    Follow
    CBS (ended 1996)

    Central Park West was created by Darren Star, the man behind such hits as "Melrose Place" and "Sex and the City".

    Perhaps the most sophisticated prime time soap ever made, Central Park West premiered on September 13, 1995. It aired Wednesdays from 9:00 - 10:00 p.m. With a cast headlined by former Oscar nominee Mariel Hemingway, Central Park West centered around the glamorous and exciting life for the staff of trendy magazine 'Communique', owned by Allen Rush (Ron Leibman), "the Darth Vader of publishing". Mariel Hemingway played the role of Stephanie Wells, the newly appointed editor-in-chief of 'Communique'. Central to the plot is the rivalry between Stephanie and Allen's stepdaughter Carrie Fairchild (Mädchen Amick), a scheming Generation-X bitch who does her best to seduce Stephanie's writer husband Mark Merrill (Tom Verica). The series followed several other ambitious New Yorkers, their love, treachery, hopes and dreams through thick and thin. One of the most notable being the evil and deceitful Australian bombshell Rachel Dennis (Kylie Travis), the new fashion editor at 'Communique'.

    Stylish and with terrific dialogue, Central Park West was perfectly designed for the same young, fashion oriented Generation-X audience that had given "Melrose Place" such a warm welcome. Surprisingly, the show didn't deliever as good as expected and was taken off the air revamped and put back on the air during the summer of 1996. Mariel Hemingway had quit and the show now focused more on the older characters. CBS now aired two episodes a week and Gerald McRaney, Noelle Beck and film diva Raquel Welch joined the cast.

    Well-cast, well-played, fast-paced and brilliant. Central Park West is one of the greatest soaps to have been shown on TV. Don't miss the opportunity to watch this show all over again if you can. It's well worth it.moreless

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1996)
    ONE WEST WAIKIKI is a high-gloss, romantic comedy-drama set in Hawaii, created by Glen A. Larson. His inimitable storytelling and the unmistakable charisma of Cheryl Ladd and Richard Burgi combine to make One West Waikiki a hot new series. Forensics expert, Dr. Dawn 'Holli' Holliday (Cheryl Ladd) is hired away from the Los Angeles Coroner's office to be the State of Hawaii's new Medical Examiner. With a jurisdiction which stretches from the Hawaiian Islands to American Samoa and all points in between, it is a dream assignment, pitting Holli's cutting edge knowledge of Forensic Medicine and Homicide against the explosive world of crime in the burgeoning world of the Pacific Rim. Using all of those latest forensic skills so dominating the headlines in this era of the 'big trial,' Holli often finds herself at odds with the more conventional methods of Honolulu P.D., especially top homicide detective, Lt. Mack Wolfe (Richard Burgi), with whom she immediately develops a volatile, love-hate relationship. Mack is hard-headed, impulsive, and dismissive of modern science, but there's no one you'd rather have covering your back in a dangerous situation. This could the beginning of a beautiful, if sometimes impossible, friendship.

    When Holli first arrives, Mack is just coming off suspension, trying to clear his name after his partner is killed with Mack's own gun. Mack uses his tongue-in-cheek humor to insulate himself from the ugly realities of his job. A veteran of several failed relationships, including two marriages, he is nonetheless intrigued by the arrival of the beautiful and brainy new medical examiner. Of course, her logical, scientific approach to murder is diametrically opposite to his intuitive, go-with-your-gut style. However, she's gorgeous....he's handsome -- and you know what they say about opposites attracting, especially on those tropical nights in paradise.

    Rounding out the cast is Captain Dave Herzog (Paul Gleason), a by-the-book cop who has to keep his friend, Mack, out of trouble; Nui ShawNui Shaw (Elsie Sniffen), an ambitious field investigator for the State of Hawaii's Medical Examiner's office who Holli recruits early on to assist with her forensic investigations; and Kimo (Ogie Zulueta), a forensics technician in the PD and a friend of Mack's.

    When there's murder in paradise, whether they're looking through a microscope or knocking down a door, Holli and Mack are on the job at One West Waikiki.

    Welcome to The Twisted Adventures of Felix the Cat guide at TV.com.

    They say cats have nine lives, and Felix seems to have been no exception. Nearly thirty-five years after his first show, the wonderful, wonderful cat was meowing his way into the 1990's. CBS was so convinced that Felix should be welcomed aboard the Saturday morning lineup that they rushed out 55 five-second bumpers for the 1994 season. Unable to get a whole show out on time, the network was still able to introduce a new audience to the tricky feline by having him appear between established cartoons. But the proud Felix, for whom confidence was never a problem, marched up to the executive in charge of children's programming and demanded his own show. After all, he'd been a star since the 20's. He wasn't going to play second fiddle to a bunch of grungy, slacker 90's toons with no sense of panache. The network gave in—rumors at the time suggested Felix had a couple of connected guys in his bag of tricks— and in 1995, The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat debuted. The new series echoed its original, jerky 1920's style, where the characters appeared to bounce as they moved (think early Popeye). Responding to its star's demands of high quality, CBS employed Don Oriolo, son of original co-creator Joe Oriolo, as co-executive producer. The cartoon's look may have been an homage to Felix's silent era roots, but this was a Felix of the 90's, and he now had a speaking voice. In these new seven-minute "talkies," Felix employed not only his magic bag of tricks, but also his magic tail, an amazing appendage that could transform itself from a flashlight to a grappling hook to a sword and more, always coming out none the worse for wear. Felix caught on with 90's kids, but not in the same way he had in decades past. After a successful two-season run, the cat retired again, content to kick back and enjoy the royalty checks from all those creepy, eye-shaking clocks.moreless

