Your favorite show: Is it safe?

The TV season is winding down like a 6-year-old with ADD coming off a sugar high, and we have a long, joyless summer of warm weather and family togetherness to suffer through. But at least we can take comfort in the closure of knowing which of our favorite shows have been officially renewed ... or kicked to the curb.

Networks are just about finished piecing together their fall lineups, and that means plenty of popping for all those on-the-bubble shows that had left us hanging.

For a full list of shows, Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello has probably the most complete, compact rundown you're likely to find. (It's also where I've been turning to for updates.) Here, however, are a handful of shows that I raised concerns about in a previous On the Bubble post, plus some others you may find surprising.

RENEWED

Better Off Ted (ABC)
Chuck (NBC)
Castle (ABC)
Cold Case (CBS)
Dollhouse (FOX) (Probably the most amazing pickup of the bunch. The show's dismal ratings haven't kept Fox from giving creator Joss Whedon 12 more episodes.)
Gary Unmarried (CBS) (We saw that double take. No, you're not imagining things. This crapfest has been renewed. Sorry, Boyd.)
The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS)
Scrubs (ABC)

CANCELLED

Cupid (ABC)
Eleventh Hour (CBS) (Still no idea what this is. Anybody?)
Everybody Hates Chris (CW)
The Game (CW)
Life (NBC)
Medium (NBC)
My Name is Earl (NBC)
Privileged (CW)
Reaper (CW) (Uh, does the CW have any more shows left?)
Samantha Who? (ABC)
The Unit (CBS)

Any surprises? Disappointments? Devastated that we'll never find out who the hell Samantha is? Drop us a line.

Yayyyy Chuck! I knew you couldn't leave us!

As for "Gary Unmarried" ... if it's the last thing I do, I will get this show cancelled. Even if it means slaughtering Fats McGee Jay Mohr and feeding him to the homeless.

Sucks that Reaper got cancelled. It is/was quite a good show. Harmless fun, with an interesting premise. Super-psyched that Chuck is back though. F-You Jay Leno!!!
