    TV shows you loved that ended too soon or wish was still on the air

    What TV shows did you love that were taken off the air too soon in your opinion. I assume Arrested Development will be a huge show mentioned so assume that's been covered. Others?

    I loved the show NewsRadio from the mid-90s so much. Was never a huge critical success or Nielsen's success but it was damn funny. Just went downhill after Phil Hartman died.

    Jericho. It was finally worthwhile and turning into something outstanding when it was cancelled.

    In a different vein, Heroes, in the sense that the writers' strike gave that show a hit it never recovered from. It had a chance to be special, but really never got on track at all again.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Las Vegas - season ended with an open story line but b/c of the success of Transformers, Josh Duhamel left and it was a great show in my opinion.

    Firefly, if you don't know, you should find out.

    Rules Of engagement. Still ticked off it didn't get a fair shot at a regular timeslot on cbs. Watch reruns on CW and WGN all the time.

    Friday Night Lights. It ended perfectly, but the sign of a good show is that a person wants to keep watching it. And I would watch that beautifully written show all of the time.

    New Adventures of Old Christine. Great show. Very underrated.

    Veronica Mars, but I am excited to see if they can pull off the movie.

    Obviously not many people get into it, but Golden Boy was on CBS this last season. Was setting up to be a pretty cool series, but ended after one season. We were pretty bummed.

    Freaks & Geeks. What a cast that was. And of course Firefly.

    Doctor Doctor with Matt Frewer (Max Headroom)
    Andy Richter's Universe (or something like that)

    NewsRadio and Sports Night are two quality picks.

    I'd have to add Quantum Leap. Even one more season would have prevented the "Poochie died on the way back to his home planet"-style ending they slapped on the series. Several storylines that were set up just went to waste.

    They really ruined Heroes in the final season and thought that ended kinda ubruptly.
