Shows That Should Have Never Been Canceled

The Top Ten

1 The Lone Gunmen

Drake and josh should have never been cancelled. I don't really care for any shows that are in the top 10. Drake ^^ Josh is the best show EVER.

2 Family Guy Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

I know they brought it back bt it shouldn't have been canceled in the first place, in fact it was even better before

This show was for limited ages because it had adult content on it, which is inappropriate.

Deserves to get cancelled. Piece of crap. - 445956

Best animated show ever! Clever as it gets!

Should have stayed cancelled - Fireboy

3 Firefly

This is one of my all time favorite TV shows, but it was cut because of weird showing times. Loved the movie - Hannibalbarka

Well, duh. Firefly was a great show, extremely well-written, and such an original concept wrapped in classic ideas. It didn't even get a whole season for idiotic reasons.

They Never even gave it a chance! - Freak_Show1

People really need to be fired over this move.

4 Freaks and Geeks Freaks and Geeks Freaks and Geeks is an American teen comedy-drama television series, created by Paul Feig, with Judd Apatow as executive producer, that aired on NBC during the 1999–2000 television season.

Is this even a question? This show I should ONE OF THE best of all time. The kids seemed real. Today, the child actors don't convince you they're really their character. It launched many of its actors into fame. All in all, one of the greatest shows ever and never deserved to be cancelled.

One of the most incredible depictions of teenage life in the 80s. What an all star cast, too. James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segel, Busy Phillips, John Daly. SUCH A GOOD SHOW.

Way better than Family guy, which should be canceled; AGAIN. - gamefreak198

I don't give a damn bout meh reputation! Livin in the past... New generation.

5 Futurama Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

No! They Finally did it they canceled the show! Why! Why! How could this happen. Na I'm Just kidding they brought it back. or did they ha ha

Oh no you would be whining if this was up to season 20 calling it crap. You bash the Simpsons all the time, If the Simpsons was cancelled in Season 8 people would complain FACT SO SHUT UP.

So long for the Squeaky-voiced Teen on The Simpsons trying to commit suicide because it was cancelled early - jrodz

It was epic I can't believe the Simpsons has been going for 29 years and Futurama only went for 14 years it's unfair. - PatrickStar3

6 Arrested Development Arrested Development Arrested Development is an American television sitcom created by Mitchell Hurwitz, which originally aired on Fox for three seasons from November 2, 2003, to February 10, 2006. A fourth season of 15 episodes was released on Netflix on May 26, 2013. The show follows the fictitious Bluth family, a formerly more.

It's the funniest show I have ever seen. I can't believe they cancelled it! It had great jokes, great plots, and great people. It just shows how bad America's sense of humor is.

Greatest show of all time. America was to dumb for it though.

This show was absolutely genius, I would call it a modern intelligent version of Seinfeld

this was a good show good actors and actresses.

8 George Lopez George Lopez

george lopez is the show ever. WHAPA! - pokemonsuck8

9 Pushing Daisies

One of the best shows of all-time. It is a shame that the writers strike happened before it could get on it's feet.

This and Firefly are my two favourite shows and it is so unbelievably frustrating that they got cut short.

10 Go On

The Contenders

11 My So-Called Life My So-Called Life
12 Veronica Mars

Never Shoulda be canceled!!

13 Married With Children Married With Children Married... with Children is an American television live-action sitcom that aired on Fox, created by Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt. Originally broadcast from April 5, 1987 to June 9, 1997, it is the longest-lasting live-action sitcom on Fox, and the first to be broadcast in the network's primetime more.
14 Undeclared
15 Star Trek

Maybe the third season was more laughable than ever with some cheesy episodes, but I am sure Roddenberry and his writing staff could have continued the "five-year mission" instead of the "three-year" one!

Bottom line, Star Trek, for the '60s, was way ahead of its time.

And what's that old joke? "The red shirts die first! " - CrazyElephant

OK. Maybe I am a Trekkie, but you would be too after watching a couple of episodes! - thedude

17 Ugly Betty Ugly Betty

19 Mr. Meaty Mr. Meaty Mr. Meaty is a Canadian-American television series created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley. The show centers on two lazy teenage boys named Josh Redgrove and Parker Dinkleman, who work at a fast food restaurant.

Lol. This deserved to be cancelled.

Mr. Meaty is one of the best shows to ever air on Television. I

20 Space: Above and Beyond

It had a good story line that could have been extended in all directions.

This show's storyline could have been ran for atleast 7 to 10 seasons. - RdrTech
