    "Kitchen Confidential," based on Anthony Bourdain's memoir about food, drugs and working in the kitchens of top restaurants. It is a single camera comedy.

    Jack Bourdain, played by Bradley Cooper, had it all but that all changed after one wild night. Four years later, he only has a great girlfriend and an average job working in her restaurant as an aide in Pizza Chain Kitchen. But, when Pino Lugeria contacts him to become Head Chef of his famous restaurant, Nolita, Jack knows this is an offer he cannot refuse. To further back up the offer, his girlfriend tells him he cannot afford to pass up an opportunity like this.

    He then recruits his old friends, Seth Richman (Nicholas Brandon) the pastry chef, Teddy Wong (John Cho), the seafood Chef and Steven (Owain Yeoman) who is his sous-chef. Not everything is perfect, given that the previous wait staff, particularly Mimi (Bonnie Somerville), believe he will run the restaurant into the ground. But Pino, and everyone, will be witnessing if he is capable of steering clear of his old ways.moreless

    A variety/sketch show brought to you by a British comedian Tracey Ullman. The show was one of the first programs on the then-new FOX Network in the U.S. in the mid 1980s. Tracey's show was a sketch comedy show including lots of singing and dancing. "The Simpsons" appeared as short, animated sketches, interspersed between the main, live-action sketches.

    The Tracey Ullman Show led to the creation of the hit FOX show, "The Simpsons." It began as short skits on Ullman's Show. Overall the Simpsons made appearances in 48 episodes in the show's first three seasons and one additional appearance in the fourth and final season.moreless

    FOX (ended 1997)
    Welcome to the Ned and Stacey guide at TV Tome. The idea may not have been totally original--a man and a woman who can't stand each other enter a marriage of convenience--but the execution of Ned and Stacey makes it one of the most truly underappreciated sitcom classics of all time. Besides having first-class writing, N&S feaures eye-opening performances from its lead characters. Thomas Haden Church, best known as Lowell on Wings, created a different persona for himself and his impeccable and uncanny comic timing is a joy to watch. Debra Messing is just about perfect in her role as Stacey, and many will find her performances here even more fun to watch than her later role on Will & Grace. Greg Germann (later to be seen on Ally McBeal) and Nadia Dajani do not let down the show's high standard in their supporting roles. After the show's initial run on the Fox network, Ned and Stacey became an integral part of the USA Network's "USAM" comedy lineup, as it was on and off that network from 1998 until April 2001, gaining new popularity as it caught the eye of many a viewer who never saw it in the first place, including many Will & Grace fans who were curious to see this earlier incarnation of Grace Adler played by Debra Messing. After that, N&S junkies were out of luck, waiting and hoping that some network would pick up the 46 episodes of the show and begin showing them again. Then, on October 20, 2003, to our great delight, the cable channel WE (Women's Entertainment) began running the program again. It was Ned and Stacey heaven for their fans until late July 2004, when the network abruptly stopped running the show. We can only hope that some channel somewhere in the US will pick up the series once again. Until then, we'll just have to rely on memories. We hope this guide will help. If we hear of its return, we'll let you know, and you let us know if you hear anything first. If you have any questions about the data herein, e-mail me at Procyon3001@aol.com Pictured L-R: Nadia Dajani, Greg Germann, Thomas Haden Church, Debra Messing N&S showing in UK As of October 2004, Ned and Stacey can be seen by viewers in Great Britain on the Paramount Comedy channel. It's on every day at 2:30PM with repeats at 12:05AM, apparently!

    FOX (ended 2002)
    "I am the wild blue yonder. The front line in a never-ending battle between good... and not-so good. Together, with my stalwart sidekick, Arthur, and the magnanimous help of some other folks I know, we form the yin to villainy's malevolent yang. Destiny has chosen us. Wicked men! You face...The Tick!" The life of a superhero is not easy. There are not enough dangers. However, someone must fight evil and protect good. The few who face this challenge have to leave behind comfort, security and a little sanity. Jumping from roof to roof in one single jump, the mysterious blue justice defender The Tick (Patrick Warburton) patrols The City, and his limited knowledge of human life doesn't interfere with his desire to protect society. The frustrated and well-behaved accountant known as Arthur (David Burke) left his job to join The Tick as The Moth, and now they're a crime-fighting duo. Arthur has always secretly wished being a superhero. Well, not so secretly, since he used his moth outfit (which looks more like a bunny) to work. On this fight against injustice, The Tick also counts on Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell), a Latino superhero who never promotes himself without a worthy cause. His kryptonite is Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey), the government's number one weapon on the battle against supervillains. The Tick is based on the 'cult' comic character created by Ben Edlund. There was an animated version a few years ago. Check it out here. Originally planned as a 2000-2001 midseason replacement after The Simpsons on Sunday nights, and apparently never thought of as anything more than strike filler for a writer's strike which never happened, FOX toppers Sandy Grushow and Gail Berman changed their minds, keeping Malcolm in the Middle in the slot for another year and pushing The Tick back to fall. When The Tick finally went on the air, it was dumped on Thursdays. They didn't promote it very much, and needless to say, it didn't last very long.moreless

