    NBC sure does have a penchant for cancelling good shows.

    Better to cancel series while they are good than let them live years and years after jumping the shark

    I had it lined up to watch but got called away about 20 minutes into the first episode. I do usually like to watch TV shows after they have been cancelled but I am not actually sure if I will in this case.

    After they start to decrease in quality you can just stop watching them whereas being cancelled their story just stops abruptly and/or it's left in a cliffhanger.. like it was the case for My Name is Earl. Another show cancelled by NBC,

    People seem to forget that broadcasting companies are not going to continue airing shows which no one watches, even if they are highly rated

    The ratings went from bad to horrendous this season so cant exactly blame them.

    plus while i like the show, it got way too artsy fartsy up its own ass this season. 10 minutes of hannibal staring at food and saying one 2deep4me philosophical sentence does not make good TV. season 3 finale was the best episode of the show cause shit actually happened instead of them just spending 20 minutes showing their cool cinematography, 10 minutes of hannibal staring, and then 5 minutes of something actually happening.

    that said, i hope they get picked up by netflix or something because it still is one of the better shows on-air.
