Moving Jay Leno to primetime is TV’s biggest mistake according to Entertainment Weekly, but it isn’t the only one. EW has listed 49 others and I agree with the ones that Dalton Ross told CBS’s Early Show about. I know I gave up watching Felicity when Keri Russell cut off her hair and I wasn’t the only one. I am still pissed that Fox cancelled Family Guy even though they brought it back. Shelly Long and David Caruso were idiots to leave their hits shows for failed movie careers. Event though I had high hopes for Caveman, it was possibly one of the worst shows ever made.
Although I can’t find the full list, five huge TV errors that are not included in that segment are The Sopranos finale, the Seinfeld final episode, The CW not renewing Everwood, CBS cancelling Moonlight and Fox’s reality show Who’s Your Daddy?. What other blunders do you think TV executives have made in the past?
