React: Is Jay-Z's comeback a good idea?
Sticky's 'Blade' series canceled
Sticky Fingaz' attempt to fill Wesley Snipes' shoes came to an abrupt end when the Spike network canceled its "Blade" series after just one season. Co-star Jill Wagner first reported the news on her MySpace page. "I was informed today that there will be no second season of 'Blade' the series," wrote Wagner, who is best known for her work on "Punk'd" and in Mercury commercials. "Thanks for the support. Hey, there is always the DVD right?" Billed on the show as Kirk "Sticky" Jones, he played the title role of Blade, the half-man, half-vampire popularized in comic books and then in three Snipes films. "I can tell you that Spike TV was very happy with the creative part of 'Blade' -- the cast, the actual production," a Spike spokesman told the Sci-Fi Channel. "But honestly, the network was disappointed with the audience turnout and the ratings." That wasn't the case after the series debut on June 28. "Blade" premiered with an audience of 2.5 million viewers, making it Spike's highest-rated premiere ever and the night's top entertainment offering with men 18-34 and 18-49. Unfortunately for Sticky and company, the show did not maintain its initial audience.
