So what are you sad to see go?  I really liked Growing Up Fisher, The Carrie Diaries, Trophy Wife, Bad Teacher, and The Crazy Ones.  I really thought some of these had such potential but alas, the broadcast industry is harsh.  The good news is that there are plenty of new shows to look forward to! What are your thoughts?
