CBS may un-cancel Code Black
The Rob Lowe-Marcia Gay Harden medical drama was canceled on May 24 after three seasons, but it has performed well in the nine episodes that aired following the cancelation through its July 18 "series finale." CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said at TV press tour that Code Black has done so well, he's seriously considering bringing it back from cancelation. "It's doing incredibly well. It's a well-done show, and we'd like to figure out a way to maybe make it work," he said, adding: "Economics are a little challenging to be honest, but it's certainly performing well, and we're going to take a look." On June 14, Lowe pointed out on Twitter that Code Black was still performing well despite its cancelation. "I wonder how (cancelled) 'Code Black' being the NUMBER ONE show of the night, fits into CBS new business model. Asking for a friend (and a crew of 150 people)"
