  • IT’S EXTREMELY SAD THAT ALMOST EVERY “REALITY” SHOW IS A SURE THING.THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY HAVE TALENT SEEMS TO BE GOING THE WAYSIDE.TO BE A CELEBRITY NOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BE AN ASSHOLE ON CAMERA.

    • That’s so true. Truly disheartening that some much reality is around, which often portrays and rewards the lowest levels of humanity.

  • Only thing I care about is Castle. And shocked to see it’s downgraded from last year.

    Comment by Krithika – January 8, 2013 07:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It will probably get renewed since they’ll want enough episodes to put into syndication.

      I didn’t care for season 4 but I think it’s much better now that Castle and Beckett are finally together.

    Comment by Megan – January 8, 2013 09:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • If my three fave new shows, two have already been cancelled (Emily Owens and Made in Jersey) so I’m already discouraged. At least The New Normal is still around.

  • For the past 2 years CSI:NY has been ‘unsure’ or ‘on the bubble’ until the last possible day to find out. This show is consistenly in the Top 25. Look at CBS’s line up. They are the #1 network for a reason. They don’t need to change their programs. ELEMENTARY is a great new program. But that thing about the female lawyer from Jersey was just bad, and it’s pretty much gone. I think they are just burning off left over episodes.
    I would hate to see CSI:NY go. It is, by far, my favorite drama on TV. And Gary Sinise…actors like him don’t come along every day. Movie and theater stars don’t do television…they just don’t. But, Gary is involved in this show and wants it to keep going. I don’t want to lose something this good.

    • The people in charge of programming have to do something to justify their jobs. On CBS a show that gets good ratings by anyone else’s standards could find itself in trouble. I knew a guy who worked in car sales and one place he worked fired the three worst car salesmen every quarter no matter how many cars they sold. He got the ax after having a better quarter than the previous several, but he was in the bottom three.

      There are also money issues, Vegas, for example, is pretty expensive to produce, that will factor in also.

  • I hope hope HOPE you are right about Parenthood. I will be devastated if it’s cancelled. I just wish NBC would promote it more – I think a good portion of the viewers don’t know what this show is about and how amazing it is.

    Comment by KathyNYC – January 13, 2013 08:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree! Great show and it is so refreshing in a sea of reality tv. I know a lot of people on the east coast who don’t know anything about it or can’t watch since they are in bed by 10pm. If this show aired just 1 hour earlier, it would be a hit!

  • I’m not sure how I could live without Law & Order SVU. Even though I’m a Chris Meloni fan and was sad to see him go, the stories and characterizations have been light years better than they were 4 or 5 years ago. I do hope it stays around a bit longer. And where are Cragen and Munch? They’re both hardly in it anymore. I am glad to hear about Parenthood though. One of the best shows on tv right now.

  • Cable networks anyone? Many shows of regular tv have disappointed me, so I now am a big fan of USA, Showtime and HBO and would like to see how things go down there too.

  • I used to love Criminal Minds, but after the last few episods I think it’s time to say GOODBYE! the writers are pushing it too far.

  • Hey MATT!!!!

    When you update a list can you please date it under the list or next to the network name… what way if someone is watching for a particular show they can see if anything on that network has changed since the last update. Thank you

  • I think 90210 getx a short final season,i really want HoD,Nashville,Beauty & Beast renewed.Glad Once,VD,Big Bang,2 Broke Girls are safe.

  • Sorry to say, but Cougartown is sucking right now. They need to step it up if they don’t wanna get canceled from another network.

    Comment by Barbara Rasch – January 17, 2013 09:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I watch it out of loyalty but this new season isn’t very good. I understand that TBS is cable so they can be somewhat more risky than while on ABC but they don’t have to. We really needed the scene of Jules watching Games of Throne with her son and talking about her boobs? Plus, Grayson has turned into this overgrown child who whines all the time.

      Comment by L – January 24, 2013 09:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Why was Emily Owens M.D. cancelled? Is there a possibility of it being renewed? I love it. =(

    Comment by Caitlin C – January 18, 2013 07:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Because its US ratings aren’t good and it didn’t sell internationally and networks have to cancel shows to make room for new shows next season. I like it

    • I love emily owens md also wish it would be renewed.

  • I am so happy to see the shows I regularly watch will most likely be safe! Modern Family, The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, and Parenthood. Although, I do think Modern Family is losing some steam but I still watch it.

    Comment by Bren – January 18, 2013 10:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What about Vegas, it says it could go either way. IMO, the chemistry between Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis is great. I hope they don’t cancel it, it’s a good show.

  • Dear Fringe Cast,

    Thank you creating such a well-written, well-acted and thought-provoking series. Your show is one of a few that I will actually rewatch on dvd and follow on the Syfy network. Thank you for the story.

    Sincerely,

    Fringe Fanatic

  • On ABC:
    I hope Don’t Trust The B, Happy Endings, Revenge,Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Suburgatory and Modern Family get renewed.

    On CBS:
    I hope 2 Broke Girls and The Good Wife get renewed.

    On FOX:
    I hope The Following, New Girl, Raising Hope, Mindy Project and Ben & Kate get renewed. I hope Glee gets one final season.

    On NBC:
    I hope Parks and Recreation, Community, Go On and The New Normal get renewed.

    On The CW:
    I hope Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Nikita, Hart Of Dixie and The Carrie Diaries get renewed.

    I already know HIMYM is renewed and that sadly 30 Rock and Fringe are donezo. Also need ABC to pick up S.H.I.E.L.D so they can continue to be my favourite network.

    • How do you have time to watch so many shows?

