    Netflix looks like it might soon replace HBO as the perennial Emmy Awards favorite, following the award show's 70th annual broadcast on Monday night.

    Netflix and HBO tied for the most Emmy wins of any network on Monday with 23 wins each. During the main broadcast, Netflix edged out HBO in the wins count seven to six.  

    The streaming service also led all networks in nominations for the first time this year with 112 nods, surpassing HBO's 108 nominations. 

    In 2017, Netflix took home 20 Emmys from 91 nominations — second to HBO's 29 wins and 111 nominations.

    Netflix's rapid ascent comes as HBO's executives are seeking to expand the quantity of the cable outlet's offerings to reach a "broad" audience and better compete with streaming rivals like Netflix, though not exactly at "Netflix-levels of investment." Netflix will famously have spent $8 billion on content this year, with much of its resources going to original content. 

    Below we've listed all of Netflix's Emmy-winning shows and documentaries, the awards they won on Monday, and their respective Rotten Tomatoes critics scores:

    roseanne dan conner john goodman

    • Roseanne Barr confirmed her character would be killed off of "The Conners."
    • In a YouTube interview, Barr said her character would "die of an opioid overdose."
    • ABC canceled its "Roseanne" revival in May after Barr compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
    • The network announced a 10-episode spin-off with the rest of the cast in June.

    Roseanne Barr said she knows how her character will be killed off of ABC's "The Conners" spin-off.

    "Oh, they killed her," Barr said on an hour-long episode of Brandon Straka's YouTube show, "The Unsilent Minority.""They have her die of an opioid overdose."

    ABC's successful "Roseanne" revival was canceled in May after Barr sent a tweet comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. The president of ABC Entertainment, Channing Dungey, called her tweet "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values."

    In June, ABC announced a spin-off, "The Conners," which would bring back the show's main cast. It announced that Barr would not be involved in the 10-episode series.

    "It wasn't enough to just do what they did to me," Barr continued. "They had to, so cruelly, insult the people who loved that family and that show. They had to cruelly insult them and that's what they chose to do. There's nothing I can do about it. It's done."

    Barr claimed that Dungey never wanted her show, "Roseanne," back on the network.

    "[Disney CEO] Bob Iger wanted it and he kind of forced ABC's president to take it, and I don't think she ever wanted it. That's clear to me now, looking back," said Barr.

    Previously, Barr's old costar John Goodman alluded to the fact that Barr would be killed off of the spin-off.

    In an interview with The Sunday Times, Goodman said his character Dan Conner would be "mopey and sad [on 'The Conners'] because his wife's dead."

    On the "Roseanne" revival, the Conner matriarch was hiding a pain pill addiction from her family to help with knee pain. Dan told her they would figure it out together, but first she would get a much-needed surgery so she would stop stashing pills around the house.

    "The Conners" will premiere on ABC October 16 at 8 p.m. ET.

    ABC didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

    You can watch Barr discuss the show below. She starts discussing "The Conners" at the 39-minute mark.

    nick jonas priyanka chopra

    • Nick Jonas sat down for an interview with Jason Kennedy that aired on NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday.
    • When asked how he knew that his relationship with fianceé Priyanka Chopra felt right, the 26-year-old said that faith and love for family are two of the biggest factors. 
    • "I think the thing that really connected both of us is our love for family and faith and the importance of being connected to those that are always going to be there for you," Jonas said. "We found that in each other as well, which is a beautiful thing and I'm excited to start our life together."
    •  Jonas and Chopra confirmed their engagement in August 2018. 


    Nick Jonas is opening up about why he and fianceé Priyanka Chopra click as a couple.

    During a segment that aired on NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday, the "Right Now" singer shared his thoughts on how he knew Chopra was the one. He said that there were "so many things" and he "can go into all of it and get all mushy," but chose to highlight a few factors. 

    "I think the thing that really connected both of us is our love for family and faith and the importance of being connected to those that are always going to be there for you," Jonas told Jason Kennedy. "We found that in each other as well, which is a beautiful thing and I'm excited to start our life together."

