9 Famous TV Flops

The Chevy Chase Show

Chevy Chase, one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, was unable to use his humorous pratfalls to save The Chevy Chase Show, a weeknight talk show that was canceled in 1993 after only five weeks and is often referred to as "The Edsel of Television." Chase later appeared in a commercial for Doritos, in which he made a humorous reference to the show.
