Default Poor Things! Actors/Actresses Who Had A Couple Or More Failed Series

Corinne Bohrer--> E/R (1984 series), Free Spirit, Man Of The People, and Partners

McLeon Stevenson--> Hello Larry, Condo, In The Beginning, Dirty Dancing and a few others I know he did, but I can't recall the names.

Jessica Lundy--> The Carol Burnett Show (1991 series), The Second Half and the other sitcom with Alan Thicke around 1995.

Edan Gross--> Sweet Surrender, Free Spirit and Walter And Emily

Ashleigh Blair Sterling--> Family Man and Getting By

Robert Guilluame--> The Robert Guilluame Show and Pacific Station

Joel Murray--> Grand and Pacific Station

Richard Libertini--> The Fanelli Boys and Pacific Station

Cloris Leachman--> The Nutt House, Walter And Emily and Thanks

Ellen Regan--> Me And Mrs. C and 13 East

Some of these people had quite a few under their belt. Its a wonder some of them remained in the business after so many failed TV shows.

Was that off the top of your head, or did you have to look it up?

I looked it up. Most of those shows were listed in the Complete Primetime Television Directory.

What's interesting is that some of her co-stars went on to other successful movie/TV roles.

She also starred in a show called "Oh, Grow Up". It didn't last long.

Fran Drescher had a few flops both before and after "The Nanny":

"Charmed Life" (1986), a spin-off of "Who's The Boss?", it lasted no more than 3-4 episodes; although there is some confusion as to if it ever aired.

"Princesses" (1991), widely considered one of the biggest flops in CBS history.

"Living With Fran" (2005-2007), not very successful.

"Happily Divorced" (2011-2013), cancelled after only 2 seasons.


Judith Light has also starred in some big flops following "Who's The Boss?":

"Phenom" (1993-1994): One season and done on ABC.

"The Simple Life" (1998): As a fictionalized version of Martha Stewart. It lasted about 7 episodes.

"The Stones" (2004): About a couple who decide to divorce.

"Twenty Good Years" (2005-2006): A huge flop. not sure if she was a regular or just a guest star.

"Dallas" (2013-2014, I think): Ultimately got cancelled lasted three seasons; only two of which she was on.

Luckily she's also had some luck as well with shows like "Law & Order: SVU", "Ugly Betty", and "Transparent".

Default Robert Urich

Robert Urich had number of shows that didn't make it past one season.

American Dreamer (I remember liking this)
Tabitha
Gavilan
Love Boat: The Next Wave
Emeril
The Lazarus Man
It Had to be You
Crossroads
Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice

And neither Vega$ nor Spencer For Hire made it to 70 episodes.
