View Full Version : What shows do you think are on the chopping block?

Here's what I assume are on the chopping block after this season:

Crossing Jordan: 7-8 million viewers, always in 3rd place
Medium: 8-8.5 million viewers, always in 3rd.
Las Vegas: Under 10 million viewers, I think cost will affect it's return
The Apprentice: It's time to end it.
What about Brian?: Lots of hot girls can't save this show.
Studio 60: 3 million an episode and 6.5 million viewers, it's as good as gone
Veronica Mars: low ratings
Gilmore Girls: aging show
Supernatural: lowest rated show on Thursdays
Friday Night Lights: Can 6-6.5 million viewers be enought for a 2nd season?

NBC:
they can move Medium/Crossing Jordan back to Mondays at 10pm if the Black Donnellys fails there. I think NBC will keep Las Vegas and perhaps move FNL to Sundays at 8. It may be time for Scrubs to call it quits as it isn't keeping enough of the Office lead in. Unfortunately, 30 Rock is faltering too, falling to its lowest ratings on Thursday yet. NBC really likes 30 Rock but the ratings have been declining. Apprentice should go too.
Studio 60 is a definite goner. NBC has so many holes that it will probably plug with more Deal or No Deal. So they may stick with shows they would normally cancel.

Fox:
I think they will keep Til Death even though it is not very good. I think they will can the War at Home and keep the rest of their lineup that they haven't canned already. Drive looks ridiculous.

CBS: They may cancel The Class because Rules of Engagement looks strong enough that they could plug either that or Old Christine into the 8:30 slot. Jericho needs to do well tommorrow or else it could also go. They may cancel King of Queens. CBS doesn't have many holes to plug.

ABC: is a mess and is weak almost everywhere except Sunday and Thursday and Dancing with the Stars once that comes back. They should cancel George Lopez and according to Jim. What about Brian is not drawing viewers and even Tiffani Theisen and Stacey Kiebler will not save the show probably.

The CW is even worse off than ABC. They should cancel everything on Mondays except Everybody hates Chris. They may cancel 7th Heaven, Gilmore Girls (Alexis Bledel may not come back), definitely Veronica Mars, and maybe One Tree Hill. Basically everything is down since the move. The only sure bets to keep are Models/Geeks, SmackDown and SmallVille and Supernatural.

Some things on the CW are going to survive just because they don't have a choice. The one drama they tried to launch this year failed miserably and I don't think they'd want to go into next year with a lot of new programming. That's why they are pushing so hard for another year of Gilmore Girls. I think one of Veronica Mars/Supernatural will survive, right now I'd guess Supernatural.

NBC royally fucked up this season with all of their decisions, however, their Thursday line-up hasn't been this strong in years. Studio 60 may get a second season, but only with a 13 episode order as the advertisers are there and they do owe it to Sorkin for what happened with The West Wing. NBC has been good about giving deserving shows a chance to find their audience, so hopefully Studio 60 will stay for a bit longer. I don't see them cancelling Medium or Crossing Jordan, but both do need to go back to Mondays. However, I do see The Apprentice being the first to get the axe (because it sucks this season, and I've been a fan since the beginning).

CBS: I only watch two shows on this network: How I Met Your Mother and The Class. The former which is staying, the latter's fate is yet to be determined. I'm hoping the latter gets another season to improve as once Lucy Punch was fired, the show finally found it's groove and has been firing on all cylinders since.

FOX and ABC: Don't watch a show on either network anymore.

The CW: As long as Veronica Mars stays, I'm fine.

NBC: Crossing Jordan is done after this season thats for sure, NBC really fucked this show up by not airing it for 8 months. i love Las vegas but things are looking grim, now getting beat by close to home every week (don't understand why people would watch that borefest of LV) & the show is costly paying James Caan must be a bitch for NBC.

It may be time for Scrubs to call it quits as it isn't keeping enough of the Office lead in.

oh, your playing with fire there, Scrubs is a great show and should be kept on the air but moved to a different timeslot. remember %90 of the reason that it loses alot of the office's lead in is because apparently everyone like's CSI & Grey's Anatomy, both shows get like 30 billion viewers and scrubs gets the bad end of the stick, personally the appeal in CSI & greys over Scrubs is beyond me. 30 rock is done after march 15 when Andy Barker P.I. starts.

NBC has so many holes that it will probably plug with more Deal or No Deal.

i may disagree with what NBC will do but your rite they will stick to there safe shows like deal or no deal, which is maybe the worst show on tv next to greys anatomy.

NBC is in a real shithole this year most of there shows come in 2nd or 3rd place even heroes is coming in 2nd now, ER hasn't been in 1st in a long time either.

FOX: i don't think there is one thing besides the war at home, nanny 911 and trading spouses that i like on that channel. with the piece of garbage known as american idol, that show will keep fox strong no matter what happens to everything else. House is not my cup of coffee, and Bones-i don't see the intrest there.

