Guess The First Broadcast Scripted Show To Be Canceled In The 2021-22 Season (Poll)


There can be only one! (first TV show to be canceled).

The 2021-22 broadcast season starts Monday, September 20, so it’s time to guess which new broadcast primetime scripted show will be canceled first.

For the purposes of this poll, a show has been canceled if:

  • it’s removed from its original timeslot
  • its episode order is reduced
  • the network acknowledges it won’t order any more than the initial 13 episodes

As you may have noticed, networks have kept doomed ratings losers on the air longer than before, usually because they’ve got nothing to replace them with.

What’s your guess for this season’s first show to be canceled?

Included in the poll are all “rookie” broadcast scripted shows currently scheduled to premiere before January, 2022.

The 2019-20 poll winner Bob Hearts Abishola was a big miss, but finishers 2-4 Sunnyside, Bluff City Law & Emergence were all canceled early!

As they say in Chicago, vote early, vote often.
