Bunheads has been canceled.
Some of you might be like, “Huh? What’s that?”
It was a fabulous show on ABC Family about ballet dancers and their awesome teacher. Even better, it was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino.
“Who is that?” you might be asking.
She’s the creator of Gilmore Girls, one of my favorite shows.
I liked Bunheads. Not as much as Gilmore Girls, but it had the same quirky lines and yes, actors from Gilmore Girls would pop up and make an appearance. They even had the “la la la” music! Some people will argue that it was trying too hard to be Gilmore Girls but I don’t agree, the show had its own focus.
I’m tired of shows I enjoy getting canned while reality nonsense like Honey Boo Boo remains. I’d like to hope people would prefer content than crap. Yes, I watch reality shows but I’d much prefer to get invested in characters and story lines. Networks give up on shows too easily these days. Do you know Full House had awful numbers the first season but as the show went on it got more and more popular? Had it aired today, it would have been canceled after the first year. We’d have never gotten to see Michelle grow up. The horror!
I’ve tweeted my outrage on Bunheads being canceled. If you enjoyed the show, please do the same. Social media has brought shows back before. (Drop Dead Diva, for example.) You can also go to their Facebook page here.
If you have no idea what Bunheads is, you can watch full episodes here.
It’s why I almost hesitate watching new shows in fear that they’ll be canceled these days. (I’m also upset that Smash was canceled.)
Oh, and someone also posted ways you can help save Bunheads here.
