Fox + Firefly Cast = Doom?

So what if it has an oddball genre? I never would have thought that a space western could hold a lot of promise but it did. Shame on you Fox for not treating Firefly better.

Episode Count: 13

Wonderfalls (2004)
A quirky dramedy about a young woman who starts receiving messages from anamorphic items to make her do their bidding.

Episode Count: 13
Firefly Cast Member: Jewel Staite
Vix's rating:
The Inside follows a team of investigators at the FBI's Violent Crime Unit. A much creepier and eminently superior tv show when compared to the more popular, Criminal Minds

Episode Count: 13
Firefly Cast Member: Adam Baldwin

People who added this item 58 Average listal rating (35 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 7.6
Standoff (2006)
A pair of hostage negotiators deal with work and their budding romance. Okay so I only started watching this because of Ron Livingston. But the show really drew me in with the great mix of interesting characters and stories. So it was surprising to hear that Standoff had been cancelled.

Episode Count: 18
Firefly Cast Member: Gina Torres

Drive (2007)
Apparently it's The Fast and the Furious for television. Despite the good reviews, Drive was gone pretty quickly.

Episode Count: 7
Firefly Cast Member: Nathan Fillion
Though it got off to a slow start, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was a pretty decent show - expanding on the Terminator mythos in interesting ways.

Episode Count: 31
Firefly Cast Member: Summer Glau

People who added this item 737 Average listal rating (454 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
Interesting concept, great supporting cast but it never got good ratings. Actually this time I think the reason was because people didn't care about Echo (played by Eliza Dushku)

Episode Count: 27
Firefly Cast Member: Alan Tudyk
Vix's rating:

The Fox Network has a reputation for not giving shows a chance. I've noticed that a lot of Firefly cast members who appear on Fox shows tend to have short-lived series.

Some people have mentioned that the "curse" extends to other networks as well: Adam Baldwin in Daybreak (ABC), Jewel Staite in Stargate: Atlantis (NBC/SciFi), Morena Baccarin in V (ABC), Sean Maher in The Playboy Club (NBC), Summer Glau in The Cape (NBC)

Right now you can find Nathan Fillion on Castle (ABC), Gina Torres on Suits (USA), Adam Baldwin on The Last Ship (TNT)
