    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    I watched a few of those. Intelligence, rake, revolution and enlisted. I really liked Rake. Enlisted had some funny moments.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    The networks are so quick to kill some shows that they don't even have a chance to build a fanbase. They just promote the crap out of a show and then quickly pull the plug if numbers don't justify all the fanfare that the networks put on it themselves. But, as a fan, why even invest in a new show until the buzz on it is good enough that you know it is going to make it?

    I think they are hurting themselves with the current model.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    I don't have cable so my show intake is limited but I really liked Revolution. This season has definitely not been as good as the first, but I am sad to see it go. Hopefully they knew it was coming so they can put some kind of closure on it.

    It's because the overwhelming majority of shows don't build a fan base over time and either lose or keep the same number of viewers. If the show isn't hot out of the gates, after all of the fanfare and aggressive marketing leading up to the premiere, it's likely dead. The odds of a show becoming the next Seinfeld are small.

    That business model isn't unique to TV shows, either. You make a product, you put it out there, and if it fails then you pull the plug. It's usually better to move on and try something new than to keep pumping money and resources into a turd hoping that eventually it will catch on.

    I'll miss Legit if it gets axed. I still can't believe they got rid of Happy Endings last year, that was one of the funniest new shows in a long time.

    Happy Endings was solid.

    Mine too :( She just started watching within the last year so she records every episode. TNT plays reruns of that crap show constantly and I'm really tired of having to cancel them so I can watch/record decent stuff.

    The only show I watched was Growing up Fisher, which I thought was pretty good. I guess a blind lawyer was never meant to be.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    What brilliant TV exec had the idea to give Minnie Driver a sitcom and use one of the highest rated show on TV as its lead in? I think just about any Joe off the street could make better decisions than that. I am not exaggerating when I say she actually frightens me when I happen to have the TV on that channel during that time.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    Don't understand all the hate for Castle. One of the few shows both my wife and I like. If you want to cancel something that is popular, cancel Scandal, it is horrible, stupid, poorly written, and completely mindless. They just keep making up more insane plot lines to make it shocking.

    Not surprised by a lot of these cancellations, but did not even watch a lot of these. Mixology was hard to watch, Mind Games was a good idea but Zahn's (sp) character was just to crazy, Trophy wife was a bad idea although I did like the quirky second wife, Lucky 7, just plain stupid. Honestly, I can't believe that someone was stupid enough to okay production on half of these shows.

    Nathan Fillion? Take that back! Watch a couple episodes of Firefly and I think you will change your opinion of him. I agree though that Castle was and is not a good show, and his part is lackluster at best.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    A couple of expected cancellations (Super Fun Night, The Crazy Ones, Bad Teacher, Dads) and a few that I kind of liked (Suburgatory, Growing Up Fisher). I really don't want to see Community go, as I think it was finally starting to pick up again from a couple of lame seasons, but it's probably time.
