  • When do we get an update on renewals? I can’t believe there is no further news on The Mentalist yet

    • No news is good news!

      • I hope you’re right.

  • I really like 666 Park Avenue. I had finally found a show that my husband and I both liked to watch. A rare event indeed.
    Besides that mostly everything I watch is okay so far. I will be on pins and needles though waiting on the outcome for Hart of Dixie because I love that show so much.

  • how is Go on still a sure thing? with its 2013 ratings I believe it’s a safe bet at best (regretfully, as I abslutely love the show). And Smash as well… it’s a long shot for sure!
    And don’t know if you have any intel about The Neighbors cause as much as I’d like it to be axed (worst new comedy in 2013) Tvbythenumbers gives it the same likelyhood of being renewed as revenge which is “A sure thing” (BTW in the last 2 weeks the neighbors has been actually pulling better ratings than revenge)

  • What about Rookie Blue on ABC?

    Comment by Christa – February 17, 2013 12:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • CSI NY: Could go either way, what the hell! They can’t cancel it, I know the views haven’t been amazing, but still…it’s been on the air ten years now, and it’s such a good show…I hope it gets renewed

    Comment by Natalie – February 17, 2013 05:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • NIKITA does deserve to be renewed, with and doubt!!! Cause it has gained a good overseas reputation for both itself and CW. It’s neccessary for us to see the next seasons!

    Comment by Sherry – February 17, 2013 08:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Lets us all vote to renew the show Beauty and the Beast! Tell them we love that show and we want it back for a second season! Because, I love Jay Ryan & Kristen Kreuk & Austin Basis!

  • I hope parks and recreation gets at least one for season and NBC does not cancel it this year.

  • Please give Nikita a safe bet!!,

    Comment by Sharonchou – February 19, 2013 12:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • CW’s Beauty and the Beast is a great show! Action,Love,Betrayal and Fun!! I really want it to be renewed for a 2 season.

    Comment by Petra – February 19, 2013 01:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The news that i want so bad now is: Castle renewed for sixth season..
    I hope i’ll have it very soon.

    Comment by siska – February 19, 2013 07:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Me too!!! Monday night’s wouldn’t be the same without Caskett and team. It’s one of the things that makes Mondays bearable

      Comment by MJO – February 19, 2013 07:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Agreed!!! Monday would never be the same without Caskett and Castle is currently the only show I continue to watch week after week so it better get a season 6 and beyond

        Comment by Emily Hansen – April 8, 2013 06:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • ABC would be stupid to cancel it.

          I agree with what Castle said at the end of the 100th.. “Here’s to a 100 more”

          Comment by MJO – April 8, 2013 06:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So glad all of my favorite shows are either a “sure thing” or “officially renewed”–even if some of the next seasons are sure to be their last.

    Comment by Brittany Swenson – February 19, 2013 11:07 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • How can we find out if a cable network show will be renewed and when it would start. I love Longmire and would like to know when it will start?

    Comment by Joey – February 19, 2013 02:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • How about we move Castle to a sure thing?

    Comment by Kate – February 19, 2013 07:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’d like to see Castle officially renewed! That would even be better!

      Comment by MJO – February 20, 2013 06:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Vegas, NCIS: Los Angeles, Castle Law & Order:SVU should be renewed. Without those shows, I wouldn’t be watching what I call regular tv. Plus, they are good. I want to continue to see what Vincent will do. Castle’s romance with Beckett is going good. Law & Order is high on my list as well. NCIS:LA should have already been renewed. Great programming needs to be continued.

  • They HAVE to renew NASHVILLE!!! It’s amazing!!! Please, ABC, please!!!!!!

    Comment by K – February 20, 2013 09:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with your plea K that NASHVILLE deserves to be renewed. It is quite amazing in its artistry of well-rounded conflicted characterizations, the moving and lyrical musical landscape it provides and the wry commentary on the absurd obsession with celebrity/the shady demands of the music industry. NASHVILLE needs to tap into an audience that appreciates its impish appeal and colorful dramatization. The solid acting from the likes of Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere and Charles Esten all warrant Emmy nomination consideration. Here’s hoping that NASHVILLE is able to make its sophomore year on ABC and draw the broadcast recognition it deserves so passionately.

  • Deception a “long shot”? The dumb show is flat lining and one of the main cast members just signed on to another pilot.

    Comment by wacknonymous – February 20, 2013 09:56 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I really hope Go On and The New Normal stick around. I don’t like seeing them drop to lower statuses. I love those shows. I also can’t imagine a world where Law and Order SVU is not on the air.

    Comment by J (@MusicandHouse) – February 20, 2013 09:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Love The New Normal & Go On! Please keep these renewed!

  • They better not cancel Nikita!!!!!!!!! They should pair it up with Arrow.

    Comment by HitTheGroundRunningWonderlandHaleyOhMy – February 20, 2013 01:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hart of Dixie a safe bet in a 2nd season on a tuesday with only 0.5 and Nikita a FRIDAY show in its 3rd season CLOSE to syndication with about the same ratings is could go either way. Is something wrong with this picture. Because i just don’t get this upgrade for Hart of Dixie and not one for Nikita.

    Comment by James – February 20, 2013 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hurrah, Dixie has been changed to a safe bet!!! Awesome news!!!! love this show. So happy. :)

    Comment by Lauren Wilson – February 20, 2013 03:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope Nashville stays around a long time….great show! One of the best in a long while. I will be pi**ed off if ABC cans this show.

