  • Chris

    NBC has a lot of canceled.
    I hope CBS renew Unforgettable I really like the show.

  • Lisa

    THE FINDER, HARRYS LAW, CANCELED?!?!?!?! That FOX and NBC**** SUCK**** other than those to shows will NOT be watching!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Justin121

    @Robert, I think that would be an excellent idea, but the last, pre-upfrotns edition would have to be updated daily.

  • morningtvwatcher

    Sorry I need to make a Correction: So please Ignore my Post ABOVE

    My Prediction for remaining Shows:

    CBS: Only 7 have not been announced but most of them is pretty clear

    CSI: NY Cancelled
    CSI Miami: Renewed
    NYC 22 Cancelled
    Rob Cancelled
    Rules of Engagement Renewed-Mid season Back-Up
    Two and a Half Men Renewed
    Unforgettable Cancelled

    Napoleon Dynamite Cancelled
    Bob’s Burgers Cancelled

    The L.A. Complex Renewed

  • Common Anomaly


    It doesn’t look clear to me. You think CSI:Miami will be both canceled and renewed.

  • NYC_Lover


    LA Complex wont be renewed….period.

  • morningtvwatcher

    @Common Anomaly

    I just said that I needed to make a Correction so ignore my first post. But now they are on two septate pages.

    But I think Miami will be renewed and NY will get cancelled.

  • Justin121

    What does everyone think of my list for surprise renewals / cancellations / hits /flops .

    Back in Page 2.

  • josh

    @Common Anomaly

    RoE ..typo

  • morningtvwatcher


    I disagree about 30 Rock since it’s has been on he air for 6 Years.

  • JC

    So at this point all I am waiting on is the decisions for NYC 22, CSI: Miami, and Unforgettable. The first 4 episodes of NYC 22 are sitting on my DVR but I am not getting invested in it if it is just going to go away. Learned my lesson with too many NBC shows. I’ll wait for word before I watch the first ep.

  • NYC_Lover

    What I think will happen to the undecided shows:

    Rules of Engagement – CANCELLED
    Two and a Half Men – RENEWED
    Unforgettable – CANCELLED

    Napoleon Dynamite – CANCELLED
    Bob’s Burgers – RENEWED midseason back up

    The L.A. Complex – CANCELLED

  • Nick

    My predictions:

    CSI: Miami 38% chance. Cancelled
    CSI: NY 17% chance. Cancelled
    NYC 22 1% chance. Cancelled
    Rob 12% chance. Cancelled
    Rules of Engagement 88% chance. Renewed
    Two and a Half Men 98% chance. Renewed
    Unforgettable 7% chance. Cancelled

    The L.A. Complex 1% chance. Cancelled

    Napoleon Dynamite 28% chance. Cancelled
    Bob’s Burgers 51% chance. Renewed… Barely

  • Bill Gorman

    @JC, no chance that NYC 22 comes back. Adjust your DVR storage accordingly.

  • JC

    CSI: Miami has long been a favorite of mine, but after 10 seasons I am ok if they cancel it. That said, 232 episodes should at least warrant a series finale episode.

  • Stan

    Scandal was renewed

  • Nick

    @NYC Lover
    RoE will get renewed because at the end of this season it will have 1 eposode left until syndication. CBS isn’t stupid enough to cancell a mediocre show within reach of syndication.

  • Ultima

    Surprise Renewals

    Body of Proof – surprise is an understatement!!

    Cougar Town moving to TBS – agree

    Hart of Dixie, Nikita – not suprised that either was renewed, suprised that both were though

    Fringe – disagree; low ratings, but it wasn’t out of left field

    Raising Hope, Touch – eh, cases could be made both ways for both, more suprised at Touch

    Up All Night – disagree, even though I thought it would be canceled, I wasn’t suprised at the renewal

    Surprise Cancellations

    The Secret Cirlce – disagree; it’s ratings collapsed the second half of the season

    House – disagree; a lot of people thought this would be the final season a year ago

    Harry’s Law – strongly disagree; it was a certain cancellation back in the fall!

    Since I disagree with them all, I’ll add my thoughts. I’d say the biggest suprise cancellation wise is probably Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Or maybe both CSI spinoffs getting canceled if it happens.

  • legallpn

    This great work! You guys are really on top of things.

  • Androme

    Nick, RoE is NOT mediocre. If it was, it would’ve been canceled after the first season. And it didn’t. Oh, and it will be renewed.
