In Memoriam: Goodbye To All The Comedy We Lost In 2013

12/26/2013 02:17 pm ET | Updated Dec 26, 2013

As 2013 winds to a close, we thought it was important to take a look back at the comedy we lost over the year. From the end of long-running series to the late night shows that didn't really get a shot to the one celebrity breakup that actually gave us hope, 2013 leaves us with much to reflect upon.

If you're so inclined, feel free to hit play on the video below and turn up your speakers before scrolling through.

  • 'The Onion' Print Edition
    The Onion
  • 2012 saw 'The Onion' gutted of some its long-time talent after it moved all editorial operations to Chicago, and 2013 saw its final print edition ever. Of course, the satirical news outlet is still alive and well, but we'll miss actually turning the pages of 'America's Finest News Source.'
  • Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell
  • It would have been nice to see how this show would have developed given another year to really hone its voice and audience. Alas, it was not to be.
  • Anthony Weiner Jokes
  • 2013 was the year when Anthony Weiner's technologically-inept philandering officially ceased to be funny. But we all enjoyed it while it lasted, didn't we?
  • 30 Rock
    AP
  • 2013 began with the end of one of our favorite long-running series, leaving us all asking, 'What's next?'

    To answer at least part of that...
  • Up Late With Alec Baldwin
    MSNBC
  • Oh, 'Up Late With Alec Baldwin', we hardly knew you. But we couldn't really say we were surprised either.
  • Weekend Update With Seth Meyers
    AP
  • In 2013, we learned that Seth Meyers would be leaving SNL to take over hosting 'Late Night' when Jimmy Fallon moves on to 'The Tonight Show.' (He still has an episode or two left in 2014 alongside co-anchor Cecily Strong.) We're excited for his new gig, but we'll miss that smile at the Update desk.

    Speaking of which...
  • Stefon
    AP
  • With Bill Hader's departure from "SNL" we were forced to say goodbye to Stefon. As Weekend Update's city correspondent, he had EVERYTHING.
  • John Oliver On The Daily Show
    AP
  • Senior British Correspondent no more, Oliver has left TDS to host his own weekly show on HBO. His recent surprise send-off from Jon Stewart was sweet and extremely emotional.
  • Courtney Stodden & Doug Hutchison's Marriage
    PA
  • If they couldn't make it work... good. Let's just forget this ever happened, okay?
  • The Jeselnik Offensive

  • Anthony Jeselnik's darkly funny late night show didn't connect with Comedy Central's audience. Guess they prefer 'Tosh Offensive'. Oh, well.
  • Guys With Kids
    AP
  • The Jimmy Fallon-produced "Guys With Kids" may not have wowed critics or audiences, but you had to give it credit for its old-school television theme song.
  • Whitney

  • That relentless ad campaign from 2011 must have finally worn off, because 'Whitney' was cancelled earlier this year.
  • Eastbound And Down
    Getty Images
  • Danny McBride hasn't retired from being awesome, but his show has after four seasons.
  • The Cleveland Show
    Fox
  • After four seasons, the "Family Guy" spin-off was cancelled this past May.
  • Nikki & Sarah Live
    AP
  • They came, they saw, they met JT, they were cancelled. Sigh.
  • Deon Cole's Black Box
    TBS
  • We only got 6 episodes of Deon Cole hosting his own show... not NEARLY enough.
  • Futurama
    AP
  • Futurama ended its run for reals this time... or did it? Who really knows?
  • The Office
    Wikipedia Commons
  • After nine seasons, the American version of 'The Office' finally closed its doors.
  • Believing Anything On The Internet Is Real
  • Jimmy Kimmel deceived the world with his twerk fail prank featuring a stunt woman. While we applaud his efforts to end twerking forever, we lament the passing of that innocent time when we believed the videos we saw on YouTube were real.
  • Mrs. Krabappel
    Fox
  • This one really, actually hurts.
