The CW TV Series, Minority Report, and other TV shows have all made recent TV show news by being renewed for an additional season, cancelled, or had additional episode orders. These shows air on The CW and Fox.
Bob’s Burgers (Fox)
Bob’s Burgers has quietly reached a milestone very few broadcast series achieve — a sixth season. Fox has ordered a 22-episode sixth season of the show
Bob’s Burgers has not been a ratings hit of the size of The Simpsons and Family Guy but has developed a loyal following despite frequent time slot moves. This past fall, it held 100% of its season premiere rating in Week 2.
Happyland will not be returning to MTV as the cable network has quietly opted not to renew the half-hour-long series for a second season…Happyland averag[ed a] paltry 0.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 370,000 total viewers in the first hour of late-night despite the ratings strength of MTV’s 10-11 PM comedies, especially Happyland‘s lead-in, breakout hit Faking It.
The Flash (The CW)
Jane the Virgin (The CW)
The Originals (The CW)
Reign (The CW)
The 100 (The CW)
Arrow (The CW)
The Vampire Diaries (The CW)
Supernatural (The CW)
The network today gave early renewals to freshmen The Flash and Jane the Virgin for second seasons as well as The Originals (Season 3), Reign (Season 3), The 100 (Season 3), Arrow (Season 4) and veterans The Vampire Diaries (Season 7) and Supernatural (Season 11).
While most of the renewals were non-brainers, Reign and The 100 have been soft in the ratings and were considered bubble shows last season. Jane has not been a ratings breakout either but has drawn the biggest critical praise for a CW series, making it a shoo-in for a pickup.
Not all orders will be for full-season 22 episodes…Of the just renewed series, The 100 had a 16-episode second-season pickup.
America’s Best Dance Crew (MTV)
Catfish: The TV Show (MTV)
Finding Carter (MTV)
Broke A$$ Game Show (MTV)

Broke A$$ Game Show will be premiering on February 5 at 11 ET/PT.
The After (Amazon)
Last February Amazon premiered the pilot episode for Chris Carter’s horror series The After. Shortly after they announced that they would be developing it into a series. Almost a year later Amazon has announced that they’ve changed their mind, and they will no longer be moving forward with the show.
Minority Report (Fox)
Minority Report…continues to sail through the development season with an early pilot order. Fox has given the green light to the project…Also heating up for a pilot order at Fox is another drama with a highly recognizable title, Frankenstein
