Ladies and gentleman, it's that time of year again. Shows are being cancelled and they are being renewed. Old shows are ending and new shows are beginning. It can be a joyous time or a depressing time, but it is inevitable. T.V. lovers all over the world are anxiously waiting to see if their favorites made the cut or not. So join me, and lets take a tour down to the cemetery to see what shows lived and what shows died.

THE CW: The CW is home to many beloved shows, many of which survived death row. Fan favorites such as The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and Arrow will be sticking around for at least another year. The network's new shows, The Originals and Reign, will also live on despite low ratings. Hart of Dixie hasn't met its fate yet so it will probably be saved. Beauty and the Beast, The Tomorrow People, The Carrie Diaries, and newcomer, Star-Crossed are also still awaiting their fate, but things are looking pretty grim for them. It is too early to predict what will happen to the new sci-fi drama The 100 because the show just aired at the end of March. We also can't forget the new pilots the CW has planned for a 2014-2015 release, including a Supernatural spin-off and a new show about the comic book character, Flash.

ABC: Unlike The CW, ABC hasn't officially renewed any of its shows. Popular favorites such as Castle, Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, The Bachelor, and Modern Family will all probably survive the chopping block. The OUaT spinoff, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, was recently cancelled after a thirteen episode run. Mind Games and Rebel Wilson's Super Fun Night will likely join Wonderland and the other shows that already reside in T.V. heaven. Nashville, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Revenge should pull through and get at least one more season each but the same can't be said for Suburgatory, Last Man Standing, and The Neighbors. New comedies Trophy Wife and The Goldbergs should also receive another life line in the 2014-2015 season. Because ABC hasn't released any information regarding their upcoming schedule, most of this is pure speculation based on ratings.

FOX: Fox was another network that rebooted almost all of its shows. The Following and The Mindy Project were both picked up, along with American Idol. The X-Factor was killed due to poor ratings and the sci-fi drama Almost Human will also survive. The fans of Glee will get one more season of the musical drama next year because that season will be its last. Fan favorite Bones will be around for at least one more year and that show will be going into its tenth season.

NBC: The popular network dramas like The Blacklist, Chicago Fire, and Grimm will all return next year. It looks like Believe and Crisis are picking out caskets but it unclear if Revolution and Hannibal will be joining them.

CBS: CBS also kept most of their shows alive such as The Good Wife, Person of Interest, and Two and a Half Men. Hostages has sadly left the building and Intelligence may join it.

So there you have it folks! Many shows have been buried and many have been resurrected and will see the light of day. The 2014-2015 schedule isn't final yet so there are still plenty of more shows that can rise and fall.