    Jonas and Chopra attended the 2017 Met Gala together and speculation that they were dating began in May 2018. The couple waited until August 2018 to officially reveal their engagement. Their families met for the first time in Mumbai, India (where Chopra is from) to celebrate the couple's news.

    During an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in August 2018, Jonas explained that they started talking via text after a mutual friend connected them. Jonas and the "Quantico" actress remained friends because "our lives were taking us to different places." 

    When they finally saw each other in person months later, it "was kind of immediate."

    "We just knew it was right and jumped right in and we're very happy," the 26-year-old said. 

    He added that when their families met and participated in the Roka ceremony, they left "so full of joy." 

    "For she and I, I think it was just nice to be able to have that time with the family first and a private moment — and be able to share with the world afterwards."

    Julie chen

    • Julie Chen confirmed Tuesday afternoon she is leaving CBS' daytime talk show, "The Talk.
    • The decision comes after Chen's husband, Leslie Moonves, departed as CEO of CBS Corporation. He was accused of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
    • Chen has been on the show since its start in October 2010.
    • In a statement, CBS thanked Chen "for the dedication and passion she brought to the show every day and for her generous role as an ambassador for CBS Daytime."

    Julie Chen confirmed Tuesday on CBS' "The Talk" that she's leaving the daytime talk show. 

    "I have been at 'The Talk' since the day it started nine years ago and the cast, crew, and staff have become family to me over the years. But right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I've decided to leave 'The Talk,'" Chen said in a recorded message from the "Big Brother" set that aired on Tuesday's show. "I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared."

    "Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for," Chen continued. "To everyone behind-the-scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much."

    Chen has been a part of the CBS series, in which several co-hosts discuss daily topics, since it started airing in 2010. CNN reported Chen would leave "The Talk" in a pre-taped message.

    Chen's departure comes after her husband, Leslie Moonves, left as the CEO of CBS Corporation. Moonves was accused of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct in two separate New Yorker stories.

    leslie moonves julie chen 2017

    After the original July story from Ronan Farrow, Chen stood by her husband in a statement on Twitter.

    "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years," Chen wrote. "Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader. He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement."

    She later emphasized that statement on "The Talk," saying the Twitter statement would be the only one she would ever make on the subject. 

    "Some of you may be aware of what has been going on in my life for the past few days," Chen said on "The Talk" at the end of July. "I have issued the one and only statement I will ever make on this topic on Twitter. And I will stand by that statement today, tomorrow, forever."

    julie chen the talk

    Shortly after "The Talk" aired, CBS released a statement on Chen's departure from the daytime show. 

    "For eight seasons, Julie Chen has co-hosted 'The Talk' with incredible energy, grace and professionalism. Her talents played a big role in our successful launch of CBS' first network daytime talk show, and in the series growth into an Emmy Award-winning broadcast," the network said in a statement. "All of us here have tremendous appreciation for the dedication and passion she brought to the show every day and for her generous role as an ambassador for CBS Daytime. We are grateful for her many other contributions, respect her decision and wish Julie all the best in everything she does."

    "The Talk" will carry on with creator Sara Gilbert ("The Conners") and co-hosts Eve, Sheryl Underwood, and Sharon Osbourne.

    CBS has not named a successor to Chen at the moment. But the "Big Brother" host mentioned that guest host Carrie Ann Inaba ("Dancing With the Stars") looked great at the table.

    "Carrie Ann, I don't know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair my Asian sister. I'm just saying," said Chen, who referred to herself, Osbourne, and Gilbert as "the original three musketeers.""I love you all and I know this show and the sisterhood it stands for will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this and I cannot be more proud to call you my friends. I love you."

    "Thank you Julie so much for the kind words. I created this show as a place for friends to come together," said a teary-eyed Gilbert before signing off of "The Talk.""We love you, Julie."

    sara gilbert the talk

    Chen also hosts CBS' reality series "Big Brother." On last Thursday's show, Chen signed off from the "Big Brother" house as "Julie Chen Moonves."

