The thing is, if people don't like the show, they don't like it and that's that. If they're not watching it, they're not watching it and that means that, comparitively, not many people like it. That's just the way it is. People won't watch things they don't like and I think the ratings well and truly reflect it. It certainly IS a pity that they are so low and that the show was cancelled but to just blame Fox is silly in my opinion because there are so many, many other factors, particularly the mighty dollar and advertising revenue in general.
I'd like to see Joss have another hit on his hands at some point and lets hope he does but maybe recycling his actors is his shows is a bad idea because they have all been so closely associated with his big hits, "Buffy" and "Angel". He needs a new direction and some new blood and he certainly has the talent to make it happen so fingers crossed for the future.
