Cable Show Scorecard: August 2012


This month's scorecard brings a lot of changes, unfortunately for me none of them involve making this list any shorter. There were quite a few renewals and quite a few cancellations (official announcements and the 8+ month variety). There were also some shows that went on or off hiatus (for the ones that came off hiatus and are airing now they aren't on the list. If they are on hiatus appropriate designations and comments have been made).

As with last month any announcements that come in today (which should be anything that happens in the next 3-4 hours) will be added in this post. Anything that happens tomorrow and beyond will go in next month's post.

If you like you can read the posts from May, June and July here.

Renewed Shows
Anger Management (FX) [This is for 90 episodes but no word on how they will be broken up]
Baby Daddy (ABC Family)
Bar Rescue (Spike)
Braxton Family Values (WE) [The episodes airing now are technically an extension of the already super-sized season 2. This here is the official season 3 renewal]
Bunheads (ABC Family) [This is only for the 2nd half of season 1 and ABC Family is hinting at a January return for this. Any decision for a season 2 renewal will come sometime after those episodes start airing]
Couples Therapy (VH1)
Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution (Comedy Central)
Hoarders (A&E) [This is renewed for a season 6 which was supposed to start August 13th. A&E announced today that the show will return September 10th]
It’s a Brad, Brad World (Bravo)
Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best (WE)
La La’s Full Court Life (VH1)
Louie (FX)
Melissa & Joey (ABC Family)
Money From Strangers (MTV)
Paranormal Witness (Syfy)
Perception (TNT)
Restaurant Stakeout (Food) [Food Network never made an official renewal announcement for this however it returns tonight (August 29th) and all of the new episodes are designated as season 2 episodes]
Single Ladies (VH1)
Snooki & JWOWW (MTV)
Switched at Birth (ABC Family) [To clarify, this is for season 2. The episodes premiering next week are the last episodes of season 1]
The Pitch (AMC) [I’ll admit to being wrong on this one but AMC knew this had bad ratings. The premiere had 143,000 viewers and 0.0 in the demo, that’s why it got moved to 11pm. They are also saying it will probably be next summer before this returns so they could actually rethink this one or still try to pull some shady scheduling. Critical acclaim only does so much.]

Undecided/On Hiatus Shows
1000 Ways to Die (Spike) [Last new episode: April]
16 & Pregnant (MTV) [Last new episode: June]

3 Days to Open With Bobby Flay (Food) [Last new episode: August 17th]
7 Days of Sex (Lifetime) [Last new episode: June]
After the Runway (Lifetime) [Last new episode: October (I’m giving this one more month. I went back and looked at previous scheduling of this and it indicates that Lifetime doesn’t make the call for this until the last 4-5 episodes of the season. This current season has 14 episodes and has only aired 6 so far so it would still be too early to see if this is a goner or not)]

I really, really like work of art. Sorry to read that it's been canceled.

I see that Fairly Legal is on the bubble. This show can't be missed.

I think there might be a flying piggybank blimp protest if my favorite legal show is axed.

It seems to me like quite a few networks, namely USA, Bravo and MTV seem to have way more bubble shows than they know what to do with and that is what is taking so long for them to make their decisions.

Meanwhile all three are still airing shows and most of those are getting bubble type numbers as well. They can't keep waiting too long though, especially on the scripted shows because of the time it takes to produce them.
