    tv was dead when they strted making crap like the sarah connor chronicles

    Very glad they are doing another chuck thou

    I'm with you on this one. You get really into a series and then find out halfway through that they've pulled the plug on it. I had it last year with Jericho. They pulled it on episode 7 of the second series and left it with no ending at all!!

    I'm expecting the same will happen with Fear itself and The Eleventh Hour, as the American fans are already hearing rumours over there.

    yep great to see it coming back, although the rumour is the cuts will be big with anna wu being cut and fewer fringe cast members. But at least its back.

    I'm gutted I missed the fight to save firefly so I think I doubled my efforts to save tscc to compensate for not being in the firefly fight and this feels like the scum at *** are killing off 2 shows for me that I've invested so much time in.

    Its gutting to follow show only to be stabbed mercilessly in back by bland tv execs in cheap suits, and 2nd hand aftershave.

    I hope they dont pull the eleventh hour as i like that better than fringe.

    hears a cheats sheet with a break down of all the shows that have been cancelled or renewed. Although its not always 100% accurate. So there may still be some hope for the 11th hour fans.

    Bummer with TSCC. I thought it was one of the better American series. I think it is all to do with ratings, which means money. Pity no one else can pick these shows up and show them, as 8 million viewers (or however many) might not be enough for Fox, but you think someone else would be able to make enough money out of them to continue....
    Jericho was another good series imo. Surely they could drop one of the many CSI incarnations and play the game...

    Its a downer when programs are canned, Journey man, Torchwood, Walkers Spring Onion crisps (sorry not a tv show lol).

    Well, I have impeccable taste in tv shows so I think I should comment.

    SCC is pretty rubbish. I feel like I have to work hard to like it out of some love for the original films and my desire to see Lena Headey do well. Won't miss it.

    Chuck - too lovely to hate. It's not exactly compelling viewing but everyone seems pleasant enough so why not.

    Now, is tv dead? No. 3 of the best tv shows of all time have just finished or near finishing (Lost, The Wire and Battlestar Galactica) so retrospectively this will be seen as a rich period.

    What is a problem is tv in this country, dominated by 'reality shows' and soaps made for those with less discerning tastes. The fact that a comedy like Pulling gets cancelled shows that the BBC is dying though.

    Torchwood hasn't been cancelled.

    they actually did a better job wrappiing up SCC at short notice than they did with say surface i thought,
    BSG started good then just got very annoying with too much soul searching of annoying characters and pseudo religious babble

    quick update to add that tscc hasn't officially been cancelled yet, well according to a couple of writers on the show. Seems a couple of people have jumped the gun in anouncing its official cancellation including the actress leven rambin(riley, another reason to thank jesse for shooting her) but its not looking good.

    tv is well prob until this afternoon on life support.

    check out lie to me

    Doesn't look like Summer Glau has anything else lined up either. She could be the next MIscha Barton.

    neither has lena, but thomas dekker is filming the remake of nightmare on elm street, brian austin green has filmed a new pilot as well as being heavily involved in the new green lantern film and a few of the writers are working in the next season of fringe so its not all doom and gloom.

    and hey ho warner bros hold the rights so who klnows it may move to another network. I can but hope.

    incidentally and ignoring the tscc haters the early reviews for t4 aren't the greatest but its still early days.

    oh and the unit has also been shelved.

    I won't miss My Name is Earl, but TSCC was the second best show on TV this year, imho. It will be sadly missed, for sure. It is a shame that TV is such a numbers game in the States - I guess TSCC cost too much to make, for the numbers it was pulling in.

    I'm sure Summer Glau won't be out of work too long though......................:-D:w00t:

    Nooo.
    I love TSCC. Had an amazing cliffhanger at the end that needs to be resolved. What a waste.
    And My Name is Earl. Nooo
