Cavemen--unwatchable
Carpoolers--had its moments
Cashmere Mafia--Lucy Liu drool
Jericho--Women who Skeet?
Cane--Jimmy Smits has six other shows, too, so no big deal.
Beauty & the Geek--The geeks were actually more attractive.
The Pussycat Dolls Present--how 2 B a stripper
Aliens in America--he has an accent, that's what makes it funny!
Las Vegas--not too bad, but Tom Selleck is no James Cahn
The Bionic Woman--just plain bad

The only one of those programs I've ever watched was Girlfriends and those were old reruns on BET.

I won't miss any of them.

Return of Jezebel James was painful. PAINFUL. disbelief

they took two of my favorite actresses - parker posey and lauren ambrose - and put them in a sitcom so damn stupid it made "small wonder" look like "an evening with oscar wilde".

it was so bad that i wondered for a moment if the entire point of the show was to realistically mimic a classic bad sitcom from the 80s...only, thinking that way didn't help make the show any better for me.

big ouch, that show. disbelief

I was near traumatized at the cancellation of Women's Murder Club. It was a guilty pleasure for me. I'm still hoping it will pop on cable.

Oprah's Big Give was cancelled by Oprah herself. She didn't want to renew.

Canterbury's Law??? I guess I was the only one who watched.

Journeyman I enjoyed but new it was going down.

The Bionic Woman was horrible from the beginning. Didn't stand a chance.

Glad that Damages and Samantha Who? made it.

I was always yelling at the TV when I watched men in trees cuz that broad with the glasses landed like the most insanely hot and beautiful and sensitive man that I would move to mars for and she never appreciated it and was always bitching. slam

we loved Beauty & The Geek, but the last season was painful, so it was time to be cancelled.

Didn't watch a single one of the others, and never even heard of most of them.

from what little i saw of that show, the geeks were hotter to me than most of the knuckleheads on "the bachelor" who were supposed to be some great catch. or, wait...was that the point of the show?

That's what I was saying above. The girls are skanky, and the geeks are like the geeky girl in the movies who removes her glasses to reveal a perfect "10"

Some of these deserved to go.

Men In Trees - Understood. Good SHow from What I heard
October Road - Again Good Show from what I heard
Oprah's Big Give - Was only on for Mid Season and did not get cancelled
Miss Guided - Not funny enough. Although I liked Kitty the Whore!
Carpoolers - PFFT Terrible show
Jericho - I don't get it. It has a following...fervent at that. Why not just let this show be?
Cane - THANK GOD THIS GOT CANCELLED!!!! Not that I watched, but I am happy for purely selfish reasons. Nestor Carbonell NEEDED to come back to LOST.
Moonlight - Yeah I heard this was decent
Viva Laughlin - You're kidding me? This was like Cop Rock but worse!
Back To You - Bland TV, Kelsey Grammar, Laugh Track, CBS...need I say more?
The Pussycat Dolls Present - :vomit:
Aliens in America - DAMN shame they got rid of this. Good companion to Everybody Hates Chris.
The Bionic Woman - Again terrible show. When the original Bionic Woman side character is more likeable from the main character...you have a problem.
Journeyman - People FINALLY got it and then it gets cancelled

MY shows that have been cancelled for no reason...

The 4400 - For a series that was a serial and LAUNCHED the USA networks original programming, they treated this show very badly and didn't give us an end. The 4400 has a HUGE international following.

Arrested Development-Aside from Seinfeld, probably the best American Comedy Ever!!! :fingerscrassed: for the Movie

Firefly - Well I guess when you take a semi sort of serial space drama and air all of the episodes out of order people CAN get a little confused.

Drive - Lasted 6 episodes and Drove Away. I hate FOX.

Day Break - Again GREAT Show. Fantastic and kept you on the edge of your seat. It wasn't "cancelled" but after 6 of 13 episodes shown it went straight to the web to be replaced with re-runs of According to Jim. confused

eek I had no idea The 4400 was cancelled. No wonder it seemed like forever to come back on. I started watching it late and really enjoyed it. Crap.

Still don't understand why they cancelled Arrested Development. Maybe because it was actually good!

Firefly rocks.
