    ABC (ended 1990)
    Mr. Belvedere began in March of 1985 and aired on ABC. It was a spring replacement series and yet another family sitcoms from the 80's joining the ranks of The Cosby Show, Family Ties and Who's the Boss?. Mr. Belvedere centered around the Owens family who lived in suburban Pittsburgh. George Owens was a sports writer and his wife, Marsha was a homemaker/law-student. They had three children, 16 year old Kevin, 14 year old Heather and 8 year old Wesley. The series began when it got to the point where Marsha couldn't handle the household anymore with her studying so she placed an ad for a housekeeper. This is where Mr. Lynn Belvedere steps in. Mr. Belvedere was an English housekeeper whose previous employers include Winston Churchill. Although hesitant, George and Marsha hired him and he instantly becomes one of the family, even giving the kids advice on how to solve their problems when they need it. At the end of each episode, Belvedere would write an entry in his journal concerning the situations that occurred in each episode. The series lasted five years and was even canceled in 1987 only to be renewed by ABC. The series followed Marsha through law school and into her first job as a lawyer, Kevin through high-school and into college and Heather and Wesley through puberty. In 1990, the series was canceled and in the finale, Mr. Belvedere leaves the Owens household after getting married. The series was based on the novel Belvedere written by Gwen Davenport which was later turned into three movies of the late 40's and early 50's, in which Clifton Webb portrayed Mr. Belvedere.

    Milton the Monster

    Milton the Monster

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1966)
    In the fall of 1964, primetime television was invaded by two clans of monsters who were definitely more funny than scary, The Munsters and The Addams Family. Ever quick to capitalize on the hot trend, Hal Seeger Productions sold The Milton The Monster Show to ABC for the 1965-1966 season. It would be Seeger's only network television series. Milton and his friends definitely fell into the more funny than scary category, thanks to some clever scripts by the team of Jack Mercer and Kin Platt, as well as Woody Kling. Milton himself was a giant Frankenstein-type, but since too much tenderness was added to the recipe by Milton's creators, Professor Weirdo and Count Kook, it resulted in Milton being a good-hearted monster. The late Bob McFadden did the voice for Milton as a good ol' Southern boy, not unlike Gomer Pyle. Milton's other friends included Heebie and Jeebie, as well as Abercrombie The Zombie. When Hiram The Fly puts on a pair of super glasses, he becomes the assertive superhero Fearless Fly in the most prolific supporting series from this show. Usually he hangs around the Sugar Bowl with his fly friends Flory and Horsey. Fearless adversaries include Dr. Goo Fee and (crossing over from his Milton role) Professor Weirdo. In the other supporting series, Stuffy Durma is a hobo who inherits ten million dollars, hires an advisor named Bradley Brinkley to handle his affairs, and opens his mansion to hobo friends like Ashcan Annie and Stu Mulligan. Most of the cartoons in this subseries were animated by New York cartooning legend Jim Tyer. Among the less-prevalent supporting series are Penny Penguin, Muggy-Doo, and Flukey Luke. The Milton The Monster Show aired on ABC from 1965 to 1968 and in syndication afterwards. It is still offered for syndication by Worldvision Enterprises.moreless

    ABC (ended 2006)
    Sons & Daughters is an ABC sitcom that stars Fred Goss ("Significant Others") in this unique hybrid comedy series that offers a mix of improvisational and scripted humor in an unadulterated look at marriage, raising children and living in close proximity to an extended family. Series creators Goss and Nick Holly borrow from their own middle-American, middle-class upbringings to deliver a very real and relatable modern-day family comedy. At the center of the family dynamic is Cameron (Goss), happily married to his second wife, Liz (Gillian Vigman, "Mad TV"), and the father of three children with her. One of the speed bumps on their road to domestic bliss comes from Cameron's resentful teenaged son from his first marriage who recently moved in and is not adjusting well to life with his father and new step-family. Cameron's life is further complicated by his sister, Sharon (Alison Quinn), and her husband, Don (Jerry Lambert), seemingly happily married with two teenaged children -- yet both in deep denial on several issues, including a current years-long sex drought. Cameron and Sharon's very pretty younger stepsister, Jenna (Amanda Walsh) -- the "it girl" when she was in high school -- had her career plans derailed by becoming a single mom. She continues to be attracted to "bad" boys like Tommy White, AKA Whitey (Greg Pitts), and not to the nice guys -- like Wylie (Desmond Harrington) -- who are attracted to her. The three siblings' parents, Colleen (Dee Wallace) and Wendal (Max Gail), are extremely devoted to their adult children and their grandchildren but, not surprisingly, have some issues of their own. Colleen, a little uptight and impulsively judgmental, both likes and dislikes the safe and comfortable environment that husband Wendal has provided for 25 years. A good guy, Wendal juggles and struggles with the varied relationships he has with his extended family members.moreless