    The next episode of "Big Brother" will air on CBS Wednesday at 8 p.m. with Chen hosting.

    Gilmore Girls

    There are so many different elements that go into creating a television show, but perhaps no factor is as key as a good theme song. Title sequences introduce you to the vibe of a show, whether it's a dramatic ballad for a romance series or a peppy pop tune for a guilty-pleasure reality show.

    Whether you grew up watching cartoons during an after-school special or use Netflix binges to keep up with more intense shows, it's easy to get attached to a series' theme songs (after all, you do listen to it every time you stream an episode), but do you truly pay attention to who performs them?

    Some of your favorite singers in the game didn't just create hit songs for themselves, but they also set the mood for some of the classic television shows we all know and love. Read on to find out which theme songs of TV past and present were actually performed by famous artists.

    Hilary Duff brought the drama for "Laguna Beach."

    Before the Kardashians took over the reality TV show world on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," there was another California-based reality show in the early 2000s that got the ball rolling: "Laguna Beach."

    Lauren Conrad, Spencer, and Heidi Pratt, and Brody Jenner all got their start on this so-called reality show, and to amp up the drama, show creators borrowed Hilary Duff's now-iconic song "Come Clean" to ring in each episode.

    She also introduced the glam lives of teens on "My Super Sweet 16."

    Remember that cringe-worthy MTV show "My Super Sweet 16"where a camera crew followed around super rich and super spoiled teenagers as they planned over-the-top sweet sixteen parties? Then you can probably already imagine that theme song performed by none other than Hilary Duff.

    That's right, the Disney royalty lent her voice to not one, but two different reality shows. We can already picture the show's end card as Duff's croons "Sweet 16!" 


    Regina Spektor brought her own her indie-pop twist to "Orange Is The New Black."

    Anyone who watches the hit Netflix show "Orange Is The New Black" will immediately recognize the catchy and ironically upbeat theme song of the show, sung by indie pop sweetheart Regina Spektor.

    Spektor wrote "You've Got Time" specifically for the show, and OITNB creator Jenji Kohan told Entertainment Weekly it was her plan all along: "I listened to Regina's albums obsessively while writing the series, so I immediately thought of her for our theme song … I had total faith in her and she nailed it."

    jaleel white on full house

    "Full House" premiered on ABC on September 22, 1987. The show lasted for eight seasons and launched the careers of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who jointly played Michelle Tanner). The Tanner family grew over the course of the show — and included a few notable guest stars along the way.

    Musicians like Frankie Valli and The Beach Boys made appearances on "Full House," but they're not the only ones.

    Keep reading to find out which other celebrities have guest-starred on the hit show. 

    "Boy Meets World" star Danielle Fishel appeared on two episodes of "Full House."

    On season six, the actress played Jennifer P., one of three Jennifers (who were considered "the coolest girls in the fifth grade"). Stephanie later got her ears pierced so she could fit in with them. 

    NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar showed off his basketball skills and gave Uncle Jesse some tips.

    Abdul-Jabbar played himself on the show and refereed a charity basketball game called "Baskets for Bayview."

    "Wheel of Fortune's" Vanna White appeared in a dream that D.J. had while stressing over the S.A.T.

    D.J. feared that if she didn't ace the test, she wouldn't get accepted into Stanford University.

    Maroon 5 Kevin Winter Getty final

    • Maroon 5 has reportedly agreed to perform at Super Bowl LIII.
    • The band's frontman, Adam Levine, has said in the past that the band has been on the shortlist for years to play it.


    Maroon 5 has finally gotten the call to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. 

    According to reports in Us Weekly and Variety, the band was offered the gig and has accepted. Frontman Adam Levine has said in the past that the band has been on the shortlist to play the Super Bowl for years.

    Maroon 5 is currently on tour promoting its 2017 album, "Red Pill Blues."

    Playing halftime at the Super Bowl is a prized honor in music. Everyone from Lady Gaga to Prince has performed at it. Last year, Justin Timberlake had the honor at Super Bowl LII.

