14 shows I wish wouldn't have been cancelled!

There's a lot of television shows out there and some of them make it and some of them don't. Unfortunately, all the shows me and my mom seem to like get cancelled. So, here's a list of 14 shows I wish wouldn't have been cancelled.

1. Without A Trace (CBS)

Number of seasons: 7

Show description: The series follows the cases of a Missing Persons Unit (MPU) of the FBI in New York City.

I really loved this show A LOT! I liked all the characters and the premise of the show, the whole thing was awesome. Unfortunately, I think what did this show in was that it kept flipping nights that it was on. First, it was Thursday then Sunday then Tuesday and back Thursday. When a show flips time slots that much through out it's 7 seasons it's not surprising how viewers could lose interest. Still,I'm sad it got cancelled and wish it would have had at least another season or at least some closure to some of the story lines season 7 ended with.

2. CSI: NY (CBS)

Number of seasons: 9

Show description: The show follows the investigations of a team of NYPD forensic scientists and police officers identified as "Crime Scene Investigators"

Out of the two spin offs of the CSI seris, CSI NY was one of my favorites. I loved the characters (especially, detective Flack or as I like to call him "detective pretty eyes" :P) I loved how two of the characters got married and a had a baby. I just really enjoyed that show and wish it wouldn't have gotten cancelled without some closure to the stories at the end of season 9. It was good show though and it had a good run.

3. Women's Murder Club (ABC)

Number of seasons: 1

Show description: The series is set in San Francisco, California, and is based on the series of novels by the same name written by James Patterson.

When this show first aired, I had never read any of James Patterson's Women's Murder Club books. So, I just thought it was cool that a tv show was being based off a book and I really liked it. Unfortunately, this show was on in the same year that writers strike took place in Hollywood. So, that's a big reason why it got cancelled. Because, by the time the strike was over, people had either forgotten about or lost interest in the show. Now, having read the books, I wish there could have been more then one season. It would have been interesting to see how that would have panned out.

4. Veronica Mars (originally aired on UPN but then went to the CW)

Number of seasons: 3

Show description: Veronica Mars is a student who progresses from high school to college while moonlighting as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father

I really loved this show and was sad when it got cancelled. It had many elements to it, serious, funny and dramatic. I loved almost all the characters (especially, Logan Echolls. hard not to like that guy lol) Altogether it was really good show and I wish it would have gotten a 4th season. Apparently, a lot of people felt the same way because Veronica Mars was just recently turned into a movie. I haven't seen it yet, but hopefully it brings some closure to some of the story lines at the end of season 3 that we never really got.

5. Betrayal (ABC)

Number of seasons: 1

Show description: The series stars Hannah Ware as Sara Hanley, a photographer, who begins an affair with Jack McAllister (played by Stuart Townsend), a lawyer for a powerful family.

Though I was not interested in the show by it's previews, once I started watching it I was hooked. I don't condone infidelity, but this show was way more then about that. It was very dramatic and had a lot of twists and turns to it, it was very good show. So, I was sad it got cancelled and I'm really ticked how it's first and only season ended. It ended with Sara waiting at restaurant with a glass of wine for a man and you don't know if it's Jack ( the guy she had the affair with) or Drew (her husband). Now, I'll never know.

6. The Client List (Lifetime)

Number of seasons: 2

Show description: is an American television drama series based on the 2010 television film of the same name, which aired on the Lifetime network.

This show starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, who was also in the movie. I never saw the tv movie because I thought it sounded it creepy, but I saw the show and I changed my mind. Though the concept of her working at day spa that gave "extras" during a massage is a little hard to wrap my brain around. But, it was more then just that. It was about her trying balance her life as a mother and keep this secret about what she really does ( since it's illegal). All in all it was really good show and I'm disappointed there was never a season 3.

7. The O.C. (Fox).

Number of seasons: 4

Show description: portrays the fictional lives of a group of teenagers and their families residing in the affluent seaside community of Newport Beach, in Orange County, California.

I absolutely love this show! Though I never watched it when it was on (I saw the reruns on Soap Net). Seeing those reruns, I realized what I good show it actual was. I liked most of the characters (especially, Seth Cohen he was awesome! So, much better then Ryan Atwood :P) It was good show with funny moments and dramatic moments, it's a shame it only lasted 4 seasons. It would have been interesting to see how many more seasons it could have lasted, but at least this cancelled show had a series finale. Which gave viewers much needed closure and probably joy when we realize Seth and Summer finally get married. So, it was good show. That had a happy ending.

8. What Not To Wear (TLC)

Number of seasons: 10

Show description:was an American makeover reality television series based on the British show of the same name.

