The wonderful world of television is a vibrant hub of creativity, but with so many programs released every year, it can be easy to forget about the ghosts of productions past. These days, we have access to thousands of shows at the click of a button, but rewind a few decades and there were fewer choices.
Back in the day, NBC, CBS and ABC were some of the biggest networks of the era (and they still are today). For sitcoms, the premise of these forgotten shows was pretty much the same as we see today; the same goes for police dramas and thrillers. Though humor and values may have changed, networks have kept pace as the years go on.
Networks competed ruthlessly against each other to try and come up with the next hit program, but it didn’t always work out. This led to a stream of short-lived series that didn’t last long, and some that simply faded into the ether after they ceased production. Let’s take a look through the archives to see some titles long since forgotten.
