We're getting close to the upfronts, a couple of weeks away, and some news is starting to filter out:

Gilmore Girls (thefutoncritic.com) will not be returning for an 8th season. Their run will end on May 15.

As for the "Studio 60" deathwatch, the summer burnoff of 6 episodes will begin on May 24th, in the Thursday at 10pm slot--after the NBC upfronts. Sounds like this show is all but toast, and there have been rumors around that the sets have already been taken apart.

There is a decent list of what's going to be ending this season over at the Futon Critic (thefutoncritic.com).

And the upfront schedule:

NBC- May 14
ABC- May 15
CBS- May 16
Fox, CW- May 17

Hey cool since you have me here...

Hey so how long did DRIVE last, two episodes? I'd say "Amazing" but I think it's the third or fourth show to have a run that short this season.

Speaking of which, I can't believe "The Winner" is merely "on hiatus" instead of grouped with those other folks.

Mostly, I just wanted to use those thread icons that never got used. :)

Four episodes aired in a span of about 8 days (Sunday 2, Monday 1, following Monday 1), which is why it felt shorter than it was.

I wish I could see more of Stars Hollow, but God was I sick of Rory and Lorelei so meh.

Too bad about Drive, but no way am I watching a Minear series again. He should just start making them straight to DVD limited series for God's sake.

Only saw one episode of the Winner and it didn't live up to its pedigree but it was good enough.

I hope Studio 60 wraps things up nicely because I don't see it making the cut. I like it too much.

I like Gilmore Girls (yeah, I said it) but it had ran it's coarse. I just wish it had a chance to wrap things up properly. This was, at one point, one of the best written shows on TV.

Studio 60 was ok, if a bit heavy handed and self important.

I really enjoyed this week's GG with Lorelai's karaoke (and the obvious setup of Luke walking in) and then Lorelai's shell-shocked reaction to Logan at the end, but I'll be glad that this is the final season. Shows are fueled by drama, and when you have the two characters that deserve to be together together, there isn't much to do. Which is why April had to be invented to rip Luke and Lorelai apart, and thus this season was spent undoing the damage. I look forward to them getting together in time for the finale and then riding off into the sunset.

Studio 60 was such an amazing show, not only for the plot but for Aaron Sorkin being a nutcase and how that was visible within the plot. I'll miss it when its gone.

I thought 'The Winner' was the best show in between the Sunday cartoons since Arrested Development was moved all over the map by Fox. It's possible it was just a one trick pony, but I've been sick of King of the Hill for eons now.

I had the first 2 or 3 episodes on my DVR, but decided that I didn't really wanna pick up a new show after all. I guess me & FOX felt the same way.

I liked "The Winner" ... had that weird "Chris Elliott in Get a Life" vibe going for it.

Studio 60 was great whenever it actually dealt with some of the problems of putting on a late-night sketch comedy show. It got brutal when it became a will they-won't they festival with the main characters, and when it became Sorkin's therapy over his relationship with Kristen Chenoweth.

Seconded. Although I figured it was doomed because of the fact that Corddry's character was basically having that kind of relationship with a 14-year-old. (Mind you, he was pretty much just as immature, but hey.)

You know, I never was that big a fan of KING OF THE HILL until I lived in Longview Texas for a short while. The two best places to eat were either WHATABURGER or HOMETOWN BUFFET, and every male over 40 looked and sounded like Hank Hill. Basically, it was like living in the show and I grew to enjoy watching it.

I'll blurb this here since this pertains to the subject but not exactly current subject. Was browsing along today when I came across this small article. Think it's worth a brush through if your fan of axed shows.

DVD Empire reviews canceled shows.

I have a lot of complaints about Gilmore Girls' last season but I don't feel like starting a GG thread.

That being said, none of the background guys who really MADE the show (singing minstrel I'm looking in your direction) will get a proper sendoff so it is sad on that level.

On the other hand, I sit thinking "God put a bullet in this horse's head" during 60 to 70% of every show so I reiterate: meh.

But hopefully, with only one episode left, Rory and Logan won't reconcile. I still believe she belongs with Jess, and am greatly saddened that he's too busy fighting Sylar.

If nto Van Halen, then who? I can;t think of any other bandout there that would draw a large enough audience in to warrant a second season of this show.
