    I liked The Chicago Code and am shocked it wasn't picked up for a full season.

    Human Target was good too.

    Aaaaargh! Obviously they HAVE to cancel the shows with even a modicum of intelligence:mad::(:confused: Hubby and I love Traffic Light....the writing, the humor is so subtle, the little nuances about relationships that they hit spot on.... How sad. Chicago Code is also so well written......wow, I am just blown away. They'll probably replace them by some inane, brainless "Reality" show that costs 40% less to produce, and bears no resemblance whatsoever to actual reality.

    NBC is said to have renewed Parenthood and Harry's Law. And most likely Chuck.

    Wow, I have never even heard of any of those shows. I guess I really don't ever watch network TV anymore.

    Chicago code was pretty solid, I hadn't kept up with it recently but I liked the layers of building intrigue in the first few episodes.

    What about Outsourced and **** My Dad Says? Are those coming back? I think I'm the only one who liked **** My Dad Says, so I don't know if I should expect it back, but I think Outsourced did pretty well.

    Dang.. this sucks!!

    Traffic Light was an awesome show! I wonder if another network could pick it up? It's got some great stuff on there.

    Aaaaand Chicago Code is the latest reason (after Firefly, Studio 60, and others...) why I don't get invested in a new series until after season 2. These studios don't know a damn thing about what they are doing...

    WTF, Bob's Burgers got renewed? Fox still owes me 30 minutes of my life back for watching that garbage.

    Can't say that was surprising. They drew out the shows more than LOST did. :D It should've been 2 seasons max.

    Ya I could not watch more than 5 minutes of the pilot. How they keep that show and cancel some of the other stuff doesn't make sense. They must not have anything better to put on Sunday night.

    How I Met Your Mother was renewed, which doesn't surprise me, but personally I don't find it funny AT ALL. I actually feel embarrassed for Neil Patrick Harris as he was a lot better in Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long-Blog and that was web only.

    I try to get into HIMYM but the comedy seems forced and childish.

    It's definitely starting to lose steam (don't most comedies after 6 years?). But this is one of my favorite shows of all time. Lately, the comedy is a little more predictable, but in some of the original seasons, I thought a lot of it was quite brilliant. It might help that I really relate to the characters a bit. Of course, I don't watch any of the shows you listed above, so we just have different tastes.
