Moonlight Cancelled

CBS' vampire drama "Moonlight" will not rise again.

Sources confirm the fan favorite will not be renewed by the network for a second season.

CBS declined to pickup the series because it was failing to hold its "Ghost Whisperer" lead-in and declined in the ratings post-strike. Last Friday's episode garnered a 2.0 rating among adults 18 to 49.

The news will doubtlessly devastate "Moonlight" fans, which have been very passionate for the show by any standard. Recently fans organized a nationwide blood drive to rally viewer support for a renewal.

But last year CBS picked up cult favorite "Jericho" despite mediocre ratings, only to see the series plummet when it returned this year. With "Moonlight" having a serialized storyline, the chances of the show rebounding next season seemed slim.

The cancellation means "The Big Bang Theory" is the only member of CBS' freshman crop to return next year.
