Which TV Show Had Incredible Marketing But Turned Out To Be A Waste Of Time To Actually Watch?

Recently, I rounded up some overhyped movies that viewers felt ended up being disappointments to watch. That got me thinking, what about TV shows?

For example, I was really excited for the Saved by the Bell reboot, but, for me, it failed to capture the magic of the original series.

Or, to go back a little further, as a kid, I was obsessed with Camp Rock. I was so excited for Demi Lovato to finally get their own show, but Sonny with a Chance just couldn't hold a candle to the other Disney Channel series of the time.

Or, more recently, Marvel promoted the heck out of Secret Invasion. I was so hyped to see some of the OG characters like Fury and Hill get their time to shine...only for the plotline to be so convoluted that I couldn't keep up, yet so boring that I didn't care to. I could only get through one episode.
