'Roseanne' Spin-off Confirmed For This Fall (2 weeks ago)
Less than a month after cancelling the Roseanne revival, ABC has confirmed that a spin-off featuring the rest of the cast will take its place this fall in the 8:00pm Tuesday time slot. The move had been expected for some time, as the network was looking for a way to continue the success of the Roseannecomeback, which impressively became the top comedy on television.
Expected to be called The Conners, the new series will take place following "a sudden turn of events" that will explain the removal of Roseanne from the show. The rest of the family will continue to tackle daily working-class life in Lanford - only in a completely new way.
Expect the feel of the new show to remain mostly the same, as the existing writing and producing team will also transition over to The Conners. ABC has ordered 10 episodes of the show, which is down from the 13 episodes ordered for Season 2 of Roseanne. Look for the premiere later this year.
AMC Cancels 'Comic Book Men' (2 weeks ago)
It looks like Comic Book Men has reached the end of the road. Star and producer Kevin Smtih confirmed the sad news on his Instagram story yesterday, with a graphic stating the show has been cancelled, and a note referring fans to his podcast network, SModcast, for more on the story.
Filmmaker, director, and actor Kevin Smith owns comic shop "Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash" in Red Bank, NJ, where the series is filmed. A comic book fanboy himself, Smith partakes in daily banter with the store's staff and its customers as they discuss all aspects of pop culture artifacts and iconic celebrities from the fanboy world. Memorabilia is bought and sold, and adventures are had away from the store, all of which is shared by the men of The Stash with Kevin via their podcast, which is woven throughout the show's episodes.

Cancelled By FOX – No Season 2
Ghosted‘s cancellation had been considered a foregone conclusion but Fox postponed the decision until after the comedy returned for the remainder of its freshman season earlier this month. With the options on the cast expiring this coming weekend, the network was prompted to act.

As could be expected for most summer scripted series, Ghosted‘s deliveries have been soft, between 1.1-1.4 million viewers and 0.4-0.5 adults 18-49 rating (Live+same day).
