What will be the NEXT Casualty of the Fall 2012 Season?

post #1 of 115
Thread Starter 
Usually by now we have an idea of what will be the first show to bite the bullet in the fall, but perhaps due to the slow roll out of new shows we haven't got there yet. So, what is your vote for the first, second and third causalities?

There are shows I've sampled and will not be watching, but none are doing terribly bad in the ratings. I wont be watching Elementary, 666, and Neighbors going forward.

I'm typically pretty good at this and my vote for one's that I've seen is Neighbors...See Ya!

Strictly based on my own viewing preferences, but I'd like to see them get rid of "Go On." As much as I like Perry, this show was pretty lousy. Watched the first two episodes and just couldn't stand his character.

'666 Park Avenue' is the one that's disappointed me the most. Lots of high dollar talent, Big Four budget and nothing scary, or even relatively creepy, so far. Maybe scary just can't be done on TV, or can't be done on broadcast TV. Anyway, the ratings, south of 6 million/week, will probably seal its doom.

The one I'm hoping makes it is 'Last Resort'. I like big swings for the fences with serialized dramas. Most of them fail; maybe this one will succeed. 'Revolution' I'm not terribly excited about, but I'm glad its on the schedule and doing fairly well.

Couldn't watch more that 6 minutes of "Neighbors". May be the dumbest show ever put on television.

I agree about Neighbors -- but it just got a 3 episode order according to the Hot off the Press thread....

You haven't been around long, have you?

Cop Rock?
My Mother The Car??
The Chevy Chase Show????
Manimal???????????

And that's just off the top of my head.

That Animal practice show for sure, Revolution comes to mind, even if it had big ratings, it's just another Terra Nova IMO>..

Guys with Kids, that concept has been milked to death already..

Well, it's still early, but Mob Doctor is the show with the worst ratings and greatest ratings drop.

Ever since 2 1/2 Men became a hit, I realized my Crapidar must be faulty. But that doesn't stop me from making predictions.

I made it through one entire episode of Neighbors. The idea had potential, too bad the writing didn't.
Never made it to 666, and after reading this thread, I probably never will

As far as Go On, which Matthew Perry character were you talking about? The one where he plays Chandler in a 12 step program, the one where he plays Chandler in a sports arena, the one where he plays Chandler on Sunset Strip, or the one where he plays Chandler in an apartment building?

Yeah, after 2 1/2 Men, I can see Go On hanging on for the season.

I had high hopes for Last Resort after the first episode, but the second one started getting too close to the soap opera/love on an island genre. I'll keep watching for a few more though.

Actually, according to ismyshowcancelled.com, both Go On and Revolution have been picked up for full seasons.

Just to make this clear, it is a three script order only.

Hmm I actually kinda like Go On, glad I gave it a chance. Did not like his last sitcom at all.

It looks like NBC is holding back Community to replace either Guys with Kids or Animal Practice. I'd pick one or the other to be the first cancelled show.

If Vegas or Elementary were on any network but CBS, they'd probably be gone within a month. But since they are on CBS they'll probably be around for 5+ years. Excellent casts with bland bland bland writing.

Since Last Resort is the only network drama that I've actually liked so far, it will probably get the axe soon.

If I were to place a bet, this would be my pick, as well. However, it will be a tight finish between Mob Doctor and The Neighbors.

Revolution might make it through the season, but won't be picked up to return. I predict the same for Vegas and 666.

I mentioned to my wife about 666 that I didn't understand why they didn't make it scary. For instance, when the girl walks through the wall with the hidden door...why was the scene so brightly lit? Make it dark with only a spot from a flashlight. Have things slightly moving in the dark making creepy noises. That would have made the scene far more effective. As it is it's weak sauce.

Made in Jersey
post #17 of 115
CBS has pulled the plug on Made In Jersey. Crap. mad.gif I liked that series.
post #18 of 115
Well, not officially canned, but Made In Jersey has been pulled from the schedule.
post #19 of 115
That is paramount to death. It is a casualty of the 2012 season.

So, who won the pool?

(edited to fix really poor spelling...)

Saw Perry on Ellen yesterday, he said they have been picked up for a FULL season.

Apparently, I didn't fix it in time.

But, only one won, right? wink.gif

The Neighbors has been given further script orders. that's not exactly like ordering additional episodes, but it's far from being pulled from the schedule. Of course, THAT could still happen! rolleyes.gif

I really thought Mob Doctor was going to be the first once cancelled.
post #28 of 115
I've only seen these new shows:

Ben and Kate - mildly amusing, with attractive and likeable actors, it involves a lot more mugging and less actual witty writing (in contrast to Raising Hope, which it follows);
Mindy Kaling - tried one episode, but it's too bland and mediocre;
Last Resort - sorta liked the first episode, barely made it through the 2nd one;
Neighbors - couldn't even last one episode, they repeated the same "watching television on the telephone" joke 4 times in less than a minute, the only thing that caught my interest was when the alien wife put on a skintight gold dress.

You mean to be cancelled next? Because the first cancellation has already happened...
