Over on the cable end, the TNT network decided not to renew "Monday Mornings," the primetime drama based on the book of the same name, from CNN's Sanja Gupta.

"Monday Mornings" starred former "Law & Order: LA" actor Alfred Molina, and "Law & Order: UK" star Jamie Bamber.

"TNT has decided not to renew the medical drama 'Monday Mornings' for a second season. We are extremely grateful to executive producers David E. Kelly, Bill D'Elia and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on whose novel the series was based. They crafted a unique and powerfully moving drama full of memorable situations and characters brought to life by a terrific ensemble cast. Unfortunately the show never built its audience enough to warrant its continuation. We wish everyone involved with Monday Mornings the best and hope to work with them again in the future," TNT said in a statement.

TNT also pulled the plug on another season of "Southland."

Over on CBS, four shows were axed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter "CSI: NY" and "Rules of Engagement" were being canceled alongside freshman dramas "Vegas" and "Golden Boy."

Reacting to the news on Twitter, "Vegas" co-creator Greg Walker wrote, "Sad news, friends. No Season 2 for @Vegas_CBS. Thanks for all your love and support. I am deeply proud of our show."

"Vegas" star Jason O'Mara noted in his Tweet that the show pulled in 10 million viewers.

Reps for CBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Access Hollywood on Friday afternoon.
