    The WB (ended 2006)
    This mystical, high-adventure series with choked full of current comedy references is based on the ancient mythical Xiaolin martial arts inspired by Chinese monks thousands of years ago. Omi, a young, gifted monk-in-training from the Xiaolin Temple, must show his fellow trainees - J-pop hipster girl Kimiko, flashy, street smart Brazilian Raimundo and Texas Kung Fu cowboy Clay - around the world to find and protect sacred ancient artifacts. These sacred objects with supernatural powers called the Shen-Gong-Wu are keys to controlling the powers of good and evil. These can only be captured after an extreme, gravity-defying, martial art-inspired "double dare" showdown occurs. Challenging the trainees is evil boy genius Jack Spicer and his custom-built robot army, along with the ancient witch Wuya - all competing for these objects in extreme Xiaolin Showdowns. It is a tight race - for the one who gathers all of the Shen-Gong-Wu will become an unstoppable force for good ... or evil! Let's go Xiaolin Showdown! Note: A Xiaolin Showdown starts after saying, "Gong Yi Tan Pai," which means "go" in Chinese. Character Guide Omi - An excitable, young monk-in-training who is the leader of the Xiaolin team. Omi is an orphan and has lived at the Xiaolin Temple his whole life. He sets his heart to finding the scattered pieces of the Shen-Gong-Wu, and will have a showdown with any enemy that gets in his way of doing so. Besides teaching his new students about the Shen-Gong-Wu pieces and martial arts, Omi will always learn something from them too. Special Technique: Tornado Strike. Kimiko - She is a rich and sometimes snotty girl. Born and raised in Tokyo, she has a very wealthy background, and sometimes likes to show off her valuables. However, she proves herself worthy when it comes to battle. She tells the others not to pick on Omi, and immediately befriends the young monk, sticking to his side at all times. Kimiko possesses the element of fire. Special Technique: Judallet Flip. Raimundo - He doesn't seem all that nice when we first meet him because he picks on Omi and has a little bit of a bully in him. He is more worried about what his new room looks like than finding the sacred Shen-Gong-Wu objects. However, this Brazilian circus star is helpful in battle as he shows what he can do to kick evil's butt. Raimundo possesses the element of wind. Special Technique: Typhoon Boom. Clay - A cowboy from Texas that knows a thing or two about Kung Fu. He is more loyal to Omi than the rest of the team. He uses his cowboy-like skills to fight in battle and teaches Omi, little by little, how to properly beat the bad guys. He has a steady approach when fighting in battle. Never in a hurry unless he's worried about finding the next Shen-Gong-Wu. Clay possesses the element of earth. Special Technique: Seismic Kick. Master Fung - He is Omi's teacher. He believes Omi will turn out to be a great monk, and, therefore, gave Omi a band of new students to teach and help find the ancient Shen-Gong-Wu objects before evil gets a chance to. He is also a mentor to the students, and often guides them in their travels. When Omi and the others are having trouble in their adventures, Master Fung always provides good lessons to help them in the right direction. Dojo Kanojo Cho - He may look four feet long, but Dojo is really a fourty foot long fire-breathing dragon! He is the Xiaolin Temple guardian and has been guarding the ancient Shen-Gong-Wu scroll for thousands of years. Dojo is also used for transportation to take Omi and his friends to the locations of the Shen-Gong-Wu pieces. He feels like he's been demoted from temple guardian to baby-sitter, though. He is Omi's guardian and is somewhat of a trainer to him during showdowns. He's also the only dragon that can sniff out the Shen-Gong-Wu to their exact location even when they're many miles away. Jack Spicer - The wannabe bad guy that dresses in goth clothing and is bent on world domination. He has a bad attitude, and will always chew out the people who don't agree with what he thinks is best. He stumbles upon the spirit of Wuya, the evil witch, who tells him that he needs to find the missing Shen-Gong-Wu objects before Omi and the rest do. If Jack can't take on Omi by himself, then he relies on his evil Jack-bot minions to help stop them. He is set on finding the missing objects so he can carry out his plans on ruling the world! Wuya - Once an evil witch, but was defeated by Grandmaster Dashi in the very first Xiaolin Showdown. As a result, she was cast into a wooden puzzlebox to be locked away in for 1500 years. Now, she's an evil spirit that can't take physical form and must enlist Jack to help find the missing objects. Wuya tells Jack what to do when he comes face-to-face with Omi and his team, but most of the time Jack just sends the robots to do his dirty work. Wuya needs all the Shen-Gong-Wu objects to return to physical form. Kids' WB Broadcast History November 1, 2003 - Current .... Saturdays, 9:30am Repeats August 16 - August 27, 2004 ....

