There have been plenty of terrible sitcom ideas in the history of television, but the short-lived series My Mother The Car, a worst-show-ever candidate, was perhaps the most terrible of all. As the name implies, the show’s main character has a car for a mother, sort of. Actually, he had a mother for a mother, but she's dead, and her soul lives in the vehicle and speaks to her son through the radio's speaker. Totally realistic, right? This questionable premise, you may be surprised to hear, was created by the same group of television masterminds who gave us the biggest hits of the 1960s and 1970s -- proving that even the best creative minds can have a dud of an idea.
