    CBS
    Broadway's best have been recognized every year in this awards event since April 4, 1947. First televised broadcast was in 1967. The Tony Awards typically features musical numbers from nominated musicals. Over the years, they have occasionally featured excerpts (live and/or filmed) from nominated plays, as well. Over the years, the telecast has been hosted by the likes of Angela Lansbury, Hugh Jackson and Rosie O'Donnell, who, at the height of her popularity, boosted the ratings considerably. Networks airing the program have varied and sometimes technical awards have been presented on a second PBS broadcast directly preceeding the main event. While honoring the best of Broadway, it is the single biggest promotional event for New York Theatre each year.moreless

    My Little Margie

    My Little Margie

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1955)
    My Little Margie was the story of Margie Albright (played by Gale Storm), the vivacious, irrepresable, 21-year-old daughter of Vernon Albright (played by former silent screen star, Charles Farrell), a widowed executive at the investment-counseling firm of Honeywell & Todd. The Albrights resided in a Fifth Avenue apartment in New York. Margie was always trying to help her father get a client, avoid a designing woman, or just to act his age as she felt he should. Margie's elaborate plans almost always included a disguise of some sort, she masqueraded as everything from a male opera singer to Vern's mother to her own, non-exsistant sister to the Albright's equally non-exsistant maid. Usually helping her with her schemes were the spunky Mrs. Odett's, the Albright's aged neighbor, and Freddie Wilson, Margie's ardent boyfriend, whom Vern disliked intently. Other characters in the mix were Mr. Honeywell, Vern's exasperated boss; Roberta, Vern's girlfriend; and Charlie, the elevator operator in the Albright's apartment building. In 1952, the TV series My Little Margie became a radio series, with Gale Storm and Charles Farrell reprising their roles in original episodes which ran concurrently with the TV series.moreless

    The Mask

    The Mask

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1997)
    This show is based on the hit movie about a lower then regular guy who finds an enchanted mask. When he puts the mask on, he becomes a totally zany superhero who fights crime and makes a huge production of himself. He can instantaneously make his clothes change to something else, a body part change shape, pull anything out of his pockets, etc. Whenever Ipkiss is wearing the mask, there are no rules. For those who believe that comedian Jim Carrey is actually a cartoon disguised in human form, the 1995-1997 cartoon season offered abundant evidence. Three of Carrey's starring vehicles were adapted to the small screen: Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and The Mask. Of the three, The Mask was probably the most obvious choice for adaptation. The feature film was a digitally-enhanced human cartoon, based on the Dark Horse comic book. The animated series continued the adventures of nerdy Stanley Ipkiss, who discovered an 11th-century green mask that transformed him into an invulnerable, super-powered loony. In the cartoon, The Mask was an Edge City crime fighter, aided by girlfriend Peggy and dog Milo. Red-mo-hawked bad scientist Pretorious supplied most of the crime, while the insane Kablam added a dose of toxic mayhem. In place of Jim Carrey, who was not involved with the show, Rob Paulsen supplied the title character's voice. The switch apparently didn't bother Mask devotees, who made the show a hit in its three seasons on CBS. Category: Animation/ Comedy, Kids/ Family Description: Whenever Stanley Ipkiss, a shy young man, puts on the mysterious mask believed to be owned by the Norse god of Mischief, Loki, he turns into an uncontrollable green superhero in Edge City.moreless

    Evening Shade

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1994)
    This gentle rural sitcom, Evening Shade, starred Burt Reynolds as Wood Newton, an ex-pro football star who returned to his Arkansas home town of Evening Shade to coach the high school football team (the Mules), which had not won a game for two years. His wife Ava was elected the town's prosecuting attorney while pregnant with the couple's fourth child. Although their eldest son Taylor was the team quarterback, he inherited little of his father's sporting prowess. Assisting Wood is Herman Stiles, a fragile mathematics teacher uncommonly unsuited to the task of football coaching. Other regulars included cantankerous Dr Elldridge and Ava's father Evan, who disapproves of Wood's laid-back lifestyle and who has never forgiven him for stealing his daughter away at such a young age. (Ava was 18 when she got hitched to the 30-year-old Wood.) The series was narrated by Ossie Davis as Ponder Blue, the laconic and philosophical proprietor of Ponder Blue's Barbecue Villa, around which much of the action takes place. Evening Shade was marked by its sharp writing and measured, almost leisurely pacing, a style dictated by Reynolds with his deliberately understated performance as Newton (he also produced, wrote and directed episodes).

    The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour was hosted by Glen Campbell who received quite a following during his stint on "The Smothers Brothers Show". With his easy manner and popular music, Glen won quite a TV following leading to his own CBS series, "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour".

