After its strongish premiere, the ratings for for Fox’s “Alcatraz” have fallen every week. And this week that fall pushed it further below 2.0 rating barrier, only receiving a 1.8 rating with the critical 18-49 demo. It’s generally felt once ratings fall below 2.0 that show could be cancelled at any time. This is the second week below that number.

Okay, we’re getting excited about this now. We especially dig Reynolds’ first reading of the oath. He (cue emotional vocal tremble) had us at “brightest day”.

The sudden rash of “black panther sightings” this fall at Bay Area parks has given new spark to the region’s greatest wildlife mystery:
Are the sightings cases of mistaken identity, as wildlife scientists believe?
Or is there another explanation?
Scientists say they have no proof of black panthers in the region.
“I really think that most of the black cat sightings are either house cats or occasionally where someone saw a mountain lion in bad lighting,” said Steve Bobzian, a wildlife biologist for 14 years with the East Bay Regional Park District, where most of the reported sightings have occurred.
“I’ve had people send photos of what people thought were mountain lions, and they ended up being bobcats, house cats, and one time a fox, another time a coyote,” Bobzian said.
