Canceled Television Shows
Created by Tracie Hicks Using Network Logos.

It's that time of year again—the time we say goodbye to shows that we thought would last forever and a day. Some of our favorites had a good long run such as “Bones,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “Bates Motel.” Shows such as “The Blacklist: Redemption” and “Emerald City,” which came out earlier this year and got the ax before they could get a good start. Per TV Series Finale, there are 96 shows being canceled or ending. The following are some of the cancellations of the 2016-2017 season. The lineup posted isn't everything, as some of the series have yet to make their announcements at the time this article was written.

American Crime:” Canceled after three seasons.

The Catch:” Canceled after two seasons.

Conviction:” Canceled after one season.

Dr. Ken:” Canceled after two seasons.

Imaginary Mary:” Canceled after eight episodes. Well, the eighth episode airs Tuesday, May 16th.

Last Man Standing:” Canceled after six seasons.

Notorious:” Canceled after one season.

The Real O’Neals:” Canceled after two seasons.

Secrets & Lies:” Canceled after two seasons.

Time After Time:” Canceled after five episodes.

Doubt:” The show debuted in February 2017. It was canceled after two episodes.

The Odd Couple:” There were only 13 episodes ordered by CBS. Per Deadline, CBS will not be ordering any more. Glenn Gellar, Entertainment President of CBS assured Deadline that it wouldn't be the last of "The Odd Couple." According to Nellie Andreeva, he said: "It can definitely come back for season 4."

Pure Genius.” Per Yahoo TV, the show is likely to be canceled.

"Rush Hour:" Canceled after 13 episodes.

Training Day:” The show is moving to a new time slot on Saturday nights. Is this one step closer to cancellation?

Making History:” Canceled after one season.

Pitch:” Canceled after one season.

Rosewood:” Canceled after two seasons.

Sleepy Hollow:” After four seasons, we're saying goodbye to Ichabod Crane. The reason for the low ratings could be due to changes over the years in front and behind the camera. Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills had great chemistry, but the show went downhill when Nicole Beharie left.

Scream Queens:” As of May 5, 2017, I have yet to hear if it has been canceled or renewed for a third season. With Emma Roberts maybe leaving the show, a third season may not happen. There's a petition on Change for a third season, though.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.
