    To bad about this series they had 9 episodes finished only 3 got to air. I wonder if another network will pick this up i thought it was pretty good all be it i saw only 3 shows. The other monday night program Miracles that followed Veritas has survived for the time being but it could be cancelled in the coming weeks aswell.

    Damn! I knew it. At least one of them 2 still surviving.

    Farscape cancelled. Still have Stargate SG-1
    Odyssey 5 cancelled. Still have Jeremiah
    Firefly cancelled. Still have Fastlane and John Doe
    Veritas cancelled, still have Miracles for now, and Alias and Dragnet!
    Robbery Homicide Division cancelled too... got all reairs on USA, best cop show ever.
    Sex and the City, Sopranos, Oz ending too.

    So no more episodes will air, that sucks, leaving 6 unaired. They could at least air it during the day or like at 2am for those few who want to see it, instead of infomercials or crappy daytime shows.

    Oh and take RHD, it went through almost 3 complete reair cycles of its 10 episodes in USA, why not show 11-13 instead...

    So now I won't have EP4 of Veritas to pair with 3 on a DVD-R...

    Man I can't believe this was canceled already, talking about not even giving it a chance. And I thought the ratings for it were OK, though admittedly not great. Did Miracles get substantially better ratings than Veritas? Was the show officially canceled, or is this just an assumption based on the fact that it's not on the next few weeks?

    I liked Veritas OK, it was a fun show. But the one I'm most interested in is Miracles. If ABC cancels that it will be the last new series by them that I bother checking out. I only watch one other show on ABC right now (Alias), pretty much everything else on their lineup is crap.

    It's me guys, sorry[​IMG]

    Every show I try watching and find I enjoy is immediately dropped by the networks.

    Again I'm sorry.

    From what I remember seeing on zap2it, Veritas was getting just as good/bad of ratings as the other 2 shows on monday night, miracles and whatever.

    I think I will cancel John Doe next.

    That's cool then. My dad and I were kinda pissed that they were cancelling it so early. It's not a great show, but it's fun to watch.

    Brian,

    Is there a statement from ABC saying it was not cancelled ? Because before it was cancelled the next showing was suppose to be that date anyway. I always use episodeguides.com and they are usually very accurate with there tv programming info. I hope their wrong and it is coming back in march but you can check the url below and see it's canned according to them.

    That's great! At least a few more episodes will be good enough!

    And it's listed on the official ABC site now, so I'll trust them rather than some independent fanboy epguides website.

    When this thread first announced the cancellation I went looking for other sources to corroborate the info, and couldn't find anything. Was there ever an official announcement by ABC? Methinks maybe epguides.com just jumped the gun.

    I'm liking this show. Kinda like an 'Indiana Jones' series for the 21st century. I hope ABC gives it some more time.

    I haven't truthfully watched a commercial since activating my DirecTIVO, so I can't get commercials cancelled:b

    Malcolm, you have no right to make me suffer like that.

    I find it terribly ironic that every show I find enjoyable gets crap ratings and every show I cannot stomach gets great ratings.
