There was plenty of great news for fans of ABC dramas and comedies on Thursday (May 7) night as the network picked up new seasons for 10 dramas and six comedies. And ABC also ordered six new dramas and three new comedies.
But whenever there's good news, there's got to be bad news, something about The Law of Conservation of Mass, TV Style. So if the number of primetime hours isn't changing, even if networks are going to try to keep more and more original programming, that still means the axe must fall somewhere.
In this case, there was bad news for "Forever," "Cristela" and "Resurrection. [Yes, two of those titles have become ironic, or at least fodder for lazy headline writers.] The network previously confirmed that "Revenge" was also being canceled. There was also bad news for "The Taste," but somehow I suspect there will be less garment rending over that one.
