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.

    Highly dissapointed CBS cancelled The Class! I was looking forward to the new season, especially from the way they ended in the season finale.

    Closer to Home was one of the clean drama shows a family could watch and Jericho at least made sense.
    Why would CBS drop these and keep a weird show like Ghost Whispher and a dance show that dresses with so little on it show be R rated. I would be ashamed to watch it the way they are dressed. I hadn’t watched The Class but sounds like a lot of people liked that show too. Jerico was the most talked about show on TV. It was even mentioned on the news shows as being the show most people were waiting on to see come back on. CBS you blew it once again. I can rent DVD’s cheaper monthly than I can pay for rental for TV cable. I can get news on internet, I don’t want to get intrested in any more shows and have them snatched out from under me with out them ending.

    Why would you get rid of The Class? It was my favorite show!! I hope someone picks it up–Please bring it back. It was the best new comedy.

    I am really disappointed that the Class has been canceled. It was one of the shows that I was really looking forward to this Fall. The show was fresh and funny with a fantastic cast. The plug was pulled just as everyone was hitting their strides. The show is far better than Rules of Engagement. There are some good actors on Rules, but overall, it’s a real snore with few true laughs or desire to really care about the characters. If given the choice between the two, I’m afraid that CBS picked the wrong show. Sad…

    I LOVED The Class. It was the funniest show on TV. I won’t be watching any of the other comedies since they pulled The Class. That just sucks. I also loved Close to Home. Two great shows … gone. I’ll have to find another network to watch.

    I can’t BELIEVE “The Class” isn’t on anymore! This was the funniest sitcom since “Friends” and given a bit more time, could have been a huge hit. I think NBC should snap it up.

  11. Glenn says

    How can they cancel the class and not Two and a Half men? THAT show is crap!

    Also there’s like 3 CSI shows (which as far as I’m concerned are all the same show) not to mention all the copy cats (cold case, ncis, etc)

    At least they’re bringing back How I met your mother.

    i’m so happy that Ghost Whisperer is staying what a powerful show. They keep every episode interesting. I’m really sorry fans of Jericho but that show was a disaster. I really didn’t get the meaning of that show and so saying that I truely agree with CBS decision. Remember this is just my opinion so please don’t get angry about my thoughts. But for yall diehard fans of Jericho I’m SORRY.
