4Australia's Naughtiest Home Videos
It's like America's Funniest Home Videos, except not in America, and not funny. Really, we can't imagine any questions you might have that aren't immediately answered in the title.
Why It Was Canceled:
If you honestly can't figure out why this show was canceled, in all likelihood, you are the guy who came up with the idea for this show. If you are that guy, watching the below video should help clarify things.
Hah! From the title, you were probably expecting some unappealing, low-budget, homemade Australian pornography, weren't you? You had no idea that you were about to be tossed knee-deep in animal-humping! Neither did Australia.
This show has gained fame for being canceled before the first episode even ended. The show went to commercial, presumably to give the "People Who Hate Seeing Rabbits Humping Things" a chance to recuperate, and never came back. Instead of treating it's audience to a low-quality video of a jaguar fucking a mailbox, the network ran the message "We apologize for this interruption, unfortunately, a technical problem prevents us from continuing our schedule program at the moment. In the meantime, we bring you a brief, more intelligent program." That "more intelligent program," by the way? Cheers.
That message was cleaned up considerably from Nine Network owner Kerry Packer's original order, "Get that shit off the air!"
3Heil Honey I'm Home!
A British sitcom designed to poke fun at the cheesy, formulaic American sitcoms of the '50s and 60s. Also, it's about Hitler.
Why It Was Canceled:
"The show was centered on fictionalized versions of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun, who lived together in suburban bliss, until the day their lives are turned upside-down by their new neighbors, the Goldensteins, who are Jewish."
Look, we don't think any topic is off limits when it comes to comedy. Everything can be funny; anyone can be laughed at; and it's never too soon. So, we could potentially get behind a show like Heil, despite that you can't overlook that the main character with whom you're supposed to identify is Adolf Fucking Hitler.
That said, this show was stupid. The jokes were stale, the performances were over the top and the theme song wasn't all that catchy. Also, the show is based around the predicament, "What's going to happen now that Adolf has to live next door to Jewish neighbors?" Well, we all know what happened, and it'll make for a terrible season finale.
The creators of this show seemed to operate on the premise of, "We'll make a show that's so intentionally bad, it's hilarious!" Yeah, that actually doesn't work. That's why Snakes on a Plane didn't make money. We'll laugh at the idea of something that intentionally stupid, but we're not going to sit down and actually watch it. We're not that bored.
