  • Snip is a 1976 comedy starring David Brenner about a hairdresser living in Cape Cod, Massachusetts who has his ex-wife, daughter and former aunt living with him in his apartment.

It was a take-off of the movie Shampoo and was created by James Komack, the creator of Chico and the Man and Welcome Back Kotter. Pre-broadcast reports about the series noted that it would include an openly gay character as a regular on the show, which was highly controversial at the time. The series was to premiere September 30, 1976 on NBC, but was shelved at the last minute and was never broadcast in the United States. The cancellation was so abrupt, bumpers promoting the show continued to be shown until just a few days prior to the canceled air date. TV Guide listed the show in its "Fall Preview" issue for that year. The show was featured as a full-page Thursday entry, but never made it to the Prime Time network grid. Seven episodes were filmed, but two were never edited. The five which were completed aired only in Australia. Variety later called this "the oddest case of a shelved show" and "one of the most infamous last-minute yanks" and David Brenner has opined that the show was cancelled because the network feared reaction to the gay character.
