37 One-Season Wonders That Didn’t Deserve Their Premature Cancellations
2015 was really a rocky year for TV shows. Backstrom starred Rainn Wilson as an overweight, offensive detective who struggled with his self-destructive qualities. It started off okay, getting eight million viewers for its first episode, but like most shows on this list, the viewership declined with each episode. The show was canceled after one season, which Rainn felt was an injustice. “Backstrom was such a great show. We were on a terrible time slot. Got hammered in the reviews. And people just didn’t give us a chance. Too bad! Oh well,” he told Cinema Blend.
