Cancelphobia: A Serious Condition Affecting Millions of Americans

I’ve recently been meeting more and more people who appear to be affected by a new phenomenon I’d like to dub "cancelphobia." People suffering from chronic cancelphobia refuse to start a new TV show because they’re simply too afraid it will be cancelled by the end of its first season—or even sooner. First I would like to send a message to people with cancelphobia: this is not your fault . You’ve contracted this condition as a direct result of the four major broadcast networks ( NBC , ABC , CBS , and FOX ). While these networks provide America with the bulk of its most popular primetime sitcoms and dramas, in years as of late, they have adopted policies not unlike that of the late, great warriors of Sparta. In Sparta, if a child was born weak or sick, rather than care for said child and raise it, they would—quite literally— chuck it off a cliff and leave it to the wolves . Major networks, with their ruthless, cannibalistic ways have had a deeply negative effect on television audiences; people are just too afraid to get attached to a show, in case it’s abandoned and fed to the wolves. Now I could go deep into the reasoning behind the networks’ ruthless decisions to cancel shows, and explain why they have all adopted these similar, highly competitive and unforgiving policies, but that’s not why I’m writing this. No, I’m here to (metaphorically) pat you on the back and tell you it’s going to be OK, and provide you with a piece of advice that might help: Keep watching TV! To fight your cancelphobia, remember why it is that you watch television in the first place. Your condition is telling you that it isn’t worth the pain of getting attached to a show only to have it be pulled out from under you, but I ask you this: isn’t it? You, like I, love television; that’s why you’re a member of SideReel. You love the suspense, the action, the laughter, and most of all, the emotion that comes from watching the characters you root for week after week. You love to support potential onscreen romances like #Casket or #Olicity . You love to tweet your favorite celebrities’ compliments in the hope that they’ll send you a two-word reply. How can you receive any of these great 21st century gifts if you choose not to start watching a show? Yes, it may very likely be cancelled, and quite frankly, going by the numbers alone, it probably will be—but that doesn’t matter! Enjoy it while it lasts, like Cadbury Mini Eggs™ . They only come out at Easter, and it’s that exclusivity that helps make them as phenomenal as they are. Let me ask you this: Do you think Firefly would be the cult classic it has become if hadn’t been canceled? Was it not worth it to watch those 14 episodes if only to know what everyone was talking about? Of course it was worth it! So I ask you, not for my sake, but for your own, keep watching television, and banish cancelphobia forever.
