I watch all the following and hate to see them cancelled. Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, Unforgettable, The Good Wife, all of the CSI’s and NCIS and NCIS LA and Person of Interest. With all these good shows getting the ax I can see that I won’t be seeing much shows on this Network. I guess its a good thing I have lots of books to read.

What are you talking about? The only ones that are probably going to get cancelled are Unforgettable, CSI: Miami, and CSI: NY. Maybe not the last one. But all of the others are already renewed for next season.

While I’m not too worried about the demise of CSI Miami, why would you cancel NY? Its a better show! Unfortunately how fans can keep up when you take it off the air then air it at a different time, no wonder ratings fall…..AND I’ll be bloody glad when reality shows disappear…..

I can’t believe it!!! I watch NCIS, NCIS LA, Blue Bloods, CSI, Person of Interest, and the Mentalist. For the money I pay for Satellite, I should just stick t0 reading books in the evening. Very little is left for entertainment for someone with tastes like mine. The library is a lot cheaper (free). I could save a lot of money!!!!!

Lorraine » I’m not sure why you’re upset. All of the shows you mentioned have been renewed.

I really hope the don’t cancel CSI NY. I hope that Rules of Engagement stays on long enough for Jeff and Audrey to have the baby. Also what do you think will happen to Two and a Half Men after Jake graduates.

Jim March 23, 2012 at 12:42 am

LONG LIVE NCIS!!!!!

why is TGW ending so early ? ending april 29?

Bethany March 22, 2012 at 10:10 pm

I thought Rules Of Engagement was canceled since they never air the show as advertized either. So this must be the last show then??? Don’t know why, I love this show.

Reply

Bethany March 22, 2012 at 10:06 pm

So is this the series finale of CSI NY??? That is my favorite of the 3, and yet it is never on when it says it will be, even when they advertize the show in the show before it. Grrrrrr
