2007 Cancelled Shows: CW Drops Old Favorites

Veronica Mars hangs onIt’s been an interesting freshman year for the new CW. The network hasn’t really grown its audience but that’s not surprising considering almost all of the season’s shows came from either WB or UPN. They’re dumping most of them this time around. Here’s a recap of won’t be back for the CW’s 2007-08 season:

All of Us The sitcom co-created by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith has been dropped after four seasons and 88 episodes. The finale aired on Monday night.

Gilmore Girls – Though the network wanted to bring the drama back for an eighth season, an agreement couldn’t be reached with the series’ two female leads. The last episode aired on Tuesday night.

Reba – The Reba McEntire sitcom was given a reprieve last year and returned for 13 episodes this season. Despite being one of the highest rated shows on the network, it was cancelled. The last episode aired on February 18, 2007.

Runaway – The drama about a family on the run starred Donnie Wahlberg and was pulled after just three episodes. Three other episodes were reportedly completed but went unaired.

7th Heaven – The series was rescued from cancellation last season after the “final episode” aired. The show’s 11th season disappointed many and the ratings fell. The final episode aired last Sunday.

Veronica Mars – After three seasons, the gal detective series is officially canceled. But CW’s Dawn Ostroff is talking with Mars creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell about possibly doing a new series for the network. It’s unclear if the new show would relate to Mars. The deadline for deciding on a Veronica Mars-related series would reportedly be June 15, 2007.

Returning series include: America’s Next Top Model, Beauty and the Geek, Everybody Hates Chris, The Game, Girlfriends, Smallville, Supernatural, and Friday Night Smackdown.

One Tree Hill and Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, will return mid-season (January or earlier). Hill will be reworked and set four years into the future, post-college. CW will post journal entries from the characters that will bring viewers up to date until the series returns. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

There was this show about this girl who was a female writer/like something dealing with writing and she was going to do it based on this ladies real life, but i have not a clue what it is called. Was there a show kind of like this on this channel?

@Desi: I’m not sure what you’re thinking of. How long ago was it on? Could it possibly be “the Return of Jezebel James”? It ran for a few episodes on FOX. http://tvseriesfinale.com/tv-show/tag/the-return-of-jezebel-james/

I AM SERIOUSLY DEPRESSED NOW THAT I CANT COME HOMEN AFTER A LONG HARD DAY OF WORK ON MONDAY NIGHT TO WATCH ALL OF US. THAT WAS MY FAVORITE SHOW. IT ACTUALLY GAVE ME HOPE THAT BLACK SITCOMS WERE DEFINATELY ON THE UP AND UP. IT ALSO HELPED ME DEAL WITH THE FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DONT CONSIDER AFRICAN AMERICANS TO BE HARD WORKERS. ALL OF US, EVE, ONE ON ONE, CUTS, GIRLFRIENDS, THE GAME AND HALF AND HALF ALL DEPICTED BLACK AMERICANS DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST: WORK HARD AS HELL AND NOT GET THE PROPER RESPECT THEY DESERVE.

RIP ALL OF US…I MISS YOU SO MUCH,….
