Cancelled Shows 2012: Several Fan Favorites Won’t Return Next Season
[ Life]

Cancelled Shows 2012: The fallout has been quite stressful and a little traumatic for fans of those shows that won’t be returning for another run next season. It’s always hard to say goodbye to the characters you’ve grown to love, even if the universe in which they dwell has only been in existence for a few short months. “Terra Nova” fans, for example, probably won’t have as hard a time dealing with the anguish that comes with a cancellation as, say, those who have been following “House” and “One Tree Hill” since the beginning.

Judging from the Twitter responses surrounding the demise of “House”, fans aren’t quite ready to say goodbye. In fact, some of them are downright angry about the news. David Shore, the show’s creator, was actually looking to wrap things up last year, though the decision was made to stretch out the storyline for one more season. Because the decision to cancel the show came early, Shore plans to give the characters the proper send-off they deserve.

// I’m just now finding out that #House has been cancelled. Truly sad news… but I think it’s time to let it end. Great show.(image) 15 hours ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

I still can’t believe #House was cancelled, that show could have easily made it for 8 more years(image) 3 days ago via UberSocial for BlackBerry ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Fan favorite “Alcatraz”, the brainchild of uber producer/director J.J. Abrams, failed to hang onto the numbers generated during its debut last fall. However, Abrams devotees shouldn’t collectively kick FOX in the keister just yet; the network has apparently renewed “Fringe” for one more season. The animated version of “Napoleon Dynamite”, which also had a home at FOX, has been cancelled, as well.

A few other long-running shows are also parting ways with their networks. NBC’s “Chuck”, ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, and CBS’s “CSI: Miami” have also been kicked to the curb. “Desperate Housewives” won’t be back next season, either, though this was announced sometime last year, which should, in theory, have allowed fans to properly prepare for the show’s upcoming departure.

However, despite all of these cancellations, there are numerous reasons to keep watching the small screen. “Big Bang Theory”, “30 Rock”, “Family Guy”, “Glee”, “New Girl”, “Modern Family”, and, my personal favorite, “Nikita” have all been invited back for another season of televised entertainment. What’s amazing to me is that “America’s Funniest Home Videos” keeps chugging right along after being on-air for what seems like ages.

Additionally, several new shows have been picked up to essentially fill the void left by the programs that won’t be returning this fall. “The Carrie Diaries”, CW’s prequel to the HBO series “Sex in the City”, should be arriving next season, as well as the reboot of “Beauty and the Beast”. FOX, meanwhile, is hoping to ensnare grieving “House” fans with the medical drama “The Mob Doctor”, which stars Jordana Spiro. The trailer for the upcoming program resides above.

Cancelled Shows 2012: Several Fan Favorites Won’t Return Next Season
Top Rated White Papers and Resources
  • Edwin

    I finder was a great show and did not even get a chance, that so sucks.

    • Zach

      I agree! Loved that show, should avhe given it another season to get an audience like they did w./ BONES; and because it’s gone.. I will no longer be watching ANY shows on FOX… PERIOD! I’m done w/ network TV @ this point, only on-demand, cable networks, or netflix streaming for me!

      • Peg

        I so agree–The Finder was definitely one of Fox’s best shows, they should have given it a chance. Nothing else they put on is going to be much better!

        • William

          I agree, Finder was one of the outstanding
          shows of the season. Makes a person wonder what
          kind of executives run the major networks.

          • Stephanie

            Finder was so much fun… total crap that they do not give these shows more of a chance… One of the main things that hurt Finder was the fact that Bones was re-runs for to much of the time so there was no solid lead show!

          • KarinJoy

            I will really miss the Finder. It was a very entertaining show with good acting! I also loved the River and Terra Nova. Happens every year, a few of my favorites disappear.

          • mike s

            finder was a great show…had a good following considering no solid lead in. with as many people that watched it – like 4million….the CW should pick it up and put it on a good night.

            the firm – really liked it very smart show. both of these needed at least one more year.

            unforgettable…needed one more year.

            most bummed about the finder of these three…as it was great wholesome show. has to really pay attn to the firm as it was continuous like 24 the who way thru.

