Top 5: Shows That Weren’t Cancelled, But Need To Be

Mammen_axe

By now we all know which shows have survived.  All five networks have released their schedules for the upcoming 2014-2015 TV seasons and while there were unjust cancellations (Community, Almost Human) and just renewals (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parenthood, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD), there’s also a group of shows that were renewed that shouldn’t have been.

1. Glee (FOX)
glee-glee-logoThe phenomenon ran its course three years ago and it ruined Jane Lynch.  Stop it.  Just put it down, and walk away.

2. American Idol (FOX)American-Idol-LogoName the last winner of American Idol you remember by name.  Carrie Underwood?  Yep, point made.

3. CSI (CBS)0225-csi-cast-logo-cbs-1Most people don’t even know this is still even on (though to be fair, my demographic is under 65), let alone that TED DANSON is running this group.  I get that CBS think it can’t do any wrong, but endlessly franchising NCIS and keeping CSI around  four or five seaons too long instead of developing new dramas is what will eventually bring the network out of the top spot.

4. Grey’s Anatomy (ABC)

What is there left to say with this show?  The best characters have left the show.  It should have ended this year with Sandra Oh leaving Seattle.  Without her, this show is going to go even further off the rails than Scandal did this season (don’t think it didn’t almost make this list).

5. The Simpsons (FOX)the-simpsons-movie-new-wallpaper-393911301
I get it.  26 years is a long time.  The Simpsons is an American institution.  It also hasn’t been consistently funny in about 12 years.  It’s painful to watch.  It’s time to put it to pasture.

Honorobale Mentions: Law & Order SVU (NBC), Bones (FOX), The New Girl (FOX), Hell’s Kitchen (FOX) and Scandal (ABC).

HALO 5: Guardians Coming to XBOX One in 2015!

HALO 5

Here’s an announcement that Xbox fans have been waiting for since E3’s teaser trailer last year: Halo 5 (HALO 5: Guardians) will hit shelves fall 2015 around the same time the Steven Spielberg HALO TV show debuts on Xbox Live.  Look for more details on both at E3 in just a few weeks as the rest of the schedule for this year’s games falls into place.  This E3 will be as much about software as last year’s was about hardware.  We have the new systems.  Now how about the games?  There’s going to be a whole lot of announcements like this and gamers are the winners.  I thought Halo 4 was the best installment in the series, and I can’t wait for this.
