Which canceled show will you miss the most? – Poll

Each network announced their show cancellations last week, now you can vote for the one that you will miss the most!

With the network upfronts over, we know now for sure which of our favorite shows will be returning and those that have been officially canceled. It’s always sad to say goodbye to at least a few shows, but occasionally another network will pick up a canceled show.

It doesn’t happen often, but it has been known to happen. For example: Southland, Law and Order: CI, Cougar TownThere’s been buzz that Unforgettable may get picked up by another network. And, Netflix is considering reviving the oldie but goodie Jericho.

I posed the question to my fellow clackers:  From those shows that have been canceled, which will you miss the most and like to see continued on another network? I also asked them to suggest a potential network to save their pick if they had one in mind.

The only shows considered were those that aired their full season (however short) and were not picked up for another season. The cancelled shows include: A Gifted Man, Alcatraz, Awake, Bent, Best Friends Forever, CSI: Miami, GCB, Harry’s Law, Missing, Pan Am, Ringer, Terra Nova, The Finder, The Firm, The River, The Secret Circle, and Unforgettable.

Carla: I’d love to see more Alcatraz. I really hoped that FOX would give it another season to get into the mythology. Since Netflix considered picking up Terra Nova, but passed, they could be a good fit for the sci-fi, mythology based mystery, Alcatraz.

An: I’d like to see Best Friends Forever get picked up by TBS. It had a very ‘My Boys‘ vibe (without the boys).  I liked Unforgettable, but I’m not certain I want to see it picked up. The finale left the show in a good place  — she returns home, discovers the guy who she thought killed her sister and felt at peace with that decision and finally shares a quiet moment with her former lover.

Meredith: NBC’s Awake has really grown on me. The lead actor, Jason Isaacs, has been doing some great work in the last few episodes as he’s unraveling the mystery and growing more desperate. Plus I really want to find out what the crooked cops did to his memory and which of his two realities is real. Seriously, who doesn’t want to know which of his family members is still alive?

Liz: Since Awake was already mentioned, I’ll say Pan Am – it felt like it was just finding its feet and could’ve developed into something more if given more time.  I’m sure it’s not a truly viable alternative, but maybe it could’ve gone to Lifetime?

Jaylen: You know, I think I’d like to see GCB get picked up by another network. I thought the show was delightfully over the top, and the writing was on point. Those actresses knew how to deliver. Canceling that show should be considered a sin!

Chuck: Actually, there aren’t many scripted shows that got cancelled that I’ll miss. There are shows that I was going to catch up on over the summer — The Secret Circle, Alcatraz, Pan Am — but I only caught a couple of those show during their initial run. I was enjoying GCB though, and I think ABC should have given a chance to develop. Everyone I know who watched it, loved it. I would hate to think the decision came down to pressure from the Million Moms (as they are proudly claiming). The show had a great cast, great characters, was well written, and just very funny. I think it’s a missed opportunity for ABC.

Brett: I have to go with Bent. Despite the short run, it was actually my favorite NBC comedy this season.

Christina: I kind of think Ringer could be fun on Lifetime or the Soap network, especially if it were more willing to embrace its campiness in Season 2. Somewhere in that show, there was a fun, campy romp waiting to come out. I doubt the people involved would ever move it to one of those places, though.

What show will you miss the most? You can vote up to once a day for one show through Monday, May 28th at Midnight PT. If you have more than one favorite, stop by again and vote for that show. If your favorite canceled show isn’t listed, please support it in the comments.

Never got into any of these new shows, but I voted for “Awake” because I’ve adored Jason Isaacs for many years and always hoped/expected him to become a huge star. He oozes leading-man charisma.

Please save The Secret Circle!!!

Voted for Awake for quality, but honorable mention to Ringer for quality crazy.

May 22, 2012 at 8:50 AM

you should have put Community on it, it’s as good as canceled in my mind until I see what the first 6 eps of the 13 ep season are like

May 22, 2012 at 11:45 AM

I will miss far too many of these shows…i watched a gifted man, alcatraz, secret circle, ringer, unforgettable,awake, missing,harry’s law,the firm, and the river. The river is the only one i won’t miss. I have just received a Neilson box, so I am hoping this will somehow help with what I watch from here on in. My fav was JERICHO!

May 22, 2012 at 4:32 PM

Pan Am. *sigh* So sad we’ll never get a second season.

