<I>Are You There, Chelsea?</i>: A Surprisingly Successful Buddy Comedy for the Weaker Sex

I'm not really sure who over at NBC thought it would be a wise decision to kick off Are You There, Chelsea? with Chelsea (Laura Prepon) getting arrested for a DUI.

While we would have gladly watched another season of A Gifted Man and our moms would have loved more of The Finder, we're having a hard time getting really upset about any of the axings this year (except for maybe Best Friends Forever, which had more potential than Whitney). In fact, there are certain shows we're downright excited to see disappear from the TV schedule. Here's the ones we'll miss the least:
