More TV Shows Cancelled

And I don't know any of them. The full list on Variety, but here's highlights and it's mostly Network:

- Graceland
- Hannibal
- Extant
- Beauty and The Beast (...as a procedural...?)
- 19 Kids and Counting (SHOCKER)
- Lilyhammer
- Stalker (actually saw half an episode, not horrible, but at least Maggie Q and Dylan McWhathispants got an engagement out it)

UPDATED TO ADD: America's Next Top Model is done too! Dangit. I haven't watched in years but I lurved it back in the day.

I've heard of Graceland, but I didn't know SoapOperaDreamy Daniel Sunjata was on there or I might have at least checked it out, for the peepers alone



I'm only surprised that Extant made it two years, I mean...peepers alone will only get you so far. I was surprised to see Mindy Kaling's show on that list, and the notation that it's gone to Hulu. So...cancelled like Arrested Development, as in just moved to non-alphabet or whut?

Do any of you watch any of these shows? Y'all know what I watch, it's all on here, except for Olive Kitteridge and The Affair, which I snuck in for extra credit on the tready.

I have to say, it still feels very much like all the good shows are still only off-network. Like The Killing, True Detective, Orange Is The New Black, Arrested Development, if that's your bag (so not my bag) and so many more.

I feel bad for all the crew and actors that are out of a job, though, do you think network TV will ever stop structuring everything around commercials and make anything entertaining again?

Speaking of entertaining TV, Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones has been named Sexiest Woman Alive 2015. In case you don't recognize the name (because you're trapped under a large rock), she is the Dragon Missus:


I wish her well, I'm afraid she was awful in the Terminator reboot, but maybe it just wasn't her metier. No dragons.

  1. I tried to watch The Taste and it was awful. I can't stand whatsherbutt and her theatrics. I also tried to love The Mindy Project but could't get into it.

    1. I think Mindy Kaling is funny, but. .sitcom. Yeah

    2. I've never even heard of The Taste, so I'm not sure who whatserbutt is.

      Sorry for the late reply, was volunteering at preschool, which was WAAAY more fun until the headache kicked in

    3. That awful British chef with the bewbs. The one with the awful husband that choked her? Sorry, I guess I could google. On my phone. Lol

    4. Preschool + volunteer = headache

    5. Right. Whatsherbutt solved.

    6. I don't like to listen to her talk, so I can see hownit would be excruciating as a show; she's always trying to Marilyn and really, only Marilyn could do that

      Delete
    7. She would sob hysterically when one of her contestants were voted off and she'd lay all streteched out on a lounge while the men chefs sat. Ugh.

  2. Trying to decide whether to post about Lamar Odom. Hubs is very verbose on the topic

    1. He thinks Lamar could have been a Scottie Pippen and doesn't understand the drug use

    2. I'm reading now that Khloe is there fcuking taping with a camera crew

    3. Argh! Their show was the only K one I ever watched any of, and I don't think I saw much, but they seemed good together and I thought she was marginally better than that

      Delete
    4. I read that that is absolutely not true, that hospital sources say no way, they are not filming at all. Who knows.

      Delete
    5. I really hope that's the case. Good lord

      Delete
    6. I really don't think it's true though personally. From everyone I've read she's just devastated.

      Delete
    7. There was a realness to them as a couple, extremely short relationship or not. I really hope she is not there taping

      Delete
    8. I mean I think there's no way.

  3. Oh TTM, I meant to tell y'all that Maksim called Hope Solo a "sh*tty person", which I think is AWESOME! She is a lying liar that lies big fat lies. She wrote in her book that Maks abused her on DWTS, that he slapped her on the stomach so hard one time to get her in frame she had a hand print on her stomach all day. They actually showed the clip when that happened and he barely touched her. She had a crappy attitude on that show and everybody hated her. Also the fact that she claims he abused her physically but no one has ever in his 13 years on that show has claimed that, but SHE has charges against her for assaulting her family members is just HILARIOUS.

    1. *He called her that when asked in an interview recently. And he kept his mouth shut about her for three years too.

      Delete
    2. She just seems to have SO MANY anger issues, seems to just draw all that negativity to her, I'm not surprised

      Delete
    3. As for Maks, sometimes you gotta call a spade a spade

      Delete
    4. The only thing I know about Hope Solo is nekkid pics

      Delete
    5. I get her mixed up with Lolo Jones all the time

    1. I never did watch that one.

    2. I really liked it back in the day, it was kind of my gateway drug into reality TV, I watched Real Housewives around that time, I think. Although really, that was Flavor of Love, so nevermind that..

      Delete
    3. Now I did watch the first few seasons of Flavor of Love. Also Rock of Love!

    4. Now I don't know, but were they supposed to be alt versions of The Bachelor?

  5. Okay, reading a Ryan Murphy interview. What is going on with the Empire set? Re his experience with Glee:
    "I look at the Empire cast and everything that's going on with them, and I'm just like, 'Don't do it. Keep it together.'

    2. Fights? Jealousy over pay?

    3. Lee Daniels is a character. He lost a tonne of weight too, I hope all is well and that is happy healthy weight loss and not stress or illness

      Delete
    4. Just because it seemed so abrupt

      Delete
    5. Okay, first tidbit found: Bryshere Gray hit Terrence Howard over the head with a real bottle during a scene instead of a plastic one "on purpose" and Terrence punched him in the face. Gray is "bipolar" according to the site, Bossip.com

      Delete
    6. Apparently this actually was widely reported.

      Delete
    7. Okay, that's the wee Hakeem! TH prolly deserved it

      Delete
    8. I suspect this is a situation where there is no "good guy".

      Delete
    9. This is kinda fun! We're bringing the gossip here!

      Delete
    10. Okay second: Taraji and Terrence have final say over scripts and they wield their power. Taraji "hates Grace Gealy (Anika) and is jealous of her. Terrence hates Malik Yoba (Vernon) and Gabourey is pissed her screen time is so small!

      You're welcome!!!!!!

      Delete
    11. Woo hoo ty Reno! Well, Terrence and Taraji ARE the show, so...I do love Gabourey, though. I read her recap of an Empire episode, she's hilarious

      Delete
    12. That is a lot of hate. For the money they make, you would think you could suck it up and be decent to each other.

      Delete
    13. Yep. But with great money and power comes great egos!
