It’s that time of year when networks must make decisions about the future of their programming. We’ve already seen some surprising moves and totally expected cancellations announced. However, CBS delighted fans of the crime drama CRUSH when he decided to renew the series just days after initially announcing its cancellation.

According TV lineFriday, the Shemar Moore the drama has been officially deleted. However, a fiery response from the star and a strong reaction from her fans apparently changed CBS’s mind. When the show’s cancellation was initially announced, Moore took instagram share their frustrations by saying, “I’m a little sad. I am a bit sad…CRUSH has been cancelled. It does not mean anything. For the past two years, we’ve killed him… We’ve done nothing wrong. We did everything that was asked. Did you know that I am the only African American male actor on network television?…CRUSH is the most diverse show on CBS. Don’t think we’re done. CBS will either wake up and realize they made a mistake. Sony will do its calculations and realize that this is not the right decision. I hope we can have a kumbaya and come back together and continue this show because it’s a good time for families all over the world.

While Moore’s frustrations are understood, for the file, all american; The neighborhood; Law and order; Great crew; And NCIS: Los Angeles all have black male threads.

It seems he was right that everyone was changing their minds, however, because on Monday, CBS backtracked and decided to bring the series back for a seventh and final season. If you read between the lines of the network’s statement, CBS and Sony Pictures Television probably realized the show was making more money than they thought it could and the studio couldn’t afford to lose it right now.

There is also the impact of WGA Writers’ Strike, leading to uncertainty about the upcoming 2023-24 TV season. Although many pilots have been produced and completed, this does not mean that a complete series is ready. It makes sense for networks to build on proven successes like CRUSH, instead of rolling the dice on something that can’t start production until the strike is over. At the very least, CBS can still air reruns of the proceedings until the writers and studios reach an agreement and production can resume. Why do you think CBS practically renewed its entire schedule? Why is ABC ready to resume 9-1-1 for season 7? NBC sticks to what works and brings back all its A Chicago And Law and order series. Besides reality shows and streaming schedule adjustments, the strike could lead to more unlikely renewals. This ask the question: Wbad Black-led shows benefit from the desperation of the television networks?
