people just don't know good TV when they see it

There's a small handful of TV shows that I really like to watch. One of them is Fox's Arrested Development. Granted, I only recently got into watching it, but I really enjoy it. It was with despair that I recently read about how Fox was going to shorten the show's run and supplant it with some new animated series during March sweeps. This led to some suspicion and internet rumor that the show was going to be cancelled. Thankfully, I read an article stating that it isn't being cancelled or anything like that. However, they are getting poor ratings, so I don't see a long life for it on Fox's popular Sunday night lineup. It's damn unfortunate. I'd hate to see it go the way of Freaks and Geeks which was the best show that nobody watched. Although it (like Arrested Development) was an Emmy-winning show, it wasn't getting any ratings. It only lasted one season. NBC didn't have the courage to stick with it the way they stuck with Cheers when it was getting poor ratings early on. By the way, the DVD set for Freaks and Geeks is well worth the price. I love mine.
