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

I am extremely upset that All of Us was cancelled, I don’t even watch TV that much but that was a real good show with it’s serious side as well as comedy. I will definetly miss it very much. It was a positive show.

All of Us shouldn’t have been cancelled or at least if they were going to cancel it, they should’ve ended it with more of a bang!

I wish that the network would not have cancelled a positive show like All of Us.

I cannot believe that One Tree Hill is jumping four years into the future. Sure, I agree that going to college and leaving tree hill is a ridiculous premise; but sometimes people are happier when a show exits on top…so The CW should definitely consider the options.

I am very upset that All of Us was cancelled I may not watch that channel ever again, now next they will be cancelling The Game, they should have cancelled Everybody Hates Chris because that is the most stupid show on the air, if they just wanted to cancel a black show…

I’m kind of upset that Reba is being cancelled, that was a really good show. Reba turned out to be such a nice actress, and her character was adorable~!
I’ll miss ‘em :/

Veronica Mars was, and always will be a great show. Wish they wouldn’t cancel it…

It seems with all of the shows being dropped, they’d have plenty of room to keep a brilliant show going, such as Veronica Mars. Honestly, if that was the last episode aired tonight, I will personally beat Dawn Ostroff with a wet noodle. That was not closure of any kind. Another season HAS to air. The story isn’t finished and it won’t be until all of the conflicts are resolved. They constantly advertised it as the season finale and if this really was the end, it would have been the SERIES finale. I certainly don’t think this is the end of VM. (I sure hope not)

I am really sorry to se VM go. It had great moment, but nothing could live up to the personal story archs of the first season that engaged viewers worldwide.
