Last night, the networks pulled the plug on 12 shows, with the promise of more to come. The good news is, there couldn’t possibly be any shows left to cancel that anyone could possibly give a damn about. The bad news? Two of last night’s cancellations stung.
Those two? Agent Carter and The Grinder, the latter of which was only one of two network sitcoms I still watched (black-ish is the other). That’s a damn shame, too, because Grinder was the only sitcom on the networks with any sense of absurdity. I’ll miss Fred Savage, too.
Agent Carter’s cancellation was expected, but for many, it doesn’t hurt any less. Hayley Atwell’s new drama, Conviction, however, has been picked up. Atwell deserves better than another courtroom drama.
The somewhat surprising cancellation was for Castle, which had not re-signed Stana Katic for a ninth season, though the series was expected to return for a shortened final season. Fillion probably should’ve at least pretended to fight for Katic when the network dropped her, because in this outcome, it doesn’t look good for him.
Also cancelled? The Muppets, Nashville, Grandfathered, Galavant, and a few other shows you’ve probably never heard of: Bordertown, Containment, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, CSI: Cyber, and The Family.
In better news, in case you missed it, CBS dropped Supergirl, which has been picked up by the CW.