          • http://mmissing Simjo

            i am so mad that missing got canceled
            it was mine and my familys favorite show becca would do anything to get her son id do anything to get missing back on tv

      • terrier16

        Agree totally. Soon network TV will be all reality because it’s CHEAP to produce but stinks. Also now a 60 min show is actually 35 minutes the rest are ads–I DVR what little I watch. I think Netflix stream is great NO ads and cheap $7.99.

        • KassyVa

          I can’t believe that a lot of the shows I love got cancelled. The Secret Circle, Ringer, Finder, Missing and others. It never fails I love a show and it is cancelled. How about getting rid of the Bachelor and Bachelorette do I really have to sit through watching men and women being fake. People may love the show but I don’t. Others on the renewed list should go.

        • michelle

          i can’t believe they are cancelling missing. that is the best new show this year. it was the one show that i think everyone i work with watched. what is wrong with this network. they have lost their minds.

    • http://www.youravon.com/tabithawillette tabitha

      I totaly agree i love that show

    • JJ

      I agree! The Finder was great! They should have given it one more season. I knew when they moved it to Friday, it was dead though. It was such a qwirky show that should have been given another year!!

    • Radical

      The Finder was one of my favorite new shows. I can’t believe it’s not being renewed.

    • Roogie

      Try reading some books people, maybe even read the constitution, keep an eye on the police state growing around you. Morons.

      • ajm

        TROLL… If you don’t like this, go away. Read the Constitution? Ever heard of the 1st Amendment? You know, free speech? YOU go read the constitution! Talk about a moron!

    • Joni

      I really enjoyed Finders. It was different and not so dark as alot of shows are. It had comedy but dealt with some interesting cases. I also enjoyed Unforgettable and am disappointed that it was cancelled.

    • Peter of Guilford

      The Finder, Unforgettable, The River, House, Terra Nova, Alcatraz, A Gifted Man, Harrys Law, The Firm. Great shows gone! I hope they at least filmed a show that would tie up all the loose ends ahead of time especially for a show such as Alcatraz (WTF where did they go for all those years??)’Why should we invest our time if the networks have no patients to follow thru with their unwritten promise to continue entertaining us. Networks are not meeting my expectations and I will have a difficult time investing myself next season only to be disappointed again. HBO, Showtime, Cinemax seem to be the way to go if you want longevity and completion!

    • mk

      I couldn’t agree more. It was like Psych and House morphed! I’m really, really bummed.

    • Wendy

      I agree, loved that show!

    • sandy skjordal

      I agree the finder was an awesome show..

  • http://Yahoo JLR

    I hate that HARRY’S LAW is cancelled. I hope another network will pick it up. It’s one of my favorites!!!

    • dianne

      Harry’s Law is the best

      • Sue Anne Cummings

        I love Harry’s Law. Alot worse shows are staying.

        • Candis

          I love Harry’s Law. I was a joy to watch. Why take a good show off and leave shows that just have to substance.

      • Jim

        Harry’s Law was one of the best legal series on television! I hope it gets picked up on the USA network. NBC never promoted the show properly to build up viewers.

        • Doreen

          I couldn’t agree more. Shows like Harry Law deserve at least more than one season. It was more reality than reality is nowadays!!

          • Cindy

            I love Harry’s Law! This show is in a class of it’s own. Kathy Bates is a great actress. I am so sad to see this show go. I guess if you are not a reality show, or a show that has lots of sexual innuendo, then you are not good enough to keep (I also loved Friday Night Lights, and that got cancelled last year)

          • Gee

            Harry’s law was one of my favorite but I saw this coming. It was not one season but two. However this season killed the show the first season was amazing then this season the show turned into another round the mill legal drama witha totally diffrent cast. Watch the first season if you really liked this show. I promise the first season was the best.

