Update: Which shows might not be coming back next season?

New AmsterdamLast month, Anna told you which shows were on the bubble, the shows that were might not be coming back. Now TV Guide's Michael Ausiello has an updated list of which shows are in trouble. He gives a 1-10 rating for each show, 10 meaning the show is definitely coming back and 0 meaning the stars should start looking for work right now.

While I'm not surprised that ABC's Big Shots gets a 0 and that Cane gets a 2, I am a little surprised that CBS' Shark only gets a 5. That show gets very good ratings, though maybe he knows some insider gossip the rest of us don't. Sarah Connor Chronicles fans should note that he gives that a 9 (which I agree with), but New Amsterdam fans might be a little concerned about that 4 (originally a 6, but FOX just cut the number of episodes they wanted, so...).

Some shows get more than one number, like The New Adventures of Old Christine. He says that the chances of it being renewed by CBS are a 6, but if ABC picks the show up the chances are a 10.

You know, with the low amount of viewership they've been getting on, well, anything on the CW, they should keep Reaper another year and hope it builds viewership. It still has a pretty good following, right?

Also, New Amsterdam is one of my favorite shows currently airing! I really hope it returns! Did they change the episode order before or after the pilot aired?

Reaper gets a 4. Pity--it actually has gotten way way better and people really ought to give it a shot before it's canceled.

Agreed. Especially with the intro of Cady and less focus on Andi the show picked up a lot of steam. Hopefully it will not be condemned to Galdys' hands!

It is kind of weird seeing a name from a decade ago on usenet (raswr-j) at random on the net...

Have I been watching a different version of Reaper? I've been consistently entertained by it. The melodrama with Andi has been distracting, but the entire cast is so game that its hard for me not to enjoy it.

I'm just glad things are looking up for How I Met Your Mother and Eli Stone. Delightful shows the pair of them. For fans of shows not likely to return, I sympathize. I have had way too many shows I've invested in only to be taken away.

They can't cancel The Unit! One of the best hours of TV out there!

Them dipshits better not cancel the unit or himym. But if they do, I won't have to watch anything on Can Barely Stand (CBS) ever again. That is the last 2 shows that I watch on that shitty network. I have boycotted all new shows and when all my faves have been dumped I will be done with tv until they reform the out-of-date ratings system.

The only show that I am really concerned with on that list is Cane, which was one of the new shows this past fall that I looked forward to every week. I hope some does pick up New Adventures of Old Christine; I will watch it if nothing else is on.
