By  | 


Everyone has their favorite TV show, whether it's a sci-fi series or a comedy about cops. But what if your favorite show was completely different? For some shows, the original pilots had so many elements that either weren't included in the official pilot or were just plain scrapped. Maybe they were good to start with, but just needed a little tweaking. Some premises were even so bad to start with that writers were asked to change everything about the show.

But regardless of how they started, the following 16 shows eventually became ones we know and love… they just happen to be completely different from the original concept.
