My Name I Earl was left off for some reason, but it also was cancelled. Ironically, when I started getting into it a couple years ago, I said that it would get cancelled just because I started watching it, and sure enough, that's what happened.

So, looking over this list, are there any shows that you wish weren't cancelled? Glad that are gone?

Most of those are ones I've never heard of. However, I don't watch a whole lot of TV. One that I really enjoyed, though, was Without a Trace.

PJ said...

wow, that was quite a list...hehehe

Chocolate News was one of the few reasons for me to even care about Comedy Central (Sarah Silverman is one of the other reasons.)

No! Reaper not dead yet. According to TV expert Nick C. (http://nickctv.wordpress.com/) ABC Studios is talking with Spike TV and SciFi too! We're asking Reaper fans to write to both today, and your CW affiliate or your local tv station, and ask them to pick up Reaper! More details at http://reaperdmv.com

Sherry- same here, but it still is quite a hefty list of shows that have been cancelled

PJ- wasn't it, though?

C.B. - i loved it, too. I also like South Park and Root of All Evil. Shame they didn't cancel that Dmitri Martin show, though.

catko-i'm not holding my breath about it

I really like The Unusuals and I'm still upset about Terminator! I love Battlestar Galactica but never saw it on TV. Rented the first and second season so I have to catch on. Have stayed away from spoilers!

I miss ER and Lipstick Jungle. I enjoyed the characters.

My Own Worst Enemy and Privileged, I wish they had given these shows a chance to grow.

Life in Mars, I had started to liked the show when they canceled it. Didn't like the ending, they could have done something better.

Osbournes Reloaded, so glad they canceled it! That show was disgusting and vulgar and believe me it I'm no prude.

Kyle XY, have to watch the last season online 'cause I missed it.
