    The Chicago code was my favorite new show. Didn't watch any of the others though.

    Definitely upset about The Chicago Code and Human Target. I liked Breaking In and in the beginning Lie to Me was very good. Lie to Me started to fall off the wayside when it became the "Cal saves the day" show.

    I'll miss Human Target. Cancellation was expected after they moved the broadcast day and time around so much. :mad:

    BUMMER.

    Chicago Code, Human Target, Breaking In, Lie To Me, and Traffic Light were all shows we watched and enjoyed.

    Not to mention the drastic format change. It was a good show. :(

    Serious bummer...

    I already thought Chicago Code was cancelled...

    Human Target was a very fun show...

    As for Breaking In.... It was only 6 shows into the series?

    The short leash on these shows is just insane.
    They have to REALLY look at how they do the calculations and get those threshold numbers up to date.

    With the volume of choice and DVRs out there... the 1970's way of calculating the success of a show has to go out the window.

    And the last one was excellent. It was really starting to get its legs.

    I thought Traffic Light was very funny as well.

    These were 2 of my favorite shows. Oh welll.

    I like this show so much, I've been buying them from Amazon VOD. This is terrible news, I hope TNT or another cable network picks it up for another season

    I didn't think it was that drastic. By having a rich boss, it just allowed them to do the same thing, but with some new toys... And I did like the new cast members...

    Wow! I thought Chicago Code was doing well. It is a great show. And I loved Human Target as well. It was very fun.
