    NBC (ended 1971)
    The Bill Cosby Show aired for two seasons on NBC, 1969-70 and 1970-71. There were 52 episodes made in the series. In this lighthearted comedy, Bill Cosby played the role of Chet Kincaid, physical education teacher at a Los Angeles high school. The Chet Kincaid character was a bachelor, an average cool guy trying to earn a living, and help people out along the way. Many of the episodes involved Chet in various situations at the high school with his students and fellow teachers. In some episodes, Chet was asked to substitute, and fill in as algebra or english teacher. In one hilarious episode, Chet was the drivers ed instructor trying to teach a nervous student how to drive. Other episodes involved younger children, and some episodes involved family and adult characters. Different guest stars also appeared in various episodes thruout the series. The shows theme song- "Hikky Burr" was written by Bill Cosby and Quincy Jones with Cosby providing the vocals. The lyrics were hard to comprehend, but the song had a groovy tune and funky beat. For the second season, a more uptempo and jazzy version of the song was used. The show was entertaining, and did not use a laugh track, which is unique. The Bill Cosby Show was not your average, laugh-out-loud type of sitcom. The episodes were humorous, but the show emphasized warmth, intelligent character studies and plausible, real life situations. The plot of many episodes centered around a lesson in life learned, which was explained in the classic Cosby style.moreless

    NBC (ended 1973)
    Rocky and Bullwinkle began life in the 1950's television show, The Frostbite Falls Review. It was created by Jay Ward and Bill Scott. Their names in that show were Rocket J. Squirrel and Canadian Moose. The Frostbite Falls Review was not very successful so Rocky and Bullwinkle became the stars of their own show, Rocky and His Friends. The show was co-created by Alex Anderson and premiered on November 29th, 1959 on ABC. Added to the cast were Boris and Natasha, two Pottsylvanian spies. The show also featured various segments; Peabody's Improbable History, Fractured Fairy Tales, Mr. Know-It-All, and Aesop and Son. In 1961, the show moved to NBC and was renamed The Bullwinkle Show. In 1964 the creators moved the show back to ABC where it was cancelled at the end of that season. The next year the show did reappear back on ABC; Bullwinkle and Rocky were replaced by Hoppity Hooper, while the other segments remained. The show ran on ABC until 1974. It was then syndicated under the name of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. In 1996, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle was picked up by Turner Broadcasting's Cartoon Network. It has since moved to the classic cartoon network, Boomerang where it is still running today.moreless

    From DreamWorks animation comes the first primetime CGI-animated series with a feature film quality look to it. Each episode costs $1.6 million and 9 months to make. This CGI-animated series is about a family of white lions who work as performers in the Las Vegas act of illusionists Siegfried & Roy. The show stars Larry, a hard-working white lion in the revue with his wife Kate, a white lioness. Sarmoti, another white lion who is Kate's father - and Larry's father-in-law - clashes with Larry on every subject imaginable. Rounding out the group is Snack, a mischievous gopher and Larry's best friend. It should be noted that the name Sarmoti is actually the acronym S.A.R.M.O.T.I., which stands for Siegfried and Roy: Masters of the Impossible. The show was in jeopardy when in October 2003, Roy Horn was mauled by one of his tigers during a stage show that left Horn in critical condition. Executives at NBC and DreamWorks didn't know whether or not to go on with the show, but as Roy showed signs of improvement, both Siegfried and Roy urged the show to move forward in production. When the show debuted in late August 2004, it got off to a good start with strong ratings. The ratings continued to show good promise for the show through early September 2004, until the ratings started to rapidly decline. The show faced more trouble when it was pulled from November 2004 sweeps, undoubtedly signaling the end was near. In early December 2004, Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks Animation CEO and show creator, announced that the show was cancelled. A few of the remaining episodes were burned off in late December 2004. The whole series, which consists of one season of episodes and extra features, is now available on DVD for the public to buy.

    "Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth stars in this uptown comedy as Kristin Yancey, a small-town girl who leaves her sheltered life in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to pursue her dream of becoming a Broadway star. Until then, however, Kristin reluctantly accepts a job working for a handsome but morally bankrupt real estate tycoon, Tommy Ballantine (Jon Tenney) – and just maybe by being herself she'll be a good influence on him." "The misadventures of the virtuous actress surrounded by amoral New Yorkers begin when her unorthodox terms of employment are brokered by Reverend Thornhill (Christopher Durang), whose small Lower East Side chapel was saved from the wrecking ball by Tommy. While the bad-boy real-estate mogul remains skeptical that he can improve his image by hiring an assistant -- one who won't end up suing him for harassment -- the reverend has faith that pairing Kristin with Tommy will answer everyone's prayers." "Kristin's allies in the Ballantine Enterprises offices are Aldo Bonnadonna (Larry Romano), who is Ballantine's right-hand-man with an appreciation of how Kristin keeps the boss in line and on track, and Tyrique Kimbrough (Dale Godboldo), the fearless and hell-bent-for-leather messenger. However, jealous Santa Clemente (Ana Ortiz) -- a former conquest of smooth-operator Tommy who is now his director of sales and leasing -- wants to turn what she considers to be Kristin's down-home act into a limited run." (NBC press release) This much-delayed, heavily-panned, semi-autobiographical star vehicle was greenlit as a series in November, 1999 -- following Chenoweth's Tony win for Best Featured Actress in a Musical -- without so much as a completed pilot script. As is usually the case with sight-unseen pickups, NBC didn't like what they got, and the series -- which was initially considered a frontrunner for a Fall, 2000 bow -- was bumped to midseason. Kristin wrapped production by year's end, and NBC president of entertainment Garth Ancier told the cast and crew that it would premiere March 13, 2001. Ancier got the boot not long thereafter, and his successor, Jeff Zucker, did as all network executives do with inherited shows. He moved its premiere to June, and buried it. Ironically, its seven unaired episodes were replaced with seven reruns of Three Sisters, a show which Zucker couldn't bear to air four episodes of itself.
