It's that time again: time for the major TV networks to decide which shows will stay, and which ones are getting the axe. Between now and May, ABC, CBS, Fox, NBS and the CW will drop tons of shows, some that barely made it through their first season, but also some old favorites.
Here are five shows we know are getting cancelled. Do you think the networks made the right decision with these, or should they have given them another chance? Vote in our poll below!
Ben and Kate
FOX's freshman sitcom about a brother who moves in with his sister to help her care for her young daughter has suffered from low ratings throughout the season. It averaged just 3.1 million viewers, according to Entertainment Weekly. Given the show's low ratings, "the move wasn't a surprise," wrote James Hibberd in EW.
666 Park Avenue
This supernatural drama about an upscale apartment building possessed by a demonic force didn't make it through one season. ABC pulled the few remaining episodes from their normal Sunday 10 p.m. timeslot, and said they will be aired sometime in the summer, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23
This quirky sitcom didn't work for ABC, either. Fans of the show are crossing their fingers that ABC will air the eight remaining episodes sometime soon, but the network hasn't announced if or when the rest of the season will play out.
Well, we've known this was coming for a while. One of NBC's most beloved comedies will conclude after seven seasons with an hour-long finale on Jan. 31.
It's certainly the end of an era at NBC, which is also wrapping up The Office on May 9. The show's ratings dropped dramatically between its eighth and ninth seasons---46 percent, according to the Atlantic Wire---and ratings have decreased steadily since the show's first season, when nearly 12 million average viewers tuned in.
