The cancelled TV shows 2014 list is has grown over the past few days with several seemingly popular shows not making the cut for a new season. Forbes has actually compiled a new list that features not only those shows cancelled, but those renewed and new to TV as well.
Let’s concentrate on those cancelled TV shows for which 2014 wasn’t a very good year.
ABC is saying goodbye to Trophy Wife, Mixology, Suburgatory, Super Fun Night, and The Neighbors. CBS is bidding adieu to The Crazy Ones (this is a bit of a surprise since it stars Robin Williams and marks his return to TV for the first time in decades), Intelligence, Hostages (how long did they think they could continue this hostage situation anyway?), Friends With Better Lives, and Bad Teacher. NBC is canceling Community (again), Revolution (this has simply become too complicated–all sense of reality has long been removed), Crisis, Believe, Growing Up Fisher (come on–we liked the guy from the Farmers Insurance commercial. J.K. Simmons is a really cool blind dad), and The Michael J. Fox Show (it’s really hard to understand some of what Michael J. Fox says).
Fox is axing Enlisted, Surviving Jack, Dads, and Almost Human. And finally The CW is getting rid of The Carrie Diaries (it’s about time), The Tomorrow People, Star-Crossed, and Nikita.
How many of your favorites were flushed?

A few renewals came with conditions. It seems that NBC’s Parenthood is back for what is deemed their final season. And The Mentalist on CBS reportedly just made the cut for renewal by the skin of its teeth.

Some new shows for which 2014 was a very good year include Chicago P.D. and About A Boy–both NBC productions. Their viewership soared almost immediately and maintained throughout their second and first seasons, respectively.
How do you feel about the cancelled TV shows 2014 list? Were there some that you think should have been cancelled that got the green light for yet another season instead?
