2012 US TV List: What’s Been Renewed? What’s Been Axed? And How They affect The UK

In the US the Autumn season until late May is an uneasy one for actors, writers and production companies as the TV networks make their decisions as to what shows to renew – and what to axe to join the likes of ‘Lie to Me,’ ‘Brothers & Sisters’ and ‘Ghost Whisperer.’ Of course that also has a knock on effect if you’re a fan in the UK and your favourite show will no longer be airing on the likes of Sky or Channel 5.

To help put your mind at ease (or swiftly move you onto a new TV obsession) here’s a list compiled by TV LIne, along with new information of all the commissioning goings on compiled by us here at Inside Media Track, including the UK channels and series.

The listing denotes the US networks ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW followed by the UK channels in RED.
