Okay television watchers, we all know what season it is…(no not Christmas, close though)…it’s fall season cancellations! A lot of announcements have been going around about what will be continued and what won’t…and today I will be listed the top ten shows I’m glad to see leave!
Because I mean really…some shows aren’t worthy of my television cancellation mourning.
HBO just released the news that their show, Hung, will not be returning next season.
Wow. what a shocker. You mean a show named after a guy’s………………………………………………………………………………was not a big hit among TV watchers? Hmmm…I could have called that one from the start.
The Playboy Club (NBC)
This one had me nearly screaming inside. How could any show revolving around a men’s club be successful? (Okay, don’t answer that.) Do we really want to glorify that anymore than we already do? (Okay, don’t answer that one either).
Either way, with this show’s cancellation after just three episodes, I would say that vast majority of people would have to agree with my overall feeling of yuck when it comes to this show airing on primetime television.
To be honest, I’m a little surprised that this show lasted as long as it has. Revolving around a guy who becomes part of the government after a spy database is embedded into his brain. And although I’m certain that there are many people out there wiping away the tears as they wave so long to one of their favorite shows, I’m certainly not going to be one of them.
Show finale airs on 1/27/2012.
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (ABC)
Okay, I was a little shocked at this one. One of my guilty tv pleasures…are makeover shows. And I’m amazed to see this one go…and now who will I get to makeover my home?
But, in reality, how often can you remake the wheel? We’re all a little tired of that theme anyways, aren’t we?
Onto the next, I say!
Pan Am (ABC)
Okay, somewhere along the way, when this show first aired…I got the impression that this was a sad…sad…sad attempt for the airline industry to sort of…perk up their image, so to speak? I mean, with the holiday season coming around and ongoing frustration with passengers at having to face airport security…we’re not exactly patient passengers when we have to go to the airport.
So, this may be my own little conspiracy theory, but given the fact that this show also got the boot, I”m guessing that this attempt didn’t rest well with tv watchers.
But, side note folks, apparently ABC insists that it isn’t cancelling the show. Apparently there are five more episodes to air…but I have my doubts on this being a recurring show.
Prime Suspect (NBC)
I’m sorry to admit, but I literally had to google this tv show when I read that this one was cancelled too. Who can forget the never ending commercials advertising a rough and tumble cop who gets beat up and enjoys dinner with the ladies all at the same time?
Yup, I forgot too. And now, we won’t have to struggle to remember that any show any longer.
Alright TV watchers…that’s my list! What show are you glad to see take a dive?