CBS: They may cancel King of Queens
WHAT? the king of queens is in its final season now so they won't cancel it. CBS is the strongest network this year, they have alot of good shows and they seem to be doing a good job, now with csi: ny beating Lost every week in the ratings and two and a half men and rules of engagement beating 24 and heroes i think cbs is on a role, the only sore spot is that CSI is getting beat by Grey's every week. NCIS is doing great this year coming in 2nd every week, i know that sounds bad but its up against american idol so it won't win thats for sure, i love NCIS good show.

ABC: I hate ABC, its a joke it really is. there only real 2 strong shows are Grey's and Desprate Housewives and i hate both of them. Ugly Betty is god awful, men in trees through a good show is always coming in 3rd against Shark & ER. there comedies this year are the worst i have seen in 15 years of tv, big day was a poor excuse for a sitcom, knights wasn't funny and george lopez show sucks. the thing about ABC shows is there colors they use for shows are so plain and boring it makes you wanna shot the tv. over ABC's history Coach & Roseanne were the only entertaining shows they ever had, through coach is my #1 favorite show of all time and roseanne is up there.

CW: the CW is indeed worse than ABC by a long shot. i hate there whiny bitch dramas and there comedies are garbage. they really fucked themselves over by cancelling Reba-which was a really good show and the only show i have ever liked on the WB/CW over its Mediocre history. i really don't know how this station doesn't go under.

oh, your playing with fire there, Scrubs is a great show and should be kept on the air but moved to a different timeslot.

I don't know. I've watched Scrubs from day one, but it feels like its best moments are behind it and it's time to go. That musical show was definately a 'jump the shark' moment.


ABC: I hate ABC, its a joke it really is. there only real 2 strong shows are Grey's and Desprate Housewives and i hate both of them.

Um... Lost?


over ABC's history Coach & Roseanne were the only entertaining shows they ever had, through coach is my #1 favorite show of all time and roseanne is up there.


Hold 'em up there. Just off the top of my head, I'm thinking..... Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Welcome Back Kotter, Barney Miller, Taxi, Three's Company, Charlie's Angels, Home Improvement, Alex Haley's Roots, The Day After, plus all of those great made-for-TV films from the '70s like Duel, The Night Stalker, The Night Strangler, Trilogy Of Terror.

CW is in a precarious spot. It could purchase new shows at the same cost of currently running shows and get similar ratings. It seems to me in its own best interest to fill as many slots as possible with new programming.

American Idol has such a strangle hold on its time slots that scheduling is a nightmare for the other networks. Monday & Friday at 8pm and the nightly 10pm slot are very diffucult to retain viewers. Most networks already have shows in the hot spots not occupied by Idol or House or DH or GA. The networks will be battling for some of the worst spots on TV.

Which is why, as it pains me to say it since I like both shows, Veronica Mars & Supernatural are both gonna get axed. I suppose there high production costs don't hurt either.

Chowderhead - Scrubs is seemingly wrapping itself up admid rumors that Braff will not return - so it doesn't count.

In Case of Emergency and Knights of Posterity are both done.

Others:
What About Brian
Studio 60 (too expensive to produce for such small ratings)

I tend to agree with others regarding the CW shows. What else have they got? They can't expect too much considering their limited market of broadcasting outlets. Supernatural is no more expensive that Smallville (which IMHO should just end already). I too hope that Veronica Mars makes it, but at least they're making it somewhat wrap up nicely (after last night's episode)!

I could see <i>Studio 60</i> surviving, especially if Sorkin agrees to cut production costs by whittling down on the ensemble case. This would destroy the show, but I find it hard to care since I'm giving up on it at the end of the season.

Ayre
02-21-07, 08:57 AM
CW absolutely has to hang on to the shows that are at least a blip on the ratings radar.

Last week.
5. “Smallville” (CW) 5.07m

Thats a little above the 4.8 it averages.

With NEW programming you can at least generate a 2-4m buzz rating. VM struggles to attain the ratings that a new show would generate from buzz and its in a prime spot.

13. “Veronica Mars” (CW) 1.1/3

Up against House is a good spot for a new show. Even though House gets stellar ratings, it is probably the easiest to counter program for.

The following is the CW ratings for the week starting January 28

1.Smallville-5.0 million
2.Friday Night Smackdown-4.5 million
3.Gilmore Girls-3.72 million
4.Reba-3.56 million
5.Supernatural-3.42 million
6.Veronica Mars-3.23 million
7.7th Heaven-3.16 million
8.Beauty And The Geek-3.11 million
9.Everybody Hates Chris-2.83 million
10.Reba (Encore)-2.61 million
11.All Of Us-2.46 million
12.The Game-2.25 million/Girlfriends-2.25 million
13.One Tree Hill-2.23 million
14.Beauty And The Geek(Encore)-1.88 million

What would you drop?

