Chevy Chase, "The Chevy Chase Show"
Aired: Sept. 7 - Oct. 1, 1993
Jul. 16, 2013
One of the most spectacular flameouts in the history of late night television, considering its auspices, Chase's bomb of a show was FOX's second attempt to steal some thunder from NBC's "The Tonight Show" following their failure with Joan Rivers in the late '80s. The show was universally panned, with Chase thoroughly excoriated for being ill at ease and completely out of his depth. The only thing in its favor? It only tortured the public (admittedly a small percentage of the public) for a pitiful five weeks.
