Ask Matt: Cancellations, Louie, Finales (Person of Interest, Castle, Blacklist, More)

Question: I am sure many people were disappointed by the cancellation announcements this year. I was especially sad to see Trophy Wife taken too soon. But it left me wondering why ABC didn't try a different time slot, and then I realized overall it seemed as though none of the networks moved shows around the schedule like they have done in the past. Do you think this strategy helps or hurts shows struggling to find an audience? — Rob

Critic's Notebook: The Network Upfronts

Robin Lord Taylor, Benjamin McKenzie

A curious rite of mid-May: Even as the broadcast networks are wrapping their regular seasons with a flurry of cliffhangers and finale events — farewell, Cristina Yang, and a toast to those soon-to-be-newlyweds Mitch and Cam — all eyes in the industry are already looking to the future, with a just-concluded Upfront Week of noisy presentations in New York in which new series and schedules are announced with a fanfare that probably beats the alternative: blowing taps for all the failed series announced last year at this time.

I'm still processing that Castle cliff-hanger. Who ran Castle's car off the road? — Linda
Although there are a number of possibilities (3XK comes to mind, for example), it sounds like at least one person isn't involved: the recently arrested Sen. William Bracken. "I think that aspect of the mythology is closed now," creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Beckett knows who killed her mother. If there's further storytelling there, I think we're going to be breaking new ground." And for those fans miffed that we didn't get to see Castle and Beckett's wedding, look on the bright side: The show will have a fresh budget to work with in Season 7! "That's right," Marlowe says with a laugh. "We were running on fumes, financially, at the end of this year." When can we expect our diamond-encrusted invite?

I'm confused about The Blacklist. Did the burn scars on Red's back mean that he's Liz's father?  — Evan
