10 Fall Sitcoms That Didn’t Get the Green Light — The Funnies
The reruns are over, and it’s time for a new season of television entertainment. While the likes of Matthew Perry, Dennis Quaid and Sophia Bush will dot the small screen in new programs, there are some shows that, sadly, didn’t get past the pilot stage.
