    Showtime (ended 1986)
    Bizarre is a variety series hosted by John Byner, who performed along with an ensemble cast in a wide range of sketches that ranged from satirical looks at the topics of the day to politically incorrect sketches. This series also introduced the character Super Dave Osborne, a stuntman who performed a wide range of stunts for the audience that ended up going horribly wrong. There were two versions of the series filmed: an "uncensored" version that aired on Showtime with female frontal nudity and foul language and a censored version for CTV in Canada, which had the foul language bleeped out and the nude scenes reshot from a different angle or more clothing.moreless

    Hard Knocks (1987) is an action drama series from the Showtime Network that brings together two private detectives with completely different styles, searching for bad guys in Los Angeles. The level-headed Gower (Bill Maher) and his tough-guy best friend Nick (Tommy Hinkley) open a private detective agency in Beverley Hills, trying to tap into the city's rich clientele. What they find each week is a town full of wackos with many problems that need solving. Early in the season, the two private eyes set up camp in the back of Maggie's Restaurant, where Nick's niece Terry (Babette Props) and husband Silky (James Vallely) work. The sleuths meet the owner, an ex-con named Maggie (Judith-Marie Bergan), who serves as a good informant throughout the season for the detectives. While solving a case, Gower hooks up with Sheila Jesswalters (Gracie Harrison), who is always up to no good. As Gower and Nick solve their crimes each week, they soon discover that they are actually part of a big set up constructed by a L.A. mob boss named Tony (Tom Spiroff). moreless

    Showtime
    Inside the NFL is one of the longest running, Emmy award winning sports shows on cable television today. Each episode has some of the most exciting player profiles, interviews and footage as well as expert comentary from past players from around the NFL. Current hosts include James Brown, Cris Collinsworth, Phil Simms and Warren Sapp who provide the in depth coverage that fans have come to expect since the shows long history. Inside the NFL began in 1977 with its original hosts, Al Meltzer and Chuck Bednarik, but is wasn't until 1979 that the show started to take form, with the hosts that would be on the show for the next 22 seasons, being Len Dawson and Nick Bounichonti. In 1990, Cris Collinsworth joined the cast of the show, and the three-man setup was there for 5 more seasons until they added some others to fill that 4th spot, whether it was Jimmy Johnson for his lone season in 1996, or Jerry Glanville, who was there from 1997 to 2001. In 2000, Dan Marino joined the cast after retiring from 17 years in the NFL, and was immediately a fan favorite. After the 2001 season and the shows 25th season, Len Dawson, Nick Bounichonti, and Jerry Glanville left the show because in Len and Nick's case, they were getting too old and Cris Collinsworth took the lead host role. In 2002, Bob Costas and Cris Carter came on the show, and joined Cris Collinsworth and Dan Marino. That foursome went from 2002-2007, ending with what was supposed to be the last ever episode of Inside the NFL, on February 6th 2008. Then for the 2008 NFL Season, Inside the NFL was picked up by Showtime, and the current cast for that show is James Brown, Phil Simms, Cris Collinsworth, and Warren Sapp. Historical segments from the show included the Cover Story, Where are They Now, NFL Crosstalk, Teeing Off, and now there are segments called Grab Bag, King for a Day, Phil's Pet Peeves, and Ask Warren Anything. Inside the NFL is now going into it's 33rd season and it now the longest running sports show on TV, and the second longest non-soap oprea show TV only behind The Price is Right.moreless
