Television Stations--Fall Line Up
The networks have scheduled an interesting '06 television line-up, with some well-deserved continuations and surprising cancellations. The major networks compete for ratings by canceling low-rated tv shows and launching new ones. Here's a look at how various tv shows have fared.
The folks at the network are changing it up. Many favorite tv shows are slated to remain, like My Name Is Earl, The Biggest Loser, The Office, Scrubs, and ER. But quite a few television programs will be cut: Joey, Four Kings, Teachers, Surface, E-Ring, and, yes, Will & Grace. Sunday night tv drama will be replaced by football.
ABC's fall television season also mixes things up a bit. Many well-loved tv shows will stay, including Lost, What About Brian?, Six Degrees, and Grey's Anatomy. Yet a host of tv programs have been tossed. Check out this list of tv cancellations: Alias, Commander in Chief, In Justice, Invasion, Night Stalker, and The Evidence.
The No. 1 rated tv network, CBS has applied the old adage: If it isn't broke, don't fix it. The television line-up will stay pretty much the same this fall at the network, with returning network favorites like The Amazing Race, Cold Case, and Without a Trace. However, the network has cancelled the Sunday night movie, along with Love Monkey and Threshold.
FOX tv viewers have an interesting '06 ahead. The OC fans can relax--it's returning for another full tv season. Prison Break will continue, though ending for the season in January. 24 and American Idol will make up for the interruption with their January television premiers. However, the network has nixed Killer Instinct and Reunion.
Did one of your favorite tv shows get cut? Keep in mind, the networks offer new tv programs every fall. You may very well find a new all-time favorite tv program.
