Bummer about Lie to Me -- my network primetime viewing is down to nearly nothing! I love Tim Roth, & the women characters on that show are so good. But I guess that doesn't make ratings.
I tried Breaking In, & found it a weird combination of slick heist concept with goofy sophmoric characters -- not a good combo.
Mentalist is the only hour-long drama remaining; Community & the Fox animated Sunday night are the comedies, & that's about it. There's Craig Ferguson in latenight. I just checked my TiVo, & those are the only network shows I've got. That's really pathetic. (May I be a Nielsen family please!!!??!?!?)
---- For completeness, I'm checking the Season Pass manager. Guess I can delete "V" (ABC). Is "The Event" still alive on NBC? That is absolutely all from the broadcast networks.
The Event on NBC is still going strong as I also have it on my DVR (which consists now of Event, NBC Thursday night comedies, Ultimate Fighter, South Park and wrestling). I finally got around to watching the first five or so episodes of The Event a few weeks ago. I dig it so far.
As for these five shows Fox cancelled, well I never watched any of them.

Season 2 of Target was decent but not as good as the first. Adding Pucci along with the obligatory romantic tension were creative mistakes. Also Fox gave it the after-Idol slot for the final two episodes. In the first week the rating was so-so (good for the show, bad for the slot); the next week the ratings dipped. That decline likely sealed Target's fate. Oh well.
Originally posted by Me Almost One Year AgoAwww CRAP! I absolutely love [Human Target] and thought the season finale was pure awesome. And then they have to give it the Joss Whedon Memorial Friday Night Timeslot of Death.
In other words, I should just give up now and not act shocked it's inevitably canceled.

Or those DTV Watchmen sequels we're all dying to see.
Didn't Rorschach get killed in the film, though? I guess they'd have to be prequels.
In any event, out of those five series, I'd only even heard of The Chicago Code.

Law & Order: L.A. getting the boot is really surprising, considering the star power attached to that show. And also incredibly disappointing, since Alana De La Garza was the last remaining link to the original L&O.
So was "Sanford and Son," but I was talking about the past few years. I think there's been something like a half dozen series adapted from British series around the time of "The Office" or since, and they've all failed.
