9 Famous TV Flops

Cop Rock

Cop Rock might have done better if it was called "Rock Around the Cop," but the combination musical/police drama went down the donut hole in 1990 after only 11 episodes. Even with a theme song by Randy Newman and scripts written by Steven Bochco (creator of Hill Street Blues), Cop Rock still bombed due to scenes such as a jury singing a gospel song "He's Guilty." Bochco later redeemed himself with NYPD Blue.
