TV shows that were canceled before they aired a single episode
To get a TV series onto the air, from idea to finished product, requires a lot of work and a lot of time.

But at least those kinds of shows got the chance to be judged in the court of public opinion—and in the ratings—before their ultimate demise. The following shows are ones that were approved and ordered by TV networks, produced, promoted, and scheduled … and then yanked off the air before they were even broadcast.
