As you may have noticed, The Mob Doctor's timeslot is currently occupied by The Following in FOX's winter premiere announcement. So does that mean that the show has been canceled? The release doesn't say it outright, but considering The Mob Doctor has been on death watch for quite some time, could this be the announcement we've all been waiting for? Or is The Mob Doctor determined to stay on life support, despite its flagging vital signs? Cast your vote and tell us why in the comments!

    To me, the answer is obvious. They need to take back Wednesday 10PM from the local affiliates in exchange for Friday 9PM. Nikita, Supernatural, Arrow mega block would do great. Heavy male skewing genre show Wednesday. Then its not 1.) On the impossible to do well Friday death slot and 2.) Not against 2 competing genre shows.

    It’ll probably be in May, we’ll ask about it and Fox will pretend it never happened.Mind games!

    I think it’s been done for a while. Fox doesn’t want to admit failure though. I could see them swapping places for Kitchen Nightmares starting in mid November. Friday’s a death spot, perfect for the Doctor. Mondays, Fox wants a shot at doing something and Nightmares can serve as a placeholder until January, when Following takes over.

    I think if the Mob Doctor is not renewed after it airs its 13 episodes, for me I would view that as a cancellation, the failure to secure a second season or even additional episodes for a full first season might technically be assessed as a non-renewal but in my book its down as both.

    That might sound strange but just how I view it, Fox are going to burn off the rest of these episodes as filler, shame cos it sounded good but if you cant get the ratings then air on Showtime.

    I’m demanding the Mob Doctor be brought back on air. Loved the show. Rerun the pilot on weekends and drum up more followers if you have to but bring it back. NOW!!!! PLEASE!!!
