What did it have to do with if not ratings?  The subject matter?  I ask because this one really pissed me off.

Wow, that's eye opening!  Thanks a lot for the link, this was all under my radar.  This article also raises a question.  Exactly how much swearing are we allowed to do on these forums?  I ask because that article makes me want to break out my "go straight to hell, do not pass Go" swear words.

You can say fuck and cock, but not d*mn or h*ck.

I'm kidding. There's a filter so anyone can set what they want to see. And I think the people with the filter turned on just saw puppies and daisies. Now I'm jealous.

Glad to see Wonderfalls on several peoples lists, I'll never understand how they can have so many shows finished and not even give it a chance, at least air the things and see how the ratings go, it's not like they had anything better to put on...  At least they are all on the DVD box set.  Same with the show Dinosours, I think there were 4 or 6 unaired shows, also now available on DVD, although that show was hit or miss, some episodes hilarious and some with not many laughs.

The way Futurama was kicked around and then cancelled was a crime, at least we've got 3 more movies and the possibility of more.

Someone mentioned SG1 pilot being more mature, wasn't the entire first season on Showtime?  That's one I'm not sorry it got taken off, it was running out of steam the last several seasons, the DVD movies are a good way to go, hope they can do a few a year, the first one was better than most of the episodes in the last several years.

One that I haven't see mentioned here is Brisco County Junior, that was a great show that could have gone on much longer.

I think 3rd Rock From the Sun could have gone one more year, it was still pretty funny when it was axed...

I agree with Enterprise just getting good when it was pulled, except for the extreemly lame last episode the last season was great.

One word:  Stella.  Dear God, why did they have to cancel that hilarious, HILARIOUS show? :angry:

Worst of all, they replaced it with Mind of Mencia. :grr:

Amen!

My girlfriend and I just rewatched the series this week. I hope the three of them get together on a new project that's of the same quality.

Their recent movie projects have been OK at best.
FINE

I miss Invader Zim, Megas XLR, and other third great cartoon show

And Samurai Jack.  I cracked up when I saw Eerie Indiana as a missed show, I can't believe you remember that.  How about Mad Cats and Street Sharks?
George Washington Lincoln Lando Calrissian Brown!  You black bastard.

To be honest, I didn't watch it either....

But I remember when it was on and then cancelled (judging by what I read on the MST3K Discussion Board and the TrekBBS) there was a great gnashing of teeth across the country about this not getting a fair chance....

I have a feeling the people who were pissed it was cancelled didn't watch it either.
