Update: Rob has now been canceled too.

Not close to a surprise, but CBS has canceled freshman UnforgettableNYC 22 now officially dead too, along with other freshman A Gifted Man.

The daily ratings might not give you a full read on a show's popularity, but they still give a pretty full read on what shows will be canceled and renewed.

    more dull proceduals cancelled can only be good news

  • greenf

    Is Person of Interest any good? I love most JJ Abrams shows (Fringe, Alias, Lost). Is POI just a boring CBS procedural or does it have something more?

  • Joanne

    I enjoyed Unforgettable. I am glad CBS did not cancel CSI NY. CSINY and Blue Bloods revitalized Friday night.

  • josh


    To me is just another cop show but many people here wont agree

    It cant compare with Alias or Lost

  • hardline_pro

    @josh – How is it just another cop show? The two main characters aren’t even cops!

  • J

    Waiting in excitement about ROE.

    BETTER get renewed!

  • Alison

    YOU CANCELLED UNFORGETTABLE I HATE YOU FOR THIS CBS… I woulda hated you more if you cancelled this and my CSI New York

  • Survivor Fan

    Does anybody know anything about Rules?

  • Bunny

    Rules of Engagement is owned by Sony…So I feel it’s going to stick around for awhile…

  • a p garcia

    No surorise execpt ROB, it had much potential.

  • Bunny

    Sony pictures are relentless in saving their shows..

  • Lane

    Is Rules of Engagment renewed?

    Unforgettable wasn’t all that good to begin with. It wasn’t bad. There was chemistry between the main characters and the acting was good. It just wasn’t exciting. I could also see it coming that the guy the suspected of her sister’s murder wasn’t actually the murderer and, when Al gave him a gun near the end of the season finale, I knew he was going to die.

    One thing that completely ruined it for me was the scene where the character Walter Morgan falls into the water from a bridge after Carrie had to let him go. Second to last episode, Endgame.

    It looked so freaking unrealistic and stupid when he fell. He fell as if he was a piece of paper… Way too slow for a full grown man. That scene was worse than the Ringer boatscene.

    @greenf: Ignore the JJ Abrams connection. What really makes Person of Interest work is the writing and story development, both of which can be laid on the shoulders of Jonathan Nolan. He’s doing a brilliant job developing his characters and creating lots of interesting story arcs (rather than most procedurals where you have one big story arc that takes forever to go anywhere).

  • Christy

    I feel really bad about Unforgettable and CSI got canceled. They were both really good shows,

  • Nancee

    Shame on CBS for cancelling A Gifted Man! I thought that show was amazing! Nothing good to watch on your network! Jerks…

  • KJ Styles

    I laugh at all these people whining about low rated shows being cancelled. I can see the case for CSI Miami fans because CSI NY is clearly lower rated. But everything else was cancellation worthy. I kinda liked Rob, but I’m not surprised or saddened by it being cancelled. The funny part though is, Rules is the only show left who’s fate hasn’t been decided. I predict they’ll either cancel it, or renew it for a 13 episode final season and timeshare it.

    People that are bashing Person Of Interest can go play in rush hour traffic on the highway. POI is a much better show than anything listed in this article and gets better ratings too, so tell your story walking….or should I say crying, BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

  • psychic

    Darn it. I like Unforgettable. :c
    WTF, NYC 22? It has like three episodes on air. How can you cancel something without giving it a chance?

  • SteveA

    @ KJ People are fans of shows, not fans of ratings. So it’s natural for people to be upset about the shows they liked being cancelled, no matter what the ratings were.

  • KJ Styles

    @SteveA- I understand that, but people gotta understand that when their shows don’t get ratings, 9 times out of 10 they get cancelled. That whole “I’ll never watch anything on said network because said ratings loser got cancelled” is ridiculous. Network execs have no choice but to get rid of low rated shows because they lose networks money. I can see why fans of CSI Miami are upset, because CSI NY was clearly the lower rated and less popular show, but everybody else needs to just get over it.

    Shows that I’ve liked in the past have been cancelled too. The only thing people can really do is try and get their friends/loved ones to watch the shows they like. I did that with Person Of Interest and Scandal and they’ve been renewed.
