    Burke's Law

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1965)
    Burke's Law was an Aaron Spelling-produced detective series that starred Gene Barry as Amos Burke, Los Angeles' millionaire chief of detectives. The jet-setting, swinging Burke was chauffeured to crime scenes in his Rolls-Royce and had a penchant for dropping professorial axioms ("Never ask a question unless you already know the answer. Burke's law!") Gary Conway and Regis Toomey played Burke's supporting detectives, and Leon Lontoc played Henry, Burke's chauffeur. This tongue-in-cheek mystery aired from 1963 to 1965 on ABC. For the 1965-1966 season, the show was retooled as Amos Burke, Secret Agent and changed to a spy show. The new Burke lasted only 17 episodes. In 1994, Barry returned as Burke in a brief revival of the show that aired on CBS along with Diagnosis Murder. The new series kept much of the style of the original (elaborate crimes and big-name guest stars) but lasted only 13 episodes.moreless

    Kolchak: The Night Stalker

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1975)
    Kolchak was originally two made-for-TV movies that aired in the early 70s, and featured the adventures of Carl Kolchak, a down-on-the heels reporter who ran afoul of a vampire in Las Vegas and an alchemist in Seattle. These movies proved popular enough that they were spun off into a series, which placed Kolchak in Chicago with the Independent News Service. Each week for 20 weeks he investigated various supernatural and supranatural creatures, ranging from aliens to vampires to Aztec sacrificial cults. Although it only lasted one season on ABC, Kolchak has remained a cult favorite and been kept alive through the efforts of creator Jeffrey Grant Rice, Mark Dawidziak, and the folks at Moonstone Comics, who produced two Kolchak comic books and a series of novels and anthologies. The show also spawned a brief and very loose remake in 2005, Night Stalker.moreless

    Welcome to the Where The Action Is guide at tv.com.
    In 1963, AMERICAN BANDSTAND left the weekday shift for Saturday afternoons. Two years later (1965), Dick Clark created a new spin-off for ABC called Where The Action Is, a half-hour rock 'n' roll show featuring the hits of the day.
    Where The Action Is took viewers to various locations across the US. In addition to Stateside locations, segments were also taped in Canada, Britain and Japan. One frequent location was Malibu Beach in Malibu, CA, where many of the summer shows were shot. Bear Mountain Ski Resort in Bear Mountain, CA was the frequent site for the the winter and holiday shows.
    Steve Alaimo and Linda Scott were the original hosts. By 1966, Paul Revere and the Raiders, the house band, took over the hosting duties. Other series regulars included Keith Allison, Tina Mason and Jimmy Hubbard. The Action Kids was the series' dance troupe.
    Where The Action Is was in black and white during its original ABC run. It was followed by two short-lived remakes (in 1973 and 1985). In 1987, CBS-TV aired "Keep on Cruisin'," another series following in the footsteps of "Action".

    ABC (ended 1959)
    "Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me?" Next to Howdy Doody (which it helped unseat), The Mickey Mouse Club was the defining children's television program of the 1950's. The show, which aired daily, featured a true variety of entertainment: singing, dancing, guest stars, classic Disney cartoons, serials, and a group of talented kids who became overnight sensations—the Mouseketeers. Led by adult leader Jimmy Dodd, and flanked by hefty Disney animator Roy Williams, the Mouseketeers sang and danced their way into the hearts of the first TV generation.

    The standout of the group was Annette Funicello. Young America watched as the lovely and talented teenaged beauty developed before their very eyes. Annette soon starred in her own serial on the show, and went on to a successful career in film and music.

    Another popular element of the show was the serialized adventures of The Hardy Boys and Spin and Marty. Veteran Disney child actor Tim Considine starred in both, making him what many refer to as the "Honorary Mouseketeer." Other serial performers included Tommy Kirk, David Stollery, and Roy Barcroft.

