In Memoriam: TV.com Remembers the Shows We Lost in 2011 (VIDEO)

As is the case with any year, 2011 brought with it many beginnings and endings. In the world of television, this meant the start of some fantastic new series and the end of some old favorites. And so it's only fitting that we pay our respects to those shows we've loved and lost (as well as to a few we were happy to see go). Here's our video tribute to the shows we said goodbye to this year.

Fare thee well, old friends. You will be missed. Some of you more than others.

UPDATE: We'll all have to pour out a glass of white wine for Bored to Death and down a can of Rasta Monster for How to Make It in America; they were canceled after we finished this year's video. Oh, and add Hung to the list at the end.


Which recently deceased show will you miss the most in 2012?

V, Caprica, and L&O:LA: it seemed liked all three of these shows got off to a shaky start, but were just starting to get good. Human Target was good, escapist fun, kind of a throwback to 80's action shows. I also thought The Defenders was fun.

SMALLVILLE WAS THE BEST!!

I liked Outsourced and No Ordinary Family... too bad. And Traffic Light was pretty good too. V was kinda stupid but I watched it, probably more for nostalgia for the original show than for any other reason. Smallville wasn't cancelled, they planned to end it. Better With You was highlarious, Mad Love and Mr. Sunshine were enjoyable, Running Wilde had one of the funniest actors alive in it, and my daughter loved Sonny With a Chance. Too bad about Whitest Kids You Know, too.



As for the rest... didn't watch them.

WWE Superstars wasn't cancelled, just removed from American television. It still airs overseas and online.

Ilana Diamond has an error in the video when she points out GBTV. It was Glenn Beck (the Fox News Show) that Ended or was Canceled depending on your definition.



GBTV is an Internet Venture/Channel that is not connected with any TV Channel

Smallville, Lie to me are my 2 favorites. i am WAY too happy to be done with SGU. the actors are amazing, just as long as you keep garlic from Brian (LOL). But they should be showing their talents off in a much better light, elsewhere! So long Clark, Lois, Chloe, Oliver, and of course who can forget Krypto. So long lightman, you taught me so much about my husband, we are doomed for divorce.. .LOL i'm kidding. I look forward to merlin Season 5 and the continuation of my Supernatural and Sanctuary days. Thank you SPN for keeping my love of TV alive.

Although I hated the finale, I will always LOVE Smallville. It was a great show for a long time.

I will miss Stargate Universe, especially for the performances of Louis Ferreira & Robert Carlyle. I also have a deep fondness (for some God forsaken reason) for 'The Cape'. The show have such potential, with the straight out of Stan Lee's playbook origin to the funky villains (Vinnie Jones as Scales) and the mysterious history of the Cape's past. AARRGGHHH! What could of been!

SGU, Lie to Me, Law & Order Criminal Intent AND Los Angeles. Perhaps a poll on the shows people miss the most (greardless of when they were cancelled) and doing a video on their passing is the next task?

SGU, V and Smallville you will be missed... And I know I may well be alone here, but I thought The Cape and No Ordinary Family had potential. A season more and they might have been excellent.

Woah! Was that the crappiest looking clip TV. com could find for Smallville?

The quality was horrific! All the other shows got great looking, clear, crisp clips.

That thing looks like it was downloaded off of Youtube after some fan uploaded it.

Not cool.

V, Smallville, Flash Forward, but especially Smallville! I love watching the reruns.

V, Lie to Me, Stargate Universe (anything Stargate), and Two and a Half Men w/Charlie Sheen pre-meltdown. I never saw The Event, and may watch it online. Brothers and Sisters is one I wish I had watched. Rescue Me, Smallville and Friday Night Lights had terrific runs. I had no idea that Secret Diary of a Call Girl was still on, so I'm way behind there. Human Target was fun, but never quite kept a schedule it seemed, but had lots of potential. Someone pointed out The Unusuals, and I agree that is a loss. :(



I remain forever missing the tragic losses of Firefly and Jericho. >:-{ (Grrrr)



All that said, there are still many great shows out there, and some top-notch possible hits coming in 2012. :)

"V" - I loved the original mini series, I wanted to see what they were going to do with this one, I guess we'll never know

Smallville, entourage, Stargate, and sadly to say the cape i was just getting into it. Camelot because it was just getting good.

Ghost Whisperer, Knight Rider(although short lived), Medium, Smallville, Friday Night Lights, Just to name a few.

Smallville will sure be missed!!!



Its really a great show, i remember missing an important meeting just to watch an episode on tv. Also the moments when i argue with the entire cafeteria to change the channel so i wont miss an episode.

I wish there will be a sequel to it. I agree to most of those who commented that this should just be the beginning of the story, there is more into it..

Smallville !!!

Medium. Why was it only briefly mentioned in the final list after all those great episodes over many years? Mainly Stargate Universe as Smallville had run its course. Also L&O: Criminal Intent.
Reply

Universe didn't run it's course. It was canceled because MGM,SYFY & because of whiny morons that have the attention span of fly's just couldn't get into it because it was "To Complicated"....



If the people who never gave it a chance or the people who started blaming "Stargate Universe" actually gave it a chance and started watching it wouldn't be canceled and we would of had our SG1 and Atlantis movies already...

You misunderstood my reply, it was Smallville that had run its course.
Reply

Agreed. they never gave it a chance changing when it aired like 4-5 times loosing viewers each time. The way they went around canceling to as well, the cast finding out from fan through twitter come on MGM and SYFY learn to at least be respectful.

The ones I have watched for years and will miss greatly are Brothers & Sisters, The Closer, Memphis Beat, Human Target and Bored to Death.



The shows that only made it one season and I would have liked to see a bit more of are The Good Guys, Detroit 1-8-7, Terriers, the Defenders and Mr. Sunshine.



My old regulars that I think had probably run its course but I kept hoping would become better again are Big Love and Lie to me, so I guess those cancellations will save me time and disappointment.

The only one I will miss is Stargate Universe. It got canned just as it was getting better.

i agree, it didnt start very well but it was growing, and it got cancelled when it got interesting. Shame on them

Lie to Me will be greatly missed, I also liked The Nine Lives of Chloe King and Entourage but Lie to Me was one of my favorite shows. It was different than the shows out there and Tim Roth was great as Dr. Lightman.
