The A Team

The A Team

A show about a bunch of renegades taking the law into their own hands? Buckets of testosterone and gold chains every single season? Are we talking about The A-Team? You bet your camper vans we are! While the guns and explosions were enough to entertain viewers during its run, behind the scenes things were much more explosive. Given that the entire main cast was made up of macho men with macho ideas, it was hard for them to respect the female cast members. When Marla Heasley joined the show, it was made abundantly clear she wasn't welcome. Apparently, none of the (male) actors wanted her, or any other women, on the lot!

Full House

They always say to never work with animals and children in show business. Why? Probably because it makes everything a million times more complicated. While there are plenty of (working) kids and animals that listen and know how to take cues, that's not always the case. In the early 90s, everyone's favorite house was almost too full for one actor. John Stamos reportedly tried to get the Olsen twins fired from their singular role! Why? They were just too difficult to work with. We get it can be aggravating, but come on! Do you really want to be remembered as the guy who got Mary-Kate and Ashley fired?

Step By Step

Step By Step
Image Search

One step out of line in television and your career is OVER. While pushing buttons and being persistent is one way to advance, sometimes people can be far too aggressive. Any sort of physical altercation, or even evidence of one occurring, is enough to end an actor's career. That's precisely what happened on the family-friendly show Step By Step. Who remembers Cody? He didn't last that long on the show. In fact, his exit was really abrupt! That's probably because the actor, Sasha Mitchell, was charged with domestic abuse while shooting the show! You can't make a family-friendly sitcom when you're charged with that kind of crime.

Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives
Image Search

Inspiration can appear in many forms. Sometimes a person can see a tree and design an entire runway collection around it. A programmer may find a piece of software they like and build an entire network of systems. Even show producers can see something in the news and think that it would make quality television. The origin of Desperate Housewives is similar! When the creator of the show was watching the news one night, they came across a dark and upsetting story. A suburban mom was accused of murdering her five children. That act of desperation sparked something in show creator Marc Cheery. Shortly after that Desperate Housewives was created.

Luck

Luck
Image Search

The wild world of competitive horse racing is really intense. That makes sense with the sport being so fast-paced. When you only have a couple minutes to make or lose millions of dollars you gotta go big or go home. Now take that mentality and keep it in your head. Why? Because acting on that drive is a different matter entirely. Not everyone, or everything, can go as hard (or put up with) such a grueling desire to win. That's kind of what Luck was about. Unfortunately, we'll never fully know where the show was headed due to its own unlucky events. Despite only lasting one season, the show was at the center of a media firestorm after not one, not two, but THREE horses died on the set!

The Deuce

The Deuce

It's important to bring light to someone's negative actions, even after time has passed. Perhaps that's what James Franco was aiming for with The Deuce. Following the adult film industry in the 70s, the show isn't shy about revealing the more sordid details of what went on in those years. Though it seems Franco didn't learn from their mistakes. Unfortunately, life and art became a bit blurred for Franco during the show's run. Accusations arose about his own conduct off-screen. Once it looked like a case of art and life mimicking each other, fans were done with this show. The accusations continued to pile up even after filming wrapped.

Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live

When making live television every week, you have to be prepared for anything. Someone might cancel. An act may screw up so badly that they never return (Ashley Simpson). Or you could have two of your biggest stars EVER get into a fistfight for stupid reasons. Saturday Night Live is a comedic institution and weekly circus that somehow always delivers. Despite stars getting along for the camera, things aren't always friendly behind the scenes. Comedy legends Chevy Chase and Bill Murray apparently got into it one night and started throwing fists! It takes a lot to mess with Bill Murray. We're kind of curious about what was said.

Bob’s Burgers

Bob’s Burgers
Image Search

Before it became one of the best-animated programs to ever premiere on FOX, Bob's Burgers almost didn't make it. While that's the general theme of the show (somehow the restaurant always kind of survives), in reality, it was a lot scarier. A whole bunch of changes had to be made to the original script before any studio would touch the show. The biggest change occurred when the Belchers were changed to a regular burger joint owning family. What were they originally? CANNIBALS. You can still see a bit of the early inspiration in the premiere episode! The family gets their restaurant shut down due to fear of containing human meat. Did it? Guess it's time for a rewatch!

