    The WB (ended 2002)
    From commitment phobics to blissful newlyweds to wedlock veterans, For Your Love depicts love in all of its romantic, challenging and chaotically hilarious stages.

    This sophisticated romantic comedy series was created and is executive produced by Yvette Lee Bowser. Set in the suburb of Oak Park, Ill, the series follows couples bound by friendship and family as they traverse the many phases of life and love in all their glorious complications.

    While adjusting to married life, Mel (James Lesure) and Malena Ellis (Holly Robinson Peete) exercise strong wills and a fiery passion for each other as they learn the hard lesson that the early years may just be the toughest. Following the arrival of their baby son Evan last season, the couple realizes that parenthood is a full-time job.

    As Malena attempts to balance her career with motherhood, Mel continues to build his new law firm and take on bigger clients. Their close friends and next-door neighbors, Sheri (Dedee Pfeiffer) and Dean Winston (D.W. Moffett), are former high school sweethearts and thought they were destined soul mates. The couple is going through a rocky patch and have decided to separate after seven years of marriage.

    Mel's younger and slightly immature brother Reggie (Edafe Blackmon) finally found the confidence to take his relationship with girlfriend Bobbi Seawright (Tamala Jones) to the next level. Unfortunately, after only a few months of supposed marital bliss, Reggie starts to question the state of his union and his professional aspirations.

    The show first aired on NBC and was dropped by that network, but then aired for four seasons on WB.

    The Bugs 'n' Daffy Show

    The Bugs 'n' Daffy Show

    Follow
    The WB (ended 1997)
    When the 'Kids' WB!' began broadcasting in 1995 it had a assortment of animated programs It seemed logical that the WB should feature the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons for which Warner Brothers' Animation division is famous. Thus, a new package of the classic cartoon shorts was assembled under the title of That's Warner Bros.!. 65 episodes were compiled and aired weekday mornings or afternoons, depending on the wish of individual affiliates. The majority of shorts on That's Warner Bros.! Each half-hour show consisted of three shorts and one "Hip Clip". "Hip Clips" were excerpts of varying length pulled from certain cartoons to fill time. But after one season, the show was updated. Its title was changed to The Bugs N' Daffy Show and given a new, catchy theme song, as Daffy and Bugs sing about the stars of the show. The new song went like this: "My name is Daffy Duck. And boy are you in luck. 'Cause I'm the greatest; I'm the best. You can't help but be impressed. Along with Bugs and all the rest... On the Bugs N' Daffy Show. Curtain up and lights aglow. Places, folks, 'cause here we go. It's the Bugs N' Daffy Show. Starring Daffy Duck! Marvin the Martian, Tweety, and Sylvester... Porky the Pig and Elmer Fudd here too... Foghorn Leghorn, Barnyard Dog... Yosemite Sam and Michigan Frog... Speedy Gonzales runs amok. I'm the star, I'm Daffy Duck! Someone hit the lights. We just love opening nights. Costumes, make-up, props, and sets... Song and dance, and hot duets. No Romeos or Juliets. It's comedy all the way. Time to laugh. So, let's begin. Notify your next of kin. Daffy Duck is starring in the Bugs and Daf... Make 'em laugh! The Bugs N' Daffy Show! Prepare to be blown away!" The format remained the same, except that the cartoons were no longer broadcast with their opening credits. They instead aired with a shot of each short's title card and an instrumental of the Bugs N' Daffy theme playing over it. The order of episodes and shorts remained the same, with one notable exception: the Three Bears cartoon, The Bee-Deviled Bruin, was pulled from shows 24 and 54, presumably for violent content, and replaced by Beanstalk Bunny in show 24 and by What's Up, Doc? in show 54. Like all of the other networks, the WB was no stranger to the practice of cartoon-editing-for-content. Gun gags were gone from cartoons like Rabbit's Feat, Barbary Coast Bunny, and Ballot Box Bunny. Scenes that were considered too violent in other ways were also chopped, like Sylvester being electrified in Lighthouse Mouse and Muzzle Tough. Single lines of dialogue were missing, such as Bugs' reference to Amos and Andy at the end of Lighter Than Hare and Daffy's line, "So round, so firm, so fully packed, so easy on the draw," in Book Review. The show was also known to redirect cartoon shorts by changing the order of scenes. Its version of A Star is Bored was horribly mangled. A second season of The Bugs N' Daffy Show began in September, 1997. The WB Network retained the rights to the same post-1948 titles that it had been telecasting for the previous two years, and added first-run pre-1948 cartoons to compose new episodes. At least one pre-1948 cartoon aired per show. Due to the slightly longer length of the pre-1948 cartoons, the "Hip Clips" no longer appeared in every show. Also, scenes in many of these pre-1948 cartoons were edited for content by the WB censors. The WB dropped The Bugs N' Daffy Show from its regular schedule for the 1998-1999 season. The show did remain on a few WB affilates as a replacement for Tiny Toon Adventures, although The Bugs N' Daffy Show was no longer a regular network series.moreless

