List of TV Shows Cancelled in 2013 = Just About Everything!


It’s been a down year for new TV shows, and this past Friday saw the final nail placed in the coffin of many of the failing shows. The networks announced most of their final decisions on cancellations at the end of the day on May 10th, and few shows were spared.

In all, 25 new scripted dramas and comedies premiered on network TV this season, with only 8 surviving to make it to season two. Of the shows that did survive, it’s hard to name any as a standout success.

Ocean Media has been tracking the progress for each show this season on Facebook, and the correlation between a show doing well on the social media platform, and in the ratings was pretty strong. The top four shows in Facebook Likes all made it to season two, with the other four spread throughout the list. Those top four shows on Facebook are also the four that could be most nearly labeled as “breakout” hits.
