Mourn your favorite fallen shows here

Cancelledshows_lSlezak: Mandi, I just came out of the Idol Cave to discover that ABC canceled Women’s Murder Club (with Angie Harmon, left) this week. How am I supposed to go on?
Slezak: Maybe it wasn’t a hit in America, but it was a hit in my home. I am distraught. (Seriously!)
Mandi: I’d tell you to take comfort in the best-when-bare arms of Moonlight‘s Alex O’Loughlin (right), but that show got s—canned, too.
Mandi: If Mick and Beth don’t get it on in Friday night’s season finale, you will see me distraught. Why did I let myself get sucked in? (Pun not intended. But enjoyed!)
Mandi: By the way, I sat through the entire season of October Road, too. Now we’ll never know who that kid’s father is. And worse, Geoff Stults has no reason to leave me voicemails offering to dance shirtless in my office. Just cruel.
Slezak: What is wrong with this country?
Slezak: And if the Moonlight producers didn’t shoot a little wah-chicka-wah-wah in anticipation of potential cancellation, what is wrong with THEM?
Slezak: Clearly, this was not a good week for middling programming that’s very fun to watch with the brain shut off.
Slezak: I’m going to go find a mojito… you in?
Mandi: Can’t. I’ve got to catch up on seven seasons of According to Jim.

    I really liked Aliens in America- a family unit who were mostly nice to each other & funny situations. The Justin/Raja interplay was great as was the Tolchuck/Raja interplay. I will miss this show!

    just imagine this scenario:
    a major studio releases a 12 hour movie. the studio is urging you to invest an entire day watching their movie, promising that you will not be disappointed. they do, however, warn you that the last two hours of the movie were destroyed in a fire so the film is missing it’s entire ending!
    question: would you go see it? would anyone go see it?

    Thanks EW. I had been trying to piece-meal a list like this together from reading articles about the upfronts. *Quick tear for Moonlight*

    LOL. I didn’t like any of these shows. (and yes, I watched at least one episode of every single one of them)Sounds like the networks made a good call. The ones that should be staying (Chuck, Gossip Girl, Sarah Connor) are.
    (actually, Back to You wasn’t that bad. That Jonah Hill-ish news director was funny.

  • Jill

    I really enjoyed MissGuided and I think it was a great vehicle for Judy Greer. Alas.

  • Susan

    Let me first say that EW is my favorite mag & this website is the absolute best. OK – let me take a deep breath and scream “Men in Trees”??????!!! This is a quality, entertaining show with great characters and acting. Come on!!! But all the reality garbage stays???

  • stella

    i am totally disgusted by the networks. and yes – at the very least – they should ALWAYS give shows a couple hours to wrap up their story lines. it should be the LAW!
    ps: my personal heartbreak was the cancellation of “invasion” from a couple seasons back. i’m still haunted by that show.

    As my husband shouted, “Idiots!” when we discoverd WoMuCl was cancelled, I also wondered, “What is wrong with this country?” (Forget Barack and Hillary-this is importatnt!) It was good to start with, but really got better toward the end of the season. Hubby is still crying over Journeyman. And I still can’t forgive the CW and ASP for the entire Gilmore Girls debacle. (I know–it’s been a year) Maybe we should take up stamp collecting or read more.

  • good points, stella

    I’m not a fan of new laws. We have enough, but I like the idea of a law making sure shows spend a few hours wrapping up. Let’s get our representatives on it it now. Great idea! Also, the movie analogy was funny.

    I will miss “Moonlight”…a lot.

  • TL

    Journeyman was woefully underrated and underwatched.

  • danielle

    I’m heartbroken over “Moonlight.” Seriously. I can’t believe they canned it. And they so better get some vamp-lovin’ going on in the finale!
    I will miss:
    Men in Trees (I wanted her with Cash! And poor Annie!)
    Women’s Murder Club (somewhat interesting)
    October Road (seriously, WHO WAS THE DAD?)
    Miss Guided (Judy Greer got canned?? NOOOO! CRUEL WORLD CRUEL WORLD!)
    Moonlight (this is such a travesty, it’s unreal)
    Journeyman (Most realistic look at a paper i’ve seen yet, and I liked that British dude)
    WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU NETWORK PEOPLE??? Give a show a chance!!

  • Rooster Hater

    oh october road what about thee will i miss the most? The characters, the crazy plot twists, tom berenger, the foliage? only time will tell

  • Alex

    Aliens in America and Men in Trees.
    AiA was hysterical and smart. A gem no one discovered.
    Men In Trees was cotton candy TV. Not exactly healthy but oh so good.

  • Gretchen

    Miss Guided – what a shame….it was really cute.
