    Normally I reserve these threads for early May and continue them on well into June time (about when it all settles down) but it seems TV stations have been starting the waving of the cancellation and renewals wand and/or rolling the dice a bit earlier this year. Update- more in and full list (ish and sans cable networks )
    As the machinations of US TV are almost unfathomable to those that have a passing acquaintance with logic let alone a good one our usual link of choice is
    (Screenwipe S3E5 if you are going by other methods, apologies for the wasted couple of hours linking up this series tends to cause).

    Sources- some combination of and

    I do not have nearly enough patience/masochistic tendencies to wade through the pilots ordered but feel free to discuss them. Equally as yet undecided I am not wishing to wade through in full right now but the links above should allow you to and again feel free to discuss them.

    Surprise comeback
    Breaking in- I have not watched many but after what looked like a cancellation (and that being preceded by awful show killing scheduling) it seems the speculation turned out to be correct and it got a second series. It seems unlikely it will have a third (at least on fox) but such a thing is nearly unprecedented for TV shows.

    Renewals so far
    It seems after a shaky few years Bones is being renewed without hesitation although that have more to do with Fox more or less dropping the ball or otherwise having shows end (House was always have to ended this time around). Can't say I have ever really go into it (tried watching the DVDs one time but they did not grab me although I am still in the post wire world so procedurals tend to be useless).
    Copy and paste time
    The Amazing Race
    Big Bang Theory
    How I Met Your Mother
    Blue Bloods
    NCIS: LA
    Person of Interest
    The Mentalist
    Criminal Minds
    The Good Wife
    Hawaii Five-0
    2 Broke Girls
    Mike and Molly
    The Amazing Race
    60 Minutes
    48 Hours Mystery
    The Voice
    Family Guy
    The Simpsons
    The Cleveland Show
    American Dad
    Kitchen Nightmares
    The X Factor

    Might we finally see the first CSI cancelled?

    Burn notice was renewed for a sixth series (the upcoming one) back in 2010.
    Game of thrones was renewed for series 2 very shortly after the series started and there are rumblings of further renewals after that (indeed series 2 airs in a couple of weeks).

    Terra Nova was known about a while back
    Luck- an HBO horse racing drama. Cancelled seemingly for PR reasons (some horses died during filming but not in front of the camera or anything).
    Allen Gregory (Fox)
    Charlie's Angels (ABC)
    Chuck (NBC)
    Desperate Housewives (ABC)
    Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (ABC)
    Free Agents (NBC)
    H8R (CW)
    House (Fox)
    Man Up! (ABC)
    One Tree Hill (CW)
    The Playboy Club (NBC)
    Prime Suspect (NBC)
    Work It (ABC)

    So shows you will miss, shows you have a hard time figuring out why they were renewed and shows that should have been put to bed sooner?

    I have yet to get far into series 2 (I can just about watch one episode at a day) but so far I kind of wish someone would take Walking dead out back and give it the two barrels treatment. I would do a breakdown but it seems has already hit many of the notes.
    The only thing that really raises an eyebrow is Hawaii Five-0 got renewed- I caught a couple of episodes waiting for various things to appear/people to get ready for DVDs and it was stupid- California film and TV types seem to have a loose grip on reality/physics at the best of times but this was a cut above that (my favourite that I saw was a guy driving through a gate in a sports car despite having a broken wrist and then proceeding to get into a fight again despite a broken wrist).

    Equally I have not seen too much painful computer related nonsense other than some stuff in Person of interest which was not half as bad as previous years (I do not think I am any more inclined to ignore it but it might have happened) and the usual magic database/wizard did it at work in criminal minds.

    As long as we get more Community and less Whitney, I think I will be satisfied.

    *Breaking In
    They are the only two*[three] out of the renewals that I watch, although I have been meaning to start a few of the other.
    Also, I do enjoy Breaking In, but as of episode 3 (4 episodes are out, just not up to latest) it hasn't been as good as season 1.

    I don't get why they brought back Breaking In. It was a great show, but it's unlikely to get renewed for a third season. Maybe there was some contract issues that forced Fox to revive it?

    I don't care about renewals now. At least I won't have to for a while because all I care about is getting South Park, and that's renewed until the 20th season I believe.

    I'm kinda sad to see Prime Suspect go. It was a good show tbh. Terra Nova was too. House as well.

    More info has trickled in. As always I am not paying attention to new shows being picked up but you are quite free to discuss them. seems to be the easier to manage list right now although also helps.

    Everything that was not up above (the link had the full list). No real word on US cable stuff although what I can find says Game of Thrones was already renewed for series 3 as was Burn notice which was picked up back in 2010 for two series with the upcoming one being the second of those, Bored to Death was cancelled, Eureka was cancelled, Hung was cancelled, In Plain Sight has a fifth and final to come and Breaking Bad has had a final series ordered. Flashpoint was renewed about a week ago for a final series
    Sons of Anarchy was renewed back in February for series 6 and 7 with an eye to 7 being the last

    I am slowly stopping watching TV in any form and had not really seen many of the cancelled ones although I tried to get breaking in back into the rotation since it came back but never got around to it.
    I think they might have got the cancellations (note I actually mean cancellations as opposed to shows ending "naturally") reasonably "correct" as far as quality goes this year (Awake is about the only thing I see with eyebrows raised although it is a network sci fi show so I do not think anybody expected it to continue) and maybe even kept weaker shows they could have lost.

    Quite a shame how some shit TV shows (in my opinion) are left while really good ones get cancelled.

    There have been many years I would have agreed whole heartedly AlanJohn but this year I have no real complaints - House was always set to end, Chuck too for the most part and Terra Nova was never going to last and everybody knew it which pretty much leaves Awake and again network sci fi.

    Wait, they might be ending CSI: Miami? Now how will the nation get its fix of David Caruso, sunglasses, and one liners?

    I'm a little sad that 30 Rock will be ending next season and Community has only gotten 13 episodes so far (I don't foresee it getting any more, unless NBC has a horrible 2012-2013 season).

    Wait, The Finder got canned? Aw, I really liked that show... the finale was definitely not a fitting end, either.

    Wonder if any other network could or would pick it up. It'd probably be right at home on USA.

    I hate stations nowadays. I was a huge fan of FlashForward. Greatest story ever told in a television series I find. And unlike Lost, it actually answered questions the next episode, instead of dragging it out, but it also created new ones. There was a huge campaign to save that show and ABC just ignored it, and now all the actors went onto different shows so there's no hope for it at all. Especially after the ending, god damn I loved that ending.

    Anyways, it's weird that a lot of the canceled shows, I never even heard of.

    Yeah, it's disappointing, but if a show's not bring in as much bacon as they want, it rarely matters how the fans feel.

    Speaking of fan campaigns, though, there's apparently already a petition with almost 1400 signatures for The Finder (though I'm sure I'm one of only a few here who care). Usually I wouldn't bother with these, but hey, if Fringe got another season, why not?

    The only reason the 2 CSI spinoffs are getting on the fence is because Miami is comes on at erratic times on Sundays due to its sports lineup and other shows it HAS to air, and as for NY, they air that show inbetween two other shows on a Friday night, that no really watches in the first place. Now if they gave comedy its own night and all the CSI's their own just like NCIS, they wouldn't have a problem.

    I still can't believe shit shows like Big Bang Theory, Whitney, and Glee get renewed.

    But Community is still alive so I'm good. It's pretty much the only show I follow nowadays outside of Legend of Korra.