          • JoAnn

            I was mortified to find Harrys Law was cancelled
            It was one of my favorites. Never missed an episode

        • Sherille

          Harry’s Law was the best new show! Kathy Bates is exceptional, not to mention the rest of the cast! Sometimes it makes you wonder if the “executives” that make the renewals and cancellations really know what they are doing!!! I love Blue Bloods, Person of Interest, Harry’s Law, it is such a shame to lose them all.

    • sonny

      Harry’s Law was one of the better shows this year’why did they drop it? They keep the stupid shows and drop the good ones.

      • BrxMan

        Harry’s law has been GREAT since they first appeared in shoe store and into full fledged law firm..with great characters and character..this is what happens when empty suits in tower make empty decisions..they should be held in contempt of court and sentenced by jury of associates in Harry’s Court..I just cannot believe this..it is unconscionable..Decisions made by shooting darts at dart board… and they keep some of the other worthless reality shows WHY ???

        • blanca

          Harry’s Law: too smart a show! Dumb Bachelors and Bachelorettes should go, this is the dumbing down of America.

          • http://yahoo deanna russell

            i agree with you blanca, i look for gifted actors on a show telling a story, like reading a book. not these ordinary people making fools out of themselves on poorly scripted shows. what is the education level of americans these days?

          • ajm

            Just like Boston Legal before it. I am starting to think NBC is trying to lose viewers. Whoever is creating the shows of this caliber needs to find a network that appreciates their work, and the fans will come along. Harry’s Law was the *most watched* scripted show on TV, and NBC dumped it. Real smart move.

            I guess we’ll all have to dumb ourselves down and start watching Bachelor[ette], Idol, Voice, Dancing With The Stars, and other mindless garbage.

      • jan mauzy

        Harry’s Law is one of the best shows on TV. It deals with the current happenings and the family feeling is good. It has no violence like other shows you keep year after year! I’m very disappointed!!! Jan Mauzy

        • Tracy

          I completely agree sick to death of these shows!!!

        • linda yanick

          I am so sorry about the cancellation of Harry’s Law. It is such an interesting and enjoyable show. Kathy Bates is such a delight to watch. Everyone on the show did a great job,I really looked forward to watching it every week. I can’t believe they would cancell just a great show.Whoever did this I wish they would reconsider!!!

      • cathy

        never watched it, never seen an advertised either

      • wilda

        I loved Harry Law

    • pat


    • Paul V

      Amen. Right up there with The Good Wife.

    • tv hawk

      I like Harrys Law!! I really just started watching it since they moved it to Sundays. Such an interesting show!!

    • tera gram

      Harrys Law would have survived many seasons as a Boston Legal clone….what is the matter NBC cant you see a hit when you make one!

      • shadow

        Suggest everyone contact the sponsors of Harry’s Law and say you won’t buy their product/service if show is cancelled.Money talks!

      • Jim


    • sneebster@yahoo.com

      Why Harry’s Law to be cancelled, one the season’s best shows last year.

      • Sheryl

        I agree!! I love Harry’s Law and I do not understand why it is being canceled.

        • M Coleman

          I love Harry’s law such a shame to be canceled. I know
          many people who feel the same way. Please find someone
          that will continue this great show. NBC you don’t know good shows thats why your last

    • Elaine

      Harry’s Law, The Finder, and Unforgettable were my favorites. I cannot stand reality shows….so guess these affiliates will lose my business, don’t think they care, though

      • Roseann Moser


    • Yvette

      I was just starting to like Harry’s law again. After they changed all the people in the storyline it took a minute to get me back….but i did come back..maybe to late.

    • Gabby

      I’m with you. I just love the whole cast. I’m very sad.

    • Annette

      I love Harry’s Law. The writing wasn’t as good last season but it still beats almost everything else out there. Especially reality shows – HATE THEM.

    • jazz

      I loved Harry’s Law… it was a great show. Kathy Bates was the best. Alof of the cancelled shows, the networks are making a HUGE mistake. And keeping the reality shows is nuts, along with the stupid “adult” cartoon shows.

  • Crimson

    Truly sucks that Alcatraz won’t be back. Great concept. Now I’ll never know what happened. Thanks Fox!

