Television / Most bizarre TV flops in history / Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)

We'd be remiss in not including the best-worst TV flop of all time: the Star Wars Holiday Special. Aired in the time between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, the 98-minute variety show mostly focuses on Chewbacca's non-verbal family grunting at one another in celebration of Life Day, a non-denominational sci-fi surrogate for actual December holidays. Grandpa Itchy gets all excited watching softcore porn, Mark Hamill has barely recovered from his car accident, and it's a miracle that the Star Wars franchise survived the debacle. It only aired once, and Lucasfilm has subsequently declined to acknowledge that it ever happened.
