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.

The X Factor (FOX)
Simon Cowell has decided to return to the UK version and FOX says there’s no US show without him. The ratings for season three were also pretty awful.

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.

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

Cancel walking dead already! There is no reason to drag that show out past 5 seasons. The Writing is horrendous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Penney Nile January 15, 2014 at 6:39 pm

I’m sorry to see ‘Tue Blood’ go, even though the last couple of seasons lost their appeal for me what with Sookie and Bill’s romance going down the tubes. That was what made the series for me, and if HBO can’t bring it back in better form,then it’s truly time to stake the show.


Livus48 January 3, 2014 at 5:00 am

I really think Body of proof should come back,the show was really entertaining ,and the cast and crew did a great job.
As for some of the other show ex.Californication,it was enough,
Low winter sun had great potential,with a great cast,but it was so so dark,and that I think stoped people from watching.


mike January 2, 2014 at 3:34 am

please cancel walking dead enough with zombie’s


Audrey January 1, 2014 at 12:37 pm

I hate that Jimmy Fallon, A.N.T Farm, and Good Luck Charlie will be over. I loved those shows SO much! :’(


Martha May December 17, 2013 at 6:31 pm

Only one of the many that are being cancelled I watched and that was Warehouse 13 and I was getting a little bored with that. So it goes to show what I watch is good, glad I am good at something


Jim J. December 9, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Add “Californication” to this list. It’s been announced today that Season 7 will be the venerable Showtime series’s last.


dawn f February 3, 2014 at 11:50 pm

i love californication,
i guess it will just save me money as i now only have to order showtime for this last season, hank get the girl please. and then only once a year probably this last for Shameless”


K. Hutchison December 5, 2013 at 4:35 pm

Can we PLEASE renew The White Queen?!


dawn f February 3, 2014 at 11:51 pm

here here!! love that show!! was it starz? they have a habit of cancelling great shows, loved Camelot too.


Apocalypse Girl December 1, 2013 at 11:55 pm

Somehow I was under the impression that the networks actually cared about producing tolerable programming. This fall season proved me dead wrong, but at least some dead weight will be shed.

Back in the Game–My question is who thought this could fly in the first place?
Ironside–This was not the kind of police drama that would swim well among the sharks. Again, why did NBC do it in the first place?
Lucky 7–Craps or crap?
Treme–I guess Katrina is enough of a memory by now…not…
Warehouse 13–It’s been re-imagined so many times that no one will notice its absence.
We Are Men–Here we had a horrible idea, tacky writing, and Jerry O’ Connell in a Speedo. Yikes.
Welcome to the Family–I’m sorry…did this ever really happen?


Kate Fredericks December 4, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Hahaha, AG! I didn’t recognize most of the shows listed and Warehouse 13? I thought it was cancelled last year!!! On the bright side, we did get a couple of watch-worthy shows – The Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow. Thank goodness the governor is FINALLY a Walking Dead! Hopefully this show will find its oomph again. And they found Brody!!!!! This was a pretty dismal season on Homeland, too. But you were spot on and very funny!


Mamabear November 30, 2013 at 3:03 am

How can a network promote an upcoming show, build it for its debut in 2014, and cancel it before it even airs. I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. That is proof right there that we the public have no say so over what we watch. Plus, one show they listed that said aired poorly brought in triple the amount of viewers than one of the shows that got green lighted for a second season. I don’t see how they can cancel Us and Them when we haven’t even had the chance to decide if we like it.


conny November 27, 2013 at 5:36 pm

Used to look forward to Friday night to watch Nikita. Sorry to see it gone.


admin November 27, 2013 at 6:40 pm

There are still five episodes left.


Pikachu November 22, 2013 at 4:51 pm

You forgot to add Necessary Roughness to the list. It’s already been cancelled.


admin November 22, 2013 at 8:17 pm

That was added to the 2012-13 list because it ended in August.


Alice November 18, 2013 at 10:32 am

I absolutely love The Crazy Ones. It is the #1 new comedy this season. I liked Ironside, but thought it wouldn’t make it, because the flashback scenes were weak. I’m curious if Betrayal will last with the wife as the cheater in the relationship.


Lorenzo November 15, 2013 at 7:18 am

It is disasupporting to see another good sci-fi show come to an end. Warehouse 13 was excellent. The stories were diverse and imaginative.
Good Luck Charlie was one the best shows on Disney, but I can understand it’s end as the lead character has reached the age to go off to college. Disney needs a good replacement show with parents in the house.


Teresa November 13, 2013 at 9:58 pm

The crazy ones is horrible. It needs to GOOOOO! Good Luck Charlie was one of the few good ones Disney had left!


truedat December 24, 2013 at 3:07 pm

The Crazy One’s is hilarious if your a fan of Robin Williams work. the problem that causes is most fans for Robin is 35+ age group.
