CANCELLATION ALERT: The Millers
The Millers is the first veteran series to get yanked this year. I think we'll see a few things happen now. CBS originally planned to move The Millers back to Thursdays in January but obviously that won't happen. I think Mom will stay right where it is and Mike & Molly will come back to Monday, either at 8pm (shifting 2 Broke Girls back a half hour) or the 8:30pm slot. Another option is the new version of The Odd Couple, but I think CBS will save that for later in the season (it seems very unlikely The McCarthys will stay all year). The Millers is scheduled to air on Monday still and has some episodes in the can, but CBS might burn them off on Saturdays. Finally, Sean Hayes is becoming quite the show killer. He had a recurring role on Smash's ill-fated sophomore season. Then he bombed in his own NBC show, Sean Saves the World last year. Then he joined The Millers for season two and this happens.
