"FlashForward," "Scrubs" Are Cancelled: Which Shows Are Returning?

The fate of our favorite TV shows is being finalized, with ABC recently announcing the (surprising?) cut of two of their shows.

FlashForward, which is only in its first season, got axed due to low ratings. I have to say, I wasn't expecting that one. I personally thought it was a pretty good show. It had what I like to call the "Lost factor" in that if you missed one episode, you had no idea what the heck was going on. Worked for Lost, but apparently didn't work for them.

ABC also cut Scrubs, which makes me sad. I didn't tune in on a regular basis, but if an episode happened to be on, I'd watch it and laugh at Zach Braff's character's daydreams. 

Rumors are slowly popping up that a couple of favorites may be cancelled, and if it turns out to be true, it's going piss a lot of people off. The first being Law & Order (let the protests begin) and the second is Supernatural. Last night's episode has people wondering if it was the season finale or the series finale.

Other shows that got cut or are ending:

  • Better Off Ted
  • Romantically Challenged (boy, that didn't last long)
  • 24
  • Dollhouse
  • Eastwick
  • Hank
  • Lost (*sniff sniff*)
  • 'Til Death
  • Ugly Betty

Shows that were saved include:

  • V 
  • Desperate Housewives 
  • Grey's Anatomy (I used to love this show, but I'm really ready to see it come to an end)  
  • Private Practice
  • 30 Rock
  • Brothers & Sisters
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Cougar Town
  • Friday Night Lights
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • The Middle
  • Two and a Half Men (with disgusting Charlie Sheen)
  • Glee
  • Modern Family
  • The Office
  • The Vampire Diaries

Check out the full list on TV Guide's website to see if your show made the cut for another year.

Are your favorites getting renewed? Which ones are you sad to see go?

I really liked FlashForward - I'm sad to see it go.  Although I would never tell anyone (hee hee) I really like Vampire Diaries - everyone needs one campy show! haha

I'm super bummed on Scrubs. I love Zach Braff. Also, I see in the not looking good column is Mercy and Trauma. I LOVED those shows and I really hope they get renewed for next year!

I love Flash Forward. If there is any execs for ABC that read this, PLEASE keep that show. I love Mercy as well. It always amazes me the crap that DOES stay on air and the good shows that get cancelled.

Do you people not watch TV anymore? If you are going to comment about Scrubs then you should know that its been about a year since Zach Braff has not been a regular cast member. The show hadn't been "cancelled" till now but it was over since this season began, with all but two original cast members. The show that was cancelled was NOT Scrubs, nothing close to it, Scrubs "unofficially" ended when their 8th season ended.


Oh and I can't believe they are cancelling FlashForward and not V..... grinds my gears...

Carey... Carey2006

I heard V and Law & Order are both being canceled as well.

I wish they would bring back Three Rivers!!!! I'll never know if they've kept mine until I turn on the TV & it's there......GRRRR!

I do like these programs tho.......

  • Desperate Housewives 

  • Brothers & Sisters

  • The Big Bang Theory

  • Two and a Half Men

Supernatural from the CW is NOT being cancelled. It's being renewed for a sixth season, according TVGuide.com (link below).

Sorry, but I trust TV Guide more than this unknown site. Please research extensively before writing that a show is being cancelled when it's NOT. Thanks

Jam, that link is from Feb. A lot changes in a few months.

As for Flash Forward, it was an interesting concept, which started off with a lot of promise but has gone downhill quickly.

Carey2006 V has not been cancelled it will be return in the fall but law order has. I so mad they are cancelling flash forward because it was a really good show and they also cancelled happy town too but I just glad that they still have V, law and order suv, vampiries daries, and csi.
