Here are the first 300 shows:
Page Two of TV Hell Click Here
1) SEINFELD (NBC)
Jerry decided that he wanted to move on and ended this sit-com at the height of its popularity. We start here...
2) ELLEN (ABC)
ABC finally cancelled this sit-com starring comedian Ellen Degeneres after years of low ratings. The show had a brief popularity spike
when the star 'came out of the closet' on the show and in her personal life.
3) KEENAN IVORY WAYANS (syndicated)
This late night talk show just couldn't keep up with urban rival "Sinbad". The fish tank reminded me of the short lived Chevy Chase show, now the ending does too.
4) MAD ABOUT YOU (NBC)
Long running sit-com about marriage in the 90's. Starred Paul Riser and Helen Hunt. Series Finale 5/24/99.
5) THE GAYLE KING SHOW (Syndicated)
Daytime talker was canned due to low ratings as of April '98.
6) GERALDO (Syndicated)
The tacky talkers' day time talk show ended in fall '98. Now Geraldo is trying his hand at serious reporting.
7) BROOKLYN SOUTH (CBS)
I hate these cheesy NYC cop shows anyway. No loss, you can still see Tony on NYPD Blue or Law and Order or whatever un-original NY cop show is on.
No loss, see above.
9)FOUR CORNERS (CBS)
This show lasted (are you ready for this?) four episodes!
A bad show based on a pretty dumb movie.
American show based on the UK show of the same name - About an alcoholic womanizer psychologist that helps the police solve tough crimes.
This show was a based on the Sandra Bollock movie at the same name.
13) TOTAL SECURITY (ABC)
Created by TV vet Steven Bocho, this show about a security agency ('Rent-A-Cops') starred James Belushi. Cancelled in 2 months.
14) 413 HOPE STREET (FOX)
About crisis center that caters to inner city youth and their families.
15) THE VISITOR (FOX)
John Corbett starred as an alien obductee returning to Earth to prevent Armageddon. Lasted 1 season.
16) SLEEPWALKERS (NBC)
A doctor can enter the dreams of psychiatric patients to discover what their problems are and how to make them better.
17)NOTHING SACRED (ABC)
Even all the controvercial religious stuff couldn't draw viewers, they must have all been in church.
18) SIGNIFICANT OTHERS (FOX)
FOX cancelled this show before they even promoted it, so it seems.
19)THE MAJIC HOUR (NBC)
This show never had a chance. Majic Johnson might be a great basketball player and a nice guy, but he just wasn't a good talk show host. The show was cancelled after a short time on the air due to low ratings.
20)MURPHY BROWN (CBS)
This show was always kind of dull. It's amazing that Murphy lasted this long. Proof that Washington D.C. can't even produce a funny sit-com!
21) THE LATE LATE SHOW with TOM SNYDER(CBS)
The Late Late Show will go on without Tom Snyder, so only Tom Snyder is really in Hell. The replacement for Snyder is former "Daily Show" host Craig Kilbourne.
22)THE SENTINEL (UPN)
A fantasy series about a cop (Richard Burgi) with enhanced, hypersensitive senses. Lasted 65 episodes.
23)Beavis and Butt-Head (MTV)
Love them or hate them, BB changed animation and paved the way for dozens of foul mouthed cartoon heroes.
24) THE PUBLIC EYE with BRYANT GUMBEL (CBS)
I think that these prime time news shows are way too plentiful. It never had a chance.
25)THE CLOSER (CBS)
Not even ex-"Magnum P.I." star Tom Selleck could save this show.
26)MICHAEL HAYES (CBS)
Former "NYPD Blue" star David Caruso's comeback didn't happen.
27)GEORGE AND LEO (CBS)
I liked this show. It was burried in a bad time slot. Bob Newhart and Judd Hirsch appeal to an older crowd that simply doesn't stay up late.
28) CYBILL (CBS)
The U.S. version of "Absolutely Fabulous" was not as funny as the British show, but not a bad show.
29) DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN (CBS)
Even though Jane Seymore is popular, this show wasn't. Pretty people in the wild west, yea, ok. The folks in the retirement home are gonna be pissed!
30) MAGNIFICENT SEVEN
(CBS) Starred Ron Pealman. Seven men protect a Western town from bad guys while each deals with his own past mistakes and inner problems. Lasted 1 season.
31) SOUL MAN (ABC)
The show got dropped by ABC, than UPN ordered 40 episodes, than star Dan Aykroyd decided that he didn't want to do the show anymore. The rest of the cast must be real happy with him......
32) PRIME TIME LIVE (ABC)
There are too many prime time news mags out there. This one premiered in 1989 and was hosted by Dianne Sawyer, making it one of the heavies to go down.
33) PICTIONARY (Syndicated)
This game show starring Alan Thicke was not renewed due to low ratings. I thought it was kind of a dull show.
34) THE CHARLES GRODIN SHOW (CNBC)
Charles Grodin was a decent actor - but a lousy talk show host. I'm amazed that the show lasted this long. MSNBC will air The Charles Grodin Show on weekends.
35) VIBE (Syndicated)
Not even the firing of original host Chris Spencer and addition of new host Sinbad - could save Vibe. Didn't anyone learn from Arsineo Hall? The last "Vibe" aired September 11, 1998.
"Costello" was the first cancellation of the Fall 1998 season! I found the show to be annoying, mainly the lead character. The phony Boston accents were bad too.
37) GETTING PERSONAL (FOX)
I never saw this show starring John Cryer.
38) DAMON (FOX)
I didn't dislike this show, but it didn't live up to my expectations. Not nearly as funny as "In Living Color".
39) THE BRIAN BENBEN SHOW (CBS)
Brian was a lot funnier on HBO's "Dream On", but this show was a lame Mary Tyler Moore type remake.....just tired.
40) MERCY POINT (UPN)
"Deep Space Nine" meets "ER". It didn't work. UPN didn't give the show any time, and time is the key in most sci-fi's.
41) THE SECRET DIARY OF DESMOND PFEIFFER (UPN)
All the controversy couldn't save this turkey. My vote for the worst show of the year.
42) TRINITY (NBC)
The show about an Irish family in Hell's Kitchen in NYC had low ratings, even for a Friday night.
43) ENCORE, ENCORE (NBC)
This expansion of the Fraser idea on goofy snobbs (starring "The Birdcage's" Nathan Lane) was more annoying than funny.
44) THE SECRET LIVES OF MEN (ABC)
It couldn't hold onto the "Drew Carry" lead in.
45) FANTASY ISLAND (ABC)
This updated and darker version of the original failed to get ratings.
46) CONRAD BLOOM (NBC)
Yet another single 20-something guy sitcom here in Hell.
47) HOME IMPROVEMENT (ABC)
'Nothing worse than a stale show, eight seasons is more than enough!
48) NEWSRADIO (NBC)
It's amazing a show this low rated could last this long! After Phil Harman died, John Lovitz came in and stunk up the place.
49) MELROSE PLACE (FOX)
Finally! One of the worst shows ever made has been cancelled! Fox will be having a series finale sometime in May 1999.
50) DiRESTA (UPN)
Shows about half wit New Yorkers are getting a bit tired. Holds the record for the lowest rated show of all time!
51) SILK STALKINGS (USA)
The longest running cable show has called it quits. Most people didn't even know that it was still on!
52) BRIMSTONE (FOX)
They changed the name from Hollyweird, but the show was still Hollybad!
53) LATELINE (NBC)
It was gone, then back as a mid season replacement, now its gone again! Actually a pretty funny show.
54) STRANGE WORLD (ABC)
Never heard of it. Great PR guys!
55) HERCULES: The Legendary Journeys (Syndicated)
This show was doing ok, but the star of the show (Hercules) quit - forcing the end of the hour long action series.
56) HOWIE MANDEL (Syndicated / Paramount)
A terrible daytime talk show. Canned due to low ratings, big surprise!
57) MR. SHOW (HBO)
HBO moved MR Show from Fridays to Mondays, and then off the schedual. Mr. Show only had a small cult level following.
58) LEGACY (UPN)
The drama set in the wild west rode off into the sunset....
59) HIGHLANDER (Syndicated)
"Immortals" fighting it out. Main character was Duncan MacLeod, a 400 year old born in Scotland.
60) HARD COPY (Syndicated / Paramount)
The one-time king of tabloid trash TV gets canned. New talent and set in its last year couldn't return the ratings! They really missed O.J.!

