10 Hollywood Actors Who Have Bricked On TV

Dennis Quaid

Fail(s): Vegas (CBS, 2012-2013)

Quaid's star wasn't at its peak when he signed on to lead Vegas, but his move to TV retained the air of a power move, rather than one of desperation. He was signing with the biggest broadcast network out, as the true blue hero of a crime drama that also boasted Michael Chiklis.

But such is the double-edged sword of CBS. If you're not doing NCIS numbers then you're no good to them, especially with bills like Quaid's $150,00 per episode fee. (He was one of the highest paid drama actors on-air during the 2012-2013 season.) And suddenly one of the season's surest bets fell to Fridays and the writing was on the wall.
