    NBC (ended 1986)
    "Every time I turn around, I see the girl who turns my world around..." Seven-year-old Punky Brewster certainly turned Henry Warnimont's world around. Henry was a grouchy old man who was set in his ways, until Punky came along and changed him in a way that was not thought possible...Henry became a happy man, determined to be the best parent he could be. According to reports from when this series was announced, there was a real Punky Brewster, but not quite like the one in the show. When NBC's programming head Brandon Tartikoff was a kid, he had a crush on a tomboyish older girl by that name. Years later, Tartikoff's first child was nicknamed Punky. He also thought it would be a great name for a series. NBC's attorneys tracked down the real Punky, who was married to an attorney in Connecticut, and got permission to use her name. The real "Punky", Peyton B. Rutledge, even appeared in the Season Two episode "The Search", as a teacher at Punky's school. The show's premise was as follows: After 7-year-old Penelope "Punky" Brewster and her beloved dog Brandon are abandoned at a shopping center by Punky's mother, Susan Brewster, Punky is taken in by Chicago photographer and apartment building manager Henry Warnimont, who lives on the apartment building's second floor. Henry's friend, Betty Johnson, lives upstairs from Henry. Betty is a registered nurse who has had custody of her granddaughter, Cherie, ever since Cherie's parents died in a car accident. When the show first started, it was aired on Sunday nights after the weekly televised NFL football game, which would sometimes run overtime into Punky Brewster's 7:30 PM time slot. Instead of cancelling the show because of this, they would make 15 minute episodes to air whenever the football game ran into the show's time slot. Six of these 15 minute episodes were made. Whenever the show is in syndicated reruns, these six 15 minute episodes are aired in three 30 minute packages of two 15 minute episodes each. After Punky Brewster's first two seasons, the show went into first-run syndication for its last two seasons.

    Theme Song: "Every Time I Turn Around"
    Written by: Judy Hart Angelo & Gary Portnoy
    Maybe the world is blind, Or just a little unkind. Don't know. Seems you can't be sure Of anything anymore. Although, You may be lonely and then, One day you're smiling again. Every time I turn around, I see the girl that turns my world around. Standing there ... Everytime I turn around, Her spirit's lifting me right off the ground. What's gonna be? Guess we'll just wait and see. Spinoff: It's Punky Brewstermoreless

    Hazel debuted in the fall of 1961 and was an instant hit, ending the 1st season ranking number 4 in the 1961-1962 Nielsen's ratings. Based on the Saturday Evening Post cartoons, the series centered around Hazel Burke, a maid, who for the first four seasons worked for the Baxter family. George Baxter was the head of the family which consisted of his wife, Dorothy and their son, Harold. Hazel ran the household and often preempted George's authority. The next door neighbors, Herbert and Harriet Johnson were occasionally seen. When the series moved to CBS in the fall of 1965, Hazel was given a new family to look after. George and Dorothy were transferred to the Middle East leaving Hazel and Harold behind. They moved in with George's brother, Steve and his family, which consisted of Steve's wife, Barbara and their daughter Susie.

    NBC (ended 1999)
    A situation comedy centered on Caroline Duffy, a young cartoonist living in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. Each episode begins with a brief animated sequence reflecting the autobiographical nature of her syndicated newspaper cartoon strip Caroline in the City, explicitly compared with the real comic strip Cathy in several episodes. The first season hinged on the complicated romantic relationship between Caroline and Del, a divorced hunk with commitment problems, and a slowly evolving, understated romantic attraction between Caroline and Richard, her cynical colorist who, as a aspiring painter, is embarrassed by his job and at first resists becoming entangled in Caroline's personal life but slowly realizes he is falling in love with her. Comic relief is provided by Caroline's neighbor and best friend Annie, a professional dancer trapped in the endless run of Cats and an endless succession of unsuccessful relationships with men, and Del's bizarre underling Charlie.

