    Lonesome Dove is a western television miniseries based on the novel of the same name by Larry McMurty that originally aired on the CBS network in 1989. The series revolves around two well known former Texas Rangers, Captain Augustus McCrae (Robert Duvall) and Captain Woodrow F. Call (Tommy Lee Jones) running the Hat Creek Cattle Company and Livery Emporium in the town of Lonesome Dove. McCrae is a well known womanizer but has also been in love with Clara (Anjelica Houston) for many years. McCrae has often proposed marriage to Clara, but she always rejects him. Clara is also jealous of the time Call has spent with McCrae. Call, unlike McCrae, is a workaholic who has a son named Newt (Rick Schroder) born from a prostitute named Maggie whom Call loved. Call refuses to accept Newt as his son, but Newt works with Call and McCrae trading horses. Also working with Call and McCrae is a man by the name of Joshua Deets (Danny Glover) who is a former partner of theirs from their Ranger days. One day another former partner named Jake Spoon (Robert Urich) arrives in Lonesome Dove on the run from the law. Spoon speaks of settling in Montana and Call is drawn to it. McCrae is not so sure until the promise of meeting up with Clara once again is presented. Call and McCrae gather a crew of nearly all the men in Lonesome Dove to set off for Montana.moreless

    Emmy Award-winning journalist Joan Lunden hosts Wickedly Perfect, a new reality show that pits 12 people with a creative knack for the finer things in life in a no-holds-barred competition to crown the country's new authority on at-home living. These perfection-obsessed contestants, whose motto is "anything you can do, I can do better," will compete in different areas of beautifying the home and entertaining, including party planning, gardening, cooking, baking, sewing, crafts, floral arranging and decorating. In addition to chronicling the sometimes funny, sometimes factious relationships that develop among the tightly wound, extremely competitive participants, each week a contestant will be eliminated from their luxurious estate located in New England. Renowned chef and restaurateur Bobby Flay (Mesa Grill), Emmy Award-nominated stylist David Evangelista ("The Rosie O'Donnell Show") and best-selling author Candace Bushnell ("Sex and the City" and "Trading Up") will serve as judges. The winner, who will be crowned after 30 days on the Connecticut estate will receive numerous prizes, including six appearances on "The Early Show" on CBS, a development deal for a lifestyle-oriented television show and a publishing deal with Atria Books, a division of premier publisher Simon & Schuster.

    Guns Of Paradise is the sequel series of the 1988-90 television western, Paradise.
    Paradise centered around grizzled gunfighter Ethan Allan Cord, who assumed custody of his late sister's four orphaned children. Ethan's sister, Lucy Cord Carroll, died in St. Louis in the 1890s and her children traveled to the West Coast to live with their uncle in Paradise, California.
    Cord attempted to change his life by becoming a rancher and raising the children in a converted farmhouse he rented from the town banker. The oldest of the children, and only girl, was 13-year-old Claire Carroll, who shared some of Ethan's supervisory duties, especially while he was away. Her brothers were Joseph, 11; Ben, 9; and George, 5.
    Despite attempting to settle down with his new brood, Ethan was often hired on odd jobs which utilized his gunfighting skills. Amelia Lawson, the banker from whom Ethan rented the farmhouse, became his romantic occupation. Ethan's best friend, Native American John Taylor, had a knack for being in the right spot at the right time, usually to help Ethan out of a jam.
    Guns Of Paradise finds Ethan giving up on farming and taking the position of town Marshall, sometimes to the chagrin of the citizens and always a negative to outlaws.moreless

    CBS (ended 2002)
    In this short lived series First Monday hoped to utilize the Supreme Court in the same dramatic manner that West Wing utilized the White House. The CBS series First Monday focused on the nine Justices who laid down the law for the United States. Joe Mantegna headed the cast as Joseph Novelli, the newest member of the nine-person Supreme Court. Entering a political arena that was evenly divided between Conservative and Liberal, the "moderate" Justice Novelli generally acted as the tie-breaker. James Garner co-starred as staunchly conservative Chief Justice Thomas Brankin, who displayed his contempt for contemporary political correctness by puffing away on a cigarette in his "officially" smoke-free private office. Brankin's chief ally was the whimsical, womanizing Justice Henry Hoskins (Charles Durning), while on varying extremes of the political spectrum were Jewish jurist Esther Weisenberg (Camille Saviola) and black Justice Jerome Morris (James McEachin).moreless

    Leg Work was one delightful show that was on CBS back in 1987. Unfortunatly for that tv season it was the first casuality of the year being cancelled after just six airings. LEG WORK had one of the most interesting opening sequences for a television series. All three lead actors in the series were listed in the opening credits as starring. The way that it was done Margaret Colin was the first star of this show as the series revolved around her role of Claire McCarron a hot shot sexy female dectetive. Clare had lots of contacts in the series like her brother Lt. Fred McCarron of the New York Police Department who was played by Patrick James Clark and Clare's best friend was Willie Pipal a chief prosecutor for the New York City Court who was played by Frances McDormand. Francis has went on to bigger and better things since LEG WORK went off the air, she has been twice nominated for an Academy Award and winning one for her role in Fargo in 1997. Margaret has done several films since and a few other television series such as the critically acclaimed Now And Again for CBS. LEG WORK only completed 10 episodes of production. CBS only aired 6 of them however TV Land has over the years aired the remaining unaired episodes a few times.moreless
