The Ted Marshall Open

The Allison LaPlaca Open is a contest to see who can guess how many T.V. shows will be cancelled during the 2000-01 season. To be eligible, a show must:

20 points are awarded for each cancelled show, plus bonus points (between 1 and 10) as assigned by the contestant. Shows that are crossed out in red and have a marker have presumably been canceled. Shows that are in green bold and have a smiley face have received a full-season order, but still may be cancelled before next season. Purple text and an ambulance indicates the show was put on a hiatus. Blue text and a no symbol means the show never aired, making the entry ineligible. The large number indicates a player's score, while the smaller number in parentheses refers to the points lost by shows receiving a full-season order subtracted from the highest possible score (255), which indicates the player's highest possible point total. The tiebreaker is the rating of Super Bowl XXXVI, which was 40.4.

The Graveyard
Ally McBeal September 1997-20 May 2002: It's hard to lose a show that was a lightweight on so many levels.
American Embassy 18 March 2001-1 April 2002: Deported
Bob Patterson 26 September 2001-31 October 2001: According to Nielsen Research, its only viewer was a Mr. Art Vandelay
Citizen Baines 29 September 2001-10 November 2001: I guess adding the talking pig didn't help.
Danny 28 September 2001-5 October 2001: It was now 2001, and I blew my career on forgettable kiddie flicks and then I thought doing an update of Szysznyk would be a good idea
Dark Angel September 2000-October 2002: I don't know what I'll miss more, the robotic characters or the robotic acting.
Dharma and Greg September 1997-May 2002: Now Alan Rachins can concentrate on those Gateway commercials full time.
Education of Max Bickford September 2001-May 2002: Now that Dryefuss and Elfman are unemployed, could Kippendorf's Tribe II be far behind?
Emeril 25 September 2001-1 January 2002: The Iron Chef guys doing a sitcom would have been much better.
Family Guy January 1999-February 2002: Thus relieving our glut of Rhode Island based shows.
Felicity September 1998-12 March 2002: With one breath, with one flow, you're an ex-show, goodbye Felicity
Glory Days January 2002-March 2002: Apparently people didn't like that the lead character's friend was not a big baseball player back in high school.
Greg the Bunny March 2002-June 2002: I'll miss the puppets -- Greg, Count Blah, Sarah Silverman
Imagine That 8 January 2002-15 January 2002: I'm not the person you should be asking.
Inside Schwartz 27 September 2001-3 January 2002: Come and knock on my door, we've been waiting for you, this show really sucked so you've been thrown off the air too.
Maybe It's Me September 2001-May 2002: Yes, it was.
Men, Women and Dogs Well, one third of the title was right.
Once and Again September 1999-15 April 2002: What will Sela Ward do, besides the Maybelline commercials, and the Sprint commercials, and the...
Pasadena September 2001-November 2001: After Exit to Eden, this counts as a career rebound for Dana Delaney.
Philly September 2001-28 May 2002: Write in on the board in black, Kyle, it's dead.
Raising Dad September 2001-May 2002: I thought the whole reason Bob Saget wanted off Full House is because he didn't want to be typecast as a single father raising a teenaged daughter?
Roswell October 1999-14 May 2002: All unused Tabasco Sauce bottles may be sent to Noel Erinjeri, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Special Unit 2 April 2001-February 2002: Special Unit 2 has now been converted to CBS' name for sister network UPN.
That's Life October 2001-February 2002: It rolled up in a big ball and died.
The Ellen Show September 2001-January 2002: Ironically, the first sitcom about a failed dot-com worker fails within a year.
The Tick 8 November 2001-March 2002: The curse of Seinfeld is even striking semi-regulars. Guess that development deal with Estelle Harris is off.
The X-Files September 1993-May 2002: At least they're getting off before they have a show-killing baby. Oops, too late.
Thieves 28 September 2001-23 November 2001: Maybe John Stamos could hook back up with the Olsen twins -- this time for a loan.
Three Sisters January 2001-February 2002: I don't have a pithy comment, I didn't even know this show existed.
UC: Undercover 30 September 2001-23 March 2002: UC: Ultimately Cancelled
Undeclared Somewhere, someone will give Judd Apatow another show, while this comedy genius has to toil on barely-read websites.
What About Joan? 27 March 2001-9 October 2001: I got tommorrow's newspaper, the show I was in with the ditched fianceé of Kevin Kline was cancelled
Wolf Lake 19 September 2001-24 October 2001: I saw a wolf with a remote in his hand, walking through the channels on the telly. He was looking for a place called CBS, the place for those with pants up past their belly.
