19. NBC cancels 'Baywatch' (1990) and 'JAG' (1996)



What were they thinking?
Ratings for David Hasselhoff's lifeguard drama and David James Elliott's military courtroom series weren't strong enough to persuade NBC to pick up the shows for a second season.


What happened
"Baywatch" producers acquired new funding and sold the show into first-run syndication, where it ran for 10 more seasons, grossed hundreds of millions of dollars, and -- according to Guinness World Records -- became the most popular show in the world. As for "JAG," CBS scooped it up; it went on to run for nine more seasons and spawned the hit spin-off "NCIS," which recently spawned "NCIS: Los Angeles."


Lesson learned
An itchy trigger finger can lead to an abundance of financial regret.


That is so right-on! I bet NBC is STILL kicking themselves for letting JAG slip away from them! Oh, well, stinks for them, that's what they get!

Oh, the TVGuide Channel is doing a segment on top TV bombs and blunders, I doubt that they will bring this up, but I'll DVR it just in case.
