This year, we bid farewell to many a show and beloved character. From the very, very short-lived Work It (just two episodes aired) to Weeds and Desperate Housewives, which bowed out after eight dwindling seasons apiece. We also press on without fan-favorite characters from Mad Men and Breaking Bad, and like, half the cast of The Walking Dead. Check our our year-end TV elegy here, but proceed with caution if you're not caught up with all your shows — this video contains spoilers for characters who have died in recent episodes (although there was one big TV death Sunday night that we did not include, because it just felt too new and spoiler-y; R.I.P. to him or her anyway).
