SitcomsOnline Digest: Cancellations at NBC; Nash Bridges and Becker DVDs

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! Now that Halloween is over and everybody is in the holiday mood now (if you don't believe it, check your local radio dial, because there is a good chance you'll find at least one station playing non-stop Christmas music), things are also slowing down as far as news developments, but we're here with all that we have, including a pair of recent cancellations at NBC. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
