The networks held their “upfronts” a couple of weeks ago, in which they pitched to advertisers the new shows that they’ll be selling in the fall.

A few shows will start this summer, but this morning, we’ll recap the shows that are bidding farewell to the airwaves (although we won’t get to all of the 107 cancellations since September).  Some of them have become cultural icons, others, proverbial flashes in the pan. (As in Pan Am. Remember that one? Didn’t think so.)

As always, to help us keep track of what’s up, what’s down, what’s on, and what’s off, we turn to Roger Casey. He’s the President of McDaniel College in Westminster, and an expert on pop culture.

Audio for this segment will be available later today.
