FOX Renews Bones For 12th & Final Season

In: Uncategorized
fox-cancels-bones

FOX is finally ready to bury Bones. The network announced it renewed the crime procedural for a 12th and final season, that will only air 12 episodes.

“In times like these, marked by instability and doubt, it’s comforting to know the world can count on at least one dependable beacon of stability. Apparently, that beacon is ‘Bones,’” series creator Hart Hanson says in a statement. “It just shows what you can do with an amalgam of genius cast, amazing crew, cunning writers, stalwart studio, sweat, a tough economy, a mercurial network, determination, luck, magic, miracles and the most loyal audience in the world.”

Both Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz will appear in the last batch of episodes, despite some behind the scenes drama. Both stars are currently suing the network and Bones producer, 20th Century Fox TV, over profits they feel they’re owed.

Do you watch Bones? Glad it’s coming back for one final season for a proper send-off? Weigh in below.

It was pretty much assumed after Julianna Margulies joked about her upcoming unemployment at the Casting Society of America’s Artios Awards. And now it’s official. The Good Wife is dunzo.

“It’s never easy to say goodbye to one of the crown jewels of your network and studio, much less to a show that is among the best on television,” said Glenn Geller, president, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, president, CBS Television Studios. “But it also feels very right to end with the seven-year story its creators envisioned, and to celebrate the show’s final run while at the top of its creative game. It has been CBS’s sincere privilege to broadcast and produce The Good Wife for seven extraordinary seasons. We thank and applaud the outstanding cast, led by the impeccable Julianna Margulies, and the consummate writing and producing team, headed by the brilliant Robert and Michelle King, who brought to life a smart, sophisticated series that has delivered audiences so many memorable characters and unforgettable moments. It is a series that will only grow in prestige as its episodes are watched again or discovered by new viewers for many years to come.”

CBS announced the news in an ad airing during Super Bowl 50. I believe this is the first time a network revealed a cancellation during the big game. Quite a savvy move given all the eyeballs watching.

The Season 7 finale aka series finale airs on Sunday, May 8. Check out the goodbye promo below. Will you miss The Good Wife? Share your thoughts below.

NBC Cancels Heroes Reborn

Well, that was a short-lived revival. Next week’s season finale will now actually be a series finale. Heroes: Reborn is dunzo.

Even though it was always touted as a 13-episode limited event series, I’m absolutely sure had the ratings been much better, NBC would’ve ordered another season of Heroes: Reborn. The revival premiered in September to 6.1 million total viewers and a 2.0 demo. It’s most recent outing only drew 3.7 million and a 1.0 demo.

Will you miss Heroes: Reborn? Surprised NBC canceled the show? Sound off below.

Girls To End After Season 6

Season 5 of Girls has yet to premiere but multiple media outlets confirm that Season 6 will be the Brooklyn quartet’s final hoorah.

It should really come as no surprise. After all, Lena Dunham didn’t make her feelings about ending the HBO comedy a secret. She’s stated in multiple interviews that Season 6 would be the perfect time to wrap up Girls.

“It’s really exciting,” Dunham previously told radio host Elvis Duran in Sept. 2015. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and I’m going to be 30, so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world.”

UPDATE: Dunham confirmed the news. Read her statement below.

NBC Cancels Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris

Guess it wasn’t the best time after all. After an eight-episode first season, NBC has pulled the plug on Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris. The network reveals the live format of the weekly variety series was a factor in their decision not to renew.

“We are extremely proud of the work Neil and the producers did on Best Time Ever,” an NBC exec told Variety. “People rewarded us for taking the risk of trying something different. It was an incredibly complicated and sophisticated form of television to put on a live show on a weekly basis. We’re proud of Neil for giving it his all and we have steely resolve to work together on something new.”

Best Time Ever premiered to 6 million total viewers and a 1.8 demo rating. It finished its run with 5 million eyeballs and a 1.4 rating.

Fans of NPH need not worry though. NBC is reportedly working on another project with the 42-year-old entertainer.

E! Ending The Soup After 22 Years

As Seinfeld‘s Soup Nazi would say, “No soup for you.” E! announced Wednesday that it’s not dishing up new episodes of The Soup in the new year and beyond. After 22 seasons, the final show will air Friday, Dec. 18 on the network.

“We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of The Soup. [The show] has delivered countless laughs and unforgettable episodes, and we are grateful to the talented team’s fearless wit and clever approach week after week,” E!’s exec VP of programming and development Jeff Olde said in a statement (The Hollywood Reporter). “Joel took the show to new heights for more than a decade, and his irreverent humor and unique brand of comedy as captured so perfectly on The Soup will be missed.”

The long-running pop culture clip show first debuted on the network in 1991 as Talk Soup. Greg Kinnear hosted it from 1991-1995 with John Henson (1995–99), Hal Sparks (1999–2000) and Aisha Tyler (2001–02) following thereafter. In 2004, the show was rebooted as The Soup with Joel McHale. The 43-year-old Community actor has hosted it ever since, spanning almost twelve years.

The CW Finally Cancels America’s Next Top Model

It’s deuces bitches!!! America’s Next Top Model is about to sashay down the runway for the very last time.

The CW announced the long-running modeling competition will end on December 4 when Cycle 22 crowns its final Top Model winner. Believe it or not, a world without smizing, booty tooching, Ty-overs and my personal favorite, Pot Ledom, is upon us.

“America’s Next Top Model was a successful franchise for two networks, first at UPN and then The CW, and it became not just a ratings hit, but a global pop culture phenomenon,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz in a statement. “I want to thank Tyra [Banks] and Ken [Mok] for all their years of success in establishing a show that was not just popular in the U.S., but all across the world”

ANTM first premiered on UPN in 2003. When UPN and The WB merged, the Tyra Banks show was the first show to air on The CW. With ANTM officially dunzo, Supernatural is the sole remaining show from the WB/UPN era.

Though no confirmed plans have been made, the network is reportedly considering a retrospective Top Model special in 2016. Given it’s mark on pop culture, I believe The CW should air one. Read Banks’ statement below.

Well, that didn’t last long. After two low-rated showings, FOX pulled the plug on Knock Knock Live. The Ryan Seacrest-hosted show’s last episode only delivered 1.6 million viewers and a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49. Not even Justin Bieber surprising a fan with a Quinceanara could lure in viewers 😉

I watched half of the premiere and literally fell asleep. With The Million Second Quiz only lasting a season on NBC, and this trainwreck on FOX for a split second, Seacrest must be getting a bit antsy about finding an on-camera gig after American Idol ends next year.

Did you watch the show? Do you think Seacrest can find another hit show to star in? At least producing those Kardashian shows will keep him busy for a long time. Sadly enough. Sound off below.
