Harvey Birdman's not cancelled... it's starting again tonight, IIRC, and should have new episodes in a few weeks.

Quantum Leap was definitely the one I miss most (that's already been mentioned). Although the Lone Gunmen was up there, mainly because the X-Files was starting to suck at that point, and it was nice to see fresh life from characters in that series.

Another Scott Bakula show that I was disappointed to see leave was "Mr. & Mrs. Smith". Of course at the time I was only getting one channel, and I'm sure Maria Bello didn't hurt matters any, so my memories of the show may be kinder than what it deserves.

I also am having Ed withdrawals. Yeah Ed was a wussy, but the writing was clever enough.

Speaking of wussy, I still crack everytime I think of Stacy Keach say "Stop being such a wussy" to his son "Titus". (Yeah it probably had jumped the shark by the time it went off the air, but I miss my wussy fix...)

Fox used to have a bunch of shows that never made it a full season, but I found pretty good. The George Carlin Show used to leave me in stiches, don't think it last more than 8 weeks though. Brisco County, Herman's Head, they weren't too bad either.

    Was there a better cop show than this? Ever? Law and Order, and even The Shield can't compare to Homicide. In its prime (pretty much its entire run) it was a show to behold. And Andre Braugher and Kyle Secor going after someone in the box? True must see TV.

Man, at least there's one other person out there who's feeling what I'm feeling. It's driving me crazy that the shows are NEVER on TV anymore. For a while, Court TV was showing re-runs. Now nobody does. Worse, the DVDs are expensive. The DVD set for seasons one and two is sixty bucks for only FOUR discs. And the sound is terrible. That's an unacceptable price.

Oh, and TNT showing the Law & Order/Homicide back-to-back crossover shows is nice, but it's just such a horrible tease.

Cupid: Jeremy Pivin was so good in it.
Adv. of Pete & Pete: The funniest show ever to come from Nickelodeon.

Cerebus: Barbarian, Prime Minister, Pope, Perfect House Guest.

I remember reading that the reason all those Nick shows were cancelled (or more accurately, stopped production on) was because kids will watch shows not caring if they're new or not, so if the network gets 3 or 4 seasons worth, there is no point in doing more. (I hope that made sense)

As for cancelled shows I liked, the shows that used to be on USAM come to mind, like Boston Common and Ned and Stacey. I still catch N&S on WE, and I think it's absolutely hilarious. And of course, Family Guy.

The two Norm MacDonald shows never got much of a chance, I thought. What really upset was VH1 getting rid of Late World with Zack after what seemed like 5 episodes.
Most of the other shows I would say have already been listed and/or are syndicated.
Although SciFi actually stopped showing MST3K reruns. I might actually have to buy those DVDs.

Oh, how can we forget WCW Thunder????

That's right, I forgot all about "Norm" on ABC. That was a good one.

My favorite memory of "Manimal". I'm watching it in a dorm room with a bunch of friends, one of whom has a major crush on the male star. Show goes to a commercial break. Just before it comes back on, there's a truly classic voice-over promo, one that still reduces me to helplessness after twenty years:

"Parts of 'Manimal' are brought to you by Burger King."

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week. "EMBRACE THE PENIS! LOVE THE PENIS! THE PENIS IS YOUR BEST FRIEND! Be..... the penis." (DEAN)
* Family Guy/Futurama/Brak Show (the Adult Swim Fodder division)
* Clone High/Undergrads/Dilbert (the MTV, Order a Full Season Already/Comedy Central Late-Night division)
* Jackass (probably ran its course though)
* That's My Bush
* Beat the Geeks/Upright Citizens Brigade (the Comedy Central, Stop Screwing With the Schedule division)
* Bands on the Run/Tough Enough (the Dammit, Why Do They Cancel the Only Reality Shows I Like division)

Yeah, that should cover it. And it doesn't even include retroactive ones like Sports Night, Invader Zim, Legends of the Hidden Temple (shit, I wanted to be on that back in the day... I could have in the first season, age-wise)... Although Knights and Warriors? Not on the list.

Definately Andy Richter, and I'm glad someone else mentioned American Gothic, because that was a real disappointment when they canned it. As for Brisco County, I wasn't too sad to see it go because it told a full arc, even if the end seemed a little inconsistant with the western premise. And it's great to see someone else remembers Sledghammer! To this day, if I have no business attempting a task, "Trust me, I know what I'm doing!"

The greatness of FOX between 1992 and 1994 ... it cannot be denied.

"Great Scott" (1992) starring then-nobody Tobey Maguire -- lasted all of six episodes before it was cruelly taken away from me and the five other people who watched it. Seven more were shot but never aired. I care too much about this stupid series ... this stupid series THAT I LOVED

"Bakersfield P.D." (1993-4) starring the DREAM TEAM of Ron Eldard and Giancarlo Esposito (later reunited on "Homicide" for one MAGIC episode) -- lasted 17 episodes that brought tears to my eyes with their brilliance and majesty

Somehow the disgusting yet compulsively watchable "Friends" ripoff "Down the Shore" (1992-3) outperformed both of these series with a sexifying 29 EPISODES! -- none of which I can remember a thing about, other than that they were magnetic television entertainment. And yet I've never been able to sit through an episode of "Friends."

It's funny that gugs mentioned Rocko's Modern Life, because I just saw it on today at 2 CST on regular ol' Nickolodeon. Don't know if that's a regular thing or what, but there it was.

I miss "Doug."
And, "3 South." Friggin' MTV. That show was absolutely hysterical.

Apparently it did! It premiered in 1994. Ooh, maybe it's a "Down the Shore" ripoff. That's a chilling thought.
