From Hot To Not: 5 Recent Shows That Flopped Big Time

It happens every year. You find a brand new show to fall in love with only to watch it get canceled. This is a constant in the entertainment industry. Many highly-anticipated shows got pulled off the air due to poor ratings. During the past few years, these shows managed to get the boot.

Powerless

While most DC shows thrive on The CW, NBC got their hands dirty with Powerless. The show followed the everyday lives of people working in Charm City. While it didn’t have major DC characters, it did feature Bruce Wayne’s cousin Van and superhero Crimson Fox, as well as fan favorite actress Vanessa Hudgens. Because of its almost non-existent connection to the DC Universe, people stopped watching it. After the ninth episode aired, NBC pulled the final three episodes from its 2017 schedule.

Minority Report

2015’s Minority Report came to Fox as a sequel to the popular 2002 sci-fi film. From the start, the ratings were not what the network expected. Many critics were upset that it wasn’t as exciting as the Tom Cruise movie. In response, Fox cut the show’s original 13 episodes to 10 and canceled the show.

The Get Down

Netflix dropped $120 million for the production of The Get Down. That’s around an astonishing $11 million an episode. The show gained praise for its acting but saw some criticism for the overall plot. The Get Down became the first Netflix series to be canceled after the first season.

Marvel’s Inhumans

Marvel’s Inhumans was slated to become a big screen juggernaut for Marvel Studios. Due to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. officially introducing Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they moved it to the small screen. When the trailer was released at San Diego Comic Con 2017, it gained a lukewarm reaction. The show debuted on ABC to poor reviews and low ratings. Six months after the show ended, ABC officially announced it wasn’t coming back for 2018.

The Briefcase

In 2015, The Briefcase brought some major cash to families, but with a price. The reality show followed families and their decision to either use or donate the cash. The series was criticized for exploiting poor families in the country. The Briefcase was canceled by CBS after six episodes. Australia decided to run their own version of the show in 2016, but that also didn’t work out.