May 22, 2012 at 6:10 PM

the whole frat wants Unforgettable and Poppy back on any channel

May 22, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Definitely The Finder – it seems like a very USA Network show. Also sad to see Awake, Bent, and Ringer go.

May 22, 2012 at 7:08 PM

I was going to say Community but we decided that was a separate issue. I am sure it will still be enjoyable, but it will NOT be the same.

Bummer !!! I’m really upset that so many dumb “reality” shows r on TV taking over prime time b/c they’re cheap 2 produce and appeal 2 some teens and Simpletons who like this mindless c**p. Pretty much 1/2 of the shows I watch are getting cancelled – starting with Desp.Housewives & House, which (I can understand) ran their course. But the others: Awake, Alcatraz, Terra Nova, Unforgetable, Missing and A Gifted Man were GOOD SHOWS and should have been given a chance! They were different from the “procedurals” and the usual cop shows. CSI Miami is the only one of the 3 CSIs I still like – why not cancel CSINY instead ? I stopped watching it yrs ago anyway… Well, I got it off my chest. But it still sucks!

This is pretty educational to me… I haven’t seen a single episode of any of those shows, in fact half of them I never even heard of. Back in the day that would have been unheard of, everyone always knew basically what every show was about, and probably tried most of them unless they were on opposite something completely unmissable. Now I have Dish/DVR and Netflix and Hulu, so there are hundreds of shows to pick from and I just don’t pay attention to things based on where they are on the dial or what time they air.

I’m having a great time right now watching a show called Regenesis… something that ran for three years and has been off the air for years now, but it’s new to me. See if you can arrange to get it picked up by someone would you… but wait, if we have -that- power, lets revive the single most mistaken cancellation ever, Firefly. Only that wouldn’t fit your poll list because it didn’t run its full season!

of course I’ll miss TSC the MOST because it is just amazing and has got lots of potential for a new season!

May 23, 2012 at 8:39 AM

the secret circle! the season finale was fantastic e brought a lot of possibilities to season 2! we want it back! that show was amazing and can not finish here! we will keep it alive as long as we can! and we will try everything to tsc be pick up by another network…

May 23, 2012 at 1:44 PM

The Secret Circle should be saved! Sign these:

May 23, 2012 at 3:20 PM

They need to bring back The Secret Circle!

May 23, 2012 at 3:39 PM

I will miss The Secret Circle and Gale Harold.

May 23, 2012 at 8:05 PM

Definitely TSC this show has so much potential andi loved watching it every Thursday.

May 24, 2012 at 12:20 AM

I want The Secret Circle back……… Missing it terribly

May 24, 2012 at 12:20 PM

I will definitely miss the Secret Circle the most! Right now, and all of its affiliates are working on doing just that; saving the secret circle! We’d like to see it get picked up by ABC or MTV or anyone really! The show was great and this huge following is supporting it, the writers, the amazing cast and the spirit of the show. We really hope to see it back on the air to at least get some form of closure that we’ll never get with the single season. Please!

May 25, 2012 at 1:15 AM

I voted for The Secret Circle….its cancellation was unjust….UGH!

May 25, 2012 at 12:29 PM

the secret circle was awesome. the cw made a mistake canceling it. i wish another network would pick up the show like mtv.

May 26, 2012 at 7:16 PM

I’d love to see a second season of TSC! Such a shame it was cancelled. Hope a different network will decide to pick it up. The story was getting more and more interesting!

May 27, 2012 at 10:36 PM

Finally got Bent up from 0% to 1%. I agree with Brett that it was NBC’s strongest sitcom offering of the last few seasons.

May 28, 2012 at 5:38 PM

The Secret Circle

May 29, 2012 at 12:46 AM

I voted for The Secret Circle.
It shouldn’t have been cancelled.
The show is really good and i have my fingers crossed that another network will pick it up.

August 4, 2012 at 8:47 AM

save the secrete circle. We want it….

August 20, 2012 at 6:12 AM

Fox and CW have terrible track records with canceling amazing shows. Look what happened to Terra Nova and Alcatraz. You left us high and dry with so many unrevealed secrets. Show like vampire diaries and hart of dixie are still on air while you cancelled amazing shows with great story line like Alcatraz,awake and The secret circle. Godddd, we have enough VAMPIRESSS already. Vampires diaries sucks, i’m sorry to say that. at least If you want to watch a good series with Vampires, go watch True Blood.
