    CBS (ended 1990)
    Welcome to the Island Son guide at TV.com. Returning to weekly series television for the first time since Dr. Kildare in the 1960s, Richard Chamberlain was again cast as a dedicated physician. Dr. Daniel Kulani had had a successful career as an internist on the mainland but decided to return home and take a staff position at the Kamehameha Medical Center in Honolulu. It was here that he could be close to the family that had adopted him as a child and work with needy native Hawaiians. Working with Daniel at the medical center were the chief surgeon, Kenji Fushida, two talented young residents, Metzger and McGrath, and the cost-conscious chief of staff, Margaret Judd. Although the series centered around activities at the hospital, the divorced Dr. Kulani did spend time with his adoptive parents, Tutu and Nana; his stepbrother James; and his own son, 18-year-old Sam, who was unsure about whether he wanted to be in college or out on his own. In the spring of 1990, Daniel fell in love with high school drama teacher Nina Delaney, a divorcee with a 13-year-old daughter, but Island Son was cancelled before the course of their relationship was determined.moreless

    CBS (ended 1973)
    Archie's Funhouse was a Saturday morning cartoon show that aired on CBS from 1970 to 1971 and from 1972 to 1973. The show was the sequel to the previous season's one-hour Archie Saturday morning series "The Archie Comedy Hour" (which was one of the biggest hits for the 1969-1970 Saturday morning season). "Archie's Funhouse", of course, featured Archie and his pals (Jughead, Reggie, Veronica, Betty, Hot Dog and others) as on-stage hosts of skits, jokes, and music. The program also had live-action kids as the audience for the show, responding to the antics of the Archie gang. Actually, the concept from the show came from 2 segments that were first shown on the previous season's "The Archie Comedy Hour". They were the "Funhouse" and "Side Show" segments. On "Archie's Funhouse", these segments featured puns, jokes, and skits. For these segments, Filmation Studios hired writers from the hit NBC primetime show "Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In" (the show that inspired these segments) to write for these segments. In addition, the show also featured "The Giant Jukebox", playing hit songs from The Archies. There were 3 song segments per show with on-stage performances by The Archies. Hit songs included "Sunshine", "Love Vibrations", and "Comes The Sun". "Archie's Funhouse" started off as a one-hour show on Saturday mornings from 1970 to 1971, then it was trimmed to a half-hour shown on Sunday mornings from 1972 to 1973.moreless

    The Elvira Show was a hilarious situation comedy based on the still popular character of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Unfortunately CBS found the comedy and innuendo too 'racy' for television and cancelled their order for a full season of The Elvira Show. Elvira and her Aunt Minerva (Katherine Helmond of "Soap" and "Who's The Boss" fame) have settled into small town Manhattan Kansas. Minerva spends her days channel surfing while Elvira makes a living as a palm reader. Life for the two 'closeted' witches with their talking cat Renfield is about to change as long lost niece of Elvira "Paige" (Phoebe Augustine of the band 'Cling') shows up on their doorstep. It jus so happens that Paige is Elvira's Niece, daughter of her late brother Elvin. Having lived in a Catholic boarding school on a remote island off the coast of main (with a bunch of nuns) Paige is a stark contrast to her aunts. Meanwhile the simple life of palm reading and channel surfing is about to go haywire as Elvira is charged with poisoning an innocent woman with a love spell concoction. A hunky stud police officer is sent in undercover to nail Elvira (pun intended). With a hilarious climactic end Elvira is saved in the nick of time by her niece who also turns out to be a witch. Unfortunately CBS burned this show at the stake before it could even cast it's spell over America. While shows like Roseanne were laden with even more suggestive comedy and innuendo CBS put The Elvira Show in it’s sights and canned the show. Not more than a few years later ABC came out with a very popular show using the same chemistry as The Elvira Show. “Sabrina The Teenaged Witch,” featured two witchly aunts and their up and coming teenage niece. They even had a talking cat!moreless

