The 10 Best Short-Lived FOX Shows
From 'Firefly' to 'Wonderfalls' to 'Method & Red,' FOX has canceled some classics
No. 10 - 'Profit'
Created by David Greenwalt and John McNamara, "Profit" is still brought up any time pundits discuss shows that were simply ahead of their time. And for good reason.
The story of a ruthless and amoral young executive (Adrian Pasdar) who slept in a freakin' cardboard box played as an eviscerating critique of corporate culture with Shakespearean overtones and a rich vein of dark humor.
Put "Profit" on FX today and it would be a critical darling and Pasdar would be shoving his way into every Emmy conversation.
Put "Profit" on FOX in the spring 1996? Four episodes (including a two-hour pilot) aired.
