All of Your Favorite Shows May Get Cancelled This Year

Illustration for article titled All of Your Favorite Shows May Get Cancelled This Year

The Hollywood Reporter has released this year's list of network shows in serious danger of not making it to a new season, and it's filled with a lot of familiar names. Almost everything we watch, in fact.

Amongst the shows appearing on the list are NBC's Heroes and Chuck (although it's noted that the latter show is "75%" likely to return, thanks to its position as the network's strongest Monday night show), Fox's Fringe and Human Target, the CW's Supernatural and Smallville (both given 85% chances of return) and ABC's V and FlashForward, the latter of which is given a grim prognosis:

ABC's attempted "Lost" replacements started strong in the ratings, dropped fast, changed showrunners (twice for "FlashForward") and are now on a protracted winter hiatus. Expect ABC to keep one of these, and the "V" storyline seems more readily extendable to a second season.


We've already reported on the chance of FlashForward not making it to a second season, but don't prepare your televisual funeral clothes just yet; Dollhouse's surprise renewal last year should serve as a reminder than anything is possible in the world of television. Me, I'm half-expecting news of Heroes' fifth season any minute...

Wait, Fringe is on the cut list? WTF? If that's canceled I'll be seriously pissed. Bad enough Better Off Ted is probably dead, there's no more Lost after this year, Caprica doesn't seem to be doing well, V has issues, people only seem to see breasts on SGU... why are all the things I like on the chopping block?

Oy, what's left? Warehouse 13? They can't even get past using stock footage of Brooklyn and Wall Street (Deutsche Bank building) as Boston... or some other city. It wasn't NY. (The episode with Tricia Helfer - I saw it recently and that pissed me off) (again)
