Prison Break Season 5??
The fourth week of our Renew/Cancel Indexfinds the shows most likely to be cancelled for each of the broadcast networks the same as they were last week:Easy Money (CW), Life (NBC), The Ex List (CBS), Pushing Daisies (ABC) and â€˜Til Death (Fox).
Other shows in the greatest danger are NBC’s just premiered Crusoe, CBS’sThe New Adventures of Old Christine, and CBS’sGary Unmarried.
On the other hand, because either their own results are improving or their network results are slipping (it doesn’t matter which since it’s the show’s relative performance that matters), several shows moved from the Cancellation in May zone into the Renewal for 2009-10 Likely zone this week including: Chuck, Prison Break, and Ugly Betty. Others getting close to the renewal zone are Knight Rider and Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, both of which got full season (2008-9) orders from their networks this week.
I’ll go on record now as predicting that Pushing Daisies will be this season’s Moonlight (which was sort of last season’sJericho) in terms of the volume of fans wailing and moaning about the injustice and conspiracies of the television networks and vowing never to watch ABC again if the show is cancelled. If you’re emotionally fragile and a fan of Pushing Daisies, prepare yourself! As far as all those Moonlight fans vowing never to watch CBS again,it seems that even more fans have vowed not to watch the other networks.
