Television Thoughts: Canceled/Renewed

So here’s the news coming out of New York…..A lot of shows got cancelled and a lot of them did:

ABC

Canceled:

Astronaut Wives Club,  Blood & Oil, Castle, The Family, Galavant, Marvel’s Agent Carter, The Muppets, Nashville, Of Kings and Prophets, Rookie Blue, The Whispers,Wicked City

Renewed:
America’s Funniest Home Videos, American Crime, The Bachelor, Beyond the Tank,Black-ish, The Catch, Dancing With the Stars, Dr. Ken, Fresh Off the Boat, The Goldbergs, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder, Last Man Standing,Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Middle, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time,Quantico, The Real O’Neals, Scandal, Shark Tank

Thoughts:

Still very sad about Nashville.  Granted, I’m having a lot of issues with this storyline. What is the point of Cash? This whole Maddie thing is ridiculous and can we also touch on the fact that Frankie basically broke confidentiality. I mean, if Frankie is Deacon’s sponsor isn’t it unethical for Frankie to use all the stuff Deacon has told him as leverage to get Maddie emancipated? It seems so wrong and I’m sorry but give Layla and Will a break and also Scarlett and Gunnar are not Ross and Rachel. Just put them together and have that be the end of it. I’m hopeful that it might get picked up by another network. We can always hope.  I kinda had a feeling Castle might get cancelled. There was some rumbling behind the scenes and Stana Katic, who plays Castle’s other half, is leaving so wouldn’t that be like Mulder without Scully? It’s probably is best they cancel it.  I’m fine with them cancelling The Muppets because I do not understand why we continue to treat them like real people. I’m sure the puppets will be fine.

As for the renewed shows? Didn’t really surprise me and if you aren’t watching The Middle, you really should be. Black-ish is awesome and so is Fresh off the Boat. Constance Wu is the best part of that show.  Not shocked by The Bachelor returning or Modern Family but this past season was not my favorite. It seems like Modern Family is in some sort of slump that I hope it gets out of. Quickly. It feels like they don’t know what to do with Luke and maybe they should rip a page out of The Middle’s playbook and concentrate more on the kids growing up. Also, it’s time to stop with the Alex is too smart and therefore can’t date a hot guy thing. It’s getting old and not funny. I’m also starting to have some issues with Scandal. It’s going in an insane direction. Olivia beating someone to death with a chair just seemed so out of character.

CBS

Canceled:
Angel From Hell, CSI: Cyber, Extant, Limitless (though CBS is trying to shop it to another network), Rush Hour, Under the Dome

Renewed:
2 Broke Girls, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, The Big Bang Theory, Blue Bloods, Code Black, Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Elementary,Hawaii Five-0, Life in Pieces, Madam Secretary, Mom, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, The Odd Couple, Scorpion, Survivor, Undercover Boss.

Thoughts:

Did not watch any of the cancelled shows so I’m not sad. I still do not understand how 2 Broke Girls is still on the air. I have tried so many times to sit through it and yet I can’t. Big Bang Theory will be around for the rest of our lives so there’s that. Mom is amazingly good and if you haven’t watched it, I recommend it. They do such an amazing job walking that line between drama and comedy. It’s moving and sweet and touching and really funny. The Odd Couple got renewed and I’m still on the fence about this show. I will always be a fan of Matthew Perry and the supporting cast it great but hopefully next season, the writing will improve. Matthew Perry did say it was better this season than last season and I do agree with that.

NBC

Canceled:
Best Time Ever, Crowded, Game of Silence, Heartbeat, Mr. Robinson, The Mysteries of Laura, The Player, Telenovela, Truth Be Told, Undateable

Renewed:
The Blacklist, Blindspot, The Carmichael Show, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago P.D., Grimm, Hollywood Game Night, Law & Order: SVU, Little Big Shots, Shades of Blue, Superstore, The Voice

Thoughts: None. I didn’t watch anything that was cancelled and still love Hollywood Game Night and Law and Order SVU. I’ll still watch The Voice even though I watch for the judges. Still rooting for NBC to return to what it once was.

Fox

Canceled:
Boom!, Bordertown, The Cleveland Show, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life,Grandfathered, The Grinder, Knock Knock Live, Minority Report, Golan the Insatiable,Second Chance

Renewed:
Bob’s Burgers, Bones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Empire, Family Guy, Gotham, Hell’s Kitchen, The Last Man on Earth, Lucifer, MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, New Girl,Rosewood, Scream Queens, The Simpsons, Sleepy Hollow

Thoughts:

I wish Grandfathered and Grinder had been given another season. They were cute and actually probably could have gotten better. Were they the most realistic shows? No, not really but they still had potential. There were funny moments.  Of course. love that Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Empire and New Girl are all back and all three have had pretty awesome seasons.

CW

Canceled:
America’s Next Top Model, Containment, Significant Mother

Renewed:
The 100, Arrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, iZombie,Jane the Virgin, The Originals, Reign, Supergirl (moving from CBS), Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries

Thoughts:

Wasn’t even aware America’s Next Top Model was still on the air so there’s that. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin are back and I love both shows because neither one take themselves all that seriously and that’s why they’re enjoyable. I’m a little sad about Containment being cancelled because someone whom I went to high school with was on it and I always thought she was pretty cool, so it is sad.
