    I will give you that fox cancels shows far too soon, and quite a few good shows where lost like Standoff, Justice, Tru Calling, and John Doe. But seriously I saw mentioned Drive? That show was horrible, I can't understand how they ever let that be show to start out with.

    Oh, it's been going on far longer and in greater numbers than that. John Doe, Firefly, Brimstone...[/QUOTE]

    I thought I was the only Brimstone fan out there.

    Is there a petition, anyone? Or should we all just stop watching FOX, knowing that the new good shows will be canceled and the new bad shows suck?

    I loved this show, it actually made me think about history and what the US was like during each era they flashed back to. It would have been a lot of fun to get to see more of John's past life.

    Network execs suck...

    No!! Why does this happen to all shows that I love watching? And in their first season too! I should learn by now that I should not watch shows in their first season and grow attached to them, only to see them canceled, but I can't help it! Grrr... Fox!

    I'm very upset with Fox. But that won't stop me from watching new shows. I'd like to give them all a chance to actually be shows. And I didn't know Moonlight was cancelled until like one minute ago. I'm now very upset.

    Yes that's what I thought when I read about the new joss whedon show. Isn't a 7 episodes order quite cowardish and a bad omen to begin with? usually they order 13 episodes...

    Fox strikes again. everytime they get a good show they cancell it. they'll replace it with some crappy reality show like they always do. I loved this show. good storyline, good characters. they have left themselves a two show network. bones and house are really all thats left.

    I thought I was the only Drive fan out there! That one was never given any chance. New Amsterdam was screwed from the start, unfortunately, but it was a fun 7 episodes.

    The networks in general seem to be ordering fewer episodes, expecting to see if there is a breakout right away, which probably is contributing to the non-stop cancelling of great shows, as we've all mentioned...

    You know what I thought after I saw the first episode? I thought they were going to act like his soulmate was the doctor the whole first season, but then when he figured out that it wasn't her he would review the tapes again and see his partner. I really thought they were going to go with that ending even though they ended it prematurely.

    I should no longer bother watching new shows... I started watching 2 new shows this year: Moonlight and New Amsterdam... And of course, both were cancelled... Stupid networks...

    Even though I tell myself there will be no new shows for me, I'll still tune in for Dollhouse... I'm hypocritical that way...

    This sucks. I really liked the show and I was hoping for more. Good shows just always get canceled these days...
