How about The Lone Gunmen, can I vote for that? I don't watch any of the shows listed.

(Wow, polls are still working here!)

This is a good one. Gotta be Undeclared. I really enjoyed that show. I was disappointed to see its season get cut, and even more so to find out it probably won't be back. I miss Family Guy quite a bit as well.

Why is it that the really good shows get cut, and mindless garbage like "That 70s Show" manage to stay on the air?

Exclamation Family Guy and Futurama are returning next year

As per Fox's press conferences, which I'm almost ashamed to be up to date on, all the shows on the list are cancelled for next year with the exception of Family Guy and Futurama, which in my opinion, have been severely misused by the network honchos at Fox.

A couple of years ago, Fox commissioned all the writers/animators at Family Guy to create almost two season's worth of new episodes, then chooses to keep the show as a midseason replacement, airing less than half the "new" and then airing the last half of the "new" episodes during the summer season (last year) in a variety of timeslots.

And since they had a stockpile of new episodes, Fox did not want to get ahead of the curve, so to speak, so they told all the animators and writers to get a new job, basically placing the show in a status of limbo, but still to air "new" episodes this upcoming tv season. And since animated shows run a little differently than "live" shows, they basically work year-round, and lost all (if any) continuity they previously had built up, having to build from the ground up all new writers and animators, with most of the originals having moved onto new shows.

Well, that's the status of Futurama for next season. They have a "stockpile" of "new" episodes never aired, but Fox told the animators and writers to take a hike. The show is still going to run (most likely in different timeslots on different nights) but the quality will most likely lessen, if it continues the following year.

Matt Groening was especially upset at Fox for making them millions of dollars of money, but getting "dissed" by the execs. I don't blame him. He threatened to end the simpsons' tv series soon, but soon retracted.

Any comments?

I liked American Embassy. I'd like to see it back. (and not just because the lead actress was hot!) (Let's not turn this into a hot thread PLEASE!)

Dark Angel definitely made a comeback late in the season. (I would not have been upset to see it go after the first few episodes of this season.)

I would like to see it back also.

Dark Angel is my vote, but I also voted for Furturama. That 80's Show wasn't bad, but I won't lose any sleep over seeing it go.

I hear Andy Richter is going to be a mid-season replacement. That show rocks. At least it wasn't cancelled though.

I voted Family Guy. That is one of my top5 season passes.

I was also one of the few watching The Lone Gunmen. They deserved better.

Dark Angel is just too corny for me. Too many goofy costumes and dialogue. It could have been a lot better IMO. As for the poll, though I like all those shows, Undeclared would have to me my choice. I've got animation burnout after Simpsons, KOTH, FG, Futurama.

Come on!

Are there no Grounded for Life fans here?

I think it's the best new comedy in a long time.

Was it excluded here because Fox has already picked it up? Or, have the shows listed here already been canceled?

I know Bernie Mac will have a second year.

I'm sorry, but I LOVED Titus! The last season kinda blowed cause they focused on his girlfriends family too much.

But I think that Christopher Titus is hilarious!

I've tried to watch the Family Guy several times, have yet to make it through an entire episode.

I voted Titus, but would have picked Dark Angel, had it been an option. Actually, I watched ALL the shows on the list, so if I could have picked them all, I would have.

gizmoaddict, you hit the nail on the head. Grounded For Life didn't make the list because it was actually renewed (please picture a look of shock and pleasant surprise on my face now, thank you).

It is interesting that Andy Richter was picked up for midseason, as both Undeclared and Titus performed better in the same time slot.