    Set in Oakland, California, this is a show about Mark Cooper, a former NBA basketball player who moved back to his hometown to become a coach at his old high school, Oakbridge High School. In the first season, he shared his house (and the rent) with his old friend Robin Dumars, a music teacher, and the sexy Vanessa Russell. Their relationship was strictly platonic, which meant that the stories mainly revolved around their dating misadventures as well as Mark starting his new career as a teacher. At the start of the second season, Robin had moved out of the house and Mark's cousin, Geneva Lee, and her daughter, Nicole, moved in. Also, P.J. Moore, the formidable principal, was added to the cast while the neighborhood kid, Tyler, frequently seen in the first season, now became more prominent as Nicole's best friend. Hangin' with Mr. Cooper began its run on Tuesday nights airing directly in between Full House and Roseanne. Starting with the second season, the show was moved to Fridays nights joining the infamous TGIF lineup. Hangin' with Mr. Cooper ran for five seasons on ABC.

    ABC (ended 1988)
    San Francisco's St. Gregory was an elegant hostelry indeed. It's marble columns rose up over a cavermous lobby and elegant restaurants above lay plush suites serviced by an attentive staff. This was the setting for romance, drama, and occasional comedy in the weekly series titled "Hotel." Produced by the same people responsible for "Love Boat," Hotel bore a certain resemblance to that seagoing series. There were different guests each week, usually in gentle stories of the heart, almost all with happy endings. Sometimes the drama was a little heavier as when a prostitive was brought into the hotel and then gang-raped by some students or lighter, as when the kindly old gentlemen died in the dinning room but was left popped up until after lunch so as not to distrub the other patrons. The staff included Victoria Cabot, a wealthy aristocrat who over saw the operation on behalf of her sister-in-law, Laura Trent; Peter McDermott, the suave, bearded General Manager; Christine his beautiful assistant and later lover; Mark, the handsome and likable public-relations director; and Billy Griffin, a black ex-con who had gone straight and now served as the hotel's security director. Julie was in charge of the information center, while cheerful newlyweds Dave and Megan were a bellhop and desk clerk, respectively, who left the series when, after a long struggle, he graduated law school. Among the familiar faces appearing as guests were Morgan Fairchild, Shirley Jones, Pernell Roberts, Arte Johnson, Liberace, Donald O'Connor, McLean Stevenson, Stewart Granger, Connie Stevens, Peter Marshall and Lynn Redgrave. Prior to the series' debut there was much publicity about the signing of Bette Davis for the recurring role of Laura Trent; however, due to illness she was seen only on the premiere and then departed on an "extended trip," leaving Victoria in charge. When grande dame Victoria died in the middle of the 1985-1986 season it was revealed she had left her half interest in the St. Gregory to her loyal assistant Peter. He promptly made his loyal assistant -and growing love interest- Christine the new General Manager, while eager Megan became the new assistant manager. All of this happiness was temporarily interrupted by a battle for control of the hotel waged by members of the Cabot family who owned the other half - Charles (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.), Jessica (Dina Merrill), and Jake (Ralph Bellamy)- but in the end Peter managed to buy them out. The series was based, more or less, on Arthur Haley's best selling novel of sex and scandal, and was also known as Arthur Haley's Hotel The real hotel that served as it's model was the regal Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill in San Francisco, whose imposing facade was seen in exterior shots and whose giant lobby was re-created on a Hollywood sound stage.moreless

    The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries is the sixth of many short-lived and lesser-known Scooby-Doo shows. But this show is basically the same as Scooby And Scrappy, except that there is a new beginning song and before that Scrappy talks about what the episode is about. In this spinoff series, Daphne assumes Fred's position as leader (Fred and Velma only appear in a few episodes in this series), a tremendous departure from the days of "Dangerprone Daphne". Shaggy, Scooby, Scrappy, and Daphne solve mysteries under the pretense of being reporters for a teen magazine. The theme song is also new, sung in the same style as Michael Jackson's hit Thriller with a row of monsters doing the "Thriller" dance in the opening sequence.

The series lasted five years and was even canceled in 1987 only to be renewed by ABC.
