Freshman drama Golden Boy has been canceled

    No offense to ABC, but they have the EASIEST decisions. The only tricky ones are The Neighbors and Malibu Country, Which I think both will be renewed.

  • JJ


    Networks will announce premiere dates for there new series at next weeks upfronts.

    Is ABC going to renew or cancel anything tonight?

    ABC stuff last year came in around 8PM EST on the Friday before Upfronts. So soon, hopefully!

    This may be a dumb question but when do the broadcast networks announce premiere dates for there series?

    They’ll announce timeslots next week, but the actual premiere dates won’t be announced until later in the summer.

    Other than POI, this was the only CBS show that I’ve watched in years. My biggest disappointment of the season.

  • Survivor Fan

    Last year, we knew every scripted show except for Rules and 2.5 Men by Friday night. We found out 2.5 Men on Saturday and Rules the week AFTER the upfronts.

    @ Amanda

    Didn’t they renew a bunch of shows on Tuesday or Wednesday night last year also?

  • Samunto

    Watched only a single episode because of Kevin A. It was still awful.

    No suprises with CBS anyway. Just formalities.

    Looks like Bill and Robert were spot on with their CBS predictions. Although, to be honest, CBS was the easiest of the bunch.

    ABC renewed Nashville

  • Sara Jean

    NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOO, Please please please do not cancel Golden Boy, bring it back. It is stinkn awesome!!!

    As for Golden Boy, I liked it but I knew it was gonna get the axe. Chi McBride is a really good and underrated actor.

    If Hannibal gets cancelled (which is likely) then all 3 of the rookies I liked this year will have gotten the axe. This was not a good year for rookie shows IMO.

    This was an excellent show, and the story was just beginning to expand into something really interesting. It wasn’t given enough time to find its audience.

    haha, i never realized greg berlanti was behind this, i might have watched.

    but i’m glad i didn’t, because its a goner.

    long live the good wife!

    I absolutely love this show. I am so disappointed. In a way, it was like a soap opera – couldn’t wait to see what happened leading up to his becoming the commissioner. Thought it was well done and very well acted. I’m ALL done with CBS. Cable only for me from now on!

    Really pi$$$$$ed about golden boy!!!!

  • Norcal1

    Again, sorry to see this one go.

  • Dan

    Well CBS has cleared its bubble deck

    Lets see the networks score cards

    1 Drama Renewed – Nashville
    1 Comedy Renewed – The Neighbors

    1 Drama Renewed – The Following
    1 Comedy Renewed – The Mindy Project

    1 Drama Renewed – Elementary

    2 Dramas Renewed – Revolution & Chicago Fire

    3 Dramas Renewed – Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, Carrie Diaries

    Well out of every network CW has renewed the most dramas 2, followed by NBC with 3, and FOX and ABC tie with 1. This may be the first season where CW has renewed the most new shows.

    Out of all the comedies only The Neighbors and The Mindy Project will return, thats kinda sad.

    This was a very good show. Miss the days when they gave shows a chance.
