What's Hot Today

5 Shows Canceled Too Early

Television is a tough business. Only a fraction of the pilots that are shot actually make it to the small screen. Just three episodes of a new show may air before the network decides to wield its overactive ax. And many more brand new series are only allowed one measly season before they're canceled for good. Granted, many definitely deserved to go. But in commemoration of all those beautiful shows that passed too early, here are five I strongly believe were taken before their time.     10 Things I Hate About You The television adaptation of the hit '90s classic, 10 Things I Hate About You was bound to be television gold. Sadly, ABC Family didn't agree and axed the show after a single season due to poor ratings. Incidentally, I happened to discover the TV show before I even knew a movie preceded it – and I was hooked instantly. Lindsey Shaw made a fiery Kat Stratford, while Ethan Peck reprised the role of Patrick Verona with the perfect dose of broodiness (and hotness). In my humble opinion, this show should have been given the opportunity to grow and mature out of the plot of the original film. It could have gone to great places!       Chasing Life Killed after two seasons, though far more recently, Chasing Life graced our screens for the first time in 2014. Whip-smart and resourceful reporter April Carver, played by the enchanting Italia Ricci, got our ambition juices flowing (not to mention our ugly tears) as we watched her chase after her journalistic dreams while also battling an ugly diagnosis of leukemia. I could rarely watch this show without a tissue box by my side – a testament of both quality writing and acting. Chasing Life kind of had it all: warm family, spunky friendships, love triangles, hot men, high-powered jobs, tears galore. Man, should it have been given another shot at television glory.       Happy Endings There are many shows that I've loved in my life, but none that I could spend as much time waxing poetic on as Happy Endings . This show is my baby (if one can claim a show as one's baby? Eh, let's go with it). For me, Happy Endings is up there with the best of the best comedy shows of all time; think: Friends, Will & Grace, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia . There isn't a single character in the quirky friends group around which this show is centered that doesn't belong, or doesn't add his or her own layer of hilarity, which is a difficult feat. That being said, Adam Pally, as the non-stereotypical gay Max Blum, and Casey Wilson (once of SNL ), as the lovable Penny Hartz, are nothing short of comedic gold consistently throughout all three seasons. This show should be mandatory watching for anyone who considers him or herself a lover of television. Please bring back Happy Endings . PLEASE!!! OK, I'm done.       Off the Map This was a little-known show that aired somewhere in the vast galaxy of television programming sometime in 2011. Another one of those "doctor shows with a twist," Off the Map only managed to air for a single season of 13 episodes. Though it may have been gimmicky, I still maintain that it had potential; ABC pulled the cord too soon on this one. Not to mention, it had some pretty high-powered forces behind it too (QUEEN Shonda Rhimes as one of the executive producers). The show took a slew of hot doctors and essentially dumped them in the middle of the jungle. Mix in with that infectious diseases, some bristly personalities, sexy locals, and high libidos – and I think most would agree, you've got a recipe for success. Too bad it wasn't given its fair moment in the spotlight.       State of Affairs Katherine Heigl's comeback vehicle also was only afforded 13 episodes to make its case to audiences. The show centered around Charlie Tucker (Heigl), a top CIA analyst in charge of the president's "daily briefing." Incidentally, the president was played by Alfre Woodard, which, like... hello! Extra points for casting a female president! I'm not usually one for D.C.-based (aka political) shows, but State of Affairs had me hooked from its pilot, which began with a flashback to a frightening scene in Kabul and moved on full force from there. Heigl played a spunky lead who perpetually commanded the screen – and her costars were no pushovers either. Chris McKenna as the pleasing (both facially… and also acting-ly? Just give me this one...) and impassioned Nick Vera stood his own next Heigl. Sadly, though, State of Affairs was destined to join the ranks of shows not given their due televisual diligence.       div.post p { text­align: justify; }

Youll never guess who this gorgeous actors grandfather is

You could be forgiven for thinking youve seen Ethan Peck before. The handsome, dark-haired 29-year-old actor and model is the spitting image of his late grandfather, iconic actor Gregory Peck. Ethan has regularly appeared in movies (In Time, Eden) and TV shows (10 Things I Hate About You) since he was a kid. But viewers... //nypost.com/2016/02/12/youll-never-guess-who-this-gorgeous-actors-grandfather-is/

'10 Things I Hate About You': What would have been in season two

For fans of ABC Family's canceled series 10 Things I Hate About You, the Monday blahs are worse than usual. Where once fans had snappy dialogue, romance, and Ethan Peck to look forward to on Monday evenings, now there is just the empty void left by cancellation. “I was telling someone it feels kind of like a breakup,' 10 Things creator Carter Covington tells EW.com. 'Like you got dumped by this person and you're like, 'Wait a second. But we had such a great thing going on. Why would you dump me?' Before you start writing angry letters to ABC Family, know that Covington doesn't blame the network. 'I know they loved the show,” he says, adding, 'I think they were in a difficult, difficult position to try to figure out how to market and bring back one half-hour comedy by itself.' For those frustrated by the series finale's many cliffhangers, Covington sends his apologies: 'It's really hard for me because there's nothing I would wish more than to have been able to have a series finale that really provided some closure for everybody.' Even though that was impossible -- production wrapped before the cancellation axe came down - Covington is satisfied with how things ended. 'In the life of the series, to me, Kat and Patrick were always going to run off into the sunset together,' he says. 'In a way, I'm happy that the series ended where it did because at least they were together.' To Read More Click Here .
