The dust appears to have settled — for now.
A total of 12 broadcast series were dispatched to TV’s graveyard on Thursday as the major networks began cleaning house in advance of next week’s fall presentations (aka the Upfronts). The body count was highest at ABC, which axed series both established (American Crime), fledgling (Imaginary Mary) and long presumed dead (Conviction, Notorious).
Fox, meanwhile, pulled the plug on rookie series Making History, Son of Zorn and APB. Even NBC got into the act (R.I.P. Powerless.)
The good news? Thursday is over. The bad news? The next 72 hours will likely bring additional cancellations (review our 2017 Renewal Scorecard for a complete rundown of the remaining in-limbo series).
But there’s no sense worrying about what could be. Let’s spend our time stressing about what already is. It’s in that spirit that we direct you to the poll below. We lost a lot of shows today, kids.
