Well, wonder no more. Here’s a list of all of the regular ABC series that have aired (or are expected to air) during the 2011-12 season (now roughly September 2011 – August 2012).

    On the other hand, happy to know that Revenge, Once Upon a Time made it to season 2, but wondering about Homeland? Will there be season 2? I hope!

  2. Sandra Konechny says

  3. nikki mitchell says

    I just wanted to say i am very upset that ur network would cancel a show that my kids and i watched every time it came on………Missing was a great show!!!!!! I have all the eposides saved on my dvr!!!! Its always the shows that are wonderful that get canceled and the stupid one stay on T.V!!!!!!

    • Nikki says

      So sad to hear the cancellation of Missing… I love Ashley Judd and Sean Bean, wish you could do something. It was a great show!

  4. carol says

    Love Duets show!!!!!!!! Hope they renew it!! All the stars are great. Especially Love Kelly Clarkson. She’s spunky, and Very authentic.

  5. Gil says

    Expedition Impossible should have been renewed!!! An actual entertaining show that involved real people and a variety of challenges. So many other shows are so terrible, shows like Rookie Blue and Wife Swap (the list goes on and on) are complete crap.

  6. Mike says

    I liked Missing and Awake was alright! The River was utter shite and deserved to be cancelled! The rest I couldn’t care less about mostly rubbish shows

  7. Cheryl says

    I loved Missing. Great suspence. Oh well, the network can just keep all those other stupid programs. CBS isn’t any better, nor is NBC. Harrys’s Law is gone so is Awake, and Unforgottable. To bad. I’ll rent videos in stead.

    The revolution was the dumbest show out there. You’re probably the only one who actually would like it back for a 2nd season. Abc cancelled one of the eat soap operas for that stupid useless show. It proves that the people at abc have no clue what thy are doing. Take your heads out if your asses people of abc.

    The Finder was an Original thought out show and was very fun to watch. When you move a show around and continually have gaps of 2-3 weeks between shows, of course the ratings go down. Fox did the same thing to Human Target. You had to really look for it because of the baseball, basketball, or football seasons. It wasn’t a copycat show. It was very new ,creative show. Too bad Fox doesn’t see a good show when it comes along. Why not keep a show following Bones or before Bones. CBS did it with NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles and it has been a successful move.

    Please reinstate The Revolution. If you have to put on soap operas or that Katie Curic show please consider moving The Revolution to a different time slot – like 11 a.m.cst. That show is very informative, interesting and entertaining.

  11. JennaLee says

    I seriously just don’t know what is wrong with people.. they watch stupid shows like the New Girl but they cancel The Finder and Pan Am ! Good shows that I start to like get canceled…really pisses me off!
