    From Yahoo

    I was just about to post that it looks like Dollhouse won't make it as per some TV.com rumbelings, opened up IE and this was the featured story on Yahoo.

    If they want to count shows that never even aired, add The Oaks to that list. From last years upfronts, that show sounded pretty damn good, but Fox canned it before it even aired. after it was given the green light.

    Of those 10:

    Life & Fringe : Really like them.

    Better Off Ted/Kings/Dollhouse/Southland/The Unusuals : Have them all as a SL, but haven't watched any of them yet, so can't really comment. If they get canceled, I have a few shows to delete.

    Chuck/Terminator: Gave up on both long ago.

    Rock of Love/Celebrity Apprentice: No interest.

    Gave up on Chuck two or three episodes in the first season. Heard it got better, I didn't believe them...

    The only two I'd really miss are Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I like them both quite a bit.

    Never watched any of the others.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I love Chuck, Fringe and The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
    Dollhouse could have been much better. I won't miss it at all!

    I put 'Celebrity Apprentice' on twice the season and was so impressed with it that I fell asleep during the show. I am not even sure who was sent packing.
    Personally, I won't miss it!!

    I would especially miss Life, as it's one of my favorite shows. I'd miss The Sarah Conner Chronicles and Fringe too. I haven't watched most of the others, and those I have I wouldn't miss.

    If only one can be saved, please don't cancel Life!!!

    I would have a lot more space on my DVR if I would either get around to watching Chuck (I have all eps) or just delete it. Wife thinks I might like it, but she didn't.

    Didn't see Castle on the list which is good as we really like that show.

    I like both "Chuck" and "Better Off Ted" a lot...but I'm kind of numb to this whole experience after so many years of so many shows I've liked being canceled. So excuse me if I don't sign any online petitions, or mail things to the network executives.

    I'm not sure about the "Deserve to Return" label, as you could make a pretty good case to terminate most of them for one reason or another.

    In the end, its typically about ratings...so we'll have to see what happens.

    I absolutely LOVE Better off Ted. I really hope it doesn't go away. Would like to see Terminator and Dollhouse stay around to, but really when does Fox actually give a show any chance.

    I watch 5 of the 10 shows within a day after recording them:

    Chuck
    Fringe
    Better Off Ted
    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
    Kings

    I've recorded Southland and The Unusuals, but haven't watched yet. It seems many of the shows I like usually end up in the Nielsen basement, but I like to be stimulated and the networks are just starting to fade for me ...

    Would love to see Fringe, Dollhouse & Kings return (though doubtful on the latter two). I have yet to watch the premiers of Southland and The Unusuals.

    I watch Chuck, Fringe and Dollhouse. I wouldn't miss Fringe that much, and I'm getting to really like Dollhouse, but Chuck, that show rocks. I never even guessed it was on the bubble. It seems like it has a decent following, and it's always fresh. It will be a sad day at the Buy More if this is the last season for Chuck.

    I gave up on Life after the first three episodes, it didn't hold my interest, Sarah Connor Chronicles was okay, but when Fox moved it from Sunday to Monday nights it conflicted with Big Bang Theory and Chuck, and I like both much better then Sarah Conner. Never cared to tune back in when they moved it to Friday. And Kings, the previews made the show look better then it is.

    NBC's Ben Silverman love's Chuck. He might be able to make a case to keep it as what else are they going put on Monday. And since House is a co-production of Heel and Toe Films, Shore Z Productions, and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with the NBC Universal Television Group for FOX, maybe they'll let him keep it as NBCU has a stream of cash coming in from two shows on Monday at 8pm.

    Fringe - Gave up on it ... too many monsters.
    Conners - Watch it, but starting to tire of Mom's depressing obsession with John.
    Dollhouse - Watch it. Starting to think Joss wrote himself into a dead-end.
    Apprentice - Wife watches it religiously. Cluttering up my archive disk, too.
    Chuck/Life/Rock/Kings/Better Off - Don't watch.
    Southland/Unusuals - I'd appreciate a chance to judge for myself, thankyouverymuch!
