  • rehabber

    No tears for TSC, just could not get connected with the characters, did not care what happened to them, unlike SPN, TVD & Hart of Dixie, I laugh and cry with them.

  • eddy

    Love NIKITA….I have one more year to look forward for

  • Kembek

    “Missing” is/was really good, but ABC did nothing to promote it. No promotion, no viewers.

  • Samuel Adams

    “ABC kept too many low rated shows”

    Yep. Scandal should be toast.

  • Rebecca

    This is a great, well-formatted list – THANK you. I hope this can be done in future Mays, lol. Then you can just keep updating, like Justin said, from “Undecided” to “Canceled” or “Renewed” or “Finished” and there’d be one long thread of comments. Because I swear over the last few days I don’t remember where or what I commented on the other threads and I’m not going to look for them any more. Thanks again. Haven’t looked at the new series post, but that’s a great thing to do, too.

  • Alan

    ABC Family has to save The Secret Circle :( A lot of fans are suggesting them to pick up the show. I hope it happens

  • Richard

    As I said in another thread, with all that was cancelled this season, I only have 2 shows returning that air on a network stations:

    The Voice and Law & Order SVU

    Next year I am not even going to give any of the new shows on networks a try. With the way things are they can’t afford to give them a chance any longer unless your something like Chuck or Fringe or Gossip Girl or The Good Wife, etc. that constantly got or get low ratings but keep getting chance after chance after chance.

    I have slowly this year been picking up more and more cable shows. I will finish out the run of SVU and The Voice until it plays out but I am going to stick with cable. At least there with most shows they give them a chance to build audiences. Besides that even their critically acclaimed shows (those like the very boring The Good Wife or the very unfunny Modern Family) are at least interesting or funny.

  • Dodge_hickey

    Kinda sad to see NBC canceled half there schedule! They really need to sit down and do some proper planning or else the network is done in the next few years!

    There were 3 shows I cared about this year (renewed!) csnt trust FOX after last year

  • Dan

    Why would NBC cancel Awake??? It was sooo good. Bring it back!! One of the most clever shows on the air.

  • MJDB


    Because of horrible ratings!

  • RG-X

    I’m glad Parenthood, Raising Hope & original CSI is renewed – also my new show I now like; Last Man Standing.

    I will continue to watch Touch – I was starting to lose interest – but last 2 episodes have been good.

    I wish Awake stayed – I’m glad I bailed 4 weeks ago – I knew it wasn’t going to make it —too bad.

  • cheryl m


    Im so with you on that its hard to know which network i hate more Fox or NBC for its cancellations.

  • RG-X

    Bonus: GCB cancelled – Excellent – I didn’t know this! :)

  • cheryl m

    I wish someone would pick up Awake it was a great show and Jason Isaacs is a great actor to good for nbc thats for sure.Same goes for maria bello with prime suspect.

  • Alisson Muniz

    Chuck, Miss You :'(

  • stanly

    im starting to get really nervous for csi miami if its canceled or not

  • Elizabeth

    So annoyed that pretty much all of my favorite shows were cancelled. Finally some shows with interesting story lines and they’re cancelled. Awake, The River, Alcatraz, Terra Nova were all shows which had story lines that was captivating and I was anxious to see unfold.

  • Kathi

    Shocked ABC renewed Body of Proof but very pleased. Sad that Alcatraz didn’t make it for season #2 but no surprise there or for some others that were cut. I fully expected both Unforgettable and CSI: NY to bite the dust too and will miss Unforgettable but have lost interest in NY – hope Miami goes too as it is beyond awful and should have been cancelled years ago.

  • Max

    Glad NBC kept Whitney, but they should have axed The Office.

  • Max

    Oh, just for the record, H8R was a cancelled show on CW.
