Are you KIDDING me?!

I cannot believe this! Check out the list for yourself but here's some of the cancelled shows I cannot believe are being shut down!

Cancelled/Not returning:
Eli Stone - I thought this was an awesome show - I can honestly say that I saw the cancellation coming, but that doesn't mean I like it!
Privileged - SO loves this show! I mean... even McStudly got into it with me. It was so what I needed and I love Joanna Garcia.
Pushing Daisies - What?! There never has been and unfortunately probably never will be another show quite like it. You could TRY to re-work the plot and make another, but it'll never be like the story-telling and addicting show that it is. ...and I HAVE to know what happens with them!!!
Samantha Who? - Totally funny. Christina Applegate is a hoot and the characters are so good together. Not to mention I just laugh throughout the majority of it!
Kings - Seriously?! For real?! Come ON people! It was only beginning. They hadn't even gotten to the GOOD stuff, yet. I bet this show would do WONDERS if they'd just give it one more season.
Worst Week - I'm SO MAD! They JUST had the baby in the last episode. So much more could go wrong for these people... why can't you just let us enjoy their realistically clumsy lives in a world where everything isn't peachy and predictable? I like the break from drama drama see-it-coming-from-a-mile-away-drama.

SO Glad they're Safe:
Bones - I. Have. to. Know. What. Happens. NEXT!! That season finale KILLED me!!
Big Bang Theory - Just a good light laugh, and you don't have to worry if you miss an episode...
Castle - I really like this new show. Even though it's way unrealistic, the characters have good chemistry and it'll be interesting to see how the story develops even more.
Chuck - One word: Addicted. I am TOTALLY addicted... especially now the Chuck knows kung-fu. ha ha... Thank you Scott Bakula! And what's going to happen... Morgan can't leave for Hawaii!!
Criminal Minds - Just love this show. The stories. The characters. Everything... just so well made. Not to MENTION that Hodge might have just gotten shot in the HEAD in this seasons' finale! WHAAA?!
How I Met Your Mother - Umm... hello? We still don't know who their mother is? Of COURSE they couldn't end it, yet... but my prediction was that somehow it would lead into the "Surviving Suburbia" show. I don't know - it was just a thought.
NCIS - Now that Ziva is gone (hopefully for good) this show can get back to being awesome! DiNozzo has to be my fave... next to Gibbs, of course. ;-)
The Office - Need I say more?
Rules of Engagement - David Spade is a hoot... most of the time... and these characters are just a lot of fun.
So You Think You can Dance - I'm so jealous of how good these people are and the choreography is amazing. EVERY season it makes me want to take dance lesson. EVERY season! Maybe one day I will...

So anywho, that's where we are. It's bittersweet, really. Hopefully they can change their minds about some of the cancelling they've done. And looking at the shows they kept instead? It looks like it's going to be a LONG while until they come up with some good stuff again. 30 Rock? Really?

Good Lord help us...

So, go take a look at this list and come let us know - what shows were you shocked to find out were being cancelled? Resigned? Any of the above?

So I hulued the finale of Bones last night. And ummm... yeah. Kinda confused. I loved seeing them together but I'm curious to see how its going to work into next season. I kinda like it when the season finale ties in with the season, this one just confused me.
