Three’s a Crowd could have worked with a more dynamic female lead. Also, EZ was a ridiculously one-dimensional character, and as good as Robert Mandan was, his character was unlikeable. So John RItter was left to carry the whole thing.

BTW, don’t forget Models, Inc.!

The spin off that stands above the others in this category is:

Mrs. Columbo (the most ill-conceived TV series in history)

Fish

The Ropers (this show might have worked if it had been detailed properly)

Yes. I absolutely hated Vicki (what a drippy character). EZ was a Spicoli rip off, and I loathed Mandan's character more than I did Mr. Angelino.

I disagree completely. The show finally hit its stride when it started exploring class-based prejudices and anticipated the whole Yuppie scum phenomenon that came a short time later.

Beyond Westworld - Missed out on it when it was originally on, I might have liked it back then as a kid, but seeing it more recently, it's dull. The recent HBO series on the other hand is excellent.

AMackII:

First, major shout out, Wow, how many people remember, "Our Private World" (As The World Turns spin off). My mom liked the show.

The Munsters Today, really isn't a spin-off, it's a series re-launch,

Dallas (2012) is a series reboot (although the focus was on different characters to some extent, some of the main actors came back to reprise their roles).

And as you mention Pyramid was a revival which is pretty common with game shows.
