* Steve Whitmire's gig as Kermit the Frog ended following the failure of ''Series/TheMuppets''; he was told as early as the next October that his days as everyone's favorite green frog were numbered, and he was finally handed his walking papers the next July.

* 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'' at the end of the fourth season due to tension between her and other cast members. Similar stories surfaced on the ''Charmed'' set, with T. W. King leaving after Season 1 -- rumoured to be because Doherty didn't like him (though other sources say he asked for more screentime and was just cut). Doherty herself 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 earned her a reputation as [[ThePrimaDonna a diva]], as did her subsequent refusal to allow ''Charmed'' to use any archive footage or pictures of her -- which meant that [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes it took until 2005]] for the first three seasons to come out on DVD. She turned to RealityTV projects and TV movies, but never with the high profile she once enjoyed.

* Rob Schneider of all people (known best for playing bit parts in Happy Madison movies and/or leading in ridiculous ripe-for-parody comedies ([[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Rob Schneider is:]] ''[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark A Carrot!"]]'')) headlined a sitcom for CBS aptly titled ''Rob'', where he played a milquetoast white guy married to a SpicyLatina stereotype (and both lived with her family.) It didn't last a full season and ''no one'' from the show, except for Creator/EugenioDerbez, who would go on to star in the sleeper hit ''Film/InstructionsNotIncluded'' and is still iconic in his native Mexico, has been seen since. Schneider later dug himself deeper with 2016's animated bomb ''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth''.

* ''Series/SexAndDrugsAndRockAndRoll'' seems to have killed the career of Creator/DenisLeary, in addition to other shows he produced that didn't do well like ''Series/{{Sirens}}'' and ''Series/{{Benders}}''. Since that show's cancellation, as well as [[WesternAnimation/IceAge "Ice Age: Collision Course"]] bombing at the box office, he doesn't have any projects slated for the future, when it comes to either acting or producing.
