Are any of your favorite shows in constant danger of cancellation?

I hate it when I really start liking a low-rated show and it disappears. This happened last year with "Big Apple".

The only show that I watch that might be in danger is "Ed". I don't know how the ratings are holding up, but it seems like NBC has no respect for it. There's no "Ed" on again tomorrow night. It's such an excellent show, I wish more folks would watch.

Honk!

I'll be mad if Watching Ellie is not on the fall lineup like they said it will be.

I also heard that Family Law may be canceled, which will suck, it is one of my "I do not miss" shows of the week.

Other than that, I believe all my must see shows are all staying.

I remember when Newsradio was on and was always in constant threat of cancellation. That was such a great show.

Are you serious? No Ed tomorrow? Again? It feels like they've been averaging one episode a month. It's pretty frickin' easy to have "all new episodes for the rest of the season" (their lame commercial claim) when the rest of the season equals five episodes!

Okay, so there have probably been two episodes a month. But when every other one of them isn't... on par with the high quality I've come to expect from "Ed"... ugh.

I have concerns that The Job could go away and never return.

It would be a shame too as I feel this is one of the funniest shows out right now.

"America's Most Wanted" falls into this category for me. After its first brush with cancellation, which was only prevented by the truckloads of support mail that arrived at FOX, I still worry that the "bottom line" will eventually win out over the show. I have no idea where it stands in the Neilson's, but it's likely not near the top. It would be tragic to lose this show. It's not quality television, but it is entertaining and, most importantly, provides a valuable public service. If anything, it should be expanded to two hours.

Same here. I also would have to say The Job.

In danger? Shows I like are almost guaranteed to be cancelled!
Some of my favorite shows now are Family Guy and Futurama. I was also a huge fan of Big Apple, Brooklyn South and Millennium. among others. So my liking a show seems to be a kiss of death. Which worries me considering I love The Shield, and the reports of ratings and advertiser drop off. I don't think it will be canned yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't see a third season.

Not much left to worry about. All my "bubbles" have popped. Philly is probably the last "on the bubble" show I'd be really pissed if it didn't return. I like The Job and Watching Ellie and some other shows that I'd rather not be cancelled, but they don't compare on any level to the great shows that have already gone down. In a year where they cancel Once & Again, everyone's fair game.

Undeclared was halarious and I haven't seen an episode for over a month. Andy Ritcher sucks in my opinion. Undeclared is far superior.

The Family Guy was a show I really liked, but which was always in constant danger of cancellation... that is, until it was cancled.

Family Guy can never be cancelled. It can only be "suspended indefinitely", which I hope doesn't happen again. I'm very happy that it's back on. It makes me not have to turn my TV off when the rapidly worsening Friends and the eternally awful Survivor is on.

I am quite sure at least half of the shows I watch and Tivo will be canceled. I would definitely miss Philly, Undeclared, Off Centre, Greg the Bunny, The Shield, Crossing Jordan, Ed, just to name a few. I definitely miss some of my guilty pleasures such as Dead Last, Go Fish, Millenium, Strange Tales, Undressed, Strange Luck, and many others I have forgotten.

I really like Greg the Bunny. And I like Dawson's Creek and Dark Angel (I know I know - a lot of you hate them now, but I'm in it for the long haul ).

Shows I liked (some I loved) that were cancelled this year:
Once and Again, Roswell, Felicity, As If, My Life as a Rock Star...there might be more I'm forgetting at the moment.

Previously cancelled shows I really liked: Roar, Strange Luck, Harsh Realm, Lone Gunmen...again, I'm sure there are more.

Cancelled when? Hardly any of the shows that I like make it except those on NBC Thursday and HBO. I should know cancellation is imminent.

Alias is very safe for now. I'll be very upset if 24 gets pulled, but I can't even imagine how mad I would have been if they hadn't made it the full season. I don't know what they'll do next year, but I bet it'll be very different.
Other shows I like but may not stick around:
Andy Richter
Undeclaired
The Job (I'll be shocked if it's renewed, honestly )
