Privileged - It's really a shame that this charming dramedy did not survive past its first season. I personally thought it was a better show than 90210 ; it just received none of the buzz (though in reality the ratings weren't all that much worse; if you didn't know...every show on The CW gets terrible ratings!). A change in pace from most of the other CW fare, this show was more family-oriented (though still explored issues relevant to young people, from sibling rivalry to sex) and in my opinion, was really something special. All of the last-minute chatter that it might return midseason only made its ultimate cancellation sting more. 18 episodes (1 season) aired. Reaper - Another CW fan favorite, Reaper already avoided the cancellation axe once after it was nearly canceled following the conclusion of its first season. However, it was rescued and brought back as a midseason replacement this Spring, though frankly, the network never put all that much effort into promoting it. Sadly, the series could not escape fate a second time. If it's any consolation, Tyler Labine will be back on TV next season in FOX's Sons of Tucson . 2 seasons aired. Everybody Hates Chris and The Game - The CW had announced earlier this year that they were getting out of the comedy business entirely, so it isn't a surprise then that these 2 shows will not be returning in the Fall. Yet 2 more examples of decent shows that the network never really gave their full due. Neither were show on my regular viewing schedule; did they end satisfactorily? 4 seasons and 3 seasons aired, respectively. Which CW cancellation angers you the most?
Valentine fans may now suffer broken hearts, but fighters for Jericho can rejoice in reruns. The CW is saying good-bye to its Sunday-night buy-time deal with Media Rights Capital, and welcoming back Jericho to help fill the sudden void. One source says that The CW nixed the agreement after MRC fell behind on payments, while another insider denies the allegation, Variety reports. A spokesman for MRC said that the two companies may bring back the programming block at a later point, once the content, financials and timing are worked out. That the block got the chop already isn't surprising in light of ratings. The MRC slot, which included newbies Valentine and Easy Money , saw on average 1.04 million viewers weekly - a 42 percent drop from the same time last year. The two shows were put on hiatus in October, with plans for In Harm's Way and 4Real unclear. Along with Jericho , The CW plans to plug in series such as Season 1 eps of Everybody Hates Chris , The Drew Carey Show and weekly movies from MGM. The new block will begin November 30.