    Maroon 5 is certainly a safe choice for the NFL, and it will likely lead to some groans on social media. Even before the reports of the band playing Super Bowl LIII (on February 3, 2019), 2014 performer Bruno Mars took to Twitter pleading with the league to choose a hip-hop artist for the halftime show.

    At least we'll probably get to see Cardi B, as she's featured on the Maroon 5 song, "Girls Like You."

    "It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show," an NFL spokesman said to Business Insider when asked to confirm the reports. "We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show."

    • AMC is planning more shows and multiple movies based on "The Walking Dead," according to a new report in Bloomberg. 
    • One of the shows may take place overseas.
    • On September 12, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan teased they have at least 10 years of plans for the "Walking Dead."
    • Former "Walking Dead" showrunner Scott Gimple is overseeing the "Walking Dead" universe. 
    • AMC declined to comment on this story.

    Don't plan on zombies leaving AMC anytime soon. According to Bloomberg, the network reportedly plans to make multiple movies and more TV shows based in "The Walking Dead" universe. 

    According to Bloomberg, AMC has had talks with "several large media companies" about the various projects, which would be set in the zombie apocalypse. 

    AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan spoke about plans for the larger "Walking Dead" universe during Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference September 12. 

    "We have a plan to manage over the next decade, plus,"said Sapan. "That plan is a careful plan to respect the world of the fans of that world."

    According to multiple people who spoke with Bloomberg, AMC is planning several movies for a TV network or streaming service, which could spin-off into TV shows. At least one of the shows would be set in another country. 

    It sounds like the network may test the waters with a few different movies and if one of them really takes off with viewers, it may lead to a potential series. 

    AMC declined to comment on this story.

    Currently, AMC has one spin-off of "The Walking Dead.""Fear the Walking Dead" premiered on the network in 2015.

    Former "Walking Dead" showrunner Scott Gimple will be overseeing the "Walking Dead" TV universe. He was named to the role of chief content officer of "The Walking Dead" in January.

    Angela Kang, who has worked on the show since season two, takes over this season as showrunner as the zombie drama heads into its ninth season. While there's still plenty of comic source material to keep the show running for a few more seasons, some have been tuning out year after year.

    daryl michonne rick walking dead season 9

    With an average of about 9 million weekly viewers last season, "The Walking Dead" is still bringing in big numbers any other show would be happy with, but it's no secret the show's ratings have stumbled after introducing villain Negan in a season seven opener that many considered too brutal. During season eight, the ratings were in line with those of season one at a point after the death of a major character. 

    The news of more "Walking Dead" projects comes on the heels of the show's main star Andrew Lincoln departing the flagship show this season. AMC is advertising the first half of season nine as a television event called "Rick Grimes' final episodes." 

    the walking dead rick grimes

    It's expected that Lauren Cohan may leave as well from her role as Maggie on the zombie drama. The actress stars on a new ABC series, "Whiskey Cavalier," that will air in 2019.

    "The Walking Dead's" ninth season will premiere Sunday, October 7 at 9 p.m. on AMC.

    julie chen hoda kotb

    • Julie Chen confirmed she's leaving "The Talk" Tuesday.
    • On an episode of "Watch What Happens Live," Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie were asked their reactions to Chen's exit from the daytime show.
    • Kotb said Chen's decision made sense considering the co-hosts share so much of their personal lives daily with viewers. Chen wouldn't be able to — or comfortably able to — do the same.
    • Guthrie didn't have much to say, adding we "have to respect her [Chen]."

    Julie Chen announced Tuesday she is leaving daytime show "The Talk" in an emotional video.

    "Today" show co-host Hoda Kotb says that while it was a tough decision, it was one that made sense given the parameters of the CBS show.

    "That show, and I really love that show actually, you have to give so much of your own personal life in it, I think it would be hard. I sort of get it," Kotb said on "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.""It would be hard to be on that show if you couldn't share." 

    hoda on watch what happens live 2018

    If you've ever watched the daytime talk show, the show is stylized around a series of co-hosts discussing major stories and topics of the day. Often, they'll inject personal anecdotes and stories from their own lives to share with the audience. 

