of course it was canceled... Fox always cancels the good shows

see:

Angel
Arrested Development
Family Guy
Firefly
Futurama
Keen Eddie
Point Pleasant
Profit
Space: Above and Beyond
Tru Calling
The Wonderfalls

^most of these never even made it past their first season... all of these ether had huge followings or won lots of awards

the people at fox who pick new shows do an amazing job. the people at fox who make up the schedules are fucktards and the people at fox who decide when to drop a show have the IQ of a dust bunny.

Basically it goes like this
-Pilot is see and loved by all fox decides to pick up the show
-the schedulers decide that the first episode (the one that introduces the show and all the characters) is too boring so the first show to be aired is going to be the 3rd or 4th episode and they'll show the first one later
-people watch the first aired episode (from chronologically later in the timeline) and despite being confused they kind of like it... not many people even turned out because the show was barely advertised and aired at time when no one can watch it
-after 3 weeks schedulers decide they're going to move the timeslot because the show isn't as big of a hit as American idol
-week 4 bombed because they didn't announce the schedule shift and all the sponsors get pissed an pull out so they move time slots again to some place close to where it was before but not exactly... this move pushes away what little of viewership and sponsorship it had left.
-viewers and sponsors get annoyed and watch something else while the show isn't released chronologically nor have a static timeslot... the show is barely promoted and plumets
-bigs wigs see raitings dropping and sponsors pulling out and decide it's because the show just isn't popular so they pull the plug
-later that year the show sweeps several award ceremonies
-the complete series is released on DVD and breaks all sales records
-Fox decides to give it a second look but most of the cast and crew has already moved on to bigger and better things.
-Fox looks for a new show to fill the void
-repeat ....

don't think it's just fox.. all of them have gone dumb

here's my wtf were they thinking list right now


jericho.. fantastic show, and they picked the worst damn place in the story to drop it
studio 60 on the sunset strip.. my favorite new show, so of course it must go
drive.. kinda dug it, but hard to form an opinion after just 4 eps
the class.. sorry, but that show was just funny as hell
veronica mars.. not yet official, but it doesn't look good
black donnellys.. potential, but died too young to tell for sure
the nine.. another iffy one, but i still enjoyed it
king of queens.. funny show brought back from the dead, only to be killed off again
crossing jordan.. was a great show, but i guess it has been on for a bit


and why do all these have to go? cuz we need more dumbshit reality fucking tv... AARRGGHH!!

What about Titus?

Since they canceled Futurama and Family Guy, I hated FOX!!!!
Some of these stupid new shows barely last.
Why cancel Futurama and FG when people are thriving for it?

Fox is all about reality tv for that bling bling$$
