No More Power Rangers in Fall 2011?

Since the beginning of this year, ABC has been reairing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but the reruns may be in jeopardy coming Fall 2011. Litton Entertainment announced that they will produce “all-new, original half-hour E/I series exclusively for ABC stations for September 2011.” According to Darrell K. Brown, President of McGraw-Hill Broadcasting and Chairman of the ABC Affiliate Board, “The ABC Affiliate Association’s Board has recommended Litton’s lineup of E/I programs as the best programming and financial option for ABC affiliates.”

The ratings for Disney’s original programming have always been higher than Power Rangers could offer, so if anything were to get bumped from the lineup, it would be our beloved heroes in spandex. There is a possibility that Power Rangers reruns could resurface on Disney XD, but we all know how well that turned out the last time.

Yeah, that’s not good news at all. Looks like American toku is done for. Now it’s all up to the fans to do what they can to keep it alive.

The best thing to do now is to start planning a Power Rangers reboot. The time has come.
