Seeing Ballers up here (which I have never watched) just reminded me about the cancellation of Survivor's Remorse after season 4.  I was so sad to hear about this on Sunday, that show had so much potential.

It's terrible when that happens Timone - when you love a show so much and see it's true genius and then it gets ripped away.  

What's also terrible is Married By Mom and Dad... having a parent choose my partner would be a living hell! I can't believe anyone actually does it from choice.

I wouldn't mind the 45-room chateau from Escape to the Chateau though - without the sewage problem obvs.
