I think Quantum Leap was actually one of the longest-running sci-fi shows on that network. Five seasons is a long time for a show like that to survive on NBC, although they of course did try canceling it in the third season. So the only reason it lasted that long was primarily because of the fans.

I don't know why NBC even keeps trying with sci-fi at all, though. Back in the '80s they dumped a lot of their action shows in favor of sit-coms and it's been the same since, only now Reality TV has come into the picture added with the occasional medical drama. Yet shows like America's Got Talent (or as I call it, Simon Cowell's Paycheck) become number one in the ratings. Go figure.
