Broadcast Ax: Networks just went on a cancelation binge

They call it Bloody Friday—the last weekday before broadcasters present their fall schedules to advertisers in New York. But really, it’s been a full week of gory executions, with Fox killing off The Following, ABC ending Forever and then, during today’s climactic cancel-a-thon, about a half-dozen shows lost their hope for another season.  

Below is the full list of 30-plus axed shows during the 2014-15 season—including how long each lasted and their key adult demo ratings season to date, including DVR playback. Plus, we also listed the lucky shows that survived to return for another year.
