    How about in the "Retiring" section? It's a show that will not be back after it finishes this season, in February.


    Please don't think I'm trying to argue or saying you're not doing a good job of this, you are. My point is that some of the terms being used don't fit the purpose they are being used for. You call one show "yanked" and another "cancelled" yet they both share the same fate. It gets confusing...

    I agree. That's why if you look at the top, I've done away with the "yanked" section. "Retiring" doesn't apply, in my opinion, to a show that was supposed to have at least a 20 episode slow reveal (with one for each year and all) but then gets the rug yanked out and it forced to wrap up in twelve. That's outright cancelled to me.

    "Will and Grace" is retiring, because they are choosing to end. The better question to me is what do you do with a show like "Alias" or even "Seventh Heaven" that are told midseason that there will be no more? Are those retiring? Or are they cancelled? Futon Critic has them as cancelled, which makes sense, it wasn't their choice, but each could be airing as many as 13 more episodes this season, versus the 3 or so that "Reunion" may make. I'm just leaning more to retired because they are long running shows that are wrapping up, and "Apprentice" will have wrapped up a full season, whereas "Night Stalker", "Threshold", "Reunion", and "Killer Instinct" all have had less than 12 episodes and will be extremely truncated in story regardless of how many more episodes are allowed for a wrap up.

    It's not perfect, but its interesting to me to discuss it with you guys, as it seems some of these questions have no simple answers.

    I'm so sad about "Three Wishes." It was one of the only uplifting shows out there. =(

    Didn't realize there was a minimum show requirement for "Retiring" since the definition is listed as "Shows that are finishing at the end of the season and won't be back".

    Maybe one word categories aren't the best way to describe them. lol

    apparently it's all one person's opinion anyways. oh well, plenty of other threads to read here anyways. I'll stick to other sources to find out if a show is cancelled or put on the back burner from now on.

    The release also says "season finale" for Reunion as opposed to "series finale." Maybe they'd rather not call attention to the fact that they're cancelling it so people will watch.

    This is for the Olympics, not because they are being cancelled, or yanked, or whatever term you want to use.

    They are coming back after the Olympics, however NBC is choosing to air other programming (not the olympics) instead of these shows. Never a good sign. Notice that Will and Grace will remain airing on Thursday while these are going away "for the Olympics."

    But that is why they are "On Hiatus" and they were not added to cancelled and Runner, we did away with the yanked term exactly because of this.

    Reunion is on the chopping block .. i say let the show run it's season !!!!!!!!!!! boo FOX ! .. i'm glad they are taking apprentice and joey out, at least temp. the nerve of nbc to leave cra.. ergh .. i mean subpar shows like "joey" and the yesterday's news "apprentice" on the air while canceling superb writing and acting in American Dreams ... i for one am glad nbc got #4 in nov sweeps.


    also like to commento n Alias that it has been confirmed that this is the final season and as sad as i am to see it go, after the premiere, i would like to see it at least end in a dignified manner.. but hey .. why not do an ALias movie? hehe

    Totally agree. Just wondering - is it going to be normally two new episodes every week? This show still is not in HD, correct?

    Ya know, i've been reading all season and there are at least half of you that just complain about how things are posted, etc.
    Will you leave Vito alone, he's doing a good job keeping up to date on things.
    Nobody ever complained before when there was the same format and just a different editor.
    If you don't like it, leave, we never want to see you again. I'm tired of you ragging on this thread. GO FIND A NEW ONE YOU CAN COMPLAIN ABOUT!
    Thanks Vito for your hard work and i admire your patients with these people. I would've told them to get lost a long time ago.

    Hehe, well, I think some of the comments have been made out of an honest desire to make the thread better, but I do agree that some of them have been overly cranky and pointless.
    But I agree with you for the most part. Regardless of how any of us feel about Vito's terminology and semantics he makes it clear in his posts what he's heard about each show and how concrete he feels the information is. That's plenty good enough for me, and I appreciate Vito doing this every bit as much as I appreciated it when MiraclMax did it.
    I'd much rather have someone willing to do all the work of compiling this information and using terminology I disagree with than having to do all the work myself! :D

    Thank you yank, and I'll second what Crrink is saying and that I absolutely do NOT mind someone suggesting that I change the way we are reporting something. I would prefer it if I got them over PM as this thread seems long with non-show related information.

    But that being said, I stand by the things we report and the way we report them. Crrink is right that all the information is there. But people seem to have an interest in me not reporting the information that actually exist. For instance, simply for example, the show "Reunion" is cancelled. They are finishing however many episodes are left in their front 12 of the season order which would have carried them through 1998. The show will not be back next season, there will not be more episodes shot this season, and there are no "unaired" episodes that can be in a marathon on FX. Its not on hiatus, its not retiring, its not "finishing its run", its not a limited one-season series and despite what FOX pr says, the February episode is the last episode ever. The show didn't get the ratings that they wanted so they stopped production. It happens all the time in TV, happens to shows that people love, and they fight to attempt to revive the show, move it to other networks or have it made into a movie (with varying degrees of success ;)), but I swear this is the only season where I have seen people arguing on the forums over whether information is legitimate or whether we're allowed to call a show cancelled or yanked. And then those people use the PR as proof. "Reunion" says season finale, "Joey" and "Out of Practice" are back in March - PR only counts for that second. They take away episodes after they are announced and they change plans all the time. "Reunion" is not a season finale. If NBC's new Thursday night does excellent, you won't see Joey back.

    Please by all means come here for the info, but please stop arguing in this thread over what the info means and whether it is legit.
