    The George Wendt Show. George Wendt is very funny and a very good actor but from what I remember of the show the comedy was very slap stick while Mr. Wendt does better with more dry humor. If they had reworked it I think it could have done well.

    Either one of Norm MacDonald's short-lived sitcoms, Norm or Stan Hooper could have lasted a bit longer had they been done properly. By that, i mean not regurgitating common sitcom stereotypes (gay friend, ex-girlfriend, polar opposite at work, etc.) & not put them in situations that are warmed-over ideas inspired by I Love Lucy or Seinfeld. Taking the originality route by avoiding The Office wouldn't hurt, either.
