    ABC kept too many low rated shows. They needed to be more brutal and actually act like a multi billion dollar business. TV is always evolving, and they need to learn how to keep up. No wonder it’s in third, wouldn’t be suprised if it fell to fourth next year.

  • Lane

    NBC renewed as many as they cancelled.

  • Tom

    Feels good seeing both Nikita and Community renewed. It’s been a good year, only a couple of shows I watch were cancelled (alcatraz, terra nova, the river) and to be honest I don’t really care that they were.

    Does anyone know when CBS is likely to announce their final decisions?

  • Brett

    The Finder was one of the 3 shows I planned in my schedule. First it was my Thursday night plan, then there was a 4 week laps between shows with no thought of you moving it around. You brought it back a month later on a different night, it took me another month to finally find that you moved it to Friday night. So I made it my Friday night plan. Now you cancel an enjoyable show. I hope the USA network picks this show up just to get it away from the fools at FOX.

    I wish this list was made a few days ago

    Updates would change shows status from ‘Undecided’ to ‘Finished’ (cancelled or renewed)


    Chuck = Finished

    Chuck vs. Cancellation Bear

    Chuck wins

    Feels so weird.

  • mark

    im unsure if i should be upset or happy, many of the shows i like was renewed while some shows i liked was canceled

  • Joyce

    WOW, The Secret Circle cancelled!!! I LOVE that show. CW is stupid for keeping other shows like 90210. It’s been done to death and overrated. Hopefully another network like Syfy or TNT will pick it up.

    I also can’t believe that ABC cancelled GCB and MISSING. GCB was hilarious. MISSING was growing on me. At least they renewed ONCE UPON A TIME and SCANDAL!!!

  • WKD2

    Don’t forget a few of NBC’s shows are for short seasons. NBC is in need of a new programer. I could do better.

  • Mark

    I forgot all about Charlie’s Angels. Wasn’t that blown up after one show?

  • toadytoady

    Do you know if SVU was a full season pick up,22 episodes?

  • josh

    Come on CBS renew TAHM & RoR already!!!

  • Robert Seidman

    @Justin: I’m considering doing an ongoing simple list like this next season instead of “Bubble Watch” with some predicting discussion in the text, but not in the table itself.

  • were123

    Really happy you were wrong about BoP, I’ll be able to watch it again :D

  • RobertN

    I have a feeling that the ratings for Smash will take a nose dive next season.

    Oh, and obligatory RENEW CHUCK!

  • NYC_Lover


    I love the Bubble Watch though!

  • GARY

    the firm is canceled in canada?

  • JustToClarify

    What a great year for renewals, with all of my favourite shows carried over from the previous season returning next year, along with new a huge majority of my new favourites. In fact, the only cancellations of new shows that I liked were Ringer and Missing, both of which I never expected to get a second season anyway.
