13. The Magic Hour

Date: 6/8-9/4/1998

The Magic Hour was Magic Johnson's contritely named, short-lived (eight weeks to be exact) late night talk show. The much-ballyhooed series was met with horrible reviews and laughable ratings. The Lakers legend appeared nervous on television and seemed a lot more comfortable reading zone defenses than teleprompters. The Magic Hour joined Vibe and The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show as dumb concepts that tried to fill Arsenio Hall's shoes, but never should have been created. Johnson's show is now talked about in jest and watched ironically.
