Adam Sternbergh, of New York Magazine, examines the direction in which television might be heading. And he uses a Firefly hypothetical to illustrate the possibilities for the medium.
Sternbergh (who saw the movie and "liked it a lot" and then bought the series and "liked it a lot") uses as an example of his thesis the notion of Joss finding one million people "who were willing to pay, say, $39.99 each for a sixteen-episode season."
The entire article is worth reading, and to be fair I've linked to its beginning. The hypothetical he uses to illustrate his point is on page three.
