I am still upset with CBS cancellation of “Moonlight” and I decided to become more loyal to Fox, especially now that they have cancelled “New Amsterdam”. Somehow that show was not appealing to me. I found myself bothered by almost every character.
Actually let’s see first what shows have been cancelled from the 2008-2009 schedule :
– Back to you, Canterbury’s Law, K-Ville, Nashville, New Amsterdam, The Next Great American Band
And now, what is in store for us:
The OT, The Simpsons, King of the Hill, Family Guy, American Dad
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Prison Break
House, Fringe (new serie, description follows)
Bones, ‘Til Death, Do not disturb (possible name change)
The Moment of Truth, Kitchen Nightmares
Are you smarter than a 5th grader?, Don’t forget your lyrics
Cops, America’s most wanted, MADtv, Talkshow with Spike Feresten
Something about the newcomer ‘Fringe’, from the Fox’s website:
‘From J.J. Abrams (“Lost”), Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the team behind “Star Trek,” “Mission: Impossible III” and “Alias,” comes a new drama that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between science fiction and reality.
When an international flight lands at Boston’s Logan Airport and the passengers and crew have all died grisly deaths, FBI Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (newcomer Anna Torv) is called in to investigate. After her partner, Special Agent JOHN SCOTT (Mark Valley, “Boston Legal”), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to DR. WALTER BISHOP (John Noble, “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”), our generation’s Einstein. There’s only one catch: he’s been institutionalized for the last 20 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son PETER (Joshua Jackson, “Dawson’s Creek”) in to help.
When Olivia’s investigation leads her to manipulative corporate executive NINA SHARP (Blair Brown, “Altered States”), our unlikely trio along with fellow FBI Agents PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick, “The Wire”), CHARLIE FRANCIS (Kirk Acevedo, “Oz”) and ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) will discover that what happened on Flight 627 is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.
FRINGE is directed by Emmy Award-winning Alex Graves (“The West Wing”) and produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions.”
Speculation is that “Fringe” will land in tandem with “Prison Break” on Mondays, moving ‘Sarah Connor’ on Wednesday.
