* ''The Paul Reiser Show'' promptly bombed as soon as it aired, and NBC cancelled it after two episodes. Considering he has done nothing noteworthy since ''Series/MadAboutYou'' came to an end over a decade ago, this appeared to signal the end of Paul Reiser's on-screen career. However, he seems to have quietly regained some viability as a supporting actor in various films and TV, projects, appearing in ''Film/BehindTheCandelabra'', ''Film/{{Whiplash}}'', and ''Film/{{Concussion}}''. Additionally, a recurring role in the TV Show ''Married'' earned some critical acclaim for him particularly.

Considering he has done nothing noteworthy since ''Series/MadAboutYou'' came to an end over a decade ago, this likely signals the end of Paul Reiser's on-screen career. He appeared in ''Film/BehindTheCandelabra'', but given that that was an HBO biopic about a gay relationship (which puts it "outside the mainstream"), it's unlikely to provide a CareerResurrection. However, a recurring role in the TV Show ''Married'' earned him some critical acclaim, so there is the possibility for him to regain some strength as a supporting actor.

* While ''{{Series/Charmed}}'' itself was a significant hit, the derailing came from Shannen Doherty's high profile exit after the third season. Having been a respectable TV star in the 80s and 90s, she was notably dismissed from ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'' due to tension between her and other cast members. Similar stories surfaced on the ''Charmed'' set, with TW King leaving after Season 1 - rumoured to be because Shannen Doherty didn't like him (though other sources say he asked for more screentime and was just cut). Doherty left the show very publicly after a feud with co-star Alyssa Milano, to the point where she allegedly said "either she goes or I do". The fact that she had been fired from a second hit show after fighting with cast members hurt her reputation, as did her subsequent refusal to allow ''Charmed'' to use any archive footage or pictures of her - even taking it longer for the first three seasons to come out on DVD as a result. She turned to reality TV project and TV movies, but never with the high profile she once enjoyed.

* Amber Heard had a lot of buzz about her movie career, reaching its height when she beat actresses like Creator/ScarlettJohansson and Creator/KeiraKnightley for the role of Johnny Depp's LoveInterest in ''Film/TheRumDiary'', which flopped at the box office. Then she starred in the dreadful flop TV show ''Series/ThePlayboyClub'', and her buzz was all but killed overnight. Heard's next few films like ''Film/{{Paranoia|2013}}'' and ''Film/ThreeDaysToKill'' were critical and box office letdowns, and it seems most likely that her career won't reach new heights after that.

** Inverted with Creator/SoichiroHoshi; while ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' sold well and his character [[PopularityPower remained quite popular in the Newtype rankings]], the negative reputation the anime had sunk his career to role reprisals and being notably absent from many big name anime series that his fellow voice actors have taken roles in.

* Creator/JayMohr was billed as a rising star in the late '90s, playing memorable roles in movies such as ''Film/JerryMaguire'' and ''Film/PicturePerfect'', as well as having a recurring role on TheJeffFoxworthyShow. ''Series/{{Action}}'' was meant to be his ultimate catalyst into fame, but it was panned by critics and burned out after one season (later VindicatedByCable and has since become a CultClassic). Since then, he's only managed supporting roles and TV shows that either were low-rated or short-lived.

* Rob Schneider of all people (known best for playing bit parts in Happy Madison movies and/or leading in ridiculous ripe-for-parody comedies ([[Series/SouthPark "Rob Schneider is:]] ''[[Series/SouthPark A Carrot!"]]'')) headlined a sitcom for CBS aptly titled ''Rob'', where he played a milquetoast white guy married to a SaucyLatina stereotype (and both lived with her family.) It didn't last a full season and ''no one'' from the show, except for Eugenio Derbez, who would go on to star in the sleeper hit, ''Film/InstructionsNotIncluded'', has been seen since.
