Now of course the shows I'm talking about aren't critical darlings and rating hits that simply go on for way too long like ER or NYPD Blue. Or good shows that maintain a high standard quality for most of it's run with the exception of a crappy final season. (ie Homicide) No I'm taking about the well-hyped shows that crash and burn after one (or maybe two seasons).
The show that comes to mind that fits this criteria is Commander in Chief, in fact CiC inspired me to create this thread. Everything I read about it suggested it was going take its place alongside Lost, Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy as ABC's newest hit. But now after sagging ratings, several staff shakeups and the customary time slot switch, the show is on a slow, painful march to an early death. So I ask you what other shows in annals of TV have started off with such promise only to crash and burn a short time later.
