    CBS (ended 1996)
    What are friendship, love and especially dating like in the Nineties for the twenties set? That's what this new big-city comedy from CBS looks and laughs at. At 28, Annie O'Donnell, (Nancy McKeon) an upwardly mobile placement coordinator at a New York City personnel agency, has spent most of her dating life kissing many frogs in her search for a prince. Her best friend and next-door neighbor, Didi,(Mariska Hargitay) frequently offers advice, solicited or not, on everything from the outgoing message on her answering machine to how far Annie should go on a first date. Roger Carrlucci,(Louis Mandylor) Annie's endearing socially unpolished co-worker, is also in search of the perfect mate, although most of his "cool" dates can be found dancing topless in a cocktail bar or riding New York's mass transit system. Elliot Tanny,(Kevin Crowley) another agency co-worker and friend, is happily married and so has trouble keeping up with the list of do's and don'ts for dating in this decade. Together, the young foursome braves the ups and downs of love and romance, offering one another advice, but mostly adding support and humor to what seems to be an endless string of dating dilemmas. Nancy McKeon also starred in the LIFETIME series "The Division"moreless

John finds refuge in Europe, and sets out to find the man who framed him, so that he can return home. The only two people who believe his story is a US Consulate worker, Charles Cabot (Christian Burgess), and a city cop, Danny Montreau (Patrick Floershim), who John helps solve local crimes throughout the series.

    CBS (ended 1998)
    "Gregory Hines, star of stage, screen, and television, makes his television series debut as Ben Stevenson, a widower who has been mother, father, and confidant to his 12-year-old son, Matty since his wife's death a year-and-a-half ago. Now, even Ben has to admit that it's time to resume a social life. As he eases back into dating, he finds he has as much to relearn about women as Matty is learning for the first time. Contributing plenty of advice are Ben's brother, Carl, and his dad, James, as well as his publishing house co-worker Alex, Alex's ex-wife, Nicole, and their assistant, Angela. This process proves even more awkward than necessary, since the modest Ben, with his offbeat wit, has no idea how attractive he is to women. For Ben and Matty, who have never had trouble talking openly about anything, now even the simplest conversation has become complicated - especially when the topic is the women in their lives." (CBS press release) In 1997, CBS entertainment president Les Moonves sized up that ABC's commitment to TGIF was waning, and, because his own network was dead on Friday, decided to pick up the slack. He started by swooping in and snatching Family Matters from them by offering its production company, Warner Bros., a higher license fee than ABC was willing to pay. Then he picked up Step by Step when ABC cancelled it. Then he ordered a new comedy, Meego, from those two shows' producers, starring an actor to which they had previously tailored a TGIF show. That left one half hour, and it was filled with Gregory Hines' first television series -- which should have never been in a TGIFish lineup to begin with. Christened The Friday Night Block Party, Moonves thought he had a sure thing on his hands, promising far more to advertisers than any of the four comedies ended up delivering. Or, in the case of Family Matters and Step by Step, had been delivering. To cut down on make-goods, he blasted Meego into orbit six weeks into the season. Then he began shuffling the three he kept, as if they were going to suddenly show growth by moving to new time slots on the same night, with little advance notice. Then came the preemptions (of which there were five in November and December), during which Kids Say the Darndest Things and Candid Camera specials filled in -- and got higher ratings. In January came the Kids Say series -- which continued to make Hines' ratings look bad. February brought CBS' disastrous coverage of the Nagano Winter Olympics, which lost the network far more money than any of the Block Party shows did, as well as the Candid Camera series, which took Family Matters' place. In March, Moonves' axe started hovering over the schedule, looking for something to chop away at to ease the blow. And, poof, Gregory Hines and Step by Step were gone. Family Matters and Step by Step returned that summer to burn off unaired episodes, but Moonves apparently had some grudge against Gregory Hines, opting to throw seven episodes in the garbage of the only one of these four shows that got any positive press at all. What we're sure he doesn't want you to know is that the series did rather well in a trio of special airings after Cosby, but, unlike Everybody Loves Raymond, he didn't like it enough to move it there permanently.

