As the weather warms up, network TV is winding down. For dozens of shows this spring marks the final curtain call.

ABC axes a dozen shows, including ‘Super Fun Night,’ ‘Suburgatory’

The nights weren’t as “super fun” in the first and only season Rebel Wilson’s comedy, and it’s not the only sitcom on the ABC chopping block. Newcomers “Mixology,” “Betrayal,” “Back in the Game,” and “Killer Women,” are all ending after only one season. So far the network has announced 12 shows that won’t be back next year.

After five seasons, it was time for the gang at Greendale to graduate and “The Michael J. Fox Show,” starring the former “Family Ties” actor has been axed after just a single season. NBC has also canceled several dramas and announced that the 2014-15 season of “Parenthood” and “Parks and Recreation” will be their last.

‘Bad Teacher,’ ‘Intelligence’ fail to make the grade for CBS

Robin Williams’ return to network TV was short-lived, as his comedy “The Crazy Ones” wasn’t a hit with network execs. CBS also announced the end of five other shows, including “Bad Teacher,” “Intelligence,” and “We Are Men.”

‘Raising Hope,’ ‘Surviving Jack’ among casualties at Fox

After four seasons, Fox felt “Hope” had grown up enough. The sitcom was among the shows canceled by the network, which also saw the axe fall on “The X Factor” and “Almost Human.”
