Matthew Perry’s ‘Go On’ won’t

TV-NBC Sneak PreviewsThe networks will announce all of their new lineups for the 2013-2014 season starting Sunday with NBC. But, the Associated Press already is reporting a few of the changes for the Peacock Network.

It looks like Matthew Perry just can’t find the long-running success he had on “Friends” as his “Go On” has been canceled after one year. The cancelation follows one-year runs for Perry’s “Mr. Sunshine” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.”

During my interview with John Cho on Wednesday for the upcoming “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the actor who plays Sulu said he had not heard about the fate of “Go On,” where he was a series regular.

NBC also is killing ‘Whitney” and “Rock Center with Brian Williams.”

It looks like it was Whitney Cummings that the network didn’t like about “Whitney.” Chris D’Elia, who co-starred on “Whitney,” will get a new series where he plays a ladies man who has lots of dating tips.

There also will be a new action drama from producer Dick Wolf called “Chicago PD.”

The weirdest addition is an updated version of “Ironside” with Blair Underwood playing the paralyzed lawman who uses a wheelchair. Raymond Burr originally played the role. Remakes of “V,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Dragnet” and “Knight Rider” have not been successful.

The network’s entire fall schedule will be unveiled Sunday. FOX will announce its fall lineup on Monday.
