The infamous Superman: The Musical. Based on a failed 1960s Broadway musical, the 1975 TV special was part of ABC’s attempt at broadcasting “edgy” entertainment in order to compete with NBC’s Saturday Night Live. The plot of the musical is of course moronic: an egotistical reporter for the Daily Planet, Max Mencken, is jealous of all the attention Superman gets in the press and from his adoring public. He hatches a plot to bring Superman down not by using any kind of super-weapon, but by turning the public against him, thus giving Superman a negative self-image.
