CBS has pulled the plug on seven of its lower-performing prime time shows, TV Wrap reports.
The least surprising cancellation is that of NUMB3RS, whose fate has been in question for some time. One of the lead actors went on to appear in a different show for a different network, leading many to speculate that the end of NUMB3RS was already a done deal.
COLD CASE and GHOST WHISPERER were also canceled, though MEDIUM was spared.
The network’s newest series, MIAMI MEDICAL, will also not find a home on the fall schedule.
As for sitcoms, ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE won’t be back, which means that Billie’s baby delivery, which wrapped up the season earlier this month, will also be the way the series ends.
Wednesday sitcoms THE OLD ADVENTURES OF NEW CHRISTINE and GARY UNMARRIED were also let go. The cancellation of CHRISTINE represents a double whammy for co-star Wanda Sykes, since her nighttime show was just canceled by the Fox network.
CBS will officially announce its fall lineup tomorrow. Don’t forget to come back to the Live 5 Insider for details.
