    Chuck should be higher on the list, The fans buying up all those Subway sandwiches was incredible.

      It will probably be higher eventually than the position it is right now if NBC keeps renewing it. Almost every season though it’s a close call to see whether it’s coming back or not.

    Firefly should be on this list. Even though they never got to finish their first season the fan support from DVD sales eventually lead to big-budgeted Hollywood movie to tie up all the loose ends.

      When I looked up information about Firefly/Serenity, the creator stated that there were plans for the movie to be made before the fans started to request it. So I kept it off because it would have happened regardless.

      Wish it would come back though – I’d love to see some more adventures of Mal and the crew.

    Um, did we forget about the US version of the office. That show was very close to getting pulled after the first season. I know, I wrote in to try to save it. Yes, the show has been in steady decline over the years. But for the first few seasons it was pure greatness.

      LOL This one I will admit I did not know. I thought I had found all of the shows that were saved by fans but I guess one slipped. Thanks for the great catch!

    I think star trek should have been number one, not because I’m a “fan-boy” – i’m not, though I like it. But because although it only got one more season at the time, continued fan support and syndication success led to10 movies, a return to TV in the form of ST the next generation, and 3 more shows for a total of 25 more seasons of star trek after the cancellation.

      I counted ST Next Generation, Deep Space 9, and Voyager as three separate TV shows as compared to the original Star Trek. While they are still all part of the same family, they came later and under a different title.

    Futurama should be # 1, It came back after a 7 year hiatus! Also futurama is the best show on that list.

    I wish Kyle XY was on this list. It should have been returned after cancellation. The ending of the third season was so in the air with unanswered questions.
    If it could be anything like Futurama and Family guy (even though they’re animated) I would be psyked.
