Forbes.com has put together a list of TV’s Biggest Turkeys of 2010, which is just a timely way of saying the biggest busts among new shows on the major networks.
The list includes shows that have already been axed like Fox’s “Lone Star” and ABC’s “My Generation” . . . plus the ones on the fence, like NBC’s “The Event”.

“Lone Star”, Fox . . . canceled.

“My Generation”, ABC . . . canceled.

“Outlaw”, NBC . . . canceled.

“The Whole Truth”, ABC . . . canceled.

“Undercovers”, NBC . . . canceled.

“Medium “, CBS . . . canceled.  (–I think we all know that “Medium” isn’t a “new” show.  But it was new to CBS, because they picked it up during the off-season, after NBC canceled it last year.)

“Running Wilde”, Fox . . . “over,” which means:  “all-but-officially-canceled.”

“Life Unexpected”, the CW . . . “over,” which means:  “all-but-officially-canceled.”

“Parenthood”, NBC . . . “limping along.”

“Chase”, NBC . . . “limping along,” it’s only averaging 5 million viewers.

“The Apprentice”, NBC . . . “limping along.”   This non-celebrity season is averaging around 4 million viewers, but a new “Celebrity Apprentice” is on tap for this spring.

“The Event”, NBC . . . “shedding viewers.”  It’s gone from over 11 million viewers, to less than 6 million viewers.

Was any of these shows your favorite?
