TNT dumps Saved, adds two new shows

Holly HunterWhile Saved garnered quite a few good reviews, and some respectable ratings, it's no The Closer. And apparently the press and numbers weren't enough to convince TNT that there should be a second season of the Tom Everett Scott drama. Instead, the network is looking to bring two different pilots to series.

Holly Hunter stars in Grace as an Oklahoma City police detective who is visited by an angel and given a chance to redeem her life. It also stars Tom Irwin (Related), and Laura San Giacomo (Just Shoot Me). I'll watch anything with Holly Hunter, or Laura San Giacomo, in it at least once, so I plan to tune in when this show takes off. But based just on the tag line, my expectations are low.

Also on the schedule is Heartland. This one stars Treat Williams as the brilliant surgeon, Nathaniel Grant. His dedication to his work causes problems with his health and his relationships. Now, if you are thinking, "Hey, that sounds a whole lot like Everwood." then you and I are on the same page. The show even stars Gage Golightly as his daughter Thea, who doesn't seem so far removed from Delia. Still, Treat Williams is always worth a look. And it has the bonus of Morena Baccarin (Firefly) as well. The show is currently planned to follow The Closer.

Saved should've been saved. It was one of the best dramas on tv. shame on you tnt, same goes for 'wanted', another gr8 action show. But no, if the ratings aren't "great" you cancel the show after one season. some shows take time to grow on people. Shame shame shame...

The only reason I watched TNT was to watch "Saved". Now that they cancelled it, TNT is dead to me. Thier other shows suck and are unoriginal and I have no interest in thier two new shows for this season, what watch them, like them, then TNT taketh away!! TNT save your network by bringing back "Saved"!!!

Once again a show that I really enjoyed bites the dust. Too bad, Saved was a great show.

PLEASE BRING BACK SAVED. IT TAKES AWHILE TO GET TO KNOW THE CAST AND HOW THEY RELATE. YOU DID NOT GIVE THIS ONE A CHANCE. THEN YOU GAVE US A HUGE CLIFFHANGER THEN CANCELLED THE SHOW . I FOR ONE REFUSE TO WATCH TNT ANYMORE. LOOK AT WHAT THE OTHER NETWORK IS DOING WITH STUDIO 60

I am very upset that Saved Isn't coming ack for a second season. The show was really very smart, witty, and sensitive. TNT is making a huge mistake by not renewing it. Another network should pick this show up and continue the series.

My husband and I are 50 and 54 years old and we loved watching saved. We were looking forward to the new season and then found out that it had been canceled. I think TNT made a big mistake in cancelling this show. Since Closer is in reruns at the moment there is absolutely nothing drawing us to TNT. Saved was different and I think you should bring it back.

TNT made a BIG mistake!! I started watching TNT ONLY because of SAVED!!! It's sad that people with money can sit back and make B*&% S*&^ decisions. People LOVED the show!! Get over ourselves. The Closer......PLEASE!! How many more CIS shows are giong to be copied? I guess it really doen't matter what the people want, as long as your check clears at the bank. TNT is sickening.

Taking Saved off the air was a mistake. You did not give this show a chance. It was a cast of unique, excellent actors. The story lines were relevent, unlike all the reality shows, which are created by unintelligent human beings. Are the ratings all that matter? Please bring back Saved or we will be forced to watch premium cable stations or more DVD's.

What a pathetic company well seems how the wife and i watch tnt all the time not no more about the only time now will be for a nascar race. She watches tnt from 8am till about 8pm everyday unless we go out. We just upgraded to the dvr and she has been wanting me to record her shows during the day and all but not anymore its sad that a show like SAVED the best show TNT ever did they drop. The closer is not all that great as it is it is the same stuff as CSI L&O i mean come on Saved goes perfect with ER oh well no more tnt

I was so excited to see the March 5th, 2007 premiere of Saved...I'm so disappointed. Taking TNT off my 'regular' channels. I've watched closer, good show. Saved was what TNT needed to maintain the momentum. BRING BACK SAVED!!!
