Their result for The When Will FOX Cancel You? Test ...

5 Seasons

( 62 Costs, 55 Reception, and 47 Cult Appeal )

You started out as the new kid on the block, and you worked hard and got just lucky enough to secure yourself a good-sized audience. FOX was happy to keep you around. But over time, as often happens, things started to go awry. Your costs increased, perhaps more than you would have predicted. Lacking a core of devoted fans, your casual viewers drifted away to find other shows. Though you fought a good fight and lived a good life, FOX lets you go after your fifth season. But even if you won't echo on in the hearts of your fans, you at the very least will go on in syndication.
