AP: 'Charmed' a Casualty of WB-UPN Change

The spell is broken. The witches on "Charmed" won't be making the move when the WB network combines forces with UPN to become the CW network in the fall.

A WB spokesman confirmed a TV Guide report on Friday that said the supernatural series, which stars Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Holly Marie Combs, will end after eight seasons in May...

"It's been a hell of a run," Brad Kern, executive producer, told the magazine. "But all good things must come to an end."

I watch Charmed in reruns, but my interest fades after the Shannen Doherty episodes. (I like Rose McGowan, too, though.) Overall, it's a fantasy show where love is the ultimate power. Lois & Clark highlighted fantasy under Kern, but his ideas worked better in the more wide-open world of Charmed.

Doherty was a huge Charmed hitter for the show, but I'm glad that Rose came along and Brad Kern stepped up with a storyline that rocketed.
