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

This sitcom drew poor ratings from the start and is no longer welcome in the NBC family.

Wilfred (FXX)
Ryan and his big canine pal are moving to FXX for the fourth and final season.

Note: 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. The Michael J. Fox Show has also been removed because NBC maintains it’s not cancelled. Unless there’s a ratings miracle, it will be. Ripper Street has been removed because it was cancelled after two seasons but was later revived.

Honestly they cancel such good, Nikita. Honestly such a good show great characters and awesome action. It had honestly good writing that found a way to keep you watching and now it’s cancelled. Ya know maybe if there wasn’t so much reality junk on tv people could actually find time to appreciate the good stuff.


Louise Lenny November 4, 2013 at 9:20 pm

Why do they keep cancelling the good shows and bring all these reality crap shows . Don’t care what Kardashians go thru or any other famous people. Thats not our reality. We want shows that are interesting but they keep getting rid of them. We pay for our cable so we should get the shows we want!!!!! The Glades and The killing really!!!!!

Not at all surprised about Back In The Game getting the boot, it was an awful show, terrible writers, & Maggie could do so much better, she should fire her agent. Maggie Lawson is gorgeous, sweet and incredibly talented and i love her as Juliet O’Hara on Psych. Psych is still running and she will be in most of season 8 and now that her schedule has freed up, if season 8 of Psych does well we may even get a season 9. This is actually good news. :)

They really need to cancel Glee…the first two or three seasons were ok, but after that, it lost direction and had no real stars or story line anymore. It got new characters, but kept focusing on the old ones. It’s lived way past its lifespan.

I watched the preview episode of Ironside…I love Raymond Burr so I figured when they decided to remake the thing and be politically correct, It would suck supremely. It wasn’t as bad as I thought, but it made no sense because if a cop is injured like that today, they’ll medically retire him…they wouldn’t let him stay on active duty patrol…

666 Park Avenue was starting to get good then they cancelled it. They brought back one episode to wrap up everything, which didn’t. I’ve never seen the rest of the shows because they look totally stupid and worthless. We are Men looked totally inane just by the commercials…I’m not surprised it was cancelled. Brooklyn 99 looked amusing on commercials, but it was asinine.

That’s why I like the educational programs like “The World’s Weirdest Weather” on the Weather Channel. Even the educational channels decided to go with their own version of non-”reality” shows.

I can’t believe The Glades went off like it did! It’s no wonder a lot of shows don’t do well, people don’t want to start watching something, get hooked and then have it cancelled out from under them. :(

My thoughts about what’s on this list:
Please not Gravity Falls,
Please not Gravity Falls,
Please not Gravity Falls,
Please not Gravity Falls,
Repeat ad infinite

I am going to miss The Glades, True Blood and The Cleveland Show


jennifer wilson October 29, 2013 at 3:39 pm

i am too! the Glades was a good show, and true blood is the best! i am also going to miss Army wives, and warehouse 13 :(


Tiffany November 4, 2013 at 3:58 pm

It’s too bad networks are too busy looking at numbers to see a good show for what it is. I think that’s what happened to Glades and Warehouse 13.


Tom October 24, 2013 at 4:11 am

I had just started watching 666 park ave and I heard that it will be cancelled too. I hope not


admin October 24, 2013 at 7:36 am

Just like Good Luck Charlie is ending after it’s fourth season, Shake It Up will also end after this third and final season! Should be on the list! ;)
