TV TV Shows Cancelled for Pretty Dumb Reasons: "Everwood"

One family drama’s success was literally another family drama’s failure when The WB decided to un-cancel "7th Heaven" — which had days earlier aired a well-promoted “series finale” — and instead boot the Browns, as the netlet merged with UPN to become The CW.
