Top Ten (Canceled) TV Shows

We don't watch a whole heckuva lot of TV around here.  One of the reasons is because when we like a show, it gets canceled.  It's quite annoying.  I'd like to pay homage to some of my favorite TV shows, in no particular order, that are no longer gracing the small screen.

Moonlight - two words: Alex O'Loughlin
You can keep your Hawaii Five-0 (although I have been known to watch it on mute).  I want the gorgeous & emotionally tortured vampire, please.

Dark Shadows - Barnabas is another tortured undead soul that should still be on air (at least in more reruns!).  I was enthralled by this show when I was little.  It creeped me out quite a bit, but I liked it...if an episode happens to be playing when I'm channel surfing, I'm on it like white on rice.  Maybe this is why I was so drawn to Moonlight.

Angel - Okay, yeah, I'm noticing a theme already. No, I have not seen any of the Twilight movies.  If Rob Pattinson looked like David Boreanz, I would have been there at midnight with all of the screaming teenagers.

The Greatest American Hero - Who could it be?  Believe it or not, it's just me!  Best. Theme Song. Ever.

Wonder Woman - C'mon.  A brunette Amazon that kicks Nazi tail?  What's not to love? (especially for a lanky, dorky brunette named Dana)

Boston Public - This is really for Chris.  He loved this show.  I enjoyed it, too.  Smell that shoe.

Pushing Daisies - This show was so freaking cute & dark at the same time.  I loved it.  It introduced me to Kristin Chenowith (who needs a sammich based on how she looks on SYTYCD).  I also knew from the beginning that it wouldn't last. The humor in it was too dark to appeal to the masses and the whole storyline was really quite quirky & strange in an Edward Scissorhands kind of way.  I was sad to say goodbye to The Pie Hole.

The New Adventures of Old Christine - This show was so inappropriate in so many ways.  It was hilarious.  Obviously, not everyone agreed.

The "real" "not suitable for kids" Sesame Street - I'm sorry Elmo & Abby annoy the crap out of me. I won't let Klaw watch the "new" Sesame Street.  I can't stand it.  Why can't the clips be slower and less CrAzY?  Here's a little Cab Calloway action:

Guiding Light -  CBS can bite my butt for cancelling one of my stories (two if you count As the World Turns).  That is all.

I purposely left out Arrested Development.  I think most people agree that it is too obvious a choice.

This post was inspired by Mama Kat's Writing Prompt:
1.) A list of 10 old TV shows you’d like to make a comeback.

*as of 8:15am EST, the video clips are not loading. I am trying to figure it out. Thanks!
