Justice pulled, Brian pumped

The networks giveth, the networks taketh away.

Fox has taken the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Justice off its schedule, the network said today. Production on the show will wrap after the 13th episode is filmed, with no word on whether those remaining episodes will be aired.

Justice had been shuffled around the schedule after finding going tough in its Wednesday 9 p.m. time slot. Fox will rerun House in the show's current spot, Monday's at 9 p.m.

Fox may opt to put Justice online. Earlier in the season, NBC wrapped production on its drama Kidnapped and pulled the show from the schedule. Now, NBC is making the remaining unaired episodes available on the Web. Yesterday, CBS announced it would put the unaired episodes of its quickly canceled Ray Liotta show Smith on its Innertube site.

ABC announced it has ordered the remaining nine episodes of drama What About Brian, making it a full season for the romantic drama. Brian comes from Lost and Felicity creator J.J. Abrams.

Today also marked the announcement by NBC that it was giving troubled Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip a full-season order. The CW also extended Veronica Mars and One Tree Hill by three episodes apiece.

This is crazy! All the good shows are being cancelled. Why not run them in the summer months. I love Justice and Kidnapped. How can you just leave people hanging like that? :(

This was on of my favorite new shows that came out this last season. They really need to start putting more meaningful, thought inducing shows like this one on the air...or they're going to really start getting into trouble.

Why cancel Justice, didnt know you had and kept looking for it. Both my neighbor who is 73 and I who is 39 both liked it and miss it very much. Im tired of seeing all these other stuff on tv too many reality shows and stuff like that. This was good and always showed how things happened. It kept you on your toes and interested about what the characters do next.

It would be great if the networks would give this show another shot. I loved it!

Let's face it; FOX is up to its old tricks again. ABC and NBC at least does not have the same stupidity of FOX in consistently axing good shows. Justice was good, but no patch on 'The Inside', which was cancelled in 2005 by FOX too. Shame on FOX. A pity all these good shows are sold to FOX when they would have had a better chance on other networks.

You know what I don't understand - WHO are the people who decide what should be taken off the air. I really enjoyed this show. It was interesting to find out what really happened in the end. So what does Hollywood do. The put on American Idol for 5 hours a week. Come on

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!



It never fails, once you finally find a show that you can get into and enjoy, it gets dumped. Me and my husband loved Justice, couldn't wait for it to come on when we could find it. Please bring it back.

Huge mistake taking Justice off. I absolutely loved that show. HOw do we get it back? What can we do? It was the one show this year that kept me intrigued throughout the entire show. It saddens me that someone in programming doesn't have a clue what a gem they let go.

I am very disappointed that Justice was cancelled. With a lack of really good programming lately this was a winner. Stop moving stuff around so much and give it a chance - and BRING JUSTICE BACK!!

I am soo upset that they took Justice off the air. I didn't miss a single episode and actually got my husband into watching it with me. It was a great show and I honestly don't understand why they took it off! I loved when it played on Friday nights, there was nothing else to watch...besides the fact that I don't watch much else as far as television shows are concerned. I want them to bring back Justice!!!!!!!!!!

I just don`t get it it was a smart show!!! and all the caracters were great and i still don`t understand, if they already knew that it was not going to last longer, why do they released it in latinamerica, well if it was a sort of experiment to rate the audience here, well gess what?? we love it!!!, and if the fox people is not gonna do anything about it maybe they just shouldn't invest in things that they don`t bealive in, of course i`m not saying it`s not a good show, of course it is, come on!!! who wouldn't like to be like Ron Trott he allways knows what to do and everything he does just come up well.....they should put back the show!!!

Intelligent, well-done shows like "Justice" do not seem to work anymore. Shame on Bruckheimer for selling it to Fox in the first place. Cheap reality crap and high $ Game shows are all that seem to hold the very short attention span of the avearge uneducated and superficial American TV viewers. Fellow "Justice" fans, we need to start reading books again.

i have been watching all the different guides for when justice returns only to find tonight that you have pulled it from the schedule! why? i don't understand; you drag the show allover the different times and days--no small wonder people stopped watching cuz they couldn't find it. please bring it back and get rid of some other show, eg brian, family guy. no justice when good shows are pulled and the awful ones remain!

I can't believe you took off Justice. This is a good show. There are only a few shows I watch on Fox and that is one of them. The cast is great, everything about the show makes it interesting. Please Please bring it back.

I can't belive they took that show off the air!!!

I LOVED that show.. Especially since it was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer who we all know from CSI - the original!!! This show kept me on the edge of my seat, it was very interesting how the other side (lawyers) plays all those games, not to mention the cast!! I LOVED THEM ALL!!!! PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!

Once again Fox took off a great show by canceling Justice. I think it was the best new show on television. Maybe we could save it if enough fans wrote to Fox.

I just found out that Justice will be back in December. i think all this talk about production being wrapped is a load of nonsense. although it seems rather suspect that they'd have reruns of House rather than reruns of 'Justice' though. and if you guys are upset, then write to Fox and find out what's going on. it's the only way we're ever gonna get any satisfactory answers.

Yeah, I'm sad, I thought Justice was a really good show! I like Victor Garber's character - he played a good scumbag. So I was sad when House was on. Oh well...life goes on.

As much as I love House, I was very sad when I turned on the TV last night and found Justice wasn't on. I was even more upset when I found out FOX pulled it. I liked this show! It had all of that in which all those other court dramas had but went a step further. Instead of wondering if the person really did it or not at the end of the show it showed us what actually happened. It made people question the man. I hope another network will pick it up and its success will bite FOX in the rear. I mean come on, they didn't even give it a fair chance...yet they'll leave crap like Vanished and Standoff on. Shame. And don't even get me started on that What About Brian show!

