A television series may win the hearts of many fans, but when ratings drop or when television stations find it necessary to end the program, it can leave some viewers devastated. Television shows have been around since the 1930’s and are expected to entertain the audience. However, if a television show lacks interest, its programming company can give it the boot. In some circumstances, some viewers feel a connection toward a certain character and when the show is cancelled, it creates this feeling of loss.
