Every network hopes that their next show will be TV’s biggest hit, but the hits are few and far between. It is unfortunately much more common for networks to spend a lot of time and money promoting a show only for it to not be as loved by audiences as they wanted, or even worse flop completely. Here are some of TV’s most anticipated shows that ended up being huge let downs:
12. All American
Over time The CW has become known as the teen drama go-to in terms of networks, but with shows like One Tree Hill, The Vampire Diaries, and Gossip Girl all finished, the network was in desperate need of a similar teen show. It seemed as though it found its answer with All American which seemed like One Tree Hill meets Friday Night Lights meets Beverly Hills, 90210. While the series didn’t fail, it definitely didn’t make headlines or take over television as was hoped.
