Warehouse 13 (Syfy)
In May 2013, the cable channel announced that they were renewing the series for a fifth but final season of six episodes.

We Are Men (CBS)

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?

I’m an older gent, what I see on TV today isn’t that good. Reality shows are getting old. I believe the networks don’t give some new shows much of a chance, “Ironsides” could find viewers if given a chance, 3 episodes does not let a show develop an audience. Then most shows are not family entertainment anymore, whatever happen to clean shows for the family.

Why is “Good luck Charlie” ending? That’s an excellent show! I’m 35 and I love it! Want to get rid of a show? Get rid of “Shake it up” you talk about stupid. The show is supposed to be about two girls dancing on TV and really being great at it, right? Well they stink! All they do is hop and jump up and down. No moves not even dance steps at all. Not even with their hands. Really, Disney flopped with this one!

I’m going to miss Nikita but the ratings don’t justify keeping the show around. I’m sure it’s expensive to make.

Bring back CSI Miami. Their excuse about cost? It was the most popular and highest rated of all the CSI/NCIS dramas. If Burn notice could do it, then so could they. BTW…wished Michael Weston’s Mom would’ve come up with some crafty way of surviving that bomb alive and unscathed while the bad guys got destroyed or caught and put away.

“Dads” is truly awful, IMO. I couldn’t even get through one ep. I didn’t change the channel during “welcome …”, but I wouldn’t miss it if it were gone.

I’ve read on a Québec website that The Mentalist will end this season, since show Creator and executive producer Bruno Heller said that Season 6 should be the end and Patrick Jane is going to find Red John!

That’s not quite the same as saying that the show is officially ending. If you have the link, I’d like to read it. Thanks!

Add to the “awful” list: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sean Saves the World, Super Fun Night, Trophy Wife and The Goldbergs. For dramas, Hostages is a complete dud, so boring I could use it to overcome insomnia.

DK October 14, 2013 at 12:58 pm

I actually like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Trophy Wife and the Goldbergs; as for Hostages I havent given up on it yet.

I actually like Sean Save the World. Only comedy in years that has kept my attention. I’m more of a mystery person.
