As mentioned in a reply to the last post, I was going to do the top 5 worst shows ever. But since they're really barely worth the space they are typed in, I'm going to do shows that didn't get a fair shake. Feel free to add to it, but I've researched this pretty extensively. They are in no particular order:
Greg the Bunny
Get a Life (in the words of Artie Lange, "If I controlled television, Chris Elliott would be a superstar and Get a Life would be in it's 13th season).
In Living Color
Jesse (Amazing season 1, awful season 2).
Mr. Show (I never got into it, but trusted friends loved it)
Titus (Never saw it, but everyone raves)
Gumble 2 Gumble (just seeing if the Family Guy fans were paying attention)
Star Trek (pretty amazing, considering what it has become)
Clerks: The Animated Series
Freaks and Geeks
I suppose you could also include Chappelle's Show here, but he cancelled it--not the networks. Also, I responded in the previous post that Freaks and Geeks (which would still be on if it was put in any timeslot EXCEPT Friday nights) was the only show I ever liked that took place in a high school. I was wrong. How could I forget Parker Lewis Can't Lose? Sure, it was a cheap rip-off of Ferris Bueller, but it was well written.
I started to dig for more gold at this site, but the 2nd show they mentioned was Saved by the Bell: The College Years. Talk about instantly killing all credibility.
Anyway, that's my list of stuff that was canned that probably shouldn't have been. I'll let the rest of you chime in with your two cents. Please try to keep in mind that 'cancelled' and 'ended' are two different things. Shows that run their course don't count, like the Cosby Show or Seinfeld.
