Why do studios release bad anime?

Why did Gonzo release Dragonaut? It must have been clear for the management that Dragonaut would flop both critically and in sales way before they relased the show.

The same goes for shows like Moetan and Wagaya no Oinari-sama. Why do studios release them, when they know similar shows have failed hard in sales and TV ratings.

I mean must of us can tell what will sell and what will fail way before releases, so why can't the studios do it?
