TV shows that have been canceled for the 2012-2013 season may surprise you, as some of the shows started out with a bang, but somehow managed to fly under the radar of good ratings after they stayed on the air for a while. According to Celebrity Café, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox have announced some of their shows to get the ax. Yahoo made some educated predictions and posted them Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013. They have a feel for which shows will be next on the chopping block.
Some of the other networks are also in the process of deciding which shows will stay and which ones will get put out to pasture today.
Shows that have been canceled:
CBS has canceled “Made In Jersey,” this series never got off the ground in the ratings department. The network canceled this show before it even finished out the episodes.
NBC canceled the comedy “Animal Practice,” it started out strong and did well in the ratings, but a steady decline has opted the network to give it the ax.
ABC is getting rid of “Private Practice,” which has been around for a while. Kate Walsh moved to “Private Practice” as a spin-off from “Grey’s Anatomy.” It did well for a few seasons, but apparently it has worn out its welcome.
ABC put “666” on the chopping block. This series that offered up plenty of horror never packed on the ratings it needed for a second chance.
ABC has canceled “Last Resort” after its mediocre ratings dropped to poor as the season progressed.
CBS is doing away with “Partners,” which was their only new comedy offering this season. The time slot that “Partners” once had is now slated for “Rules of Engagement.”
CW canceled “Emily Owens M.D.” after only six episodes. While the show never did much in the ratings, many people weren’t even aware of this show. Maybe a little more advertising might have saved the good doctor?
Fox has put the hit on the “Mob Doctor,” which is too weak in the ratings for the network to order up any new episodes.
ABC is doing away with “Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment B,” which might be somewhat of a surprise for fans, as this show seemed to really take off at first. After ABC moved it to a new night, the ratings, which were dwindling, got even worse, so that show goes by the wayside.
Fox pulled “Ben and Kate” due to consistently low ratings. “Raising Hope” is now offered in back to back episodes to fill that time slot.
There you have it, shows that definitely aren’t coming back next season.
Shows most likely to get canceled:
Yahoo News put their two cents in on the shows most likely to go next. Shows like:
CBS - “Vegas” that doesn’t look long for this world with low ratings and two expensive stars, CBS might very well cut their losses with this one, suggests Yahoo.
CW’s “The Carrie Dairies” is really an iffy show when it comes to predicting what the network is thinking about for its future, but by summer it could very well be gone, predicts Yahoo. It’s just not “Sex and the City.”
NBC’s “Smash” is not long for this world and Yahoo gives it a big “Nope” when asking if they predict it will be back next season.
ABC’s “Happy Endings” will most likely experience half of its title’s name “Endings.” Yahoo doesn’t see this one coming back.
NBC’s “Community is “just too weird to live,” suggests Yahoo. They think its time has come.
