A TV Post

By now the networks and cable channels have made their decisions about which shows are comming back and which are cancelled and the results have been officially announced or leaked to the entertainment media.

Here are a list of the shows that I care about one way or another.

Castle has been renewed. 

Blue Bloods has been renewed
Criminal Minds has been renewed
Hawaii Five-O has been renewed

Chuck has been renewed

Fringe has been renewed

Supernatural has been renewed

And some stinkers that needed to get the boot have been axed as well, like Lie to Me on Fox and The Cape and Chase on NBC.

Some crap shows have also been renwed like Harry's Law and Survivor.  And some very good shows like The Chicago Code and Detroit 1-8-7  have either been officially cancelled or are hanging by the thinnest of threads.

In the case of Detroit 1-8-7 it could very well be that ABC execs don't want to go into 2012 with a show about how hopelessly corrupt Chicago politics are when they are going to be going all out to reelect a Chicago politican to the presidency.

On Cable, FX's Justified has been renewed for 13 episodes, Rescue Me is about to air its final season and Sons of Anarchy will be back later this year.  On other cable outlets the popular shows Burn Notice, In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs, White Collar and Royal Pains are all comming back.
