Community is officially done. I never watched the show but fans should be satisfied that a program that never really got the support of the network as others did and ran on cult fumes lasted as long as it did. The show has nothing to be ashamed of.

With that said, it wouldn't shock me if Netflix got their hands on it.

I think it's pretty certain that either Netflix or another network picks it up for one last season.

"Revolution" and "Growing Up Fisher" (which actually was getting decent ratings) have also been cancelled.

On the plus side, "Hannibal" has been renewed.

It came down to About a boy, Growing up Fisher and Community. Community outran Fisher but had no more legs against Boy.

Netflix would likely be all over it for a final season. Maybe FXX but not sure 100%. Depends if they have space.

Growing Up Fisher was pretty good. I was so excited to see both Keller and Shillinger on TV at the same time in comedies, and now both are gone.  :'(

Can Netflix pick up Community since Hulu owns the digital rights to it?

You can add "Super Fun Night", "Mixology", "The Neighbors", "Trophy Wife" and "Suburgatory" to the heap. Oh, and "Last Man Standing" is likely getting renewed because there is still a demand for Tim Allen for some reason.

The Neighbors was better than it had any right to be. I found it to be a fun show. The entire cast was in on the joke and just having a good time. It probably would have worked better if it was on ABC Family instead of ABC.

They may have been in on the joke. But it was a bad joke. I caught a couple episodes because it played on my lunch break. Not a smirk to be had.

First season had a bit of an overhaul mid-season, losing the focus on the kids and increasing the focus on Miles and Monroe, which was good enough to get it the second season.

My wife liked Believe.  I wanted to like it because of Delroy Lindo, but no dice.  She'll be sad to hear that there is no more Bo.

It didn't help that the most relationship chemistry on the show was between the damn uncle and niece characters.

Nothing shocking there. The Crazy Ones started great but lagged out, plus it was way too expensive to keep it on the air. Bad Teacher came out soft and went softer. Hostages should have been a mini-series and nothing more. Intelligence had been done and by better people. I never saw a minute of Friends with Better Lives.

They kept the Mentalist for another season which surprised me and seems pointless. I gave up on it halfway through the last season. It resolved everything it needed to, there's no reason for it to keep going.

Supposedly Warner Bros pulled a Beauty and the Beast deal, putting tons of cash up and reducing the cost to CBS for a final season short order.

They also passed on How I met your father.

"Dracula" has been canceled. All I remember is that the first episode was so bad I couldn't finish watching it.

Update: It is getting a second season-it's just that it will be produced completely by Sky in the UK, and won't be airing in the U.S.

I watched 2 episodes of Dracula. I wanted to give it a shot since most pilots aren't very good, but it was just trash. It didn't help that Jonathan Rhys Meyers was probably doing the show fucked up. He had to have his pay held during production since he was using it for drugs at one point.

The only one of those I'm remotely sad about is The Crazy Ones. I actually liked that one. Coked up Robin Williams is truly the best Robin Williams.

Serious question: What are the major networks' television model? What is the point of canceling everything only to replace them with CSI spinoffs and reboots (Odd Couple?). I'm sure these shows are cheap as hell to make and will get decent ratings. The networks will be smiling with glee come Fall.

CBS did not pick up How I Met Your Dad after all. It's currently shopping other networks.

Also, Two and a Half Men is FINALLY ending after next season. How long has this show been on the air? Well, I was still in high school when it premiered and I graduated college 5 years ago. Yikes.

Reserving a spot in the 2014/2015 version of this thread for "Selfies", which I'm basing purely on the name.

I see for summer reruns, The Goldbergs is being given the Wednesday Modern Family lead in and post time slots. The commercial was unclear if that is the plan for the fall but not a bad idea.

FX shows "Chozen" and "Legit" are officially axed.

I enjoyed watching the first season of Legit on Netflix. I was actually just listening to Jim Jefferies on the Nerdist podcast today and he seemed pretty excited for the show's third season. Oops.

"Chozen" was a disaster from the get go. The previews didn't do it any favors, critics hated it and at the end of the day, it kinda sucked.

I honestly can't help but wonder how long FXX is going to last. Most of the newer shows that go there get poor ratings and get cancelled, and everything about reeks of a fiasco.

Don't know if it's technically a cancellation as her contract was not renewed but "Chelsea Lately" is ending after a seven year run.  Last episode is August 26

The Fox entertainment chairman resigned.  He is the one who was pushing to change the way they do tv with year round shorter seasons of higher quality (also known as how it should be) and fought to give second seasons to Enlisted and Almost Human.  Which he obviously lost.  And now left.  It's a shame because I think he's right about the direction of tv and he fought for quality shows that were not ratings hits.  Tv needs more like that not less.

This is what cable has over networks right now IMO.  People point to that they get away with more adult content...but watch hannibal and tell me that's the problem with networks.  What cable has is bolder creative direction that isn't a slave to the bottom line.  Everyone wants to do cbs numbers.  Well...I watch like 2 things on cbs...so I can't speak to the overall quality...but it doesn't really appeal to me.  Person of interest is p great though.

I don't know about quality but often a show that gets cancelled in May by CBS would have ratings that would get it renewed on NBC.

And if one were to watch only one CBS drama, Person of Interest should be it.

Never saw a listing for it. Of course, maybe it is just ending that show for him to step into The Late Late Show spot. Wouldn't bet on it but wouldn't be stunned.
