Everyone has to start somewhere in show business. And when everyone's starting from Square One, you can never really predict how people's careers are going to turn out. Especially if the show is forgettable at best or Barney at worst, you know? Imagine going to a middle school band concert, listen to a bunch of kids play, like, John Philip Sousa out of tune, and then realize 30 years later that Miles Davis was on trumpet and John Coltrane was on sax. Or imagine Jimi Hendrix's 8th grade talent show. Or imagine us making a post-1970s reference. Mind-blowing, right?

Anyway, being a Hollywood actor is difficult. Even if you somehow managed to land a lead on a TV series, the show could still be a miserable flop. If any of these following 16 shows are an indicator, you can have the "it" factor and still not become a star from an unremarkable show.
