It's that time of year when networks decide on their new Fall 2012 season line-up. But with good news comes bad, and announcements for new shows are often accompanied by a list of shows getting the axe. This year, we'll need to say goodbye to some of our favorite Latino stars and their canceled tv shows.
CSI: Miami: After 10 seasons and over 200 episodes, CBS is canceling the hit show. The bad news is that Hot Guy Adam Rodriguez is out of a steady gig. But the good news is that, thanks to syndication, we'll still be able to watch him in reruns (swoon). Production for the show was getting too expensive for the network to handle, so it had to go. CSI and CSI: NY are still safe... for now.
GCB: As much fun as the cast seemed to have filming this (Marisol Nichols told Latina it's "pure, delicious, guilty-pleasure television"), ABC wasn't impressed with the ratings. This may not be the end, however, because dedicated fans started an online petition to keep ths show around. I guess we'll have to see what happens.
Awake: Well, Wilmer Valderrama's return to our tv screens was short-lived! This series is gone after only 13 episodes. Ratings continued to plummet each week, making it one of the lowest-rated shows on NBC. They had to do it (but that doesn't mean we like it)!
Rob: The only surprise here is for those who never knew this existed and have now learned that Rob Schneider was starring in a show on CBS. The premise was Rob marrying into a Mexican-American family, but it never gained much of an audience so it's out.
NYC 22: Another new series for CBS didn't fare so well. It starred comedian Adam Goldberg and Leelee Sobieski, but Judy Marte of Raising Victor Vargas and On the Outs is the star we're definitely going to miss.
Check out TheInsider.com for a full list of canceled shows, as well as shows that were renewed and those whose fates are still unknown. New shows premiering this fall are still in the works, but hopefully we can find a few Latinos to support within the line-up.
Are you sad to see any of these shows go?
