The other kind of underrated

"Free Agents" and "H8R," we hardly knew ye. And "Cops" and "48 Hours Mystery," apparently we've known you a little too long.<br>
<br>
Quickly canceled shows and ones that have hung on for years populate Zap2it's fifth annual least-watched fall shows list. As we've done in the past, we've compiled a list not strictly of the Bottom 25 shows but of the lowest-rated series by network. So, sorry, "The Amazing Race" and "CSI: NY" -- you may be Top 40 shows overall, but because you're on CBS you're included on this list.<br>
<br>
Per usual, this list takes into account only regularly scheduled airings of first run shows on the five English-language networks (schedule-filling "encores" and Saturday-night repeats aren't counted) -- there have been 97 such shows in fall 2011. The five least-watched series (through Dec. 18; all ratings numbers courtesy of Nielsen) on each network follow, ranked from smallest number of viewers to largest.<br>
