Five TV shows that were canceled much too soon

Futurama has been canceled...again. Fans are keenly aware that the show was nuked back in 2003 by Fox, then brought back by Comedy Central after it bought the rights to the four movies in 2007. But this season will reportedly be the last one, with the series finale airing on September 4.

Yes, Futurama is yet another television show that has ended -- twice now -- before its time. It's unfortunate when any TV show with creative genius and plenty of potential gets smacked in the tubes before it should. Here are five more television shows that deserved a few more seasons. Apparently someone needs to explain closure to network executives.