What's one of the most wholesome shows in history doing in an article like this? Nothing truly scary or dark happens on Sesame Street (they have tons of street lights thanks to responsible city planning and infrastructure). Well, not anymore at least.

While on the show, David (played by Northern Calloway) was a cheery fellow who was set to become the next Mr. Hooper! Off the show, Calloway was arrested for breaking and entering someone's home.

Even without watching the show or film, everyone knows that dolphins are incredibly intelligent. These mammals are known to have complex relationships, language, and even engage in underwater hallucinogenic sessions! They're also known to be employed actors. However, their long list of accomplishments doesn't cancel out their darker qualities. While filming Flipper, at least one dolphin was documented as having committed suicide! The conditions for the animals on set were so stressful (and downright wrong) that it was too much for at least one of them to bear. Unfortunately, some animals are still used as props (instead of sentient beings) in the film industry today.

If you live in a luxurious zip code you have to pay luxurious prices. Nobody learned that lesson as hard as Will Smith during his years as a royal in Bel-Air. Due to his success in the music business, and his newfound success in acting, young Smith had a lot of extra cash. However, he wasn't always the most responsible spender. Smith claims to have easily spent around $6 MILLION during his early seasons on the show. Unfortunately, while many knew of his spending, the IRS wasn't one of those in the know.

A Different World

It's hard to talk about A Different World without mentioning that it was a spin-off of the wildly popular Cosby Show. While some characters made a reappearance in the spin-off series, the show didn't last past six seasons. Though that's not bad for a spin-off. Some of the more well-known characters didn't fare as well as the show did. Denise Huxtable, played by Lisa Bonet, was actually in a season of the show! While reprising her Huxtable name she became pregnant (offset). During a meeting one day she was let go by none other than Bill Cosby! Why was she fired? “Lisa Bonet is pregnant, but Denise Huxtable is not.” Rude.

We're back at Central Perk to talk about a member of the Friends group. Our attention is on Chandler this time. Everyone's favorite funny guy/transponder wasn't always cracking jokes. Sometimes his own mental well-being was cracking. Was it the pressure of his newfound success and television show? Nope. It was due to the nearly crippling Vicodin and alcohol addiction he developed. Everyone in the group apparently had their own issues, but Perry's were some of the most visible. After getting clean in the early 00s, Matthew Perry says he doesn't even remember shooting a few of the seasons of the series.

Sometimes great shows seem to vanish for no reason whatsoever. One day we're laughing up a storm and the next we're hearing that there's a mysterious hiatus (and then a cancellation not too soon after that). One of these great sitcoms that followed a similar path is Martin. This hilarious show had everything going for it. The characters were great, the styles on-point, and the punchlines were always hitting. What could possibly have ended its rise to superstardom? The show's creator. Tisha Campbell, who played Gina, filed multiple sexual harassment and abuse reports against Lawrence. Things reached a head when she agreed to film her final scenes during the last season, but only if Lawrence was nowhere near the set!

Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana

Living a double life is tough work. Living a triple-life seems near-impossible. While Hannah Montana explored what it's like for a superstar to try and have a “normal” life, her life behind the scenes was just as crazy. Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment were only playing nice for the cameras. When the lights weren't on they were constantly going after each other! Cyrus' parents (as well as Osment's) eventually had to get involved to stop the two from fighting so much. In her book, Cyrus admitted that it was hard for her to separate the television friendship and the (lack of a) real-world friendship she had with Osment. The stress of making television is bad enough, but throw in puberty and a fake reality from Hollywood and you've got a recipe for disaster.

Often overlooked, Frasier was one of the smartest sitcoms ever to air on TV! The beloved series was a stuffy yet endearingly funny spin-off of Cheers. Dr. Frasier Crane was a blowhard who needed to learn to relax (as did his brother). Their dad was a breath of fresh air and a constant thorn in their sides. Plus, Eddie the dog was the true star. With a show this fantastic, it's hard to imagine tragedy striking. Then 9/11 happened and everyone's world turned upside-down.

What rolls downstairs, alone or in pairs, and over your neighbor's dog? What's great for a snack and fits on your back? It's LOG, LOG, LOG! Ren & Stimpy is one of the most ridiculous and poignant animated shows to come out of the 90s. While it was CLEARLY not aimed at kids, that didn't stop them from watching it. It was a weirdly dark yet funny show that made everyone slightly uncomfortable. Maybe it had to do with the fact the creator was a total creep. John Kricfalusi (an ADULT) reportedly had a 16-year-old girlfriend! He also abused several other women (children at the time) who eventually came forward in 2018.