    • Lynn

      Yeah. I really liked Alcatraz. I was looking forward to seeing if Rebecca Madsen, the main detective, survived being shot by her grandfather. This sucks. I’m just glad that Sons of Anarchy did not get cut.

      • http://N/A Cody

        The problem with TV is that it has become pure money as long as a show gets some form of ratings they are happy. T.v shows like sons of anarchy,falling skies,and the walking dead will survive because they cut through the ratings crap and present an actual story its like watching your favorite book play out in front of your eyes. anyone wondering sons of anarchy will at least be around til their 6 season FX has renewed it til then.

  • LuAnne Schaper

    I can noit believe that CSI Miami,Missing and Harry’s Law are being cancelled.. Three of the best shows on T.V. and people watch them.. Are the excutives crazy.. If you want to cancel a show,then cancel Whitney and Don’t trust the B in Apt 23.. Can not stand either of them…
    Please do not cancel my favorite shows..

    • Loviee

      How can there really be a 2nd season for Missing? Once she finds her son the show will be useless. And if she never finds her son, the show will probably lose viewers… It’s an awesome show and one of my favorites, but I always wondered that about the show. Just like that show with Taye Diggs called Day Break. Shows like that really can’t go on for season after season without getting repetitive.

      • Susan

        I think you might be forgeting about the creative writing. As with 24, no one understood where it would go but the creativity was enough to get fans watching. As well as How I met your Mother, which is sort of along those lines. I mean one season simply isn’t enough. The character on Missing could have had so many options. Being CIA and getting her son back may have been the begining. Maybe a “missing” link to her past. Just wish they didn’t cut so quickly. Too much reality tv!!

        • Leigh

          Agreed!! Might as well not get vested into anymore TV shows. They will get canceled…

    • Sally Murphy

      NO WAY not Harry’s Law…. Really?????? That is a GR88888T show and will be truly missed. Darn the Luck!!!!!

      • tv hawk

        Exactly!! What do these execs want from a show??!! Renew Harrys Law!!!

        • http://adobeglobaldigitaladvertisingq12012update tom ayers

          will definitely miss harry’s law

        • PB

          Obviosly they don’t like shows that you have to have an IQ to watch!!! They rather you brain burns out on some of the CRAP that they r keeping on. Will miss Harry’s Law

          • http://yahoo deanna russell


    • Tv Fan

      I agree – cancel the shows that are truly annoying! A lot of the reality shows like Bachelor and Bachelorette should also be done with – quite annoying that people can be so desperate! Keep the good shows with good plots – not dumb shows!

      • Grandma4

        U R right. those reality shows can go. I love to watch Chuck, but it was getting stupid. I can’t believe The Batchelor and Batchelorette, The Cleveland Show, Cougar Town and some of those other shows are staying.

        • Matthew

          Cougar Town is an amazing show.

      • Ice

        I agree cancel all the reality shows. What do people get out watching rich people make idiots out of there selves. Put the cancelled shows back on and cancell the reality shows

    • memegee

      I gree, Harry’s Law is the best! I also hate to see CSI Miami gone too. I hate the Bachelor and the Bachelorette that’s just people trying to on TV!!…… They could easily get rid of all the reality shows!!! Who cares about their lives,heck, we all got lives to live that’s just as important as theirs!! LOL

    • sneebster@yahoo.com

      Agreed. Keep quality shows on tv like Harry’s Law. Get rid of trash tv like wife swap and 2 broke girls

  • http://all Pam

    I agree with Kobus Harmse. All of the reality shows are awful. I had to watch one survivor show. All those are so dumb. They do not look real and are just plain unreal. Who cares which brides dress or bridesmaid dress they pick. Who cares who gets picked out all the choices to be the next chef, designer, or singer. I do not find those shows in the least entertaining. I am really getting tired of watching reruns just because there is nothing worth watching on tv anymore!!!!

  • Jennifer

    Your article says Touch is cancelled, yet is on your renewed list.

