Why Does Will Arnett Have So Many Failed Comedies?

Over the past 4 years, Will Arnett has starred in 5 series; "Running Wilde", "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret", "Up All Night", "The Millers", and the limited series of "Arrested Development" (after that 10 year break).

And yet, since 2006, he’s received 5 Emmy nominations, once for the third season of "Arrested Development" and the other four as guest actor for "30 Rock". So why is an actor as talented as Will Arnett, not making hit TV series? What is the divide? What isn’t working?
