1. Death knell announced for Without a Trace.  Damn it.  Then again, they claim they had "one slot left" and it went to Numb3rs, which is a shaky sort of relief - in a head-to-head battle, Numb3rs would win EVERY TIME, and I would have actually curled up and died if they had unexpectedly cut what is currently my favorite show off at the knees - but...that's not true, is it, because you gave a slot to Cold Case.  (gosh, I am starting to resent my poor little workhorse show a little bit over it.  Or a lot.  Good thing they already cleared out of town for the year so my rage has nowhere to go.)

I have never been so glad that Numb3rs has a lower overhead.  Perhaps I should stop whining when Amita gets kicked out of episodes.  NEVER!

2. Eleventh Hour - canceled.  Never watched it, but always thought that if I'd had fewer shows on the plate, I might have sought it out for diversion.  It looked better than Fringe.

3. Privileged - canceled.  Never watched that either, but it looked like the best thing on CW's network (which currently has nothing good, as far as I'm concerned).  I still love Joanna Garcia from her Reba days, and once I looked up the premise and found out it wasn't a Gossip Girl clone, I felt much more favorable towards it.  (Relatedly: GG spinoff canceled, you say?  MWA-HA-HA.)

4. Which reminds me, another factor in my Without a Trace cancellation resentment is the fact that CBS magically had a slot for the NCIS spin-off.  Now more than ever, I really want it to crash and burn.  YES.  I AM PROBABLY GOING TO BE WHINING ABOUT WITHOUT A TRACE FOR A WHILE.

5. The Unit - canceled.  Never watched it, but vaguely approved of it on principle, and feel bad for it - I always figured it would carry some longterm staying power.

6. Renewed: How I Met Your Mother (yay!), Rules of Engagement (DIE, killer of The Class!), Gary Unmarried (I want Worst Week!  I don't care if it shut down in December!), and New Adventures of Old Christine (eh.  I'm happy for it, but it's like the only likable show I've ever successfully forgotten to keep watching)

7. Non-crappy news: I feel like I should repeat, one more time, the glorious fact that Numb3rs has been renewed.  I got kind of complacent thinking that it would probably be renewed, but then all of a sudden it was in jeopardy, and it's not like they really needed to wrap that cliffhanger, and...OH GOD NO WHAT IF - *phew*.

8. I really need to stop obsessively tracking upfronts news.

Technically the GG spin off can't be canceled if it never even began. ;-) I love Gossip Girl, but I'm glad that the spin off isn't happening; Brittany Snow and Kelly Rutherford, who are playing the same character at different ages, have very different eye colors. And honestly, that would have driven me crazy, LOL.

Honestly, reading all of this makes me feel very old. I don't think I've watched a single show you've mentioned, o_O.

Well, I mean, the plans to go through with the idea were canceled. (by the way, I love your quibble with it. Nothing about the plot or the premise or anything, just "the eye color discrepancy was too horrible to bear!"?)

The plot and the premise I don't have issues with. I mean it's stupid and totally unnecessary but whatever. In theory it could have been okay. They did show some of that era on the last episode of Gossip Girl in the hopes of attracting viewers that way. And although I wasn't a huge fan, it was passable, and it could have probably been good if they'd had an entire show to actually do what they were trying to do. Certainly, Brittany Snow is a capable actress and is overall likable.

Just don't tell me that this girl can turn into this woman. I would chalk it up to my obsession with stupid details usually related to appearance (I mean who else noticed that during the whole House/Cuddy make out fake out, Cuddy's jacket had a leopard-print lining), but this is a pretty big thing. A person's eyes don't tend to change color when they're, like, 30, LOL.

If you ever want to relive WAT and give me a history lesson, I am interested in a rundown. It was one of those shows I wished I had gotten into earlier and then never did because I felt too far behind, much like Numb3rs.

HIMYM <3 Just watched last nights online, since it DIDN'T RECORD, WUT!

Please don't stop tracking- you are my source :)

*pimps reruns on TNT* If you have cable, you should feel free to start there. As much as I like to swear up and down that procedurals rely on chronology too, I think it probably is a thing you could pick up without strictly keeping in order. This is in no way an excuse for the fact that I can only dimly remember the timeline myself.

But I'll keep that in mind; a trip down nostalgia lane might be fun.

I never watched any of these shows, but I have friends who were into "Eleventh Hour" and "Priviledged".

Aww I'm sad about Eleventh Hour. I thought it was finally finding its footing at the end of the season. I think what really killed is that CBS didn't even give it a chance to put in an effort during May Sweeps and it had its finale back in like early April.

The Unit is a terrible show. It is truly terrible. And yet I'd get sucked into it every time I let the remote land on CBS.

Look at it this way: Since Cold Case is renewed there will be more Kat being acerbic and sarcastic at Nick thus allowing me to ship them even more. Bright side!

Eleventh Hour: I agree; the early finale (esp. to make way for Harper's Island) was a poor choice in all sorts of ways.

Unit: What do you mean, terrible? That is an all-star male ensemble right there; I assumed it couldn't go wrong with that.

CC: That's true. I will remember this fact come September.
