One of Fox's new comedies this year is Dads, which was created by Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane and his Ted co-writers. It stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as two best friends and business partners whose dads move in with them. Ha? Even though the series won't premiere until Sept. 17, it's already received awful reviews, which point out issues with racism and sexism.

But that doesn't mean it will fail. After all, MacFarlane has a pretty huge fanbase, so plenty of people will give the show a chance, and many may like it. It wouldn't be the first time a show that was hated by critics went on to be a hit. Here are some other TV shows that critics thought wouldn't make it past the pilot that went on to become successes.
