America’s Next Top Model (it’s new day)

Please correct: should be (its new day)

Bruce Simmons November 10, 2012 at 10:31 am

Judy, if I recall, I remember writing about BODY OF PROOF somewhere on the site that it is coming back in mid-season… so I’m thinking pretty soon. Keep your eyes peeled!

Judy November 10, 2012 at 10:28 am

Do u know when Body Of Proof is going to be back. This stinks that it’s not on now. Love the show.

CAROL SLOVAK September 30, 2012 at 7:17 am

I AM SO SAD THAT CSI MIAMI WAS CANCELLED IT WAS ONE OF MY FAVS I AM REALLY GOING TO MISS IT

KBC September 15, 2012 at 10:01 pm

Can’t believe Pan Am was cancelled Loved the show

Joan Rodriguez September 15, 2012 at 9:29 am

Your lists are really helpful. Thanks!

Bruce Simmons September 8, 2012 at 12:44 pm

LF & et al: BODY OF PROOF, WIFE SWAP, and new shows RED WIDOW and ZERO HOUR will be returning/premiering mid-season of the 2012-2013 TV season.

Bruce Simmons September 8, 2012 at 12:41 pm

LF: From what I can tell, BODY OF PROOF has not been cancelled… but I’m not sure about air dates… I’m looking into it and will let ya’ know what I find out.

L F September 7, 2012 at 6:04 pm

WHERE IS BODY OF PROOF AND ARE THEY BRINGING IT BACK? IF SO, WHEN? AND IF NOT WHY?

Bruce Simmons September 5, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Sorry Jen, but yes, MISSING was cancelled.

Jen September 5, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Is the ABC show “Missing” with Ashley Judd really not returning for another season?

Sean September 4, 2012 at 6:14 pm

What a dissapontment to find out “The Firm” was cancelled. It was one of best shows on TV and well written. Josh Lucas and the rest of the actors made that show worth watching each week. What a shame to hear it was cancelled.

Chris August 25, 2012 at 10:02 am

We cannot believe “A Gifted Man”, “Missing”, and there was another one on Wed.7 pm that starred, I think her name was Katherine Bates, that was redicul0usly cancelled.

vicki August 20, 2012 at 8:11 pm

i cant believe they would cancel Ringer. This is rediculous…..

karen July 27, 2012 at 11:29 am

What day will Body of Proof televised?

Bruce Simmons July 21, 2012 at 12:24 pm

THE FIRM was cancelled… you can check the status of other shows over at [http://brusimm.com/2012-2013-tv-series-renewalcanceled-list-for-abc-cbs-fox-nbc-cw/]

nell July 21, 2012 at 8:47 am

Is the firm coming back?

Bruce Simmons July 11, 2012 at 3:14 pm

I’m sorry to say Pat, but RINGER was cancelled…

Pat July 11, 2012 at 3:00 pm

What happen to Ringer you shouldn’t leave the fans dangeling.

Pat July 11, 2012 at 2:57 pm

What happen to Ringer? Couldn’t it be rescued? Why leave us hanging?
It’s like Beautiful People the worst possible thing to happen, what would
have been a season finale ended the show, everything dangeling.

John July 7, 2012 at 6:03 am

On ABC Daytime could General Hospital move to 11AM and The View to 1PM lead-in of new Katie and Good Afternoon America?

John July 7, 2012 at 6:00 am

Could TNT pick up Rescue Me from FX and put the Drama on its new Wednesday lineup?

John July 7, 2012 at 5:58 am

What are the odds Brothers and Sisters will return on NBC paired with Parenthood? A Wednesday night Family Night would be a nice change.

shirley June 28, 2012 at 7:14 am

what happened to body of proof?

Bruce Simmons June 11, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Hey Dr. Y; usually I do multiple formats with listings, but being a one-man show, this is all I have for ya! If I get a chance, I’ll try to make a second version! Thanks for the feedback Dr. Y! – Bruce

Dr Y June 11, 2012 at 4:30 pm

It is a far more usable format to make the list by the day with all the networks and times shown.

Bruce Simmons June 9, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Just follow along Carrsellea and when I know the specific dates, I will be adding another post.

Carrsellea Tucker June 9, 2012 at 9:23 am
