Fresh off last night’s drama pilot pick-up news from Fox, the network has announced a trio of cancellations along with news of pilots that it will be passing on (via THR).  Briefly:

  • Enlisted – The freshman comedy series revolving around a Rear Detachment unit has been canceled.  The show hailed from Cougar Town producer Kevin Biegel and garnered positive reviews, but it failed to build an audience on Friday nights after its midseason debut.
  • Dads – In a slightly surprising move, executive producer Seth MacFarlane’s live-action multi-cam comedy starring Giovanni Ribisi and Seth Green has been given the ax.  Though the show never caught on like MacFarlane’s animated shows, some thought Fox might give it a pass given how lucrative MacFarlane has been for the network.
  • Surviving Jack – The shortest-lived series of the bunch, this Christopher Meloni-fronted comedy only debuted at the end of March but is being canceled after six episodes.
  • Rake – On the drama side, the Greg Kinnear lawyer series has also been canceled.
  • Additionally, Fox has decided to pass the comedy pilots Dead Boss, Fatrick, and No Place Like Home.

Stay tuned over the next few days as the other networks announce cancellations and renewals ahead of next week’s upfronts, where they will unveil their 2014-15 schedules.
