Shows That Got Cancelled After Just One Episode

Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly and Jack Osbourne

Osbournes Reloaded (2009)

Following the Osbourne family’s hit MTV reality series The Osbournes, this new series was meant to replicate their TV success as a variety show featuring the whole family, including skits, comedy and musical performances. Fox canceled it after just one episode. The premiere episode was cut to 35 minutes, and panned by critics – with one questioning whether it was the worst variety show ever.

“Filmed before an entertainment starved audience (who would still go home hungry) once it was over, it involved audience tricks from kissing a granny to getting a marriage ultimatum from a girlfriend,” the Hartford Courant review reads. Five episodes went unaired.

The Hasselhoffs (2010)

The A&E reality TV series was meant to follow Baywatch star David Hasselhoff in his day-to-day life. Less than a million people tuned in for the back-to-back two episode premiere, and A&E canceled the show a few days later.

“The show followed the former America’s Got Talent judge and Baywatch legend as he guided the music careers of his two daughters, Taylor Ann and Hayley. The first episode aired on Sunday night and drew 718,000 viewers – and viewership for the second installment, which aired on the same night, dropped to 505,000,” People reported at the time. The full series eventually aired in the UK in 2011 on The Biography Channel.
