    Here's the latest slide show listing the status of your favorite shows. It's a very long slide show, but if you've seen the previous ones I've posted only the first dozen or so slides are new since my last posting.

    Thanks!

    I didn't know that 'Maron' was gone after this season. That said, however, this current season is just really messed up.

    Cracks me up that they killed 'Grandfathered' and especially 'The Grinder', YET 'Dr Ken' is renewed. WTH??

    I suspect racial diversity was at the core here. Assuming they all had similar ratings they probably chose to keep the one with the mostly Asian cast just so they could have a bit of racial diversity on the network.

    Different networks. Dr. Ken was modestly successful for ABC on Fridays. The other 2 were Tuesdays on FOX and bombed pretty hard.

    It's a shame. I would have continued watching both but if I had to choose only one of them to stay, I would have definitely chosen 'The Grinder'.

    If it's about 'Asian-based' shows, I think 'Fresh off the Boat' is a really good sitcom. However, I don't remember which network it is on (good thing Tivo knows!). :)

    I think the main reason a show gets canceled has to do with the nights they air. If a network feels they have a strong show they'll air it on a night where the other networks have their best shows in an attempt to attract viewers away from the competition. If the ratings tank then the show gets pulled. Chances are, if they simply switched it to another night it would probably do extremely well and beat out the other networks. Sunday thru Tuesday seem the be the big nights for TV viewing these days. Wednesday thru Saturday aren't as strong as they used to be. Friday is pretty much a wasteland and none of the networks will even touch Saturday prime time.
