Worst TV Spinoffs

Thanks to Todd’s comment for the obvious followup to my 20 worst movie sequels. So with no particular number in mind and in no order of horribleness (is that even a word?), I present my list of the worst TV spinoffs:

The Ropers (1979-1980) – Three’s company spinoff without Jack and the girls.
Golden Palace (1992-1993) – Golden Girls minus Bea Arthur
Joni Loves Chachi (1982-1983) – Happy Days minus the “Happy”
Joey (2004) – Friends without any friends.
Booker (1989-1990) – Can a horrible show i.e. 21 Jumpstreet have a spinoff? Apparently so.
Baywatch Nights (1995-1996) – As if Baywatch during the day wasn’t bad enough
The Lone Gunman (2001) – Could have been as good as the X-Files except for that whole airplane crashing into the WTC plot in the series premiere that came to life a few months later.
A Different World (1987-1993) – Lisa Bonet couldn’t cut it here either.
Archie Bunker’s Place (1979-1983) – Archie minus Edith
Flo (1980-1981) – Alice’s waitress sidekick Flo “Kissing some grits” on her own.
Enos (1980-1981) – Enos from the Dukes of Hazzard minus Daisy.
The Tortelli’s (1987) – Cheer’s spinoff minus all the characters except for Eddie
AfterMASH (1983-1984) – A decade of Klinger proved to be plenty.

As always feel free to add your own.
