    I convinced my wife the Passage was looking good for renewal so we binged it. Oops. Well, she'll forget it even exists within a few months anyway :)

    We are several episodes behind, so I guess we're going to pass. I really enjoyed the books.

    Well, that's good news for my rapidly filling TiVo. :) I'll wait for it to be official before deleting them though. I'm hovering around 87-88% right now.

    My hour long padded Sunday shows that I'm backed up on aren't helping (NCIS:LA and God Friended Me). I've only watched 2 NCIS:LA and the pilot of God Friended Me so far, and both of them are padded by an hour for overrun management.

    Also, The Kids Are Alright is cancelled.

    I didn’t watch but it seemed like it was doing okay for its time slot.

    I liked The Passage but am glad it’s cancelled because I thought it works best as a mini-series. The way they were setting up to stretch out the story would have ruined it for me.

    Oh no. :( I thought that show got better every week and would have liked to continue watching. Cool how the recent episode had another actor from TWD guesting.

    I'm a little bummed about 'The Cool Kids'. I know - it was silly, stupid, and ridiculous. But I thought it was a little fun and I loved how they would frequently have guests who were also well-known tv stars in that age group. It made it fun, IMO, as if it were just the 4 characters only I would have been bored by now. I'll miss it.

    I knew it was coming, but I'm bummed about Splitting Up Together. I really liked that show.

    Oh, I missed this notice. I really liked Speechless a lot, and I liked Splitting ok. Damn! Will there be any sitcoms left? :( Kripke just can't get a break.

    I liked both of those, but I won't really miss them. I think both shows ended with the assumption they weren't coming back so they had some closure to them

    No, no, no, dangit! Continuing the major broadcasters' modern-day tradition of cancelling the quality, real and yet different, and possibly even quirky (reflecting real aspects of America), in favor of reality shows, the same old detective/cop/hospital shows (I have news for you: "ER" and "Moonlighting" did it better, 25-30 years ago), and anything with "NCI" in it (with all due respect to "NCI").

    What do the networks have against light-hearted, quality shows featuring Catholic and other families who approach their religion and lives as the majority of families do, trying to get through their lives with all the variations that all of our families have? Shades of the cancellation of "The Real O'Neals" from a few years ago. I need to start my own network.

    Now I'm bummed. :(

    This one I am happy about, I loved watching it, Single Parents renewed as well as The Rookie.

    Also American Housewife, Fresh off the Boat, and Bless this Mess renewed.

    man I edited this post 4 times. ABC coming fast with renewals.

    I don't think the networks have anything against these types of shows. Just not enough eyeballs in the desired demographic. We enjoyed this one a lot. One of favorites this year.

    Sigh. I watch them (well, they're on in the background), but let's face it: somewhat standard and stale (heaven bless Katy Mixon, however), somewhat stale and stereotypical (although heaven bless Constance Wu and Randall Park), and "Green Acres" with attractive, younger leads.

    RIP "Speechless" (with thanks to Minnie Driver and John Ross Bowie--such hearts) and "The Kids Are Alright" (ditto to Mary McCormack--an acting treasure--and Michael Cudlitz).

    It's based on a series of novels. The first season was half of the first novel. For me, anyway, the second half of the novel was the better part...

    Maybe the networks need to be re-thinking how they count--does everything have to be "NCIS"? Can't there be space for other types--don't we all know moderately dysfunctional families but who still try, and families with other than Shannon Dougherty as the child? But, maybe, that's just cable. :(
