'The Shannara Chronicles' Cancelled After Season 2 (2 days ago)
It is being reported that The Shannara Chronicles will not be returning for a third season. The moves comes just days ahead of the launch of Paramount Network, which the show's current network, Spike, is being rebranded to on Thursday.
The fantasy drama started out in 2016 on MTV, where it became the cable network's top-rated scripted original that year. The series made a move to Spike for Season 2, which aired last fall, but ratings were off considerably from what they were in Season 1. With Spike now rebranding to Paramount Network, the show obviously did not fit in with their programming strategy going forward.

NBC Renews 'Ellen's Game Of Games' (7 days ago)
NBC announced today during the TCA winter press tour that Ellen's Game of Games has been renewed for a second season. The prime time game show debuted in December with a special preview episode ahead of its official time slot premiere on January 2.
Just three episodes into its run, the freshman series has been garnering impressive ratings for the network. Last week's back-to-back episodes dominated the adults 18-49 ratings from 8:00pm-10:00pm. That kind of performance is likely the reason NBC wasted no time in ordering up a second season.
