Whoo-hoo! I Even Beat Firefly!

3 Episodes
( 61 Costs, 27 Reception, and 20 Cult Appeal )
Everything seemed to go wrong with you. You had high hopes and high
expectations, and you poured the money into making sure it happened.
But something along the way went wrong. People just didn't tune in. And
because you tried to go for the bigger mainstream audience, you didn't
inject enough innovative material to make the experts take notice. An
failure in every sense of the word, FOX lets you go after a meager
three episodes.

  1. Ha! I WAS Firefly and I'm damn proud!

  2. 2.5 Seasons [aka Arrested Development]

    ( 61 Costs, 63 Reception, and 66 Cult Appeal )

    Your tale is a tragic one indeed. You started off as a bit of a gamble, a new show with a little bit of a pricy budget, but lots of grand ideas. And against all odds, not only did you manage to snatch up devoted fans attracted to your new ideas and ways, but you also managed to secure critical attention. Although the ratings weren't quite up to expectations, FOX kept you alive hoping that your achievements were indicators of your true potential. So you lived on, and you fought harder and harder each day to realize that potential. But it never did come. FOX renews you for a third season as a last opportunity, but it fails to yield results, and your struggle comes to a sad end halfway through the third season.

    [sad to say, my parents would probably describe my life in much the same terms...]

  3. Were that I had been this successful in real life.

    9 Seasons
    ( 46 Costs, 72 Reception, and 73 Cult Appeal )
    You are a rare phenomenon. You are the expensive show with a healthy cult appeal that still somehow managed to be a ratings smash. You are living proof that sometimes, all the planets can align in the right order. Although FOX would prefer something cheaper to produce, they're more than willing to make the investment for the returns you offer and the inevitable impending cash flow from your merchandise. You live a full life of nine seasons and retire confidently, knowing that you have secured a high place in the history of television.