    • Kathy

      I read it and checked on fox.com touch is coming back, but on friday at 8

      • peter

        Friday night is like a death row for shows. Touch is such a unique show with unbelievable writing. We will all be disappointed when it leaves us after next season.

  • Loviee

    I think American Idol and America’s next top model should go away. They are getting old and repetitive. I had a feeling ABC’s “Missing” would only air one season being that it’s more like a continuous movie rather than a show. It’s still a great one though!

  • Richard

    I can,t belive they cancelled The Finder and left on American Dad and that other crap cartoon show.Friday night was Fox night for me,not anymore! I’m giveing up on T.V. Shows too many ads on now anyway and anything you do start to wacth and is good they will cancel it anyway.Thank the geeks for DVD,s…end of line…………………

  • Chris

    Unforgettable was one of the highest rated shows on tv this year. What the heck people!!! I think someone got their wires crossed. Not good.

    • Toni

      I so agree…I LOVE Unforgettable. It is such a great show. Why do we need the cartoons and the unreality “REALITY” shows? Stupid.

      • LOUISE

        They appeal to juvenile minds which seem to be a good part of hollywood these days. Oh yeah, cartoons and reality shows are cheap to make.

        • Norma

          Harry’s Law is really a good show….NBC no wonder you
          can’t raise your ratings……keep the boring and get rid of the interesting…does that make since???Not good…

    • Brandy

      I LOVE Unforgetable! When Private Practice moved, it caused a conflict, but that’s why there’s dvr’s, right?

  • http://YAHOO.COM clayton hickey

    somebody out there make some tv westerns their no more violent than anyother drama shows thats on now. oh but thats what everybody wants to see these days that or sex,some young girl being raped or a child being molested.come on find some of the old writers from Gunsmoke,Bonanza,Big Valley,Maverick,Rawhide, the list goes on you know the good stuff not this crap thats on now.the sit-coms are not even funny anymore.it’s crap…..

    • TBTBM

      Here’s why the shows are dumber and dumber… WE WATCH THEM. Shows have to compete with each other and pressure the networks to air more and more filth. There was a time on TV when making fun of someone was not as common as seeing the person show themselves as funny to the audience. Now there are more and more one-liners used to put someone down. There was a time when sex was assumed and left to the imagination, now it’s soft porn spread all over the screen. Used to be a time when the violence was assumed and now there’s blood splattered all over the screen. There’s a saying that refers to drugs and alcohol… “If you’re dumb enough to use it, I’m dumb enough to sell it.”

  • Patricia Thompson

    I can’t believe they are cancelling Alcatraz. At least they can do is bring it back for a 2 hr finale. Now we will never know if Rebecca lived.

    • Gail Moreau

      I agree with you Patricia…they should have at least some type of finale to see if Rebecca lives and how the warden and how the prisioners & the guards came back from 1963. I found it a very interesting show.

    • mark

      I totally agree. I enjoyed Alcatraz. Bring us a 2hr finally!

  • JvilleSuz

    Seriously… some of the best shows on the tube are being cancelled??? Unforgettable – excellent show, Prime Suspect – not as good as unforgettable but really good as is Alcatraz… and my favorite of all time The Finder! Really Fox – why not try them in a better time slot – go a little mainstream and that show would be #1. Quirky, funny… make the reality shows go away.

  • cindy

    I am upset that GCB was cancelled! It was hilarious! My family loved Missing and were pretty pissed about that too. They finally gave us 3 decent shows and only 1 made it to season 2 (Revenge). All the crap is still on (Survivor, Idol etc) Come on ABC wake up!

    • Alicia

      I love GCB too! I was beginning to think no one else liked it since they weren’t commenting. It is soo funny :(

      • amanda

        I love GCB; Kristin is so cute and a terrific actress! I hats that they are canceling. Tons of my friends love it to.

        • dave

          I think GCB was the funniest show on tv. It shows how ABC will cave when some stuck-up bible tooting NUT writes in and threatens to boycot sponsers. ABC grow a pair. Dave

    • tina

      i love GCB. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!

    • Sheri

      I love GCB! I can’t believe they are cancelling it. They need to bring it back.

