FireFly- Anyone who has seen this show understands. It was Star Wars with more cowboys. It suffered from bad ratings (Presumably, this is Fox we're talking about), and was canceled after 11 of it's 14 episodes aired, many of which were shown in the wrong order.
Megas XLR- This is a show that doesn't take itself too seriously to the point where it parodies and makes fun of it's own genre, poking fun at Gundam, Transformers, Voltron, and anime in general. Plus it had Steve Blum, and he's awesome.
Futurama- I shouldn't have listed this because it lasted four seasons and four DVD movies, but it's "low ratings" were probably due to Fox constantly messing around with the schedule, skipping a week, or showing an episode on a different day.
Arrested Development- Alright, this one really DID have low ratings, which is bizarre. You'd be hard pressed to find a comedy series that's both intelligent and hilarious. And Ron Howard was the freakin' narrator.

Studio 60: Same as Drive, NBC screwed the pooch and blamed it on bad ratings when they failed to properly promote it.
I agree with you on Drive (Nathan Fillion FTW), but I thought Studio 60 went under because it was essentially a more dramatic version of 30 Rock.
