The Best TV Shows That Ended in 2012

List Criteria: A list of TV shows that will end or have already ended in 2012

This is a list of the TV shows that are ending or have ended in 2012, as voted on by experts and fans alike.

While 2012 hasn't been the bloodbath that 2011 have been with regards to television shows -- remember 'The Playboy Club'? -- there still were a considerable number of shows that saw the light at the end of the tunnel and went for it. Some TV shows ended their runs voluntarily while others went whimpering to the other side. Some cancelled fall 2012 TV shows now include NBC's 'Animal Practice', MTV's 'Jersey Shore' and Showtime's 'Weeds'. They likely won't be the only TV programs to get the axe, however. Shows cost big money. If they don't deliver with ratings quickly, they're gone. It's not exactly fair sometimes, but that's just how it goes. This is a list of all the new 2012 TV shows cancelled so far.

Expect this list of cancelled TV shows in 2012 to be updated. Fox and NBC aren't the only networks that's yanking these shows almost as soon as they start. (When was the last time anyone saw 'The Mob Doctor' on the schedule?) Several new and old programs are already said to be on 'death watch' just a few weeks into this season. Among them: CBS' 'Partners' and ABC's 'Last Resort'. If you're watching these shows, just know there's a very real chance that unless ratings begin to go up, up, up (fast), you might be disappointed if/when they get canned.

And let's not forget that by Spring 2013, shows like 'The Office', 'Fringe' and the talk show 'Anderson' -- which was just announced this week -- will cease to exist. New episodes, at least.

Please rank the canceled 2012 shows from best to worst. And if you don't see your favorite dead TV show, feel free to add it to the list so that others could walk down memory lane with you.
