Cancellation Buzz: USA Today Names 21 'On the Bubble' Shows - Featured

Similar to our own Cancellation Buzz section, USA Today has assembled a chart chronicling shows for next season that are either "On the Bubble", "Renewed (or Almost)" or "Gone or Nearly Dead". Check it out here: The early line on fall: What's in, out and undecided Not too many surprises, though it's interesting that the yet-to-premiere Sit Down, Shut Up (Sunday at 8:30PM on FOX), is already considered on the bubble. I was actually thrilled to see Privileged listed as a bubble show and not nearly dead, as I really would like to see that show get a second season. It also stung a little to see Dollhouse listed as "Nearly Dead" as opposed to "On the Bubble". Besides the obvious that we already know are canceled, they are considering Worst Week , Eleventh Hour , Life , Kings and Reaper as "Nearly Dead". Still on the bubble are many new Spring series, including Castle , The Unusuals , Southland , Parks & Recreation , Better Off Ted , In the Motherhood , Cupid and Surviving Suburbia . Also remaining on the bubble include current series Chuck , My Name Is Earl , Medium , Samantha Who? , Cold Case , Without a Trace , Gary Unmarried and more. So...which bubble shows do you most want to survive?

Castle's Nathan Fillion Writes His Own Ticket in Comedic Drama

It makes sense for Nathan Fillion to play a writer on ABC's Castle (Mondays, 10 pm/ET&PT). The son of retired English teachers, he's co-founded a charity, Kids Need to Read, to provide books for underfunded libraries. And while he's unpretentious about his own reading habits - he lists Robert Parker's Spenser novels among recent favorites - he revels in mystery novelist Rick Castle's occasional arrogance on the show. Best known for playing Captain Malcolm Reynolds in the TV show Firefly and the movie Serenity, and for his role as Joey Buchanan in One Life to Live, Fillion got his start performing improvisational comedy in his hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. Castle, which pairs him with alluring detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), lets him handle drama and comedy alike. But as he explained to us, he plays them both the same.