    Anatole

    Anatole

    CBS (ended 2000)
    Based on the Caldecott Award-winning book series by Eve Titus, Anatole tells the tale of a dignified mouse, Anatole. A loving husband and father to six charming children from outside of Paris, Anatole acts as an ambassador between the mouse world and the human world. From his adventures on the streets of Paris, Anatole provides an understanding of the value of diversity in a multi-cultural society. Venture out and take an exciting trip with Anatole. CHARACTERS Anatole - Every night when most everyone in France is fast asleep, a small figure in a jaunty beret and smart blue smock kisses his wife goodbye and bicycles into Paris. His name is Anatole, and he works at the world famous Duval Cheese Factory as a cheese tester. But Anatole is not just any tester – he is unique. He is acknowledged as the very best tester in the country and his opinion is valued above all others, and yet no one has seen his face, for he prefers to work alone at night, his only companion being the lovely smelling Duval cheeses…and M'Sieu Duval's not so lovely cat, Charlemagne. Anatole is the most magnificent mouse in all of France – a brave, resourceful, hard-working mouse of action. A mouse for whom a problem is not an obstacle, but an opportunity to find a solution. M'Sieu Duval - Anatole's human counterpart is his boss, M'Sieu Duval. Duval is an elegantly chic man, pompous an a bit of a snob and yet smart enough to realize that he owes his current success to the mysterious Anatole. Ever since Anatole became chief cheese tester, Duval Cheese have become the toast of France. He is perpetually curious about Anatole's identity, but does not violate his desire for privacy. "A genius must be allowed his eccentricities" he tells everyone. Paul and Paulette - As the oldest siblings, Paul automatically takes charge whenever the siblings are assembled. And why not? He's a natural leader and leaders like to lead. Paul thinks he knows what's best for everyone and imposes his opinion on others. At time he is overbearing, bossy and stubborn like his dad, yet he is also mature enough to know when to pull back. Paul is often challenged by Paulette. Of the two, Paulette is more sensible and willing to reason with recalcitrant siblings than Paul. Paulette will find a compromise, or a way to present a plan that makes it acceptable to the others. Claude and Claudette - These are the artists of the family, though Claude is more verbal and Claudette more visual. It didn't take them long to observe that the older twins get more privileges and the younger ones get more attention. Both feel that as the middle children in the family ladder, they're getting the short end of the stick. This belief has made them very close and they work in tandem jockeying for position to make themselves visible. Georges and Georgettes - All five years olds are loose cannons, but Georges is more so because of his athleticism. This is a physical, rough housing, tumbling, sprinting little boy. Things break in his wake. Georgettes is always off somewhere she's not supposed to be. Something catches her eye and she's gone. Naturally this is worrisome to parents and siblings alike. She is venturesome, outgoing and always eager to experience anything new. Gaston - Gaston is Anatole's best friend and sidekick. Where Anatole is a mouse of action, Gaston is a mouse of ideas. All his thinking, however, is a defense mechanism to cover his basic nature – he is a worrier and generally a lazy mouse. This combination make him much less of a go getter than his friend. His is a timid pragmatist, content to observe rather than participate, and to run for it and save his own hide rather than put his bottom on the line and attempt to save another person. Charlemagne the Cat - Watch out for this one. Charlemagne is Madam Duval's most beloved possession. This mean-spirited animal has very few redeeming qualities. He toys with his prey, and delights in their pleas for mercy. This is one kitty who pumps iron just to stay in shape to be a better mouse trap. He is vain, proud of his shiny black coat and his lean mean body, and hunting mice is his life. Pierre the Pigeon: Pierre is a pigeon with a fear of flying. When Anatole needs to get somewhere fast, he hops on Pierre's back and off they go. Well perhaps not right away. Anatole first has to plead, cajole, convince and persuade Pierre to take flight. Pierre doesn't know why he has this terrible phobia – perhaps some deep trauma from his youth. Only Pierre's affection and respect for Anatole enables him to fly. Francois de Pamplemousse - Anatole's nemesis is the richest mouse in town, Francois de Pamplemousse, a misguided creature who is philosophically opposed to everything that Anatole stands for. He doesn't like humans. He uses his influence to make life uncomfortable for Anatole. He considers himself to be an aristocrat, claiming that hamster blood runs in his veins.moreless

The building's earnest young handyman, who lives in the basement, loves the shy heiress who lives in the penthouse. Separating this couple, more than just 20 stories of plush co-ops, is a slew of oddball relatives and millions of dollars in social prestige." "Eamon Roach (Van Holt) is the building's cellar-dwelling superintendent, who rooms with his dad, Finn (Murray), the doorman. Allison Conklin (Brewster), his heartthrob, is a kindergarten teacher who resides high above with her father, the belligerent billionaire Nicholas Conklin (Stiers), and her champagne-swilling mom, Effie (Kurtz). Allison's hilarious family includes her empty-headed sister, Puff (Greer), and her sarcastic younger brother, Nicky (Livingston)." (CBS press release) This low-key spin on Upstairs, Downstairs managed to make the air, despite CBS CEO Les Moonves' intense dislike for the pilot, but he went out of his way to make sure no one saw it. Promotion was minimal (and bad), lead-in was inappropriate, time slot was ill-conceived, and premiere was two weeks into the season. As such, it aired three times before it was put on "hiatus" and strung along for months in limbo. Both the network and the studio were insistent on shooting all 13 episodes, so for that, we have a nice, short miniseries. Watch the pilot first, "Howard's End" last, and the other episodes in between in production order, and see one couple's relationship come full circle. "Hip, hip, love, love Hooray for love Who was ever too blase for love Make this a night for love If we have to fight, let's fight for love Some sigh and cry for love Ah, but in New York, they die for love Some say we pay for love But today hooray for love" Theme song (episodes 2-13) "Hooray for Love" written by Harold Arlen (music) and Leo Robin (lyrics) performed by Bobby Short Love & Money is produced by Staley/Long Productions, in association with CBS Productions / Paramount Network Television Broadcast History ----------------- Oct 1999, Fri 8:30-9:00 Jul 2000, Tue 8:30-9:00 First telecast: October 8, 1999 Last telecast: July 18, 2000 Show type: Multi-Camera Sitcom Number of episodes: 13 Media: 35mm filmmoreless

When he was approached by the people who owned the American rights to Fawlty Towers, he called us, and asked if we'd like to stomp all over sacred ground. We jumped at the chance, and have been stomping ever since. After many creative meetings with John Larroquette, (how close should we stay to the original... how can we really translate the British humor/should we?... how do we really Americanize it?....etc.) We wrote the pilot. Our initial instinct was to stay very close to Fawlty, to prove a: we weren't afraid of it, and b: we could do it. Having a: proven we could do it, we were b:, afraid to keep doing it.

Upon returning from a six-week promotional tour she discovers her husband of 11 years, Joey (Christopher McDonald), in bed with another woman. Added to her problems at home, Susan shares her office with Jack Harold (Treat Williams), a womanizing, never-married divorce lawyer who is constantly trying to steal her clients and convince them that divorce is the way to go. Good Advice suffered problems from the beginning. Its launch was delayed from September 1992 to April 1993, first because Shelley Long was in poor health and then because the show's concept was changed. After just a handful of episodes it came off air to be altered again and relaunched in September 1993, but Long's health difficulties meant that it did not return for a full year, until May 1994. It then staggered through to August, with CBS giving it a new day and time slot, before it was canceled.moreless
