Jeremiah also had a lot of potential and should not have got cancelled.

Dark Angel (after Firefly, cancelling this was the worst mistake in TV history, in my opinion)

Also, I think Angel had another series left in it (maybe he could have been dusted though and it focus more on Illyria?)

Greg the Bunny... great idea and cast.

And what about The Red Green Show? PBS sabotaged that one by changing the date/time too often. Or maybe it was just Oregon PB that did that. It was funny without offending anyone (except maybe those Canadians who live in Port Uranium--all 53 of them), and that's not easy anymore.

Speaking of offensive, Action, probably got the ax for that reason (I loved it--EVERYbody should be offended once in a while). I loved Mohr, in a close-up, screaming obscenities and then his young daughter telling him, "That's good, daddy."

What do I know? I think after Mad Cow they should call the Swine Flu, Hog Wild... Wheeeennnngggg!!!

I just remembered, I liked Drew Carrey's Green Screen Show.  It was cancelled too early for my taste.  Very disappointing.  Bluesad

The Red Green Show ran for 15 years and 300 episodes, and it's still in reruns on a couple of channels. The cancellation seems to have more to do with Steve Smith wanting to retire than with anyone messing around with the show.

I used to watch Red Green pretty regularly. As far as I'm concerned, the show jumped the shark when the "outdoor show" format started getting mixed up with other goings-on at the lodge. We started seeing things happening apart from the show within a show, and people who would previously just get described in Red's stories became real characters on the show. It was much better at the beginning.

I watch mostly documentaries on the Discovery, Science and National Geographic Channels.  Unlike fictional TV shows, you don't invest much emotion in those.

Are you saying I am the only one that yells at the screen when those pseudo-docu-dramas start to present hypothesis as fact and try to pass theory off as scientific evidence?  Buggedout

I agree.I remember seeing one of the new episodes that showed a bunch of women(I think they were wives of the lodge members)picketing or some such thing.Women should never ever be shown on the Red Green Show.If ever there was a show that was 100% for men,it is Red Green(though my Mom watches it once in a while).
It still airs on Saturday nights on the local PBS affiliate here near KCMO.I just wish they would show episodes that I have not already seen a dozen times.

I loved Red Green when I was growing up in Northern Minnesota.  After I moved to Texas, I could never find it.  :(

I have always felt Married With Children was taken off kind of early/oddly. I mean i'm a huge fan and all, but I will say the jokes were wearing a little thin but I still loved them and the ratings were still good, espcially in foreign markets(I understand Germans are huge fans of MWC)just kind of weird it was canned at the last minute without a final show for the fans. You have to understand MWC was the very first show to run on Fox when nobody knew what Fox was and MWC helped it become as popular as it is now. Just goes to show you how networks care about their shows and fans. :(

Shame too, as I really liked it.  I remember they moved it like, three times, from Sunday night to Tuesday, then to Saturday nights.  Good show.

My Name is Earl gets the axe. Worst thing is it ended on a  "to be continued..." I didn't like the season where he was in jail as much as the first ones but this last season I thought was back on track.

Red Green! I love that show. I'm from Michigan of course. All true Michiganders love Red Green.  Cheers I have a hat I wear every single day-everywhere- just like his. A green fishing hat. Red Green the MAN!

Yet they cancelled Deadwood and Rome after two seasons.

well, to be fair, Rome was phenomenally expensive to produce, and they ended it at the perfect point.  After Octavian ascends as Caesar Augustus, things get kind of boring in Rome for a while (other than Octavian's daughter being a nymphomaniac).
