Can we leave politics out of this and mourn over the fact that Supergirl seems to have gotten the ax from CBS?

Of course, from what I hear, it's moving to the CW under a new name.

I think a time slot change and increased costs may have factored into the cancellation of CSI: Miami. It could have lasted several additional seasons if it was not cancelled.

Huge numbers of people who act in, direct, produce, and fund tv shows are gay, and wouldn't surprise me if a solid percent of them are transsexual as well. In short, they aren't going to stop putting non-heteros in roles, so you all should get used to it.

CBS is done with the "Rush Hour" experiment. They'll probably burn off the remaining eps never to be seen again

So have antagonistic minorities. Stalemate, which is why I said "Perhaps you should leave your politics out of it."

I actually liked all three of those especially "Undateable" and "Crowded". I feel like the live experiment with "Undateable" helped speed up its demise

EDIT: "Telenovela" also cancelled
EDIT# 2 "Game of Silence" cancelled
I was pissed when I heard "Crowded" was cancelled. Seems like anything worth watching gets canned. I agree with Patrick Warburton. NBC killed it with the timeslot. They blew it.

Showtime cancels "House of Lies"

I LOVED This show but I saw the writing on the wall when Kristen Bell's new show was picked up.

Default Death of Broadcast

Out of 90 returning shows on broadcast television exactly three went up in the total ratings (i.e. over age 2).
The Bachelor ABC +0.31%
Dateline (Sun) NBC +1.85%
American Idol (Weds) FOX +5.15%
American Idol (Thurs) went down -6.50% (so basically people switched nights)

The most successful of the new scripted shows was a limited 6 episode revival of The X-Files

Of the new shows, 18 were renewed, 23 were cancelled, and 10 are undecided.
Of the new shows, only Little Big Shots averaged over 10 million viewers.

Broadcast scripted TV (especially sitcoms) are dying slowly, painfully, and publicly.
