Except for a couple of November premieres, we’ve seen all of the new series this year. You can find reviews of almost all of them in earlier posts in my blog. In a week or so I will post a recap to see if any of my opinions have changed. So far we’ve had our first casualty of the new season. ABC has pulled the plug on “Manhattan Love Story”. It was just a so-so romantic comedy. Also officially canceled are Bad Judge and A to Z but they will be allowed to finish out their 13 episodes. Check out the renewal scorecard in our first link below and save the link for future reference as it is updated. So far I’ve pulled the plug on three series that I’m no longer watching. Selfie lasted two episodes for me. Stalker made it to three episodes before I quit watching although it has been picked up for a full season. And Jane that Virgin I was unable to watch an entire episode before giving up on it. Everything else is either on a “I’m watching” or the jury is still out.
