Pirate Master Axed; Cast Member Commits Suicide

CBS has put Pirate Master out of its misery, axing it before the season ended. If a show can't survive during the summer months when nothing but reruns are on, it has to be bad. For some reason, the producers convinced the cast to pretend that they were really pirates, so the contestants kept slipping in and out of talking relatively normally or talking like pretend pirates. Louie was the only one who kept up the charade consistently. Nothing beat the unintentional comedy of dreadlocked wacko Azmyth adopting a terrible British accent when he became Captain. Contestant Cheryl Kosewicz, the fourth pirate eliminated from the show, committed suicide, two months after her boyfriend killed himself.
