TV Shows Being Canceled

Wed May 15, 2013 9:25 pm

This is the week that the major networks anounce their new fall schedules. This is also the time that shows get the axe.

So what's being canceled?

Looks like FOX has canned The Cleveland Show

ABC has canned

Malibu Country
Happy Endings
Body Of Proof

Malibu Country, I don't get

Per wikipedia
Ratings [edit]

The series premiere received 9.13 million viewers, and a 2.3 in the coveted 18–49 rating share, up 1 million viewers from its lead in, the season premiere of Last Man Standing. The premiere scored ABC's highest numbers in the half hour in almost 5 years.[10] As of November 27, 2012, the first season episode order has been expanded from 13 to 18, with ABC also announcing that Malibu Country is the highest-rated freshman comedy on television in the 2012 fall season with an average of 8.7 million viewers per episode.[44]



Yet, ABC renewed The Neighbors Go figure.   


I don't know what NBC, CBS, or CW are doing.

NBC cancelled The New Normal.

Sometimes rather meh, but it had funny sides to it and its plot involving a gay couple and dealing with everyday life was a rather touching story.

The Cleveland Show has been subject to a lot of rumors about cancellation but as Wikipedia says, no new orders for episodes has been ordered. Any other hiatus than an inter seasonal spells doom. Collider.con says basically cancelled though nothing yet on TVHell.com as on now. As a fan of Family Guy I hope to see Cleveland return to Quahog.

Never seen it, and while those ratings surprise me, reading the synopsis is enough to justify the cancellation!

I'm hoping he returns to Family Guy too - Family Guy has been kind of empty without him. I miss the bathtub falling from the house scenes. Hopefully a few characters will carry over to Family Guy also. It was funny in the Family Guy episodes Cleveland Jr was only seen 2-3 times and he looked totally different and skinny - all of a sudden in Cleveland show he becomes a nerdy lardball

I liked Happy Endings. I think it had an original (compared to what´s out there) sense of humor. I also did like Body of Proof, although this season is kinda lame compared to the first one.

It feels like the right time for this. I've watched from day one, and I didn't want to sit through three more rounds of Michael getting to the Big Bad Guy behind his Burn Notice, only to find that there was yet another Bigger Bad Guy behind that one. Hopefully they wrap that up, and spend a little time on the gang working on the case of the week.

One of my favorite shows ever, but the writing has suffered this season (and maybe even some the prior season as well). And they wrote themselves into a corner with the last scene, I don't see how they could have come back from that.

Yeah I like Burn Notice but it's really repetitive now.

I'm not watching any of the other mentioned, I'm more of a SF/fantasy fan, and those series, especially the SF ones, get early deaths way too often, only due to US people not watching them, even when they make tons of money internationally, that's really annoying.

The whole point was for that to be a huge cliffhanger... An interview with the show's writers seemed to point to his possible return, but now that Southland's been shot down we'll never know.

It's had a good run—I wondered how much longer it would last after his brother was killed. Apparently Fiona takes on a new boyfriend this season, leaving Michael scrambling to save what remains of his friends and family, if I'm getting what the season previews are showing correctly.

On one of the re-runs USA ran this morning, Michael gave Fiona a snowglobe as a friendship symbol at the end of one of the episodes. You can't make this stuff up.

I understand the symbolism of snowglobes here on A.net, however, in the show, Fiona had an extensive collection of them. During one of their ops, I think as part of an escape from one set of villans or another, her house was blown up, destroying the collection. Michael got her one as a way of apologizing for what he was putting her through.

Finally, the network once known as the Tiffany Network cancelled Rules of Engagement. Also another CSI bites the dust. CSI New York is now a has been. Rookie show Vegas also got the ax. The one starring Dennis Quaid and the bald dude that was the commish back in the 80's got canned. That wasn't a bad show. And one of my favorites 666 Park Avenue never made it past the holiday season. That one was in the lemmon Sunday night 2200 time slot that last season hosted the failed Pan AM

They explained what happened to the original Cleveland Jr in a fairly recent episode. If it is cancelled, I too would like to see him return to Quahog.

So many great and not great shows get imported over here. A lot of great shows get canned and its disappointing.


Shows that should get or have gotten another season.

Southland
Vegas
Terra Nova
Alcatraz
Studio 60 on the sunset strip (loved that show, excellently written)
Dirty Sexy Money
V
Caprica
Stand off
The unit
The Chicago code



Tv shows that should be axed NOW!

Grimm
Glee
Bones
Two and a half men


Tv shows that never ever should of made it to the screen
Mike and Molly
Jersey Shore



It's difficult to start enjoying a new series, knowing its less than 12 months away from getting canned.

Comedy Central has canceled Futurama after the 7 season.    I love this show. IMHO it is better than the Simpsons.

Another summer show that was canceled was The Great Escape on TNT last October. Loved it, looks like it is being replaced with The Hero hosted by The Rock.

I'll never understand why some shows get cancelled and other continue to waste air time.

Sci-Fi is particularly bad at it. They seem to cancel series' in their prime for no particular reason.
It is like the board is made up entirely of kindergarten kids, as soon as they get bored with something, they cancel it and move on.

I've made an effort not to get too much into any given series these days. I'm afraid that with the story arcs that are used in today's shows, a season end cliffhanger may never be resolved if the studio decides to can the show. This happens all too regularly and pisses me the hell off.

If series' were to revert back to the reset mode for each episode, I'd be more inclined to watch, as a show getting canned wouldn't leave an arc half finished.

I think American TV is too crowded with medical, police and fire dramas. It, for the most part, always has been. With the exception of NCIS I don't watch any other police drama, no fire shows, and the wife makes me occasionally watch Greys Anatomy with her. So, it doesn't come as a surprise that when they spin off several other PD dramas, they fail. Although, NCIS is a spinoff to JAG and it has done very, very well.

Yeah, I agree. I liked it as a kid...in high school...when it just started going downhill. To me, they left their roots and made it too celebrity-centric. When they started having celebrity guests in every episode, I feel like the humor was traded out for more celebrity visits. Just my opinion.

Let me amend your description: TV Shows whose cast and crew should be executed, and everyone who ever watched more than 1 episode should be sterilized.

Mike & Molly is mindless entertainment that I enjoy after a crappy, long Monday. My apologies that I am not worthy of having a child.

I liked 'Pan Am'. It's a pity it was cancelled IMO

Hope that trashy show Two Broke Girls goes, never seen anything so crass, it was aired for a month or so on a cable channel catering to India which our cable operator also provides here, but even the Indians dropped the show, normally they bring in new seasons every few months but they didn't for this and another one called New Girl which shows a first generation US-Indian girl a model, sleeping around, getting pregnant out of wedlock.

New Girl is a great show! FYI, the Indian girl is not the main character of the show, and she didn't get pregnant so far. Also, we're living in the 21st century

Maybe it did not gel with many Indians, they used to run a ticker underneath asking viewers to report anything they found offensive to a concerned authority, they didn't this for all foreign channels, besides I stopped seeing the show and that time she was pregnant, hated the dumb main character and the fact a good looking mddle aged millionaire fell for her a la Pretty Woman 1990 was stupid IMO.

It may be 21st century but some people outside of your world do not accept such things more so people of their countries being used showing this, hope no Indian pops in to negate this and pass off his still conservative society as a hotbed of everything hip.
