37 One-Season Wonders That Didn’t Deserve Their Premature Cancellations
Standoff premiered on Fox in September 2006 and focused on an FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit whose job was to negotiate hostage situations. The show was doomed from the getgo, losing over half of its viewers after the pilot. Still, Fox ordered another six episodes of the series in November. Things started looking bad when the show was put on hiatus in December 2006 and its return date pushed back three times. When it finally came back, the show was moved to the graveyard Friday night time slot, before being canceled in May 2007.
