Ahead of my regular monthly articles, I bring you an update with the latest TV and Streaming renewals and cancellations. Starting next month I will be splitting streaming from TV and adding movies to the TV monthly and Amazon Prime shows to the streaming monthly. My monthly article will be Boob Tubes And Silver Screens Monthly (for TV, Cable and Movies) and The Streamer Monthly (for streaming services).

 

2 Broke Girls

The sitcom starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, has been canceled after ending season 6 on a cliffhanger.

It is said the cancellation is  due to it’s poor ratings. Unfortunately CBS has a bad habit of constantly moving around their sitcoms so you don’t know when they are on, and instead of showing reruns, when there weren’t new episodes, they put other shows in its place so you had no idea when the show was on or when new episodes would air. There are also always large gaps between new episodes on all their shows.

A show that has run as long as 2 Broke Girls has, should get a proper series finale and not end on a cliffhanger. This is very reminiscent of A&E canceling The Glades after four seasons (despite it having good ratings) and leaving the lead character Jim Longworth’s fate in doubt as he is shot by an unknown assailant as he is preparing a new house as a wedding gift before he is married to the woman of his dreams.

Baby Daddy

Fans of the long running sit-com on FreeForm (formerly ABC Family) were blindsided when it was announced Baby Daddy wouldn’t finish season 6 as ABC decided not to order six more episodes to finish the season out in favor of spending resources on a Black-ish spin-off.

The 100th episode of Baby Daddy, which airs May 22, will be the last episode. Fortunately Dan Berendsen penned that 100th episode to serve as a series finale as he wasn’t sure the of the show’s renewal, so hopefully fans will get some closure. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)

Timeless

 

 

The NBC time-travel show was originally canceled earlier this week, the studio Sony TV fought hard to have it renewed for another season and it will return sometime next year. The show is co-created by Eric Kripke who created the long running Supernatural and the post-apocalyptic show Revolution. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)
