More network shows on chopping block

GCB.JPG There’s no official word on what CBS, ABC and the CW have planned for the 2012-2013 TV season, but here’s an unofficial look at what the networks will be dropping.

CBS canceled “How to Be a Gentleman” weeks after it launched. Also on the list to get the boot are “A Gifted Man,” “Rob,” “Unforgettable,” “NYC 22″ and veteran cop drama “CSI: Miami.” No word on the what’s happening with “Rules of Engagement.”

ABC dumped “Man Up!” and “Charlie’s Angels” a long time ago. “Pan Am” also didn’t take off for the network.

The surprise is that “GCB” won’t be back. It looked like the successor to “Desperate Housewives” but now both shows are gone.

Also leaving the lineup will be “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” “Work It,” “Missing” and “The River.” “Cougar Town” leaves ABC for new life on the cable channel TBS.

“H8R” died early for the CW and viewers knew this was the last season for “One Tree Hill.” Add to the departing list “The Secret Circle” and “Ringer.”

I absolutely love “GCB” & as a practicing “GCB” of over sixty years, it never failed to make me laugh. No blood & guts, just real-life scheming with a wink.

Lisa says:

Out of all those shows the only one I’ll miss is Rob.
