Did they finally pull the plug on this show?

    This week and last it (along with the only slightly better Carpoolers)were replaced with Christmas specials - Charlie Brown and Shrek this week.Cavemen and Carpoolershad ratings in the low 3's the last I remember. Charlie Brown last week scored 6.0 rating for decades old reruns. If Shrek scores high - they may continue this new strategy for the 8-9pm time slot

    I like this show, but I think the writing is on the wall. It looks like there are two more episodes that were made but not yet shown. Given the writers strike they'll probably burn the the remaining 2 and call it a wrap. Question is when? Guess that depends on the strike, hey if ABC can get better play with Charlie Brown, expect more decades old specials...Too bad it's a good show, would love to see ABC kick it to Cable like they did with Monk. But hey it could be worse, it could be a CBS show and they would have pulled the plug a month ago, strike or no strike!

    I think that's it, was a so-so run while it lasted, and with the writers strike I think it's over...

    BTW with that kind of writing do they still want more money? at least justify with some good writing!

    Yea, I have a bad feeling about this.

    The funny thing this week is that I got a letter in the mail from Geico. And guess who's on it? Yep, you guessed it. It says "The Reality Report" on the envelope with a caveman and the quote "We're not laughing." On the back it has upwithcavemen.com and "Cavemen are people too.(TM)" The webpage is the letter inside.

    I thought this was hilarious because of the timing...

    Cavemen, along with Carpoolers has hit the "on hiatus or fate to be determined" list. It was placed on hiatus after its 11/13/07 airing withno return dateset yet.

    If the bitter writers continue with this, more awful shows will come and also get canned, it's like they got writer's block for some pennies not earned. Latest victim was Bionic Woman..

    i still haven't heard any real answers, it just appears that everyone thinks that this show is canceled...who knows for sure though...

    as entertaining as it is, i just can't see the show staying around for very long...

    Would anyone really be surprised if it gets canceled? People have been saying it will be canceled even before it aired, right from the time that it was first announced even.

    They did air one episode, but that's it...

    February is pretty empty for new episodes from anything, wasn't February Sweep month?

    Mediaweek reports the Geico commercial-inspired Cavemen and the Jerrys O'Connell- and Minor-led Carpoolers are goners; however, ABC has declined to confirm the cancellations.

    The George Lopez show fell apart faster than a Lego tower. Cavemen actually had something original and clever to bring to the network.

    Indeed. George Lopez was awful and shouldn't have lasted as long as it did.

    I really liked this show.

    It was light, funny, good length and original.

    I really hope they keep it, but I think that the chances are high for it to be canceled.

    Maybe we should try the Jericho technique, and instead of sending in peanuts, we'll send in something else.

    Hmm, but what? Stones? Chicken wings? Clubs? I know, balls of hair!!! lol

    Well I'm crossing my figngers too. Viva cavemen!

    bring it back! it was getting good!

    i just saw a commercial on the good-morning news, the Cavemen were talking about "wow, there was a tv-show about us?"...i perked-up, thinking it was an "IT'S BACK"...but no.

    they were complaining about how the TV show used actors in make-up, instead of REAL cavemen.

    i hope this DOES stoke it up again.
