|well Moonlight only got canceled after one season because of the writers strike, but the show actually got voted for best TV drama in 2008. i believe that Three Rivers was canceled after three seasons, which was no surprise. he does need to make better career choices, so hopefully he made the right one with this show! -thanks for the feedback|
Actually Three Rivers also lasted a season of 13 episodes.
Moonlight's cancellation was very weird. Right before the writer's strike, the president of CBS said Moonlight was likely to be renewed. Then the strike hit, only 12 episodes had aired by then, then the strike ended, and 4 more episodes were announced for the first season. They aired, then right after they finished airing, the president of CBS annouced it was cancelled. Very strange.
Could have been worse. Could have gone through what Whedon and Firefly did on FOX. Whedon writesa 2 hour pilot, FOX thinks it's too boring, and at the last minute asks for another pilot. Firefly airs and throughout its season is moved all over the schedule, pre-empted quite a lot for sports, and every episode is aired out of order, with three episodes never aired, before it's cancelled during Christmas break. FOX doesn't seem to know what quite to do with Sci-Fi shows it has, similar problems with Whedon's Dollhouse and The Sarah Connor Chronicles also only lasted two seasons. At least right now, they're still promoting Fringe.
Oh look at that, I veered off onto ranting about FOX. Whoops.
