FALL TV 2009: CANCELLATION WATCH

Add ABC's EASTWICK to the fall shows that have been canned. I actually enjoyed EASTWICK in it's first 2 outings, but later episodes started to become lazy and uninspired. In fact, I have the last 3 episodes waiting to be seen on my DVR (never a good sign). Other ABC shows in danger are HANK and THE FORGOTTEN, though the latter just got picked up for 5 additional episodes. But HANK surely will be canceled soon. (MODERN FAMILY, FLASHFORWARD, THE MIDDLE, COUGAR TOWN and V are all safe)

At the CW, THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE was the first fall show canned, and MELROSE PLACE looked like a goner, too. That is, until it was announced that Heather Locklear would join it. For now, its on life support. The only other new CW show, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, is more than safe.

NBC has ditched TRAUMA after its run, and has picked up COMMUNITY and MERCY for full seasons.

No word yet on WHEN CBS will be canning THREE RIVERS, but NCIS: LA and THE GOOD WIFE have full season pick-ups, and ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE will be around for at least 18 episodes.

As for FOX, GLEE and CLEVELAND SHOW have earned their full-season pick-ups, but look for BROTHERS to get the ax any day now.

FALL PILOTS OFFICIALLY CANNED:
*EASTWICK (ABC)
*THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE: TBL (CW)
*TRAUMA (NBC)
