scripted side following the cancellations of Longmire and Glades and the demise of Those Who Kill. A&E’s head of scripted programming, Tana Nugent Jamieson, just moved to A+E Studios as SVP. The network has one scripted executive left, VP Drama Development Gabriel Marano.

It sounds like this was one of the cases where the ratings of the program didn't match the profit margin.

I see it's on Netflix, and stars Starbuck and Sam Merlot. Lance Storm seems to be a fan. Worth watching?

Canceling Longmire is just a ridiculous move for them. Had nothing to do with the success or standing of the show. They did very much the same thing with The Glades, though, so I do not know why I am surprised.

As my post stated, it's a show that's produced out-of-house, so it ends up being less profitably for them. Happens all the time.

Perhaps another network will pick it up. But there was some closure regarding the whole backstory of what happened to his wife.
