1. My Name Is Earl (2005)
Damn you NBC for ending this series on a cliffhanger! You're worse than ABC is as far as cancelling shows too early! At least ABC cancelled bad shows like Caveman and ended shows that ran on for too long like Scrubs, which I liked until that atrocious ninth season...

2. Police Squad! (1982)
... but even there are times when ABC even cancels GOOD shows like this, which was the dumbest decision they ever made.

3. The Critic (1994)
If Family Guy and Futurama can come back from cancellation, why not The Critic? In my opinion, this show is on the same level of humor as South Park and early seasons of The Simpsons. Just imagine how they could parody TODAY'S movies.

I thought Animaniacs had a good run and ended when it had too without overstaying it's welcome.

Freakazoid though definitely shouldn't have ended so early.

Still working my way through My Name Is Earl since I never watched it while it was on the air. The rest of these, yep, agreed.

What about The Oblongs?

Another reason why Police Squad was cancelled is that Jim Abrahams and the Zucker brothers stated that they ran out of ideas for jokes and gags for each episode.
