Note: Community has been removed because it’s been picked up by Yahoo for season six. Single Ladies has been removed because it’s been revived by Centric. Last Call with Carson Daly has been removed from the list because, at least for now, NBC has decided to keep it going with Daly as host.

What do you think? Have any of your favorite shows been cancelled? Which ones are you sorry to see end?

Both Longmire and The Glades are good shows. Glades was gone this season and now Longmire is being cancelled. Ridiculous. Longmire is terrific. I am so disappointed. Some shows that are stupid don’t get cancelled. It’s hard to fathom. Longmire is always good. If it’s true another channel might pick it up…good. Let A and E come to regret it.

I don’t really understand how the Cancellation System works, anymore??? The people upstairs used to wait until the program has had at least two seasons, so the public could find its “regular spot”, since it takes three or four actual viewings to get in touch with the characters, the theme, the pace of the Program/Channel, and that takes, essentially, an entire season to get to know the program and make an experiential decision based on all a person’s senses, the human factors of habitual patterning to know if each of these programs are offering the community something worthwhile to the betterment of our society? It not simply about “does it offer excitement, chaos and drama and high ratings”, but far more, does the program become a good overall moral compass for us…. does it??? and if not, what does it seems motivated by money, now more than ever! Some of these programs like MASH and STAR TREK took two or three seasons to stay afloat in the affiliates that only looked at programs which made the networks money, but they were willing to see a program a real chance…knowing with the thousands of channels there are available these days, that it might take some one like me several seasons it a weekly chance to find it, give it time and energy to find out if its worth it??? SO, there might be a bit of time for many of the people to see the ads, get to the station on time, and find out about what each of the thousands series there are about, and then to see if it has something to offer their family? Then it may take another season to grow fond of and interested in the series, week after week? Why will the decision makers not give the viewers a bit of time to do this…rather then just assuming “all have seen it, have tuned in week after week and then blew it off,” when in fact, they hadn’t even found it, yet…and if they did, it was at the very end, when the plug had already been pulled!
This season, I loved “DRACULA” or “PENNY DREADFUL” and many other classic stories being retold in a series. that were so acceptable and yes, it was an already told story, but it had a “new take” on the stories, making them interesting, again! So what if not everyone tuned in from day one, and it was a little slow, but hat happens when your already being told in the first two episodes, that you’re being cancelled. People tend to let go of trying, when the plug and the mat is being pulled out from under you, before your effort is even given a serious review…only review it got was how many viewers/dollars can this series make us? NOT, how many people can we get interested, and how can we encourage the producers/directors to bring the excitement factor up, even though its a story told over and over? How can we help? NOT “CUT, on to the next one! Please, where is my lunch! Get on with it! I don’t have time for this!”
Many of these shows do not offer this compass, at all, yet they continue, to my amazement…ex., Housewives of (fill in the blank)”ted women whining yet happy to sta great example of uneduca is a It’s about pace, structure, plot, good talent and leadership, ability to maintain a solid balance, and allowing the followers time to find and get to know what the series is attempting to bring us, allowing the viewers time to get to know its purpose & connecting with its purpose/characters, and then to decide if it aligns with the reality of our everyday life and goals of society…to assist us in growing, helping us to mature as a human race and so on…some of the series that I see gaining in their ratings have little of the above in whether its helping society…but rather bringing our society down by teachers to build meth labs and sell drugs to students or cops posing as a cop when theyre really serial killers pretending they’re modern day robin hoods, etc…!
Those are the types higher ratings??? THIS IS REALLY DISCONCERTING FOR ME! pproval because of theirof the a shows who suposedly get the ok or sus its okay for …those are the ones that seem to be the ones who gain the “GO” from those upstairs? I don’t get what the CEO’s are trying to accomplish with shutting down some amazing pieces of work..LATELY…for example BELIEVE, which seemed to be getting better and better but was switching its premise, likely because it was being “warned” and I can see where there was chaos from that point in the plots each week. I also watched the same thing happen with THE LISTENER, and one of the better ones called, THE KILLER. All of these were amazing writers, cast, directors, producers, etc…next thing that will go will be EXTANT or HELIX…or perhaps its just that I haven’t heard yet?

Eastbound and Down is really funny and glad to see Hispanic community in the map in spite of the bad representation at times. But this is what comedy is all about and Kenny brings it! Why it was cancelled? This show is really funny and follows a story unlike many others that do not. Please bring it back!

Rake was a great program and Greg Kinnear done a great job. Hope somehow it comes back. Raising Hope and The Neighbors were classic. I dont know how they will get much better than those programs. I hope they are also brought back.
