<i>Missing</i>: Lifetime Wants Their Show Back

ABC's Ashley Judd-starring Missing is essentially a Lifetime show. It's got all of the elements right there in front of us: A widowed retired CIA agent-turned-devoted-mother-and-florist Becca Winstone (Judd) -- who we meet at the tail end of her patented Strong Woman Jog -- travels to Europe after her son (Nick Eversman) mysteriously disappears while on a summer internship in Italy, and she'll stop at nothing to get him back. Why this isn't currently airing alongside Project Runway or Dance Moms, I'll never know.

TWoP 10: In Memoriam – What We'll Miss from Cancelled Shows

A ton of shows were cancelled this season, many of which deserved to go. But although we may not have shed tears over the programs themselves, there's quite a few specific elements that we're going to miss.

The Cancelled 2011-12 TV Shows We'll Miss the Least

We're still shocked that Whitney got renewed, but most of the cancellations this season made sense. While we would have gladly watched another season of A Gifted Man and our moms would have loved more of The Finder, we're having a hard time getting really upset about any of the axings this year (except for maybe Best Friends Forever, which had more potential than Whitney). In fact, there are certain shows we're downright excited to see disappear from the TV schedule. Here's the ones we'll miss the least:

TWoP 10: Characters Whose Absence Would Instantly Improve Their Shows

Sometimes less is more and there's addition by subtraction. At least, in the case of some of our favorite shows, that is definitely true. We've identified TV's weakest links this season and have determined that their removal would guarantee an immediate uptick in the entertainment level of their respective shows. Here are the major characters that most need to go, for everyone's sake:

ABC's 2011 Upfront Presentation: Quantity, Yes, But Quality? Not So Much

Instead of leading off with Jimmy Kimmel to get us warmed up and excited about these new shows, ABC's upfront presentation jumped right in, so Jimmy didn't come out to make the obligatory gay/British jokes about his new boss Paul Lee until halfway through the event. Actually, thirty minutes in was perfect timing for him because that was about when I become fairly horrified with the new crop of shows. But even Kimmel seemed off his game, making easy jokes about CBS ("More people die watching CBS than any other network") and NBC ("they'll be selling their ads on Groupon this year") and Fox's X-Factor ("It's like American Idol meets a mirror"). He did get in some decent cracks about the upfronts in general: "Remember those shows that we were so excited about last fall? We cancelled all of them... and yet here you are again. We think you might have a gambling problem." Not unfunny, but he was better in previous years. As for the network's gobs and gobs of new shows? They've been better in years past, too. There wasn't a single one that blew me away or cracked me up the way that Lost or Modern Family had done at first glance.
