One & Out Week: Undeclared

Before he was hailed as a comedic genius, Judd Apatow was churning out criminally under appreciated television shows. And one of the most under appreciated of them was Undeclared.

Premiering on FOX in the tricky climate of Fall 2001, the show featured a cast of lovable freshmen, struggling to make it during their first year of dorm life. Future mega-stars Seth Rogen and Charlie Hunnam would feature in the cast as well as Amy Poehler as a stereotypically lame resident advisor.

The hilarious and sweet show started out strong, but the ratings bizarrely dropped as the season went on. FOX didn't help things by showing episodes out of order and eventually canceled the show.
