Though there have been some good spin-offs but later on those. On this list, we’re going to talk about the 10 Worst TV Spin-offs Ever of some of the most famous shows.
Worst TV Spinoffs Ever
Friends is one of the best sitcoms ever but Joey was just a plain disaster. Joey didn’t even felt like a spin-off, it was more like a new show. It was about Joey going to Hollywood to pursue his dream of being an actor. The show aired in 2004 and was cancelled in 2006.

A spin-off from the television series, Baywatch, Baywatch Nights was about Mitch Buchannon who was lifeguard by day and private detective by night.

9. That 80’s Show:
That 70’s Show was one of the best sitcoms of its time but the spinoff That 80’s Show was just a dull show with no charm at all. The show mostly focuses on struggling musician Corey Howard, punk-rocker June Tuesday and Corey’s father, R.T. and their mentality. Changing the location and the decade just didn’t work for this show.
10. Snooki & Jwoww:
Wasn’t Jersey Shore enough, well the producers, of course, didn’t agree and lunched this bizarre show called Snooki & Jwoww. And this show even after being bashed by critics, ran for four long seasons. It’s like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and all their spinoff shows.
