I have no problem watching a show for as long as it lasts, and lately the shows that have been getting cancelled deserve it, like V, which was disappointing junk. But if cancellations bother you, watch more cable shows. The expectations at lower and odds of survival therefore higher. There are a few broadcast shows I still follow, like Once Upon a Time and Grimm, but I've decided that being up on the new shows isn't worth the cable bill, so I'm switching to Roku/Netflix after the Olympics finish, so ironically that will mean I wont see any new shows till I know whether they got renewed anyway. Ethros- you should check out Falling Skies S2' it's a definite improvement over S1. Danoz - I thought Awake's ending served very well as an intentional ending, as though it had always been intended as a miniseries so try watching it in that spirit.