    Southland

    Southland

    Follow
    NBC (ended 2013)
    Southland has redefined the police drama genre with its raw, authentic look at the lives and work of Los Angeles detectives and beat cops. Shot on location in the streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles, the series captures a realistic, natural environment where similar situations can and often do occur in real life. Created by Ann Biderman, executive producers are John Wells and Christopher Chulack. Southland is produced by John Wells Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

    Southland was a short midseason replacement series used by NBC to plug the hole at Thursday 10:00 pm left by the end of ER. While its viewership never matched ER’s heyday, the numbers were strong enough to give it a nod for a second 13-episode season that was announced by the network on May 1, 2009, three weeks before the end of the first season. Unfortunately, the show’s fortunes changed over the summer. The transition of the Tonight Show to Conan O’Brien’s hands left Jay Leno as a free agent. NBC President and CEO Jeff Zucker, determined not to lose Leno to a competing network, gave Leno a nightly variety show that would air Monday through Friday at 10:00 pm. This displaced a number of heavy-duty dramas like Law & Order: SVU and Southland which would be moved to 9:00 pm slots – before television’s safe harbor. On August 25, 2009, NBC announced they were pushing back the season two premiere from September 25, 2009, to October 23, 2009 (a Friday at 9:00 pm berth). NBC claimed the move was for the good of the show, taking it out of direct competition with the season premieres of Medium – newly moved to Fridays – and Dollhouse. On October 8, 2009, though, NBC cancelled the show. Press reports at the time said the network felt the show was too "dark and gritty." The decision also left the network with six filmed-but-unaired episodes of season two.

    John Wells and WB Television determined not to give up on the show. After NBC reduced its fees for the unaired episodes, they were free to shop it to other networks. TNT was rumored as the interested network by the end of October 2009, and on November 2, 2009, TNT made it official with a press release. It purchased the rights to the six-episode second season and the previously aired first season for a run in early 2010. A decision on a third season funded by TNT would be ratings dependent. TNT ultimately renewed Southland for three more seasons because of a very loyal fan base and critical acclaim. It announced the show's cancellation on May 10, 2013, three weeks after the fifth season finale.

    Seasons one through three of Southland starred Arija Bareikis as Officer Chickie Brown, Michael Cudlitz as Officer John Cooper, Jenny Gago as Det. Josie Ochoa, Shawn Hatosy as Det. Sammy Bryant, Regina King as Det. Lydia Adams, Michael McGrady as Det. Daniel "Sal" Salinger, Ben McKenzie as Officer Ben Sherman, and Tom Everett Scott as Det. Russell Clarke. Season four starred Michael Cudlitz as Officer John Cooper, Shawn Hatosy as Officer Sammy Bryant, Regina King as Det. Lydia Adams, and Ben McKenzie as Officer Ben Sherman, reflecting a reduced budget. In season five, C. Thomas Howell as Officer Billy "Dewey" Dudek was promoted to regular from recurring cast.

