Shows that died WAY before their time
In search of information about the absolute, total, non-return of Love Monkey, I came across an interesting article in, of all places, The Calgary Sun. The article, written by Kevin Williamson, counts down the top 25 best series that were canceled before their time.
Some of the entries on the list are those that many others (including those fabulous writers who post on this fantastic site) have mentioned as dying premature deaths. For example, the recently departed Arrested Development falls in at number two on the list. Aaron Sorkin's Sports Night appears at the number 12 spot.
Some shows listed are surprises. At number one on the list is Twin Peaks, which many reviewers thought had gone past its initial premise as the show came to an end. Cupid, which starred Jeremy Piven (and which I barely remember) is number 18.
What really shocks me is that Cop Rock is not listed anywhere on this list. Now the cancellation of THAT show was an injustice. Or, was the airing of the show an injustice? I can't remember.
