Ask TV Squad: What shows are not coming back?

by Richard Keller, posted Sep 17th 2006 9:11AM

Cast of ABC's Invasion. Will they be back for another season?Many of you reading our complete listing of fall premiere dates have been posting questions on the whereabouts of some of your favorite shows. For example, poster rach asks 'What happened to the show "Related" on the WB? Is there a premiere?'', while reader Jim asks 'What? No "Invasion"? How does it end? Is this a new trend ... to just terminate an ongoing series?' .

So, as a public service to you, the omnipotent readers of TV Squad, here is the complete list of shows that will NOT be returning to the network schedules this season.

ABC: Invasion (sorry Jim), Sons & Daughters, Less Than Perfect, Hope & Faith, Rodney, Commander-In-Chief (although a two-hour movie may be produced to tie up any loose ends), Freddie, In Justice, Emily's Reasons Why Not, Crumbs, Hot Properties, Jake in Progress (yes, one episode actually aired last season. John Stamos joins the cast of ER this season), Alias, The Evidence and Miracle Workers.

CBS: Threshold, Out of Practice, Courting Alex, CBS Sunday Movie, Love Monkey, Yes, Dear and Still Standing.

The CW (the combined networks of UPN and the WB): The Bedford Diaries, Blue Collar TV,Everwood (despite the letter writing campaign. In actuality, the creator of the series has moved over to ABC.), Living With Fran, Modern Men, Pepper Dennis, Related (our deepest sympathies, rach), Survival of the Richest, Twins, Cuts, Eve, Get This Party Started, Half & Half, Love, Inc., One on One, South Beach, What I Like About You and Charmed. The shows Reba and 7th Heaven, once thought to have been canceled, are returning to The CW. 7th Heaven returns on September 25th, while Reba will return mid-season.

FOX: Arrested Development, The Bernie Mac Show, Free Ride, Killer Instinct, Kitchen Confidential, Malcolm in the Middle, Reunion, Skating with Celebrities, Stacked, That '70s Show and Unan1mous.

NBC: Surface, Joey (Damn it!), E-Ring, West Wing, Will and Grace, Four Kings, Teachers, Heist, Celebrity Cooking Showdown, Conviction and Katie Couric (I know she's not a show, but she was certainly an institution over at the network). Fans of Scrubs and Medium shouldn't fear that these shows aren't on the current premiere list; they are slotted for mid-season.

Why is the CBS Sunday Movie not going to be on? Does this actually mean that there will be no more HALLMARK movies on CBS?

That is WRONG!!!! The Sci-Fi channel better pick up Invasion! There are only two shows I record to make sure I don't miss a single episode, and now one is gone. BAAAAD choice in my opinion....and if they continue to cancel shows without warning or endings, are going to lose A LOT of viewers.

Yeah, I love how everyone comes out of the woodwork AFTER Invasion was cancelled... Where was all this vocal support a year ago when the show was actually on the air? I blame it on YOU PEOPLE!!!

Sorry, I have to let my anger and frustration out somewhere.

"renew 'Invasion' or many a viewer will be alienated from your decision and never come back to your network."

Hahahah... a nice sentiment, but NOBODY ever takes those threats seriously. Because eventually a show will come on that you absolutely MUST see. Nobody's going to stop watching Grey's Anatomy just because Invasion was cancelled. I certainly know that *I* won't be stopping (and I *loved* Invasion).

i liked "Kitchen Confidential" and "Love Monkey"......so sad......oh, and lets not forget that both "Emily's Reason" and "Jake in progress" were both canned after one airings.....and "Commander in Chief" was killed because the network decided to change the show-runner...twice. this just showed how nuts people at ABC is, please, would someone tell these networks to stop killing their shows randomly? if you picked these shows up, have some faith in them. don't change nights around (CBS's "Courting Alex" and "Out of Practice") and complained about rating drop! please just let the shows go on further or at least wrap up (Fox's "Reunion")! Remember NBC's "Office" started off with a very low-rated first season?