    Comment by liz – February 20, 2013 04:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Can’t believe some of these shows that got renewed. Getting to the point hardly watch anything. keep my CBS Friday night I’ll be happy CSI NY Blue Bloods never miss an episode

    Comment by Angela – February 20, 2013 06:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It seems they are renewing shows that need to be cancelled.

      Comment by Debra Brown – February 20, 2013 08:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Nathan Fillion might just have secured an extra 2 seasons for Castle after his performance the other night :p… Ratings/Popularity is one argument, which Castle is not short of but creditability and quality would have to be serious factors. If you got that level of talent on your payroll, represnting your brand, you’d be trying to hold onto that I’d say :)

    Comment by Eden – February 20, 2013 07:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That kind of talent is what makes us watch tv. Renew Castle.

      Comment by Debra Brown – February 20, 2013 08:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I totally agree!

        Comment by MJO – February 21, 2013 06:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Exactly! Castle’s serious side, due to the kidnapping of his daughter, was simply sensational! This guy IS talented! Loved the writing, when he was asked by Beckett, “What did you do to that guy in there,” replied, “I appealed to his HUMANITY”! (ouch!) That and the time they did a close up of Castle’s face, ever so slightly, doing an Elvis(twitch) impression… my all-time favorite “Castle” moments. And the show keeps getting better and better!

      Comment by cmaglaughlin – February 20, 2013 09:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Fillion is an out of this world talent. The episode was just heart wrenching.

    Castle would have just about been a sure thing before but after that… take me home mate

  • Based on these predictions it looks like Nbc is having some trouble.
    As long as they renew Community I’m okay with thej.

  • I really hope cbs renews The Mentalist. I’ve never been so worried about a show that was marked as “a safe bet” before.

    Comment by Roxanne – February 22, 2013 05:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • CBS please renew CSI:N.Y. It has been a great season. The writing was better and I love Gary and Sela…..well the entire cast actually. I have been watching for years and it would break my heart if this show gets cancelled. :(

    Comment by liz – February 22, 2013 09:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with you totally. Mac’s girlfriend is great. The show needs to continue.

      Comment by Debra Brown – February 22, 2013 09:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So far 3 of my shows have been renewed, Supernatural, NCIS and the Big bang theory, still waiting on Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, Castle, Heart of Dixie and Law and Order SVU hopefully these shows will also be renewed

    Comment by Jessica Valure – February 22, 2013 09:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m also waiting for Law & Order:SVU to be renewed and Castle, too.

    • I’m with you on The Mentalist.

      Comment by Charlotte – February 24, 2013 10:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The Neighbors on ABC is a funny show! It took an episode or two for me to want to watch it but I’m glad I did. I’ve said it before, The Neighbors paired with Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing is a perfect anchor for the return of ABC’s TGIF. Just get one or two more light-hearted, funny, with a “moral to the story” type feel and ABC has Friday nailed!

    Comment by Mark – February 22, 2013 04:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • My family loves Last Man Staining! Its a good, funny family comedy. Please renew the show.

  • Please let The Mindy Project be cancelled. It is awful.

    Comment by Klyde – February 22, 2013 05:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Why is The Neighbors listed as a long shot? It is listed as almost certain for renewal on other sites. Its ratings certainly are on par with The Middle and Suburgatory.

    Comment by Brett Heitkam – February 22, 2013 09:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The Neighbors is a cute shoe! We enjoy it. Please renew it

  • Whoo..! Castle’s a sure thing!! Now all i need is an “Officially Renewed” and I’m partying in La-la Land! And I desperately wish Castle has ATLEAST 7 seasons. 6 is waaaaaay too soon imho…

    • I like that, too. I love the show.

      Comment by Debra Brown – February 23, 2013 10:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Well at least we have a great update on Castle. Now how about some news on The Mentalist. Ridiculous that they are hanging it out so long. Should have been a sure thing from the start. Those two shows and NCIS are my 3 not to be missed. So news please.

    • We LOVE Vegas! It’s such a GREAT show. I can’t believe it got switched to Friday nights. That’s a hard night. That’s where most shows go to die! Please renew it! Put it on another night & time. It’s a excellent show!

      Comment by Elizabeth – April 3, 2013 03:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m sad that Smash is a long shot. It’s such a great and different show and the cast is amazing. I hope it’s saved.

      • History will record how L. Gerstein destroyed Hart of Dixie in just one episode! The real Wade would NEVER have cheated on Zoe, but Gerstein had to force it anyway, just to settle her pet peeve that Wade was more beloved than George!!!

        Comment by David P. Hoadley – February 28, 2013 11:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I would have to agree with you. Wade has changed so much in season two..it just seemed out of character for him. I hope that this episode wasn’t the end of the show

  • I want to cry seeing that Go On got demoted… I can’t see another good new show get axed. Keep it, NBC! Move it to Thursdays and pair it with Parks and Rec!

    Comment by Babybop – February 24, 2013 04:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • All I know is that if The Neighbors survives and Happy Endings doesn’t, I’m gonna be devastated. Same goes for Guys With Kids/Whitney and Community/The New Normal/Parks & Rec.

  • Any updates on the Carrie Diaries? I think I’ve fallen in love with it! More heart than a lot of shows aimed at teens etc. it’s cute and sassy! Please let it go on! The acting, music and the fashions are great (although I did see one of my cardigans from last year on Carrie :P )

  • WeI enjoy Vegas…it is set in the 60′s. It is a entertaining flash back, cars, clothes,music. and morals. I enjoy the actors too! Hoping it gets renewed it is something different to watch!
