Even network executives will occasionally publicly admit that shows have been cancelled, as the Futon Critic reports Fox’s entertainment chief Kevin Reilly admitted about both Running Wilde and The Good Guys.

“They’ve been sent out to the netherworld. We never announced their cancellation but they will not be back.”
