It failed because the first season wasn't as "good" as the second one. That and musical montages.

The first half of season 1 wasn't doing them any favors when it was the completely formulaic crisis in space episodes. Every one of the beginning episodes was "The crew runs out of X" which, along with the musical montages, got really old fast. I stopped watching at the 2-parter because it was just getting silly.

I came back later when they tried telling a little less predictable story, and the show was a lot better. Those first episodes were extremely boring to me though.

Well the season 1 formula was pretty terrible so there's that.

I mean having the ship just up and save everyone is such a copout and they used it so much. And the stones were just the worst plot device I have ever seen in television.

I didn't think the formula was so terrible, as much as it was the ONLY formula for too long. I've never actually watched the other Stargates either, so I had no expectations going into this. The problem was just that the crises got to be old; everybody knows they're not going to kill major characters, and the crew isn't all going to die, so throwing these emergencies at us week after week when we know in the end everyone will be fine was just boring.
