    'Til Death is a comedy about the triumphs and tribulations of marriage and friendship from very different perspectives. It's about the funny – and sometimes annoying – things that happen between husbands, wives, parents, children, neighbors and friends day after day after day... EDDIE (Brad Garrett) and JOY STARK (Joely Fisher) are your typical long-time married couple: Eddie is the unemotional, cynical and tell-it-like-it-is husband while Joy is the caring, loving wife who on a daily basis has to put up with all things Eddie. You could say Joy is the yin to Eddie's yang. They've been through it all together – and actually survived. Joy and Eddie are the perfect fit, and as much as they gripe about their marriage, Eddie really does love Joy, and Joy, despite it all, loves Eddie for all his shortcomings. Living in suburban Philadelphia, Eddie and Joy live somewhat idyllic lives. Eddie is a high school history teacher, and Joy works at a local travel agency. Their daughter, ALLY (Lindsey Broad), is in a long-term relationship with DOUG (Timm Sharp), whom Eddie and Joy consider unworthy of their princess. This season, Ally and Doug return from their trek in the Ecuadorian rainforest and set up camp in the Starks' backyard. Meanwhile, Eddie decides to write a book about the Hindenburg, and Joy comes to terms with the job market in the current economy.moreless

    This half-hour comedy follows the life of 11-year-old Oliver Beene (Grant Rosenmeyer). It's 1962 and Oliver's world is chaotic. His dentist father, Jerry (Grant Shaud) likes to spend Sundays drilling his kids' teeth; his mom, Charlotte (Wendy Makkena) does her best to be the happy homemaker; and his brother Ted (Andy Lawrence) has a transistor radio practically glued to his head listening to sports. Oliver's life is tolerable thanks to his friends, heavyweight Neal (Ben Bookbinder) and lightweight Michael (Taylor Emerson), who is obviously gay in a time when that still means happy. The show is narrated by the adult Oliver who depicts the trials of growing up during the Cold War with a wickedly wry humor. Oliver longs for normalcy, something that's difficult when the family is practicing drills for the end of civilization. Oliver also has to contend with Mrs. Heller (Annie Korzen), a teacher who hates him; Joyce (Daveigh Chase), a classmate who thinks she's married to him; and Bonnie (Amy Castle), the red-haired girl who's out of his league. Flashbacks and flash-forwards vividly re-create the Kennedy-era '60s in this fast-paced comedy.moreless

    Banzai became a cult TV classic when it originally aired on Channel 4 in Britain, is the ultimate comedic interactive betting show. BANZAI challenges the audience with a series of practical jokes, unpredictable stunts and hilarious gags and encourages viewers to bet each other on the final outcome.

    The show is hosted by MR. BANZAI, a mysterious figure who is like an enigma wrapped within a conundrum. He oversees most of the bets on the show and is considered to be somewhat of a judge in all matters BANZAI. The show also features a wild cast of BANZAI characters who host the bizarre scenarios. These include: CHEEKY CHAPPY, the lovable rogue who dreams of one day creating the perfect Naked Lady Gamble; LADY ONE QUESTION, the intrepid interviewer who simply asks celebrities a question, then does absolutely nothing; and MR. SHAKE HANDS MAN, who has perfected the science of handshaking as he tries to see how long he can shake hands with celebrities before they pull away.

    BANZAI contains footage previously aired in the UK version of the show. However, because it was feared Americans would not be able to recognize British celebrities, new segments were filmed in the USA featuring more-common American celebrities. Also, some of BANZAI's more outrageous skits, usually involving nudity and body parts, won't air on FOX.

    BANZAI is a wild and irreverent romp that cuts through the wide sea of traditional television. Viewers at home can wager with friends and family to discover who can best predict the very unpredictable outcomes.

    When the show aired on FOX, viewers are also able to bet on the outcomes of the segments on the official BANZAI website at FOX.com or use their wireless text messaging systems. All players receive digital prizes such as screensavers, wallpapers, system sounds, icons, etc.

    In late February 2004, Comedy Central bought the rights to the short-lived FOX series and planned on airing the show Thursdays at 10:30 pm beginning March 2004. The deal included the broadcast rights to all 10 produced installments (four of which never aired on FOX) as well as the option to produce new episodes. Though the show never did well in the ratings on FOX, Comedy Central executives were reportedly impressed by its performance in several key male demographics. The show ran for only five episodes on Comedy Central, until is was pulled for reruns of Insomniac with Dave Attell. The unaired episodes were never broadcast on Comedy Central.

