    Oh darn! No more Allen Gregory? :D

    Nothing I watch got the ax - yet. (yay) Still wondering what's happening with Rules of Engagement. I know I'm probably about the only one, but I like this show. Hope it doesn't get the ax. Last week it was in the top 25 on the EW weekly episode list.

    Nothing too surprising here. I do wish Awake would still be around, but most the rest of the list I am fine with.

    I think they'll keep it around.

    CBS needs something to fill the slot when their 2 yet to be announced 1/2 hour comedies are cancelled after 3-4 episodes.

    I was surprised that Supernatural was renewed. I thought they (producers? actors?) were ready to be done with that show.

    Not that I'm complaining. :)

    This has been a bad TV year for me. All of my favorite new shows (Ringer, GCB, The Finder) have been cancelled while the ones I wouldn't mind being rid of (Person of Interest, Grimm, Once Upon a Time) were renewed. Smash is the only bright spot for me.

    Nothing on American Dad for Fox? Though I guess it'll follow with Family Guy and the Cleveland Show.

    I'm still surprised CBS holds onto Undercover Boss - it's got the feel for a cable channel, not network TV. Especially considering the strength of CBS' lineup...

    They could shut down the ABC network entirely and I'd never know it. There literally is not one single show on ABC that I watch. I swear ABC heavily skews their programming towards women viewers.

    Looks like I've got some work to do with my season pass list. The River, Terra Nova, Alcatraz, The Firm and Ringer all got 86'd.

    It's surprising how few shows I watch on ABC, NBC and CBS.

    Biggest surprise for me so far: Whitney's renewal (yay, 'cause I like this show). :)

    Only real disappointment: Awake. I like this show, but the ratings made it clear I was part of a much too exclusive group.:(

    That used to be true for me too, especially after LOST wrapped up, but the last year or two, ABC has added some shows I like: Suburgatory, Happy Endings, B-- in Apt 23. Body of Proof is ok, wouldn't have cried if it died, but will keep watching for now since it's renewed. That's a show that needs to up its game next season, or it will become one of my rare "shows I dropped after watching for a while". And of course, Modern Family is a keeper. Not as sharp as it used to be, but still very very good. Oh, almost forgot, Once Upon a Time, good show.

    I was surprised about the renewal of Body of Proof. I watch it but it has mixed quality of episodes. I was disappointed about Secret Circle (not surprised though) hope it comes to a conclusion.

    No pickup for The Smart One on ABC yet? This is the only show I am looking forward to so far, mainly because of Portia De Rossi.

    Agree on ABC. When Lost wast on it was the only show we watched on the network. Now it's Modern Family.

    CBS gets the majority of our network tv time.

    Suburgatory is the only ABC show I watch once Desperate Housewives concludes tonight. So glad it got picked up. It's a very funny show.

    I'm going to miss only two shows that were cancelled: "A Gifted Man" and "The Finder."

    Patrick Wilson, star of "A Gifted Man," said "I couldn't be happier" about the cancelation. Apparently it wasn't what he signed on for. So in real life he's just as much a ***** as his character on the show was? Jennifer Ehle deserves better. Get her a new show!
