happy endings cancelled

The broadcast networks will announce their 2013-14 schedule during Upfront Week, starting Monday, so you will know the official fate of all your favorite shows soon enough.  The networks have already started handing out cancellations, though, according to Deadline.

  • ABC cancelled Happy Endings after three seasons.  Rumor has it USA may pick up the sitcom to pair with Modern Family reruns starting in the fall.
  • ABC also cancelled three-season veteran Body of Proof and freshman series Malibu Country, How to Live with Your Parents, and Red Widow.
  • NBC cancelled Ryan Murphy‘s new comedy, The New Normal.
  • Smash was a respectable hit for NBC in its debut 2012 season before taking a dive in season two.  After moving the show to Dead Air Saturdays in April, NBC is finally putting Smash out of its misery.
  • Beverly Hills Cop was a high-profile pilot, given the brand recognition and involvement of Eddie Murphy and showrunner Shawn Ryan (The Shield).  CBS surprisingly passed, but Sony Television is expected to shop the pilot around to other networks.

Tuesday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • Smash’s future looks pretty dim.  Following the abysmal ratings for its season premiere two weeks ago, last night’s episode dropped a whopping 25% for a series-low 0.9 rating and 3.29 million viewers versus the season two premiere’s 1.2 rating.  The NBC drama’s days are likely numbered.
  • Also down was Fox’s New Girl, which scored a 2.2 rating and 4.36 million viewers for yet another creatively swell episode.  That’s a drop of 15% from its last original episode’s 2.6 rating.
  • NBC’s new comedy Go On—which has been one of the better performing new programs of the season—has been having some trouble gaining its momentum back following the December break.  Last night’s episode garnered a 1.1 rating and 3.32 million viewers, which is down 15% from its last new episode’s 1.3 rating.
  • The series premiere of The CW’s Cult was met with a muted response, as the episode netted a 0.3 rating and 940,000 viewers.  For comparison’s sake, that’s down from the now-cancelled Emily Owens, M.D.’s 0.4 rating for its series finale a few weeks ago.

Paul Lee (President of ABC Entertainment Group) Talks THE RIVER, ONCE UPON A TIME, the Future of PAN AM and COUGAR TOWN, and More

by     Posted 2 years, 293 days ago

As part of the network’s TCA Press Tour presentation, President of ABC Entertainment Group, Paul Lee, took some time to talk about where things stand with some of their popular and long-running series, how some of their freshman series were received, and their hopes for some of their upcoming programs.

Lee said that the horror thriller The River (premiering on February 7th) is set for only eight episodes, but there is the plan to have it be a long-running series. He is also thrilled with the performance of Once Upon A Time, is optimistic about the future of Pan Am, and said that while they made a good attempt, he doesn’t think they quite breathed life into the Charlie’s Angels franchise through the recent series. And, while he has high hopes for how Cougar Town will play when it returns, Lee is still unsure of when exactly that return will be. Check out what he had to say about all the series after the jump:

The circus that is upfronts continues with ABC announcing a slew of cancellations, pick-ups and renewals. Via TV Line, the network has decided to cancel sci-fi series V, Matthew Perry’s sitcom Mr. Sunshine, the superhero family drama No Ordinary Family and the on-the-bubble drama Brothers and Sisters (after considering giving the show one more season, the network decided to free up their Sunday night slot and axe the show). Other cancellations at ABC include Off the Map, Detroit 187 and Better With You.

On a lighter note, freshman comedy Happy Endings and procedural drama Body of Proof were both renewed for a second season, and the Charlie’s Angels reboot has scored a pick-up.

Exclusive: Jeri Ryan Talks MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH & MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY, ABC’s BODY OF PROOF and Karaoke

Jeri Ryan interview MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH, MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY, BODY OF PROOF and Karaoke slice

With Warner Premiere’s Mortal Kombat live–action digital series premiering tomorrow on Machinima.com (a new episode will launch every week), the studio held a press junket today in Beverly Hills and I got to speak with Jeri Ryan, Michael Jai White, director Kevin Tancharoen and game creator Ed Boom.

As most of you know, Tancharoen and the same cast filmed Mortal Kombat: Rebirth last year and the success of the short led Warner Premiere to offer Tancharoen the job helming the new live-action web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. While the short film was a tease at what Tancharoen wanted to do with a feature, the web series is being released in conjunction with the new Mortal Kombat video game and it’s goal is to offer gamers the history of the warriors they know and love.  Obviously if the new series is a success, I’m sure we’ll get more installments.  But I’m still hoping that Tancharoen will get the keys to a hard R feature…

Anyway, during my interview with Ryan we talked about how she got involved in the project, what was it like to film all the action, is she signed for more Mortal Kombat series or even a feature, and we talked about Body of Proof on ABC and what’s her karaoke song. Hit the jump to watch.