    Ever wish you could live your last week all over again? Well, my name's Frank B. Parker, and I do it all the time. I work for a secret government project experimenting in time travel. When things really get screwed up, I'm the guinea pig they send back to take care of it. The catch is, I can only go back 7 days. 7 Days chronicles the adventures of Frank Parker, a "chrononaut" assigned to the U.S. government's "Operation Backstep." The operation revolves around the Sphere, created by Dr.'s Mentnor, Vukavitch, and Ballard from alien technology salvaged from Roswell. The alien power source allows a jump of only seven days, so when a crisis occurs the government assigns NSA agent Frank Parker to jump back in time up to 7 days to prevent it, creating a new timeline where only Frank remembers the old one. Frank is uniquely qualified for the job - he has a high tolerance for pain (required during piloting), a photographic memory, and has had some psychiatric problems that give him a very...flexible mindset when dealing with altered timelines. Assisting him on his missions are project head Bradley Talmadge, head of security Nathan Ramsey, and military advisor and back-up chrononaut Craig Donovan. In the third season Ballard retires and his replacement "Hooter" Owsley takes his place as scientific expert and recurring guest star.moreless

    The WB (ended 2005)
    Jackie Chan is now a cartoon character in his very own television series, battling to obtain the 12 magic talismans, each containing its very own power. He and his Uncle get a visit from Jackie's niece - Jade - and that's when Jackie finds out about Section 13 and the magic talismans which the Dark Hand are trying to retrieve to free the trapped Dragon, Shendu, from his prison of stone, so he will give them the lost treasure of Shen Che Hun. Jackie Chan defeated the Dark Hand almost every time, so Shendu had to use his own allies - The Shadowkhan - to help them destroy Jackie Chan. All the talismans that were found were placed in high security in Section 13. While Jackie continued to obtain each and every talisman, the Dark Hand also tried to figure out where Section 13 was located to steal the talismans and continue searching for the remaining stones. Soon, all of the talismans were collected and Shendu was freed from his stone form. Now, he was able to roam the Earth and destroy all of Asia, but Jackie Chan, with Uncle and Jade, stopped him and Jade destroyed him. In the second season, Shendu's spirit is told by his brothers and sisters that he should've released them when he was in the real world and they put a spell on him to possess a person to get the Pan Ku box and remain in that person's body until all of the 7 demon sorcerers are released (he wants to possess Jackie). If he fails, the torment on Shendu will begin. After taking over Valmont's body mistakenly, he must free the other demons to reign chaos on the planet. He then possessed the Pan Ku Box which can release his fellow demons at different rendezvous points and bring chaos upon the Earth and to destroy Jackie Chan. Jackie continues to search for the Pan Ku box and retrieve it before the Dark Hand actually sends a demon he cannot defeat with Uncle, Jade, and Tohru. After this is over, Jackie goes through many different adventures until towards the end of the season, we are introduced to a Dark Chi Wizard named Daolon Wong. At the end of the season, Daolon Wong takes a interest towards the Talismans, hoping to absorb their powers and make himself invincible. In the third season, just as Jackie is ready to retire from Section 13, Daolon Wong and the Dark Hand break into Section 13, trying to steal the talismans. But Jackie blows up the talismans, and Uncle imprisons Daolon Wong's original Dark Chi Warriors. So they must now save the talisman-powered animals from Daolon Wong and his newly Dark Chi warriorized servants: Finn, Ratso, and Chow with Hak Foo coming later. Even at the time, Daolon Wong resurrected Shendu to get the power of combustion. After Shendu was reverted back to a statue and Daolon Wong (who was stripped from most of his magic) and the enforcers (who have been returned to their true forms) have been arrested, the talismans popped out of Shendu during the defeat. In the fourth season, Jackie must stop Tarakudo the Shadowkhan King and the enforcers from collecting the 9 Omni masks (which used to be his generals) of power that will allow him to control the Shadowkhan. In the fifth season, Jackie must stop Drago from absorbing the chi of his aunts and uncles, the Demon Sorcerers, from the original items that were used by the 8 Immortals to banish them to the Demon Netherworld. Jackie Chan Adventures was nominated for three awards at the Emmy Awards for 2001 and 2002. The series was nominated for the 2001 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing - Special Class, received by Robert Duran (supervising sound editor), and Roshaun Hawley (dialogue editor/adr editor). Nominated for the 2002 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing - Special Class, received by the same crew members as last year, and for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing - Special Class. Fil Brown (re-recording mixer), Dan Cubert (re-recording mixer), Melissa Gentry-Ellis (re-recording mixer) accepted the award while Jackie Chan obtained the 2002 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.moreless