Roseanne was one of those shows that struck a bunch of chords with audiences. Many weren't thrilled with how crass and honest the show was, others thought it accurately depicted life in America for many families. Either way, it was a smash-hit. Millions tuned in weekly to see what adventure Roseanne would have with the gang. While each story was well-crafted, it seems that not even the writers were huge fans of their work. That's probably because they were terrified of their boss (and the show's titular character). Roseanne's legendary temper and overall attitude weren't secrets to the cast and crew. She was apparently horribly scary and rude to work with!

Every day is a Happy Day when you're on the set of Happy Days. This wholesome show set in the 50s was actually shot in the 70s! Not only did it give Henry Winkler and and Ron Howard a massive career boost, but it also saved Howard's life. Right before Happy Days was scheduled to shoot the pilot, Howard received a notice that he would be drafted into the Vietnam War. Since that didn't sound like fun, Howard had to find a way to get an exception from being sent overseas. Given that he was in an art school, he couldn't use his studies as an excuse. Thankfully, at the eleventh hour, he got selected to shoot the pilot for Happy Days! That was enough work to keep him out of the draft (and probably alive).

It's also one of those phenomenons that's so multi-layered that it works on every level. Even hospital staff can appreciate some of the finer behind-the-scenes details going on. How so? Well, some lucky medics have intimate knowledge about how unsafe it was to film certain episodes. In fact, Raymond Cruz and Aaron Paul have intimate and firsthand knowledge of where the medics on set were. That's because Cruz accidentally gave Paul a concussion while filming!

When making a show with sensitive topics, you have to be aware of how all members of the crew are acting and interacting with each other. One Tree Hill, a must-watch for many, likes to tackle these issues without shying away from tropes that made it so addicting to watch. Unfortunately, despite being well-received by viewers, things on set weren't always going smoothly. The writer's room was allegedly run like a frat house! Things were super misogynistic. It didn't end there though. The CREATOR of the show was said to be extremely manipulative and verbally abusive with his stars. He even spread rumors and harassed people while on set.

Power, fame, and even success can corrupt people and change them in weird ways. The X-Files was a culture-defining show and a good example of the fame phenomenon. Despite millions of people falling in love with Agents Scully and Mulder, the stars of the hit show were anything but friendly partners in real life. On-set, these two delivered some knockout performances. Once the cameras stopped rolling they made sure to try and stay as far away from each other as physically possible. Both stars admitted that as the show got more popular, they both became much more difficult and almost irrational to work with! Thankfully, none of that spilled over into their scenes.

Making “must-see” TV is a pretty stressful job. Not only do you have to keep viewers on their toes, but you also have to make sure everyone on set is as devoted to the project as you are. That can turn even the most routine productions into a nightmare to work on. Despite Stranger Things' MASSIVE success, not everyone was thrilled to be connected to the show. As things began to pick up, and the creators realized they had a hit on their hands, tensions would occasionally start to rise when filming. Multiple sources on the set have come forward and said that the creators (the Duffers) would get verbally abusive with female crew members.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show was one of the most popular talk shows of its kind. The comedian turned actor turned talk show host had a wild ride leading up to her eventually getting her own show. While the topics and stunts were generally well-received (aside from the random scares), in the later seasons mumblings about a toxic environment started to come to light. It didn't take long before the mumbling turned to shouting. After some investigation, it turned out that a lot of upsetting things were happening behind the scenes. In response, Ellen vowed to do better. Then the show was canceled for “other” reasons. Though the writing was written pretty clearly on the wall.

They just don't make wholesome comedies like they used to. While newer sitcoms have their appeal, the classics are just too heartwarming to ever let go. The Andy Griffith Show is one of those series that will forever live in our hearts. The relationship between Griffith, his son, and Aunt Bee was idealized by every family. As loving and close as they appeared on TV, it was all just an act. Francis Bavier, Aunt Bee, was not very happy with her character. Even though it was steady (and nationally beloved) work, she just couldn't get along with her co-star, Griffth. Her resentment got so bad that she severed all contact once the show wrapped. Later in life, she sent him an apology on her death bed before she passed and wished things had been different.

