Cancellation Watch: Which New Show Should Get the Axe First?

Date September 30, 2011
Which Show Should be Canceled? We're well into the new 2011-2012 TV season and there are a few hits (ABC's 'Pan Am,' CBS's '2 Broke Girls') and a number of flops (The CW's 'H8R,' NBC's 'The Playboy Club'), and the cancellation axe will start swinging very soon.

Which Show Should be Canceled? We're well into the new 2011-2012 TV season and there are a few hits (ABC's 'Pan Am,' CBS's '2 Broke Girls') and a number of flops (The CW's 'H8R,' NBC's 'The Playboy Club'), and the cancellation axe will start swinging very soon.

In terms of ratings, many of NBC's new shows are sinking. Coupled with critical appeal, it looks like the network is having the least luck this season. 'Free Agents' and 'The Playboy Club' are on death watch, yet NBC boss Bob Greenblatt seems to be content on watching, not canceling.

CBS has had some luck in finding an audience for its new dramas like 'Person of Interest,' as well as comedy '2 Broke Girls,' but the premiere of 'How to Be a Gentleman' did nowhere near 'Girls' numbers ... nor anywhere near the now-canceled '$#*! My Dad Says' that lived ever-so-briefly in that timeslot last season.

Fox's 'Terra Nova' had a ton of buzz, but an audience about half of its dinosaur-sized budget. Meanwhile, The CW's 'H8R' is dead on arrival with critics and viewers alike.

Too early to cancel a new show, you say? Last season, both Fox's critically acclaimed but low rated 'Lone Star' and ABC's 'My Generation' were pulled from the schedule after airing only two episodes.

So, which show should get canceled first? Tell us below!
