Round One: Which TV Show Should Be Saved from Being Cancelled?

Better Off Ted and TraumaAs you can tell by looking at this page, several shows have already been cancelled this season. And unfortunately, the blood-bath isn’t over yet.

By May, numerous other TV shows will be cancelled and loyal viewers will have to say farewell to characters that they’ve come to know and love. There are more than 30 shows that are very possibly on the chopping block right now.

Some are almost certainly goners (Better Off Ted, Brothers) while others are very likely to return for another season (Fringe, Castle). Crazy things can happen though. Who would have guessed that NBC would end up ordering seven more episodes of Trauma after essentially cancelling it?

This is your turn to play network executive. Which bubble show would you save if you had the power to do so?

This is a smackdown-style game which means that we’ll be doing it in three rounds. You can only vote once right now but, next week, we’ll take the top winners and you can vote again on those.

Is choosing just one of these shows too tough? Is a TV programmer’s job an easy one? After you’ve voted, leave a comment below and share your decision. You might just convince someone to follow your lead!

UPDATE: This round is now closed. Please proceed to round two…

    I think it is disgraceful that these networks stop the shows without closure – as said just give a wrap-up episode so that your viewers can know what happened. Just now we will be too scared to watch anything for fear that it gets pulled before the end of the show!!
