Television is a wild and wondrous place with new shows being pitched and bought and put into production on an almost daily basis. Within that wonderful circle of celluloid life there is a downside though. Sometimes a show is picked up by a network with the full intention of securing a place on the schedule. Actors, writers and full crews end up being hired and episodes (sometimes multiple episodes!) get filmed that never reach our TV screens. The reasons are varied from network interference to censorship to the final product just being plain old bad. It is that last one that I am going to be focusing on here. I plan to take a look at a few shows that were all geared up and ready to hit the airwaves but got the cancellation bomb dropped on them before they got a chance to see the light of day because they were awful. The reasons for these shows awfulness are varied but the one constant is that these shows didn’t deserve to live. Some of them were seen as blights on society while others were deemed too racy or alarmingly unfunny but they all sucked. And if there is one thing I have discovered I enjoy doing it’s picking at the carcass of the dearly departed in as snarky a manner as I can muster.
