Monday Listicles: 10 TV Shows Cancelled Too Soon

NUTS! It's time for Monday Listicles.  This week's topic, suggested by Jen is 10 TV Shows Cancelled Too Soon.  Oh my!  It seems every show I like gets cancelled too soon!  LOL.  Thanks Jen for such a cool topic.  Next week's topic for Monday Listicles is 10 Pictures You Have Taken– this topic was thought up by Heather.  Okay, so here we go… 10 TV Shows Cancelled Too Soon…








1.Jericho – by far, one of my favorite shows of all-time. Unfortunately, it was cancelled. But, the fans struck back. The video below shows a pivotal point in the show. The NUTS story. When the show was cancelled, the fans began sending nuts to the network. It became the battle cry of Jericho fans everywhere. It was enough to bring the show back one more season.


2.  24 – Let's be honest.  I cried at the end.


3. iCarly – I know this is a kids show.  But, I loved it.  Let's just hope Cat and Sam live up to the legend of iCarly.


4.  The Unit – Was absolutely in love with this one.  I yelled at the TV.  I cried.  I was very disappointed how it ended.


5.  Fresh Prince of Bellaire… I'd STILL be watching it…


6.  Are You Being Served? – Okay… so, now you know… I am a closet British Comedy freak…


7.  Quantum Leap


8.  Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles


9.  Knight Rider (2008)


10.  WKRP (And, yes… I know it was on for 4 years.)

  1. Oh, I am with you on Quantum Leap (and I HATED the way they ended that one) and Sarah Connor Chronicles. Mr. Sandwich liked SCC better than I did, but I thought it was really well done and just starting to reach its real potential.

  2. Wow – what a great topic!  I agree with SO many of your choices and I too cried when the lights went out on Jack Bauer!!  I loved Quantum Leap as well and I'm pretty upset that Hereos was cancelled a few seasons ago!  Save the cheerleader – save the world!!!  Apparently not:-(

  3. I only watched the first season of 24. I get mad at a show and fire them. I was mad that the wife was killed in season one. I really liked her. You've named some good ones. I loved Quantam Leap. What was the other show sort of like it – the guy that got the newspaper early and went back in time to try to fix it? Oooh a SWEET thing. My 8 year old has been watching Knight Rider with me. We will watch two episodes for movie night if we can't find anything else. He did bust my nostalgic bubble by asking me if it was in black and white when I watched it. :-/

  4. The Unit! I miss that show. We stopped watching before it hit the end, though, for some reason. I think we moved and missed a batch of episodes and that was that. 🙂 Interesting list! I kind of liked Terminator, also, so too bad it disappeared!

  5. WKRP! Yes! I loved that show! I forgot about Quantum Leap. I never watched it, but it always came on after another show I watched – I can't rmember which one. I always saw the opening credits.

  6. Stopping by from Monday Listicles.

    1, 7, 8, and 9– I’m with you on missing those!

    5– LOL… maybe his kids can make a sequel show. West Hollywood instead of West Philly for born and raised though…

  7. YES, WKRP…great show and awesome clip. I LOVED quantum leap…great show…

  8. LOVE LOVE LOVE Are you being served! While you're at it, Fawlty Towers??? Come on! And even Keeping Up Appearances! Let's do a British comedy cancelled too soon!!!  And so loved WKRP, I love catching it on reruns! Great list!

  9. Was’t big on Towers, but Loved Keeping Up Appearances. My dad and I used to watch BBC all the time!

  10. Hope you are doing well! Stopped by your blog this morning!

  11. Jericho, Are you being served, quantum leap.. This could have been my list, except for iCarly never heard of that one??
