Tonight on the Tube: Kyle XY, The Closer, Heartland & Science of Love

Perfectmatch on NBC's Science of LoveToday, the TVaholic is heading up to Vancouver, B.C. for a Sci Fi Channel digital press tour of the Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, the new Flash Gordon and Stargate Atlantis sets, which will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will also be able to ask questions of cast members, writers, producers, etc. It should be a lot of fun and we should have plenty of pictures and more to report later in the week. Now, in TV cancellation news, the animated series Creature Comforts, on CBS, has been pulled do to low ratings. It couldn’t even beat a repeat of Wife Swap on ABC, which unbelievably finished in second place behind NBC’s season finale of Deal or No Deal. As of tonight, The New Adventures of Old Christine will replace it on the schedule.
