    I'm always up for celebrating futility and failure, so sure.

    Um, have you missed The Wire, The Sopranos, Deadwood, Mad Men, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Treme?

    I agree that the crap major networks often cut good shows, like The Black Donnellys. But a sea change took place after about 2000 on the pay channels and cable channels. TV is no longer solely the refuge of crap.

    Bumping up the thread for 2 reasons. First: Arrow, Vegas, and Elementary were picked up for the full season.

    Second...

    We may need a ruling here, after all. Made in Jersey was cancelled on October 10. I recently read that NBC ditched its midseason Dane Cook comedy Next Caller, with 4 episodes in the (trash) can, but it looks like that happened October 12. More interesting is what's going on with NBC's pungent Munster offering Mockingbird Lane. They've decided to broadcast the $10 million pilot episode this Friday as a stand-alone special after cancelling it as a series sometime between October 1 and October 10. But even that isn't certain; this TVLine article suggests that NBC may raise it from the dead depending on how the special does in the ratings.

    Hopefully most of the new junk has been cancelled already. Frankly, I'm embarrassed that I am DVRing S2 of Revenge. I do this solely because of Madeline Stowe.

    1. Partners (CBS)
    2. Last Resort (ABC)
    3. Chicago Fire (NBC)
    4. The Mob Doctor (FOX)
    5. The Neighbors (ABC)
    The TV industry had slightly more faith in its product than I did. Today CBS cancelled Partners, and ABC cancelled Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue.

    Well, this is interesting. Made in Jersey, the awful legal serial drama on CBS, not only has the distinction of being the first show of the season to be cancelled, but now the only cancelled show to apparently receive a network resurrection order.

    666 Park Avenue is cancelled? Thank goodness. Now I don't have to see commercials for it during Revenge, a show that also insults the intelligence of every thinking American, but at least boasts Madeline Stowe in the cast. I watch Revenge, though I'm ashamed to admit it. But Stowe!
