3. 'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List' (2005 - 2010)
Concept: Kathy Griffin invites viewers into her life of scrabbling for exposure and berating celebrities.
Bring it back because: Since Griffin is clearly no longer on the D-list (and, to be honest, wasn't on it even when filming began), it's unlikely she'd return to this format, even after her failed talk show on Bravo. Still, Griffin was able to sell the idea with the same cheeky hucksterism that she applied to getting articles in tabloids. With a stable of reluctant assistants, equally D-list friends, a sort-of boyfriend and an interior designer or two, Griffin showed us what it was like to be very successful by most standards and yet nowhere near the top of the ladder by Hollywood's. The snippets from her live performances were just a bonus. Griffin was able to make walking the dog look like a riot, and that just speaks to what a solid comedian she is.
