Sci-Fi/Fantasy Shows That Fox Ran Longer Than Firefly

It's the 25th anniversary of the Fox broadcasting network, a fact they are celebrating this weekend with a big retrospective special. But what are the odds that it will acknowledge one of the biggest mistakes in Fox history: the cancellation of Firefly after eleven episodes (which aired in the wrong order, to boot)? And while the Serenity movie and all of the related books and comics have since helped soften the blow, we still can't help but point out all of the sci-fi/supernatural series that Fox programmers chose to keep on longer than Mal and his crew. Sure some of them were worthy of the support -- but not most of them...

Alcatraz (13 episodes, to date)

Oh... and a little show called Dollhouse (26 episodes)
