28 TV Shows Canceled After 1 Episode

If a TV show is so bad that it is cancelled after one episode, you have to wonder how it ever got that far. Here's a sampling:

7. Co-Ed Fever (1979)

The CBS sitcom attempted to capture the success of Animal House but failed to attract viewers. Even though it only aired one episode, TV Guide named it one of the ’50 Worst Shows Of All Time.’

12. Heil Honey I’m Home! (1990)

The British sitcom focused on Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun, who lived next to a Jewish couple. The lack of laughs got the show axed before anyone could say Lehem.

25. The Rich List (2006)

The game show was adapted from a U.K. version during which people competed at naming the most ABBA songs.

I really enjoyed that show (Black Donnellys). Paul Haggis directed both the pilot and the first episode, thereafter other people directed the episodes. This has struck me as a mistake, at least until the show has established a solid fanbase. Shows need the continuity of the vision of just one or two people at first. Perhaps Haggis didn't want to wear that many hats. Wasn't he also head writer?

Once again people banging on about "Heil Honey I'm Home" whilst missing the entire point of it being a pastiche of 50s / 60s US sitcom - many of which were getting re-run repeatedly on satellite channels in the early days here in the UK. The show itself went out on a rival network to Murdoch's Sky which went out of business two decades ago. Its a terrible pilot but that's nothing to do with the characters.
