8. The Paul Reiser Show (NBC, 2011)
Starred: Paul Reiser, Ben Shenkman, Omid Djalili, Duane Martin, Andrew Daly, Amy Landecker
It was inevitable that someone would try the winning Curb Your Enthusiasm model on a broadcast network, a feat that would always be doomed to fail. But even a Larry David cameo couldn't help The Paul Reiser Show transcend the soulless awfulness of its execution. It only took two weeks of stone-faced viewers for NBC to pull the plug. Leave the semi-autobiographical aimless wandering to the king on HBO.
