Why do you keep posting links to these slideshows? If the information in them were exclusive to this particular media outlet, then I would understand. But it makes no sense to keep linking to these slideshows that contain no exclusive information when you can find the same information presented in a much more user-friendly format on dozens of other websites.

And since, as you stated, you've already posted this same info in other threads, why not just include this link as a post in one of the previous threads rather than creating a duplicate thread about the same topic?

:up: for Life in Pieces and Survivor. And The Big Bang Theory was recently renewed for two more seasons, so that should be part of that CBS list. Hopefully The Amazing Race will also get a renewal after the upcoming season has aired.

The thing I notice most about canceled TV shows is that about 99% of the time, the very first time I ever heard of the show is when I read about it being canceled. I keep thinking they may have needed more publicity :).
Man, Pitch got so much publicity leading up to its debut last fall. That was definitely not the reason why it failed.

I guess it depends on what shows you watch and if you watch the promos during the show - I don't think I heard of this show at all either. If I did, it was probably me reading a brief description on a "what's new this tv season" type of website article, and whatever I read didn't make me want to record it.
Obviously if you're not watching any FOX networks or FFing through commercials, then you were not likely to see any ads for it. Makes me wonder how effective the advertising on TV is vs. methods outside of TV, such as online, billboards, etc.

I'm just hoping NBC renews Timeless and Blindspot. I think those shows are pretty good for serialized network dramas.

Wow...I am a bit shocked that TAR is on that list... I don't keep up with the viewership numbers at all, but my perception was that it had a large following (not quite as large as my perception of the Survivor following, but still above the line to justify keeping it).
Many have predicted the current season would be its last because typically CBS orders a fall season and a spring season, but this year they only ordered one, and then when they originally scheduled it, it wasn't even going to start until May. It started a little earlier because another show tanked, but CBS hasn't shown much confidence in it, and the viewer numbers are less than half of what Survivor gets.

Some were hoping for a writers strike because that might increase the chances of shows like TAR being renewed, but with the strike averted, it's not looking good.

I'm not sure TAR pulls in quite the numbers that it used to. I know in our household, my wife still watches it (although not sure she's watched any of this season yet), but I've dumped it, and it used to be a favorite show. From what I can tell, I watched the first 25 seasons, but by the end I was really starting to get turned off by the casting, and with season 26 being one of the real stunt casting seasons (blind dates) AND the seflie cam season, well, that ended my run.
This season has been surprisingly good. They didn't cast any duos. Just a whole bunch of individuals and then they picked their partners in the first episode. So in addition to the regular stresses of the race, you've also got the stresses of being paired with someone you don't know. But I think one of the reasons it's working is since the racers don't know their partners, they are more social with the rest of the racers rather than being insular within just their team. So that has created a bit of a different dynamic. Anyway, I suggest you watch if you once enjoyed the show, but obviously it's up to you.

Can you give example(s) of what you mean, especially the "behind the scenes" part?

Maybe it's because I think baseball is the only one of the major sports where I know all of the (main) rules and the positions, but I can't think of anything complex about it/what was needed to be known beyond the basic rules. (I obviously know "get the ball in the hoop/goal/goal" for basketball/soccer/football, but beyond a couple of positions at most, I don't know all of the positions or the specific rules.)
I never saw the show, but I assume it dealt with a lot of the stuff that players go through outside of just playing, stuff like locker room politics, the constant fear of getting sent to the minors, the authority of the manager vs. the GM, travel, dealing with the press and fans, etc.

Oh definitely. :) I'd consider 5 seasons a good run... I didn't realize that they were rebroadcast on NBC, I thought they were only on DirecTV.
It wasn't just that NBC took the DirecTV episodes and rebroadcast them. It was part of the deal to fund the production of the last three seasons. It was a co-production of NBC and DirecTV, with DirecTV having the right to air the episodes first, but knowing that they'd air on NBC a couple months later.

I think you're thinking of Bones, which did announce in advance that this was its final season (as I like to put it, "a Fringe season" - 13 episodes or so where they know they're ending so they can write a proper series finale).
No, definitely not thinking of Bones. I guess I was just surprised Sleepy Hollow was even still on and figured they would have scheduled it to be canceled long before now.

Gotham and The Last Man On Earth renewed.

Depending on how many eps TLMOE gets, that may be a de facto two-season renewal, as 20th Century Fox probably wants to get it into syndication.
But it's only had 13 episodes each for its first two seasons, so it's not the normal where the end of a third season is 66+ and the end of a 4th season is 88+. At the end of the third season, they'll only be at 39 and only 52 after a fourth season, so that still may not be all that attractive for syndication.

Edit: Forget what I said above. It's in its third season and it's had 13, 18, 18 so far, so it's already at 49 and a fourth season of 18 would get it to 67.

But streaming deals seem to be much more important these days, and those don't really seem to care about the number of episodes because they don't have to worry about running the episodes too often if there aren't enough.

totally disagree
there is no way they could replace any of the younger cast
everybody would notice and every fan of the show would care

Lily had the best lines in the episode 2 weeks ago
and what helped make them so good was that she had older "sisters" to brag to
I agree that they couldn't replace them like those old shows were able to do. But what they could do is simply write reduced roles for the kids, like send Alex, Luke, and Manny to college, have Haley take a job that requires her to travel a lot, and then Lily and Joe are only in about every third episode anyway, so it would be pretty easy to manage if that's what they wanted to do.

I'm sorry that American Crime, with some of the best acting and thought-provoking stories on television, was cancelled. Let's put some naked bodies in a reality show on in its place.
:confused: What broadcast reality shows have naked bodies?
And The Real O'Neals? How dare a show try to show a Catholic family, a divorced mom and dad, and a gay teenager, in a comedic setting. Heaven forbid reality be exposed.
Do you really think that's why ABC canceled the show? If that were the reason, why would they pick it up in the first place. You should direct your ire at the producers for making a generally crappy show, and at the public for not watching it. Those are the reasons why it got canceled.
I just discovered a hilarious show called The Detour. It stars Jason Jones (and created with his wife, Samanta Bee).

I'm in episode 5 right now and it is crazy funny. Kind of like Chevy Chase's Vacation on steroids. I really hope it gets renewed (any word?)
Yes! I love The Detour. Season 2 was even better (although very different) than Season 1. Can't wait to see what they have in store for S3 next year. And how can you mention The Detour without mentioning the beautiful Natalie Zea?

You've misinterpreted me--I didn't say and am not saying that ABC cancelled it for those reasons (at least as far as I am aware). And no, in my opinion, it wasn't a "crappy show." It just didn't get ratings, just as American Crime didn't, at a time when we are overrun with "Real Wives of [insert any city name]."
Then why would you say
How dare a show try to show a Catholic family, a divorced mom and dad, and a gay teenager, in a comedic setting. Heaven forbid reality be exposed.
If you don't think those reasons had anything to do with the cancellation of the show, why bring them up?

I liked Last Man Standing and don't understand why it was cancelled. I would understand if it wasn;t getting viewers but it was ABC's second highest rated comedy. It averaged 8.1 million viewers compared to 8.7 million for Modern Family which got renewed for 2 seasons. It was also ABC's third highest rated scripted series.
It reminds me of when A&E cancelled Longmire. It was A&E's highest rated scripted show and they cancelled it. Never made sense to me.
LMS's last several episodes were barely getting 6 million viewers. Since ABC didn't own the show, and since it was getting pretty old (six seasons complete), it was likely going to be fairly expensive to renew it. If ABC were making a piece of the syndication, the calculation would probably have been different, but since they're not, they didn't see any benefit to renewing an expensive show when they could put in something new for probably half the price.
