Family Tools - I thought this had potential.   After only 2-3 episodes it has been dropped

Fringe - It was better when it forst started and didn't have the ongoing love interest or plot thing.

Burn Notice - Big bummer!   Hot chicks, explosions and humor.   Love the show.   Bruce Cambell is great.

How to live with your parents - Brad Garrett should always be in a sitcom.   The guy is great.

I know it's years old now, but I'm still really really annoyed that they cancelled Firefly after only 13 episodes and a movie.  That was one of the greatest shows of all time.

More recently, they've cancelled Eureka.  That was a bummer because that also was one of my favourites.

To the OP, I think Fringe had slowly run its course.  It was one of my favourite shows, but after a while it just began to feel like the X-Files - very little forward momentum in story, throwing up more questions than answers, that kind of thing.

The Adventures of Merlin was also cancelled after 5 seasons just last year, but I think they did the right thing with that one and ended the series properly, with an actual end rather than a Cliffhanger.

Totally agree.    The show was very cool when each episode was its own and it was about a different supernatural subject each episode.

I can't believe they cancelled 'Rules of Engagement'.

Go On was way better than Community this past season and I can't believe it was cancelled. The writing was so tight and the acting was great. Next year there is pretty much nothing I will be watching. TV can go to Hell.

I am still fuming over
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip


tv dot com link






I have heard from someone claiming to be in the TV 'industry' that network studios don't want a super size hit that over shadows the rest of the stable ...
WHat they want is a studio output of 'balanced' series across the board ... makes lives better and easier for the suits

I can see why .... and I guess we can see the results ....\

Studio 60 was great. I love how Mark McKinney ('s character) came back and basically saved the show. Just like he really did for SNL (sorta).

As I understood it. Firefly gained a lot of following after the show went under.

As for Merlin. I was a great TV show and actually gained viewers over the course of the series, unlike many other tv shows. They stuck to their schedule of only 5 seasons. Which is better than some tv shows turning it into a cash cow then having quality drop until it lingers on and dies.

Yeah, it sucks that Burn Notice is ending after this season.  I love the setup of narration with Jeffrey Donovan and him explaining the spy stuff and technical aspects.  The show is funny and great as far as quality goes.  Ever notice that the best shows have fewer episodes per season and end shortly?  Meanwhile the crappy shows get a minimum of 10 seasons, go figure.

There is a grain of truth in every conspiracy known to man, you just have to be intelligent enough to find it.

Dark Skies. A challenger to the X-Files with it's alternate history, aliens and conspiracies. And they had a continuing story to it (that is, every episode is important to watch if you want to understand the plot).

Millennium is another one which "kind of" ended on a cliffhanger. Stargate Universe perhaps, but the whole Stargate thing had been repeated so many times that they really didn't bring anything new, and really, how much Stargate was Stargate Universe really? Remove the gates and you've got an entirely new series...

I was going to say The Trailer Park Boys but then a quick search just provided me with this AWESOME information. I hope it's true.

Loved Firefly and Eureka and The Gates!  Why do they cancel great shows to promote "reality tv"?  I already deal with reality.  The whole reason I watch tv is to escape from it!
