We have only just begun the season’s cancellations and if this a sign of things to come, I am not going to be in good shape. While Ben and Kate has not been officially cancelled, production has been halted and much like my face when I heard this news, it is not looking good.
Assuming this happens, I will never understand how this show didn’t make it. It’s the kind of comedy that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy after you watch it while still remaining funny and sharp. The show seemed to be settling into the characters with Kate finding her dorky awkwardness, Ben finding his ambition, Tommy getting over Kate (for now), and B.J. establishing her general awesomeness.
I will always struggle with smart, lovely shows getting cancelled while networks can still find room for your Last Man Standings and Whitneys. How does this happen?! How do we LET this happen?! And I’m just going to say it: Ben and Kate is a better show than The Mindy Project. That’s just how I feel. I still enjoy watching Mindy, but Ben and Kate had more to love, and now everything I loved is being taken from me.
What?! I don’t get too invested in TV, but my life is over.