Soaps don't get cancelled too often, this one has been a staple of NBC daytime for many years.
62) HOMICIDE (NBC)
After seven seasons this award winning cop show gets canned. One of the only cop shows out there that wasn't based in NY! Now what does Baltimore have?
63) CAROLINE IN THE CITY (NBC)
This show wasn't horrible when it started out, but it transformed into a soap opera from a sit-com - and tanked!
64) MILENNIUM (FOX)
This creepy show was well acted and had unusual story lines. Now you can catch Frank Black in re-runs on F/X.

The copy of "Married With Children" got cancelled due to low ratings.
66) Sunset Beach (NBC)
This Aaron Spelling Daytime sex-fest was cancelled due to low ratings.

This much hyped "edgy" show was supposed to deliver huge ratings for FOX.....it didn't.
77) It's Like, You Know (ABC)
This Los Angeles version of "Seinfeld" got canned due to three things: 1) Lack of Ratings, 2) ABC needed to make room for it's hot game show "Who wants to be a millionaire", and 3) Lack of originality!
78) Oh, Grow Up (ABC)
Cancelled the same day as "It's like, you know", "Oh, Grow Up" was said to be canned to also make room in the ABC schedule for it's game show.
79) Ally (FOX)
The re-tooled re-runs of "Ally McBeal" was a big cop out of a show, and luckilly the ratings proved it.

81) Sports Night (ABC)
