* ''Seires/JakeInProgress'' ran for two seasons on ABC. However no reruns, no YouTube videos, no DVD, it's a show that's been forgotten.

* The TV show ''Lime Street'' (1985), starring Robert Wagner. Only five episodes were aired (according to ThatOtherWiki three more unaired episodes were aired on Lifetime in 1987), and competition with NBC's ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' and ''227'' seriously harmed its ratings and made it even harder to come by. Only one full episode can be found on Website/YouTube. And don't expect it on DVD anytime soon as Wagner himself doesn't want it released (keep in mind this was not necessarily due to the show being an OldShame for him, but out of respect due to the premature death of teenage Samantha Smith, who played Wagner's daughter on the show, in a plane crash after completing several episodes, forcing the show's demise).

** According to ThatOtherWiki, the only episode to get a video release was "Bad Timing" (the one where the older son, played by Creator/JasonBateman, and his GirlOfTheWeek contemplate having sex[[note]]it marked the first primetime usage of the word "condom" and was preceded with ContentWarnings suggesting that younger viewers watch with their parents - and this was back in 1987[[/note]]), released "especially for teachers and health educators to use as a tool to promote safe sex"; nowadays even ''that'' can't be found on [=eBay=].

* ''Series/LambChopsPlayAlong'' is in a music rights nightmare, which explains the lack of ''any'' DVD releases. During its PBS run, however, select segments of the series were released on home video by [=A&M=] Video, but never any complete episodes, and said VHS tapes are now rare to come across. The last time the series aired in its entirety was on the PBJ network in 2016, shortly before series owner [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation [=DreamWorks=] Classics]] was taken over by [=NBCUniversal=]. One has to hope [=NBCU=] has the money to secure all the song rights for a proper DVD release.

* ''[[Series/FullColorFootball Full Color Football: The History of The American Football League]]'', a five part {{Showtime}}/NFL Films produced documentary, has yet to be released on DVD (though the NFL Network runs the occasional rerun). WarnerBrothers owns the rights, but seems to be sitting on the title despite strong fan demand.

** Segments from the Craig Kilborn era are non-existent, either on the website or on DVD. It's likely that the network's OldShame toward this run of the series has kept it from ever resurfacing (aside from brief flashbacks shown on Stewart-era episodes). Comedy Central's website [[UnPerson doesn't even acknowledge Kilborn's stint at all]]. On a episode of ''The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'' where Colbert reunited his fellow correspondents, Stewart noted Colbert was on the show before him with Kilborn. Colbert noted the tapes of that era are impossible to find, and went on to say to Jon Stewart that there is no proof the ''Daily Show'' existed before he got there.

* ''Series/PopUpVideo'' is presumably stymied by music rights issues (although it saw one VHS / DVD compilation release in 1999). A select few videos can be found on VH1's website and Website/YouTube. All the full reruns still air on VH1 Classic, but unless you have a higher-tier satellite package, you likely won't see the show's complete run ever again.
** Speaking of VH1: any ''[[ILoveTheExties I Love the _____]]'' series. More movie, television, and music clip rights issues than you can shake a stick at. The decade-based series were often rerun up through 2009, but ''I Love Toys'' (2006) wasn't so lucky, and the 90-minute ''I Love the Holidays'' special only ran a few times in 2005. Good luck finding either of them in full, in ''any'' format (not even trading websites have them circulated).
** ''Behind the Music'' only had a handful of VHS/DVD releases, and music rights issues make them unlikely to show up again. VH1 Classic reruns many of the more popular episodes, often in "remastered" versions which add relevant events which happened to the artist(s) since the original airings, but others seem to be lost forever (such as those chronicling a certain ''year'' in popular music, or one that looked at the final days of Music/JohnLennon).

** A lot of 1970s and '80s episodes of "American Bandstand" (as well as a few from the 1960s) were reaired briefly on VH1 in the mid - late 1990s, completely uncut and with all its original music. You're pretty much guaranteed to find that any YouTube uploads of "American Bandstand" performances from the '70s and early '80s will come from those repeats. Why VH1 were allowed to rerun those episodes uncut is a question only the late Dick Clark could've answered.
