Cancellations, Renewals and New Shows – Oh My!

This year’s TV Upfronts brought some major heartbreak along with a string of new shows. ABC was particularly ruthless, giving favorites like The Muppets, MARVEL’s Agent Carter and Castle the axe. Fox saved Sleepy Hollow despite the loss of Nicole Beharie, and decided that quirky freshman comedy The Grinder would rest for good. Kristin and I went over the highs and lows of the cancellations and renewals over last week. Listen in now:
