My Theory On TV-Show Longevity

I believe if the people behind a show only plan for it to be on-air for 1-to-3 seasons it will last longer. Why, because like British television, they'll just be concerned about making awesome episodes and not trying to stretch things out to keep the cash cow going. Knowing you have only 15-to-45 episodes to tell your story will lead to good plots and better characterization, leading fans to want to see more.

Then you can sell out and do crazy shit like time travel and magic (assuming that wasn't part of the cannon early on).
