ABC renews V, axes FlashForward and Scrubs

  • 7comments

ABC have finally had their inevitable schedule cleanout, reportedly cancelling FlashForward and Scrubs in the process.

The American broadcaster, which unceremoniously dumped Happy Town yesterday, has also axed US shows Romantically Challenged and Better off Ted in favour of alien remake V. The sci-fi series, fronted by Firefly's Morena Baccarin, was saved following a recent ratings boost in the States.

Some of ABC's more popular shows, including Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, are still waiting on official renewal confirmation, but it's unlikely any will face the chop.

Will you be petitioning for any of their return?
