NCIS: Los Angeles

New Girl

Newlyweds

Permanent Hiatus

Take a C-list Britney and her D-list husband and follow them around with cameras during their first year of wedded bliss. Sounds like a desperate move by MTV to recapture the faded Osbournes glory — and by Jessica Simpson to somehow revive her career once the world got to see what an empty-head she was. And somehow, it worked. The show rocketed past Ozzy and crew in terms of ratings, and Jessica Simpson’s languishing solo album somehow shot up the charts and landed her a sitcom. Even hubby Nick Lachey Hoovered up some of the fame residue by both tagging along with Jessica on SNL and onto their own ABC Variety show — and then somehow landing on a comedy pilot. But through it all, TWoP said, “Eh.”

Night Stalker

Permanent Hiatus

This remake of another show with the same name, about a reporter searching for answers to his wife’s murder, was too inferior to even snark on, as proved by our incredible lack of interest. Even the prettiness of Stuart Townsend and Gabrielle Union wasn’t enough to keep it on the roster for more than one episode. Better luck next time, Stu.

Nikita

Cherchez la femme ailleurs.

No Ordinary Family

Permanent Hiatus

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby did this better 50 years ago.

Now and Again

Permanent Hiatus

Okay, this one was our bad. Alex Richmond wrote the hell out of her recaps, but the Television Without Pity readership just couldn’t bring itself to care. Before the show had broadcast its season finale, Now and Again was yanked from the site.

Numb3rs

Permanent Hiatus

Just didn’t add up. (D’oh.)

Nurse Jackie

Permanent Hiatus

“Now the drugs don’t work / They just make you worse / But I know I’ll see your face again…”

NYC Prep

Permanent Hiatus

XOXO.

NYPD Blue

Permanent Hiatus

The show’s got grit, as every television journalist in America has said ad nauseam. But maybe we came along too late — in season seven — for the recaps to light a fire under anyone’s (naked) ass. Or, maybe the show just really started sucking hard — during season eight, when David Milch left, and Stephen Bochco came in to open his Pandora’s Box of Gritty Clichés — and people stopped caring. People including, but not limited to, Alex Richmond.
