    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

    CBS (ended 1993)
    After spending five years in prison, having been set up by his mafioso cousin Vincent, John Francis Tenuti falls for another set-up by Vincent (within hours of his release), this time being framed for murder. Going on the lam, he soon acquires a Winnebago, and assumes the alias Johnny Bago. He's constantly on the run from hit men sent by the mob, as well as from his ex-wife Beverly, who is also his parole officer. And just in case you couldn't tell from that description, it's a comedy. A pretty good one, in my opinion. Every episode ends with a voice-over of Johnny reading a letter he writes to his mother. (Of course, Vincent's people always get the letter first, so Don Roselli can read it and they can track Johnny; when they're done with each letter, they put it back in Ma Tenuti's mail box.) Johnny Bago's Theme by Jimmy Buffett
    Life's too complicated, it's too complex
    Bounced from town to town like rubber checks
    Didn't know at the time
    I'd pay double for the crime
    Not to mention a serious problem with the opposite sex
    I guess that's friggin' that
    Like an anchovy to an alley-cat
    Johnny Bago's gonna have his say
    A little further down the lost highway
    You see, that's friggin' that
    Talkin' to a 'bago diplomat

    "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.

    CBS (ended 1996)
    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. Kid Chaos Kid Chaos is Entrobe's overeager sidekick. E. Brian Small A self-described genius, E. Brian Small is determined to prove himself Emma's intellectual superior.moreless

    CBS (ended 1998)
    Welcome to the To Have & To Hold guide at TV Tome. We follow the lives of Annie (Moira Kelly) and Sean (Jason Beghe), a slightly "crazy" and confused newly-wed couple. He is a cop; she a public defender, and their cases quite often put them up against each other as we follow Annie and Sean in their professional and personal lives. Sean's big Irish family is also an important part of the story. There's his grumpy father Robert (John Cullum) and his generous but meddling mother Fiona (Fionnula Flanagan), and Sean's two rebellious younger brothers Tommy (Stephen Largay) and Michael (Jason Wiles), who are both cops. And last, but certainly not least, there's Sean's older brother Patrick (Stephen Lee), a firefighter and established family father who is going through a mid-life crisis. Coincidentally, Patrick's wife Carolyn (Colleen Flynn) is Annie's sister; making them all one big and ultimately eccentric family. To Have & to Hold was created by Joanne T. Waters, and aired Wednesday at CBS during the 1998-1999 TV season. It was a romantic family drama with some healthy doses of down-to-earth humor thrown in. The writing wasn't always the best, but the two lead actors, Moira Kelly and Jason Beghe, put in some excellent work and had a great chemistry between them. Unfortunately, the show was never really given the chance to develop itself and grow on the viewers. No more than thirteen episodes were produced, and only nine of these aired on CBS. The last four episodes have all been aired abroad, though.moreless

    CBS (ended 1999)
    L.A. Doctors is a professional, well-made medical drama about a trio of successful Los Angeles physicians, Roger Cattan, Tim Lonner and Evan Newman. 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. It will be sorely missed among all us fans.moreless
