Which Great TV Show Had The Worst First Season?

Some things really do get better with time. Especially TV shows. Sometimes a show stumbles out of the gate so badly, you can't believe it'll ever become watchable. And then you check back a year or two later and boom — it's become the best show ever. Which show had the worst first season, before achieiving greatness?

Please include a picture or clip for your chosen TV show. And please mention the name, and why the first season was so much worse than the rest. Thanks!
