22 Cancellations That Cut Deep

13. Terriers

Terriers
I get the terrible ratings. I get the confusing title. But few shows have done as impressive a job in slowly building drama and storylines to such a tense crescendo. And that's before we even get to the dynamic between Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James. Outstanding series all around. -- Matt Richenthal

14. Journeyman

Journeyman
Journeyman was one of the unfortunate victims of the 2007 Writers Strike, and only 13 episodes were ever produced. Despite suffering from low ratings, it had an intriguing time travel premise and a good cast, including Reed Diamond (as the titular time traveler's skeptical detective brother) and Moon Bloodgood (as the main character's fellow time-traveling ex-fiancee). -- Kathleen Weidel

15. Guiding Light

Guiding Light
Thinking outside the box, my grandmother, my mother watched and then I all watched Guiding Light. Granted, it was sporadic through my adult years, but I graduated from high school with some the key characters who remained on the series until it ended. I fell for John Wesley Shipp as Kelly in the 80s and he's now on The Flash. I watched Kevin Bacon, Allison Janney, Taye Diggs, Matt Bomer and Frank Grillo on GL, but I really miss the core families and the sense of loyalty and friendship their sagas inspired over 72 years and more than 15,700 episodes. Long live Reva and Josh, Beth and Phillip, the Spauldings, the Bauers, the Lewises, the Marlers, the Coopers and the Reardons and all the others who went down with the ship. I think about them all far too often to admit. RIP -- Carissa Pavlica

16. Suburgatory

Suburgatory
I'm still not over Suburgatory ending. There were some top notch comedians on that show, including Cheryl Hines, Chris Parnell, Ana Gasteyer and Alan Tudyk. That's comedy gold right there! After 3 seasons, I was really excited to see where the show would go with the girls getting older and Lisa and Malik married. There were so many things that went unanswered at the end and it still makes me sad to think I can't swoon over the body, Ryan Shay, anymore. RIP Suburgatory, you will be forever missed by me! -- Whitney Evans

17. Longmire

Longmire
Longmire's fans were shocked when A&E pulled the plug on this show despite its popularity. The third (and final) season was arguably the best of the series and ended with a surprising cliffhanger. The gorgeous landscapes as well as the cast's undeniable chemistry will surely be missed. Here's hoping another network snaps up this gem! -- Stacy Glanzman ... UPDATE: Netflix has picked up the series for Season 4!!

18. The Finder

The Finder
A fun, quirky spin-off to Bones, The Finder is a show that should have lasted longer than one season. Its cast was dynamic, and its concept was unique. Geoff Stultz played Walter, an odd war veteran with an uncanny ability for finding almost anything. He solved crimes, helped find prized possessions, and got himself in plenty of trouble. The worst part is that the season finale ended with a pretty serious cliffhanger as Walter was sent to jail. The show began as an episode of Bones, and also featured crossover episodes with visits from Jack Hodgins and Lance Sweets (RIP). -- Ashley Bissette Sumerel
