In the no surprise at all column (at least for anyone who followed its ratings even infrequently), CBS isn't bringing back freshman Friday drama A Gifted Man according to Variety.

    A lot of good shows have been cancelled because it was on Friday Nights
    Ghost Whisper was a good show,
    So was Medium. They were both cancelled.
    Now you want The Mentalist on Friday nights, so it can be cancelled to. What is
    the matter with a lot of you people. Why do you hate the show so much. It’s a
    really good show. I feel really bad about it. You won’t even give the show a
    chance, Sunday is a really bad night for The Mentalist to.

    @Robert: Good to know.

    And thank you very much for forgetting to burst my Unforgettable bubble. ;)

  • The End

    Clearly isn’t a gifted man if he gets cancelled.

    OH MY GOD why it had really good rating <——– sarcasm

  • Fake Me Out

    Pan Am named best series at the international Rose d’Or TV awards … so how could ABC even think of not renewing at this point? Kathy, Christina, Dana, Poppy and I are all dinning on bear next week … I’m tickled pink! :-)

    Too, too bad about Gifted Man. I watched it from the beginning and really liked it. I think Blue Bloods is terrible – why did it stay? There must be more than ratings that determine a show’s success.

    Its so stupid if A Gifted Man is really cancelled. It’s a really great show. And whybwouldvthey also cancel Csi Miami and NY? I think it’s a lot of false rumors and innuendos. I wish these writers would wait until they have their facts straight before posting their crappy opinions.

    You Gifted Man fans are lucky CBS let it air all of its episodes and didn’t pull it after the 3rd week.

    the only thing surprising about this is that it took them this long to do it.

    @Robert, that sounds like a threat he’s comming back :D

  • Dave

    Very sad. Watched the show religiously. Thought it was always interesting and touching. Sorry to hear, but all the best to the great cast!!

    I am so saddened that “A GIFTED MAN” has been cancelled. This was a really feel good and spiritual show!!! Please rethink your decision….

    It’s funny though b/c A Gifted Man was getting like 8-9 million viewers most weeks doing better more than half of the shows TV but that low demo was killing them.

    The article referenced from Variety also states “CBS, meanwhile, is said to have nixed bringing back freshman drama “A Gifted Man,” and “CSI: Miami” remains a long-shot for an eleventh season renewal. There were a flurry of rumors about frosh drama “Unforgettable” getting a reprieve at the Eye, but the final call won’t be made until the new pilot picks are set.”
    Just saying.

    I would ditto the sentiments expressed here regarding the cancellation of A Gifted Man. That show was good!It was something whole families could watch, unlike too many other shows.

  • robby

    not a surprise i think tommorrow we may know what is going to happen with csi miami and new york

  • Linda

    I love A Gifted Man. Such a shame, so many of my favorites are on the chopping block, either cancelled or probably will be.

  • Shirley

    That sucks !!! Low ratings were due to FRIDAY NIGHT SLOT …. if had been launched on any other night, would have had high ratings !!~
