      I have a long history of liking shows that NO ONE else likes. There was a show called Drive, starring Nathan Fillion (Castle) that lasted only 3 episodes. I loved that show!

      This season, it was The Cape. I thought it was an excellent job of doing silly comics as a drama, and the villains and side characters were very entertaining. Gone, of course.

        Say it ain't so! I thought the Cape was on break. I didn't know it was canceled. I loved that show.

    It's not just about ratings, it's about ratings for a given time slot and the demographic breakdown of viewers. A show on Saturday night can get half the ratings of a Thursday night show and still stay on the air. I'll admit Mike and Molly is dreadful, but it appeals to people in the 18-49 age group (#25 in that age group, none of the other shows you named made the list) and I'm sure food companies do well advertising during that show. Sure, it's some of the laziest writing on TV, but so is Two and a Half Men and that's been on for what, 10 years?

    For overall ratings, Rules of Engagement was the only one you named that made the top 25 last week (coming in at, you guessed it, #25), so clearly ratings are a factor, and the ratings for the shows you like just aren't very good.

    I think the writers strike a few years back absolutely killed broadcast TV. The networks just said "screw it" and decided to put most of their eggs in the reality show basket, and the ratings have shown that's what works. 4 of the shows in the ratings top 5 for last week were some form of reality show. Most of the scripted shows I watch are on cable, so about the only time I'm watching network television in prime time is on Thursday nights, when NBC has a killer lineup of comedies: Community, The Office, Parks & Recreation, and 30 Rock.

    I just hope they keep " Chicago Code ". Otherwise not to much on TV I am enamored with.

            SOH I might have to take you up on that. Especially if there is no NFL season.

    Wait, The Defenders was canceled? I am so sad now!!! I loved that show. I just saw a Broadway show that Jim Belushi is starring in and I was wondering how long it's going to run since The Defenders is filmed in L.A. Oh well, guess I have my answer now :-( That show was awesome! CW also canceled Hellcats on me and now I really hate them. They canceled that amazing show but keep renewing One Tree Hill which is probably the worst tv show in history? I hate the tv networks sometimes!

    Unless it is a top 10 hit, it may or may not be around.
    The TV market is so obsessed with certain age groups. It doesn't matter if they receive more viewers for a show because of the 50 and over group...if the "prime age" do not watch it, it is gone.

    Plus, they all want to make shows that are cheaper to make.
    I can see it now..."Made in China- New NBC fall schedule, Made in Mexico-NEW CBS Hit show coming this fall, or Made in Taiwan-ABC Sure Smash hit Fall Schedule." lol

    I think they need to cancel it all and start clean.   smile  I pretty "watch" only night-time TV, and I "watch" that with the sound off.  The writing is best that way, and at least the house doesn't feel like a morgue.   lol  I do turn the sound up a little when the late-night shows come on, and do pay attention to about ten minutes' worth of whatever show is on.  These days I "watch" most TV news (except for the big stuff and the nitty-gritty weather part) with the sound off too.  roll

    Since Happy Days went off the air, TV has been a disappointment

      Don't worry, you can still see The Fonz selling denture adhesives and adult diapers on late night commercials.

    Then stop watching Fox or NBC I guess,
    They seem to love to do that!
