Why stop at Season 5? Why not Season 10? Animal Planet, USA only has 2 shows that are profitable and one of them is Meerkat Manor. Season 4 viewership was supposedly down in the US, but it was because of 3 things. One, Whoopi Goldberg didn't do a good job with narrating the movie abouot Flower's life. Then, we learn that another woman will be narrating Season 4 which had people skepticle. And worst of all, they aired the entire 4th season during the summer months when school is out and everyone is taking their family vacations! How brilliant was that? Mick Kazakorski is an idiot. He, alone, will ruin the US version of this EXCELLENT show! Instead of changing narrators, they should have changed executive producers. Now that Marjorie Kaplan is in charge, maybe she'll put a boot up his bonnet!
