I’m kind of interested in why the CW just basically rubber stamped and renewed everything, even Roswell which they haven’t shown any episodes from in season 3. Was someone lazy, they just don’t care any more about being the bastard child network or they’re happy with their sponsorship?

Looking forward to the Law and Order spin-off and CSI reboot

by Anonymousreply 202/22/2021

Damn, the CW renewed Batwoman. Even Cult had better ratings !

by Anonymousreply 302/22/2021

So what was canceled?

by Anonymousreply 402/22/2021

"Grey's Anatomy: awaiting word on season 18 (renewal talks under way)"

Fingers crossed!

by Anonymousreply 502/22/2021

You want to talk about lazy, R1, just look at new shows on CBS' slate:

CSI: Las Vegas, NCIS: Hawaii, FBI: International

Call Me Kat - renewed for two more seasons!

by Anonymousreply 702/22/2021

R6, CBS is the worst. I watch nothing on that network.

by Anonymousreply 802/22/2021

R8, not even Mom? GFY!

by Anonymousreply 902/22/2021

The only show on that entire list that I've watched is The Conners.

by Anonymousreply 1002/22/2021

OT I don’t like the original 911 but I like lone star a lot. I gave up watching This Is Us. Too depressing.

by Anonymousreply 1102/22/2021

Whaddabout (new) Dynasty?

by Anonymousreply 1202/22/2021

Network television is truly scraping the bottom of the barrel. What age group is exactly the audience for 95% of that garbage?? When L&O:SVU S23 is one of a couple of things I could even remotely see myself watching every once in a while.

by Anonymousreply 1302/22/2021

Isn’t CSI: Las Vegas the original recipe? They’re bringing it back?

by Anonymousreply 1402/22/2021

I never watched a single show on that list.

The only thing I did watch last year was Manifest, and clearly that's gone for good.

by Anonymousreply 1502/22/2021

The only thing I watch is Brooklyn Nine Nine, which is sadly ending. It had lost a bit of steam anyway from the first few years. And yes, r11. I do NOT get the This is Us love. Totally manipulated drama , and DEPRESSING.

by Anonymousreply 1602/22/2021

OMG, Mom is ending in May after eight seasons. Why???!

by Anonymousreply 1702/22/2021

Because Anna Faris quit the show.

by Anonymousreply 1802/22/2021

R3 They can't cancel it. That would mean admitting that making her black was a mistake.

by Anonymousreply 1902/22/2021

I suspect I am not the only DLer who hasn't watched network TV in a few years and is completely unaware of what's on now.

Crazy how two completely different worlds--streaming and broadcast have emerged

It's not a snob thing, I just like being able to watch on my own schedule and would rather binge something like The Crown than anything on broadcast.

by Anonymousreply 2002/22/2021

Looking at those lists of current network shows feels like walking into a Blockbuster store in 2013 or so; i.e. mostly sad.

by Anonymousreply 2102/22/2021

It really looks like networks are calling a mulligan this year. Covid has affected too many things. There are barely any new shows premiering next season, assuming because producing new shows under covid restrictions has been a pain in the ass. They've renewed every show except a few, which had already been announced were ending (Brooklyn Nine Nine). No "shocking" cancellations. Not surprised by any of this.

by Anonymousreply 2202/22/2021

Of course, CW is renewing their superhero shows. They paid a lot of money for licensing these comic book franchises. They will milk them as long they can keep these rights.

by Anonymousreply 2302/22/2021

Has the fate of "Young Sheldon" been decided yet? It's the only network show I watch, mostly because of Meemaw (Annie Potts).

Are all those shows really on the air? Wow.

Can't wait for the debut of IRS: Charlotte!

Bassett is approaching mummification.

R3 get over it. CW does not care about live ratings.

R19 except it wasn't. Stay bitter, Ruby.

What the hell is Cult? Is it a show?

by Anonymousreply 3102/27/2021

Is it just me or is literally everything on CBS exactly the same show with a slightly different?

And what's with;

Chicago Fire: renewed for seasons 10 and 11

Chicago Med: renewed for seasons seven and eight

Chicago PD: renewed for seasons nine and 10

Why not also;

Chicago Gas Station Chicago Home Depot Chicago Tow Trucks...

by Anonymousreply 3202/27/2021

I guess I haven’t thought about it before, but I really don’t watch any major network scripted shows anymore. Gave up on This Is Us, all the CW shows, the ABC comedies. In fact, I think the only network shows I watch are Survivor and the Jane Lynch game shows.

by Anonymousreply 3302/27/2021

R31 yes, it's a show. Was cancelled after one season.

SPEAKING OF CRAP TV (what do i expect from MTV of course! i know! i know) what is up with their show "FLORIBAMA"????

and here i thought that jersey shore crap was a waste!..

the ONLY reason i have ever ever ever watched this show is for that hunk body of jeremiah.... that's it! on the other hand, i think to myself, who watches this show and really watches this crap for EVERYTHING and EVERYTHING ELSE that goes on?

granted, i'm a old fart, but i think "my GOD these people are utter trash!" is that how people their age actually act????" and yet they think they are so "cool"?! literally uneducated, utter trash, drinking, barfing, countless idiotic behavior both mentally ill and childish and so on and so this crap what MTV is happy putting out because people actually watch it? guess so since it's been going on for like 3 or 4 seasons now i think..

shameful! talk about rotting the brains of people this age group and a total waste of electricity! how far and how low can MTV GO in the near or distant future! by the way, why do they even CALL themselves "MTV"... NO MUSIC IS PLAYED THERE!.. for years now!

What is the point of this post...everything listed is "awaiting word" of renewal or cancellation?

by Anonymousreply 3602/28/2021

r32 Have you not heard of a little franchise called "Law and Order?"
