wtffff why would they cancel TSC, it had so much more potential than nikita and hart of dixie. I love Rachel Bilson but her show completely tanked, there was no storyline or suspense what so ever. TSC had so much going for it in season two this is so stupid. The Carrie Diaries is going to be exactly like Gossip Girl except in the 80s and first cut is just anoyther Grey's Anatomy copycat. The only reason I even watch the CW is for Vampire Diaries now.

AFTER THE VAMPIRE DIARIES I WOULD SOMETIMES CATCH TSC AND FROM WHAT I SAW IT WAS PRETTY GOOD AND NOW THAT I HEARD THAT THEY LEFT CLIFF HANGERS AND ARENT COMING BACK THAT SUCKS I FEEL LIKE SHOWS THAT LEAVE CLIFF HANGERS WHEN THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO THE STORY EVEN IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A LOT OF VIEWS OR WHATEVER THE CASE SHOULD STILL BE FINISHED I KNOW IF IT WAS THE VAMPIRE DIARIES I WOULD BE COMPLETELY HEART BROKEN IF THEY COULD NOT BE ABLE TO RETURN SO I PUT MYSELF IN YOUR SHOES AND TRULY BELIEVE THAT THAT SUCKS

Bad thing they cancelled TSC, this coming from someone who had only the time to watch the first few episodes. It had some potential.
Can't wait for ARROW though!

How can they cancel secret cirlce? So much better than the other crap they have on. The only show i am looking forward to is arrow, but why have they not cast Justin Hartley as Oliver Queen? It doesnt make any sense. Wonder if some characters featured on smallville will make a reappearence at some stage.

I can't believe they cancelled TSC. I loved that show. I too wish another network will pick it up because I was looking forward to seeing what season 2 was going to do after all of the cliff hangers at the end of the finale. I can't say I'm at all interested in any of the new shows. This really SUCKS!!!!! The CW SUCKS!!!!!
