The nine highest-rated canceled shows

terra-nova-finale

More than any year in recent memory, the survival of shows this season did not hinge on ratings.

You had Fox’s Fringe getting renewed for a final GTFO season with only 4.2 million viewers and slight 1.6 average rating. Then you had Terra Nova getting axed with 10.8 million viewers and a 3.6 rating. The biggest mitigating factor was a show’s cost — which usually rises along with its age — along with the difficulty of a time period, who owns the program, how intensely critics and fans feel about the series and, believe it or not, whether a network’s executives like the show. Here are the top nine highest-rated canceled shows this season:

1. Rob (CBS: 12 million viewers, 3.7 adults 18-49 rating): A 3.7? If NBC had a freshman comedy with a 3.7 average, it would run the show five nights a week this fall (Community was renewed with almost half this rating). Bully for CBS that their table scraps have these kind of numbers. The issue here was Rob Schneider’s comedy was shedding too much of its massive Big Bang Theory lead-in, and was trending the wrong direction. CBS suspects the time slot can do better.

CBS cancels 'CSI: Miami'

“It’s time for Miami … to go into retirement.”

YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHH!

CBS has made its CSI decision: CSI: Miami is being cancelled after a rather incredible 10-season run. CSI: NY is expected to live on for a ninth season, though that’s not official yet.

Though Miami (10.8 million viewers, 2.5 among adults 18-49) had better ratings than NY (10.4 million, 1.9), as we’re sure learning this upfront season, the ratings mattered less than other elements like the show’s time slot (NY was fairly stable in a tougher Friday night gig vs. Miami struggling on Sundays) and the show’s age (the older the series, the more expensive its cast and producer deals).

'Pretty Little Liars,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Secret Circle,' 'Revenge': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Howdy, Roomies.

It’s that time of the week again, so I hope you enjoy some of the juicy tidbits in this week’s installment. And with finales just around the corner, I imagine it’s all just going to get juicier as the weeks tick by.

But on that note, if there’s something I’m missing, don’t hesitate to put in a scoop request! (spoilerroom@ew.com) And a million thank yous to those who already write in! Wait, let’s make that a thousand. We’re in a recession after all. I have to be prudent.

‘PRETTY LITTLE LIARS’: THREE BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

What’s better than an in-office visit from a Pretty Little Liar? If I may douchily answer myself: A visit from TWO Pretty Little Liars. And that’s exactly what happened to me yesterday when Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario stopped in to film a quick video (which I’ll share with you Monday!), make me laugh (you’ll see…), and answer some of your burning questions!

'Once Upon a Time' ratings top Sunday entertainment shows

The magic is still with ABC: Once Upon a Time led all non-sports shows Sunday night in the ratings.

Though NBC won the night, thanks to the Pro Bowl NFL game, ABC’s Once Upon (10.8 million viewers, 3.4 adults 18-49 rating) rose 6 percent and had its most-watched episode in 11 weeks. The fantasy drama led into a Hallmark movie that was actually called A Smile as Big as the Moon (6.9 million, 1.5). READ FULL STORY

'Pan Am' hits series low, 'The Good Wife' is flat

Was everyone watching football or at the movies catching another showing of Breaking Dawn? Dramas like Pan Am and The Good Wife hit some depressing lows on Sunday, which was dominated by football and the animated shows on Fox.

NBC won the night in the key demo (5.2 rating/13 share) and viewers (13.7 million), as the game between two probable NFC playoff times (Detroit and New Orleans) earned a 6.5/15, according to early results. Fox came in a close second (5.1/12), with The Simpsons earning a 4.0/10, followed by Allen Gregory (2.4/6), Family Guy (3.5/8), and The Cleveland Show (2.5/6).

ABC came in a distant third (2.2/5), with all of its shows hitting troubling lows. America’s Funniest Home Videos was down 22 percent to a 1.4/4, followed by Once Upon a Time (down 9 percent to a 3.1/7), Desperate Housewives (down 13 percent to a 2.6/6), and Pan Am (down 11 percent to a 1.6/4). We already know that the period drama is one step away from flat-out cancellation: The ABC drama’s co-star Karine Vanasse sent a tweet that heavily suggested the show was finished: “Well, we received THE call, #PanAm is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas. But up to the end, we’ll give it our all!”

CBS finished fourth with a 2.1/5, with 60 Minutes down 51 percent to a 1.8/5, followed by The Amazing Race (down 7 percent to a 2.7/6), The Good Wife (flat with a 1.9/4), and CSI: Miami (up 16 percent with a 2.2/5).

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Glee,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'American Horror Story': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Awwww. Y’all know what I realized this week?

It’s been just about one year since we first started our show-mance (and I mean that quite literally). Our mutual love for television has brought us together and I couldn’t be happier about it. So many thanks for your readership, harassment, and love. Sometimes, it all even came rolled in a single e-mail. Crazies after my own heart — I love it.

So I hope you enjoy today’s installment and the comfort of knowing that you’re now officially my longest relationship ever. Woo!!… I think.

