One I saw that surprised me was the original Gidget with Sally Field. Eek
I read through the list. I loved "The Time Tunnel" - I was about 12 at the time. I didn't remember that it only lasted one season.

I watched "New Amsterdam" and liked it at the time.

some of the shows on that list were more than one season,,

Going back quite a ways, but "T.H.E. Cat" was a very interesting series with Robert Loggia in the 1960's.

I'm racking my brain and can't recall the name of the series. One season only. Guy and gal investigators with a very nerdy computer geek that hung out in their office. I want to say it ran on FX, AMC, or USA but not sure.... I did post about it here on Sigforum but search doesn't go back that far sadly.

ADDENDUM: Well I'm nothing if not persistent. Kept trying different online searches and finally found it. Ran 10 episodes on TNT in 2013: King & Maxwell. Based on David Baldacci novels.

Agree with many already cited especially Firefly. Then there's Extinct that ran only 10 episodes in 2017 on BYUtv and the earlier Fairly Legal with Sarah Shai on USA 2011-12.

I am surprised "Seal Team" outlasted "The Brave." Neither is great but the latter was certainly more interesting than the former in my opinion.

I think having David Boreanaz gave ST the advantage, whereas The Brave had better action, better stories and better acting but no real star power to carry it.
