* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Or more specifically, screwed by AaronSpelling. Spelling, who was the creative force behind ''Series/MelrosePlace'' and ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'', was rumored for years to have been the one who pushed Fox to cancel the show. The story goes, Spelling was terrified that Profit might threaten his soap opera juggernaut ''Melrose Place'', which was the lead-in show for ''Profit''. A fear that was said to have came about in part, due to Time Magazine praising the show in a review of the pilot while mercilessly slagging ''Melrose Place'' as being "romper room" compared to the more complex and less campy ''Profit''.
