Networks Starting To Cancel Shows
The end of the TV season is coming up quick and the major networks are starting to reveal which shows won't be returning next fall. Has your favorite been cut?
As sweeps month rolls on, the networks are seeing what shows have got to go. So what won't be coming back for the 2015-2016 season?
State of Affairs with Katherine Heigl has already gotten the ax. A mid-season replacement show, it didn't last very long and I can't say I'm very surprised. Personally I'm not a Heigl fan, so I never really gave this one a chance. NBC isn't giving it one either.
The peacock network has also already chosen to cancel three of its comedies. One Big Happy, About A Boy and Marry Me are done and drama Constantine also won't be back next fall.
Some fans were shocked last week when the network revealed that Revenge was done, but it seems the show has run its course. Other much more short-lived shows getting the boot already are Forever, Cristela, Resurrection and their reality competition The Taste.
Everything else will see another season, though Tim Allen's Last Man Standing is still awaiting its fate.
I'm bummed to see Battle Creek already getting the boot. The freshman cop show was a new favorite of mine, but it will not be seeing a second season.
CBS has also dumped Stalker, The Millers and The McCarthys.
The Mindy Project's cancellation made waves among fans last week and is leaving lots of people praying Hulu picks the comedy up for more episodes.
Other shows Fox is done with are Rainn Wilson's new project Backstrom and the initially well watched The Following. Seems ratings have really dropped off during the second season of Kevin Bacon's show, so it's going to go.
On The CW:
Heart of Dixie is done after four seasons. Seems the cast saw the writing on the wall much earlier in the season, though The CW only recently made the officially announcement.
They have also given the ax to The Messengers. The show has only been on for a few weeks, so maybe they'll be a huge upswing in viewers that miraculously save it, but as of right now it doesn't look like the supernatural drama will be back in the fall.
Of course with all the cancellations, that means room for new shows this fall. The networks are probably finalizing fall lineups soon and will reveal their new offerings before too long.