    This series from Victor Fresco (Andy Richter Controls the Universe) centers on several teen characters who work and hang out at the mall food court. There is 18-year-old, optimistic-but-not-ambitious Laz (Zachary Knighton, The Prince and Me); his 16-year-old angst-ridden and angry stepsister, Molly (Saige Thompson, 10-8: Officers on Duty); Laz's best friend Fred (Charlie Finn, Super Troopers); and Laz's new girlfriend Lily (Rachelle Lefevre, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow). Home base for Laz and Molly is a blended family formed by the marriage of Laz's dad, Rick (Matthew Glave, The Wedding Singer), and Molly's mom, Michelle (Amy Yasbeck, The Mask). Rick and Molly love all of their children, but they are particularly obsessed with the only product of their union together: the sweet, perfect and wise 8-year-old Gus (Frankie Ryan Manriquez). Laz and Fred both 18, have been friends forever. Just out of high school, and unsure what they want to do with their lives, they take jobs at a mall food court, at the lame "Yippee, Hot Dogs" run by the always yelling Mr.Hut (Maz Jobrani). There, Laz meets the girl of his dreams, the lovely and strong-willed Lily. Optimistic but not ambitious, Laz cuts a deal with his well-meaning but superficial dad Rick and equally superficial stepmom Michelle which allows Laz to continue living rent-free at home. All Laz has to do is keep an eye on his stepsister (Michelle's daughter), the angry, angst-ridden, 16-year-old Molly. Michelle and Rick hope that Laz will help socialize Molly and get her on the right track with the boy she likes - the sweet and very honest Jasper. Rounding out the family is the perfect and wise 8-year-old Gus, the only product of Rick and Michelle's union and the object of their obsession.

    FOX (ended 2005)
    Sean Finnerty and his lovely wife, Claudia, became parents right out of high school. Now 32, they struggle to keep their lives (and three children) under control. Claudia is a hostess at a swank restaurant, and Sean works in the subway tunnels. Working 9 to 5 and having three kids to maintain isn't an easy task, but they're doing the best that they can. Oldest daughter Lily, 14, is more than a handful. At that age where she thinks the world revolves around her, Lily devours the majority of the Finnerty's free time. Her little brother, Jimmy, is bookish to say the least, and stays out of trouble -- for the most part. And then there's the baby of the family, Henry, who's just a little off. Hyperactive and mischievous, Henry is usually secondary when it comes to problematic children. Helping Sean and Claudia deal with the brood is Sean's father, Walt, a crotchety man whose idea of a learning experience is teaching the boys how to dig a hole. If he hadn't been a father, he would have been a drill sergeant. Also helping to lighten the load is Sean's younger brother, Eddie, an unemployed stoner who spends his time hanging out with friends and "unknowingly" selling beepers to drug dealers. Over its first season the show evolved a unique take on standard sitcom structure. Each episode begins with a family crisis "explained" in flashbacks from various character's points of view, often overlapping, sometimes contradicting each other as we learn to distinguish what the narrators THINK happened from what we eventually learn REALLY happened. Since the Finnertys are at least nominally practicing Catholics, this usually involves issues of blame, responsibility, and guilt, guilt, guilt. In the third season, Grandpa Walt was phased out of the show (though he may appear in upcoming episodes). Sean and Eddie pooled their money and bought a bar (which Eddie initially intended to torch for the insurance money), which becomes the home away from home for the family. Music plays a big role in this series. Original music was written/performed by Ben Vaughn and Ween. The majority of the titles of the episodes are derived from pop songs. Emmy Nominations: 2001: Outstanding Choreography, Kenny Ortega for the episode "Mrs. Finnerty, You Have A Lovely Daughter" (lost).
