    FOX (ended 2007)
    You can't judge a book by its cover, especially when it's only covered by a miniskirt and baby-tee! A workplace ensemble comedy, Stacked revolves around beautiful Skyler Dayton (Pamela Anderson, Baywatch, V.I.P) who is tired of her non-stop partying lifestyle and bad choices in boyfriends. Wanting a major life change, she wanders into "The Stacks," a small family-run bookstore owned by Gavin DeWitt (Elon Gold, In-Laws) and his brother, Stuart (Brian Scolaro,, Three Sisters). Divorced and unlucky in love himself, Gavin's inclined to regard Skyler as an embodiment of the vacuous, image-obsessed ure he has come to abhor. Stuart, however, is dazzled by Skyler's beauty and, much to Gavin's horror, offers her a job at their store, which she happily accepts as the first step in her quest for a steadier lifestyle. Unhappy that she's going to be minding the till next to such an intimidating hell is the store's sole other employee, Katrina (Marissa Jaret Winokur, "Hairspray"), who doles out doses of realism and cynicism. Rounding out the characters is the store's one steady customer, Harold March (Christopher Lloyd, Back to the Future, Taxi), a preeminent but retired rocket scientist. Fox Broadcast History April 2005 - April 2005: Wednesdays @ 8:30 April 2005 - Current: Wednesdays @ 8:30 Stacked is a 20th Century Fox Television production.

    Ned and Stacey

    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 1999)
    Action was one of the first politically incorrects to hit the air in the late 90's. It was rude, prejudiced, sexist, homophobic, and one of the funniest shows of all time. Peter Dragon is a movie-producer whose latest movie has just gone down the tubes. His next flick has to be the greatest action film he's made. So when his company buys the wrong script from a wanna-be screenwriter, he enrages himself to the limit. He meets up with his new friend Wendy Ward, a child-star turned adult-prostitute. Peter asks her to read the scripts and she picks Beverly Hills Gun Club, the script Dragonfire Films mistakenly bought. The show is based around Peter's insanity being hung on a rope "faster than O.J. at a clan rally" as Peter put it. The show was doomed from the start when it was on at 9:00 on Thursday nights, which NBC has ruled since Seinfeld. And when it didn't pick up right away, the show was put on hiatus for their new hit game-show GREED. After the cancellation in December, the people blitzed FOX's e-mail with over a thousand letters a day for one month straight. When hope let down, FX announced that they would re-run the show and play the five un-aired episodes. The final re-run of the show on FX was in January of 2001. The show later surfaced on Bravo's schedule in their "Brilliant But Cancelled" showcase, and was again resurrected by Comedy Central, where it currently airs.moreless

    FOX (ended 2004)
    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

    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.

    "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

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.
