V Renewed, FlashForward & Better Off Ted Cancelled

Earlier today,'s Michael Ausiello reported that ABC has renewed the Elizabeth Mitchell-led V. He tweeted this:

That is great news for the series that has improved its storytelling, upped the stakes, and started kicking major butt in the ratings. Next season, ABC can move V to LOST's current timeslot or to the 8 PM slot. Assuming ABC chooses the latter, FOX keeps Glee at 9 PM, and CBS keeps The Good Wife at 10 PM, I won't have to miss anything on Tuesdays! Yay!

About an hour later, Ausiello tweeted this:

While I've been expecting Scrubs to be cancelled, I was still holding out hope for Better Off Ted and FlashForward. The writing on Better Off Ted is incredibly clever and funny. Jay Harrington and Portia de Rossi are great as the protagonist Ted and his boss Veronica. I guess the Save Better Off Ted petition didn't work, eh? One more thing: is ABC ever going to air the last two episodes produced?

There was speculation that ABC might renew FlashForward because of its popularity overseas. The writing has improved, which gave us awesome episodes such as "A561984," "Revelation Zero," "Better Angels," and "The Garden of Forking Paths." It took awhile to find its voice, but it eventually did. I just hope the finale airing on May 27th ties up everything that's relevant to the characters.

The upfront presentation for ABC is still on May 18th (incidentally, the air date for LOST's penultimate episode) and I guess the above will be officially announced then.
