Here’s a breakdown on the newest developments:
ABC: Network has canceled Mr. Sunshine (Matthew Perry), Off the Map, Better With You, Detroit 1-8-7 (Michael Imperioli), and No Ordinary Family (Michael Chiklis). Although no surprise, fans were hoping that Mr. Sunshine and NOF would’ve been better hits for Perry and Chiklis, and while Chiklis may get one more chance on cable again, it seems like Perry’s star power has been dead since Friends ended.
However, there is good news for fans of the ABC network as they have renewed frosh series Body of Proof that stars Dana Delaney. While the show is nowhere near the hit they thought it would be, they aren’t as bad as the previously mentioned canceled series. Also picked up is a third season of the reality show Shark Tank, where inventors pitch their ideas to investors.
NBC: The Peacock network has canceled frosh comedy Outsourced. While the series had strong ratings when it aired behind The Office, they plummeted when the show was moved to 10:30 PM.
