    The City (1999)

    Follow
    CTV (ended 2000)
    The City aired on Canadian networks from March of 1999 until June of 2000. Although often confused with the short-lived American spin-off daytime drama The City (1993 - 1995), Canada's primetime soap The City was a gritty drama set against a Toronto backdrop. Lawyer Katherine Strachan Berg is the central character of the show, and much of the first season focuses on her relationship with her husband, real estate tycoon Jack Berg, and her son, Strachan. She gets one heck of a shock when her former lover (now a priest), Shane Devlin, comes back into her life, and it's Katherine and Shane's former relationship, and Strachan's true paternity, that got this show off on the right foot. Although the show didn't do too badly in the ratings, both it and Power Play were cancelled to be replaced with two newcomers -- Paul Gross' Steelstring (which never did hit the airwaves) and The Associates (which, like The City, was cancelled after only two seasons). Although it's also been refered to as Flesh and Blood (the working title) and Deep in the City (the American title), on Canadian networks, it was always just The City. Broadcasting Information:

    March 1999 - May 1999: Tuesday 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM
    November 1999 - June 2000: Friday 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    The David Steinberg Show

    The David Steinberg Show

    Follow
    CTV (ended 1977)
    Relatively short-lived Canadian series featuring comedian David Steinberg playing himself, hosting a fictional variety show. While the series depicted the on-air humour, it also depicted the comic adventures behind the scenes. It featured a slew of Second City performers, most of whom later starred in "Second City TV", which was much more sucessful. Joe Flaherty's alter-ego, Kirk Dirkwood, was the somewhat neurotic stage manager who always wanted to be a performer, and finally did near the end. He would appear as a different patient every week for an eccentric psychiatrist played by Steinberg on the show. Dave Thomas played James MacGregor, a hot-tempered Scottish security guard. Martin Short played Johnny Del Bravo, David's narcistic cousin and a whiny, untalented singer. John Candy was Spider Reichman, the 60's-oriented musician, and Andrea Martin played Julie Liverfoot, Steinberg's lazy, sleazy secretary and Reichman's singer. Many shades of SCTV characters can be seen in this series: The straight man character so personalized by Flaherty, the smug, cheerful music maker played by Candy... there were even specific characters that can be seen, like Thomas' Angus Crock in MacGregor and Short's Jackie Rogers, Jr in Del Bravo. They weren't the only co-stars, however; in fact, the other two almuni both played multiple roles. Bill Saluga played Vinnie DeMilo, the Italian-accented, fast-talking owner of the Hello Deli, located across the street from the studio (who was also Kirk's agent) and Raymond J. Johnson, Jr, the confused direction-seeker who appeared out of nowhere randomly throughout the show. Trudy Young doubled as actress Bambi Markowitz and Margie, the sassy waitress at the Deli. It should be noted that Saluga's character of Raymond J. Johnson, Jr ("Now, you can call me Ray, and you can call me Ray J..." was always the beginning of his lengthy response to whoever called him Mr. Johnson) had been being performed in Las Vegas since as early as the 50's, and appeared on variety show "Red Foxx" and guest starred on many others, always unexpectedly appearing and wondering where he was. Recently, he even appeared on an episode of "The Simpsons". As for David Steinberg himself? He became a television director, working on such sitcoms as "The Parent Hood", "Newhart", "The Golden Girls", "Seinfeld", "Mad About You", "Friends", and "Designing Women".moreless

Kreskin went on to appear on 'The Tonight Show' 61 times from 1970 to 1980. In the 1990s he became popular again, appearing on 'Late Night With David Letterman several times.
