Cancelled: "Still Standing," "Yes Dear," "Out of Practice" & "Courting Alex"

omalley.jpgIs the sitcom dead or something? First ABC and NBC kill much of their comedy lineup (OK -- some of them really needed to go). Now it's CBS' turn to clean house.

When released the fall CBS lineup today, a few fresh and some familiar faces were missing. It was no surprise that "Courting Alex" and "Out of Practice" (the Fonz!) got the boot. Both had been pulled from the schedule a while back. Also, rumors were flying about the demise of "Yes, Dear." However, for some reason, I am shocked about "Still Standing." I thought this was still a staple for the network. Guess not.

The Jami Gertz/Mark Addy comedy first premiered in 2002. I guess "The King of Queens" will have to fill the "hot-wife-married-to-a-fat-guy" void on CBS. I always thought they did it the best anyway.

"Yes Dear" is currently enjoying a second life in syndication on TBS. -- Rachel Cericola

Still Standing hasn't been on CBS in months... I think it was assumed that it had been cancelled.

There was no official word until today...

But some cancellations... wow wee. They rip the Web site down the second the announcement is made. That's hardcore!

I'm really sad for "Out of Practice", aren't you? That was actually a really good show, I thought.

And poor Paula Marshall...her "show-killer" label just got shinier, when the death toll spiked from 7 to 8. Eek!

You aren't kidding, James... I think I predicted Paula Marshall would kill this show before it even premiered. Just teasing though. I don't see anything wrong with her!

I feel sad for The Fonz though. I was sad when he left "Arrested Development," but this show seemed to be doing well, so I figured it was a good move... I guess either way he was sunk. Aayyyyy!

It's a crime what CBS did to "Out of Practice". They killed it by moving it to Wednesday nights. The rapport between Winkler and Channing was priceless. I will not submit any of my teleplay pilots to CBS! (I guess Paula Marshall really is a jinx)

"Out of Practice" was a really good show. A really talented cast, they were great to watch and so funny. My fav. Why? I don't get it. A show I liked a few years ago was canceled that didn't make sense to me either. Does anyone remember "Welcome to New York?" with Christine Baranski, Sarah from Roseanne and a funny fair male comedian I should know at least the first name of.

Life without "Still Standing, Yes Dear and Out of Practice" will be difficult!!!!!! They were some really terrific shows and will be seriously missed. What can we do to get them back?

I loved Still Standing. It is hard for me to see how its ratings were so low. The cast and the writing were very refreshing. The dad on the show reminded me of Homer Simpson the way he was such a clueless parent. It looks like Still Standing is in syndication so it will still be around.

I love Yes dear. Outstanding great comedy. Very disappointing that show is cancelled. Anyway to get that show back?

I think Monday nights is the CBS's strongest night on TV. Although Still Standing may have had some low ratings, I think they made a mistake in cancelling it. I think they should have moved it along with Yes, Dear to another night and then added some other comedy shows with them. I think Wed. night or even Friday night would have been great because there isn't a lot on those night and it's been a while since Fri. night had a good line up.

I loved Still standing to, and Which it didn't get canceled, it was one of the many good shows left on TV today, all the good shows they throw out and repalce with dumb ones, I know nothing can alst forever, but it sure can last longer then they let it. Examples of good shows: That 70's show, Still Standing, 8 simple Rules, Reba (Not canceled but this may be alst season, even though I doubt it) Charmed, Will and Grace. It's just so sad the world is so stupid, thats why I don't watch TV n no mroe, I just stick with WOW (World of Warcraft)

What's wrong with these execs?
"Still Standing" was excellent.
the show just seemed to disappear. it WASN"T even like the show was getting dull.

"Yes dear" seemed to lose good writers. they lost where the show came from, but they could have revived that show.

i totally forgot about "Courting Alex", that was another great show. that shows problem was the lead man... he was dull and didn't seem to fit with the girl...easy fix, they needed to have her get another boyfriend...

"8 simple Rules" was no doubt great and was unfortunate that we lost john ritter. he 'WAS' the SHOW, which caused a problem when he passed. but WHY OH WHY did they replace him with james garner??? he is sooo boring. he's not even a comic. who they should've put in johns place is/was Henry Winkler... he would have been perfect. they came from the same time(when they were famous) both funny as hell. they were friends in real life. they could've made him john's brother and slowly developed a relationship with katey's character. it's a shame that all of them were so talented and the show died... that show would have gone far...
come-on CBS... get with it... listen to what the viewers want!!!

"king of queens" was another of my best'est shows, but they seemed, also, to lost what was funny. that show is not gonna last long (if it isn't already canceled).
why doesn't the creators of these great show watch the re-runs to see what made these shows funny in the 1st place?
i don't get it...

I love "Still Standing",and "King of Queens",and "Yes Dear".My Dad always said "When it's running good,leave it alone".These people who cancel these programs should consider the viewers opinions.
