The news keeps coming from ABC.

On the heels of 10 renewals and 8 series pick-ups, the network has canceled a pair of comedies: neither Trophy Wife nor Mixology will move ahead with a second season.

Trophy Wife and Mixology

ABC is yet to confirm either axing, Marcia Gay Harden Tweeted of (wildly underrated) Trophy Wife “Thank u 4 watching beloved fans. Parting is such sweet sorrow... @TrophyWifeABC cancelled just hours ago,” while Frankie Shaw added of (AWFUL) Mixology:

"Sad day. Love to all you #Mixology fans. Keep watching! Great episodes left, esp the finale. xoxoxoxo."

Trophy Wife and Mixology join the already-dead The Assests, Back in the Game, Betrayal, Killer Women, Lucky 7, Mind Games and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland on ABC.

UPDATE: ABC has also canceled Neighbors.

Here's a look, meanwhile, at some shows that will take their place:

How To Get Away with Murder
From Shonda Rhimes, starring Viola Davis. Centers on a criminal defense professor (Davis) who is tangled up in a murder plot that rocks the entire university.

I totally agree. lets boycott tv altogether and not watch anything anymore...then the networks will have no viewers and no ratings and then they will have to close their doors...its time we as fans take charge...

How are shows supposed to build a fan base when they keep canceling them like this! Why start watching a show and getting into it if it's gonna be canceled anyway! I am so sad... Trophy Wife was great... And even the Neighbors had cute possiblities.... Networks are annoying. Invest the money into shows and build them, you don't have to scrap everything and start a new with more shows that no one will wanna start watching out of fear it will be cancelled! Wake up!!!!!

WTH. I loved Trophy Wife. I'm so sick of these stations canceling everything I enjoy. It's getting really old. Maybe I should just stick with Hulu and Amazon.
