A few updates from Ausiello’s cheat sheet

Michael Ausiello is keeping track of all the cancellation and renewal news. Here are a few updates:

Castle: Could go either way. Now a safe bet.
The Unit: A long shot. Now hearing it’s a goner. Back to being a long shot.
Dollhouse: Could go either way. Now hearing it’s a long shot.
Fringe: Sure thing. Now officially renewed.
Chuck: Could go either way. Now a safe bet. (Yay!)
Life: A long shot. Now hearing it’s a goner. Now officially canceled.
Medium: Safe bet. Reportedly renewed for 13-16 episodes.
Southland: Sure thing. Officially renewed for 13 episodes.

I gave up “Life” last season when it failed to stand out, and I gave up on “Chuck” this season as it got too repetitive and silly. I know that there are a lot of “Chuck” fans out there that will be happy to see that it will likely return in the fall. “Medium” has been good this season and deserves renewal, as does “The Unit,” though it’s worrisome to hear that it’s a long shot.

TV Roundup: Shorter seasons for “Heroes,” ABC shows in limbo and more

– NBC wants shorter seasons from “Heroes,” according to AdAge.com. The network is looking for 18 to 20 episodes instead of the usual 25, with fewer in-season breaks. I’m all for shorter seasons, as shorter usually equals better.

– ABC has renewed “Lost,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” — no surprises there — “Brothers & Sisters,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Ugly Betty” and “Private Practice,” but “Cupid,” “Better Off Ted,” “Castle,” “Scrubs,” “Samantha Who?” and “The Unusuals” are still in limbo. TV.com thinks that “Castle” has the best chance of surviving.
