'Journeyman" is an interesting new show this season. Makes you think ... which is rare for show to do!!
Unfortunate that the strike is putting a giant dent in its production and airing.

Why doesn't this list include shows on cable/satellite?

OMG! This is so ridiculous...This sucks i don't want to see reruns i want to see new stuff. Can't they be happy that they have fans. This is all about money, apparently they don't care about how we feel, that's what should matter. I mean shouldn't it, fans are the ones that helps the shows keep going. They are just ruining it for us all.

What about Pushing Daisies????

That will pretty much kill Family Guy... I, and many other loyal fans, won't watch the scab episodes and it seems unlikely that MacFarlane is going to want to come back to work with Fox after this. He's the voice of the three main characters on the show! Who wants to watch something not quite as funny with characters who don't quite sound like themselves? :P

Aw man, I hope they come back and finish that last Caveman episode!

Ausiello at TV Guide already compiled a big, ACCURATE list days ago. Just link to that instead of passing some list off as your own. And if it is your own, you spent a lot of time for nothing. Especially with the inaccuracies.

Like someone said, The Office's last episode is tonight. AND, Family Guy production is NOT shut down! I just read an article yesterday saying that they were producing the show without Seth MacFarlane. As crazy as that is, it's what they're doing.

Oreo, why do you have to be such a rude jerk all the time?

Like I said, what I listed was rumor from what I had heard. You having updated information is great but you could have phrased it a little nicer.

TV Guide has a page that they are updating often with how many episodes are left:
