Here's a cool show that's massively underappreciated: Stella.  It ran for half a season on Comedy Central back in 2005.

The show was based on straightlaced, deadpan absurdism, The three protagonists, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain (actors playing fictionalized versions of themselves, which is always fun) basically collapsed into ridiculousness at the touch of a feather, including a corrupt election for residence board president or writing a novel.

Anyway, the show got poor ratings and was canceled only 10 episodes in.  If that's not enough of a punch in the gut, it was replaced with... Mind of Mencia.  That show was awful.

There are also Stella shorts floating the internet, but in my mind the show was the best part.