I'm not much for reality T.V. I only watch the shows that are about something that I like or pique my curiosity and this show did that. Every episode you'd see Stacey London and Clinton Kelly, give some poor unsuspecting woman a makeover from had to toe and the transformations were usually very good. Because, these people are nominated by friends and family to be on the show, not all of them were receptive to the idea and some fought them the entire way. The ones that were receptive were very happy with the results and gained whole new confidence they didn't have before. This show wasn't just about making people over on the outside, it was helping them transform themselves from the inside out and letting the clothes reflect that. So, it sucks that it got cancelled. Especially, since TLC kept Honey Boo Boo but cancelled What Not To Wear (I will never understand that). Though I wish it could have had many more seasons and helped many more women see themselves in a better light. They did have a good run and helped many woman, so their 10 seasons were spent well.

9. Ghost Whisperer (CBS)

Number of Seasons: 5

Show Description:The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts

I realize not a lot of people believe in ghosts and even less people believe people can communicate with them. However, this show brought people to a place that's not easy for most to comprehend. Every week Melinda would have a new ghost to help cross over to the other side and in doing so she had to give messages to the living from the dead ( which wasn't easy to get people to believe), but it was a really good show and was very emotional and heart felt. Maybe it even brought closure to people watching who just recently lost someone that there loved one was on the other side and watching over them. It was a great show and i'm disappointed it couldn't have had at least a couple more seasons, because it was a show worth watching. Luckily for J Love though, she's on Criminal Minds now which has been on for 10 seasons, so she doesn't need to worry about being out of job anytime soon.

10. Medium (Originally a mid-season replacement on NBC and then picked up by CBS)

Number of seasons: 7

Show description: Themed on supernatural gifts, its lead character, Allison DuBois (played by Patricia Arquette), is a medium employed as a consultant for the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney's office. The show was initially based on the experiences of medium Allison DuBois, who claims she has worked with law enforcement agencies across the country in criminal investigations.

I absolutely loved this show and was really mad that it got cancelled and even more ticked at how they decided to end the series. This show was one of the more realistic based shows I've seen , as far as marriage, motherhood, work and life are concerned. Maybe, because it was based off a real Medium named Allison Dubois, that's why it had more realism to it. Whatever it was though, it was interesting getting a look into the life of a Medium and her dreams and how it helped her help the police solve crimes. I know Mediums are another thing people can't wrap their heads around, but I believe there's people like that. People who are given special gifts, that the rest of us aren't. And, I liked seeing her use her gift to help people. I also loved her family, so adorable (husband and kids). I wish this show could have had at least one more season or at least better ending to it then it did. But, it was good show and I really enjoyed it. And, luckily for Patricia Arquette she's getting another stab at prime time with another CSI spin off called CSI: Cyber. Hopefully, this series has better out come for her then Medium did.

11. Angel (WB)

Number of seasons: 5

Show description: is an American television series, a spin-off from the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I never saw Buffy The Vampire Slayer or Angel, when they were on television. I didn't get my first taste of either show until I saw reruns of it on Fox. Needless to say I fell in love with both shows and loved Buffy and Angel together and was sad they broke up and he left Sunnydale, but happy he got his own show. I liked the whole vampire with a soul thing and watching peoples expressions when they realized they were about to get their asses kicked by Angel, totally priceless lol. It was good show and I liked it, so it was upsetting that it only had 5 seasons. Especially, since the way season 5 end was setup as a season finale not a series. Though once you see it and watched half the cast get bumped off, you realize something is up. Still, they left it at Angel and Spike and the rest of th gang (that was left) getting ready to take on the evil Law firm Wolfram and Hart, which is exactly how they ended it. With them getting ready to fight, but never knowing how it ended. I choose to believe Angel kicked ass and prevailed like always lol. Still, it did have a good run and at least David Boreanaz wasn't out of job for too long because he find more television success with Bones on Fox.

12. Witches of East End (Lifetime)

Number of seasons: 2

Show description: Set in the fictional seaside town of East End, it follows the lives of a family of witches – Joanna Beauchamp (Julia Ormond) and her two grown-up daughters, Freya Beauchamp (Jenna Dewan Tatum) and Ingrid Beauchamp (Rachel Boston), as well as her sister Wendy Beauchamp (Mädchen Amick).

I wasn't sure about this show at first, but watching it I got hooked easy. I like the whole witched craft thing, it's cool. I loved Charmed and this was like that but more intense, more swearing and more sex (since it was on cable lol). Aside, from all that in it's two seasons it proved to be a really good, sit at the edge of your seat eerie kind of show. So, I'm really bummed that it recently got cancelled and there will be no season 3. I'm grateful for the 2 seasons I did get to see but sad that they didn't announce the cancellation sooner. Because, now we'll never get closure to the story lines that they had set up at the end of season to 2 preparing you for season 3. That really sucks! But, I'm just going to pretend Wendy came back to life. And, Freya and Killian walked off in the sunset and can be together now, with no complications. Since it's cancelled, it's what choose to believe. I also choose to hope maybe some other network will pick it back up and there will be a season 3 ( wishful thinking on my part)

13. 666 Park Avenue (ABC)

Number of seasons: 1

Show description: The show stars Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Vanessa Williams, and Terry O'Quinn and follows a couple who learns that the Manhattan apartment building that they just moved into, including its upscale tenants, might be possessed by a mysterious demonic force.

