After a stellar year full of exceptional TV shows, we almost forgot that we might have to say goodbye to a few of them in 2018. Now that we've reached May, networks have already "prestige" shows like One Mississippi, Damnation, and Lady Dynamite the ax. So far Amazon and Netflix are the biggest offenders, but series on networks like NBC, The CW, and ABC aren't safe, either. Pour one out for the shows that have taken their last TV gasp ahead.