    Chen co-hosted "The Talk" since it premiered on CBS in 2010 alongside creator Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne. Her decision came after multiple accusations against her husband, Leslie Moonves, of sexual misconduct. 

    As a result, Moonves left his role as CEO of CBS Corporation in September. 

    "Right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I've decided to leave 'The Talk,'" Chen said Tuesday in a recorded message that aired on "The Talk.""I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared."

    chevy chase

    • Original cast member, Chevy Chase spoke with the Washington Post about "Saturday Night Live" and he was pretty frank about his feelings. 
    • He criticized the current cast and most seasons of the NBC variety show.
    • "I’d have to say, that after the first two years, it went downhill," said Chase.
    • Chase also said the current show has the "worst f---ing humor" in the world.

    Colin Jost and Michael Che’s rapport on “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” may have scored them the hosting gig at the 70th Emmy Awards, but the pair can’t count their “SNL” predecessor Chevy Chase as a fan.

    Chase was part of the original “SNL” cast that debuted in 1975 and established the “Update” segment, but he didn’t have kind words for the current show, now approaching its 44th season.

    “I’m amazed that Lorne [Michaels] has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—ing believe it,” Chase told the Washington Post. “That means a whole generation of s—heads laughs at the worst f—ing humor in the world. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s— than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.”

    It’s not just the current cast that Chase criticized — he hasn’t liked most of the most seasons of "SNL."

    Chevy Chase

    "I’d have to say, that after the first two years, it went downhill," Chase said. "Why am I saying that? Because I was in it? I guess. That’s a horrible thing to say. But certainly I never had more fun. I really loved it and enjoyed it. I didn’t see the same fun thing happening to the cast the next year."

    This is the second time that Chase has criticized the show recently. On an episode of Netflix’s “Norm Macdonald Has a Show,” the 74-year-old specifically called out the lackluster reading of the show’s catchphrase, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday night.”

    “I mean it just gets so bad,” Chase said about the delivery. “It seems like some guys are out there just to be the guy who says, ‘Live from New York,’ and then does it poorly. Anyway, that’s not nice of me to say, but…f— ’em.”

    Some previous coworkers of the star of classic comedy films like “Caddyshack” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation” haven’t exactly had glowing things to say about Chase, either. Former “SNL” cast member Terry Sweeney called him a “monster,” while his one-time “Community” co-star Donald Glover said Chase told him, “People think you’re funnier because you’re black."

    Despite all the animosity toward the show that launched his career, Chase still has hopes to return to Studio 8H.

    He appeared on the show’s 40th anniversary special in 2015, and even asked “SNL” creator and producer Michaels if he could host. And last November, Chase only had good things to say about late castmates John Belushi and Gilda Radner, and his memories at “SNL.”

    "I can’t tell you, to be up there, on that stage, doing that stuff," Chase said. "Oh, God, it was fun. I’ll tell you, I’d do it again in a minute."

    jersey shore cast

    Viewers came to love MTV's "Jersey Shore" over its six seasons for the wild cast members, ridiculous drama, and interesting lingo.

    Something "Jersey Shore" is also famous for is the fashion worn by the cast members of the show over the years.

    The cast, who all worked at a t-shirt shop on the boardwalk, wore t-shirts and flip-flops by day, and blinged out, cheetah print club attire by night.

    From skin-tight cheetah print to baggy sweatsuits, here are the most iconic outfits from MTV's "Jersey Shore's" original seasons. 

    When Angelina wore a metallic dress and sunglasses inside.

    While Angelina was known mostly for causing unnecessary drama and having a boyfriend, the self-proclaimed "Kim Kardashian of Staten Island" wore this outfit the night she completely ostracized herself from the rest of the cast. After clubbing, skin-tight metallic dress, sunglasses and all, she slapped The Situation, which ended her friendship with both him and Pauly D.

    When Snooki wore animal print and neon.

