Either the mainstream isn't interested or the network never even gives it a chance to build an audience (usual [[http://www.reallifecomics.com/comic.php?comic=title-1940-2 translation]]: it's on Creator/{{FOX}})... or it's created by [[TheTimReaper Tim Minear]], Creator/JuddApatow, Creator/BryanFuller, or Creator/JossWhedon. Or the creator [[CreatorBreakdown buckles under the growing pressure to keep making high-quality installments.]] Sometimes, someone high up at the network takes a dislike to the show and [[ScrewedByTheNetwork does everything in his power to kill it.]] Other times [[NetworkDecay the network doesn't think it fits in]] If the show is lucky enough to be shown on a cable network in reruns, it may build up a bigger following there than it ever had in its first run.

* ''Series/TheFamousTeddyZ'': Created by ''[[WKRPInCincinnati WKRP]]'''s Hugh Wilson, this series starring Jon Cryer and Alex Rocco (who won an Emmy for his character Agent Al Floss) was set in a Hollywood talent agency and was thought in some circles to be too 'inside' to appeal to middle America.

* ''Series/TheFlash1990'': Based on [[TheFlash the comic book character of the same name]], this series got canceled after one season due to being constantly shuffled around in varying time slots and facing tough competition from NBC and FOX on Thursday nights. CBS even tried airing it at 8:30 Eastern Time (it's unusual in the U.S. for an hour-long show to begin on the half-four) to avoid having it on directly against [[TheCosbyShow]] and [[TheSimpsons]], which both aired at 8.

* A promotion with the financial backing of Ted Turner and many of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Unfortunately half of those wrestlers were a combination of foreigners and cruiserweights whom booking had little interest in. Turner hired many men who knew little about the business and thus squandered the drawing power of Wrestling/RicFlair and fell from what should have been the oldest tricks in the book from the likes of Wrestling/HonkyTonkMan and especially Wrestling/HulkHogan. Then Turner's company was bought out by one full of people who didn't just lack understanding of pro wrestling but hated it.
