17 TV Shows That Were Saved From Cancellation by Other Networks
Canceled by ABC, picked up by CMT
This was a no-brainer pick-up! When Nashville, a show about country music stars, was canceled at ABC, who else would be as perfect as CMT to pick it up?! The Country Music Network was a natural home for the show and allowed it to grow its audience among country music fans. It was a huge leap of faith for the network that had barely dabbled in scripted programming before picking up the show. But the pick-up allowed for Nashville to air two more seasons and tie up loose ends on its own terms. If it had ended with season four, fans would have been left with a massive cliffhanger. But fortunately, they were able to end the show in a satisfying way.
