Join us as we discuss several television series that flopped before they could even get noticed. Every show that we'll be discussing in this video got canceled after airing just one measly episode. Can you imagine being a television producer or actor and investing so much time and effort into a project only for it to be grounded almost immediately after takeoff?
Granted, it's pretty rare for a show to be immediately canceled and there are normally extenuating circumstances involved behind-the-scenes that lead to such abrupt action. Shows can get the boot so early on in their run because of factors such as receiving extremely negative critical responses, poor ratings, controversial subject material, or sometimes even offset scandals.
You won't believe how awful some of these one-off failures actually were. But, to be fair, some of them were actually received well by critics when they first hit the airwaves. Sometimes a show can get canceled just for being aired in the wrong time slot while other times, world events get in the way and capture viewers' attention leading to a show performing worse than can be expected int eh rating department.
