With the networks readying mid-May announcements of their 2009-2010 schedules, The Hollywood Reporter has a story about what’s dead and what’s not so dead.
I was surprised to read, buried deep in the story, that the CW already considers “Reaper” “gone.”
How I read the Reporter’s story:
LIKELY TO RETURN
Ghost Whisperer (CBS)
How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
Law & Order (NBC)
Ugly Betty (ABC)
UNLIKELY TO RETURN
Eleventh Hour (CBS)
Kath & Kim (NBC)
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (Fox)
The Unit (CBS)
Better Off Ted (ABC)
Cold Case (CBS)
The Unusuals (ABC)
Without A Trace (CBS)
Though I don’t recall NBC officially canceling “Knight Rider,” “My Own Worst Enemy,” “Crusoe” or “Kings,” none of these abysmally rated hourlongs is mentioned in the story; I assume this means they’re all doomed beyond discussion as NBC’s “Jay Leno Show” era looms closer.
Also curious is lack of any mention of ABC's "Scrubs"; the network had been considering bringing it back with a revamped cast, but 2009 ratings for the expensive, established version have not been the greatest.