I realize a show about the devil might be hard for some people to take, but it was never said that he was it just indicated that he might be. The show wasn't really demonic in nature, but more eerie then anything else. It had very creepy and eerie elements to it and it was really good show. So, sucks that it only got one season. Even worse was that in got cancelled in the winter but they decided to be cruel and play the remaining 4 episodes in the series over the summer and tease people with ending of Jane and Henry marrying, her father turning out to be Gavin (the presumed devil) and Jane telling Henry she was pregnant. Since, there was never a season 2 we didn't get to see how any of that would have played out. Which totally sucked and still sucks to this day, it was good show and I don't get why they couldn't have tried at least a second season to see how it would have taken. Oh well.

14. Close To Home (CBS)

Number of seasons: 2

Show description: is an American crime drama television series and starred actress Jennifer Finnigan as Annabeth Chase, a Deputy Prosecutor for Marion County, Indiana.

I don't remember everything about this show, since it's been awhile since it's been on. I do know that I really liked this show and was upset when it got cancelled. In the end of the first season Annabeth's husband got killed off and I wondered how the show was going to work without him, since it wasn't just about her being a lawyer but also a wife and mother and juggling all that. The second season came and it worked out fine, now it was focused on her being a lawyer and widowed single mother. When the second season finale came, it was pretty obvious the show wasn't coming back. Being as they killed half the cast. So, though I wish there would have been a thrid season and the show would have lasted longer. For the 2 seasons it did have, it was a good show and I still remember it (not everything, but enough to know I miss it).

Well, those are all the shows I wish wouldn't have been cancelled (at least the ones I can think of lol. I'm sure there's many more). If there's any television shows that didn't get mentioned or that you are ticked got cancelled (be them past or present), feel free to list them in the comments below.

  • Great list. I feel the same way about the majority of those listed, primarily those that were on the major broadcast networks. I hope you're watching Scorpion, The Mystery of Laura, and NCIS NO. Have you tuned in on Downton Abbey? Maybe the best acted TV show I have ever seen. Beautifully written.

    • I love Downton Abbey. It's definitely the best thing on TV right now, and I'm super picky with what I watch (I don't watch a whole lot of TV at all). I'm glad Season 5 has finally started over here.

    • Show All
    • I'm lost?

  • Not to sound like a total perv, but did Season Two of Client List come out? I heard JLH gets naked, and I've been waiting to see the goods for like 15 years. Talk about Must See TV, haha. I don't usually come off this creepy, but I have a very special place in my heart for JLH. We're the same age, and I've been in love with her since K. I. D. S. Incorporated, haha.

      extra features in the DVD release :P And, you don't sound creepy.

  • @loveisbeautiful Great list, I miss CSI NY. One that I would have added to the list was Boss, I think it was on the Starz network and it was great.

  • You watch too much TV but then again, I'm not a programme person, never have been until AHS. I would only be sad if American Horror Story stopped making new seasons but that's only because it's well written, sick and twisted. More twisted than most horror movies I've seen. It got a better reaction out of me in the first ten minutes than the whole Saw series. I love that programme. <3

    • I don't consider watching tv before I go to sleep to be too much.

    • Show All
    • It was just a neutral comment because it appears you've watched all of these in depth and I don't know anyone who watches so many seasons and different programmes, though I do know people who get hooked on good ones like Game Of Thrones. Obviously to me, it looks like you watch loads of TV because I rarely do.

    • Well, whatever the reason. It was a comment that didn't need to be said.

  • Oh my gosh, 'Medium' was the best show ever! I had never heard of it until @Sparrow24 recommended it to me. I watched all 7 seasons on Netflix and I was soooo sad when it was over! Joe is still my favorite TV character.

    0|0

    • Yes, it was! I loved that show SO much! I loved all the people in it and Allison and Joe
      are an adorable couple. I was bummed it got cancelled and even more upset when Joe got
      killed off in the seris finally. I'm still upset about to this day.

    • Oh, I know! The ending sucked, I was legitimately upset also, I'm pretty sure I shed a few tears. Lol

    • Haha, yeah I did too.

  • I wish Secret Circle and Eastwick wouldn't have been cancelled... :(

  • Some of those shows weren't cancelled, they just retired. Like What Not to Wear. They did 10 seasons and they thought that was enough I guess. I spent know the whole story but that's what I heard all over TV and the internet.

    • Well they have list of cancelled and renewed shows every year and What Not Wear was on the cancelled list. And, if a show is ending because it had a long run and think that's enough. They put that in there, too

    • I did not know. Like I said, don't know the whole story.

  • I wish Lie To Me hadn't been cancelled :(

    Arrested Development
    Pushing Daisies

    Arrested Development came back years later with a Netflix season but it'd been too long and the season just wasn't... right. So sad.
