Like all TV fans, I’ve been known to complain when a show I like gets canceled. I’ve been doing less complaining in recent years, partly because I realized something that is never mentioned by mourning fans: Every time a show ends, another begins, and sometimes the replacement becomes our new favorite show. If you think about it, absolutely every show that’s on TV now (including your favorites) exists because its forerunners were canceled.
Here’s an honor that no one wants to get and that I hate to bestow: The best show that was canceled too soon. This year’s winner is “Privileged.”
