What happens to a show when it is put in a bad time slot that guarantees it will be preempted by another regularly schedule TV event. The resulting pile of unaired episodes and low ratings then justify its cancellation.

Fox just Futuramaed King of the Hill by moving it to the 7pm slot just in time for football season.
