The body count was highest at about-to-be-sold The CW, which axed seven series this week, including Legacies, Charmed, 4400, Naomi, Roswell, New Mexico, In the Dark and Dynasty.
CBS shuttered nearly a half dozen programs, including Magnum P.I, B Positive and Good Sam, while NBC pulled the plug on three (including comedies Mr. Mayor and Kenan).
Fox, meanwhile, parted ways with two series, Our Kind of People and Pivoting.
Miraculously, ABC — which in recent years has had some of the largest cancellation hauls — brought back all five of its remaining scripted bubble shows.
