Fall TV preview 2016: 34 shows that won't be back
Although the networks canceled 37 shows last season, three of them will get new life on another channel. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Before considering what's new this fall, here's a quick rundown on the series that won't be returning. Among the long-running shows dumped by networks were Fox's once-dominant "American Idol," ABC's "Castle" and CBS' "The Good Wife." Although the five broadcast networks announced the cancellations of 37 series in May, three of them have been given new leases on prime-time life. "Supergirl," grounded by CBS, is flying over to the CW, where it will get the 8 p.m. Monday spot. "America's Top Model," given the boot by the CW, will hit the runway on cable's VH1. And "Nashville," let go after four ABC seasons, will return on CMT in January. Some landmarks here. This will be the first midseason in 13 years without the January return of "American Idol," which ended its run in April. This will be the first season in 16 years without a "CSI" drama on CBS. Then, of course there were the dismal rookie shows that mercifully ejected from the prime-time realm: ABC's "The Muppets," CBS' "Angel from Hell," Fox's "Minority Report," NBC's "Truth Be Told." If you don't remember these, just remember that they were eminently forgettable. Here is the complete list of the shows that won't be back on the networks this season: ABC: "Agent Carter," "Blood & Oil," "Castle," "Galavant," "The Muppets," "Nashville" (moving to CMT, with fifth season starting Jan. 5), "Of King and Prophets," "Wicked City." CBS: "Angel From Hell," "CSI: Cyber," "The Good Wife," "Limitless," "Mike & Molly," "Person of Interest," "Rush Hour," "Supergirl" (moving to the CW). Fox: "American Idol," "Bordertown," "Cooper Barrett's Guide to the Universe," "Grandfathered," "The Grinder," "Minority Report," "Second Chance." NBC: "Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris," "The Carmichael Show," "Crowded," "Hannibal," "Heartbeat," "Heroes Reborn," "The Mysteries of Laura," "The Player," "Telenovela," "Truth Be Told," "Undateable," "You, Me and the Apocalypse." The CW: "America's Next Top Model" (picked up by VH1), "Beauty and the Beast," "Containment" Note: The reality shows listed are confirmed as canceled. Others are not listed on "what's gone" lists, however, because they're easy to revive, and some that aren't on the fall schedule or midseason lists may return eventually.
