Oh NO THEY DIDN'T! Channel 7Two in Australia has just canceled the hit UK soap Hollyoaks from its lineup and replaced it with repeat episodes of Designing Women.
While generally I wouldn't completely hate on a network for axing repeats of a series that were not obviously working. I have to say that I am beyond mad at 7two for axing the series when it was finally starting to find itself.
The network began airing the series with one of its WORST era's in the soaps history, and now a year later has finally begun airing the Paul Marquess content that has helped the series rebound in the UK. Honestly I don't understand why they would axe the show when the quality of the show (and thus the potential audience figures) is only going to grow.
There have been rumbles that Foxtel is going to pick up the series but there has been no confirmation of this as of this posting.
