I loved the first season of CBS's "Close to Home" for many reasons.
It starred Jennifer Finnigan, Bridget from my soap "Bold and the Beautiful" (who, sadly, was kind of a dim bulb when I met her at the TV Critics' press tour.) It was set in Indiana, not in NY or LA -- a TV rarity. It promised to focus on small, family-based, suburban crimes, a la the Laci Peterson murder, instead of big crimes. And I liked Finnigan's character, a new mom with a loving husband. The show used to close almost every episode with a loving shot of her at home with hunky hubby and the world's cutest baby.
Then in the first-season finale, they killed off the husband with one of the dumbest TV cliche deaths (drunk driver). The second season immediately tried to introduce new men leering after the main character, a new widow. The crimes got less interesting and less close to home. And they never show the damn cute baby anymore, either. I'm betting this show gets canceled at the end of this season.
