* In 2015, ''Sorci Verdi'' graced the Italian screens for 5 episode between October and November. Its premise was a late night show starring rapper J-Ax, but it did what every late night show ''shouldn't'' do: the satirical skits were very cheap and predictable shots on politics and television, intermixed with bad musical numbers and awkward interviews with [=VIPs=] and various showmen. It ultimately felt like a 90-minute advertisement for other rappers and friends of J-Ax. Today, it's remembered as a television failure that drew very little attention.

* ''Film/CyberSeductionHisSecretLife'' is a Lifetime film about porn addiction. Described as "Reefer Madness for the PC generation" in Rotten Tomatoes. Is so detached from reality and especially from modern teen's culture that several critics pointed out how disconnected the writer should be from the intended audience. It deals with a fourteen year-old high schooler becoming addicted to very ''very'' soft porn on the Internet, that he happens just to have discovered recently and that consists mainly in photos of cleavages. Disregarding the fact that modern Youtube generations would probably see much more hardcore material in PG-13 movies and would know about stronger erotic material on the Internet at much earlier in life, the fact that the character even gets bullied for liking porn (even when this is hardly a reason for bullying among teen-agers, if any ''not'' watching porn is a more likely reason for bullying) to the point of depression and try to commit suicide feels very forced, unsubtle and Anvilicious, for what can be a reasonably interesting topic and a valid concern for parents as porn addiction can be a real problem. Here is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDuD3qwVQhw Ralph the Movie Maker]] take on it and here's [[http://www.somethingawful.com/movie-reviews/cyber-seduction-his/1/ Something Awful's]].

[[AC:Creator/{{UPN}} (United States)]]
* The [=UPN=] ''Series/IronChef'' specials. The idea of an American ''Iron Chef'' wasn't bad; in fact, it would be pulled off successfully later. The biggest difference between the two American ''Chef'' shows? Food Network's version understands and respects the source material while, at the same time, realizing that American viewers were watching mainly for the competitive aspects (the original show's appeal to Japanese audiences, meanwhile, was watching celebrities engaged in the intimate act of eating). The result was a show that's faithful to the original while still going in its own directions. All UPN's people understood was "Wacky foreigners acting like cooking is a sport!", resulting in commentators who paid more attention to the ''cheering studio audience'' than the actual cooking (and who couldn't tell a melonballer from a spork). Just about the only element UPN got right was Creator/WilliamShatner as the LargeHam Chairman, very much in line with Takeshi Kaga's performance.

* ''Series/IHateMyTeenageDaughter'': suffered from an AudienceAlienatingPremise, bad writing, ClicheStorm plots and multiple backlashes from different sources. Even if the title is not taken literal and is not about a mother hating her daughter, was hard to know who was the show aim for as it didn't had the cynical and crude humor of shows like ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' or ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' as the title may suggest making it unattractive for those audiences, and at the same time the premise behind it wasn't attractive for audiences preferring the family-friendly humor of shows like ''Series/FullHouse'' or ''Series/TheMiddle''. MoralGuardians hated it because they saw it as contrary to traditional family values and the more edgy viewers didn't care for the normally {{Anvilicious}} [[AnAesop Aesops]] that the show drops in every single episode. The show suffered from extremely low ratings, was cancel after one season and currently holds 7% in Rotten Tomatoes.
