The news: "Hidden Palms" will be wrapping up its season earlier than planned, airing two episodes per night next Wednesday and the Wednesday after that. The finale is now scheduled for July 4. The CW also will no longer show repeats of the show on Sunday nights.
The good: Less waiting to solve the mystery of Eddie's death. Also, at least all eight episodes are still scheduled to air sometime.
The bad: The ratings for the show haven't been good, and the CW doesn't seem to have much confidence that they'll get better. And I can't imagine anyone's going to watch the finale on the 4th; even the greatest guilty pleasures can't compete with fireworks.
The bottom line: If ratings don't pick up dramatically, I think it's safe to say this will be our only season in Palm Springs.
