V, ABCThat thunderous pop you just head was the sound of ABC dropping pretty much every single one of its bubble shows at once.

The network has reportedly canceled most of its lowest-rated series, including veterans 'Brothers & Sisters' and 'V' as well as newbies 'Off the Map,' 'No Ordinary Family,' 'Detroit 187,' 'Better With You' and 'Mr. Sunshine.'

Though it was speculated recently that 'Brothers & Sisters' could get an abridged season pickup, it turns out that star Rachel Griffiths' jokes about being unemployed are true after all. The fifth season -- now series -- finale aired last Sunday night.

Meanwhile, the second season (and now series) finale of 'V' aired back in March.

Courteney Cox's 'Cougar Town' Makes Way for Matthew Perry's 'Mr. Sunshine'

Matthew Perry"Must See Wednesday"? In a sign that they're all still 'Friends,' it's been announced that Courteney Cox will take a break in February and March while Matthew Perry launches his new sitcom in the 'Cougar Town' time slot.

In a statement yesterday ABC said that Perry's new show, 'Mr. Sunshine,' will debut on the network February 9, replacing 'Cougar Town' in the coveted Wednesday 9:30PM ET slot until April 13.

This positions the newbie sitcom in-between established hit 'Modern Family' and the new Shonda Romes medical drama, 'Off the Map' and gives it several weeks to gain an audience before 'Cougar Town' comes back April 13.

'Off the Map' will air from January 12 to April 13, when it will be replaced by the premiere of 'Happy Endings,' an all-new ensemble comedy starring Elisha Cuthbert ('24').
