'My So-Called Life'

Aired on: ABC, 1994-95 Had "MSCL" been developed a year or so later, it perhaps could have landed on a fledgling network like The WB, which was actively targeting teenage viewers. And perhaps it could have enjoyed a longer run than the often brilliant one season it did have. The show aired opposite NBC's "Must-See TV" comedies on Thursday nights -- and led into "Matlock," of all things -- and star Claire Danes has said that the punishing schedule of an hour-long drama was more than she could handle at 15. Her reluctance to do a second season may have given ABC some cover in canceling the show (which had marginal ratings, at best). But we'll always have those 19 great episodes.
