Which New Broadcast TV Show Will Be Canceled Next? (Poll)

Just 4 hours after our last "Which New Broadcast Show Will Be Canceled Next?" poll, both 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort were canceled by ABC. 666 Park Avenue was #2 in that poll, while Last Resort was #4. The season's dinner menu for the Cancellation Bear has also included Partners, Made In Jersey, Animal Practice, Private Practice, and Next Caller.

Which show will be next on the menu of the Cancellation Bear?

I've also added the "A show not on this list" option if you think a veteran show will be canceled next.

Better to Follow The Bear, Than Be Chased By Him. This season you can follow the Cancellation Bear on Twitter via @TheCancelBear. The Cancellation Bear will retweet all the Renew/Cancel Index post titles and links as well as engage in a little more back and forth banter than we do on our standard @TVbytheNumbers Twitter feed.

Because comment thread lawyers are everywhere, let's be clear that for the purposes of this poll "canceled" means removed from its initially scheduled timeslot, either off the air entirely or rescheduled to a burn off timeslot, even if the network *claims* the show will return later (two seasons ago those who answered The Whole Truth in the "next to be canceled" poll ended up being correct, it was removed first among the shows noted and never returned, despite initial ABC claims to the contrary).

What's your guess?

Vote as many times as you want!

    I still voted for the Mob Doctor, l’ll be right one day ;)

    Mod Dr will be cancelled but show all 13 cuz they dont have anything else, not even enough shows to repeat. Paid too much $$ to Brittney Spears couldn’t afford more backup shows. How embarrassing for FOX.

  • Tom

    Man, we are down to brass tacks now.

    Does CW cancel EOMD and air a repeat (no sign of any emergency reality order) on Fridays before Mob Doctor finishes its run on (probably) January 14th?

    I don’t see it, so I think we have no news until after MD finishes its run.

    Today is the Thanksgiving meal of the cancellation bear, will it eat the Mob Doctor too by the end of the day?

  • John A

    EMILY OWENS or Mob Doc obviously.

  • Eric

    My guess is The Mob Doctor or Emily Owens. Also hoping for cancellations for Ben & Kate, The New Normal, Guys with Kids, The Neighbors, Beauty and the Best, and Revolution. If you couldn’t already tell, I dislike almost all of the new fall shows. hahaha

  • Eugenius

    the list is getting shorter :)

    and for the record, Mob Doctor is canceled too, they just didn’t announce it, perhaps they’ll announce towards the end of it which is totally useless.

    ABC didn’t launch a successful series this year, and it will be a huge mistake if they put another newbie in that death spot. I’ll put a curse on them if they will :)

    Poor ABC, it’s basically the new NBC.

    So glad to hear Last Resort got canceled. I gave up after the first episode. The premise was so lame…a submarine runs aground on a deserted island? Gee, who was the captain? The same moron who navigated the Costa Concordia cruise ship in Italy earlier this year? Guys with Kids needs to be the next show to go. It’s a horrible show and Anthony Anderson is more annoying than he is funny. Then, New Normal needs to go.

  • Honey Badger

    Wow, the Cancellation Bear devoured two shows at once.
    What is the record for canceled shows in one day or a week?

    I say 4 shows will be cancelled before the next week is over.

  • Anthony

    If I am not mistake, besides Malibu Country (which just premiered) the only shows on the list not to have received a back order are Mob Doctor, and Emily Owens, so obviously it will be one of them. My guess is Mob Doctor, since we already know The Following will be replacing it on the schedule, and that will be accurate as long as Emily doesn’t get pulled at mid season as well.

  • Honey Badger

    Wow, the Cancellation Bear devoured two shows at once.
    And 3 in one day 11/16/2012.

    ‘Partners’ Canceled by CBS and ‘Last Resort’ and ’666 Park Avenue’ Canceled by ABC today.
    Wow, the Cancellation Bear is running wild, Go Cancellation Bear Go, there are a lot more shows for you

    What is the record for canceled shows in one day or a week?

    I say 4 shows will be cancelled before the next week is over.

  • j

    It’d be funny if Mob Doctor outlasted 2+ more shows.

  • brian I

    Emily Owens M.D is my favorite show on the cw and the only one i watch.

  • Joseph

    i’m stubborn i’ll keep voting for the mob doctor. We all know it should have been the first one to go but Fox is more stubborn than me i guess.

  • steve

    Fox might aswell just get it over with and official cancel the mob doctor and air the remaining episodes

  • david

    I like Emily Owens MD but a .3 or .4 for that matter is very bad. So i voted for that one.

  • DW

    the mob doc is done. they are doing what ABC did today , just not saying it for some odd reason.

  • Hugh

    Emily Owens. Mob Doctor seems to be getting a pass. They must have paid for all the episodes already

  • Alec

    It has GOT to be the mob doctors turn

  • Carrrie

    Mr. Bear, please let it be Guys with Kids.
