Cancelled or Not

Why is everyone so afraid of the C-word all of a sudden?

In what has become something of an exploding trend, the major TV networks are going out of their way to avoid slapping even the most struggling series with a cancellation label. As a result, viewers are given false hope that a show that’s essentially DOA has a shot at being renewed. Conversely, shows that are genuinely on the bubble are, in some cases, presumed dead.

Well, lucky for you, we’re not afraid to call a spade a spade (or a cancelled show a cancelled show). Of the 10 seres featured in the gallery below — click here for direct access — more than half have been quietly, stealthily, unofficially cancelled. And the others? There’s still hope!
