By and large, those shows which do fail like this are network series (NBC, ABC, Fox, CBS, UPN and The WB) compared to the relative freedom from ratings that Showtime, USA and HBO have.
(Freedom in the sense that with the audience comprised of subscribers who already pay, there is only a need for a certain audience reach for the show to be considered a success. That's not to say a show doesn't need to be successful ratings-wise on a subscription channel, but not to the same extent that many of recent years' many, many one-season-wonders have been. Of course, there are exceptions like Odyssey 5, but cancellation after one season is not the norm.)
Intertesting to see it's got something of a five-year plan. Part of me thinks it could stretch to that, but it's more likely they will answer some of the questions posed sooner rather than later and continue to weave new plots into the tapestry over a longer period. (Audiences like to feel they're getting *something* back year-on-year, even if it's just new hints to the overall picture.)
