    Well, this sucks .... I've been a big fan of the show, though it wasn't as interesting in the later seasons.
    Jackson Publick confirms that The Venture Bros. has been canceled

    It won't be the same show without her. Does the title even still make sense in her absence? Christy's children had already been ghosted. So without Christy, the whole "mom" dynamic is gone.

    It”s Lorre and CBS, 2½ men remained the title when the kid grew up, and even remained the title when he left the show.

    Even more, it carried on with 2 of its 3 original leads gone, so if there's anyone that is familiar with one of the 2 leads leaving, it's Lorre and Co.

    Can't be any worse than the steaming pile that is The Walking Dead. Darryl is my favorite character so hope they don't fudge it up.

    They managed to wring a few more seasons out of it, but Two and a Half Men was never the same after Charlie left. They could've changed the name and gotten the same result.

    After producing another 30 episodes to air over the next 2 years. Plus, there's still the unaired season finale for season 10 (which won't be the season finale anymore because they added another 6 episodes to season 10).

    Hmm, i might give this one a look-see. I hung with TWD until S09 began and, IIRC, about the second episode in I had had enough of the same stuff over and over and over.

    I like Darryl, too, and also Carol. I have no idea what has happened throughout S09 and then S10, but I don't even care.

    Regarding Anna Faris’s departure from Mom, I have a sneaking suspicion that it was a combination of a reduced role for her character, and that the producers wanted to reduce her fee as well. I had not seen if she had a contract extension past Season 7. What is surprising is that it was only announced now. While they may not begin filming yet, the writers room has to have been up virtually for the past month or 2. So they are either having to retool or this has been in the works for a while.

    I can't really remember when I stopped watching, or why, but for what used to be a show I would watch effectively live it certainly fell way off my radar.

    I wonder, since the last season or two, how much viewership went down for TWD. I figured I was the only one, as I seem to have a new tendency to get bored with repetition and just couldn't watch another minute. But, since last year, I've really read a lot more people who quit this previously super popular show.

    Carol is my least favorite character (didn't used to be) and the scenes with just the two of them are unwatchable and FF'd.

    I have stuck with TWD as something when there's nothing else on but will not watch any other iteration, sequel, prequel or any other "quel" of it.

    Carol has been a couple of my favorite characters.

    And several of my least favorite.

    It's widely reported that this was the middle of a 2-year contract for her, she's leaving it 1 year early, or has been asked to leave.

    Stopped watching TWD a few seasons ago.
    Stopped liking Carol when she killed the kid.

    Same contract for Allison Janney. And it has been in the works for quite some time.
