Is your favorite new TV show going to survive the fall cut? Networks are currently in the process of swinging the ax and granting second chances for the Fall 2013 season and we’ve got the rundown on what’s being renewed and what’s being canceled.
“Agents Of SHIELD” – PICKED UP FOR FULL SEASON
ABC picked up “Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD” for a full season after the new series became the network’s highest-rated drama debut since 2009. However, it’s important to note that its ratings and audience has dropped since its premiere hype died down. So far, a second season is still up in the air.
“Back In The Game” -- ???
The new ABC comedy doesn’t have the worst ratings (1.8 between 18-49 for the week of Oct. 17), but ABC has yet to make a decision regarding the show.
“Betrayal” -- ???
“Betrayal” more than likely won’t make the cut. The series had a 13-episode order but it’s unclear if ABC will let the drama finish its run with its low viewership and ratings. As TV Guide pointed out, “Betrayal only drew 2.9 million and a 0.8 for its third episode – and last year the failed drama “666 Park Avenue” was able to grab 4.8 million and a 1.5 at the same timeslot.
“Once Upon A Time In Wonderland” -- ???
Heading into its second episode on Thursday, Oct. 17, the “Once Upon a Time” spinoff’s fate is still up in the air.
“Super Fun Night” -- ???
The Rebel Wilson lead comedy will more than likely be picked up but no official announcement has been made yet.
“The Blacklist” – PICKED UP FOR FULL SEASON
NBC announced at the beginning of October that the freshman drama was picked up, adding nine episodes for a full 22-episode season. “The Blacklist” has been at the top in its time period.
“Welcome To The Family” – CANCELED
After three weeks on the air, comedy “Welcome To The Family” was canceled. The show will not be running its remaining episodes and will instead by replaced by “Parks and Recreation” and holiday programming.
“Sean Saves The World” – ???
NBC has ordered 4 additional scripts for “Sean Saves The World” but the comedy is still not in the clear.
“The Michael J. Fox Show” – PICKED UP FOR FULL SEASON
“The Michael J. Fox Show” received a 22-episode order, making it a full season pick up – but no word on season 2 renewal.
“Ironside” – CANCELED
Like “Welcome to the Family,” “Ironside” was canceled after three weeks. However NBC will be airing a one final episode on Wednesday, Oct. 23. Following that the network will be running “Dateline” reruns until “Chicago P.D.” premieres on Jan. 8.
“Dads” -- ???
“Dads” received a lot of hype before premiering due to racial and sexual remarks and it seemed to work out in their favor because Fox gave the green light for six more scripts. While no official announcement on a pick-up has been made, E! Online is reporting that the Seth MacFarlane series is “on course to get picked up for a full season.”
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” – PICKED UP FOR FULL SEASON
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” fans can continue watching the Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher comedy on Tuesday nights. Fox added nine episodes to the series, bringing it to a 22-episode order.

CBS pulled the freshman comedy “We Are Men” after two episodes. Filling its spot will be new episodes of “Mike & Molly” starting Monday, Nov. 4.
“Hostages” – ???
CBS has yet to reveal the fate of their Monday night drama, “Hostages.” Only designed to be a 15-episode run, it’s likely that the network will let the series finish airing its remaining episodes, but Deadline reports that it’s possible the show might move to a “less trafficked spot on the schedule, with no further cycles.”
“The Originals” -- ???
“The Vampire Diaries” spinoff series, “The Originals,” received an order for three additional scripts. However the series has yet to be picked up for a full season or receive a renewal for season 2.
