7 Worst TV Spinoffs of All Time ...


Just like there are lists of the best and worst shows, there can be lists of the best and worst TV spinoffs.

There are some shows I didn’t know were spinoffs and there are some spinoffs I’ve never even heard of.

With all of the TV that I watch, it is hard to believe that there are shows I didn’t know existed.

Let’s take a look at seven of the absolute worst TV spinoffs.

1. Three’s a Crowd

“Three’s a Crowd” was a spinoff of “Three’s Company.” While its successor was really successful, the spinoff didn’t have the same luck.

This show was only on for one season and it’s not hard to see why.

The best part of “Three’s Company” was how hilarious it was.

“Three’s a Crowd” had too much of a mushy side to it to be able to have the same success as its predecessor.

I love “Three’s Company” so I’m a little bummed that the spinoff wasn’t as good, but where’s the fun in watching Jack Tripper be mushy in a relationship?!

2. That '80s Show

I still watch repeats of “That '70s Show” and I was kind of excited to see how they would portray the '80s.

Sadly, I had a feeling the show wouldn’t do too well because even towards the end of the original series it wasn’t as good as when it started.

There were a lot of people left disappointed with “That '80s Show” and I don’t blame them.

The characters weren’t as great and when it comes down to it, the show just wasn’t as funny.

They could have kept going and made a show about the '90s if only this one had succeeded, but sadly it didn’t.2

Maybe they shouldn’t have tried to keep it going.

3. Saved by the Bell: the College Years

Why did they make this?

I mean I get what they were trying to do, but sometimes people just have to learn when enough is enough!

Maybe if the original cast had been in the show it would have had a better chance, but sadly Lisa and Jessie weren’t around for this spinoff.

The original was cheesy of course, but it was so lovable that it could be ignored.

Unfortunately, the spinoff didn’t have the same lovable feel to it.2
