Fox logoIt's that time of year again, the upfronts, when TV networks decide which shows live and which shows die. This year Fox has become the first network to announce which shows are being culled, and it's bad news for Christian Slater. Again...

Fox announced that it's cancelling five of its live action shows: 'Human Target,' Lie to Me,' 'The Chicago Code,' 'Traffic Light' and 'Breaking In.' It also dropped the ax on some of its drama pilots, including the much talked-about 'Locke & Key' and 'Exit Strategy.'

"It's been like, four days. I can't believe you haven't caught this mouse yet," Alex said.

"I know, he's like my bin Laden. Jessica bin Laden, this super hot Arab girl I went to college with," Dave said. Then viewers heard a pause. The original line, "The one that got away," was removed.
