E!'s Save One Show Is Back!




Save One Show 2013: Vote to Rescue Your Favorite Endangered Series!


It's that time, TV fans! Save One Show time! We've prepped you all week with insider info on all your favorite shows that are on the bubble, and now you need to put that info to good use!


In case you are unfamiliar with the Save One Show competition, here is the gist:


Every spring, right around this time, the network executives decide which shows will live or be axed for the upcoming TV season, and our Save One Show campaign gives you guys the opportunity to pick the series that most deserves to stick around. And then we fight like hell to make sure it does!

After we get our winner, we announce it on E! News and on E! Online, and then we take your message directly to that network. The powers that be will get your message loud and clear. And in the past decade, we've successfully help rescues shows like Felicity, Angel and One Tree Hill. When we get down to the final round, we even get the stars of the shows involved. Last year, Community was our winner, and it lived to see another season.


Below are 25 network shows on the bubble; only 10 will make it to the next round. Brutal, but necessary. This poll closes on Sunday, April 21 at 9 p.m. PT. Good luck!

    I am surprised some of these are buble shows likie Parenthood. I am thinking Parenthood and Hanibal and last Man Standing will be renewed. Beauty and the Beast i like and i want it to be renewed.

  • Bill

    Deception, then Golden Boy, then Vegas.

  • Aquitar

    Happy Endings (duh), Beauty & the Beast (don’t judge me, the second half of the season has improved GREATLY lol), and Suburgatory (even though I doubt it’s in any real trouble, but if it is, this needs the most saving!).

  • Ysa


    Need I stress more?

  • TV viewer

    Rules of Engagement. I know it’s going to be cancelled because there’s no room on CBS’s fall schedule for Golden Boy, CSI: NY, Vegas, or Rules of Engagement, but, I worry that it will be replaced with another Rob, or Partners, and CBS will not have ROE to fall back on in January 2014.

  • Dani

    Nikita all the way!

  • Nick

    Body of Proof, Malibu Country, and Touch. I’d also say Last Man Standing, Hart of Dixie, and Suburgatory if they were actually in danger.

  • Chris

    Body of Proof!! :)

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Stupid, stupid people…

    Hannibal is the only show that interests me that might end up needing to be saved. Nikita is already a lock for renewal so that doesn’t worry me – and I expected it to be canceled LAST season. :-)

    No show will end up being saved despite what E! claims.

  • Rob

    Happy Endings!

  • Promoist

    Carrie Diaries

  • Mia


  • charmedcraft

    Beauty & The Beast, The Neighbors, Suburgatory

  • Taz

    Beauty and the Beast!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Herb Finn

    “The powers that be will get your message loud and clear.” – But do they care? Any show saved is done so by real world factors – raitings and adventsing revenue.

    Why year after year this myth fans can save shows continue?

  • Austin


  • Herb Finn

    …and syndication revenue!

  • Lisa

    Save The Carrie Diaries and Nikita.

  • Justin

    Community (Renewed for a 20 Episode Final Season)
    Guys With Kids
    Happy Endings
    Last Man Standing
    Malibu Country

    Everything Else

  • RockBoy602

    Hart of Dixie, Beauty & The Beast, Parenthood!