    AKA: Michael Jacobs' Untitled Pilot (USA) (working title) AKA: My Second Chance (USA) (working title) From Michael Jacobs comes a new family comedy Lost at Home. Michael Davis thinks he has it all - he's an ad agency superstar with a fancy title and ambition to spare. He's a great provider, and is proud of the restored farmhouse where his stay-at-home wife, Rachel and their three kids live in a beautiful country setting. But somewhere on the road to fame and fortune, and the endless workdays it took to get him there, Michael lost touch with his family. He gets a wake-up call when Rachel announces that he's allowed to love his work, just not more than his family. She's seen a lawyer - and unless he reconnects with his family, she's going to leave. Bright and beautiful, Rachel has tried her best to raise their kids virtually on her own. She tells Michael that he remembers the kids for who they used to be, not who they are now. He's in for a shock. The oldest, Will, is a popular high school football player whose morals are ruled by his hormones. Thirteen-year-old Sara doesn't fit in at school and has turned to an unlikely place for friendship - a huge older classman football player, Tucker, who gives her the sage attention and advice she misses from her dad. Seven-year-old Joshua is a little too perfect, trying too hard to be a wonderful student and obedient son. It's something Michael tries to take smug credit for, until Rachel tells him that the school counselor thinks Joshua's behavior is an attempt to win his absent father's attention. Michael wants to earn back the love of his wife and the trust of his kids, but he's a fish out of water in his own house. He's been away so long he doesn't even know how the kitchen appliances work. The winning strategies that have made him a success at work are surprisingly useless at home. But he's determined to try and win back his place in the family. His boss and best friend, charismatic ad agency owner Jordan King, reluctantly agrees to give him less work. Michael begins a heartfelt journey to be defined by his success as a family man, and not just a businessman. ---------------------- Company credits: Production Companies * Michael Jacobs Productions * NBC Studios * Touchstone Television Distributors * American Broadcasting Company (ABC) * Buena Vista International (2003-) (worldwide) (TV) Other Companies * Matchframe Video post-production facilities --------------------------- Release dates USA 9 April 2003 -------------------------- Directors: Andy Cadiff Mark Cendrowski Ken Whittingham Brian K.

    McHale's Navy

    McHale's Navy

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1966)
    A Lively, Light-Hearted Romp Through The Pacific Theater Of Operations –

    An experienced South Pacific sea dog, by the name of Quinton McHale, was commissioned as a Lieutenant Commander into the U.S. Navy Reserve, at the start of World War II, and made the Skipper of the Torpedo Patrol (PT) Boat #73, stationed at the U.S. Naval Installation on the island of Taratupa, in the Southwest Pacific. Assigned to his command were 6 free-spirited, good-hearted Swabbies who loved to have fun, but who – Though they usually ignored Navy regulations – Did their jobs, and did them well, when duty called. The 73 'Family' included, among others, a con man and amateur Magician, a womanizing hunk, a dedicated Family man, a guitar-picking, moonshine-making Tennessee good ol' boy, and even a deserter from the Japanese Navy, who was an excellent cook. Second in command, was Ensign Charles Parker, a young spit-and-polish, by-the-book Officer from Chagrin Falls Ohio, who was somewhat of a klutz, but who always managed to come out on top of a situation, usually with the help of McHale and The Crew.

    McHale and his men were under the command of Base Commander Captain Wallace B. Binghamton (Known as 'Old Leadbottom' to McHale and his men), in whose side, McHale and his Crew were a constant thorn. Most episodes centered around Binghamton's trying to find way to get rid of McHale and his rule-bending 'Pirates' (One would be hard-pressed to see an episode of this series without the military term 'Court Martial' being mentioned, at least once), with McHale and his fun-loving 'Eightballs' scheming to keep Binghamton from doing so, their exemplary performance in battle, more times than not, getting them out troublesome situations.

    McHale's Navy was first presented a straight action drama, on ABC's Alcoa Premiere anthology series, in April of 1962. The pilot episode – Entitled Seven Against The Sea – Found enough of an audience that it was converted to a comedy series, which premiered on the ABC Television Network on the evening of Thursday, October 11th 1962, at 9:30 p.m. EST. It got off to somewhat of a slow start, opposite NBC's popular Hazel, but held it's own, and gained a small following. It cracked the top 25 in it's 2nd season ('63/'64), on Tuesday nights, in the 8:30 time-slot, with a strong lead-in from ABC's Combat, landing at #23, with a Nielsen rating of 22.8. But, from that point on, it was all uphill for McHale. In it's 3rd ('64/'65) & 4th ('65/'66) seasons, in a losing battle with CBS's powerhouse Red Skelton Hour, it was soon on it's way out. An attempt to boost it's sagging ratings, by moving McHale, his Crew, and Captain Binghamton to a base in Italy, in it's 4th and final season, proved to do more harm than good, and resulted in the cancellation of the series, in 1966.

    The series was popular enough with the public to prompt the production of two full-length theatrical-release motion pictures, during it's run. McHale's Navy, released by Universal Pictures in June of 1964, featured all the regular cast members from the series, and McHale's Navy Joins The Air Force, in July of '65, this one sans Borgnine. Both were 90-minute extended episodes of the series, and mildly popular, at best. A 1997 big-budget movie, based on the series, and with Tom Arnold as McHale, was a total flop. All three are available on VHS or DVD.

    Lately, it's been tough to catch McHale's Navy on TV. Programming Managers don't seem to realize just how many loyal fans the show still has, and just how many new fans the show would doubtless make, were more people allowed to experience it. However – McHale fans, rejoice! – Shout! Factory came to the rescue, and began releasing McHale's Navy, on DVD, in boxed sets, beginning on March 20th, 2007, with Season 1. Season 2 was released on September 11th, 2007, Season 3, on March 18th, 2008, and Season 4, on November 18th, '08.

    With a highly talented cast including Academy Award® winner Ernest Borgnine, comic genius Tim Conway, the one-of-a-kind comic talent of Joe Flynn, and a solid supporting cast, McHale's Navy was – And is – TV comedy at it's very finest.moreless
