UPDATE: Red Widow has been canceled after one season

ABC has canceled Body of Proof after three seasons.

  • Dan

    Well Red Widow wasnt surprising but I would have though ABC would keep Body of Proof in case a drama failed.

  • AO

    Castle is not spackle. Zero chance it’s not on the Fall schedule.

  • Matt

    So maaaaaaaddddd

  • SJ

    @Tom Shaw

    They still have Primetime: What Would You Do? and Primetime: Nightline…

  • Zth

    How To Live With Your Parents cancelled too!

  • Boiler

    How do you cancel Body of Proof when 8 million people watch it? Also Malibu Country had 7 million on Friday and its gone. I guess ABC couldn’t care less about the older viewers. Do these networks really think they have anything better?? Recent history suggest no

  • Mika02

    Why are people calling Castle Spackle have you not followed the ratings this season they are one top rated shows in a 10pm hour. Please respect Castle.

  • Anna Bones Clarkwood

    Does BOP end the series well? Does it flesh out the characters/storylines well?

    I was thinking of adding this to my To Watch List, but won’t unless the answer is yes to both.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Nobody wants to watch this like 80-year-old woman b**** at people for over an hour and god help us and sleep with dudes on it too!

  • AO


    They’re really not paying attention to the millions of viewers and they’re hoping that their new shows will do as well or better. We’ll see.

  • BigBrotherFan

    RED WIDOW!!!!!????? OMG I’M SHOCKED! I thought that was goanna be on for years to come

  • BigBrotherFan

    nbc just cancel that massive flop Hannibal already! you need to cancel all the high profile flops!

  • toons

    there was a big article in hollwood reporter about how BOP was a big money maker for the studio based on it’s overseas performance… i dont get why studios cant pickup a show just based on that now and then if it’s a money maker… i dont watch it but seemed like they really wanted a prodedural

  • gerry

    BOP is a surprising one. don’t watch it, but i figured it would come out unscathed as it has before. red widow is of course completely unsurprising.

  • JC

    I really liked BoP but I guess when it takes you 2 1/2 seasons to find your footing you dont have much future.

  • Fake Me Out

    I like BoP but with the way this season was turning out I can’t say I’ll miss it … Red went from annoying in S1&2 to WTFCrazy this year … I can stretch belief with the best of them but this season how this ME acted was well beyond the limit of believable/acceptable.

    It also didn’t help ABC aired episodes out of order early on making the story line a bit of a mishmash.

    RIP BoP :-(

  • Scott M

    I don’t get how BOP gets renewed last year and cancelled this year. Are the crop of pilots amazing or something?

  • Linda

    I am not surprised. Red Widow…they should have reconsidered their lead. She’s not that good.

    Body of Proof…this season I have noticed Dana Delany only has 2 facial expressions…aloof and annoyed. Besides both Luke Perry and Mark Valley, her possible love interests, are about 10 years younger than her and it showed.

  • Norcal1

    Not too sorry about this one. The leading lady was just too darn mean!

  • Tammy

    This show had gotten really good this season. I have watched every episode. I don’t understand ABC. You get any shows that the public like and will continuously watch and you cancel it. Body of proof was one of the best shows on this network and they kill it. Wake up and smell the coffee or hire someone that can.
