TV Scorecard: Which Shows Have Been Renewed or Canceled in 2017?

On What TV Shows Would You Want to Be an Extra?

I recently learned of a Mad Men contest in which fans are challenged to submit videos of themselves doing line readings from the show to possibly win a walk-on role. How fun would that be? You'd get to wear an amazing costume and be a part of a set that is essentially transported to the 1960s.

It got me thinking about other shows that might be interesting for a fan to be a part of. Of course, it would be exciting to be on set for a filming of Lost — not just for the beautiful locale, but also to learn some of the super secretive plot points in advance. I'd be intrigued to check out Pushing Daisies and find out how much of that show is special effects and how much is actually a set. There doesn't seem to be much extra work available on The Office, but it seems like that cast has a ton of fun at work, and I'd love to be a part of that, however temporarily.

What about you? If there were a contest to win an extra role on your favorite show, would you enter it? And which show — or shows — would get you to try?

For me it would be: Doctor Who or Torchwood Hey, I'd get to finally take my first trip on a plane not to mention finally get out of the country for a while. The added bonus is being on one of my two favorite shows, although hopefully not as some form of monster LOL.

I'd like to be an extra on the Tudors. Wearing one of those costumes would be cool.

The first thing that came to mind was, no doubt, Sex and the city. I know, its done.. but who wouldnt love to spend a day in Dior or Channel clothes and Manolo Blahnik shoes? (Possibly keep me in mind for the sequel supposedly coming out in the hopefully near future? haha) And well, someone mentionned Grey's Anatomy, and I must say I wouldnt mind being part of it :) And possibly "the hills", anyone?

I'd love to be the Patient of the Week on House. Would love to do anything for the Office, Brothers and Sisters, Lost, or Friday Night Lights. Mad Men would be really cool as well, and I'd love to be on Battlestar Galactica!

I always thought it'd be cool to be a body on CSI. haha. Plus, the entire show's about you ;) I'd love to be on The Office, Desperate Housewives (you'd be sure to wear some great clothes), or Weeds. Those are the few that come to mind.
