    Several years after vowing that she would never work with Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason, Delta Burke reunited with the team that made her famous on Designing Women for this semi-sequel.

    After the death of her Congressman husband, Ray, Suzanne Sugarbaker moved to Washington to fill his seat in The House of Representatives as favor for the governor. On the way, Suzanne drags her mentally retarded brother, Jim; adopted daughter, Desiree; and her maid Sapphire Jones along for the ride. Working under her were three very different women; the first, Natalie Hollingsworth, Administrative Assistant, was an uptight working woman determined to make it to the top despite the fact that she was having an affair with a imprisoned married Congressman. Second, was Sissy Emerson, Press Secretary, a former staff writer for the Washington Post whose life had gone downhill after she began drinking. And lastly her secretary, Jennifer Malone, a frail housewife, whose philandering husband, an assistant coach for the Washington Redskins, ran off with a interpretive halftime dancer. Later, working in the office was a new intern/secretary, Veda Walkman, (who replaced the Malone character), a girl just out of high school who constantly annoyed the rest of the women with her "Generation X" perspective. Also working in the office was Dave, an office assistant who was always seen in the background from episode 3 on, but rarely had speaking lines or was credited. Also mainly in the background was Adam, another office assistant.

    Many people have expressed interest in getting episodes of the show on video or DVD. Since masses of series are now getting a DVD releases, go to www.tvshowsondvd.com/, register and vote on the show (and any other series you want to see on DVD). Support from TV fans does make a difference in getting the studios to release series on disc.moreless

    "Someday my prince will come Someday I'll find my love And how thrilling that moment will be When the prince of my dreams comes to me He'll whisper 'I love you' And steal a kiss or two Though he's far away I'll find my love someday Someday when my dreams come true Someday when my dreams come true"

    "Three young, single women became roommates in a most unusual way. Tracy was a shy, trusting English teacher who left her fiancé when she found out he had been married twice before and that one of his ex-wives was his sexy business partner. What she salvaged, however, was a fabulous Manhattan penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park. Tony, the owner of the apartment, a globetrotting friend of her almost husband, had given it to them for a year, rent free, as a wedding present. Apparently he was a little forgetful, having also loaned to the apartment to Georgy, a recently widowed English princess (and former showgirl) who had moved to the States while her late husband's children fought with her attorney over his will. Since Georgy had no friends in New York, she was more than happy to share the huge apartment with Tracy. The third 'princess' was Tracy's longtime roommate and best friend, Melissa, an outspoken, stereotypical Jewish American who sold cosmetics at a department store." (Tim Brooks and Earle Marsh, The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows 1946-Present)

    After completing the series' eight-episode order, Julie Hagerty quit. Even in the face of bottom 5 Nielsen ratings, universally-scathing reviews, behind-the-scenes problems, affiliate defections, and the general apathy of Fran Drescher and CBS programming head Jeff Sagansky, the producers actually considered recasting the part, apparently. Before they managed to get very far, CBS saved them the trouble by recasting the entire show with Rescue 911. By year's end, the network's Friday night lineup had been dismantled.

    Theme song "Someday My Prince Will Come" written by Frank Churchill (music) and Larry Morey (lyrics) performed by The Roches

He was assisted by a small crew: muscle-man Teddy (played by Danny Aiello's real-life son); surveillance expert Jonas; and sexy Geri, who used her looks to her advantage while undercover. Downtime was spent at local restaurant Trattoria Spaghetto, owned by a friend of Anthony's.moreless

    CBS (ended 1995)
    Eye To Eye With Connie Chung was a news show that aired on the CBS network from 1993 to August of 1995.
    The show was hosted by Connie Chung as another avenue of exposure for her in addition to her time as co-anchor of The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.
    Her fall from grace and firing from the network came after an indiscretion during an interview where the mother of a famous conservative politician whispered something to her about Hilary Clinton, thinking she was not able to be heard. When the segment aired, the off-mic remark had been boosted to the point of being audible. This was felt by both political parties as being underhanded and taking advantage of an older woman and CBS decided to fire Chung from her position on the news and the show. She left the network shortly afterward.moreless

    Susan DeRuzza PhD (Shelley Long) is a successful marriage therapist and the author of a best-selling book on the subject, Giving And Forgiving. 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

    "Pilgrims James and Polly Winthrop have just survived their first Massachusetts winter. Now, along with their fellow settlers, they must decide whether or not to remain in the uncivilized New World and face yet another year of disease-and each other. But don't be fooled-it's Puritan fun. There's the man who dreams of building a new nation (though he can't even build a house); the bumbling village idiot; a girl so smart she may be burned at the stake; and a Grammy with an eye for strapping young men. "James, an affable young Pilgrim father, who always sees the glass as half full, wants to stay and fulfill the hopes and dreams of building a new nation, although he can't even build a house. James must also contend with his best friend, Cotton, the bumbling village idiot who wreaks more havoc than a New World winter. James' lovely, strong-minded wife, Polly, wants to stand by her man, but her patience is tried by his unwavering optimism as well as the 50 percent mortality rate. Meanwhile, their three young children -- boy-crazy Abigail, so-smart-she-may-be-burned-at-the-stake Elizabeth, and slow-witted William -- are entertained by their Grammy, a wizened senior citizen who has quite the eye for strapping young men. Even though they live in an era centuries apart from today, the issues they face have remarkable and humorous similarities to modern life." (CBS press materials) Much better than this makes it sound, Thanks had no real chance at making it on network TV in 1999: a vicious satire on American pieties and religious bigotry? The air of cheerfully goofy anachronism was quite winning, as were the scene-stealing performances by veteran Leachman and newcomer Centner. But, in August, no one was watching except me...moreless

    CBS (ended 1997)
    "Life... and Stuff" centered on a husband (Rick Reynolds) and wife (Pam Dawber) who tried to keep their love-life fresh and cope with the uneasy truths of modern-day marriage. With his stressful job as an advertising executive and her long hours as a housewife and mother, there wasn't much time for romance or meaningful conversation...so they argued and yelled a lot! Their two sons, Jerry and Shawn, rarely said a word, instead spending their days glued firmly to the TV set. Rick's spaced-out unemployed kid brother, Andy, lived in a motor home in the driveway and spent his days barging in, stealing food and generally mooching from his elder sibling. Jordan, Nancy and Bernie were Rick's co-workers at the advertising agency, and Christine was Ronnie's loopy best friend. Based on stand-up comic Rick Reynold's critically acclaimed autobiographical one-man-show, "Only the Truth Is Funny," the show was compared to "Everybody Loves Raymond," though it was far darker and more cynical. Episodes commonly had a black-and-white fantasy sequence that harked back to "Father Knows Best," "Leave It to Beaver," and other classic shows and films, while Rick would go on to narrate that his life should have turned out like those family's lives. The six-episodes that were produced were slated to premiere in January of '97, but CBS pushed back the airdate to June, in order to completely kill off the series (isn't that usually the case?). Three episodes aired, and although a fourth was scheduled, it was replaced with a rerun of "Dave's World." Initially the show was supposed to return after the following week's 4th of July special, but instead CBS opted to air reruns of "Dave's World" for the remainder of the summer. If you have any additional information on the unaired episodes, please let me know. June 1997----Fridays----8:30----CBSmoreless
