chicago code review 320 'The Chicago Code,' 'Human Target,' others canceled: FOX makes room for the newIn our excitement about Fox’s new pickups – like Zooey Deschanel’s “The
New Girl” – we almost forgot that in order to make room for the new, Fox
has to axe the old.

In this case, we’re saying goodbye to freshman drama “The Chicago Code” and comedies “Traffic Light” and “Breaking In.” We’ve also seen the end of “Human Target.”

“Human
Target’s” cancellation comes as no surprise. The action adventure
series, starring Mark Valley as Christopher Chance, was relegated to
Friday nights with its 13 episode season burned off by early February.

Shawn
Ryan’s police drama, “The Chicago Code,” filmed on location in the
Windy City, floundered in the ratings, as did “Traffic Light.” We are
definitely going to miss “Breaking In,” which was surprisingly funny in
its post-“American Idol” slot, though it struggled to maintain the
“Idol” audience.

Ouch. Bloodbath.

EDIT: “Lie To Me” has also been scratched from the schedule.
