    Community just got cancelled, and it is one of my favorite shows of all time (along with scrubs and early season simpsons).

    any way here is a list of the cancelled tv shows

    Always heard good things about Community, just never got a chance to watch it.

    On another note, holy crap that's a lot of shows that have been cancelled.

    I think Community got more praise than it deserved, at least the past couple years. It was a good show for the first couple seasons, but the previous season and to a much larger extent this past season were much less watchable.

    Comedy wise, I'm more torn up about The Crazy Ones being canceled. Loved the show and sad that I won't get a weekly dose of Robin Williams any more.

    Almost Human being canceled is just Fox doing their Fox thing. They cancel the good shows and keep the trash. Which is why I have high hopes for Gotham and only expect it to get one season.

    The other shows I watched that won't be returning; How I Met Your Mother, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Psych, Fantasy Factory, Warehouse 13. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was originally intended to be a mid/between-season filler for Once Upon a Time and for some reason got pushed into an actual series. The show was not good. HIMYM, Psych, Fantasy Factory and Warehouse 13 were all known to be their last seasons, and in the cases of HIMYM, Psych and Warehouse 13 are able to go out knowing this in their finales.

    I have never watched Community, so I can't say anything about that, other than I keep hearing good things.

    Sad (slightly) to see Boondocks get the axe, great show but it seems like any animated show that says something of substance has a turbulent course.

    Just started watching Psych, decent show with some cool retro throw backs to my generation.

    I am actually surprised Dads made it 18 episodes. I loved the show but it had so many touchy subjects in it.

    @Dan Oravasaari Psych is the greatest TV show alive.

    The new season of The Boondocks is pretty shitty, even as a huge fan of the series I can barely muster enough interest to make it through each new episode. Might as well give it the ax now since the creator is no longer involved

    Bummer to see Almost Human get the ax that early. I was interested, but it seems a lot of Abrams projects are getting the one season treatment lately. He just can't make LOST again...

    That sucks to hear, I liked the older seasons but haven't had the time to try the new one yet.

    Yeah, I liked the idea for Almost Human, but it seemed like it was far to shallow for what it could have been. The GF as the villain thing didn't really play into the story all that much, and left it as a throwaway weekly badguy cop drama.
