Favorite TV sitcoms that got the ax

What are your favorite shows that have been canceled prematurely due to low ratings? (Mine has always been ”My So-Called Life.”) — Stephanie Lee

I heartily (and heart-brokenly) agree with you about ”Life,” the one-season Claire Danes classic. Other series I think died too soon: the achingly funny ”Freaks and Geeks” (1999); Profit (Remember Adrian Pasdar as the ruthless businessman who slept naked in a cardboard box? Four episodes on Fox in 1996? Anyone?); and Dabney Coleman’s great, mean media-spoof sitcom, ”Buffalo Bill” (1983-84).
