Crime, crap, and Drew Barrymore.

3. GLITTER: In 1984, ABC television executives thought that Spelling's success with the oil-centric clan on Dynasty could be replicated in a primetime sudster about the titular magazine. They were wrong.

4. LIFE WITH LUCY: Spelling once tried to create a similar show with another famous face, 1981's Aloha Paradise, starring Debbie Reynolds, but clearly he didn't learn his lesson: This 1986 ABC sitcom starring comedic icon Lucille Ball as a grandmother raising her family and working in a hardware store landed in the trash heap after only 13 episodes.