Principal Durst: "There is nothing wrong at Blake Holsey High" -Opening narration for the third season Black Hole High -Contributor: Gordo_Fan Characters: Josie P. Trent - "New kid at school -- Doesn't like rules": Blake Holsey High is Josie's latest stop on her long trail of boarding schools, followed by an ultra-sized permanent record. Estranged from her mother, Josie is outspoken and expressive. She is also described as smart, gutsy, and disliking everything phony. She isn't afraid of rule breaking (she is a notorious class skipper) and is most likely involved when there's trouble, especially because it is a habit of hers to investigate the odd occurrences of the school. Josie hates cats and public speaking, and is not good at singing. She lives with Corrine in room 21. She was kicked out of her last school for turning some of the students's skin green. Corrine Baxter - "Straight "A" student": An attendant of Blake Holsey High for two years now. Conforms to all rules and is highly organized, intelligent, and careful. She has an IQ of 172 and has sang in a choir. Her mom is a psychiatrist and her dad is a brain surgeon. Roommate is Josie in room 21. Vaughn Jody Pearson - "Most popular boy in school -- Has dark secret": One of the most unlikely students to join the Science Club or even be associated with science. His father is Victor Pearson. Vaughn is often placed in uncomfortable positions to find out information discussed by the science club and comes into conflict with morals. He is left handed, has dyslexia, and is on the football and wrestling teams. In room 36, he is not assigned a roommate. His birthday is June 17. Marshall Wheeler - "Young, gifted, geek": Very intelligent. Dedicated to getting things, aims towards amusement, and tends to think about ways of making money. He apparently dressed up as Principal Durst for Halloween and made a genetically engineered soap that turned his skin green. Has an older brother named Grant who also attended Blake Holsey. He is the lead singer and keyboard player for "Magnet 360", a band of Blake Holsey. Roommate is Lucas in room 32. Lucas Randall - "Suspicious of everybody": He is not good at sports and isn't the preferred choice to be on a team with. Often picked on by bullies and isn't good at insults. He is known for looking into conspiracies and his stories are often not believed. Lucas likes fishing with his father and playing chess. Lucas also has asthma. Roommate is Marshall in room 32. Principal Amanda Durst - Once a new teacher at Blake Holsey High, she has now been principal of the school for the last 10 years. She attempts to keep the hopes of the students high but has a watchful eye on the science club. She loves Romeo and Juliet. Professor Noel Zachary - Science teacher and head of the Science Club, we find out though that this was not always his passion. It was luck that he received a scholarship from Pearadyne Labs to continue to college. He also was employed by Pearadyne Labs for a short time. Like Josie, he is interested (and often fascinated) in the odd occurrences and seeks to find the cause of them. He does not like giving pop quizzes. His favorite kinds of foods are hotdogs and spaghetti bolonges. He has a dog. Professor Zachary's birthday is on the 25th but the month is unknown. His last job was at an all girl school. The Janitor - When even Professor Zachary doesn't have the answers needed to solve their problems, the janitor turns up to individually give the students perplexing advice. He claims to like reading and his living area is usually not lit. Appears unsurprised at the mysterious events and seems to be watchful of Pearadyne Labs. He is usually seen attending to anything leftover by the suspicious occurrences. Victor Pearson - "Vaughn's father -- Major league bad guy": Having a fascination with science from a young age, Victor Pearson is the wealthy owner of Pearadyne Labs, an institution dedicated to science. An accident occurred 15 years ago causing mysterious happenings around the affected lands and the loss of his wife. He is head of the board of directors/governors for Blake Holsey High. He is suspicious of the Science Club and especially Josie. Victor's mission has been the reopening of Pearadyne Labs. Kelly Trent - Josie's mother. She worries that Josie may not like her and is trying to be more close to Josie. According to her, the work she does involves research for private companies and is an occupation involving confidentiality. She also worked at Pearadyne, apparently one of the people who began it.

