Your Top 5: TV Shows That Were Cancelled Too Early

post #1 of 135
Thread Starter 
What have you people got for me? Firefly, Freaks & Geeks, Jericho, Party Down, and Veronica Mars; these are some of the obvious ones. I want to hear all different kinds.

M*A*S*H Family Guy is definitely up there. The only one to actually come BACK. Also, Arrested Development makes the list.

King Arthur & the Knights of Justice!

Action - Jay Mohr as an arrogant, d-bag film producer

SportsNight - Aaron Sorkin's first show - went 2 1/2 seasons but got jacked around with timeslots and schedule changes.

K-Street - one season on HBO. Confusing but cool.

The Duck Factory - a young Jim Carrey as an animator. Lasted one season on NBC.

And there's one more, but I'm completely blanking on the name.

I liked Mister Sterling. I think perhaps it was just because it was the first show that I realized I had gotten in to (like planning my night to watch a new episode) and it lasted one season.

Werewolf
The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Andy Richter Controls the Universe
Journeyman
New Amsterdam

Arrested Development
Misfits of Science
Rubicon
Hardball (not the Chris Matthews one)

I'm tempted to say The Wire, because it's such an amazing show and I suspect they could've focused on one, maybe two, more institutions and then quit (I believe Simon planned to do the Church and then the TV media). However, the ending felt clean anyway, so I'm satisfied either way.

arrested development is the main one that comes to mind. Amazing show that got attention way too late.

Gunsmoke. I'm sure they had at least one more season they could have given us.