    Anatole

    Anatole

    Follow
    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

    CBS (ended 1996)
    Based, in part, on the life of co-creator Robin Schiff, Almost Perfect centered around high-strung Kim Cooper and laid-back Mike Ryan. Kim, a writer for a police show called Blue Justice, found herself at the top of her game after being promoted to show runner. Mike, meanwhile, was a hotshot district attorney. Like all great odd couples, sparks flew the moment they met, and they soon were an item. The relationship and the promotion would have made it truly perfect for Kim -- if not for one thing. How to juggle a heavy workload and maintain a healthy sex life? Offering occasional support for them were the Blue Justice writing staff -- neurotic yuppie Gary Karp; burnt-out eccentric Neal Luder; and naive, boyish Rob Paley. Entertainment president told to make "young, hip, edgy" shows, or else. Entertainment president makes "young, hip, edgy" shows. Entertainment president gets canned anyway. New regime comes in. New regime doesn't want any of former entertainment president's "young, hip, edgy" shows. New regime cancels former entertainment president's "young, hip, edgy" shows. One would think that's what happened behind the scenes of the show-within-a-show, Blue Justice. But really that's what happened behind the scenes at CBS with the show itself, Almost Perfect. After performing well both on Sunday after Cybill and Monday after The Nanny, the new brass may have felt they'd be wearing their bias on their sleeve if they didn't renew it, no matter how obvious it was that they thought of it as the inherited stepchild. In fact, out of 11 new series from their ill-fated 1995 fall lineup, Almost Perfect was the only one to return for a second season. But not without a struggle. CBS, believing the workplace scenes the only good part of a (ahem) romantic comedy, told the producers Kevin Kilner had to go. Not wanting to end up cancellation #11, they gave Kilner the unceremonious boot, then saved face by telling the press they agreed with the network's decision. And for what? CBS neglected to promote the series when it returned in the fall, deliberately omitted it from a two-page fall preview, ran its season premiere late, punished it with a bad time slot, and, not even a month later, sent it away on lifetime hiatus the minute their expensive, heavily-reworked prize, Ink, debuted. At least it wasn't alone. Lead-out Public Morals was sent away with it -- after all of one episode. The show was given a less than faithful 13-episode order for season two. It shut down production the first week of November, 1996, before the last 3 were filmed. The 6 episodes that then-entertainment president Les Moonves (the new regime) couldn't be bothered to air were shown on the Lifetime Network in 1997.

    Welcome to The Adventures of Hyperman guide at TV Tome. This show is about a naïve superhero alien sent to Earth to protect it. Not knowing much about it, he teams up with a genius Earthling. Together with his dog, they take on an interdimensional villain as well as others who wish to do bad things to the planet. The Adventures of Hyperman was a cross-promotional property including this TV series, a computer game, and a web site. It combines crazy cartoon humor, pop culture references, and education. Each 15-minute episode has an "educational moment" given by Emma, where the wackiness is discontinued for a moment while a scientific reality is briefly explained. There's also quite a bit of self-referential humor. The characters will occasionally respond to the narrator, and they are aware that there's going to be an "educational moment" each episode. Hyperman Hyperman is a superhero alien from the planet Do-wop. He is a Junior Agent at the intergalactic organization W.A.R.P., which has assigned him to protect planet Earth. He has the superpowers to fly, live (and talk) in the vacuum of space, and to give out and take a pretty bad beating. Studd Puppy Hyperman's sidekick, a blue space dog, has the power to eat and digest pretty much anything. Emma C. Squared An honor student at Einstein University, the human girl known as Emma has taken on the added responsibility of teaching Hyperman about science and local Earth customs. It is also her fault that Entrobe was brought into this dimension. The Comptroller (aka C.P.) The Comptroller is an alien reminiscent of a giant cat. He works at W.A.R.P., and is responsible for assigning and overseeing Hyperman's missions, which is a job that he would love to get out of. The Governing Body Composed of various face parts, the Governing Body is in charge of W.A.R.P., and C.P. has to answer to it. Entrobe When Emma made a mistake in a giant math problem, Entrobe burst forth into this dimension. His whole purpose in life is to destroy the Earth, one way or another.
