(Newser) – PopCrunch rounds up 16 of the worst TV spinoffs of all time: Here's a sampling:

  • Joanie Loves Chachi: "A mewling stillborn abomination that starred two people who obviously hated each other." Happy Days deserved better.
  • Galactica 1980: Bad acting and a lame plot doomed this spinoff of the original Battlestar Galatica.

  • Joey: Without his ensemble of Friends, Matt LeBlanc couldn't pull it off. Not even close.
  • Enos: "You know what I wish Dukes of Hazzard had less of? Thrilling car chases, and scantily clad young ladies. Oh, and maybe more of that bumbling deputy, Enos." Oddly, it flopped.
