    Is it just me or does the thumbs up guy at the top have a freakishly long thumb?

  • eyal

    I just love to see “renewed” next to GG & HOD.

  • Marsinvestigations1

    Yeah. Don’t forget to avoid the produced episodes of a now canceled show because it won’t be on for five years… Looks a at DVDs of wonderfalls. Veronica mars. Firefly. My so called life. Freaks and geeks.

    Why people always insist on avoiding good TV because it might not have a “planned end” is stupid to me. 8 episodes or 100 episodes. You either enjoy it when it’s on or you don’t…

  • MrTrent

    Looks like FOX is dead to me. Maybe their new shows will spark some interest.

  • Robert Seidman
  • Sam

    lol, NBC = as much cancellation than renewals

  • E. Rector

    I have something to say to Awake fans, “stop whining”. If people really gave a damn about Awake (being on NBC), they would have been watching it! The numbers it pulls are cable numbers, like that trash show Harry’s Law (which Thank God it finally got canceled), Awake has NO demo and barely a viewing audience (which Harry’s Law barely had in senior citizen’s who are cashing their SSI checks).

    To Fans of every other canceled NBC show: “Shut up”, if your show pulled below 1.5 on NBC weekly, and didn’t improve, it was DOA anyway.

    To Fans of Smash, the only reason the show got renewed, is because it’s using The Voice like a crutch, and now it’s pulling higher 1.X’s, so “Smash crash” is happening and will happen next year because I don’t see NBC keeping it there when they’ll put a new drama or 2 new comedies in Smash’s place for those The Voice demo numbers.

  • hardline_pro

    NBC literally canceled one half of their shows.

  • bebbo

    OMG YES!!! i’m so happy nikita’s been renewed for a third season!

  • katelyn

    Never thought I would ever see Body of Proof under the renewed category again. Thank You ABC!!!

  • Wilbur

    To bad, so sad, but you were wrong with “Body of Proof”. I love it and even with all your negative comments, it has been renewed.

  • Robbee65

    Soooooo happy BoP was renewed. We older people need good dramas too. Liked The Secret Circle and really suprisrf it got the axe. The CW always has such a big lapse between new shows in Dec & Jan. A big mistake.

  • Robert Seidman

    List now updated w/Two and a Half Men renewal.

  • lora

    I do not want the secret circle to be canceled… ughhhh… At least end it right and not when everything is getting good…

  • DTravel

    Huh, a few pleasant surprises among the renewals.

  • a p garcia

    I agree with all execpt GCB & Pam Am & Terra Nova. BOP renewal was a surprise. I wouldn’t send The Cancelation after Harry’s Law b/c Kathy Bates may dine on BBQed bear.

  • SalaciousCrumb

    Shouldnt SNF be on the renewed list….it is a show.

  • H8R

    Renewed- Bob’s Burgers
    Cancelled- Napoleon Dynamite

    Renewed- 2.5 Men,RoE,CSI:Miami
    Cancelled- Unforgettable,CSI:NY,Rob and NYC 22

  • halfpintdynamite

    I am so disappointed that Harry’s Law and A Gifted Man were cancelled. So many of the shows renewed I never watch. Happens to all of us at one time or another, but still…The ratings usually are based on the mid-twenties-30s, leaving out a lot of us who are way older than that. And we’re often the people with more disposable income! Go figure!

  • Pete

    Its absolutely disgusting that TSC wasnt renewed. The CW can go burn in hell.
