Ooooooooh. Up until 2006, this show was the lowest-rated primetime TV show in history.

In fact it was partially b/c of the XFL that Vince McMahon not only embarassed himself and lost millions but it was one of several factors in addition to the lawsuit to the World Wildlife Fund that led to the change from WWF to WWE.

I believe it was The One on ABC, and then High School Musical: Get in the Picture on ABC, but I could be wrong.

Thanks! I guess in the case of The One, only one person was watching.

I thought the biggest mistake NBC made with the XFL was using Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler on the backup games. The interesting thing is that Lawler never played football. If i was Dick Ebersol or Vince McMahon, i'd would have gotten a former player to work with Ross on the backup games.

Perhaps NBC's biggest disaster was the 1983-84 season with it's "Be There" campaign. EVERY new show that premiered in the Fall was cancelled in mid-season!

1978-79 was just as bad. None of the new shows saw a season 2.
