(Los Angeles-AP) May 9, 2006 - You won't see the cast of "The West Wing" getting teary-eyed, reminiscing about their seven years on the air. NBC has canceled the trip down memory lane that was going to air before Sunday's series finale.

Variety says it's because some of the cast wanted more money to do it. Turns out that reminiscing isn't part of their contract.

Variety doesn't say which actors wanted more money or how much they were asking for. Some of the cast makes about $200,000 an episode.

So, instead of a clip show, NBC will rerun the first episode of The West Wing from back in the day when an average 17 million people watched.

The average audience is less than half that now.
