ABC Cancels Uncle Buck

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Not that I’ve watched an episode of Uncle Buck, but I’m a little surprised by the news. I thought the Mike Epps sitcom was performing solidly.

ABC’s adaptation of the 1989 feature film had a promising start. The alphabet network issued a press release touting ratings for the series, which averaged 3.8 million total viewers in Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. That was an 81% lift from ABC’s performance in the same time period over the course of the same four weeks a year ago. Uncle Buck also averaged a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo, more than double ABC’s average from a year earlier. When DVR playback was factored in, it reached a robust 5.2 million total viewers for its premiere.

Sadly though, ratings fizzled and viewer feedback wasn’t kind. Still, I can’t see the show costing ABC too much to produce. Clearly, the powers-that-be just weren’t fans of the comedy.

Did you watch the show? Will you miss it? Sound off below.

HBO Cancels Vinyl After Previously Renewing It

It appears HBO had buyer’s remorse. The network previously renewed Vinyl for a second season, less than a week after the 70s-set drama premiered. The news follows the exit of showrunner Terence Winter, who left in April reportedly due to creative differences.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” HBO said in a statement. “Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”

Sorry Orphan Black fans. BBC America just dropped a major bomb ahead of the show’s Season 4 finale airing tonight. It announced that the sci-fi thriller about cloning will end after Season 5. The final 10 episodes will air sometime in 2017.

“We are excited to deliver an epic conclusion to the tale of Sarah and her clone sisters,” co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson said. “The past four seasons have been a phenomenal adventure, and we are eternally grateful to our loyal fans who have loved the twists and thrills of our weird little show. We are thankful to our partners at Temple Street, and to BBC AMERICA and Space for their support and giving us the opportunity to end on a high.”

CBS Finally Reveals Limitless’ Fate

In: Donovan, TV Shows

When the big broadcast networks present their new schedules at the annual upfronts, typically every current airing series knows if they’ve received a renewal or cancellation. Not so for Limitless.

The freshman series starring Jake McDormand and Jennifer Carpenter was in a state of limbo. Even after CBS’ presentation, the show’s fate was still up in the air. Finally, all has been revealed. Find out below.

With upfronts just around the corner, networks are busy scrambling to tie up loose ends. ABC just revealed the fates of nearly all their shows.

First off the good news. Freshman comedies The Real O’Neals and Dr. Ken both live to see another day and score sophomore seasons. Meanwhile, the critically-acclaimed limited series American Crime received a green light for a third season. It’ll be interesting to see what touchy subject creator John Ridley tackles next.

In somewhat of a surprise, The Catch snags a renewal as well. By far, the series is the worst performing among the Shondaland stable, but I’m sure the network doesn’t want to piss off Shonda Rhimes. Ergo, the renewal. I actually don’t mind the show, so I’m fine with this decision, along with the other renewals.

The last remaining CSI property, CSI: Cyber, has bitten the dust. The upcoming 2016-2017 season will be the first time without a CSI-branded program on the schedule in 16 years. It truly is, the end of an era over at CBS.

CSI: Cyber was the fourth CSI series, following the original series which ran from 2000-2015. The spinoffs, CSI: Miami and CSI: NY aired from 2002-2012 and 2004-2013 respectively.

FOX Renews Bones For 12th & Final Season

In: Uncategorized

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.
