More news of cancelled shows to emerge from the US includes The Unit and According to Jim (it made it this far because?).
Medium has been dropped by NBC but is still a possibility of heading to CBS. Maybe Patricia Arquette can forsee her fate?
FOX may also pick up My Name is Earl, which was also let go.
ABC cancelled Samantha Who, after the show couldn’t slash its budget deep enough to make a third-season pickup work.
Networks are currently revealing their Fall slates, which sees ABC offering a new two-hour comedy block on Wednesdays with Hank, The Middle, Modern Family and Cougar Town starring Courtney Cox.
ABC also promises Flash Forward in which everybody in the world has a vision of their lives six months into the future. Since presumably the entire series wouldn’t cover only six months, ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson said producers have already pitched how the show will carry past its first season.
“It has an extensive multi-season arc,” he said. “They’ve pitched me the last scene from this year … each season has its own cycle.”
For Grey’s Anatomy fans, McPherson also confirmed Katharine Heigl and T.R. Knight have signed again.
“They’re both signed on, I can’t say whether they will both be there,” he joked.
Meanwhile NBC will “split” its Fall shows into two seasons because of the Winter Olympics.
