The axe is falling hard in TV land this week, as the networks host Upfronts in New York to present their fall schedules.

Did your favorite show make the cut? Probably at least one did not.

Budget cuts are being cited in many cases, but we know TV executives often look to ratings over quality when making such decisions. (Of course, there are several here that deserved to go. See ya, Jim!)

Here’s the list of shows that have been cancelled so far, if you want to keep track:

CBS
Eleventh Hour
The Unit
Without a Trace

The CW
Gossip Girl spinoff
Privileged
Reaper

NBC
Life
Medium*
My Name Is Earl

ABC
According to Jim
Cupid
In the Motherhood
Samantha Who?
Surviving Suburbia
The Unusuals

Fox
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

*‘Medium’ canceled by NBC, saved by CBS!