      I agree. I loved GCB even my husband would watch it with me and laugh. Now where will I get my laughs on sunday.

      • jazz

        I loved GCB too, the characters were hilarious. These networks have gone CRAZY…cancelling the great shows and leaving on the stupid ones. They need to pull their heads out of their asses.

    CSI Miami Is Still Very Popular Show Canceling It is Stupid!!!
    I Watch it Every Week!!!

    • Kellie

      I agree, CSI: Miami was the second most watched of the CSI trilogy. They kept New York although it has lower ratings because it was less expensive to produce. They should have given Miami at least one more season to give the characters a proper good-bye.

  • John

    I agree with Loviee, Missing is a great show, but what happens when Michael is safely secured? I wonder if they’re filming a happy ending to this story.

  • http://WebProNews Carol

    It makes me sick HARRY’S LAW is being cancelled. This show has something to say and has a FANTASTIC CAST. To cancel a show just because the advertisers say the audience is older makes me sick!!! When a show is such good quality it seems to get the ax. My son is 25 and loves this show. Wake up advertisers, older people buy your products too.

    • CJ

      I fully agree. KEEP HARRY’S LAW! I am 34 and LOVE the show and have gotten my husband as well as my mom and husband’s mom watching it. We all buy products just the same as well. Get rid of the dumb, ‘fluff’ shows like all the ‘reality’ shows–really–have you ever seen anyone’s life like that? Want to get away from real life? Watch a good movie but don’t add more of these shows that “we” supposedly enjoy. Not even my younger friends in the 18-24 year old demographic watch all those reality shows!

    • Sonjiav

      They have done the same thing with many shows over the years. For instance, Dr. Quinn in the 90’s. Canceled because it wasn’t drawing the right group of people. Fans fought for years to get that back and it didn’t work. The top people think they know everything except they are not us. We know what we want and it isn’t all these reality shows, especially the Bachlor type trash. Give me a break and now CW canceled The Secret Circle. They built it up til you were on the edge of your seat waiting for next week and then – boom – it’s gone. Insane?????

  • Eric

    First off Im glad to see some of the shows go,but how in the world can Family Guy,Simpsons and The Office survive.And what i think is the best new show in a long time Touch gets axed,I agree American Idol needs to go same crap every year.Randy Jackson cannot think of anything else to say but Yo, He thinks he’s Simon and has to be the ass hole and Steven tyler is just a sleezy pervert.Networks need to re-think their decisions.

  • Robin

    Am I the only one that LOOOOVED GCB??! It was hilarious, witty, and down right funny. So sad! RIP, GCB! You will be missed!

  • Jim

    Sure gonna miss GCB…Loved the show. At least you kept some of the good ones….and many crappy ones….sheesh!

    • Nikki

      Agree. I actually really enjoyed Pan Am too, the least they could have done was move it maybe to ABC Family or they should have put it on there to begin with! I will miss them for sure. I’m surprised they kept “Don’t Trust The B” because I think that show looks stupid, but who knows it might surprise me and be hilarious.

  • Marilyn

    I am shocked that House is ending, although i figured it after they changed everything and HL said “He was tired of doing it”….But they leave those crappy reality type shows on, but always take off the good ones…or the really stupid shows that have no plot or nothing. The only shows i watched on normal channels was House,Vampire Diaries and Glee…nad the last show of House 21st is going to suck,..i think….putting House back in prision and Wilson going to die….geez…that is not a good way to end it..

  • Rick

    CSI: Miami was cancelled because it moved to Sunday nights where nothing is ever shown “on-time” on CBS. CBS needs to get there **** straight and realize that football never ends until 7:30. Stop scheduling shows beginning at 7:00. Start Sunday night programming at 8:00. Had they done this before, CSI: Miami may have survived.

    • Mike

      I agree with this 100%. A good show – just as good as the other CSI’s, but a horrible time slot.
      I DVR’d the show, but never got to watch it since the programs before it over – ran their time (i.e. football).
      Sad. No more “H-isms”!

