Jutin has an excellent point.. and I think I am glad they took the chance on Firefly int he first place or we wouldn't have even the few shows we do...but here is another question..
is it Fox or is it the average public???
are we victims of that lowest common denominator sort of thinking- where society is just getting dumbed down?
Do we REALLY think Fox takes on shows HOPING they will be cancelled sooner rather than later? That doesn't make business sense to me.
Happy to read any explanations...

FOX scoops up the copyrights, lets them live just long enough to gain the extremely loyal fan base that such shows do, and then sits back and enjoys large merchandise and other sales which come from their exclusive rights. Shows, like Firefly, with these types of fan bases are opportunities for FOX to gain great profits without having to put much energy into the show itself.

I am like most of you. I hated FOX when they cancelled Firefly. I bombarded them with angry letters telling them to stop cancelling great shows, just because Firefly had a small fraction of American Idol's ratings.
I eventually realized something, looking at my wall of DVDs, my TV show section is made up of a lot of cancelled TV shows. Firefly, Wonderfalls, Greg The Bunny, Dark Angel and I would love to have Action released on DVD so I can run out and buy it... Aside from Buffy/Angel and Garfield, all of my TV show DVDs are of shows that originally aired on FOX... The Simpsons, Arrested Development, 24 and That 70's Show being the only other DVDs that I haven't mentioned and they are all still on the air and are shown on FOX.
What I realized is this: While FOX cancels many shows that I LOVE SO MUCH... these are shows that FOX took the chance on, shows that FOX put on the air... great original programing being brought to us by FOX... While other networks have Lost (I hate that show, they ain't doin' nuthin') and CSI (man is that a load of steamy crap worthy of two spin-offs) and... what does NBC have? I forget... oh Cheers... anywho, if it weren't for FOX we would have never even seen Firefly or any other show that they took from you. They can't take something you love without being smart enough to bring it to us in the first place.

And even though they're axing ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, they at least gave it 2 1/2 years for it to flourish, as opposed to a few weeks.

Why oh why doesn't another network like USA or Sci-fi Channel pick up more episodes.

Six months later
Joss: Here's a pilot for my new show, it's called "Firefly"
Fox Executive: *Brief pause* Uh...we have no idea how to sell this...
Joss: What are you saying? You wanted a show!
Fox Executive: Yeah...but this is hard to sell to people, not enough action happening, uh...do another pilot, we'll air this one later.
Joss: But that's the pilot to the whole series!
Fox Executive: Listen, do you wear the suit? Do you decide what shows go on the air? Let us do our job.

Yes, let the hate flow through you. Your anger toward fox will give you strength. Give in to your rage and you shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. Strike fox down and your journey shall be complete. Although before you wage your mad crusade against the fox empire you should make sure you have medical insurance and update your will so that you’ll be prepared when the fox security guards tackle you and break your spine.
