CBS' MoonlightMoonlight fans, I'm not out to get you and neither is CBS, but this is neither here nor there.  James Hibberd isn't out to get you either, but he's a much better writer than I am so you can read his declaration that Moonlight is over and that you should move on:

Did the show ever stand a real chance of revival? Sure, sources say there was significant interest from various parties. Every option to keep the show alive was explored. But the math didn't compute. As with "Jericho," it's  tough to shrink a broadcast show's budget to fit a nonbroadcast network. The "Moonlight" ratings might have seemed ideal for another outlet, but there's no guarantee the same number of viewers would have followed the show to a new home. - James Hibberd on The Hollywood Reporter's THR LiveFEED blog.

I'm closing the comments on this post because we've "already seen that movie", but feel free to bomb away on Hibberd's blog.
