It’s that time of year again. The time when we say goodbye to some of our favorite TV shows, because some people were not into them! Sure, this means “new possibilities” for the upcoming shows, but more often than not the cancellations come out of nowhere and the show producers can’t even give their work a coherent ending. We all remember the likes of Firefly, Almost Human, and Constantine, all 3 of which were A+ TV shows, but were still cut down after the first season.
Now that we’re done with the PSA, let’s check out the most recent 10 cancelled shows, most of which I personally enjoyed.
Emily Deschanel (yes, Zoe’s sister) and David Boreanaz (yes, the dude from Buffy and Angel) had an awesome 12 season run. I’ve enjoyed most of the episodes, but gotta admit that last season was not great. Maybe it’s for the better this one gets put down. Nonetheless, the season finale wrapped most of the personal issues and mysteries, but it still wasn’t the finale that we wanted to get. Even though it’s been cancelled, it’s still a magnificent 12 seasons of very smart crime drama. Go buy a DVD set!
Dr. Ken (ABC)
Ken Jeong playing Dr. Ken was not as good as him playing Senor Chang in Community, but it had its charm. It ran for only 2 seasons (44 episodes), when ABC chopped it off. The second season finale had somewhat of a nostalgic ending, with guest stars from the Community. Sadly, it’s the ratings that killed Dr. Ken. They weren’t too low or too high, but ABC thinks they can do better in that slot next season. We’ll see.
Rush Hour (CBS)
Do you remember that awesome action movie with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker called “Rush Hour”? CBS thought it would be a good idea to reboot that franchise as a TV show. Well, it had some fun moments but it wasn’t very good overall. It got canned after just one season, and even that was a stretch, in my opinion. This may not have mattered, but who’s gonna watch a cop show at 10 p.m. on Thursdays? Well, I would, but that’s not the point.
2 Broke Girls (CBS)
If you ever want to see how changing writers can kill a show, look at “2 Broke Girls”. There’s also the issue of the failed negotiations between CBS and Warner Bros., but it was definitely going downhill past season 2. I really just watched it for Kat Dennings, and her spectacular delivery of some of the worst jokes I’ve ever heard. Just give me something with Kat, and I’ll be good to go!
