Thirteen episodes were made but only three were aired in the USA. The show came under fire from religious groups, nine NBC affiliates refused to air the show in prime time (reruns of "F·r·i·e·n·d·s" were substituted in its place; several affiliates offered to air the show late night but NBC declined), promotion was minimal and, after the debut, ratings were minuscule so NBC canceled the series less than two weeks after it premiered.

I'm religious and I love this programme. That is my first point, just to make clear that people who say this is bad are wrong.
Okay I was forced to watch it against my choice and now I am so glad. It is hysterically funny and very well written. Alan Cumming as the devil is by far the greatest cartoon character (not including anything from the simpsons) and is the best portrayal of the devil I have seen upon the screen. Ever. This show not only has wit, farce, brilliant scripting but morals and style. It is NOT saying anything bad against religion at all and really makes you feel good about yourself.
I am very upset, so America dropped it due to religious folk complaining and here in Britain we got the whole series BUT due to it being an American cartoon it didn't really take off. Yes it is an acquired taste but take the time and you'll be hooked too.
Funny is too bland a word for this show. It is BRILLIANT.
