Back from the dead: fans choose!

Arrested DevelopmentA few weeks ago, AOL Television editors and TV Squad bloggers teamed up to name the shows they wished could come back from the dead.

Many of you wondered, "Where's Arrested Development? Freaks and Geeks?? Sports Night???" You took issue with some of the choices -- especially shows that had long runs, like The West Wing. For others, our picks were too edgy, like Keen Eddie.

So, we gave you the chance to strike back: We asked fans on both sites to nominate the shows you'd resurrect from the graveyard of television. Boy, was there a long list. We gathered together some of the best posts and here are the results.

Miss Match. Sweet and clever, with plenty of storyline potential. A show about a divorce lawyer who moonlights as a matchmaker? Brilliant! Casting Alicia Silverstone in the role? Even better. I was so disappointed to see this show get cancelled after only a handful of episodes.

Luckie Louie. Basically a modern day honey mooners. The damn show literally had better ratings than "Sex in the City"s first season and HBO pulled it because terrible critics like Linda Stasi thought it was ugly. Sorry every show isn't Friends , where everyone lives in an insanely expensive apartment while working as a secretary in NYC. Bring it back HBO. You let the Sopranos hobble along for 7 years, with continuously dropping ratings , give Louie at least one more shot, Frrrrrunkis!!

I...I feel like I'm going insane... how can a post about cancelled tv shows NOT mention Firefly? I'm... so confused... not even an honorable mention? And Alf? Really? Wow. Amazing.
