    Dead Last. Came out during the summer of 2001 on the WB network. It's about a female lead singer for a band that sees and helps ghosts. **** didn't last long :csad:

    Brimstone :cmad:
    Daybreak. Only 3 episodes made it on TV. :csad:
    The Black Donnellys :cmad:
    The Dresden Files:csad:

    So many more that I've forgotten. :csad:

    Halfway Home

    Young Hercules (had they only used the young Hercules they used from the main series and the Young Hercules moive this would have been a hit.)

    Biggest one for me is Keen Eddie.

    Apatow ultimately found justice with his features though.

    It's so hard to remember and I haven't seen most of those listed, but I do vaguely remember Life as we Know it. (There were a couple of really hot guys in it.) :) It should have been given more of a chance.

    I'll agree, Arrested Development got a raw deal in the end, but I'd say the show caught on to extent. Three seasons, and a handful of Emmys, I think that qualifies as "catching on".

    I forgot about Tru Calling. I did like that. Too bad it only had one season.

    The second was only six episodes, five of which actually aired.

    Yeah, the sixth episode was pre-empted by a repeat of the Simple Life, 'cause it was around the time Paris and Nicole stopped being friends. :cmad:
