A few surprises on the ABC renew/cancel front coming over late yesterday evening:
- Private Practice
- Body of Proof
- Last Man Standing
- Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt 23
- Pan Am
- The River
I think the biggest surprise for me is that Body of Proof was renewed while GCB was canceled. BoP is a better show but it’s ratings were awful. GCB’s ratings were better than BoP by a good amount. I’m curious to find out more about the decision.
Private Practice was another show I thought had a good chance of going. But I think ABC did the right thing and give it a short (13-15 episode) final season renewal. I don’t think it’s been officially announced as a final season but all indications are that is the plan, which makes perfect sense. The show was never great to begin with and it’s beyond tired at this point.
