CBS Cancels The Defenders, $#*! My Dad Says, Mad Love

Deadline is reporting that CBS has come down with its first round of cancellations in the form of midseason comedy Mad Love, William Shatner starrer $#*! My Dad Says, and the Jim Belushi/Jerry O’Connell legal drama The Defenders. Said to be up in the air is Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, while Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-O, and Blue Bloods are locks to return for their second seasons.

Starring Jason Biggs, Sarah Chalke, Judy Greer, and Tyler Labine, Mad Love debuted midseason and followed the similar How I Met Your Mother. $#*! My Dad Says provided the network with a lot of buzz for the profanity in its title, but it wrapped its season up early in February due to lower than expected ratings. The show was based on a popular twitter account of the same name. The Defenders had performed pretty decently on Fridays, but its poor performance on Wednesdays sealed its fate as the second CBS drama to be canceled this season, following Chaos.

CBS had previously canceled Chaos, Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance, and Medium.

Are you upset by any of these cancellations? What do you think will replace each show? How do you think CBS’s schedule will shape up this week?

    I liked The Defenders just haven't had time to watch lately. Thanks for making me feel guilty. LOL

    I don't really care about the other two. sorry. I really wished they hadn't canceled Medium at least one more season would have been nice.

  • Flash Back

    I'm quite happy to see all of these shows (CM:SB included) but especially Shatner's one, die quick deaths. The rest I have no interest in viewing as they're so derivative.

    I actually liked Chaos and the Defenders.  Now we'll probably end up with more "reality" TV or more peoplye trng to dance.  Whoopee!i

  • Diana

    I think that they should have kept the Defenders.  It should have been in Mediums old slot or Saturday night at eight O clock.  I would have cancelled Survivor and Big Brother.   I do not ever watch Survivor and Big Brother is boring to watch.