Kids' WB Broadcast History When Rescue Heroes left CBS after January 2000, we all thought it was cancelled. But then a mysterious surprise happened: It came back on Kids' WB! On July 21, 2001 (after a one-and-a-half-year hiatus) at 11:00 AM! But later, when Kids' WB! was going to premiere some new shows for the 2001-02 season (The Mummy, The Nightmare Room, Yu-Gi-Oh!, etc.) on September 15, 2001, the World Trade Towers were destroyed in the 9/11 tragedy! They had to pre-empt the premieres (since that's the time of praying and stuff, some people died in the Trade Towers, and if they must watch TV, they'd be watching news), but in the meantime, show something. So Kids' WB! kept jumping around their Saturday schedule with Pokémon, Jackie Chan Adventures, and Cardcaptors (and sometime RH and Cubix) repeats, so they decided to move Rescue Heroes to Wednesdays at 3:00 PM starting September 19, 2001, although that meant Cardcaptors could only be shown 5 days a week rather than 6. They returned it to Saturdays on May 25, 2002 at 8:00 AM to replace the earlier showing of X-Men: Evolution. RH was kept on Wednesdays, though. It lost its Saturday time to finish up th second season of the Zeta Project on July 13, 2002, but remained on Wednesdays. RH continued its Wednesday timeslot for almost a year until its final airing August 27, 2003, when it was cancelled to give Scooby-Doo its sixth day a week.moreless

They all care for their patients and want to help them as best as possible. But in order to do so, they have to turn their back on the HMO's corporate red tape and practice the kind of medicine where the patients - not the money - matter more. Together, they put their careers on the line and open their own practice to save patients and give them the treatment they deserve. The three friends join forces with beatiful gynaecologist Sarah Church and they often bend both law and order in their quest to cure both sickness and soul. The series focuses on these four doctors as well as their families and patients. All the leading actors deliver solid performances: Ken Olin as Roger Cattan, Matt Craven as Tim Lonner, Rick Roberts as Evan Newman and Sheryl Lee as Sarah Church. The recurring characters include Deirdre O'Connell as sympathetic nurse Suzanne Blum, and Melora Walters as the loyal and hard-working but somewhat troubled secretary Felicity. L.A. Doctors aired Mondays, 10:00 - 11:00 p.m. on CBS. Featuring some very well-written storylines and impressive acting, it was a very acclaimed series. In 1999 it won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Television New Dramatic Series. It was also nominated for several other awards, including a 1999 TV Guide Award nomination for Favorite New Series. However, L.A. Doctors was a short-lived show. The show struggled with the ratings and although many TV series do so during its first season, CBS decided not to give L.A. Doctors a chance and cancelled it after its first season.

    Chelsea Stevens is a one-woman cooking, decorating and entertaining machine who thinks every crisis can be solved by a decorative centerpiece. As America's reigning queen of domesticity, style, and gracious living, she has created a media empire consisting of magazines, video, and television spots. Enter small-town girl Jane Sokol, who has been brought to the Big Apple to manage Chelsea's business after she sells it to Ferber Enterprises. Level-headed Jane goes head to head with neurotic control-freak Chelsea in her daily attempts to handle budgets and Chelsea's difficult staff -- not to mention Chelsea's meddling interference in her life. Backing up Chelsea and Jane is a mildly amusing office staff that hits on every extreme stereotype we've been seeing for years. These characters include: gay interior designer Mr. John -- an older British man whose dialogue mostly involves his kinky private life, wisecracking food stylist Trudy -- whose dominant personality is repeatedly attributed to her being Jewish, and Chelsea's oh-so-charmingly inept secretary Terry. Recurring roles include Chelsea's obnoxious attorney Bobby and hick farmhand neighbor Earl (played by Alan Autry). Whether it was mocking or a tribute, critics could not help but notice the similarities between Chelsea and Martha Stewart -- who has been rumored to be difficult to work with. To alleviate any hard feelings, Style and Substance implied a rivalry between the two -- adding some additional wit to the scripts. Despite raves over both Jean Smart's brilliant and energetic performance and Nancy McKeon's ability to sharply play the exasperated straight man to Chelsea's weirdness, their office antics fell flat with viewers. The series did not produce instant ratings in its CBS Monday night timeslot, resulting in its cancellation after only five episodes without an opportunity to build an audience. Style and Substance returned later as a Wednesday night summer fill-in and actually faired much better, but it was too little too late.moreless
