I have to say I agree with you when it comes to the behind-the-scenes employment on shows. It's an uncertain business they're all in, and yet plenty of people walk away from ongoing shows, whether actors or behind-the-camera folk, because they think they'll have better opportunities elsewhere or simply because they're tired of the project. So the idea that fans should feel obligated to feel any particular way about it for their sakes seems silly.

What that train of thought leads me to wonder though, is whether or not the quality of a show's ending (or indeed, even the unexpectedness of it) affects the long-term income of the series. While most people on a show don't profit much, if at all, from a show's longevity, some do. One could argue that many in the cast of Firefly did just as well from the series being cancelled in the middle of its first season as if they had gone on for many seasons. No one can predict the future and it might be brighter just as much as it might be dimmer.