The characters on That '70s Show were out-there. Some of them were just plain far out. Do you see where we're going with this? Awesome, so we can drop the cliches and corny jokes. Some of the more interesting people on the block didn't make it until the end. Midge, Donna's mom, was one of our favorites. She was spacey but still caring. We couldn't get enough of her! Unfortunately, she seemed to get phased out at the show's peak. It wasn't due to her popularity or anything. Unfortunately, the actor playing Midge had her own family issues going on behind the scenes. She eventually left the show altogether to take care of her sick husband.

Typically game shows are filled with light-hearted fun and thrilling feats. We're on the edge of our seats watching a contestant complete an obstacle course, or we're laughing when they stumble and splash into the water. Sure we'd probably never compete in one of these shows ourselves, but they can't be dangerous, right? Unfortunately, one contestant wasn't so lucky when failing the course. Makes you wonder what kind of vetting process is involved for a show like this. Wipeout originally aired in 2008 and was brought back in 2020.

Being a child star isn't easy. While the fame fortune seems appealing, growing up in front of an audience can be stressful and awkward for a teen. Jaleel White, the talent behind Urkel, had this issue while performing on Family Matters. But rather than age up the character, production opted to hide White's growth. They even went so far as to discourage him from working out! They hid his natural muscle growth with baggy clothing, and the actor was required to shave every day. You can imagine the kind of toll that takes on someone going into adulthood. Later the actor would confess that the role made him feel like he was slowing his own growth.

This Lifetime series follows the progress and careers of child dancers as they're being mentored by choreographer Abby Lee Miller. One of the most entertaining aspects of this show is watching the drama that ensues between Miller and the moms, but people still watch to see contestants flourish in their craft. Chloe Lukasiak, a contemporary ballet dancer, dropped off the show early on, and she had a pretty good reason. Apparently, she refused to sign a pretty shockingly restrictive contract, resulting in her removal from the series. The contract stated she couldn't gain or lose 5-10 pounds or change her hair. To top it all off, the show wanted to take 10% of the money she made!

Everyone who ever starred in The Golden Girls is a superstar. Each of the girls went on to have amazing careers (and had them before the show). For instance, Bea Arthur was no stranger to TV by the time she moved in with Blanche, Dorothy, and Rose. Before all that she was Maude. A dry-witted, sarcastically funny, go-getter. She was a mold-breaker. She was Maude. The show was so well-received that it swept multiple Emmys across multiple seasons. That all came to a screeching halt when Bill Macy (Walter) took to the Emmy stage one night, things went from funny to foul real quickly. He dropped his pants in front of EVERYONE.

This show was absolutely Earth-shattering when it came out. We don't think it'd be a stretch to say that Lost was a defining moment in television history, running for over 100 episodes and receiving countless awards and nominations. People simply HAD to tune in every week to find out what would happen to the cast of castaways. You'd think the person who greenlit the show would be praised for his decision, right? Lloyd Braun was the ABC chairman who gave Lost the go-ahead to shoot their $12 million pilot episode. As a reward for this decision, he was forced out of his position.

Community

Community

Hollywood has a handful of actors who are known to be somewhat difficult to work with. They might be talented and attract audiences, but behind the scenes, they're extremely messy. This was definitely the case when it came to Chevy Chase and the sitcom Community. Behind the cult following and Emmy nominations, there was trouble brewing. Chase was known for severely putting heads with show creator Dan Harmon, to the point where he would refuse to film certain scenes. He was also known for making racist jokes during scenes featuring Donald Glover, and once used a racial slur in front of him and his other Black co-star Yvette Nicole Brown. While he apologized for that incident, it left a bad taste in audiences' mouths.

It abruptly stopped after his eight-year run on the show ended in an injury. During a parody of the Golden Girls in 2001, he injured his neck and left the show later due to the event.

It's important to remember that characters and actors are separate beings. Sure, an actor brings their persona to life on the screen. However, they also have their own stuff going on off-screen. Robin's on-screen life is already fraught with drama. Behind the camera, Colbie Smulders was dealing with her own peaks and valleys. She was, and still is, a warrior. Despite the diagnosis, Smulders acted throughout the entire season. Not only did she not let on to what was happening, but she also seemed to separate the two events. One was being a star and the other was fighting for her health. Taking time off is completely understandable. Instead of that, she pressed on as best that Robin Sparkles could!
