5. 'Ironside' (NBC)
It was worth a try. Well, no, it probably wasn't. The first show axed this season was far from the worst – Blair Underwood's remake of the 1970s cop show (immortalized by the Beasties on Paul's Boutique: "ride around town like Raymond Burr") was probably one of the fall season's less terrible efforts. It just wasn't not-terrible enough. That's how dire things have gotten for network TV. These days, the old joke "They can't cancel everything" is no joke at all.
