'Castle' renewed! Which show are you championing now?

castle-renewedImage Credit: Michael Desmond/ABCThe news continues to be good for Castle. After hitting a series high with last night’s conclusion of the two-part serial killer event (14.5 million viewers, the Alphabet’s best scripted performance in the time slot in 14 years), word came today that ABC has renewed the show for a 22-episode third season. That’s the power of Rick Castle/Nathan Fillion’s charm (they really are one in the same) and of a smart, sexy woman packing heat (Stana Katic). Let’s also give props to ABC for giving the show time to grow and a solid lead-in. (Cough, Better Off Ted, cough.)

Now the big question: Which show are you still championing for renewal? Make your passionate plea in the comments. And bookmark Michael Ausiello’s updated Renewal Scorecard.

    ABC cancelled Pushing Daisies. ABC can go to hell.

    • Cara

      Little known fact: in the Lost flash-sideways world, Pushing Daisies is a hit show! And pizza isn’t fattening. Firefly is a major TV franchise (with spinoffs), and my cats never claw the sofa. I want to live in that world!!!

      • Trixie

        Take me with you!



        Think about it, FOX already has the best show on tv after LOST in FRINGE, and there is a chance Conan could be coming – renew Human Target (a wonderful action show throwback to the days before CSI like shows came to pass) and bring back Spike Ferenstein and FOX will be the best network

      • Melinda65

        Can I go, too? (But only if there’s chocolate.)

      • darclyte

        Also in that “sideways” world, the Detroit Lions have won the Super Bowl more than any other NFL team; electric cars are the norm, not the exception; and Miami Vice has become the longest running scripted tv series in history.

    • rebecca

      i agree 100%!! ever since abc cancelled Pushing Daisies, one of the best shows ever, I have hated abc ever since.

      • Bobby’s Robot

        They can redeem themselves ever so slightly by renewing Better Off Ted.

    • deb

      pushing daisies, dirty sexy money, eli stone…ABC was definitely on a bad roll, they finally got something right! Thank You ABC for renewing Castle, my favorite show on TV

      • Matt

        Even though I wasn’t a DSM fan, that was a 1-2-3 MISTAKE! And then, they went and cancelled Ugly Betty this year. ABC is nothing but a bunch of idiots.

      • Borah

        I agree deb. ABC finally did something right in keeping “Castle” after canceling “Pushing Daisies” and “Eli Stone.” “Pushing Daisies” was one of the best shows and now they got it through their heads to let other shows have a chance and the beneficiary is Castle! Hooray!

    • Diana

      ABC cancelled Men In Trees, they can go to hell in my book too! I am rooting for Chuck!!!!!!!!!

  • Jay


    • Kiki

      I agree — Chuck rocks! They continue to shake things up, take risks, and be really and truly weird. What more could a viewer ask?

    • melissa

      Yes, Chuck! It’s my favorite show on TV right now, and I’ll be so sad if it doesn’t get renewed.

      • Nicole

        I love Chuck. It is one of my can’t miss shows. I almost cried when Morgan found out about Chuck and was excited. I didn’t want him to be mad at Chuck. Love IT!

      • SirLizard

        Chuck is at the top of my list too!

    • pop

      CHUCK all the way! it’d really picked in the last few episodes!

    • tvgirl48

      Chuck! Definitely! It’s one of the few shows that willingly takes chances and changes. They could have drawn out the season 1 premise forever, but they’ve evolved and I really love them for it.

      • tvgirl48

        Oh, and seeing Morgan, Awesome, and Casey unite forces to help Chuck win back Sarah was priceless.

    • ObiHave

      CHUCK CHUCK and more CHUCK

    • JosieG

      Put me in for Chuck as well. I’ve been watching since the 1st episode and I’ve never given up on this show. I’m upset the ratings have been sliding. A rerun of HIMYM beat it on Monday. Not good.

