|love that show; |
alternates ranked (not including the new one):
|Almost started watching this. My friend raves about it.|
Idk how excellent shows like (I assume) The United States of Tara and Arrested Development get cancelled, yet completely banal shows like Two and a Half Men manage to stay on the air for 8 seasons.
|Tara was on showtime, so its cancellation is somewhat more justified (since they have better viewing data than nielsen numbers).|
Arrested Development (which (i like to brag about this) I watched every week when it aired (with my mom) + tried to get everybody (who would eventually discover it on DVD when they went to college) to watch) just had shit ratings ... although FOX, to its credit, gave AD a prime time-slot + two undeserved renewals
ironically, for your examples i'm 100% sure it's american audience that is to blame, not the networks...
|now Firefly on the other hand...|
|Say word this is a show. Was watching a bit of it on tv and thought it was a movie.|
|it would probably have been better as a movie or at least hour long episodes|
