Ausiellobubbleshows_l
Go ahead and bookmark this page now, because over the next few weeks, as the networks begin finalizing their fall schedules (starting with NBC on Monday), you’re going to want to come back often as I update this list of the shows that are likeliest — and unlikeliest — to be renewed. (If you can’t wait for the page to refresh, you can stalk me on Twitter.) Oh, and don’t bother looking on this chart for, like, Dateline or any show with the name Howie in its title; I left off the ones that bore us.

    Just a quick note–“In the Motherhood” and “Surviving Suburbia” are both on ABC, not CBS.
    Thanks for the list!

  • Hannah

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love you for doing this! Thank god Ugly Betty is already renewed! Now Samantha Who and Privileged need to be renewed for me to be a happy camper! :)

  • Chmarin

    In the Motherhood airs (or should I say aired) on ABC, not CBS ;)

  • Trey

    “In The Motherhood” and “Surviving Suburbia” are ABC shows, Mike, not CBS. (Not that anyone cares about them.)

  • Jenn

    I loooovee kitchen nightmares!! I am so glad it is renewed. So many good shows seem to be cancelled though??

  • T.T

    CHUCK better get renewed!!!
    and privliaged renewal would be great

  • wherrick

    Life a longshot????

    • AN

      Thought this was a great show. They didn’t really need the subplot but thought everything was working

    • Colleen

      The network is making a terrible mistake cancelling Life – One of the few programs on with any redeeming value. What will it take to get this show back on the air – CALLING ALL NETWORKS – Take Jay Leno off the air and put this show on – Some of would give up football!!!!

      • Carrie

        I agree someone needs to pick this show up… AMAZING show would rather watch this then jay leno!!!

    • joe

      yeah no kidding at least the last episode was good

  • eitak

    RIP reaper…no idea what they were thinking putting it up against Idol

  • kathleenem

    pleasepleaseplease let Chuck get renewed!

  • mooshki

    Did the guy who hates HIMYM get fired? It’s strange (yet great) to see it not at risk.
    I’m really bummed about The Unusuals and Life, but I’ll survive as long as Chuck sticks around.
    I still can’t believe 90210 got renewed. It just keeps getting worse and worse. (I may have to stop drinking Dr. Pepper!)

  • Mo

    I’m so angry about CW’s The Game. I feel like any show on Friday’s is likely to be canceled, cuz most people in that target audience (18-49) are out doing stuff not at home during that time. And…from the looks of it, I will NOT be watching ABC next year. No substance at all.

    • j

      I agree with your comment. I dont know how many people watched The Game, but I LOVED it. I thought it was original and drop-dead hilarious. Thats too bad — they made a huge mistake.

  • Maura

    All I REALLY want to be renewed (because the others are already officially canceled) is ‘Life.’ C’mon NBC! Do what you did with FNL. Anything. Anything to keep this show alive. One of the BEST on television.

  • KateW

    It is nice to know that Fringe has some hope but I am very sad about Kings. My fingers are crossed for the Unusuals.

  • Stacerella

    I can do without a lot of those on the fence shows but I canNOT do without my goofy Chuck and my intelligently quirky and somewhat deep Life. I really think it’s a great show that is being ignored by its own network.

  • Nick

    Flashpoint is a long shot? Doesn’t it regularly win its time slot with ratings almost on par with Numbers? Plus the costs are shared in some Canadian production deal, aren’t they? I’m really surprised it’s likely to not come back!
