Anyone not in a coma could have seen it coming, but The Event has now officially been cancelled by NBC.

Ratings started reasonably strong, but declined steadily into the toss up range by December, and fell off a cliff after an extended hiatus return in March.

Along with its cancellation of The Event, the fact that NBC has now also cancelled Law & Order: Los Angeles is also no surprise. Our previously reliable source got that right as well earlier in the week.

Another show taken out of the NBC line up for an extended hiatus, this time for “retooling”, it ended its Fall run nearing the “toss up” range and returned in April to disastrous ratings.

Has the Dick Wolf magic run its course?

GET EM STEPH!!

Wow...I thought NBC would keep some of these shows. It seems like they are going to start completely from scratch in the Fall.

NBC has no one to blame but itself for what happened to The Event and L&O: LA. They had dropped off after their premieres but the hiatuses killed both shows and they never recovered. Who knows what would've happened if not for that.

Son of a bitch. I LOVE The Event! I watch it on hulu since it is on opposite something else I watch (DWTS? Castle? I don't even know) anyway, God Damn It! Every time I LOVE a show it gets cancelled. They never give any new shows a chance. *stomps feet and pouts*

I liked The Event as well, but I am cursed when it comes to NBC shows. Anytime I love a show on NBC it ends up canceled...which is why I am surprised The Voice is doing well.

Jason Ritter is amazing. Hope he gets another show asap. A drama show though. He's a great dramatic actor.

The Event might be picked up by Syfy. Fingers crossed! I hope either Syfy or TNT will pick it up. Come on Jason Ritter is in it for goodness sakes! Love me some Jason Ritter.

No matter what you think, I DO love you.

ugh NBC sucks ass, they're always dropping good shows. they get you hooked then when you're ready for another season - they tell you it's cancelled. still not over "chase" being cancelled, bastards! i thought L&O LA was decent but i'm not surprised it wasn't picked up for another season.

i never watched "the event" but i know a lot of ppl who are not happy it's gone too.

I still miss the orginal L&O. They had finally found a well rounded cast the last few years, especially with Jeremy Sisto, Linus Roache and Alana De La Garza... :(