They can improve this show by making it interactive. Film two different endings and allow the viewers to be the "mock jury" via the Internet or calling a toll free number and pressing one for innocent or two for guilty. They can provide the ending based on what we say. That might draw more viewers in. Part of Idol's success is that the viewers feel they are a part of the show.

Justice was horrible. So glad it's gone. What About Brian is even more bad. How ABC keeps this and cuts out classics like Invasion baffles me.

Justice was a show that lacked any sense of reality. Justice was based on the idea that O.J., Kobe and Michael Jackson cases happened every other week. The trial techniques used and shown by the Justice team shown in Justice were developed to be used in civil trial where 100's of millions of dollars were at stake.

I just sat down to watch justice and realized it isn't on! I'm soooooo bummed. I finally found a show I really liked. I just don't get it. who decides this? I didn't even know it was on until it landed on monday nights. it should have been given a chance. I'm so mad at fox right now. I never did like all those weird reality shows and they finally got something good and they drop it. JEERS TO YOU FOX!!!!!! I had a group of friends watching it tonight too!!!!

i can't believe fox has pulled justice. me & my wife have 2yr old twins and these days our quality time spent together is watching shows. we hav about 12 shows tivo'd yes 12 that we watch weekely faithfully. we don't miss one. so i guess what i am getting at is this. we like to pick a show we like best and i like 24 the best and she likes house the best but since justice has started we have both agreed that we liked justice the best. the show has a great cast who all play a perfect part. i would be disappointed with fox if i have to watch a monday night rerun of house becasue as i stated earlier i don't miss any episodes so therefor ive seen every house there is. i thought that when justice got moved from wed to mon it meant that it had awesome ratings. i cant see how no one would like this show. i can only think maybe that they put it up against monday night football that it might of hurt there ratings but i have to say i never missed monday night football either but i hav the last few years to wathc prison break and other shows. please please please giv us justice back. its simple a new show for the fox faithful or a slap in the face with reruns for the fox faithful. thanks

What?!?!? I LOVE JUSTICE!!! They can't take it off the air. No offense, but that Brian show sucks and I would much rather have Justice back than watch that other ridiculous show. It's unbelievable how excellent show after excellent show gets cancelled, yet absolute drivel is applauded as amazing work and it gets renewed. Bravo FOX! Ingenius decision. Totally moronic!

Interesting how people think Justice was a quality show. It was a show filled with one liner overly intense statements designed to amp up the drama - especially those from Victor Garber's character. The characters often did not talk to each other, instead they explained legal terms to each other for the benefit of the audience and again to add drama. So you end up with uninteresting characters who don't seem to understand their own profession, no dialog, no character development and a lot of noise. Very good for people with a short attention span.

Justice was one of the best new shows on TV and something that I enjoyed to watch and now it's getting cancelled? And "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip", which is the probably one of the worst new shows on TV is getting a full season? What's with that?

"Is it just me or are they cancelling the majority of the shows they just put on?? I haven't found one I really enjoyed so far anyway."



yeah they tend to make a whole bunch then get rid of half of them! My sis told me last night that they will not air new epsoides till Dec becasue of Billboard awards or something like that. I though that is bad for the show becasuse me haven't seen a show in most of october and then it comes back for a couple of eposides and then they don't air any for awhile. I hope it is not cancelled I love it me and my mom enjoy it oh well thats how it goes

You realise that this is our fault guys! If we keep watching the reality dog crap(that icludes IDOL)that we are being fed by the networks then of course they will cancel gems like justice in favour of recycled pap because we tell them they can by watching it,come on now we all know where the off button is!!

I dont understand what ABC has anything to do with the shows on FOX. Im confused about that. Can someone explain that to me?I absolutely do not want to see Justice cancelled. There are many other shows that deserve to be cancelled. Justice is a very intelligent show with an outstanding cast. They are making a HUGE MISTAKE if they cancel Justice. Ok, Im dating myself here, but i remember when Bosom Buddies was on TV and it got cancelled. There was such an outrage about its cancellation, they put it back on TV. For those too young to remember it was a sitcom with Tom Hanks and Peter Scoleri. They dressed up as women to get an apartment in an all womens apartment building. I hope FOX is smart and keeps justice on!

What's wrong with Justice? What's wrong with FOX? FOX just eliminated its edge by axing Justice, this is "CSI" in the courtroom context, it pushes the legal dramas to the next level, guess they fail to see that.

Justice is a great show and I'm disappointed to see it go. I'm also confused because FOX just moved Justice to Mondays and moved Vanished to Fridays. And now it looks like both shows will see the ax. Since these are FOX's two best new shows, I don't know what FOX is trying to do. I'm still not over them cancelling Reunion last season, or Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared in previous years.

Does Fox actually believe more people will watch reruns of a show that used to be great, but is now declining in its first run episodes than will watch 'Justice'. IMO 'Justice was one of the best new shows of the season and it is difficult to understand why Fox treated it so badly with time-slot changes, weeks with no new episodes, etc. Why spend the bucks on 13 episodes and not give the public ample opportunity to become acquainted with the show. I was acquainted week one and LOVED it.

Here's the chance to move Vanished back to it's much deserved monday spot.

I liked Justice but i'm not gonna miss it!

What I like about Brian is better than it was last season but it's still kinda boring! I watch it sometimes but it's not one of theose shows that i watch every week!
