  • Victoria

    Are the dates wrong on this article? should it say the 2012-2013 season? Or is this an old article?

  • Ultima

    Are the dates wrong on this article

    No, it is about the shows airing in the 2011-12 season.

  • Shelley

    Sad to hear GCB is cancelled. It was good.

  • Joseph

    @Robert Seidman
    Can you change how you are showing Cougar Town , show it instead shows as canceled and moved to TBS .
    Any easy way to include the average series ratings in the chart for show?

  • Ben

    How ironic that CBS, which renewed 14 shows in early March, still has 5 programs whose fate is undecided, (plus NYC 22 which has vultures flying overhead waiting to land). Fox has two programs and CW one, which is going to Canada.

  • Gee

    I’m going to miss Ringer….

  • poshreany

    NBC has cancelled as much as they renewed… wow…

  • Danielle

    I’m really sad that Awake and The Finder were both cancelled. Awake was definitely my new favorite series this season, I truly thought it had at least another season in it…

  • Danielle

    Also, the Friday night death slot on Fox claims another victim…

  • jimmy

    i am dissapointed that the finder got cancelled i watched every episode.

  • Bill Gorman

    “Also, the Friday night death slot on Fox claims another victim…”

    Are you referring to The Finder?

    It didn’t die because it was moved to Friday.

    It was moved to Friday because it was *already* dead.

  • Bill Gorman

    “How ironic that CBS, which renewed 14 shows in early March, still has 5 programs whose fate is undecided, (plus NYC 22 which has vultures flying overhead waiting to land).”

    I’m not sure I’d call that “ironic”, just a case of CBS having much better operational security than the other guys to keep their remaining moves “secret” until their upfront day (Tuesday).

  • Bill Gorman

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

    This list is just scripted shows.

  • Richard

    Secret Circle deserved to be chancelled.

    Last March they were supposed to be at a fan convention. Literally at the last hour they cancelled after fans spents $50 a ticket. The show’s people offered no reason or apology. If they have no loyalty to their fans why should the fans have any loyalty to the show? Shows that disrespect their fans deserve to be cancelled.

  • hannah

    this is not fair the secret circle was the best show ever and it was just getting good u canceled the best shows and left all the stupid ones hate u guys never watching any of ur shows again

  • Mika

    Maybe this time Breaking In will also stay dead. :p

  • mozzer

    @Richard –> Here’s a tissue. Now go cry somewhere else.

  • larenz

    NBC is going to lose a lot of people next year!!!!!!

  • Tammy

    I Can Not believe they canceled The Finder it was a great show then how they ended it makes it even worse. Why don’t they get rid of the stupid reality TV shows Jeez people watch TV to get away from real life..

  • I like this show

    Not a ton of surprises in the shows that bit the dust. House ending (not canceled some of you…) is sad. Fox REALLY needs to find a new hit drama Bones is meh and not sure Touch makes another season. Fox also needs to keep Bob’s Burgers over Napoleon. I don’t care for Bob’s that much but Napoleon is just down right terrible. Since House is gone i think Simpsons and American Dad are all that’s left that I watch.

    NBC lol. I tried watching the firm and NBC decided to crush it so I gave up. Wasn’t that bad to me. Only thing I watch on this network is Parks and Rec.

    ABC…I almost said I don’t watch anything on this network. Modern Family is ok and the B is on after it ha. As for the rest…. a notch above NBC for me.

    CBS so glad POI found legs and is staying for another season. Big Bang and Survivor are the only other shows I watch. 2 and half bland needs to die. Without Sheen the show is unfunny…mud.

    Hopefully these networks get some new good shows or people will continue to tune our in favor of:USA AMC FX HBO Showtime CINMAX. Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, SOA, The League, It’s Always Sunny, Shameless, Homeland.
