Though the FOX network has fewer primetime hours to fill than other networks (15 vs. 22 hours), they’ve certainly burned through their share of TV series. Here are the ones that won’t be back for the 2007-08 season:
Drive – The Nathan Fillion series was pulled after four episodes. The remaining two will air on July 4th. Unfortunately, the road race won’t be completed.
Happy Hour – Fox aired three episodes in September and one episode in November before pulling it. FOX has said that 13 episodes have been completed and may be released on DVD at some point.
Justice – The courtroom drama was pulled and returned to primetime several times in 2006. Of the 13 episodes produced, 12 have aired in the United States. It won’t be coming back.
The Loop – The sitcom was given a 13-episode second season order but it was then reduced. The return was also delayed until June 10, 2007. It won’t return for a third season.
The O.C. – The network cancelled the drama series back in early January and the last episode was completed on February 2nd. The series finale aired on February 22, 2007.
The Rich List – This game show was cancelled after just one episode. The single episode aired on November 2, 2006 and was cancelled along with Happy Hour.
Standoff – The drama is expected to return on June 8th after a six month hiatus. There are eight unaired episodes from the first season. There won’t be a second year.
Vanished – Fox pulled their mystery serial drama after nine episodes. It was supposed to return but they opted to bring back Justice instead. The remaining four episodes were released online but few viewers felt satisfied with the storyline’s rushed resolution.
The War at Home – The family sitcom ended its two year run on April 22, 2007 after 44 episodes. There won’t be a third season.
The Wedding Bells – The David E. Kelly series was pulled after five episodes. Production was shut down after the seventh was completed. The two remaining episodes aren’t expected to air.
The Winner – Six episodes of the sitcom were produced and all aired to low ratings. The series won’t be returning.
Returning series include: 24 (renewed for two seasons), American Dad, American Idol, America’s Most Wanted, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Bones, Cops, Family Guy, House, King of the Hill, MADtv, Prison Break, The Simpsons, Talkshow with Spike Feresten, and ‘Til Death.
Though Nanny 911 and Trading Spouses are not included on the Fall or midseason schedules, FOX has included them on their list of returning shows. Stay tuned!
I know this is from 2010, but King Of The Hill was one of the greatest shows.
F*** those morons. How could they cancel the war at home? I haven’t seen such a good tv series in … well never it’s my favorite so far….
What on the single episode of “The Rich List”?
@Pikachu: It’s a game show.
Life on Mars is a great show…..one to look forward to ! Why cancel it to put awful shows like Better Ofted or stuff likr that !? Friday night has nothing on worth viewing .
Put Life on Mars on there ! All the good shows get canceled….pretty soon there will only be crap to watch and we may as well throw the TV out !
War At Home was such a good show.
Once again the execs more a show to a bad time slot, and they act all surprised when its ratings drop.
There was NOTHING WRONG with War At Home. There is, however, lots wrong with Fox’s execs.
I agree War at home was just as great as Family Guy other than its by real people. And now I hear that they will be hosting a spin off of Cleveland from Family Guy. Yeah… Let’s cancel one series that was on prime time line up for a sure fire failure. At least if you are going to do a spin off going with Family Guy, Quamire at least.
Shame on you, FOX! Canceling The War at Home was a huge mistake. So many fans….I laughed at every single episode I watched. Every second sentence made me smile. If you don’t bring it back…shame on you.
Can’t believe there won’t be a third series of War at Home! That’s so stupid.
I’ve been looking for a 3rd season of The War At Home. and we are disappointed to read that FOX cancelled the show. Why do networks always cancel shows that we like…
you would think fox would learn from their mistakes, at least run a show for at least one season, bring back drive and justice!!!
