Shocked that it did. I was five when this show premiered and help me jesus, I loved it.

Anyhoo, worst one year wonder shows:

Homeboys in Outer Space: Someone was on serious crack to come up with the concept.

That show about Lincoln's Black bulter: Can't think of the title but crap like this isn't funny, it made me want to reach through the T.V and slap the hell out of Chi McBride.

Whoopi: Totally unbelieveable that her straight laced brother would date a "wannabe" ghetto white girl. The Middle Eastern jokes ran it's course and her Bush bashing was totally wrong at the time(didn't this show premiered a few months after 9/11, a time where everybody LOVED Bush?).

Guys Like Us: Bumper Robinson is the kiss of death when it comes to T.V sitcoms.

Minor Adjustments: How did this EVER slip on T.V? That kid's voice was annoying as hell.

That 80's Show: What the hell? This show was clearly about the eighties, like how many eighties trivia can we fit in a 24 minute show? Why didn't they follow The Wonder Years, a show about a family who just HAPPENED to live in the late 60's? BTW: That bisexual character played by one of the sweet valley high twins was sooo typical, thank god for The L Word!

Default The series about...

..."Lincoln's black butler" starring Chi McBride was the infamous and VERY short-lived, "THE SECRET DIARY OF DESMOND PFEIFFER".

A tie between Captain Nice, and It's About Time. Those shows just never did anything for me.

I'd have to say THE FIGHTING NIGHTINGALES, which was a short-lived spinoff of MASH that only had 1 episode, on CBS in 1976. It had the same setting as MASH but it focused on a group of nurses. CBS even showed it right after MASH hoping lightning would strike twice, but it didn't.

Also DELTA HOUSE which was a TV version of the movie NATIONAL LAMPOONS ANIMAL HOUSE which was-and still is-HILARIOUS!
It had some of the same cast and writers as the movie, but it just wasn't the same, in fact it was STUPID!

Also, THE NEW ODD COUPLE, a short-lived attempt to recast THE ODD COUPLE with a mostly black cast. It probably wouldn't have been that bad, exept most of the episodes were remakes of the Ranndall/Klugman show. (I read recently, they did that because of a writers strike)