    Snooki loved a good skin-tight dress with a loud print, particularly animal prints. She also rocked neon heels showing she isn't afraid to take a fashion risk. 


    When Snooki wore a "sorry for partying" shirt.

    Snooki wore a "sorry for partying" shirt while seemingly partying. Her boots combined her two closet staples: fur and animal print.

    • Hulu is producing an eight-episode fourth season of "Veronica Mars," which will premiere in 2019, 12 years after the show's initial TV run ended and five years since the crowdfunded movie.
    • Alongside Warner Bros. Television, creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell will executive produce on the new season.
    • It has also acquired the rights to the previous three seasons of episodes, which will become available on Hulu in summer 2019.
    • The upcoming fourth season is based off "The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line," the first in a "Veronica Mars" book series. 
    • Here's the synopsis for the upcoming season from Hulu: "Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach."
    • Watch Bell's announcement below.

    • Bloomberg reported AMC has plans to carry on "The Walking Dead" universe for the next decade with a number of movies and TV show spin-offs. 
    • Executive producer, director, and visual effects makeup supervisor Greg Nicotero told INSIDER he imagines he would be involved in any projects, but hasn't heard anything yet.
    • He says he thinks it would be a great chance to explore the zombie apocalypse in other regions.
    • Nicotero is currently working on the second half of "The Walking Dead's" ninth season, which will air next year.

    AMC has yet to confirm a report about whether or not a bunch of more "Walking Dead" movie and show spin-offs are on the way, longtime executive producer, director and makeup supervisor Greg Nicotero is on board for new projects. 

    "I would imagine that I'll be involved," Nicotero told INSIDER of his involvement with any future "The Walking Dead" spin-offs. "To be honest, they haven't really gotten too much into that stuff just yet because we've been up to our eyeballs filming ['The Walking Dead'] in Georgia right now."

    According to a report in Bloomberg, AMC is planning a series of movies and TV show spin-offs for the next decade that will take place in the "Walking Dead" universe. At least one of the shows is expected to take place in another country.

    "I was pleasantly surprised to see that announcement," continued Nicotero, referring to the Bloomberg story. "But none of the content or the stories or that direction has really been shared with any of us yet. But if they called today, 'Hey, let's have a call about it.'"

    Nicotero told us he just finished editing the mid-season premiere of "The Walking Dead's" ninth season. He's been involved with the show before the first season premiered on AMC in 2010. At the moment, he says he wouldn't have time to work on any other project. 

    "We're right in the thick of it. The two or three weeks before we premiere — and getting cuts and finishing production — this is probably the busiest time we have on the show," said Nicotero.

    In the past, Nicotero has expressed his interest in seeing what "The Walking Dead" would look like overseas with INSIDER. He said he'd still love to see that happen. 

    "For sure! Listen, I'm all for that," said Nicotero. "I think it would be great to get a chance to explore more locales and whatever story we will come up with."

    That wouldn't be out of reach. On the season one finale, Dr. Jenner says communications went down at the CDC, but there may be other people alive in other locations. Jenner also briefly mentions France.

    A one-off comic called "The Walking Dead: Alien," featuring Rick Grimes' brother, takes place in Spain. 

    AMC declined comment on reports of "The Walking Dead" spin-off TV shows and movies.

    "The Walking Dead" will return to AMC Sunday, October 7 at 9 p.m.

    Big Bang theory

    As the year flies by, the list of canceled TV shows piles up.

    While there's been somewhat of a quiet period since May, some networks are still cutting shows throughout the summer.

    The most recent cancellation comes from AMC, which just confirmed to Vulture that "Dietland" will end after only one season.

    ABC canceled the previously renewed "Roseanne" revival in late May, after Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. However, ABC announced a spin-off called "The Conners" without Barr coming this fall.

    In other notable cancellations, USA's critically acclaimed "Mr. Robot" will end with its upcoming fourth season, and CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" is ending after 12 seasons. 

    We'll update this list as more are announced.

    Here are all the shows that have been canceled this year, including those from networks and Netflix:
