Hey now, TNG wasn't cancelled.
It probably wouldn't have been even if they would have made an eigth season which the actors were contracted for. Too bad the producers decided to end it and focus on the movies. It would be interesting to see how long they could go on before being cancelled. Who knows? Considering that the show was still as popular as ever by season 7, it wouldn't surprise me if they would have managed to make it to a 9th season.
And yes, Enterprise is the first show since the original to be cancelled. Though, I don't think it's fair comparing the television industry of the late 60s to the industry of the 90s and 00s.