  • Barbara

    I can’t believe the Terra Nova, Pan Am, Alcatraz, Ringer, The Secret Circle, GCB, Extreme Makeover Harry’s Law, The Finder, and Awake, and House are going to end. That sucks!

    • Glo

      Terra Nova was great….I DVR’d the whole season cause I was taking trips & too busy to watch. But when I did, I couldn’t wait to watch the next episode. This is one show that will be realized later on that it should have continued. Besides with Spielberg having part, how could it not be great

      • Gee

        Ringer was the best, I was so looking forward to next season. I really do not invest too much in anything NBC but I thought CW was more loyal. Ringer was the best new show. The one show that leaves you wanting more every single week, never a dull episode. I can’t believe it. I was a fan of Vampire diaries but it got stupid, they should have cancelled that instead and left Ringer.

  • Ryan

    Law and Order SVU should have been at the top of the axee list! The acting is some of the worst on television! This show is absolutely horrible.

  • http://cwtv.com Paloma

    i disagree for cancelling Ringer and the Secret Cirlce those shows were sp suspesful and they left it hanging on a good episode i really hope another network will pick it up oh please do i really loved those shows especially Ringer its so unfair they leave those ridiclous reality shows and that new one that is clearly boring (La Complex) cancels that one and bring back RINGER and THE SECRET CIRLCE!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Tracy G

      I agree completely seriously I am fed up to my eyeballs with reality shows and The Secret Circle was one of my favorites

    • Monique

      I can’t believe they left Ringer hanging like that!! I am soooo tired of ANTM, American Idol, American Dad (really, wtf) and omg those reality shows suck!! Who cares who’s looking for love or whatever. Bring back some quality TV. And seriously 90210, they should’ve left it in the 90’s and i’m 26. CSI Miami, Ringer, Vampire Diaries, House and Secret Cirle were the only reasons I watched tv. Guess I’m back to watching movies

    • Janet

      I agree that Ringer is such a great show. Does that mean we will be left up in the air with the ending? I would also love to see it get picked up by another network. Also, love the suspense of Circle of Friends as well.
      As Paloma said sbove, there are some really ridiculis shows on.
      Like some of the Housewives reality shows. And some of the stars putting out their dirty laundry for us to see. Must be getting desperate to be on television. What has happened to television? Put on som good old fashion entertainment.

  • Carolyn

    TV sucks! There are very few QUALITY shows. So-called reality shows should be banned.

  • Rhonda

    I cannot believe “stupid, mindless, cannot act” shows like 2 Broke Girls is renewed but good “use your brain” shows like Alkatraz are cancelled!? Really!?!?!?

  • Lisa

    Wow. No one mentioned A Gifted Man! I love Dr Holt!! It was like his conscience got to him, aka dead wife. And unforgettable?? But I’m glad Touch is on Friday at 8. Having it across from POI meant I never saw it.The finder is great too! Axe the stupid reality shows. Or is this our sign that intelligent life is fading quickly? Want a reality show, just turn on the local news!

  • Star

    I can’t believe I won’t get to see Horatio anymore~~I am such a huge fan of CSI Miami!! Sadly disappointed….

    • http://yahoo Betty Elder


      • dd

        The Gifted Man was one of the very best new shows this year. Classy plots, good writing, great actors. So they take that off and leave on stupid shows. I am so disappointed.

  • Diane

    I can’t believe that A Gifted Man has been cancelled. This was a great show with a wonderful cast. While I love many of the CBS shows, they goofed on this one.

  • Curtis Wilson

    Very upset over CSI Miami, The Finder and Harry’s Law. 3 of the best dramas on television. But they are keeping Glee – didn’t they graduate from high school this season. It should be over. Just like Fame. Once you graduate from the Glee squard – it’s pretty much over – right. Also, they have 2 Gordon Ramseys shows on. That’s not fair. I don’t know. I’m a little upset at Hollywood right now.

