Well, it was awful.
As the broadcast networks cleaned the house in advance of next weeks fall presentations, a total of 17 broadcast series were laid to rest in the past 48 hours.
The CW, which canceled seven series this week, had its body count at the highest level, including Legacies, Charmed, 4400, Naomi, Roswell, New Mexico, and In the Darkand Dynasty.
While NBC pulled the trigger on three programmes (including comedians Mr. Mayor and Kenan) a half dozen programs, including Magnum P.I, B Positive, and Good Sam.
Fox, however, opted for two series, Our Kind of People and Pivoting.
Miraculously, ABC, which in recent years has had some of the most successful cancellation hauls, has brought back all five of its lingering scripted bubble shows.
On Twitter, I''ve never seen a bloodbath of broadcast television cancellations as previously, lamented writer-producer Phillip Iscove (Sleepy Hollow, Station 19). Absolutely brutal. My condolences to all the writers, cast, and crew there.
