    You’re my hero! Or you would be if Friday Night Lights was on this list.

  2. Clumpy Says:

    As long as Fringe and Parks and Rec are still running I’m happy.

  3. Ryan Says:

    God bless you, Eric D. Snider. I just printed out this list and put it up on my fridge, over the crappy drawing that my daughter drew of a giraffe.

  4. Jimmy Says:

    Damn you, 30 Rock. I was excited for your return this month, and only your return. Okay, Fringe is fine, but otherwise fall TV is not so great.

  5. aaron Says:

    I hadn’t heard that Outsourced got cancelled. That’s awesome. For some reason, it really, really bothered me that they aired that pile of crap the same night as Community, 30 Rock and Parks & Rec.

  6. aaron Says:

    Hmm…I wonder if Bob’s Burgers will come back?

    I’ve seen press releases from April that it was renewed for a 2nd season, but it doesn’t show up in the fall schedules.

    Too bad if it doesn’t make it.

  7. Russ Says:

    “Everything else you loved got canceled and replaced by another Cop Drama or Dancing/Singing Reality Show.”

    Fixed that for you. 😉

    Is there anything new worth watching? You know, a show that Fox would cancel after 1 season.
