If you bid "Desperate Housewives" a fond farewell last week, did you also mourn "Unforgettable," "Harry's Law" "Terra Nova" and "Ringer"?

21 hours a week is valuable.
True. And one of the questions I get is 'where do you get the time?' to do what I do.
I don't waste it on television. But that actually pisses some folks off.
You are probably right.
I’ll miss “Unforgettable”, and moments of “Hhouse”. But my big 5 made the cut:” Justified”, “Bones”, “Castle”, “NCIS”, and “Grimm”
Will be missing Terra Nova. They shouldn’t have spent so much time on character development and just jumped right to the dinosaurs shredding people. The T-Rex transport toward the end of the season was awesome!
First season and most of second season of House was great. After that it got very tedious. The last season was torture because of the horrible female supporting cast.
I really like Grimm. :)
As in many movies, you have to ignore a character that doesn’t fit. With NCIS, they have been trying to fit Gibbs with a love life and have yet to have any success. I say, leave it alone ... Gibbs is doing fine and will until the series ends.
but cancelled "Allen Gregory,"
A show so horrendously unfunny that it sucked the humor from the shows around it making them less funny too. It was like Al Franken that way.
ABC cancelled... "Charlie's Angels,"
I checked epguides.com and they actually showed seven episodes of it. I didn't think it lasted that long.
[NBC] ordered a heap of new series and cancelled ..."The Playboy Club,"
Three episodes and out.
Yeah, instead you sit your butt down and waste your time at FR. LOL.
I watched the first episode of ‘Harry’s Law’ and that made up my mind - good to see them go.
‘The River’ seemed like a long mini-series so no big deal. Just got done watching the last episode of “Awake’ online - it’s slow but had merit, I guess. ‘Terra Nova’ was neat, hopefully someone will pick it up on another network.
I watch most TV online - small window usually when I surf other stuff or do work/work....mostly it’s just background noise - but - no commercials:)so it cuts down time if I decide to really watch something - most half hour shows are down to 19 minutes, or less...hour shows around 41 minutes.
Disappointed to hear about “Pan Am”, but the last new show I really went out of my way to watch was “The Wonder Years”, and that ended what, twenty years ago?
agree with castle, ncis, and bones. i enjoyed finder but miss the british pilot bartender from the bones episode and enjoyed unforgetable. i watch almost as much on usa as i do mainstream; white collar, burn notice, in plain sight (gone), covert affairs.
am currently starting star trek deep space 9 from the library. i think ds9 was the best of the star treks but is third behind farscape (2) and babylon 5 (1).
(Puts on sunglasses.) They cancelled CSI Miami.
it’s late. FIREFLY is between babylon 5 and farscape and stargate sg1 is 4th.
My guess is the last scene of the last episode will reveal the entire series to be a dream by House who is a mass murderer locked up in an insane asylum.
I haven’t watched network TV since about 2007. I have maybe five TV shows that I watch all week. Any other TV viewing comes from DVDs. The rest of my spare time is spent on reading and hobbies.
CBS, ABC and NBC should just give up the news and entertainment business. All three are just pathetic. The cable networks are the only ones putting out good drama shows. Hardly anyone is putting out good comedy shows.
And instead of Firefly network TV keeps shows like Castle.
< smiling through the tears>
Harry’s Law is gone? I feel that a great burden has been lifted from me. Never watched it but I couldn’t escape the promos.
