The Ted Marshall Open 2004-2005

The Alison LaPlaca Open is a contest to see who can guess how many T.V. shows will be cancelled during the 2004-2005 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 XXXIX (which was 41.1).

The Graveyard
American Dreams29 September 2002-30 March 2005: Just waiting in a few years for the show based on The $10,000 Pyramid, with Amanda Bynes playing Jo Anne Worley.
Center of the Universe27 October 2004-19 January 2005: See Father of the Pride.
Clubhouse26 September-8 November 2004: Placed on irrevocable waivers for the purposes of granting an unconditional release.
Complete Savages24 September 2004-24 June 2004: Fans dismayed when neither of the Savages were named Fred or Ben.
Committed4 January-15 March 2005: Apparently, not NBC.
Drew Carey's Green Screen7 October-4 November 2004: Improvise your own epitath here.
dr. vegas24 September-29 October 2005: dr. vegas, dr. vegas. dr. vegas, dr. vegas. Oh, dr. vegas. Help me dr. vegas!
Eight Simple Rules17 September 2002-15 April 2005: They should have looked to 60 Minutes for advice. They've been getting great ratings with corpses for years.
Everybody Loves Raymond13 September 1996-16 May 2005: If Ray Romano hadn't lost his job on Newsradio, he'd be hosting Fear Factor.
Father of the Pride31 August-28 December 2004: See Center of the Universe.
Grounded for Life10 January 2001-28 January 2005: Fun fact -- Donal Logue went to Harvard. Harvard.
Hawaii1 September-6 October 2004: Good. This frees up Ivan Sergei for 10.52, or 110.25.
Jack and Bobby12 September 2004-11 May 2005: As much as everybody thinks this was a left-wing show, think about it. The kid was going to be a Republican, and the loony character was a drug-addled lefty college professor.
JAG23 September 1995-29 April 2005: Get off the ledge, Craig. Everything will be OK.
Joan of Arcadia26 September 2003-22 April 2005: There is a God.
Jonny Zero14 January-4 March 2005: Again, FOX names a show that says the rating. If you want better ratings, revive 21 or totally go impossible and revive 240-Robert.
Judging Amy19 September 1999-3 May 2005: Who knew it was still on?
Kevin Hill29 September 2004-18 May 2005: We'll never see the terrible twos.
LAX13 September-17 November 2004: I was at LAX for 11 hours once and spent less than $20. NBC was at LAX for 10 hours and probably spent more than $20.
life as we know it7 October 2004-10 January 2005: Life is short.
Listen Up20 September-25 April 2005: What did we do wrong, Stat Boy? You went on the air, that's what you did wrong.
Medical Investigation10 September 2004-25 March 2005: The original title of the show was going to be The Cure. I would watch a show about brooding 80's rockers turned doctors.
Method and Red16 June-15 September 2004: This budding show was smoked out bluntly well before it could get to 420 episodes.
North Shore14 June 2004-13 Jan 2005: Back to the dog pound for Brooke Burns.
NYPD Blue21 September 1993-1 March 2005: They finally cancelled Dennis Franz' ass.
Quintuplets16 June 2004-12 January 2005: Andy, when 2009 rolls around, please consider partnering up again.
Revelations13 April-18 May 2005: Left behind.
Second Time Around20 September 2004-20 Jaunary 2005: No thanks, I'm full.
StarTrek: Enterprise26 September 2001-13 May 2005: In space, no one can hear you suck.
Studio722 July-2 September 2004: Help Me!
Summerland1 June 2004-5 July 2005: <EWF>It's like a kick in the crotch when I start to watch the WB's Summerland</EWF>.
The Bad Girls Guide24 May-5 July 2005: The guy wants talented actresses, so all untalented ones have to leave. You too, Jenny.
The Mountain22 September 2004-2 January 2005: Shaun Cassidy gave up Cold Case for this?
The Sketch Show13 March-3 April 2005: Mary Lynn Rajskub should probably stick to unintentional comedy.
Third Watch23 September 1999-29 April 2005: Actually, according to Nielsen it was more like Eleventh Watch
Tru Calling30 October 2003-21 April 2005: Between Eliza Dusku, Zach Galifanakis and Benjamin Benitez, it probably had the highest Scrabble&tm; scoring cast in history.
