A great television show can run for a decade and another fifty years in syndication. Flash a thirty second clip of The Brady Bunch or Happy Days and a majority of us could probably identify damn near every character in the scene. There’s just something about certain television shows that stick with you. But what about the less fortunate offerings? What about the TV shows that never find that longevity? Do our brains bother remembering anything about them, or does that information get shredded and later recycled? Let’s find out.
I’ve put together a list of 10 television shows that premiered just 9 years ago. I will give you a picture, a cast list, an episode count, a premiere date, a network and a basic plot. You try desperately to root through your brain and come up with the show’s name. Some of them were cancelled almost immediately. Some of them got a few seasons, but none are still around.
Are you ready? Then like all of these shows, we’re off (the air)!

People thought this show would rival The West Wing for awhile.
