The cancellation bear is eating well today. Emily Owens, MD has been officially canceled by the CW, but the network has announced that all 13 episodes ordered will air.

This was no surprise to anyone paying attention, and/or following our predictions all season long.

    Sad to see a well written and fun medical show cancelled. Go figure.

    Nikki, it’s “should’ve”

    I wasn’t that thrilled with EO (though I did enjoy seeing Justin on TV again) and I’m hardly surprised that it’s been cancelled. However, I can’t be the only one out here who is through watching new shows. What’s the point in watching a show until and unless it makes it to at least the 3rd season? I’m tired of wasting 10-13 hours of my life for shows that end abruptly and had no chance to begin with, anyway. The networks are going to cancel x amount of shows every season no matter what just so they can premiere a bunch of new shows the next season (most of which will be cancelled for the NEXT season’s batch of time-wasters). It’s a silly, vicious cycle and the entire system needs an overhaul, IMO.

    I finally saw the financial numbers for Emily Owens last week and they were doing terribly overseas. This show isn’t that cheap to make either. I knew the end was near on this one and it had nothing to do with the domestic ratings either.

    Go back to May and uncancel Ringer and Secret Circle to be honest.

  • Ginger

    If she wasn’t pregnant, I’d saw make the fan boys happy and have Sarah Michelle Gellar join the cast of Nikita.

  • Tom

    @ Ginger SMG gave birth to her son in September. Moreover, she was getting $100k per episode on Ringer. I doubt if the budget for Nikita would support anything close to that.

    “Emily Owens, M.D.” gets checkup:

    Emily: I don’t feel so good. What did you find.

    Second Doctor: I have bad news, Emily. You have a terminal illness. You’re going to die soon.

    Owens (breaking into tears): What fatal illness?

    Second Doctor: You have a terminal case of Low Nielsenus. You only have a few weeks to live.

    Owens: Can you do anything to stretch the time I have left??

    Second Doctor: No….

    (then the Second Doctor removes his human doctor mask, only to reveal that in reality, he is……..The Cancellation Bear!)

    (Cancellation Bear growls and Emily flees office, running scared and chased by the Cancellation Bear. But it’s too late. He catches up with her, and an abrupt cut to black)

    Lol, at Nikita and The Secret Circle Circle freaks thinking this announcement means their shows are coming back or even that the failure of this show is justification that their crap shows deserved second seasons.

    Those shows are dead and gone. NO network drama has ever been cancelled and off the air for 7 months and then returned to network TV. It just doesn’t happen.

  • Ray

    The Secret Circle would have outperformed Emily Owens and Beauty & the Beast. Network is run by idiots with no foresight.

    TSC was rightfully cancelled. What a terrible, mindless crap. I wonder how old all these supposedly fans are that watch TSC? I can’t picture anyone older than 14 watching it.

    @Anthony Parello: Nikita is still on the air. Did you meant to say Ringer?

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)


    Lol, totally meant to say Ringer.

    I hope I did not jinx Nikita for the fans :-)

  • lll

    This website was right about the cancellation the first time. Too bad you all had to retract it only to post it again later.

  • Lalu

    Sad… I enjoy this show :(

  • juju

    Noooo can’t believe it….. So that means that in order for a medical show 2 be succesful they have to be like “Grey’s anatomy” kinda enviroment?!! It’s so unfair i really like it!!! …. About “Ringer” i think they moved 2 fast on some things an character , but it promised to be good …… It’s not fair

    I am very disappointed in CW. Emily Owens MD was one of the few GOOD shows left in this world and no one is even smart enough to realize it. That show was very light and it taught good lessons that should have swayed viewers. I guess I was wrong. Fine, let the people drown in the filth we call television. All that disgusting over emphasized drama and ‘Romance’.

  • Cuia

    nonononononono! I LOVE Emily!
    Bring her back right now or I will be very upset!

  • Oceana

    I, for one, love this series. I don’t understand how shows like 90210 and Gossip Girl can last for so long, and shows like Secret Circle and Emily Owens, MD not be given a chance. Boo!

  • RIn

    The last show on cw I watch is now only Hart of Dixie. I actually liked Emily Owens MD and if they get rid of HOD I’m done with cw.

  • pol

    they should have cancelled beauty and the beast instead!
