Party Down - 5 Canceled TV Shows That Need to Make a ComebackParty Down

Party Down was one of those shows that was a little bit ahead of its time while receiving its fair share of bad luck. The 30-minute comedy follows a group of caterers as they try to make it in Hollywood while becoming entangled in the absurd lives of those they cater for. The show features an all-star cast of actors that were either already household names or well on their way, including Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, and Martin Starr with high-profile guest stars like J. K. Simmons, Joey Lauren Adams, and Kristen Bell. Just taking into account the cast alone, a Party Down reunion seems next to impossible despite its cult following.

If you haven’t seen the show, you might be asking how a series with so many great comedy actors failed to find an audience. It certainly wasn’t the show’s reception, as the show consistently earned praise from both critics and viewers. This is where being ahead of its time starts to come into play. Running from 2009 to 2010, Starz probably wasn’t the best place for the show to land, as the channel simply wasn’t well-known for original programming (and still isn’t) or even available to most people. The show later lost Adam Scott to Parks and Recreation and Jane Lynch to Glee, which became Party Down’s death knell amid low TV ratings.