      Comment by silvermoonsun – January 23, 2013 12:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I prefer to stream shows or watch on DVR and tend to just binge on shows and don’t regularly keep up with them but rather catch up when I want to. I also tend to let shows gather up to watch over summer when nothings on.

        Comment by Elle – January 26, 2013 08:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hate it when you get attached to a tv show and then find out it gets cancelled afterwards. It is pretty disappointing to see shows come and go. I’m just glad my favorite shows aren’t on the line-up for cancellation. Thank goodness. I love all the television channels they’ve listed, but tv shows that are on the CW are always on the rope because the CW cancels shows quite a lot than normal.

    Comment by starjade12 – January 19, 2013 11:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • They should keep Fringe. They should also keep 666 Park Avenue. I admit that I still miss watching House. TV shows in the past had more seasons than they do today!

    Comment by Diana – January 19, 2013 04:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Why the hell is Nashville “could go either way”? i love that show and everyone I’ve talked to loves it as well. This is ridiculous…Why would the network cancel one of it’s most favorite shows? I need an answer as soon as possible, and I’m sure many other people will want one too.

    Comment by Maggie Ames – January 20, 2013 09:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It doesn’t matter if Nashville is the network’s fave show, it matters is America watches it. And even though you and your friends may be devoted to it, Nashville’s nationwide audience in the coveted Adults 18-49 demographic is iffy compared to other shows on ABC. It could be cut to make room for new shows that could have a potentially larger audience.

  • What about MTV’s Undermployed?

    Comment by Aibileen – January 20, 2013 02:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This is only for the major broadcast networks, so MTV will not be included.

      Comment by cc – January 21, 2013 03:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Sorry, but looking at the ratings, it’s a long shot for Underemployed to be renewed.

      Comment by nick1372 – January 21, 2013 08:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Fringe wasn’t cancelled, it aired a final season, everything was wrapped up over the entire 5th season. A show ending doesn’t always mean it is ending due to cancellation. I’d have preferred to read ‘Final season, ending series.

        LOVE THE NEIGHBORS! SAVE THE NEIGHBORS!

        • I watched 5 minutes of the pilot and that was 5 minutes too long. I’ve heard fans say that the show has gotten better since the pilot, but I just can’t make myself give it another chance.

      • I agree, The Neighbors has become my favorite show this season. I always follow the underdog shows like “Alice”,” Facts Of Life”, The Nanny”, etc. I hope season 2 does better ratings wise!!!

    • The pilot was awful. I totally agree. But I went back a couple weeks ago and actually enjoyed it. It isn’t perfect, but if renewals were based on quality and potential, it would be a sure thing.

    • The ratings aren’t great and this is a show that people had high expectations for. The pilot was great but a lot of people quickly lost interest in Rayna’s drama.

    I’m really enjoying Nashville, probably more because of the music, but the storyline is fine too.

  • I hope that Last Resort gets picked up by FX network, since it is produced by the same company that created The Shield. But I’ve also longed for someone to recreate The Unit, with,? Dennis Haysbert and Max Martini as the base commanders; then they could bring back Scott Foley and Mchael Irby back as veteran Alpha and Bravo team leaders.

    As far as Last Resort, it needs a cable network since it is a bit edgy for ABC/ Disney.

    Comment by Mike – January 24, 2013 01:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Did you see the last episode? The series was brought to a conclusion, and there would be no way to continue it, even if they wanted to.

  • Private practice I can’t believe that they’re canceled the show. Why cancel the show and have don’t trust the “B in apartment…. really that is not a show its a ridiculous show that makes no sense and its not funny.

    Comment by Carmen – January 24, 2013 07:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Considering Private Practice was a drama and Don’t Trust the B is a comedy there is no correlation. You don’t have to like letalone watch the show but insulting it is going too far. While it may not be your brand of humor there are people who like the show, so it’s extremely rude of you to insult it just because you’re upset that a drama was not renewed.

  • The CW made one of the dumbest decisions in the network’s history (and that’s saying something for this bad network) when it cancelled The Secret Circle and Ringer in favor of crap shows like Emily Owens, Beauty and the Beast, 90210, and Hart of Dixie. The CW is reaping what it sowed – falling ratings.

    Comment by Hattie – January 25, 2013 01:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I liked Ringer and eventhough the majority of characters needed brain transplants I thought it had potential. Unfortunately the ratings were bad, even by CW standards. SS was supposed to be the next VD and it failed miserably.

  • Since the idiots at NBC cancelled PRIME SUSPECT I don’t trust their choices. I won’t get invested in any of their shows. It has been 2 years since I stopped watching ABC because of their choices.

    Comment by kay – January 25, 2013 08:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Watched the pilot of Do No Harm, and it’s the most ridiculosuly unbelievable show I’ve ever seen. I love sci-fi, and I’m not that hard to get to suspend disbelief, but that show was absolutely preposterous (and kind distatseful). That’s not going to survive long.

    Comment by Temperence – January 26, 2013 04:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The ratings for this show were the lowest for a series premiere. I decided to try it out instead of watching Suits. If I had it to do over again, I would watch Suits instead. I didn’t really like Do No Harm all that much.

  • I love Emily Owens and will never forgive the CW. I can’t believe you are replacing a cute and adorable comedy with Cult? The President needs to be fired and all the execs making decisions. Emily had little promotion and Cult is getting more, they cancelled Ringer and Secret Circle. CW cancelled Emily Owens after 2 episodes and its competition was the election debates and the MLB World Series in their time slot.

    Comment by Tina B. – January 26, 2013 08:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Emily Owens has aired 12 episodes already and networks don’t do that for shows they cancel after 2 episodes.
