    Now that I think of it, some of my most favorite shows got canceled very, very early in their runs...

    My list goes something like this...


    Starved
    The Comeback (with Lisa Kudrow - so hilarious... so sad it only survived one season on HBO)
    Freaks and Geeks (Critics' darling, poor ratings)

    ^i concur with the comeback. to me just as clever as curb your enthusiasm. stupid execs.

    i just learned the other day that one of the best written and acted series 'saving grace' on TNT was cancelled in september and the upcoming season is actually the final 9 episodes. truly sad because i thought holly was brilliant. i loved the idea....immortality and supernatural guardian angels....somehow without being condescending or shoving it down one's throat.

    another great programme that ended was la femme nikita.

    Absolutely. I felt so uncomfortable/embarrassed for Valerie during some parts, and that made me realize how good the show really was. I found the DVD for $4 at TJMaxx (after watching originally) and I was thrilled.

    Mom mom used to watch this... it was her guilty pleasure... I wrote it off as "fluff" but never actually saw an episode...

    ^I concur.
    I got hooked on that show after they started playing episodes on the Noggin channel like 4 years ago.
    I hate that Ugly Betty is getting cancelled :cry:
    It was getting so juicy as of late and was overall funny as hell.

    PUSHING DAISIES!!!

    i'm still not over it to be honest. it had everything you could want- original story lines, kristen chenoweth, great costumes, good acting and dreamy lee pace. wonderful, wonderful show that didn't deserve to go like that!

    I have bad luck with TV shows. I don't even like to pick any as my super # 1 favorite because I'm positive I must be dooming them when I do that.

    Wonderfalls
    Arrested Development
    Pushing Daisies :(
    I guess I could include Roswell too.

    I'm pretty sure there are probably more I can't currently remember.

    Oh goodness, and in the early 90s... as a young girl, mind you... I liked a show called Angel Falls, with Kim Cattrall. Bet nobody remembers that one. :innocent:

    There were also a lot of shows that I couldn't watch anymore because they were past my bed-time or were going on during school hours :furious:

    ^YES! I loved Girlfriends.
    Also, was Boy Meets World canceled? I never saw a series finale. If it was canceled, then it's #1 on my list of favorite canceled shows.

    I am so mad that this is going to be the last season for Ugly Betty! I'm sure i'm going to miss it, just like i've missed The L Word when it first ended :ninja::P