    NBC (ended 2003)
    GOOD MORNING, MIAMI was a sitcom from the creators of NBC's hit series WILL AND GRACE. The show focused on the executive producer of the lowest-rated morning show in the country and how it affected his personal and professional life.
    The premise was as follows:
    Jake decides to accept the risky job when he first sets eyes on the show's beautiful, down-to-earth hairdresser, Dylan, who wows him like nobody before ... and presents a romantic challenge like nobody before. Meanwhile, the carnival of clowns at the station includes pompous host Gavin, Jake's wise-cracking assistant, Penny, and highly insecure station manager Frank. After a while, Jake's ambition changed as he and Penny had a brief relationship.
    Early in the first season the cast was delightfully rounded out with the talents of Tessie Santiago as Lucia (Gavin's co-host) and Brooke Dillman who played the station's weather-nun, Sister Brenda. Sadly, they were written out of the script by the producers who were still searching for the "center" of their program.
    During the second season, Jake and Dylan began their relationship, almost even deciding on a relocation to New York together. Victoria Hill, new station boss, took over the show to get higher ratings and Gavin struggled to warm up to her. A new weather girl, Joni, was introduced. NBC put the show on hiatus after the December 18th, 2003 episode and announced that it would return during the summer to burn off the nine unaired episodes. That never happened.

    "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.

    "This sporting comedy provides a novel take on the life and times of young Adam Schwartz (Breckin Meyer, Rat Race,Clueless), an athletics-obsessed sportscaster whose inner thoughts and fantasies are revealed through personal conversations with sports figures. The series focuses on Schwartz as he struggles to come to terms with both his love of sports – where there are definite rules and official referees – and his personal life, where there are no designated foul lines." "As the occasional voice of a minor-league baseball team, Schwartz takes a brushback pitch when his longtime girlfriend Eve (Maggie Lawson, Cheaters) dumps him, but he dusts himself off and gets back into the dating game with the help of his friends, including the attractive and adoring Julie (Miriam Shor, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), the uncensored David (Bryan Callen, MAD TV), David's driven wife, Emily (Jennifer Irwin, Exit Wounds) and Schwartz' gregarious father, Gene (Richard Kline, Three's Company), the owner of a pita sandwich-shop chain [St. Pita's, for which Schwartz serves as vice president of operations]. Three-time Emmy nominee Dondré T. Whitfield (All My Children) stars as Schwartz's cocky and ambitious agent William Morris." "This ambitious comedy is more than a sports series, maintains creator and executive producer Stephen Engel (NBC's Just Shoot Me, Mad About You). You don't need to know a thing about sports to enjoy this show," says Engel. "If it's going to work, it has to be a romantic comedy first and foremost." (NBC press release) Originally an absurdist sitcom in the vein of My World and Welcome to It, Herman's Head, Dream On and The People Next Door, the first few episodes of Inside Schwartz had satirical segments that looked like a real sports news show. Sports legends like Dick Butkus, Terry Bradshaw and Magic Johnson (playing themselves) would show up in Schwartz's imagination to offer commentary on his pathetic romantic life, and sportscasters Kevin Frazier and Van Earl Wright (also playing themselves) would cut in every now and again to give the score. After a month on the air, NBC did as they had done a season earlier with Cursed, and carefully sucked each and every element out of Inside Schwartz that made it unique, until they were left with another Friends clone. The series was pulled, scripts were revised, and Frazier and Wright and virtually the entire sports angle were dropped. When it returned to the air following a four-week leave of absence, Inside Schwartz quickly became unrecognizable from every other single twentysomethings-in-the-city sitcom that NBC had ever put on Thursday. After three episodes in the new format, Schwartz was cancelled, the victim of a critical drubbing and alarming tune-out from the show the network tried to turn it into. Although he received the "And" credit for all episodes, Richard Kline was an afterthought, rarely appearing in some and not appearing at all in others, and seemed to be on the verge of being dropped himself.
