Fox, ABC and NBC Cancel More Shows

Mostly, though, the network highlighted its hits.

Show-saving displays of fandoms are one of the most impressive ways TV fans can show their passion.

Joel Lo Truglio tweeted, "We are so grateful for our fans".

Although Crews is happy that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has a new home in NBC, where it could potentially be a better fit among the network's other sitcoms, he admitted to People that he still feels "emotionally drained" after last week's drama. "Both will air Friday nights, "Last Man" at 8", followed by "The Cool Kids" at 8:30 and then the reality show "Hell's Kitchen" at 9. "Twitter exploded in outrage upon receiving news of the show's cancellation, with hashtags such as "#RenewB99" and "#SaveB99". Ellen DeGeneres also will return with "Ellen's Game of Games".

Fox canceled "The Exorcist", "Lucifer", "Last Man on Earth" and "The Mick".

The network's schedule is its first since parent company 21st Century Fox announced that it would sell its TV and movie production assets to the Walt Disney Co.

In addition, Fox dolled out some particularly heavy cuts as the network re-orients its priorities on live sporting events. Not just to us, but to celebrities like Mark Hamill, too, and now Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast member Terry Crews is thanking him for saving the show, which was recently revealed to be saved from cancellation and heading to NBC. It did so well and it certainly did remind us that we have a huge iconic comedy star in our fox family in Tim Allen.

The announcement came as a shock to fans, including a number of famous faces, who took to social media to vent their anger.

The decision to bring back Last Man Standing was made easier by the success of ABC's Roseanne reboot, which some attribute in part to its star's support of President Trump.

For Fox, the show had become very expensive to float with an escalating license fee to producer Universal.

Fox Television Group co-chairs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said during a conference call Monday that the network wanted to pick up the program a year ago but did not have an appropriate spot on the schedule for it. Has your favorite show been put down yet?
