ABC Renews Bubble Show ‘V,’ Picks up Six Pilots for Next Season; ‘Ted,’ ‘Scrubs,’ ‘Flashforward’ Canceled

May 14, 2010  •  Post A Comment

ABC has renewed the alien-invasion drama "V," which had been considered on the bubble because of borderline ratings, reports The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

The network has also picked up six pilots for its next season, THR reports.

On the drama side, they include Jerry Bruckheimer’s "The Whole Truth," a legal procedural, and two dramadies, "My Generation," about a group of former high school classmates, and "Detroit 187," a cop show starring Michael Imperioli of "The Sopranos." Three comedies were also given the nod. They are "Mr. Sunshine," starring Matthew Perry of "Friends" as a sports manager; "Happy Endings" starring Elisha Cuthbert about friends trying to find romance; and "Better Together," about two couples.

In cancellation news, EW.com’s The Ausiello Files reports that ABC has cancelled "Better Off Ted," "Scrubs" and "FlashForward." The freshman comedy "Romantically Challenged" starring Alyssa Milano has also been canceled.


  1. I really hate it when they give cancellation notices on shows that haven’t even aired their season finales. It takes the wind out of their sails. Flashforward was just as good as V; neither was great, but both have been interesting.

  2. Let’s see people sent in peanuts to CBS when announced they were cancelling Jericho without a series finale. We got a few more episodes to give a somewhat finale. What is appropriate to send ABC for them to reconsider cancelling Flash Forward?

  3. Way to focus and straight to your point, i love it. Keep up the work people. Dont let anyone stop us bloggers.
