We live in a nation gripped by fear. The morning after we watch our
favorite TV show, we read our favorite blogger, and then head to
Twitter to see if the series has been cancelled. This fear is well-
founded. In this crowded marketplace, very few programs have truly
good ratings. If the title isn't a military and/or medical acronym,
odds are that it's on the chopping block.

How can you tell if your favorite program is being shipped off the
Land of Misfit Shows? There are, for better or worse, a number of tell-
tale signs. You always see it coming, and not just from the ratings.
The writers' room might start making desperate moves to spice up the
show. Circumstances outside the show itself can be enough to bring a
powerful program to its knees.

You may not want to admit it to yourself, but there are always signs
of impending doom. Forewarned is forearmed, TV lovers—these are the 25
Signs That Your Favorite Show Is Going to Get Cancelled.

Hmmm...what TV shows ARE off topic?

Brilliant!

And from the original article:

"some other notable showkillers include Blair Underwood, Krista Allen,
Aidan Quinn, and Donnie Wahlberg."

Conspicuously missing from the list thus far: Summer Glau!

http://www.complexmag.ca/pop-culture/2012/11/25-best-season-finales-of-all-time/
also has a glaring omission: Star Trek TNG's "The Best of Both Worlds, Part
1". The DS9 season 5 finale "Call to Arms" probably also deserves mention.

Except, you know, what happens when he joins the cast is, the show runs
