Wil Wheaton Project Cancelled by Syfy

Syfy finally say’s Shut up Wesley as it was  announced today the series described as “Talk Soup for geeks” The Wil Wheaton Project won’t be back for a second season.
Wheaton broke the news of the cancellation via a post on WilWheaton.net, in which the Star Trek: The Next Generation alum/Big Bang Theory guest star writes that the network’s executives “just didn’t think we had enough viewers to justify more episodes.”
A Syfy rep confirmed today that the series is cancelled. Wheaton goes on to state that the series garnered ratings “on par with The Soup” but a lack of promotion and the show’s summer debut — when TV viewership is down overall — likely were among the factors in Syfy’s decision. Still, the Wheaton  maintains that he is “okay” with the state of affairs and thanks everyone who watched the show. He also made a final plea to fans: “Oh, and let me just stop this before it starts: We nerds have a penchant for letter-writing campaigns and stuff to try and save shows we like. Please don’t do that here. It’s not going to happen, and we should instead put that energy into something else, like getting #butts to trend.” Did you really expect Wil to tell the truth and say the show sucked? That he has the hosting talent of a potted plant? Now Syfy can run some  ShamWow commercials in its place and get 10 times the ratings. Goodbye and shut the hell up Wesley!
