2. Ricky – THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY
Don’t ya just want to pop that kid one in the chops? How could a 5 year old generate such a smug air of douchiness? It’s amazing to behold. Well, in the final season of THE PARTIDGE FAMILY it was decided that adding a precocious little neighbor child to the show who would be given a solo song every week was what the show needed to survive. This struck me as odd considering the fact that the show had two children of around that age in the cast from the beginning in Chris and Tracey Partridge who probably didn’t have more than 5 lines combined in the entire run of the show. And to make matters worse the little demon couldn’t sing worth a damn either. So the producers of the show realized their mistake after a few episodes but the damage was done and THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY was summarily canceled not long after Ricky got the boot.
