List Rules Vote up the shows that did not deserve their cancellation between January and December of 2013.

This list of 2013's canceled shows is expected to grow as the months drag on and networks decide, for whatever reason, that it's time to pull the plug on TV shows that just aren't making the grade. Why are certain shows slated for cancellation? That's easy: It's all about the ratings. If a show's ratings aren't high enough, the network simply can't justify keeping it on the air. Sometimes a canceled show will get a reprieve, but that's not the norm. This list includes all TV shows canceled in 2013. Be sure to vote up the shows you liked the most, and vote down those that you think absolutely deserved to get pulled.

FOX was the first major network to start yanking TV shows in 2013. In January, ABC and FOX decided to pull two sitcoms off the air. Wait, are they canceled, or not? Probably. It's just semantics, really. The two shows that got yanked were the Krysten Ritter ABC comedy 'Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23.' and the new FOX comedy 'Ben and Kate.'

This list will, sadly, be updated as more TV shows are pulled off the air. Which ones do you think are at most risk? Remember, it's about ratings, so shows like CBS' 'Vegas,' FOX's 'The Mindy Project' and ABC's 'Malibu Country' might all be on the chopping block before the year is over. New shows are also always iffy, so check out this list of the best new shows of 2013: See one that you hated? Chances are, you aren't alone. Try hard not to get too attached to the new shows you do like, because it sucks when they get canceled (see: this list of 2012's canceled shows as a prime example).
