4 Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

It was epic I can't believe the Simpsons has been going for 29 years and Futurama only went for 14 years it's unfair.

It's the funniest show I have ever seen. I can't believe they cancelled it! It had great jokes, great plots, and great people. It just shows how bad America's sense of humor is.

Greatest show of all time. America was to dumb for it though.

This show was absolutely genius, I would call it a modern intelligent version of Seinfeld

6 Angel Angel is an American television series, a spin-off from the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I miss angel and I love buffy too by the way angel is the runoff of buffy and charmed should NEVER have been canceled I actually want to slap whoever cancled it!

A great show that was left without an ending. So sad!

9 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is an American computer animated television series created by John A. Davis. It is the first spin-off to the 2001 film Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

Great show. Original content. But was taken down by Nickelodeon in 2008 due to its low ratings. Cartoon Network should have saved this show. It's a shame it got shut down. I still watch all the episodes today hoping it'll come back.

There should've been a season six.

The Contenders
11 Firefly Firefly is an American space Western drama television series which ran from 2002–2003, created by writer and director Joss Whedon, under his Mutant Enemy Productions label.

Well, duh. Firefly was a great show, extremely well-written, and such an original concept wrapped in classic ideas. It didn't even get a whole season for idiotic reasons.

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand, I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me. But Fox can take the best gorram show ever made from us!

Such a great show with such amazing potential, but didn't even get past 14 episodes.
Oh, and a movie.

16 Freaks and Geeks Freaks and Geeks is an American teen comedy-drama television series, created by Paul Feig, with Judd Apatow as executive producer, that aired on NBC during the 1999–2000 television season.

Is this even a question? This show I should ONE OF THE best of all time. The kids seemed real. Today, the child actors don't convince you they're really their character. It launched many of its actors into fame. All in all, one of the greatest shows ever and never deserved to be cancelled.

Way better than Family guy, which should be canceled; AGAIN.

I don't give a damn bout meh reputation! Livin in the past... New generation.

23 Space: Above and Beyond

It had a good story line that could have been extended in all directions.

This show's storyline could have been ran for at least 7 to 10 seasons.

24 Dark Angel

I watched Dark angel as a child, and I remember being so angry when there was no continuation. I thought the channel has't bought all the season rights.
Then not long ago I took it again, basically finished both seasons in a few 5 days. And I was left raging.
Such an awesome concept, story AND actors.
Such a shame it was cancelled D:

Die hard fan of this show, you win Y2K babes!

Please bring back the old show to T.V.!

This was a great show. I loved Jensen Ackles as Alec.

25 Mr. Meaty Mr. Meaty is a Canadian-American television series created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley. The show centers on two lazy teenage boys named Josh Redgrove and Parker Dinkleman, who work at a fast food restaurant.
