2007 Cancelled Shows: CBS Cancels Several Series

The Class has been canceledThe network’s still doing well so CBS is playing it safe once again this fall. The Tiffany network is introducing very few new shows this year and sticking with most of the old favorites. Here’s what won’t be back for the 2007-08 season:

Armed & Famous – The short-lived celebrity cop show was pulled from the air back in January. All existing episodes have been aired on VH1 or CBS and there won’t be any more.

The Class – This show was devoutly loved by its fans but they were too few in number. CBS is committed to one night of comedy which means four sitcom slots. CBS chose to try one new series and renew four others with higher ratings than The Class

Close to Home – This crime drama has been rumored to be in trouble for months and, unfortunately, the rumors were true. The final episode (#44) aired last Friday.

Jericho – The Skeet Ulrich drama about a small town following a nuclear disaster started off strong but lost viewers when it returned from hiatus. The series finale aired on May 9th, 2007. JerichoEpisodes are available via iTunes and from Amazon.com.

The King of Queens – The Kevin James sitcom ended its run on Monday night after nine seasons and 207 episodes. Over 13 million watched.

The cast of Jericho canceledSmith – The Ray Liotta series was the first to go after airing just three episodes. SmithAll seven episodes are available on iTunes and Amazon.com.

3 lbs – The Stanley Tucci medical drama replaced Smith and lasted just three episodes. Tucci has been cast in a regular role on NBC’s ER however. All eight episodes are available via Amazon.com

Waterfront – Remember this one? The drama starring Joe Pantoliano as a colorful mayor in Providence, R.I.? Five episodes were completed but it was canned before even one episode aired. Talk about a fast cancellation…

Returning series are: Cold Case, Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, Ghost Whisperer, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS, Numb3rs, Rules of Engagement, Shark, 60 Minutes, Survivor, Two and a Half Men, The Unit and Without a Trace.

    Please DO NO cancel CANE. This is a wonderful and ientertaining series. Don’t leave us hanging. We love the whole family concept. Through good and bad – still a family.
    It has it all. So true to real life. (not like Jericho – come on!!)

    Will the class be back for a new season now that the writters strike is over? The class was by far the best comedy i’ve seen in years, bring it back

    Editor: Sorry, no. The show was cancelled in May 2007.

    What is going on with all CSI, Ghost Whisper and the Womans club. I’m a big fan of all the mention shows, but I have not see any new episodes.

    Editor: They haven’t been cancelled but, because the writers are on strike, show production has shut down. Hopefully the strike will be resolved soon so that new episodes can be made.

    So is moonlight cancelled or not? someone please tell meee!!!!!

    OH AND BY THE WAY MOONLIGHT ROCKS AND ANYONE WHO THINKS NOT IS A SERIOUS DUMBY

    Editor: No, it’s not cancelled. CBS has just run out of new episodes because of the writers strike.

    I am really praying that CANE will return. Cane was the best show I have seen in awhile. Please bring it back!!!
    My coworkers and I would watch and talk about it the next day. The whole cast were wonderful.

    How could you just cancel CLOSE TO HOME???? THAT’S A BAD OPTION! THat was one of my favourite shows. My mom and I enjoyed that show a lot! Somehow, sometimes I learn from that show…don’t know why.. It’s better to delete Survivor, Two and a half man. Those shows sucks!

  7. Laura says

    I agree with most… The Class was one of the best shows I have watched. I was crushed when it did not return. I personally can NOT get into the Big Bang Theory or Rules of Engagement. Bring back The Class. Plus I have become a BIG FAN of Cane and now worried it will be another goner. With all these stupid reality shows taking over why even watch tv.

    one night of comedy????when did CSI become a comedy….
    the show that should’ve been trashed is Rules of Engagement..

  9. LINDA & BILLY WICKE ODESSA,TEXAS says

    ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS PUT ON IN YEARS !! IN A SOCIETY WHERE MURDER IS STARTING TO BE AN EVERY DAY THING, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO KEEP SHOWS ON THAT ARE TEACHING PEOPLE HOW NOT TO GET CAUGHT AND GLORIFY CRIME !! “JERICHO” WAS A SHOW THAT WE AS A COUPLE, WOULD SIT DOWN EVERY WEDNESDAY AND WATCH. WE HAD HARDLY EVER WATCHED TV TOGETHER UNTIL “JERICHO” CAME ON. MAYBE IF IT WAS NAMED “CSI-JERICHO” IT WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN CANCELED !! NOW “CANE” IS ON CBS AND A MURDERER IS THE MAIN CHARACTER … IMAGINE THAT !! ANOTHER MURDER SHOW !! WRONG MOVE CBS !! BRING BACK “JERICHO” !! ASAP CBS !!

    I would just like to say that the ” Big Bang Theory” is not a good show. 8:00pm I was in my chair and ready for The Class, New…Christine, Rules of Engagement, Two and a Half Men. Now I ain’t got sh*t to watch on tv. Good thing I got the game lounge on DirectTV. For my Monday nights. I would Love it if you would put this line up back on.

    What in the world are you thinking cancelling The Class??? Horrible decision by CBS! You need to bring this show back! Look how many people replied about this show. What will it take to get this show back?

    Attn: CEO, CFO, CBS Executives

    Your customers are requesting a product that you introduced to us. Obviously, we are asking that you give “The Class” a second chance. The initial objective in entertainment should be entertaining. It is unfortunate, that the bottom line is usually more important than anything else. I loved watching the show because it made me laugh and there is nothing better than laughing to shake off a long day of hard work. What do you think?

    Sincerely, One of your Customers

    Dear CBS TV Productions,

    I hated to see “Close to Home” was canceled. It was a great show and by far way better than that ridiculous show “Moonlight” That is just pure garbage! You had some real good shows such as “JAG” but you have steadily been going downhill since.

    Don’t you guys ever watch the “History Channel”? I bet you could come up with some really good story lines.
