ABC Cancels Scrubs, FlashForward, Romantically Challenged and Better Off Ted

ABC has canceled Scrubs, Better Off Ted, FlashForward and Romantically Challenged, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The end of the Scrubs comes as no surprise to fans. The comedy was rebooted with several new faces this season to middling numbers and star-executive producer Zach Braff wrote on his Facebook a few months ago,"[Scrubs] is no more. It was worth a try, but alas ... it didn't work."

Scrubs, along with Better Off Ted, aired a shortened season. After both series' low ratings, the last new episodes were burned off in March to 3.4 million viewers and 2.55 million viewers for their respective finales.

FlashForward, thought by many to possibly be the next Lost, premiered to 12.47 million viewers in September. However, ratings have since fallen to 4.77 million viewers for last week's new episode.

Romantically Challenged, starring Alyssa Milano, made a modest debut in April to 10.67 million viewers and has only aired three episodes thus far.

Are you sad these shows won't be back?

First, The FlashForward? What's ABC doing? Move it to another night or something! Seriously. It's up against too many good shows on Thursday. Let it replace Castle on Monday or even better, give it LOST's Tuesday slot. Don't just drop it. It's a mistake. And I can't believe they're renewing V over FlashForward. I've been enjoying V - and I love that it's filmed here in Vancouver - but it's really cheesey.
Then again - I know nothing about the TV business. I'm just tired of networks teasing me with good TV and then pulling the plug on it just as I get hooked.
COME ON ABC! Give me something good to watch and then LEAVE IT ON!

Better Off Ted is great. But shows without laugh tracks have a very hard time. The Office seems to be the only one to last. Modern Family has a chance as well

better off ted is really good. As far a Flash Forward is concerned, ABC really messed it up with the stupid hiatus as usual!! It is really a great show with awesome suspense!!! They never know how to keep a show like that going correctly!

I haven't watched FlashForward yet, but I've been meaning to do so. I was hoping it could maybe be my "replacement" show for when Lost is finished, so I'm kinda bummed they're not renewing it. But if the decision was between this and V, I'm very glad V is being renewed!
I also really did like Better Off Ted. I didn't discover it until later, but the episodes I did watch proved to be quite hilarious.
Also, as a long-time Scrubs fan, I do feel sad to know the show has ended. The final season really was not as bad as it was made out to be, and I still got many laughs from it. I still say the network would have been much better off marketing it as a spin-off rather than a continuation of the original.

Honestly I watch the new shows Flash Forward and V on ABC and of the two I would have expected the later to be canceled first.

if flash forward is canceled, does that mean from THIS point on they will hault new episodes? or finish this season?

This is so lame! I love FlashForward. Don't they ever consider that it's 2010 and ppl watch tv shows on the internet more then the stationary remote sibling. People miss tv shows, some people have lives. Were sorry we can't cancel everything to glue our bums to the couch. They air a show once a week in a time slot on night competeing with other great shows. If you want ratings Go put a viewed count meter on sites like sidereel, megavideo, stagevu, ninja. There you'll find what you are looking for.
It's time they stoped cancelling good shows and start putting up global servers. And make it actually available to view a season. I'll put up with a few ad's if you network execs pull your heads out your own asses!
2010 think about it.

I really liked Better Off Ted and thought that it could have grown into something. Flash Forward's Break made it unbearable. Most of us are just tired of network TV. I hate reality shows and they do not want to pay for the well-written shows.
