It's off-air because 99.9% of TV shows don't get 8 seasons. 3 is much, much more then usual, especially for a show like AD.

It doesn't help AD's case that people on the internet constantly misuse the jokes and try to quote it

Arrested Development is no longer on the air because the jokes are for smart people and there aren't enough smart people watching network television to make the economics work.

Arrested Development had to be marketed pretty poorly or something too. I didn't watch it while it was on but its incredible. Lots of my friends have never heard it but when I get them to watch it they say its one of their favorite comedies ever.

It doesn't help that the show sucks too.

Oops I already trolled Ad yesterday apparently.

Never hurts to reiterate how bad it is.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, RadioHeadBlog and Forum Discussion

it didn't work because you have to watch every episode to get all of the jokes, and that's a commitment people weren't willing to make. 3 seasons is still a lot, and probably close to optimal.

I think Community falls into this same problem, but luckily NBC is so desperate that they'll probably be able to get 4 seasons.

The one positive about turning this thread into an Arrested Development thread is at least it's not a stupid ****ing Radiohead thread anymore.

Community doesn't have this problem. AD sets up jokes like 4 episodes in advance (see the Arm Off pic above). Even watching AD weekly it is tough to have the memory required to get all the jokes in AD. It is really the perfect show to grind through on DVD because your memory is fresh enough to get all the jokes.

This is the narrative that people generally bring up, but imo the more true narrative is. FOX realized AD was great, they also realized it was getting ****ty ratings so they kept shuffling it around in an attempt to somehow make it a hit, but it never worked.
