Cancelled TV shows for 2014 include CBS’s “The Crazy Ones” and NBC’s “Revolution.” The complete list of ABC, NBC, FOX, and CBS 2014 cancelations proves once again that the ax can fall no matter how much TV advertisements call this or that show the “funniest comedy of the century.” Just one day after CBS executives announced that “The Crazy Ones” would be cut from its programs, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Robin Williams’ daughter on the comedy, said that “this breaks my heart,” reported Just Jared on May 12.

For the 37-year-old actress, having been part of a team alongside Robin Williams had been a “magical experience.” Unfortunately, the magic ended after only a few months. “The Crazy Ones” aired on Sept. 26, 2013, but on May 10, 2014, the official word came from the network that the show was not to return in the fall of 2014.

In all, the five major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CW) have cancelled a total of 24 TV shows for the Fall TV season. Fortunately for many viewers, many favorite ones remain.

In addition to “The Crazy Ones,” other shows that will not return on CBS include "Bad Teacher," "Friends with Better Lives," "Hostages," "How I Met Your Mother," "Intelligence," and "We Are Men." In case you missed the short run of the cyber-themed action-adventure television show “Intelligence,” it also appeared for only one season.

CBS shows that have been renewed include “2 Broke Girls,” “The Amazing Race,” ”Blue Bloods,” “The Big Bang Theory” (which has been renewed for three more years, “CSI,” “Criminal Minds,” “Elementary,” “The Good Wife,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “The Mentalist” (which has been renewed for 13 more episodes), “Mike & Molly,” “The Millers,” “Mom,” “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Survivor,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Undercover Boss,” and “Person of Interest.”

For those who are surprised that "Two and a Half Men" is continuing, CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler announced on Wednesday, May 14, that the comedy’s upcoming 12th season will be its last. The show will end next year. The network’s decision to bring an end to the longest running comedy came after the show drew only eight to nine million viewers per week during its 11th season.

For the fall season, CBS is going back to spinoffs of more reliable TV series. “CSI: Cyber” will star Patricia Arquette (“Medium”) as a cyber-psychologist crime solver. The NCIS new spinoff is “NCIS: New Orleans.”

NBC gave the ax to "Dracula," ''Community," ''Revolution," ''Growing Up Fisher," ''Believe," ''Crisis," ''Ironside," ''The Michael J. Fox Show," ''Sean Saves the World" and "Welcome to the Family."

ABC’s cancelled shows include "Mixology," The Neighbors," "Suburgatory," "Super Fun Night," and "Trophy Wife."

FOX tossed the shows "Almost Human," "Dads," "Enlisted," "Rake," and "Surviving Jack." CW's list of cancelled TV shows for 2014 included “The Carrie Diaries,” “Star Crossed,” and “The Tomorrow People.”

NBC, ABC, Fox, and CW renewed most of their shows for the 2014 TV season. Among some of the favorite renewals for viewers are “Law & Order: SVU,” “Bones,” and, of course “Castle.” According to Eonline, "Parenthood" will air its final season starting this fall. The Amy Poehler comedy "Parks and Recreation" will get its last run in a mid-season slot.
