    So, which show(s) do you think will be the get the axe? Add the over/under for more fun.

    For myself, I'm going with Two Broke Girls at 3 eps +/- 1 ep.

    "How To Be A Gentleman" (CBS) - 6-8 episodes
    "Last Man Standing" (ABC) - 10-13 episodes
    "Man Up" (ABC) - 3-4 episodes
    "Pan Am" (ABC) - 2-5 episodes
    "Work It" (ABC) - 1-3 episodes
    "The Playboy Club" (NBC) 6-10 episodes


    There are multiple other shows that I feel will get cancelled, but I'm not as confident on how long it will take.

    I actually think this comedy has the best chance out of all the new comedies at succeeding.

    "Grimm" will be short-lived as it's going up against the established supernatural shows "Fringe" and, er, "Supernatural". I'd guess 4 episodes.

    I'm not really sure what new shows are coming this season but FOX is the undisputed leader of cancelling shows early so I think it will have to be one of theirs.

    I disagree on Ringer... I think it is going to have a run of the full season.

    2 Broke Girls; Under 5 episodes, but then again I was surprised the "!%^!% My father says"

    I wanted to watch Playboy Club mainly for historical reference on maybe what the one in Cincinnati was like (with lots of creative license I'm sure) but the wife put the kibosh on it. I give it 5 episodes.

    I agree on Grimm.
    Up All Night was cute the first episode, but don't think it will make it.

    I agree with you on "Ringer"...

    ... and even though I watched it and enjoyed it, I too was surprised at how long the Shatner project lasted, but unless I've totally misjudged "2 Broke Girls," I expect it to most likely return next year.

    I guess I'll know more after tonight...

    I still haven't watched it yet, but I think it and "Free Agents" will both be goners fairly quick.

    My general recollection is that it's the comedies that get cancelled the most quickly, so I'd guess one or two of these will be gone quickly, most likely on NBC (Whitney, Chelsea, Up All Night...)

    On the other hand, I heard the ratings on the CW's H8R were dismal. Maybe it'll be first.

    My guess is that this year the nets will give their dramas a little more breathing room and give them a half dozen episodes before pulling the plug. Many of these took expensive (Pan Am, Playboy, Grimm, etc) and the nets may be more willing to give them time to find an audience. NBC is especially desperate to find shows that can help re-invent the network.

    Both NBC and ABC have mid-season replacements ready to go, so they will come near pulling the plug first.

    The CW has OTH waiting in the wings, but I doubt they'll air it until next year, leaving only two reality show replacements.

    FOX has some stuff, and CBS has one drama in the wings...

    Whitney 4-5 episodes

    They are advertising it WAY too much to be any good and we have seen this type of show how many times now. Plus it is NBC and they had to give it the Office as a lead.

    I think your right. After viewing the first 15 minutes this morning I deleted the recording. Big disappointment.

    Most of the freshman shows will fail. What would be much harder would be to pick those that will get renewed. "The New Girl" is a ringer I think. Ironically, "Ringer" is not.