Also, celebrate by sending me more questions and ponderings. (E-mail: SpoilerRoom@EW.com or Tweet: @EWSandraG) You’re great people and I appreciate you. Happy Anniversary!! (Note: It was officially last Saturday, but in the grand tradition of all my relationships, I forgot. So we can celebrate now!)

‘GREY’S ANATOMY’: KIM RAVER TALKS TEDDY’S GRIEF
So, readers, was Grey’s Anatomy not the most heart-wrenching thing ever last night? I was consoled only by the fact that I was sure there were other people somewhere bawling along with me. But aside from leaving me with puffy eyes, the episode also left us all with a burning question: What’s going to happen to poor Teddy? Well, when I spoke with Kim Raver, she weighed in on what’s next. “It’s like the time-bomb waiting to explode,” she says. “I know that she doesn’t just dissolve into a puddle on the floor. It’s not that kind of grieving. I know she will go into ‘Let me try to fix it’ mode. But we don’t know how long that will hold.” READ FULL STORY

Favorite returning TV shows in trouble

After we analyzed which new fall shows were in ratings jeopardy, readers keep asking: What about the returning shows? Fringe? Community? House? Gossip Girl? Your wish for additional stress, granted: Here are some veteran series that returned weak in the ratings this fall and could be in danger when networks make their renewal decisions next year: READ FULL STORY

'Pan Am' takes a dive, 'Housewives' ties series low

Jet lag, already? The ABC dramas took some serious hits in the adults 18-49 demographic, with new series Pan Am dropping 27% to a 1.9 rating/5 share and 6.4 million viewers, according to preliminary ratings. (Death watch alert! When a show hits the 1 rating range, its chances for renewal drop precipitously. Just saying).

Desperate Housewives also decreased 10% from last week, earning a 2.7/6 and 8.4 million. It tied its series low, even though it was ABC’s best performing show for the night. America’s Funniest Home Videos earned a 1.4/4 and 6.6 million and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition logged a 2.0/5 and 7.3 million. READ FULL STORY

'Desperate Housewives' way down; 'Pam Am' still manages to take flight

Even without Peyton Manning, the Colts game was a huge draw for NBC, which took the first Sunday of the 2011-12 TV season in adults 18-49 (5.9 rating/15 share) and viewers (14.8 million), according to preliminary results. The game itself (7.2/17) was still down 22% in the demo versus the last one on Sept. 18 — but this time, it had to face originals on the other networks. READ FULL STORY

'Sopranos' star coming to 'CSI: Miami' -- EXCLUSIVE

CSI: Miami is about to get a little hotter with the addition of a fan-favorite Sopranos star.

Drea de Matteo is set to guest star on the CBS hit during November sweeps, and she has what sounds like a fun role on the show: de Matteo plays a sexy and smart poker player who’s the only woman competing in a dangerous, high-stakes illegal game. When the game is robbed and a man is murdered, we learn she’s actually a devoted mother out to avenge the attempted murder of her son in a similar robbery that left him disabled.

In other words: “It sounds like this poker player” [puts on sunglasses] “is trying to flush out a killer.” [YEAAAAHHH!]

“We’re thrilled to have an actress of Drea’s caliber on the show,” says Miami executive producer Barry O’Brien. “We all fell in love with her as Adriana on The Sopranos and watching her bring a complex and nuanced character to life is a revelation.” In recent years, de Matteo has arcs on Desperate Housewives and Sons of Anarchy. And though her role on Miami isn’t for a couple months, you can catch the crime drama when it returns on Sunday night at 10 p.m.

'The Vampire Diaries,' 'White Collar,' 'Supernatural,' 'Raising Hope': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hey, Roomies. I missed you during my travels! But your letters and questions kept me warm last week in San Diego during Comic-Con. (No, seriously, they made me sleep outside and I used them as a blanket. I’m kidding… probably.)

So, here we are, on the doorstep of fall TV, and we’re knocking hard until we get all the info we crave. Let’s get to it.

Remember to keep those queries coming! Mail them to spoilerroom@ew.com or tweet them to me @EWSandraG. Also, if you have a little time, send me your thoughts on Comic-Con.

We have 360-ish days to work on it, and we’d like to start now. Love you like nerds love Mrs. Fields and overpriced memorabilia! Till next week.

‘VAMPIRE DIARIES’: KLAUS AND ELENA DISH!
There’s so much to look forward to on this season of The Vampire Diaries. Elena’s 18th birthday, bad Stefan, and soapy Damon. But when prompted for his outlook for the season, Joseph Morgan says he’s most excited to meet Klaus’ family. “We get a chance to go back and see the point where they became vampires and where the curse was placed on Klaus to suppress his hybrid nature, his hybrid side,” he told a roundtable. “It’ll be interesting when we introduce other originals who are possibly equally as powerful or have some sort of emotional hold over Klaus … to see what that brings out of him.” READ FULL STORY

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'

Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).

Fire up your DVR playlists, kids … here are all the broadcast net finales. READ FULL STORY
