Here’s a list that, thankfully, doesn’t include Community or Parks And Recreation (or Happy Endings or Fringe or any other cultishly adored series that didn’t have its bubble burst before upfronts). Who Won TV? devotes its season finale to remembering shows we lost during the 2011-12 season. Goodnight, sweet Work It; and flights of cross-dressing angels sing thee to thy rest.
