* ''Series/OutOfJimmysHead'' got flak for being on Creator/CartoonNetwork like ''Unnatural History'' and ''Tower Prep'' above, but it's a certainly interesting take on the RogerRabbitEffect with a lot of unique characters and silly plots.

* ''Series/ZekeAndLuther'' and ''Series/KirbyBuckets'': They're hardly the best shows on Disney XD but they're only two single-camera sitcoms on the network. The former was their first ever sitcom, having boy-friendly themes about skateboarding, the title characters interacting with the audience, and a former star from one of Nick's most beloved sitcoms. The latter was their take on ''Series/OutOfJimmysHead'', featuring random cartoon characters who pop up out of nowhere in quick gags and two more ex-Nick stars (from considerably less well-received shows).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/LabRats'' is often dismissed as "just another Disney Channel sitcom", especially since it was on their fringe sister network Disney XD. It tends to get overshadowed by their animated shows like ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' and ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. What makes it stand out is its intriguing concept (three bionic teenagers are raised as normal humans by their stepbrother). The characters are exciting and the stories are funny, but it shines when it gets serious. ''Lab Rats'' is arguably Disney Channel's darkest live-action sitcom, literally exploring the themes of bionic warfare, terrorist threats, and child soldiers. It kicked of a wave of superhero sitcoms on both Disney (''Series/MightyMed'') and Nickelodeon (''Series/HenryDanger'' and ''Series/TheThundermans''), all of which tend to be goofier in nature than ''Lab Rats'', especially the Nick shows. Marvel fans will enjoy something that comes straight out of their playbook, and ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fans will want to look into it as Naruto's English voice actress plays a major character on the show.
* ''Series/{{Crashbox}}'', an HBO edutainment series in where viewers play mini-games in a factory. The games are extremely goofy and random. For example, one game teaches people vocabulary by narrating a day in the life of an unsanitary man, while another involves historical figures visiting a haunted house, and another has a radio host scramble and unscramble words. There's always seven or eight games played per episode, and there are amusing cutaways involving power outages or hi-jinks in a cafeteria.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ShoeboxZoo'': A children's show based on Scottish mythology that ran on BBC for two seasons in the early 2000s. Though it's a kid show the quality of the writing goes far above and beyond what's expected with great character development, complex character relationships, a child protagonist that's actually written like a real child, some genuinely shocking plot twists and a very dark and serious tone while still being perfect appropriate for children. Apparently it once had a reasonably active community that sadly vanished over night. In the present day this wiki is perhaps the only place a future fan might discover the show.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BritainsGotThePopFactor'': A spot-on mercliessly deconstructive parody of TV talent shows. A lot more could be said about this with more outgoing links.

** This season also has arguably the most BadAss Ranger this side of Tommy Oliver himself: Carter Grayson. [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] rightfully gushes over the sheer badassery that Carter demonstrates on more than one occasion.

* ''TransylvaniaTelevision'' needs a lot more attention. It's a great comedy series, it has its hits and misses, but if they expect to make it they need more viewers.

* NBC's ''Series/TheSingOff'' is a fun show about the best a cappella groups in the US gathering to compete. It doesn't really get mentioned a lot in terms of reality shows.
* ''Series/MyOwnWorstEnemy''. A spy series involving split personalities running amok. Cancelled after 9 episodes, probably due to the fact that it was on extremely late.

** To elaborate: the show took a season to start GrowingTheBeard and become what ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' should have been: a rag-tag mix of military members, civilians, and [[spoiler:former terrorists]] stuck on a ship very far away from home, making do with what they have. While the show struggled to find the right balance to its various character and setting conflicts, the story caught up with the stunning visuals around Season 2. Unfortunately, ExecutiveMeddling switched the time slots several times and used the predictable ratings drop to axe the series, killing the entire franchise in the process. The finale left everything on a bittersweet yet hopeful note; if you're a fan of Stargate and the first season is turning you off, ItGetsBetter.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' is a show that seriously needs more love. Its incredible characters, writing and overarching plots are fairly well known in the sci-fi nerd community, but most people these days simply haven't heard of it, even with the rise of science fiction TV. While ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and the ''Franchise/StargateVerse'' are household names, and even ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' gained huge popularity as cult TV, ''Babylon 5'' seems to have been left in the dust. It really needs more exposure, because it's the sort of sci-fi even those who don't like the genre can enjoy - character development and epic stories over [[{{Fanservice}} fanservice]] and explosions. An [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness uncharacteristically bad]] [[ItGetsBetter first season]] doesn't help draw potential converts in much.

* Similarly, ''Series/MercyPoint'' was a hospital show set on a space station. Only lasted [[ShortRunners eight episodes]], but it's eight episodes with complex characters and TheVerse outside being learned of one tantalizing bit at a time. Also, [[HeyItsThatGuy it stars]] [[{{Series/Eureka}} Henry]].
