5 Shows That Were Cancelled Too Soon


In the wake of the news that NBC's Community will not be on the mid-season schedule, I thought about shows that were ended too soon. There has been an out pour of support with creative hashtags and Tumblrs dedicated solely to the show. But let's not forget that Parks and Recreation was once a half season show but now has come back stronger than ever. So what makes TV execs pull plug so soon with shows (meanwhile there is plenty of crap on TV)? Who knows but here is my list of television series that ended too soon.

Freaks and Geeks -  Oh how fondly I remember this show. So many stars came from this show, it's ridiculous! A little known actor named James Franco or Seth Rogen or maybe you recognize the name Jason Segel. COME ON PEOPLE!

American Dreams - I just watched a marathon of this show this weekend. I was definitely born in the wrong decade and totally would have danced on American Bandstand! They used actual footage from the sixties because Dick Clark was an Executive Producer of the show (score!). I loved the fashion and the music (and Arlen Escarpetta). Why did it have to end?

My So-Called Life - If you thought Felicity was dramatic... this show had it all. It's a little tiny time capsule of the '90s. Oh and it also gave us Jared Leto.

Pushing Daisies - A show about a guy who can bring back the dead and makes pies... it worked! Cancelled after just 2 seasons. The writers have gone to write for many great shows so don't feel bad for them.

Arrested Development - This show was perfection. It was something my whole family could agree on to watch together. It was cancelled after just 3 very short seasons. I hope the movie is actually happening!

What's your favorite show that got cancelled too soon?

  6. @iarethefoodsnob - I watched about two episodes before giving up. I don't need to get lost in the plot of another show. I like Pan Am better :)

    @Sherin- What was that about?

    @Rebecca- AD was the best!

    @downtownchicagobarbie- Oh no, Community wasn't cancelled. It's just getting a shorter season which many people are saying is hinting that it's going to get cancelled.

    @Beauty Tips- lmao he's still just as hot now!
