Cancellations & Renewals Reactions

Now that the fates of the shows of the new Midseason 2015 season have (mostly) been decided, our editors took a minute to reflect on what the networks got right—and what they got wrong.

 

Adam's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Bad Judge Bad Judge

    It's hard to believe, but yes, this was an actual television show that somehow managed to air, and not a parody ala Arrested Development.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Better Call Saul Better Call Saul

    It's so much better than I could have ever imagined, and I never want it to end.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Hell on Wheels Hell on Wheels

    Sure, it's slow, but since AMC is willing to invest so much time on the dragging Walking Dead franchise, what's the problem?




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Girls Girls

    I can't deal with another season of Marnie and/or Adam yelling at things.

 

Alex's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Gracepoint Gracepoint

    Some British shows should just stay British!




  • Glad to see renewed:

    The Last Man on Earth The Last Man on Earth

    I'm not sure how they'll stretch this concept for another season, but it's funny enough to find out!




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Selfie Selfie

    Sure, it was a little corny, but I thought 2015 Eliza had potential!




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce

    Look, just because it's decent for Bravo doesn't mean it's good. "Scripted" is just NOT their thing!

 

Leah's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Allegiance Allegiance

    This warmed over knockoff of The Americans never should have happened in the first place.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    The Last Man on Earth The Last Man on Earth

    The future may be bleak, but at least we can laugh at it.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Intruders Intruders

    Call me crazy, but I wanted to see what was next for the immortal body jumper society.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    The Odd Couple The Odd Couple

    Every single person involved in this show deserves for it to be so much better. Alas, it's a testament to mediocrity.

 

Mony's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Mulaney Mulaney

    Everything about this show was over the top. And not funny.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Gotham Gotham

    I like a slower paced background comic piece — although I'm not really a Batman fan.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Top Gear (UK) Top Gear (UK)

    Sure, Jeremy is an asshole and punched a producer in the face... but this was an awesome trio, and the UK version is/was way more candid than the US will ever be.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Manzo'd with Children Manzo'd with Children

    ...this family... Did anyone even watch the first season??? I didn't even know it was on. I'd much rather watch a show about Danielle and her kids.

 

Morgaine's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Revenge Revenge

    This show was becoming untennable. Good call, ABC.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Fresh Off the Boat Fresh Off the Boat

    The Asian version of Everybody Hates Chris, this new comedy was actually funny from the start, and has plenty more antics up its sleeve. More, please!




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Garfunkel & Oats Garfunkel & Oats

    These girls are really funny! Guess it's back to the youtubes for them...




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Keeping Up with the Kardashians Keeping Up with the Kardashians

    Why won't this blight of a show die already?

 

Rachel's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Allegiance Allegiance

    Just watch The Americans.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    This show is a delight and (almost) fills the hole left in our hearts after 30 Rock concluded. So glad it will be returning for a second season.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Looking Looking

    No, this show wasn't perfect, but it was headed in the right direction its second season and I wasn't yet ready to part with Patrick and his crew.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Mike & Molly Mike & Molly

    Just set Melissa McCarthy free already!

 

Zaz's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    The Millers The Millers

    This show was a blight on the face of comedy.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    How to Get Away with Murder How to Get Away with Murder

    Uh... hello, how else would I find out who killed X next season?




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Witches of East End Witches of East End

    I'm still upset about this. So much wasted hotness.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Scorpion Scorpion

    So many cliches, so little time. Ugh.

 

Alex Elias's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Constantine Constantine

    As someone who ♥ demons like fangirls ♥ vampires, I'm appalled by how hokey Constantine was and the cringe-worthy character writing.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    iZombie iZombie

    Been waiting so long for another show with a Tru Calling-esque premise and Izombie has phenomenal writing and is a ton of fun




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Forever Forever

    With an extremely likeable & brilliant character and engaging and clever plots each week there is absolutely no reason Forever should be canceled.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    American Crime American Crime

    The awfulness of this serial drama knows no bounds. Its a bunch of depressing people we dont like complaining about how life sucks each week.

 

Alison's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    LeAnn & Eddie LeAnn & Eddie

    Who are these two again?




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Broad City Broad City

    Abbi and Ilana are the most outrageous and entertaining best friends I never had




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Franklin & Bash Franklin & Bash

    Where will I get my Zack Morris fix now!?




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Man Seeking Woman Man Seeking Woman

    It's a stretch to call this show a "comedy." One episode was more than enough for me.

 

Ardo's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Witches of East End Witches of East End

    This was a fun show but the second season felt a bit lackluster. I'm not excited to see it go but I'm also not surprised.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    The 100 The 100

    The 100 has been a fabulous show that's self aware and comments on justice, sacrifice etc. I refuse to let it go and I'm glad it's getting a chance.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Red Band Society Red Band Society

    This show grew on me and it's sad to see it go. RIP Silver Haired Hottie aka Dr. Jack McAndrew




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Gotham Gotham

    For a show that's about Gotham before the Batman seen through the eyes of a young James Gordon, it feels a lot like a Batman origin story.

 

Audrey's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Covert Affairs Covert Affairs

    This show used to be so fun and exciting, but it became lack-luster and tedious. Time to let this one go.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    12 Monkeys 12 Monkeys

    This show gets better and better each week! I'm glad it's going to get a chance to stretch its legs.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    A to Z A to Z

    Although it blended in to all the other quirky rom-coms this season, the premise was cute and I will miss seeing Cristin Milioti's face on my TV.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Girls Girls

    Girls seems increasingly out of touch and irrelevant. Each week I think, "Do I care about any of these characters? Do I even like any of them?"

 

Davis's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Gracepoint Gracepoint

    You're better off just watching Broadchurch




  • Glad to see renewed:

    The Fall The Fall

    Gotta love this underrated crime gem. I mean any show with Gillian Anderson or Jamie Dornan in it makes me happy.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Constantine Constantine

    Sure, it wasn't the best. But I'll definitely be missing this cynical demon hunter.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Gotham Gotham

    While this show had a lot of potential, most of it was wasting on kid Wayne and kid villains who have a long way to go before they become watchable.

 

Nicole's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Red Band Society Red Band Society

    The premise was so good, but the execution was oh-so-bad. Let's put Octavia Spencer in a show that doesn't epitomize mediocrity? Yes?




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Chasing Life Chasing Life

    There's always room in life for a fabulously weepy show, and Chasing Life fits the bill!




  • Sad to see canceled:

    About a Boy About a Boy

    I've been obsessed with Minnie Driver ever since her Good Will Hunting days and she was no less than delightful in this film to television adaptation.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    2 Broke Girls 2 Broke Girls

    I'm so over this show. It elicited a few laughs at the beginning, but now the bad writing and clichèd jokes are growing old.
