    CBS's "Made in Jersey," after just two shows. Saw it last week and, honestly, didn't think it was bad at all.

    I had my money on "Partners."

    CBS can afford to be quick with a kill, hell they kill shows that would be top-rated on other networks.

    Wasn't that the show with the panty flash in the season preview trailer? Never got a chance to watch, but sorry it's gone

    Never understood why a network cancels a show after 1 or 2 episodes. If they didn't think it was that good to begin with, why air it? And if they do think it should be aired, maybe they should give viewers a chance to discover the show, or figure out if they like it.

    Stuff like that is why I rarely watch network TV shows anymore. Why bother getting involved in a show if it's just going to get canceled or shifted to a different timeslot?

    A lot of it has to to with the upfronts. The networks guarantee a rating for ads purchased back in May, if they have a show that doesn't look like it will meet that guarantee, they dump it.

    The short answer is, the ratings sucked and they dropped significantly for the second episode. That's a very bad sign. They don't have anywhere to move it, and they can't leave it in place where it will screw up the lead-in to Blue Bloods.

    It's a quick hook to be sure, but CBS is in ridiculously good shape in prime time these days, so it really doesn't have to be patient here. I think CBS only had four new shows on the schedule, which is kind of amazing. Everything else was renewed.

    Is "The Neighbors" cancelled yet? Or did they just double down on Modern Family to help with the premiere of Nashville? Anyways my guess is The Neighbors.

    "The Neighbors" aired as the lead-in to the "Modern Family" double down.

    I always feel bad for the new shows that don't get a halloween episode. You figure you get cast in the pilot in March, get picked up in May, spend all summer doing press, seeing your face in magazines and on TV ads and then two weeks or so in - it's all gone.

    The wife was watching this. I left the room after 15 minutes. Same weekly legal drama, but the gimmick is that there's a tough Jersey girl. So what? The whole Jersey thing is played out.
