Bad form or totally appropriate?

Good news for me and others that have awaited yet another Dennis Miller television exit. His show is cancelled. This means two things: Miller now can go on to recreate another Weekend Update-like program and I no longer have to flip past his show in the evening.

I won't start to criticize his Monday Night Football gig. That should have been the point that he decided to get off the air and spend his time watching old SNL tapes. But the way Mark Hoffman, president of CNBC, told staffers of their soon-to-be-kyboshed show (in a very corporate-cold e-mail) begs debate. Was his e-mail to staffers bad form or a totally appropriate level of effort exerted to address a show that plainly stunk?
