From the Fox press bundle today:
''That '70s Show'' packs up the polyester bell-bottoms, Zeppelin 8-tracks and lava lamps when it ends its eight-season run Thursday, May 18 ... The series finale also marks the 200th episode milestone.
The award-winning comedy ''Malcolm in the Middle,'' currently in its seventh season, will celebrate its series finale Sunday, May 14 on Fox. The penultimate episode will mark the series' milestone 150th.
Both shows were sturdy performers for the network. And ''Malcolm'' was at times fabulously funny, notably in its early years. But shows wear out, or viewers move on. I can't remember the last time I sat through an entire episode of either show, and I used to be a faithful viewer of both.
