The bloodbath continued for the broadcast networks’ prime-time programs Friday, with ABC, NBC and Fox all swinging the cancellation ax.

Fox continued to exorcise programs from its prime-time lineup into the afternoon, following up on its earlier cancellation of “Lucifer,” which we reported previously, by canceling “The Exorcist.”

The Futon Critic was reporting that ABC canceled midseason shows “The Crossing” and “Deception” along with “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” “Marvel’s Inhumans,” “The Mayor” and “Ten Days in the Valley.”

Meanwhile, NBC decided not to give the midseason drama “Rise” a second season, meaning next Tuesday’s episode will end its run. Actress Shannon Purser, who plays Annabelle Bowman on “Rise,” tweeted the news of the show’s cancellation. Here’s her tweet …


  1. Oh, no! I thought Lucifer was safe!

  2. Rise is 1 of the best uplifting shows on network TV. I know people liked it,please reconsider,do not put on a robotic,spy,counter intelligence or stupid sitcom,PLEASE! RISE above it!!!

  3. I guess this means intelligent, adult, non-law office, hospital, police, spy shows always have an uphill climb. “Rise” had some terrific scripts, great acting, and real human interaction. All of which make for low ratings. Come-on Netflix, show up the networks and make this show “Rise” again with all new original shows.
