The blog Topless Robot made up a list of the top 20 greatest TV shows canceled by Fox. There are some real classics on this list. The Family Guy was canceled then brought back. The live action version of The Tick was so brilliant no one really got it, so you can't really blame that one on Fox.
The real criminal cuts on the list are Wonderfalls and Firefly. These shows are so fantastic that I'm almost relieved they were canceled before they could be ruined. One flawless season each--these shows make for great DVDs. I've watched both series at least three times. Firefly sold so well on DVD that they were able to make a movie to give the series a satisfactory resolution.
Paulina Logan covered the Firefly theme and did such a fine job that I'm putting it in the neverending KTWS talent competition. (Show theme is here; Wonderfalls' pilot is here)
