    That does correspond with rumors of "Idol" moving to Wed/Thurs and the fact that Fox is overburdened with hour longs...

    But I'll wait til I find some news or someone reporting direct knowledge.

    Someone in Usenet has reported that Threshold, Reunion, and Hot Properties have all been axed.

    'Threshold,' 'Reunion' canceled
    ABC gets rid of 'Hot Properties' as well

    Tuesday, November 29, 2005; Posted: 8:30 a.m. EST (13:30 GMT)

    LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- It's the end of the road for three freshman series: ABC's "Hot Properties," CBS' "Threshold" and Fox's "Reunion."

    Sources said ABC has opted not to pick up additional episodes of the Gail O'Grady comedy "Hot Properties," which has completed its original 13-episode order and will stay on the air through December. The Friday entry revolves around four men-obsessed women in a Manhattan real estate office.

    After a sluggish start in its original Friday 9 p.m. slot and equally soft results from the trial move of "Threshold" to the Tuesday 10 p.m. slot last week, the alien-invasion drama will be taken off the schedule for the last Tuesday of the November sweep this week, replaced by a repeat of CBS' promising new crime drama "Criminal Minds." "Threshold," from "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman, starred Carla Gugino.

    The drama "Reunion," about six friends caught up in a murder mystery, has struggled in the killer Thursday 9 p.m. slot (opposite CBS' "CSI"), dropping significantly from its "The O.C." lead-in.

    ABC, CBS and Fox declined comment on the cancellations Monday.

    Hrmmm, no comment from Fox on whether or not they'll air the remaining episodes of Reunion. That's a shame, because I was just starting to get into it after the last few episodes.

    I think it suffered from a typical TV problem. A smart concept and some unique ideas with poor followthrough. A shame. :(

    Damn it!!! Reunion was just getting good and it was a good concept. It just makes you wonder what they really expected it to do against CSI. Couldn't they just move that into the slot that AD/Kitchen Confidential are vacating?

    Thats it. I am done with FOX. The can kiss my butt. I thought Reunion was getting better. Man, this really bites!!

    Now the only two shows I watch on FOX are House and Killer Instinct, and I am so mad right now that I may give up both of them.

    BURN FOX

    Huh?

    CBS made it a full season order on November 4. It hasn't been yanked.

    I think "yanked" would be the wrong term to use. The terms "yanked" and "cancelled" pretty much mean the same.

    It would be better to say that it has been removed from the schedule but will return later. This was apparently planned all along so they could introduce some new shows, "yanked" implies that it was a last minute thing.

    So Prison Break has been yanked, then, too? :)

    I agree... "yanked" isn't a good term for these cases; they're just more on a temporary, scheduled hiatus so they can show something else in the meantime. They're not in danger of not coming back.

    Cancelled means you're not going to see it again, but yanked means it has been pulled off the schedule during times that it was planned to air. All the shows that are listed in "Yanked" have been pulled off the air for some amount of time, but have been announced that they will return with new episodes. "Cancelled" is completely done.

    It could be called "Hiatus" or something, but I was mostly following tradition. And I would argue that "Out of Practice" wasn't planned to be off for all of Jan-March until they decided that they needed more room because show were doing so well. Mid-season replacements are supposed to replace, but it looks like all their shows did better than they thought.

    Plus you have to realize that its all PR. If this Jenna Elfman show comes on and does twice the numbers of "Out of Practice", and they don't have another show they want to pull off the air, you might not see "Out of Practice" again. They are in danger of not coming back. Yanked.

    "Prison Break" is a difficult one because its an almost unheard off situation. Fox has a hugely popular show, but they have to pull it to make room for two even more hugely popular shows. They are on hiatus. I guess this could apply to "Out of Practice" as well, but these shows wouldn't be on hiatus if the networks had more room to air. But then if you believe PR, "Living With Fran" and "Blue Collar Comedy" are on hiatus too. But those were pulled for ratings.

    But we still need a place to list all of these things. So here's what I'll do. I'll change that category to on hiatus, because that's what they all are. And for the ones that it looks like a bad hiatus, I'll just make sure that they are also in "Chopping Block" but shows like "Prison Break" and "Out of Practice" will only be in hiatus.

    Does that sound agreeable to everyone? It seems like we're forging new ground here, because I can't think of the last time that the network have had to pull a popular show midseason to make room for other shows, but there is no doubt that they will be on again. Strange times, my friends.

    We've also never touched on how we account for summer series that exist between seasons... Or what about "Night Stalker" being yanked, but premiering a couple of new episodes on iTunes. What if "Arrested Development" moves to only iTunes or to a cable network? Complex.

    It's all the changing face of television.

    "Yanked" or "Cancelled"? by your own definition of the two you should have said cancelled and not yanked... Proving my point that yanked and cancelled are the same....

    Also want to point out that the URL you posted showing Killer Instinct showing it's final episode in December also says Reunion will be back on in February. Using your definition would this not mean Reinion was "yanked" and not "cancelled" as you report?

    Also that post says "last airing" for Killer Instinct. Says nothing about the show being cancelled. Could just be it's "last airing" for this season as it was never meant to be a full season show...

    I already changed the listing to "On Hiatus" because everyone is right that I agree that "yanked" denotes negative. "Yanked" doesn't apply to "Out of Practice" and "Prison Break". Those shows are coming back in few months time and have no foreseen end.

    I said "Night Stalker" was yanked, because even though it was pulled off the air immediately, iTunes started "airing" new ones. I acknowledged that its a weird sitatuation that has never existed before. If they were in theory to produce "Night Stalker" exclusively for iTunes (farfetched, I know) would it be "Yanked", "Cancelled", "On Hiatus", or what... "Moved to the Internet"?

    That futon link is not great, but he said on the link leading there that the announcement meant it was cancelled. "Reunion" and "Killer Instinct" are done. No more episodes will be produced to fill out a full season. There is no chance of season three. But Fox will be airing final episodes of both. So where does it go? Yanked? Cancelled? I put things into cancelled when its said that they are done and not coming back and neither "Reunion" nor "Killer Instinct" are both reported as finished, despite any final wrap up episodes.

    If someone has suggestions about how to better list a show like "Reunion" that is announced as cancelled in November, but won't air the final wrap up episode until February, please let me know.
