More dire news from the US with several more shows meeting their ‘natural’ end (or not) including a biggie, Without a Trace.
CBS reportedly approved Numb3rs at the expense of Without A Trace because it’s less expensive to produce, according to Michael Ausiello.
The Anthony LaPaglia show has been running since 2002, but with that pesky global economic crisis there was talk both it and Cold Case were on notice due to their price tags, however the latter has been renewed.
CBS has also dropped Eleventh Hour and renewed How I Met Your Mother, Gary Unmarried, Rules of Engagement, and The New Adventures of Old Christine.
Meanwhile the CW has moved on from Privileged.