    CBS (ended 2007)
    CBS' Pirate Master sends 16 modern-day pirates on a high seas adventure to live as buccaneers and travel around the Caribbean island of Dominica searching for hidden treasure of $1 million. Over the course of 33 days, these pirates will live aboard a massive 179 foot, square-rigged barque and will embark on extraordinary expeditions while deciphering clues along the way. Gold coins (real money which the pirates get to keep) will be given out after each expedition, but not to everyone. This gold plays a key role as pirates make deals with each other or maneuver for long-term security. One pirate will also be made captain of the ship and will assign roles and chores to the remaining crew members. This sets the tone for either law and order, or betrayal and sabotage - against which the crew can choose to mutiny. Each episode finishes on the ship at Pirate's Court, a lively gathering not unlike Survivor's, in which one individual is eliminated and "cut adrift." One pirate will eventually be the first to find the greatest booty, worth $500,000, and claim the title of "Pirate Master."moreless

    For the first time, Pete Young (Jeremy Sumpter) takes a risk--perhaps the only risk of his young life--when he applies for and lands his dream job as a batboy for the New York Empires. The problem is that his single mother, Lynne (Mare Winningham) has no idea what he's up to. Until now, he's been the golden boy while his rebellious older sister, Betsy (Kirsten Storms), has always been in the doghouse. Pete attends a strict Catholic high school where he hangs out with his best friend, Mike (Dan Byrd), who hopes to cash in on his friend's new position in life. On the job, Pete becomes a member of a new family that includes Conrad Dean (Dean Cain), the team's captain and star third baseman and one of the boy's all-time idols, who takes on the role of an older brother. Also in the clubhouse are Pete's boss, Lou Russo (Christopher Lloyd), a gruff but fair equipment manager who becomes a much-needed father figure; Carlos Tavares (John Ortiz), a rookie who believes that Pete is his good luck charm, and Jose Marquez (JD Pardo), the Empires' territorial head batboy. Pete is over the moon at being part of his favorite team but he must still balance life at home and life in the big leagues as he faces the moral dilemmas and curve balls that are thrown his way.

    Suspense

    Suspense

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1954)
    Suspense was one of network television's earliest series and, like many of the medium's first efforts, was adapted from a long-running radio program. Episodes began with a ominous off-camera voice announcing, "And now, a tale well calculated to keep you in...Suspense!" With a few exceptions, this anthology was not an outright "horror" program (as was Lights Out or Inner Sanctum) but was designed to put characters in dangerous or threatening situations that built to a suspenseful climax. The somewhat low-budget series was performed live each week so it had its share of flubbed lines and technical snafus and episodes were generally confined to a couple of minimal sets. Suspense, however, made up for these shortcomings with inventive writing and a cavalcade of top-notch actors, some already established and many up-and-coming future stars. The program was rather highly regarded for it's overall quality (for the time) and the calibre of it's scripts. Like practically all of TV's earliest live series, Suspense was never rerun, preserved only on kinescope films to be shown in markets not able to air network programs live from New York. Most episodes were considered lost but, as luck would have it, a huge cache of Suspense programs were "discovered" and released on DVD in 2007.moreless

    Sammo Law is a Chinese law officer and a martial arts expert transferred to America looking for an old nemesis. During the search, Sammo will join the police department and work with a group of detectives on police cases.

    The show ran for two years on CBS, and it endured cast revamps, which were probably the main reason why the show ended only after two years.

    After only 5 episodes, Tammy Lauren exited the show, and both Louis Mandylor and Tom Wright exited the show after the first season. During the first season, a new character was introduced (played by Arsenio Hall) and was soon made a regular.

    People loved the show, because it was a good combination of action, martial arts and comedy, but not enough to keep it going.moreless

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1993)
    Set in the small town of Angel Falls, this steamy primetime CBS soap followed the lives of three familys: the Snows, the Larsons and the Harrisons. Despite it's allstar cast, the series was unwisely canceled after only six, 1-hour episodes in the fall of 1993. If given a chance, it could have been the next "DALLAS"!

    In the series opener, Rae Dawn Snow (Chelsea Field)returned to Angel Falls with her teenage son Sonny (Jeremy London), for her father Suds Snow's funeral. Suds left Rae Dawn the family poolhall in his will, so she decided to remain in town with Sonny and run it.

    Shortly after returning to town, Rae Dawn resumed her steamy affair with her first love, rancher Eli Harrison (Brian Kerwin). Eli was now married to alcholic Genna (Kim Cattrall). They had two daughters, young Sophie (Ashlee Lauren) and teenage Molly (Cassidy Rae). When gossip spread through town that Eli and Rae Dawn were spotted skinni-dipping at the lake together, Genna turned to the new ranch hand her husband had hired, Toby Riopelle (Robert Rusler), for comfort. Toby, a drifter who had just arrived in Angel Falls, was on the run from the law and a secret past.

    Highschool football coach Luke Larson (James Brolin) and his wife Hadley's (Peggy Lipton)marriage was falling apart following the death of their infant son, Robbie (Jimmy Baker)2 years earlier. Luke became increasingly concerned about his wife's mental state of mind following their son's death, and his gossipy and opinionated mother Irene (Jean Simmons)offered him little support. Instead, a hard as nails Irene said that Hadley needed to put Robbie's death behind her, pointing out that she too lost a baby, and got over it.

    Rae Dawn's son Sonny had a hard time fitting in at his new high school when he was teased by his football teammates about his mother being the town tramp. After getting kicked off the team for fighting to defend his mother's honor, Sonny came home early and caught her in bed with a very married Eli. Soon a romance began to bloom between Sonny and Eli's daughter Molly. The relationship made both Rae Dawn and Eli very nervous...
