37 One-Season Wonders That Didn’t Deserve Their Premature Cancellations
Now better known as a Fenty Beauty highlighter shade, Trophy Wife was once associated with Malin Akerman’s short-lived sitcom about a young party girl who marries a middle-aged lawyer and is thrown into a world of parenthood, ex-wives, and complicated generation gaps. Like most ABC comedies, Trophy Wife suffered from a poor title choice (it worked better for the highlighter) that distracted from its nuanced humor and strong performances by its leading cast. Imagine how long it could have ran if it was just called Modern Family instead. One of the best shows of 2013, Trophy Wife’s poor ratings weren’t a fault of the show, but of the same network that butchered the roll-out of Don’t Trust The B- in Apartment 23 and Selfie.
