    FOX (ended 2002)
    Can puppets and humans live side by side? In the world of Greg the Bunny, they can. Set in Hollywood, land of movie stars and struggling actors of all fabrics, Greg the Bunny (Dan Milano), a squeaky-voiced rabbit puppet, longs to live the high life -- one where he's got a job or something. Greg's best friend and roommate, Jimmy Bender (Seth Green), is a slacker -- not to mention a human. Jimmy's father, Gil (Eugene Levy), is the blunt and perpetually nervous executive producer/director of the low-budget (and low-rated) children's show, Sweetknuckle Junction. A cross between Sesame Street and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Sweetknuckle mixes the fun of trains with the joy of letters and numbers, and is brought to you by the human co-stars, Junction Jack (Bob Gunton), the conductor, and Dottie Sunshine (Dina Waters), the helper, with funding provided by the puppet co-stars, Professor Ape (Dan Milano), the scholarly monkey, and Count Blah (Drew Massey), the counting vampire. Off-camera, Jack is a gun-toting menace to society; Dottie, an insecure space cadet; Warren Demontague (as the professor is known in real life), a pretentious, sloppy drunk; and Count Blah, a Romanian widower who ends just about every sentence with "blah" and may or may not have stolen his act from The Count... but the kids watching at home didn't know any of that. Sometimes on hand are two more puppet actors, Susan the Monster (James Murray), a masculine, human-sized, shaggy, blue beast, who happens to be a woman, and Tardy Turtle (Victor Yerrid), who's slow in more ways than one. When fate steps in and hands Greg the starring role on the series, Greg's dreams of working outside of March come true. While not as glamorous, Jimmy finds a steady job himself, when his father makes him a production assistant. Overseeing all their actions on the set is the network's brand new executive, Alison Kaiser (Sarah Silverman), a penny-pinching PBS transplant, whose calculated goal of improving the sagging ratings puts her at odds with the cast and crew. Yet, underneath it all, the one thing she secretely wants is their approval. Thrust into this dysfunctional family, Greg gives it his all to save Sweetknuckle Junction from the constant threat of cancellation. Mixing live action and puppetry, Greg The Bunny is based on characters and concepts from the Independent Film Channel series of short films. They grew out of Junktape, the super-low-budget half-hour show produced by Spencer Chinoy and Dan Milano for New York City public access in 1997.

    A 43 year old narrator, who is incredibly rich and successful. Looks all the way back to 1994. When he lost his innocence and started to become a man - at the age of 32. In 1994 Glen Abbott (Rob Corddry), still living with his parents, finally steps out into the world and tries to make something of himself when the only girl he'd ever kissed, the radiant Alison McKellar (Erinn Hayes), returns to town. Driven by the desire to become a success and win Alison's heart, Glen goes through his "wonder years" a mere 20 years older than, well most everyone. However, it's not in vain, as this unlikely underdog will eventually transform from fear-riddled underachiever to the richest man in Buffalo in a mere five years. Luckily, Glen doesn't have to go though this awkward period alone. He becomes best friends with the only person he can truly relate to: Alison's 13-year-old son Josh (Keir Gilchrist). Josh is also fellow hypochondriac, and they help each other survive "puberty". Glen also receives parental guidance from his absurdly enabling mother Irene (Linda Hart) and his supportive but quasi rage-a-holic dad Ron (Lenny Clarke).moreless

    Just after being cancelled, The Ben Stiller Show won an Emmy for outstanding writing in a variety program in 1993.

    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

    Jess and Maggie were flight attendants for Regency Airlines who lived together in the South Beach section of Miami, Florida. Sexy ebony complected Jess often let her temper get the best of her, usually on the job. Maggie, her roommate and coworker was the sensible one. Also working on the crew as flight attendants were gay Paul and horny hick Randy. Lenora, a bitter former flight attendant who loved to spar with Paul, was their supervisor who lusted after Captain Rex Parker. For a while, clueless Captain Parker barely noticed she was alive. Mac, the bartender of Mambo Mambo, the restaurant the gang hung out at, was dating Jess. And Spats was Jess and Maggie's ill-tempered cat, who was never seen, but the world was often seen from his perspective. This series, from the people who made the critically-hailed-but-ratings-deprived "Five Mrs. Buchanans," was dismissed as "Friends on a plane" during the 1995 season, which was over-run with new TV shows (most of which were dubbed "Friends-clones" and didn't last too long). Although the low-rated series probably would have died a premature death anyway, nestled against NBC's "Must See TV" Thursday lineup, the final blow came soon after a tragic TWA disaster. Many people have expressed interest in getting episodes of the show on video or DVD. Since masses of series are now getting a DVD releases, go to TV Shows on DVD, register and vote on the show (and any other series you want to see on DVD).

    "Talented comic actor John Goodman returns to series television in this new half-hour comedy that puts a unique twist on family relations. "Goodman stars as William "Butch" Gamble, a beer-drinking, sports-loving Midwesterner who happens to be gay. Butch has decided to leave the liberal city of Los Angeles and return to his Ohio hometown--filled with less tolerant family members. His top priority is making amends with his son, Charlie. In the meantime, he's shacking up with his kid sister, Pamela. There are definitely no comforts of home -- unless you count the warmhearted bickering!" (FOX press release) Originally titled Don't Ask, this home-spun comedy lost just about everything from its original pilot -- except for stars Goodman and Greg Pitts. It even lost its originally announced time slot (Wednesday 8:00), as the people at FOX decided it wasn't good enough to lead off a night. When the reworked series premiered under the uninspiring title, Normal, Ohio, it still managed to perform well for the network, but was unceremoniously cancelled after just six airings -- after Goodman's People's Choice Award win for Favorite Male Performer in a New Television Show. This was because Normal's production company, Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, had another pilot in contention at FOX, Grounded for Life, and that show happened to be cheaper. Rubbing salt in the wound, the former FOX head who canned Normal, Ohio, Sandy Grushow, later "borrowed" its original title for his first pilot.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 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
