From a Cheap and Chippy Chopper on a Big, Black Block

It's that time again! The television season is ending, and we anxiously await the fates of our favorite series, wondering who will be back next year. And reevaluating how much we care. I was going to wait a week to do this, until all my finales had aired, but the only shows whose finales would have really affected how much (more) I want them back have passed.

Chuck: This show really won my heart in the long run. I thought it was great fun, but I wouldn't necessarily miss it terribly, and then it got even better. The finale was indeed a game-changer, but I'm not quite sure I like how the game changed. That being said, I still believe the game will be as awesome and fun as it has always been, but I'm not burning down my living room, Mr. Schwartz Fedak.
How Much I Want It Back: 8.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 10, as this is the bubble show that has the greatest chance of actually surviving. COME ON, NBC.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 80.

How I Met Your Mother: Sure, there's been little plot momentum this season, but it's still hilarious, and I love my half hour a week with the characters.
How Much I Want It Back: 7.5.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0. It's a sure thing.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 0.

Heroes: The show kind of got back on track at the end, but I don't think I care anymore. It's not a zeitgeist show like it used to be, and the only character I still really love and want to watch is Noah Bennet. I am mildly intrigued by the story the finale set up, but...I think I might want to make room for newer, better shows?
How Much I Want It Back: 4.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: -10. It's already been renewed.
Upfront Stress Quotient: N/A.

Reaper: The second season has been a definite improvement over the first season with more focus on the arcs and more creativity with the Soul-of-the-Week framework. And Nina is pretty! She's like a cross between Julie Benz and Sarah Paulson. So it's been an enjoyable hoot, but I'm hoping they wrap up the story and let Sam beat the Devil or something since Fazekas and Butters have already moved on, to my knowledge.
How Much I Want It Back: 5.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 3, as I don't see a way this is coming back, but I thought it was a goner this time last year too.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 15.

Fringe: This show's gotten kind of awesome. The arc is building and constantly tying into the MOTWs, and there's a lot of cool shit going down. I haven't fallen head over heels for it yet, but it could get there.
How Much I Want It Back: 7.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0, as it's already been renewed. Yay!
Upfront Stress Quotient: N/A.

Cupid: A valiant effort, but the spark just isn't there. I like it okay, I guess, but the original was just SO MUCH BETTER.
How Much I Want It Back: 2.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0, because I really don't want it back.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 0.

Lost: OMG LOST. DO I EVEN HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING?
How Much I Want It Back: 11.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0, since it was renewed two years ago.
Upfront Stress Quotient: N/A.

My Name Is Earl: One of the most underrated comedies on television. Every now and then I think about giving it up because no one else watches it, but then I watch an episode and am reminded how hilarious it is. I wouldn't be crushed if it didn't come back, though.
How Much I Want It Back: 6.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 7, as it apparently needs my help.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 42.

The Office: I can understand some of the criticisms, but I still think the show's funny, and I need my weekly dose of Pam.
How Much I Want It Back: 7.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0, as it's already been renewed.
Upfront Stress Quotient: N/A.

30 Rock: Still as wacky as ever, and my Facebook status appreciates its presence every Thursday night. I am not that emotionally attached to it, though.
How Much I Want It Back: 6.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0, as it's already been renewed.
Upfront Stress Quotient: N/A.

Supernatural: Sam and Dean! Angels and demons! Apocalypse! Lucifer! Good times, you guys.
How Much I Want It Back: 8.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 0, as it's already been renewed for the fifth and final season. Don't fuck with the story, CW. Let the show end with a proper kaboom.
Upfront Stress Quotient: N/A.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: I think you know how I feel about this show.
How Much I Want It Back: 20.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 20.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 400.

Dollhouse: It's gotten much better and has turned into a pretty interesting and cool show in its own right, but it's no Buffy, Angel, or Firefly. Enver Gjokaj (Victor), however, is FUCKING AMAZING, and I can't wait to see what he does next. On this show or any other.
How Much I Want It Back: 7.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 8, as I'd rather have Chuck and/or SCC back.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 56.

Party Down: Oooh, you didn't even know I was watching this, did you? The pilot was merely okay, but it's gotten much funnier since then, and now I really look forward to watching each episode.
How Much I Want It Back: 7.
Amount of Psychic Love Energy Allotted: 5, as I'm pretty sure Starz is going to renew it.
Upfront Stress Quotient: 35.
