I keep hoping that Invader Zim will pull a Family Guy and get pulled back on the air. Nobody didn't like that show, I don't know what the hell happened.

Nickelodeon wasn't the place for it.  It catered to a slightly older crowd.

It was for a year or so.  I still can't watch it at its weekly primetime showing, though...

The Lone Gunmen - Yes it was stupid, but just when they finally were getting their own stride they cancelled it.

Then again.. I doubt they'll ever air the pilot episode again...

I just thought of this one, Keenan and Kel was a great show. I'm almost sure it wasn't just outright cancelled, but I wonder why it's not on the air anymore. And what happened to Kel?!

At the risk of being severely ostracized....the XFL.

Yeah, the product was pretty rough early on, but by the end of the first season it was really coalescing into something very entertaining.  Too bad most people stopped watching after the first 2 weeks :(

I've got another one
sports night:
Half hour episode Dramedy that takes place in NYC where they broadcast a evening sports news show called "Sports night". 2 seasons Ran from 1998 to 2000

Great cast. Watch it and you'll feel a little less betrayed that Sabrina Lloyd left sliders, since this is where she went... You also may recognize Joshua Malina if you watch the west wing, or Felicity Huffman from desperate housewives. You may recognize Robert Guillaume from, well come on it's Robert Guillaume! Josh Charles and Peter Krause, who play the co-anchors also have pretty notable careers.

In the last episode they had a last laugh at ABC for canceling them. In the show, everyone was worried about what would happen to their show, since their fictional network, CSC, was going under. The guy who ends up buying the network says near the end of the episode "Anyone who can't make money with sports night, doesn't deserve to be in the business of making money."

Cause of Death: Ratings. They won a handful of awards, Emmy's and other such ones. (including one for best show you're not watching.)

Nickelodeon never cancels shows, they just slowly make each episode release farther apart until the last one, then they try to tell the kids that there are still episodes coming, you just need to keep watching.

how true.
Good news(at least in my opinion): after 2 years, give or take a few months, they're finally making a 5th season of my favorite show (the one i mentioned earlier) to be released i think very early 2006. (now when it gets dubbed into english so i can watch it, I don't know.)

The creator said that he did not want to continue with the show either.


As for mine,

Andy Richter Controls the Universe and Greg the Bunny.

Two SUPERB shows that FOX canceled... GO FIGURE!
