Keeping track of your favorite extinct TV shows

115238__daybreak_lPoor Day Break. Wait, you didn’t hear? It got canceled, which to many is not very surprising (though I was riveted by the first three episodes), but Taye Diggs (pictured) is probably bummed. Also, that William Shatner game show was killed as well. Blah.

TVSeriesFinale.com is a site that keeps track of how various TV shows have ended — from cancellations to season finales to searies finales. The site’s still pretty new (there are lots of links to nothing more than press releases), but its mini-series on The Golden Girls is pretty cool. Also great is the page of Gilligan’s Island video clips. (Was this REALLY the show’s first theme song?)

    I watched a couple episodes of the Nine and didn’t really care for it to much, but I still want to know. . . what exactly happened in there? Will we ever know??

    This is what ABC gets for getting rid of Lost until next February. It was a good ploy to premire new shows but those that are use to that time slot won’t bother to tune in.
    I don’t watch Lost, but I’m thinking about the influence ABC is going to have on other shows that I watch. I couldn’t stand to wait 3 whole months for a new ep of Greys.

  • Wanda

    I watched a few episodes of Kidnapped and got into it. I guess I was the only one since it was cancelled.

    One one hand, I appreciate how there will be no “repeat” episodes of “Lost” this year (it’s confusing enough as it is–one time I watched half of an episode before I realized it was a repeat) but I think they should have run the episodes straight through and put Daybreak in after they were over. It’s agony waiting three months for new episodes and I felt as if we were being manipulated into watching a new show just because it’s on in that time slot. I purposely did not watch Daybreak for that reason alone.

    Will this site tell me where I can view the seven episodes of “Smith” – since they have disappeared from CBS’ innertube?!?!?!?!?!!?

  • Kitt

    Well – yeah – it kinda did. you can buy episodes of Smith from Amazon.com. Who knew? Not me.

  • Lora

    Seriously, don’t you have spell check Gilbert?

    I am mad as hell they cancelled Day Break. I was enjoying it and thought it passed the time nicely till Lost came back. I certainly won’t be watching George Lopex or According to Jim reruns – if I didn’t watch them the first time, why would I care now?
    Does running mindless reruns really draw in more viewers and ad dollars than running new shows they have already paid for?
    All the networks are teaching me is don’t bother watching new shows, because they will cancel them as soon as they start to get good. I still haven’t forgiven CBS for canceling “Now and Again” six years ago after one season.

  • Charlie

    Gotta agree with RBlues. Why couldn’t they just run Lost in one shot, like Fox does with 24? I wasn’t going to watch Daybreak just because it was in the same timeslot. Why can’t there be separate TV seasons so that every show at least gets a real chance to thrive?
    Hopefully ABC will put Lost on at 9:00 again — I’m an old lady and can’t watch shows at 10:00 on a work night.

    Well, I have to say that I think I’m giving up on trying any new series until it’s guaranteed to last (ie. Heroes). I tried Kidnapped (cancelled), The Nine (most likely cancelled) and Daybreak (cancelled with only about six friggin’ episodes to go). So, once bitten, twice shy. Good luck gettin’ me to try a new show in 2007.

    Show Me The Money had the potential of being a good game show, had it not been for its cheesy dancers and Super cheesy host.

  • R.O.B.

    Please, EW or somebody with pull, get the network and the writers of these shows to PROMISE to post a nice-sized online article in the event their show gets cancelled that gives the millions of people that did watch the show an idea of the ending they had in mind. I would like to know how the heck Taye Diggs kept waking up on the same day. I would like to know what the writers of The Nine had in mind that went on in that bank for 52 hours that was SO devastating, and it better not have been “the bad guy made everyone rape each other”. Seriously – I love these serial shows, but it sucks to commit and then never get to know what was supposed to happen in the end. They should at least give us that.

  • WRC

    I agree about “Show Me the Money”. Decent idea, horrible host–and the dancers–WHAT was that about? I actually told my husband. “Let’s see how long this silly show lasts before getting cancelled”.

  • Sally

    I watched the series prem. of Daybreak, and honestly, I don’t like Taye Diggs. he can’t act, he has no charisma, he’s all muscle. He was a dancer for god’s sake before turning actor. None of the actors on the show really did anything for me. And the show itself, I can’t wait that long to figure stuff out. I’m watching Kidnapped online now and it’s in the final episode and it’s so convoluted. But it still has me guessing — why did they kidnap the kid?
    As for Smith – after watching all episodes online, I just didn’t like the characters – all thieves, all bad guys, not a good person amongst them. The show gave 1/100th of a second to the FBI trying to catch the bad guys and should have given more time to the FBI trying to figure out the gang of thieves. That’s where it went wrong – more time to the FBI, more cat and mouse, and less time to the thieves.

    I think a relevant topic is what networks should be willing to commit to when they plan a serial drama. They can’t know for sure whether it’ll be a “Lost” or a “Day Break” as far as viewership goes, but can they not plan anything in advance so they don’t make millions of viewers feel ripped off when a show is canceled before the major plotline is wrapped up? Wouldn’t it be good business sense in the long run to not alienate and anger viewers by refusing to air, on TV, shows that are already shot? (Putting the shows online is better than nothing, but not everyone wants to watch an episode in a little box on a computer screen — and some people don’t have the high speeds necessary to make watching an episode go smoothly.)
    One good thing about “Day Break” was its shorter run to begin with — which I thought ensured that ABC would go ahead and run it all even if numbers were low. I’m sure there are many things to consider that we viewers don’t understand, but it’s still really annoying.
