What Happened in TV Last Night?
It seems as if all the major networks got together last night and decided to drop a bombshell on a bunch of devoted TV viewers.
FOX, ABC & CBS all announced cancellations of some major shows and others after only one season.
I saw a lot of disappointed people venting their anger towards ABC for cancelling the hit show Nashville (Hayden Panettiere & Connie Britton) after 4 seasons. According to Variety, May 25th, the season 4 finale will also be the series finale. Castle has also seen the end of its run after 8 seasons. However, it was previously announced that if Castle did return for a 9th season, two main characters would not be returning.
Other ABC cancellations: Agent Carter, Blood & Oil, The Family, Wicked City, Galavant, and The Muppets
Side note: The Real O’Neals got renewed for another season which is definitely worth watching. It’s hilarious!
Two beautiful men, in Hollywood, got their shows axed on the same day by FOX. Grandfathered starring John Stamos and Rob Lowe’s The Grinder. I was really surprised by the cancellations of these two shows. I thought they were both really funny. Both actors addressed the news.

Other FOX Cancellations: Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Life and Bordertown
After 16 years, CSI has come to an end on CBS. After two seasons, CSI: Cyber is being cancelled marking an end to the CSI franchise. Variety says that the “cyber” series never did as well (in the ratings) as its predecessors.
Supergirl, also on CBS, hasn’t been cancelled but will rather move to the CW network in the fall.
Other CBS Cancellations: The Good Wife, Person of Interest, Extant, Angel from Hell, and Under the Dome
NBC has yet to announce their cancellations but they are adding another “Chicago” show. Chicago: Justice will join “Fire,” “Med,” and “P.D.”
What show are you sad about being cancelled?
