Which series is next on the network chopping block?
It hasn’t been an easy week for many shows, as networks have been making tough decisions about what to bring back to TV next season. So far, we’ve counted 17 cancellations for this week alone, and there are surely more to come.
According to a report from EW, the reasons behind all this bloodshed are connected to the end of pilot season and networks gearing up for their yearly presentations to advertisers. Basically, it’s all about the money. Don’t worry — soon networks will be allowing the new shows they’re adding to their slates as well.
