  • show Description
  • When their dad took a job in Japan, teenage livewire Holly Tyler (Amanda Bynes) and her straight-laced (twentysomething-year-old) sister, Valerie (Jennie Garth), move in together in New York City . Just when Val thought she had the perfect existence - a promising career in public relations, her own Upper West Side apartment (now Loft), and plenty of eligible men to date - everything in her neatly regimented life started to unravel the minute Holly stumbled through the door. Their new life together will take a lot of getting used to, but Val and Holly's relationship is stronger than ever. In early 2006, when The WB and UPN decided to combine to form a new network known as The CW, the number of WB and UPN shows being ported over to The CW were cut back in order to make room for new programming. This show was one of the many WB shows that suffered as a result of the networks joining, and was canceled in early 2006, and the series finale aired in March, leaving the final season at only 18 episodes. The WB's Broadcast History: September 2002-May 2003 Friday at 8:00pm June 2003-September 2003 Friday at 8:30pm September 2003-December 2003 Thursday at 9:00pm December 2003-May 2004 Fridays at 8:30pm June 2004-March 2006 Fridays at 8:00pm (Simulcast in HDTV starting with episode 23) Theme Song: Lillix's re-recording of The Romantics "What I Like About You" is used in season 1. It has been remixed in Season 2, 3 and 4. The original version (used in season 1) can be found on their album "Falling Uphill".moreless
