Ever since the beginning of May news of some shows that were being renewed and canceled were circulating the web but we can now bring you the important details of what was renewed and what shows weren’t.
FOX have announced the renewals of the following shows: “Bones” (7th Season), and “House” (8th Season). Those shows joined the ranks of the already renewed other shows: “American Dad” (8th Season), “Bob’s Burgers” (2nd Season), “The Cleveland Show” (3rd Season), “Family Guy” (10th Season), “Fringe” (4th Season), “Glee” (3rd Season), “Raising Hope” (2nd Season), and “The Simpsons” (23rd Season).
However, most of the new shows and existing ones did not make the cut and were sent out on the chopping block, those shows include: “Breaking In”, “The Chicago Code”, “Human Target”, “Lie to Me”, “Traffic Light”, “Running Wilde”, and “Lone Star”..
The verdict is still out on “American Idol” however it is mostly likely going to be renewed.
With 7 shows out of the running it made room for some new pilots that will be premiering in the Fall Line-up, a look at those shows will be taken before the season starts in hopes that they do not canceled beforehand.
May is creeping closer to us, and it’s officially that time of the year where networks proceed to cancel some of their lowest performing shows. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that HBO has decided to pull the plug and cancel their show “In Treatment”.
“In Treatment” follows Dr. Paul Weston’s therapy sessions and his clients in contrast with his sessions between him and his own therapist (kind of like a therapy within a therapy). It is currently in its 3rd season and officially its last. The series was a success in the previous years in which it won some awards, however viewership for Season 3 has heavily fallen to its lowest point drawing in only 259,000 viewers. HBO is however keeping the door open for future projects of the show which means we might be able to see spin-off’s or a similar show in the near future.
It comes as no surprise to most that FOX has pulled the remaining 5 episodes of “Running Wilde” from its schedule as it hasn’t been doing well in the ratings. It also isn’t a surprise that the show has been cancelled regardless of the “Arrested Development” affiliation of most of the actors there.
The Will Arnett/Keri Russell comedy has been poorly reviewed and experienced very bad ratings ever since it’s launch and personally I’ve watched the show and can honestly define the comedy there as mediocre and find that it is a fluff show not one that would last. Therefore FOX pulled the series for good. According to Entertainment Weekly, the final five episodes including the one-hour finale will not air anytime soon but might air eventually, a date has not been given at all for the last five episodes.
A shocking announcement came from the TNT press yard in which they have decided not to renew its undercover cocp drama “Dark Blue” for a third season, instead making the second season it’s last on air.
Although it stars Dylan McDermott and is executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, it has struggled with ratings and reviews in which the second season managed only to rake in an average of 2.25 million viewers, making it one of the least watched TNT shows this summer. Other shows airing during the summer scored better in the ratings and therefore this decision was made to drop “Dark Blue” along with the other shows cancelled this year.
“Dark Blue” joins other shows like “Lone Star”, “The Whole Truth”, “My Generation”, “Outlaw”, and “Undercovers” in the cancellation yard.
This is a sad news day, NBC has canceled “Undercovers.”
The J.J. Abrams series will air its final three episode within the coming weeks but will not get any more episode orders. The series, starring Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, came onto the screen with so much hype behind it that when it failed to impress the critics and didn’t bring in the ratings NBC decided to cancel it. The series follows the lives of a married couple who were in fact spies once upon a time and reactivates them for missions.
In my opinion it was an awesome series, it needed some time to find its footing but NBC wasn’t giving it to them therefore after the next 3 episodes we will bid this series good night and good bye.
“Undercovers” now joins “Outlaw”, “The Whole Truth”, “My Generation” and “Lone Star” in the 2010-2011 TV show graveyard.
NBC Cancels new show “OutLaw”! Poor cast
ABC followed Fox’s swift cancellation of their low-rated show “Lone Star” by canceling or rather giving it the axe after airing just two episodes. The show failed to bring in any viewers or ratings on its first two Thursday night airings and therefore it couldn’t make it.
In my opinion, Thursday night is a tough night for most TV Shows we’ve got all the big names airing at that time whether it’s Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, The Vampire Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, Community, 30 Rock, or any of the new shows it’s just a hard slot to compete it in and the show just didn’t have it in them.
I tried to watch the first episode but couldn’t get through the documentary-style show that followed a fictional group of nine friends who went to high school in Austin, Texas 10 years ago, re-visiting them and seeing just how their lives and relationships have developed.
It couldn’t keep me interested and I tried to give it its chance now I’m just happy I don’t have to watch it anymore and my list is down by a few.
It’s official, Fox just canceled “Lone Star”.
The network that brought you “Til Death” for 4 seasons when no one was watching it just canceled “Lone Star” and announced that “Lie to Me” will take over the show’s former time slot as of next Monday.
I don’t think they gave it a chance to turn its way around by canceling it after just 2 episodes airing but then again a show about a man leading 2 lives with 2 different wives and being a con artist didn’t rub off that well on many.
The show could have had potential but unfortunately now we will never see that.
For me, it’s good news now my Mondays have 1 less show to follow and watch.
