TV'S HOT RENEWALS & CANCELLATIONS
By Crystal Mello
Well it’s that time of year again to see which of our favorite and not-so-favorite shows are here to stay for the duration of 2012 (and continue their run for 2013). The list of shows that have gotten the axe is long! Here are our thoughts on the schedule shake-up.
I wanted to start with a farewell to one of my favs and I’m really sad to see it go after it’s 10-year run: CSI: Miami. I loved the cheesy one liners from Lieutenant Horatio Caine and the always club-bumping music in the opening scenes while we gazed at the beautiful views of Miami. Ahh...at least we still have CSI & CSI NY.

Although I'm a bit surprised, 2 Broke Girls is not on this list. This show is definitely an acquired taste! Its raunchy humor comes off a bit tasteless at times but then again, not every show has to be so serious. I can relate to the show- living in a big city, with little money, and trying to pursue my dreams... not to mention my roommate is blonde & I’m brunette. Add my Boston attitude and her rural Jersey charm and we definitely could have been cast for this renewed hit. Check out our photo-op at the studio backlot and eat your heart out CBS!
