TV NEWS: Canceled Shows of the 2010-2011 TV Season
Please do not mistake my mourning for support of all canceled or on-the-bubble shows. I am a firm believer that if a show just doesn't work, cancel it. *cough*"One Tree Hill"*cough*the revived "Two and a Half Men"*cough*"Shit My Dad Says"*cough* Make room for new, fresh, and, please for the love of God, tolerable ideas.
That's really the only bright side. I look forward to seeing some of the laid-off breakout stars of this season again, from Olivia Munn ("Perfect Couples") to newcomer Jake Lacy ("Better With You") to Josh Stewart ("No Ordinary Family").
My only request to those TV executives who put the kabosh on some of our nightly entertainment without batting an eyelash is that they have the common decency to give us a proper ending. Perhaps millions upon millions of people haven't seen the series, but for the 0.7 million people who have, we'd appreciate a little closure—not the equivalent of a text-message breakup. I mean, I heard about it on Twitter. TWITTER! That's just cold.
