Both my husband and I thought that Growing Up Fisher was finally a comedy worth keeping and never dreamed it would be cancelled. I enjoyed The Crazy Ones too.

The best part about waiting for shows to appear on Netflix, is in knowing if the show will have a proper ending! Thoroughly dislike being emotionally involved with characters/shows only to be left hanging. And Jackie was right. They should respect audiences enough to give us an ending.

I’m personally not watching any new shows until they have lasted long enough to be shown on Netflix. I still can’t reconcile my irritation with the idea that “Surface” was cancelled without a wrap up to explain things, but I took a chance on a couple of shows that are now being cancelled without a closure for the fans.. and I’m done. The networks can go fly a kite and kiss my grits.
The Tomorrow People and Star Crossed are being cancelled? With no explanations of resolution of the plot line? That shows such disrespect for audiences… and networks wonder why they can’t raise ratings or generate enthusiasm for new shows.

Some of my favorite shows have been cancelled. I definitely qualify as a TV show enthusiast with an ecclectic interest in programs. I don’t watch reality television show s, I prefer scripted series. Therefore I am saddened by the news that Almost Human, Believe, Crisis, The Crazy Ones, Dads, Intelligence, The Neighbors, and Revolution are gone next season! Almost Human needed better scripts, but the premise was great, so did Believe. Crisis was getting very interesting the last few weeks. I loved The Crazy Ones, Dads, and The Neighbors. They made me laugh hysterically as does The Big Bang Theory!!! Intelligence was awesome and engaging. Revolution was freaky and harass… too bad ratings are used to determine success rather than quality, because most of the inexpensively produced reality shows are definitely NOT my idea of quality entertainment. Highly disappointed!

I recently started watching Surviving Jack and thought it was well written and funny. I’m sorry to see it go. But I’m super angry about no closure for The Tomorrow People and Star Crossed. I’d rather watch Japanese Anime that try to get into a new show and have it cancelled without a wrap up to the story line. “Surface”…. I always think of “Surface” when a show I like is cancelled. There should be an agreement that if a show is cancelled the final airing should contain the answers to plot devices.

I think all the stations suck big time because they have cancelled a BUNCH of my favorite shows. What is wrong with them? Do they think everyone is stupid and just want so-called “reality” shows???? It might not even be worth getting “local channels” anymore.

Donna May 11, 2014 at 3:43 pm

I am beginning to agree with you about the “local channels”. I might call Dish and see if I can remove them and watch what I can online or not. At least I won’t be tempted to see new shows coming if I don’t have the channels and then I won’t care what I miss or not. Many of my favorites have been cancelled too and I am sick of watching a show and getting into it and then it is cancelled. At least Hostage gave a good ending but some leave you hanging and wanting more and then they pull the rug right out from under you.
