The body count was highest on the for-sale The CW, which canceled seven series this week, including Legacies, Charmed, 4400, Naomi, Roswell, New Mexico, In the Dark and Dynasty.
CBS canceled nearly a half-dozen programs, including Magnum P.I, B Positive and Good Sam, while NBC pulled the plug on three (including the comedies Mr. Mayor and Kenan).
Fox, meanwhile, parted ways with two series, Our Kind of People and Pivoting.
Miraculously, ABC — which has had some of the biggest cancellation numbers in recent years — brought back all five of its remaining scripted bubble shows.
"I haven't seen a bloodbath of TV cancellations like this in a long time," lamented writer-producer Phillip Iscove (Sleepy Hollow, Station 19) on Twitter. "Absolutely brutal. My condolences to all the writers, cast and crew out there.”