  • WTF

    WTH House should NOT be cancelled EVER!! i Dont care if Hugh Laurie is 98 yrs old i would STILL watch house. They pushed it expecially for me by cancelling CSI: MIAMI now Horacio’s signature shades will kick their a$$e$. Now i hate TV THANKS ALOT. YOU GUYS SUCK

  • Rita

    I will miss CSI Miami. I have love Horatio for years. I hope someone reconsiders this decision. I am heartbroken.

  • Jeff

    Cancelling Finder really sucks as well as cancelling Alcatraz. These were great shows. At least Fringe is still on. I guess that will be the only regular TV show i will be watching on Friday nights.

  • Karen

    I’m gonna miss Harry’s Law. I really liked watching this show, there were some surprises. My favorite show was when they were in competion with another law firm at an annual dinner. Enjoyed that immensely. Oh, well.

  • Lavonne Tippen

    What is going on? Cancelling House, CSI Miami, The Finder, and Harry’s Law is the wrong thing to do. You should have cancelled Revenge, Once Upon a Time, Suburgatory, and others instead. You should let the people vote on the cancelations. We know what we like, not you.

  • David


  • Cate

    I’ve got an idea….read a book!

  • brent guillot

    When GCB was cancelled the entire gay community GASPED!!!

  • littlewing

    I am getting sick and tired of the reality shows, Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!!! Clearly anything that is compelling, thoughtful and creative gets the ax. Come on, stop the epidemic of the ‘Dumbing Down’ of viewers. God, I’m am sick of it… This is why I own a Roku I don’t have to deal with the volume adjusted commercials, that blare out to convince us to purchase more crap. Get your heads on straight guys and stop serving us mindless and meaningless programs. At the rate you are going, television will be something of the past, I see it coming.

  • Tim Wallace

    They are just TV shows for god’s sake. Stressful for fans? Gimme a break

  • Ray Martin

    Harry’s Law cancelled. Here is another STUPID mistake made by NBC management. Well now I have no reason to watch NBC at all.

    • Shaina Weathersby

      The only 2 shows I watch on there is up all night & whitney what happened to NBC theyre horrible.

  • Shaina Weathersby

    WOW…Really going to cancel Missing, Alcatraz, and Prime Suspect well not happy about that. What happened to Detroit Blue I think it was called that good. Im with everyone else tired of these reality shows theyre so stupid. All those bachelor shows nobody ever stays together so whats the point. I love my on demand fast forward thru commecials & shift through all the retarded shows out there. Who does these ratings anyway they suck.

  • Len

    I didn’t see American Idol on any list. What’s their status?

  • Clair

    Absolutely CRAZY! GCB is one of the out-loud funniest shows on tv, Unforgetable and Missing are two really good dramas and my favorite CSI Miami, cancelled? Hey networks good luck with advertising and getting people to watch tv, the reality shows are too much and not everybody wants to see a reality show every night.

  • Craig

    I’m still mourning the cancellation of “Charlies Angels”. And now “Unforgetable”? That’s just unforgiveable!

  • Saydie

    Why watch the Bachelorette this season when you can read all about it on the internet. Jef and Sean are the final two. It has already been announced. Arie was in the final three until it was found out he had been previously dating one of the staff with the show. It’s nothing but a joke. It’s all over the internet. Why watch it.

  • Lili (W. T.)

    I will never understand why shows which are well written, directed and have incredible cast members are thrown by the wayside and yet garbage and bulls**t (including comedies needing canned laughter to prompt unreal responses)continue to remain! I tip my hat to Hugh Laurie (“You Go Guy!” :-) with your music, acting and directing–you’re a character and this world NEEDS characters!) and the entire cast of “House”. They ARE (Not WERE!) Superb! I also loved “Harry’s Law” and “A Gifted Man” I know in all cases, this will not be the last time we will see and hear about the actors involved. LOVE and GOOD WISHES to them ALL!



  • http://webpronews Donna

    I so agree with the disappointment over great shows like Harry’s Law that actually make a point while trash like Whitney and others that spend most of the show in bed or making raw comments prevail. I’d just as soon have less so called “reality” as well. They are so fake and have no point to them! Bring back good action and drama any time!
