One of the most underrated shows in recent history, Day Break, was not even allowed to finish its first full season on air. Instead halfway through it was demoted to online only and the viewers were left hanging. I did sit down and watch the finally 7 episodes online but I doubt I could summarize them for you. There were still more twists and turns and at the end we were given some answers but left hanging on some others.
Since I can’t do a halfass job summarizing it for you, I will leave that up to IGN and this article I found. It does the best job telling you what happens with ABC’s Daybreak. They also agree with me that this show was highly underrated. Oh Well, thanks Taye Diggs

Scott posted the story a week ago about DayBreak on ABC being canceled and let me tell you I am not happy. I didn’t particular love Daybreak but it was interesting and I at least wanted to see what happened or how it was all happening. Instead we get left off with the guy getting buried by the dump truck and then one of the girls, who I’m not sure if that is Hopper’s sister or some other tramp. I was looking forward to watching next week’s episode after the preview but now that it is no longer on the air I am gonna be left hanging.
I know they have to at least have a few more episodes shot and ready to be aired why not at least throw them up online so idiots like me can finish watching the show. It doesn’t take anything on their part and it would make me and the other 10 people who watch the show happy.
So what’s the hold up?
Day Break, starring Taye Diggs, was ABC’s attempt at filling a time slot while Lost was on break filming new episodes during the Lost Season 3 break. I personally liked the show and thought it was alot like Lost in that you never know exactly whats going on. Apparently only me and a handful of others did enjoy the show though, because ABC has decided to pull the show from the line up. Instead of showing something semi-good, they decided the George Lopez Show would be a better replacement to run until their new shows “Knights of Prosperity” and “In Case of Emergency” debut on January 3rd. It would have been nice to at least find out what the plot of the story was on Day Break before pulling it. Now we may never know if the ground hog see’s his shadow or not, and summer will never come..thanks alot ABC.
In other ABC cancellation news, William Shatner’s game show “Show Me the Money” has been pulled. I never watched this show but the commerical for it made me laugh every time with their catch phrases such as “Shat-tastic”, “Shaterrific”, and other clever references to Mr. Shatner and past tenses of Poo.
