Over the years, Comedy Central has grown from a gimmicky cable channel to a legitimate television giant. There were some missteps along the way, but there were also a lot of great Comedy Central shows you forgot about, ones that didn't last nearly as long as they should have. Some of the best canceled Comedy Central shows actually only lasted a single season, even one starring an all-time top 100 comedian.
Shows of all varieties fell victim to the dreaded season one cancelation, including one of the best animated shows in Comedy Central's archives, but most were live-action, either sketch shows or mockumentaries, or some combination of the two. In many cases, these shows felt like they could have found a really solid groove had they been given a second chance, but the higher ups were just too quick with the guillotine.
These are the best Comedy Central shows that only lasted one season, but the good news is that some of them, made in this precious digital age, are still available to stream. Others, though, are lost to the ages. Prepare to shed some tears and grab a drink to pour some out for each of these lost gems.
