#16 Criminal Minds (CBS)
The police procedural crime drama officially ended its 15-season run in February. CBS didn’t offer any explanation why it canceled the Jeff Davis-created series, but it’s worthy to note that Criminal Minds was no longer the ratings juggernaut it once was before it was canceled. Season 14 of the series only averaged a 0.76 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.67 million viewers — that’s down by 24% and 18%, respectively, compared to Season 13.
The show’s behind-the-scenes controversies didn’t also help in securing an additional season. For instance, prior to the show’s cancellation, its long-time director of photography, Greg St. Johns, was accused of abusive behavior and sexual harassment towards crew members.
