    Fox announced that these shows will be pulled from the lineup in March to make way for Andy Richter and Greg The Bunny. They say these shows are losing too many viewers from their lead-ins so it does not look good for these 2 shows.

    They're being pulled to make room for mid-season replacements, but that doesn't mean "possibly cancelled", at least in my mind. Things certainly don't look great for either series, though.

    They should have canned Titus a long time ago.

    I sure hope Undeclared isn't canceled. It's one of my favorites.

    Boy... Fox must really not want me to watch them anymore. I watch both Titus and Undeclared regularly. Since X-Files is going away in May, that leaves only That 70's Show for me to watch on that network. Oh well, more time for DVD's.

    I used to watch Cops and America's Most Wanted every Saturday night but now I'm not usually home to catch them.

    I guess even the old "Dobie Gillis" trick of speaking to the Fourth Wall, just didn't work for "Titus"...too bad, because it was the only interesting thing...that, and the flashbacks of Titus growing up and casting Stacey Keach as the Crazy, Irrascible Old Man...were the only things that it had going for it.

    I'd love to see more of Stacey Keach...sadly under utilized talent there. His film "Fat City" is a classic.

    That is a shame cause I think Undeclared is one the funniest shows on TV right now. It's a lot more entertaining that any of the big NBC sitcoms. I agree with the above post, pretty soon the only time I'll tune into Fox will be for That 70's show. Oh I watch Dark Angel too but that has gotten so unbelieveably bad I can't imagine it'll last too much longer.

    That's a shame. I've always said Titus is one of the most underrated shows on TV, and Undeclared is growing on me very quickly.

    Too bad, I hope it doesn't happen... but I wouldn't be surprised.

    Undeclared is also starting to grow on me. I've watched it most weeks, and while I don't laugh out loud as much as I do on other shows, I do enjoy the show and don't find it as eye rollingly stupid as most sitcoms.

    And Titus I love, but I just started watching it again after figuring out when it was actually supposed to be on. They kept moving it, and showing them on a "special night and time" that I never knew when it's actual day was. Then they all but stopped promoting the season premiere after 9/11, so it sat with nearly no advertising for two months, and the only thing I've seen lately is "Up next, a new Titus" after Bernie Mac.

    Titus and Undeclared are both great, unfortunately both are scheduled against stuff I watch over them. Undeclared (and That 70s Show) are opposite Buffy so I always miss them. And I don't even know what time Titus is on anymore, but it runs Wed. when I'm watching Ed/Enterprise and West Wing. Why Fox scedules their good stuff against the good stuff from other networks that target the same demographic I'll never know. Christ, there is an hour and a half window on Thursday nights when there is nothing I can stand on TV. I hate CSI and Will and Grace and those shows skew older than Undeclared and Titus, they might not win the slots, but they would offer a stong alternative for people like me.

    I love and hate Undeclared. I think its funny (actually very funny) and generally well made and acted (and I would love to bang the hell out of Rachel) but I get kind of depressed watching it as it reminds me of the good old days of college life. Sure, the show is WAY OFF on some aspects of college life, but it is dead on in other ways.

    I sincerely doubt Fox has anything better in the pipe, so why not stay with it? Remember, way back a little show called Cheers was not doing so well when it first came on, but we all know how that turned out (and no, I'm not really trying to compare the two shows).

    Hey Jason,

    I'm with you on Monice Keena(Rachel). It's in the eyes with her. She just seems to soak in sexuality to me. I don't know exactly what else it is, but she has IT. I hope they don't cancel this show. I like it. If anything, I hope Monica gets more screentime somewhere.

    The scene where they were doing the "script" was absolutely brilliant. I had a problem hearing it because I was laughing so hard. (Somebody PLEASE get me a DirectTivo.)

    I couldn't believe the emotions I was feeling when the new guy was there for the ToD. I REALLY wanted him to go, but then he definitely added to the humor of the evening.

    I love this show so it's gotta go.

    I loved the script scene. This week was definitely Undeclared at its best. I really hope this show stays!

    "Anybody wanna play some Uno?" has to be one of the best delivered lines I've seen in a while.
