To be fair, I think that article is referring mainly to shows that lasted an exceptionally short amount of time (less then two seasons, and even less then one with many of those). Futurama, though killed before its time, did last five years on network tv, which is nothing to sniff at. Plus its at least running regularly in reruns, whereas all those other shows are simply lost (outside of dvds, anyway).
i agree, a couple of days ago i started to watch every episode in a row, it took 26 hours, and it really hit me how many episodes they got to do, plus the writers made the time valuable too, they got most of the shows mysteries solved.
The Tick was a show that was mentioned on the article that i wish they could have done more of, now that was a great programme cancelled after the 2nd season i think
