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.

A show with great potential that was cut down before it's prime.
This show had a lot going for it. Great voice talent, the leads are all quite well known (although Allen Cumming only recently for his role as Nightcrawler in X-2) a smart premise, and hilarious writing. I've been reading a lot of the other comments on this board and a lot of them tend to blame Americans (not with any real hostility mind you) for the show getting canceled. I have to say that as an American I was very disappointed when it was cut. Here in the states we only got to see one episode before it was yanked from the air waves. My only hope is that some day soon it will follow in the foot steps of Family Guy and be put on DVD so that every one here in the Sates can enjoy it finally.
In the mean time, I plan on checking for it with Kazaa.