  • Brad

    BETTER OFF TED!!!!!! There is SaveBetterOffTed.com and a facebook page with a lot of fans trying to get ABC to save this wonderfully original comedy. I honestly don’t know what I would do without this show. Thank god for TV shows on DVD.

    • Kim from Texas

      Me too!

    • llevinso

      YES!!! I’ve already signed the petition but I encourage all to do so as well. It’s the best show!

    • Aaron Drake

      Gotta save “Ted”!!!!!!!

  • kaytee

    Better Off Ted. The best show no one seems to be watching but me.

  • The Giggle Box

    Better Off Ted. Some of the most consistently funny material on tv. Portia de Rossi is amazing!!

  • Vikki Sixx

    Better Off Ted and Chuck. Chuck is just awesome and Chuck Bartowski has officially surpassed Keith Nelson from Some Kind of Wonderful as my fictional dream man. Better Off Ted is the funniest show on network tv hands down. The last time a network show had me in tears from laughing was.,…ummm…..

    • Nate

      Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. These are the only two remaining bubble shows that I care about. Although I’m pretty sure BOT is done for.

    • WayBeyondSoccerMom

      Ditto. Better Off Ted and Chuck. I want both back. Just tell me where to eat!

    • Melinda65

      I love both Chuck and BOT. I agree that Chuck is pretty awesome–every time I see him this season, I think, “Wow, Zach Levi looks even better this year than last year!” I gotta give Brandon Routh some love because he’s an Iowan and, well, Superman, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, it’s Zach/Chuck all the way.

  • Theresa

    To all those who commented above me: You rock. Those are both amazing shows. And Vikki, I agree, I have a massive crush on Chuck.

  • Nerwen Aldarion


    But Castle was the biggie! Glad to see ABC did something right for once!

    • mdb

      I m with you Nerwen!!! Castle news is fantastic. V next please….

      • Annie

        V all the way!!!

    • KEH

      Sorry if tonight is what “V” was fixed to be. I think they wanted it dead. Editing and pace is flat and they seem to have destroyed all the cool sets and replaced them with Virtual sets rendered on a Wii. I was soo looking forward to V. I fear after tonight it is a short slide into budget PC script management hell.
      ABC spent all the money hyping it and on the original production, then after a few shows of with a message about people adoring a charismatic leader too much and suddenly they under promote it and cut the budget and we have scripts that totally walk away from the orginal premise. And turn Charming Anna into creepy boring Anna. ME smells an agenda at ABC.

  • Cara

    I gotta admit I love Flashforward. It’s got some great, great actors in it, and though I haven’t loved every storyline equally, it’s really got me hooked. I know its chances aren’t huge, but I’m hoping!!!!

    • Lara

      I love FlashFoward too! Hoping it doesn’t get cancelled. Also, I’m rooting for Life Unexpected and Cold Case to not get cancelled.

      • Bernice

        I don’t even understand Life Unexpected being on the bubble. It is consistently one of the best shows on the CW and it has some of their highest ratings. It SHOULD NOT be cancelled.

      • B

        Yes, Bernice, I agree with you. It has better ratings than Gossip Girl, which was already renewed.

      • Ames

        I love Flash Forward too. Not sure why it has so many haters. It’s a pretty solid, consistant show. And more people need to be watching Fringe as well.

  • mike

    Southland Southland Southland I cant say it enough. I love this show

    • Allie

      southland got picked up by another station

    • Nick

      i agree those new eps flew by

  • mdb

    Very very happy about Castle!!!!

    V needs some more love and time to grow – are you listening ABC?

    Caprica is my other choice. Excellent show. I suspect will be back.

  • Fan

    CHUCK! NBC, please just bite the bullet and renew this show no matter what. I will only speak nicely of your network if you do, and that’s saying something!

  • chibby


  • Lara

    Very excited about Castle getting renewed!!!!!! It’s my favorite obsesssion!

    • Lara

      That should be obsession. Guess an extra ‘s’ wanted to sneak in.

  • Jeffrey C

    Gotta be CHUCK!
