Lack of critical attention and low ratings don’t always mean cancellation. Some shows stick it out, and television is better off for it!

Glee (Fox)

Currently on hiatus until early 2015, the former super buzzy darling has one more season's worth of episodes to air. Is it weird to be nostalgic for a series that's still technically on the air?

2 of 12 Danny Feld/ABC

Revenge (ABC)

The Count of Monte Cristo-inspired show continues even as the buzz surrounding the juicy Hamptons melodrama hasn't. Season four even features a game-changer that alters the audience's perception of the entire series, so maybe it's time to get back into it? It is still on, you know.

3 of 12 Patrick McElhenney/FXX

The League (FXX)

With a move to new network FXX, the fantasy football comedy flies under the radar of way more buzzy FX shows like Sons of Anarchy.

4 of 12 Chuck Hodes/Showtime

Shameless (Showtime)

Shameless showcases powerful performances from William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, but nobody seems to notice. Despite lacking the chatter surrounding shows like Homeland and Girls, the Showtime comedy-drama still managed to snag a season five renewal.

5 of 12 Lifetime

Project Runway (Lifetime)

The fate of Project Runway seemed unsure when Lifetime took the show from Bravo. Now a franchise with multiple spinoffs, the competition series just wrapped its 13th season. Thirteenth!

6 of 12 Scott Green/NBC

Grimm (NBC)

Fantasy fatigue hasn't affected sleeper hit Grimm, which fuses out-there fairy tale elements with the tried-and-true police procedural format. Watch it! It's still on!

Blue Bloods (CBS)

If you don't watch network TV on Friday nights, you don't know that Blue Bloods totally dominates the night.

8 of 12 Discovery Channel

MythBusters (Discovery)

A favorite in classrooms, MythBusters continues to air new episodes every year. The long-running series did mark one ending, though: supporting team members, Kari Byron, Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci finished their last season in 2014.

9 of 12 Chuck Hodes/The CW

Supernatural (The CW)

Anyone not familiar with something called SuperWhoLock (look it up on Tumblr) may not realize just how rabid and influential Supernatural's fans are. The spooky series has even inspired its own fan conventions worldwide.

10 of 12 Steve Wilkie/NickTeen

Degrassi (TeenNick)

Yes, the Canadian teen soap that first gave us Drake, better known then as Jimmy the high school basketball star, is still going strong. And still doling out, like, totally intense drama to every subsequent Degrassi High class.

11 of 12 Kelsey McNeal/Bravo

The Millionaire Matchmaker (Bravo)

Frequent overhauls in staff (and hairdos) haven't deterred Patti Stanger in her over-the-top Bravo reality series, as she hits eight seasons of matching millionaires with their potential "true loves."

12 of 12 Chris Large/AMC

Hell on Wheels (AMC)

Hell on Wheels may not have Walking Dead numbers, but it has lasted longer than Low Winter Sun. The Western drama will be treated with a Breaking Bad-style final season, split between 2015 and 2016. So we can say, "This show is still on?" for two more years.
