CoachLooks like nostalgia just isn't enough.

NBC has canceled their planned "Coach" reboot, despite an initial 13-episode order. The new show would've brought back original series creator Barry Kemp, as well as stars Craig T. Nelson and Bill Fagerbakke. There have been rumors that production was not going well due to creative issues.

The new "Coach" would've been a sequel to the original, which aired from 1989 to 1997. Nelson's character, Hayden Fox, is retired, but called back as an assistant coach to his son.

From the beginning, the revival seemed like a bad idea. At TCA a few weeks ago, one reporter asked NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt if it was a practical joke. "One man's practical joke is another man's hit show," he said. "It's a way to do another variation on a family show with, I think, a truly talented star and a great showrunner and a presold title. And if that works, then 'Elf' the series is next."

Well, thank goodness it didn't work then.
