The networks hyped them for weeks and months, getting us so excited about the new shows of the 2006 – 2007 television season. Millions of viewers dutifully tuned in and quickly became attached to the new sitcoms and ongoing dramatic series.
Then the networks, not having the patience to let some of the new series develop a larger audience, pulled over a dozen of the new shows after only a handful of episodes. Most will never be seen on primetime television again.
|CBS’ Smith was the first series of the new season to be cancelled.||Fortunately for fans of Kidnapped, NBC released the final episodes online.|
|Runaway, starring Donnie Wahlberg, only aired for a few episodes on the CW network.||ABC’s Day Break was pulled after six episodes? Will fans ever see the rest?|
|The Fox sitcom Happy Hour on Fox had a small but loyal following.||The cancellation of NBC’s Twenty Good Years didn’t come as a huge surprise to many.|
|Fox concluded Vanished online but few were satisfied with the conclusion.||Victor Garber starred in the legal drama Justice on Fox.|
|ABC’s drama about bank hostages, The Nine may return to ABC.||Six Degrees was supposed to return to ABC but it’s looking doubtful at best.|
|ABC gave Help Me Help You nine episodes to catch on but most viewers weren’t interested.||Even Boston Legal’s William Shatner couldn’t save ABC’s Show Me the Money.|
|Brought in to replace Smith, 3 Lbs. lasted three episodes on CBS.||Big Day on ABC hasn’t been cancelled but is it next?|
