Default Spin-offs that were a mistake

Can you think of any spin-offs that shouldn't of happened despite the success of their parent show or movie?

Some I can think of are:

- The Ropers
- Three's A Crowd
- The Golden Palace
- Clueless

I thought The Golden Palace was pretty good. Don Cheadle and Cheech Marin along with the girls kept it interesting for me.

I actually liked "The Ropers", "Three's a Crowd", & "The Golden Palace".

"Clueless" was ok and had its moments but just wasn't as good without Alicia Silverstone.

How about the Living Dolls, which was the spinoff of Who's The Boss? It was the first cancelled show in 1989. Also, a couple of years later Saved By The Bell: The College Years.

The Golden Palace just wasn't the same without Dorothy. I really wanted to love the two-part episode where Dorothy returns, but the direction and writing were very off in the second episode, which ruined the reunion for me. It was as if, suddenly, part way through the production, everyone got stiff, forgot her lines and/or blocking, and no one bothered to try to do another take. That was just odd.

Clueless was quite good, at least for a while.

Three's a Crowd was horrible. I can't believe they jettisoned Janet for that waste of videotape they called a spin-off.

LD was bad.

With a little work, SBTB the College Years could have been decent. They needed better writers, but they had a (mostly) likeable cast with good chemistry. Getting Tiffany back was a step in the right direction.