I don't see Lost getting 'canceled' per say, but if the ratings keep dipping this season, I could see ABC letting them end it next season. The show's expensive, the writers have claimed they want a set date to write towards the ending and it would definitely boost ratings for a season if they announced at the beginning that it was the last one.

starseed1981
02-21-07, 09:25 AM
Yeah, I don't see Lost getting cancelled or anything..especially since it's supposed to be there flagship show. But if the ratings don't improve, at the cost of a couple million an episode, the show won't be able to run the whole 7 seasons the writers want.

But they did do a smart move by moving it up an hour. If they went head to head with American Idol they would definitley be under 10 million.

On another note, I hope Friday Night Lights over on NBC is back. That's the one show that has really caught me by suprise this year.

Although Six Degrees is still officially on hiatus ...


from: TVGuide.com Ask Ausiello (January 17):
"According to ABC's Steve McPherson, possibly May. I'll believe it when I see it."
There is very little chance that Six Degrees will come back next fall, but it was my favorite new show of fall 2006.

We don't watch a whole lot of tv but one show we used to watch regularly was Without a Trace. Ever since it moved to Sundays, we haven't watched it weekly, the recording just sits in the dvr, it's almost like we will watch it if we don't have anything to watch, which is almost never. There used to be some talk of it here on this forum but it seems like it's dropped off completely.

I think Lost is on life support. I think ABC will give it one more year to wrap things up. I do not see Lost going past 5 years.

That is the only show that I watch, that is on life support. All the other shows have rebounded very nicely or we're already strong:

American Idol, Greys, 24, House, Housewives

King of Queens is officially done. So much so I think they're debating a "baby" scenario that Leah Remini is totally aganist. Me too, I'm actually hoping for the divorce and or break-up scenario. Those two have been nothing but negative energy quite some time...

Tiffani Thiessen's presence on What About Brian seals it. I heard Ted McGinley is in talks to play her dad.

It's sad that the Class is in trouble. It's a cute show, but too many episodes with that newscaster probably reamed it. How I Met Your Mother probably isn't in dire straits but it hasn't made me laugh for the past 5 episodes.

Studio 60's probably going. I was an insane Sports Night but this show makes me cringe--I just don't buy it.

I would hardly calll 12.5-14 million viewers in the crapper. But yeah if your comparing it's 1st season ratings when it was getting almost 20 million viewers, then yeah things are down. But, you have to take into account that the competition is so much tougher now.

As far as the CW goes as much as I hate to say it VERONICA MARS and SUPERNATURAL are pretty much gaurenteed to be canceled (due to the low ratings and the high production costs) - also its pretty much already been stated that the CW realizes they made a mistake with '7th Heaven' and it won't be back next year. GILMORE GIRLS/SMALLVILLE are both pretty much gaurenteed a spot on the listing if the writers/actors want to come back for another year, and it seems that ONE TREE HILL might actually stick around because it has solid (okay) ratings, but more importantly it is cheap to produce and the next season is going to be a 'reboot' season which means it will be very easy for new viewers to pick it up.

With ABC, WHAT ABOUT BRIAN is gone, their is no way that 5 million viewers is going to translate into another season (especially since the episode order was cut from 22 to 19). But I would be shocked if BROTHERS AND SISTERS and MEN IN TREES don't come back for a second season.

As far as NBC goes STUDIO 60 is a goner, they might be a 'big finale' but thats about it, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS could possibly return because its semi-cheap and critically loved. CROSSING JORDAN and MEDIUM might see another year but I wouldn't be surprised if they are time-shared (no reruns) in a semi-funky timeslot (fridays)....

I don't know. I've watched Scrubs from day one, but it feels like its best moments are behind it and it's time to go. That musical show was definately a 'jump the shark' moment.

what? the musical episode was great. i don't think scrubs has 'jumped the shark' at all.

I hope Studio 60 and Scrubs will both be gone next year. It would be nice if ABC could find something good to pair with Lost.

wow no one wants scrubs on the air anymore, dont know why? its the best show on tv and has been since scrubs debut in 2001. ABC? something good to pair with lost, like what?

Hold 'em up there. Just off the top of my head, I'm thinking..... Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Welcome Back Kotter, Barney Miller, Taxi, Three's Company, Charlie's Angels, Home Improvement, Alex Haley's Roots, The Day After, plus all of those great made-for-TV films from the '70s like Duel, The Night Stalker, The Night Strangler, Trilogy Of Terror.

Barney Miller was good your rite and so are alot of those shows but they were a really long time ago. home improvement is the most resent one. the night stalker and strangler were good movies. but compared to the other networks they don't have nearly as many hit series. what the Alex Haley's Roots?

