TV Shows We May Never See Again

by cleon1224 | created - 05 Jan 2015 | updated - 1 month ago | Public

Television programs that are considered rare or somewhat classic, but will probably never get to be viewed again. Not as reruns on TV, let alone released on DVD/Blu-ray or made available on iTunes (some of these shows were on iTunes before, but ended up being removed). Sure some of them were short-lived with just a handful of episodes, others lasted for one full season or more. They may have had the lowest ratings, were badly criticized or even had moderate success. Licensing and/or royalties may be another issue. But these are the TV shows we tend to think about and wonder that it would be nice if we could just see them again somehow.
