With upfronts less than a week away, the networks are starting to make some noise with pickups (more on that in the next post to come) and cancellations. Tonight, FOX cancelled five series - three freshmen, one sophomore, and one third year show (a "junior" I suppose).
I didn't stick with any of these shows despite giving them all a try so none of these cancellations are devastating to me. Breaking In had promise but got caught up in its own quirkiness. The Chicago Code had real promise but couldn't deliver. Lie to Me was ok but nothing special. With this news, all scripted shows are accounted for in one way or another as FOX has really cleared out some of its dead weight. American Idol, Million Dollar Money Drop, Kitchen Nightmares, Cops, and America's Most Wanted are the only shows not officially renewed or cancelled but are certain or likely to come back in one way or another.