    FOX (ended 2002)
    This half-hour comedy chronicles the hilarious world of Christopher Titus and his totally messed-up poor white trash family. Between his drunken father, his dimwitted brother, and his goody-goody best friend, it's amazing Titus is alive, let alone engaged to a "normal" girl. Titus adapted Christopher Titus' stand-up routine in a novel way: each episode is narrated by Titus from a black & white "Neutral Space," from which he comments on the events as they unfold, punctuated by short, surreal flashbacks to his childhood and adolescence. The hilarious interplay between these three levels of narrative is sometimes amazingly complex and even contradictory, highlighting the exceedingly black nature of the show's humor. Alas, the Fox network lived up to its history of commissioning innovative television and then sabotaging it; the third and blackest season was made particularly incoherent by showing the sequences out of logical order. Titus never made it to syndication, and is currently unavailable — a buried gem — until its release on DVD in September 2005.moreless

His boss Russ is a lunatic and his coworker Meryl, a 40-something sexpot, is continuously making sexual advances towards him. As Sam tries to find a way to cope with the demands of his career, the social demands of his crazy roommates get in the way. He lives with his brother Sully, his college buddy Piper (who he secretly has a crush on) and Lizzy, the sexy bartender at their local hangout. Through the pressures of work and the craziness of his home life, Sam's life is the subject of a pretty wild sitcom. There were some major changes for the second season, such as the unexplained dropping of Sam's female roommates Piper (Amanda Loncar) and Lizzie (Sarah Wright), and switching the focus of the show so that most of the action took place at Sam's workplace. The Loop only lasted two seasons. In fact, since FOX had already cancelled the show before the second season aired, the second season aired as an episode "burn-off".moreless

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

    Sam and Max is about a dog and a rabbity thing. That's what you would think when you first see it. Then you would notice that the dog is six feet tall and dresses like a Canine Columbo. You would also take note that the rabbit is 3 feet tall and wears nothing but a manic grin. These bizarre creatures are Sam and Max, the Freelance Police. Getting their orders in the form of brief, cryptic phone calls from the Commissioner, a man who they have never met but is the duo's only contact with any real government agency, Sam and Max battle evil villains everywhere from the moon to the past to their back yard. They are assisted by The Geek, a teenage genius who lives in Sam and Max's Sub-Basement of Solitude. Throughout all of their battles and quests, Sam and Max's own style of humor, although zany and weird, allows them to make it in what they do. But, why, oh, why, did FOX cancel this? I think TeleToon still has repeats. Also BBCKids, I think. I have purposely left the episode synopses vague due to the convoluted nature of this show and as to not give too many of the jokes. I could added more detailed summary in the recap area, if requested.moreless

    FOX (ended 2004)
    In My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé, the producing team of Jean-Michel Michenaud and Chris Cowan pulled off the ultimate practical joke. Randi Coy had to convince her family that she was going to marry "Steve," a big, fat slob who, unbeknownst to her, was a paid actor. She and her family were tested to the breaking point in a show that featured some of the most outrageous moments in television history. But if you think that was outrageous, wait until you meet My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss. My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss is a parody of such shows as NBC's The Apprentice and even FOX's very own The Rebel Billionaire: Branson's Quest for the Best. In the very first episode, twelve business professionals meet Mr. N. Paul Todd and learn about his multi-billionaire conglomeration, IOCOR, in a slick PowerPoint presentation. What they don't realize is that Mr. N. Paul Todd is nothing more than an anagram for Donald Trump and IOCOR comes from the Latin for "to jest." Mr. Todd is an actor named William August who's being paid to play an outrageous parody. Now they've been sucked into "his world" where he'll harass them, humiliate them, and basically make them look like complete fools. At the beginning of the show, the men and the women were divided into separate teams. In their first learning experience in corporate sabotage, they were told to give a name to the opposing team. The men chose to the name the women Femron, while the men were given the name of Concad. Before each elimination, the two teams take part in ridiculous tasks designed specifically to humiliate them. These could be anything from attempting to sell hot soup on a scorching day to attempting to "navigate" an office obstacle course. The losing team is given a punishment, while the winning team receives a reward that often ends up being worse than the punishment. However, these are not always aired. Also, in most episodes, some contestants are chosen to receive an Executive Privilege in which they get to spend some extra time with Mr. N. Paul Todd. These Privileges, in actuality, are designed to bring out Mr. Todd's shady character and further humiliate the victims of the scheme. In each episode, the losing team is sent to Mr. Todd's office. He and his actor flunkies then berate them, confuse them and annoy them before asking the team leader to choose two victims to face elimination. After a final chance to "plead their case" and a short waiting period, Mr. N. Paul Todd ejects the selected victim with a curt "Get the hell out of my office!" In the fourth episode, Mr. Todd got bored with this phrase and decided to start using a contestant's decision: "You're dismissed." By the next episode, though, he had apparently grown bored with that and switched back the original phrase. However, in the show's big twist, Todd isn't the one making the decisions. Instead, completely unknown to the contestants, the decision is made by a mystery boss whose identity is a complete secret. FOX promises, however, that when it is revealed, it will be a shocking, jaw-dropping twist. Given FOX's past record, it's probably rather lame and not at all jaw-dropping. At the end of the series, the remaining victim wins $250,000. The other victims win nothing.moreless
