Now that summer’s coming up, we’ve found out (for the most part) which shows are canceled and renewed. There are a few I’m a little upset about, and a few I saw coming a mile away.
What I’m Bummed About:
Just like everyone else! The ratings were good, the show was good, so WHY?? Why would ABC do this to us? I can think of a handful of shows they renewed that are not nearly as good.
I’m probably in the minority here, but I found this to be an interesting show. But FOX hardly gave it a first chance, switching it to the Friday Time Slot of Death after two episodes.
WHAT. NO. BRING BACK THE GRINDER. I think everyone who watched this enjoyed this — and who doesn’t love Rob Lowe? But networks seem to have something against cute comedies these days.
Another cute comedy, gone, for no good reason.
THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA
We had two great seasons! And it was great! Why can’t we keep going?
I was kind of miffed when I heard it was canceled, and then I watched the last episode… And now I’m very frustrated with ABC. What a way to end the season! And now we’ll never know how that turns out. Thanks a lot.
Well, That Didn’t Last Long:
BLOOD & OIL
It looked so good, but it wasn’t there. I stopped watching this three episodes in, 99% sure it’d be canceled, and sure enough, the order of 13 episodes was reduced to 10.
OF KINGS AND PROPHETS
This show was first supposed to air in Fall 2015, but was pushed until March 2016. I couldn’t even get through the first episode. It was canceled after two episodes aired, and only nine aired total.
While this is still airing, it was canceled after four episodes had aired. I was surprised by this, because The CW renewed every other show, and it actually seemed pretty good!
ANGEL FROM HELL
I thought this was cute! But CBS apparently didn’t agree with me, and canceled it after five episodes.
GAME OF SILENCE
The premise was interesting, but the show was not. Canceled after six episodes.
It was interesting, weird, and ultimately just not good enough. It was canceled after three episodes, but the remaining were aired on Hulu.
Meh, It’s Okay.
The rest are shows I’m not really that sad about being canceled or ending… It was their time.
