Anything that's not a traditional sitcom or a straight-up procedural is quite a gamble for CBS. And Swingtown took the cake swingers and sex and mustaches, oh my! The stylish, '70s-set series didn't have a chance with the summer slot it was given, but it was still memorable (for those who watched it) all the same. Trina Decker (Lana Parrilla), you will not be forgotten!
They definitely got this one right. It's been mentioned many times before, even by Ms. Tassler herself, that Swingtown has made over a dozen top 10 lists since it premiered, and while it's been cancelled for a long time now, it's still doing it. It was cancelled very prematurely, and it's known. CBS is watched by old timers and the usual viewers wanting their daily dose of crime. Swingtown was different, and CBS treated it differently - no surprise there.

Back to You definitely deserves a spot on this list, though

Before I read this list I thought to myself if it doesn't have "Andy Richter Controls the Universe" it won't be a credible list. I was very happy to see it listed there! I'm also glad to see "The Tick" on the list. Both FOX shows I loved and hated to see get cancelled. Luckily both have come to DVD.

I'm surprised "Back to You" wasn't on the list. Maybe it's their #27 show.

Ekkostar, I need to respectfully disagree with you on this. Firefly was extremely different from Farscape (I am a fan of both), in concept, execution, characterization, and storytelling.

And how is Moonlight a 'concept that had been done to death'? There were a few prominent shows about vampires/immortals before that (Dark Shadows, Buffy, Highlander, and a couple more), but it's hardly been done as often as a police procedural, or a detective drama, or even various sitcom formulas.

And on a different topic, Wonderfalls being cancelled and treated so badly by Fox was truly a travesty. I've mentioned before, it was the cancellation of Wonderfalls that soured me on Fox forever. Haven't watched the network since.

I agree on the following shows
Now and Again
Journeyman
The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.
Clone High
My So Called Life
Moonlight

Another show that wasn't on the list but it was canceled too early is Point Pleasant which aired on Fox in 2005.

Yet another Fox casualty, this sci-fi Western followed the renegade crew of the rag-tag smuggling vessel, Serenity. The brainchild of geek icon Joss Whedon, the show featured sharp-tongued dialogue and a wonderfully quirky ensemble cast current small-screen stars Nathan Fillion (Castle), Adam Baldwin (Chuck), and Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), to name a few. Firefly lasted less than a season, but it spawned a feature film (Serenity), comic books, and a slew of DVD sales.
My friend Robyn just loaned me the DVDs - what a quality show. I'm totally diggin' it so far!!

Wonderfalls and My So Called Life were both great shows. I have them both on DVD. Life On Mars was really good and I'm sorry that ABC took it off after only one season. Firefly was good, but could have been better.

FOX never gave it a chance to get better.

i agree about swingtown it was a good show and in spite of what some people might thnk it was more than a show about swapping partners it was also a show about troubled marrages and troubled people in genral i really liked and and wish people had given it more of a chance

I totally agree with Moonlight, Brisco County Jr., Firefly, Now and Again
and The Tick. To that list, I would add: Sledge Hammer!, The
Magnificent Seven, Life Is Wild, Roswell,
and Tru Calling.
