Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Due to her pregnancy, Linda Hamilton wanted out of the show and was therefore killed off at the end of Season 2. She was replaced by Jo Anderson who played a detective and the new love interest of Vincent. Due to the abrupt drop in the ratings after Hamilton leaving, the show was canceled in the middle of Season 3.
Game of Thrones writer, George R.R. Martin, was a staff writer for all three seasons. In an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, Martin said that he felt the show's best episodes were in the first and second season, where there was relatively little involvement from the network. He said the show's decline was due to the loss of its star, Linda Hamilton, after the second season, increased network interference from CBS, and the rising popularity of Full House (1987), a competitor in its time slot on the ABC network.
