ABC has had a lot of casualties this TV season, starting with their triple-axing of Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money. However, this is old news at this point, so instead we are focusing on all of ABC's more recent cancellations:
In the Motherhood - I'm not going to lie, I never even gave this Megan Mullally/Cheryl Hines comedy a shot, as it never struck me as all that funny. And apparently the viewers didn't embrace it either, as it flopped during its brief Thursday night stint. 4 episodes aired.
Cupid - Cancel me once, shame on you. Cancel me twice? Yeah, they never should have attempted to resurrect Cupid. It's permanent home was in the brilliant-but-canceled bin (as the version in 1999 headlined by Jeremy Piven meets this description). This version, although I agree there has been worse TV, was just a bad idea from the get-go. 6 episodes aired.
The Unusuals - This quirky cop procedural definitely had potential, but with the popularity of the now-renewed quirky cop procedural Castle...guess it wasn't unusual enough (or garnered the necessary ratings) for ABC to keep around. Remaining episodes still airing.
According to Jim - Longtime choice of many TV critics as the most hated show on TV (and not because it is necessarily the worst, but because it is pretty darn close, yet managed to survive for 8 seasons), Jim is finally saying goodbye. Yes, I cannot believe it either, but 8 seasons aired.
Samantha Who? - Quirky Christina Applegate memory-loss comedy, Samantha Who's cancellation was somewhat of a surprise. ABC definitely liked the show, but the numbers just weren't there to renew it for another season. 2 seasons aired.
Surviving Suburbia - It is unclear if this show is officially dead yet or not, but it should be, and likely will be soon. Remaining episodes begin airing this week.
Which ABC cancellation - recent or earlier in the year - has upset you the most? Are you the one person that will miss According to Jim?