King of Queens is officially done. So much so I think they're debating a "baby" scenario that Leah Remini is totally aganist. Me too, I'm actually hoping for the divorce and or break-up scenario. Those two have been nothing but negative energy quite some time...

yea its done cause its in its final season, for the 90th time. i do agree that they have some negative engergy, i don't know how there going to end the series.

I disagree about Scrubs being gone. It's on the bubble, but it has a shot to live another year still. I can't find the numbers but I was under the impression that the ratings were doing good all things considered, and were actually up a bit from last year. I also read recently that Bill Lawrence is confident if they want another season NBC will give it to them. He thinks he may have Zach Braff on board for another year too.

i guess that was a stupid question but what would be the point of ABC putting on an original series before lost, it would get crushed in the ratings by american idol and criminal minds and ABC would lose money.

Scrubs gets about 5 million viewers a week, it gets crushed by the highly overrated greys anatomy & CSI. i am confedient that Scrubs will be back for a 7th season as well, and Braff will be on board as long as Bill is still on board. if NBC doesn't pick it up ABC will for the final season.

It may be expensive to produce, but at the same time it is still the 3rd most-watched series on the network and add to the fact it is one of the networks signature series... season 4 and probably 5 are pretty much guareenteed.

I really, REALLY hope Supernatural doesn't get axed. It's a very under-appreciated show, if you ask me. I don't think Medium will get canceled, but they really should move it back to Mondays, where it's not competing against Lost and CSI: NY. Veronica Mars getting the kibosh is pretty much a given, but that's probably for the best, given the changes they're making to its format for the remainder of the season. Lost will survive no matter what, I think, primarily because of its season 1 ratings. Moving it back to nine o'clock would probably be wise, though.

Supernatural: lowest rated show on Thursdays

I actually think Supernatural is safe from the chopping block this year because it's in a cutthroat timeslot and CW has to be aware of what it's up against. (Both CSI and Grey's Anatomy - no CW show is going to do well against that competition.)

However, given the competition, the CW should just write that hour off with a couple of cheap junk sitcoms and move Supernatural to a timeslot where it can find its audience. (Sunday nights at 9pm would be perfect because that's where The X-Files once thrived in the ratings.)

Me too. My name is earl, the office, Scrubs & 30 rock is my favorite lineup of the week. the office is my least favorite out of the 3 but it wastes time till my #1 show, scrubs comes on.
NBC really can't change this lineup to much cause it would cost to much, it must be a bitch paying Alec Baldwin & steve carell and zach braff.

I'm hoping somehow VERONICA MARS survives. Are there any outstanding circumstances that could save the show? Popularity in foreign markets? Good DVD sales? Critical accalim?

im not a fan of the show or family guy but with family guy the DVD sales were so good that the show came back on tv, and is still on today. Critical accalim does bullshit, everything is critically accalimed nowdays.

I have finally started watching Supernatural from the beginning. I have two episodes left for Season 1 and of course this season. I must say that I really enjoy watching this show. I really hope it doesn't get cancelled and, I do like the pairing of Supernatural with Smallville on Thursday nights. Honestly, all of the shows that I watch on Thursday are on between 7 and 8 (CST) with the soon to be exception of Supernatural once I am caught up. I realize that the timeslot sucks for the CW, but, it works for me.

Supernatural is another favorite show of mine that could be axed but I guess it all depends on what pilots CW have on the horizon and do they think would be better than Supernatural?

VM is filmed in San Diego, California which carries a hefty price-tag all its own...

why do they film in san diego? isn't the show based on a fictional city?

I just hope that if Zach Braff decides not to come back to Scrubs, they'll put it out to pasture. I think that the last season of That 70s Show was just sad without it's main character.

Bill Lawrence said that if Zach Braff doesn't sign on for a 7th season he will not continue with the series and this season will be the final season of scrubs.

Season 7
Bill Lawrence told Mike Ausiello at TVGuide.com that Scrubs will return for a "seventh and final season, either on NBC or ABC." He also told Ausiello that if Zach Braff is not interested in doing a seventh and final season, there simply will not be a seventh season. He does however feel Braff will likely stay for a final season 7. On January 17, 2007, Zach Braff posted on his blog that he would be willing to return to Scrubs for a seventh season if "all the right pieces fall into place" including "Bill Lawrence staying on as creator/head writer" and "some scheduling tweaks."

lets hoping that everything works out and we get a 7th & final season.

another way they could maybe bring a 7th season without a network is to make it a 'direct to dvd' release (i don't know if its ever been done for a tv series), it would be of high cost and there would probally only be 9 to 13 episode but it would be better than nothing if neither NBC or ABC picks it up.

I blame NBC for screwing this show, this show could have gone on for 9 seasons if it wasn't for all the scheduling retooling.
