2006 Cancelled Shows: Not Many Surprises from FOX

After what one could call FOX’s most successful seasons in its history, there are very few cancellations to report. FOX’s schedule will remain the same for the most part and borderline shows (ratings-wise) like The OC, The Loop and The War at Home have received renewal notices. The few shows that were cancelled (either this week or earlier) include:

Bernie MacArrested Development - Critics loved it but few people watched. Read more information here.

The Bernie Mac Show – After five seasons and 104 episodes, this comedy aired its last original episode on April 14, 2006.

Free Ride – This partially-improved sitcom aired the last of its six episodes on April 9, 2006.

Head Cases – The Chris O’Donnell comedy was one of the first fatalities of the 2005-06 season.

Killer Instinct – This San Francisco-based crime thriller aired episode #13 (of 14 produced) in March of 2006 and hasn’t been seen since.

Kitchen Confidential – The off-beat Bradley Cooper comedy didn’t take off as expected and has been off the air since January 2006.

Malcolm in the Middle – The series finale aired on May 14, 2006. Click here for coverage.

Reunion – A much loved and popular series did not make it through its first season. For more information on the killer’s identity and unreleased episode details, go here.

Skating with Celebrities – This Dancing with the Stars “inspired” show never took off.

Stacked – The Pamela Anderson & Christopher Lloyd bookstore comedy has been off the air since January 2006. Episodes 15-17 have been produced but are unaired.

That ’70s Show – The series finale airs tonight with the return of Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher). Stay tuned for a recap.

Unan1mous – This odd “reality” game show has been almost unanimously disliked by critics and won’t be returning.

American Idol, 24, and King of the Hill will not return until early 2007, following the NFL Season. TV Series Finale home page

What A SHAME,truly a miscarriage of wholesome entertainment. How can anyone, more specifically (FOX) cancel ‘THE BERNIE MAC SHOW”, when it was full of ethincal value, full circle. We as “VIEWERS” should ban together and cancel “FOX”, for being stuck on complete stupidity. albeit of having the decency to at least a proper burial, don’t you think this really pisses off “AMERICA”. BRING THE BERNIE MAC SHOW BACK, AMERICA DEMAND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Truely a shame! I and many of my co-workers really enjoyed the Bernie Mac show and all the cast members who made it what it was. So far Fox the fall and ’07 season for Fox has nothing even interesting to watch. House is not as interesting as it was the first season and Bones has never really taken off as it should have. Sunday night sucks outloud on Fox!!! All of the shows are bad. Not even the Simpsons need to be on anymore.

Please bring back The Bernie Mac Show. If Fox don’t wnat the show anymore Bernie Mack needs to go to the UPN network. He would get excellent rating.

If Bernie Mac is gone, then I KNOW there is No way that American Dad is coming back. I don’t think that the Mac Man ever got the respect he was due. He was flipped flopped all over the schedule. Fox is going to lose some viewers behind this, but maybe they don’t really want our ratings any way. (Just a little something to make you say “hmmmmmmm”).

This show was great. Oprah, Cathy Hughes, Tavis were are you at? Put this show somewhere where all can enjoy it. “Girlfriends” might be next to go.
