Well, I can't disagree about "Square Pegs"; I loved that show and was sad to hear it wouldn't come back for another season, back when I was in high school. And I fondly remember "Baby, I'm Back". I saw "Occasional Wife" when Comedy Central aired it a few years back but didn't think it was all that special. If NBC had to choose between it and "Jeannie," they made the right choice, but that's just my humble opinion.

But here's one I have not seen mentioned that I fondly remember from Sunday nites in 1978...and often wondered why it never made it, since its lead in was "All in The Family": "On Our Own", with Lyn Greene and Bess Armstrong. It also featured Dixie Carter and Holland Taylor...a great cast and had a catchy theme song. The funniest episode was when the two main characters were somehow working in a doughnut shop and they got into an argument and sprayed each other with jelly filling. The Great Sitcom Book says it was "better written than most of its contemporaries but that ratings were not high enough to warrant it a success." Does anyone else remember this one?

Another one-year wonder that I fondly remembered from childhood was "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." I was very excited when it finally came out on DVD...but after watching it as an adult, I can see now it was not as good as I remembered it being.

And while it wasn't a one-year wonder...there is one sitcom that ran for two seasons that I used to love watching in reruns with my grandmother: "The Mothers-In-Law", with Eve Arden and Kaye Ballard. I was fortunate enough to find a VHS release of 16 episodes of this show on EBAY a few years ago.
A number of people also fondly remember this rarely-seen-today sitcom; I wonder if it'll ever see the light of day in DVD format.

I'd have to say definitely Freaks and Geeks and My So Called Life.

Also, anyone remember the UPN show years back called 'Legacy'? I don't know why but I totally dug that show, obviously not many others did lol
