ABC Bubble Bloodbath: 'V,' 'Brothers & Sisters,' 'No Ordinary Family' canceled

13 May 2011 1:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just days after Fox decimated its entire stack of bubble shows, ABC has nearly repeated the trick, clearing out at least five dramas and two comedies to make room for a heaping pile of fresh pickups.   We'll get to the pickups, which include "Charlie's Angels" and more, in a separate story, but first let's mourn the passing of "Brothers & Sisters," "V," "No Ordinary Family," "Detroit 1-8-7," "Off the Map," "Mr. Sunshine" and "Better With You," which have all been given their walking papers, according to a wide variety of media reports.   The biggest surprise of that group was "Brothers & Sisters." As recently as last week, there were reports that the long-running Emmy-winning drama might return for a truncated sixth season, possibly with only a limited dose of Calista Flockhart. Instead, ABC has opted not to renew the family drama, which earned Sally Field an Emmy and ran for 109 episodes, ending with what was now a series finale last Sunday. Sci-fi fans also had hopes for "V," which struggled in its two seasons, but was also bounced around ABC's schedule with an aggressiveness that led some people to believe that with a stable time slot and premiere date and episode order, it might develop an audience »

ABC drops 'Brothers & Sisters,' 'V'

13 May 2011 12:23 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Hey, the time was near: EW has learned that ABC has dropped Brothers & Sisters, its family night drama that has served as a lead-out to Desperate Housewives for years.

The drama’s finale earned a 2.0 rating/5 share in adults 18-49, up 25% from the previous week. (It averaged 7.1 million viewers). That was the drama’s best performance in two months. Still, the ratings for the show that launched in 2006 just haven’t been what they used to be, and the actors have indicated a willingness to say goodbye. Matthew Rhys told EW in January that ”we’ve run a lot of extreme stories and big stories, »

'V' producer on second-season finale: 'The best of the show is ahead'

15 March 2011 8:14 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

If all goes according to executive producer Scott Rosenbaum’s plan, tonight’s V season finale will be a hugely dramatically satisfying hour — and will still leave viewers wanting more.

That choice, to end V with a cliffhanger despite being very much on the bubble for a renewal, was made back in October. In the middle of production, ABC told Rosenbaum that the show’s order was being reduced to 10 episodes, leaving the writer-producer with little time to figure out how to finish up Season 2.

“We had been given an initial episode order of 13, so I had planned a 22-episode season, »

V's Out-of-This-World Mommy Dearest

4 January 2011 1:46 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Talk about mommy issues! When V returns for Season 2 tonight at 9/8c on ABC, we learn that Anna (Morena Baccarin) has been imprisoning her equally sinister reptilian mother, Diana (Jane Badler, from the original V), in a dungeon aboard her spaceship for the past 15 years. We asked Baccarin to quiz Badler about lizards, family values and her new incarnation.
