1) market "failure" and abrupt cancellation in 2nd season / replacement with a heartwarming series featuring pathologically stupid yet lovable adults and smart-mouthed yet undisciplined kids;
2) market "success" and a rash of Eurekaesque knockoffs on every channel, each one more tragic than the last;
3) the series lasts for 10+ years, getting stranger (and not in a good way) each season, until we could care less [sic] what happens.

Gailr, you took the words right out of my head, I would have said mouth, but if it were my mouth, then I would have the wherewithal to have worded it myself to begin with. Things get scrambled from brian to fingers sometimes.
I am surprised to see this many people like watching Eureka. Usualy, If I like it, it's fate is doomed. Eureka reminds me of a George Burns quote, "I spent a year in that town, one Sunday." You know how things go around there, so who knows.
