In a startling turn of “WTF?,” NBC has decided to cancel Passions and expand Today to four hours.

Yup: one more hour of hilarity at 30 Rock, while the only U.S. soap opera to feature an orangutan as a main character. It makes no friggin’ sense, I tell ‘ya!

Actually, my only exposure to Passions is from clips shown on The Late Show with David Letterman, so I’m not exactly a fan – but I do enjoy some simian humor every so often.