    Multi-talented, award-winning comedian Steve Harvey (The Steve Harvey Show, The Original Kings of Comedy) and Emmy Award-winning executive producer Madeleine Smithberg (Late Night with David Letterman, The Daily Show) return to The WB for a second season with an expanded one-hour comedy/variety show designed once again to showcase Mr. Harvey's unique talents and uncanny ability to bring out the very best - and the very funny - in regular people, and not-so-regular people, too. Moving to the Sunday night timeslot held for many years by television's most famous variety show - The Ed Sullivan Show - Mr. Harvey will carry on the tradition of presenting a fast-paced hour packed with well-known stars and fresh new talent. As Mr. Harvey explains it, the guest list this season will include, "Some people who have already made it to the 'Big Time,' some people who are on their way to the 'Big Time,' and some people who have no business whatsoever being anywhere near the 'Big Time.'" In addition to the expanded one-hour format, a deejay will be on hand each week to play the audience in and out of commercial breaks, and a new segment called "Some Folks You Won't Be Seeing on 'Big Time'" will feature audition tapes that didn't make the cut - for obvious reasons. Season two will also feature weekly appearances by various standup comedians. Some will be established comedy stars, and some will be fresh faces getting their big break on Big Time. Many of Mr. Harvey's celebrity friends from the worlds of music and comedy will also stop by each week to join the fun and interact with the Big Time guests and audience members. {thewb.com) The show now features celebrity judges and a $10,000 prize each episode!

    Just Legal” is a fast-paced procedural drama with humor starring Jay Baruchel (‘Undeclared," ‘Million Dollar Baby”) and Don Johnson (“Miami Vice, ” “Nash Bridges”) as lawyers who save their clients, and in the process, save themselves. David “Skip” Ross (Baruchel), 19, a brilliant legal prodigy, dreams of becoming a great trial lawyer. When he can't land a job at a prestigious L.A. firm because he's too young, Skip ends up working for Grant Cooper (Johnson). Once a great lawyer, now burnt-out by the realities of life, Cooper is barely scraping by in his beachfront law office. Together, Skip and Cooper become defenders of the accused and crusaders for the unjustly wronged. Their cases vary from stories ripped from today's headlines to clever mysteries with procedural twists.

    Skip's middle-class parents, Deborah (Veanne Cox, “Erin Brockovich”) and Lenny Ross (Raphael Sbarge, “The Guardian”), and his under-achieving younger brother Tom (newcomer Michael Mitchell), are all extremely proud of Skip's accomplishments, but are also concerned for his well-being, especially when his first case involves proving the innocence of a young woman named Paradise (Peyton List, “The Greatest Game Ever Played”) who has been falsely accused of a gang-related murder. Always the underdogs, forced to do the gritty work of finding clues and tracking down witnesses in the beautiful, but often dangerous world of Southern California, Cooper teaches Skip to be a lawyer and a man, while Skip renews Cooper's faith in the law and himself.

    Comedy sensation Anthony Anderson (Barbershop, Me, Myself & Irene, Big Momma's House, Life) brings his unique brand of humor to The WB in a new multi-ethnic comedy. Anthony plays a struggling actor and single dad trying to provide a stable environment for his 8-year-old son, Tuga (newcomer Damani Roberts). Anthony soon learns that it's hard to come back home. Even though he has the love and support of his mother Flo (Roz Ryan, Amen), Anthony constantly clashes with his cantankerous father Joe (John Amos, Good Times, The West Wing). Joe has never understood his son's dream of becoming an actor. He wants Anthony to abandon his hopes and take a "real job" working in the family beauty salon/barber shop. Joe is not above using extreme measures to keep his son from "freeloading." Locking the refrigerator, rationing electricity, and charging Anthony rent to sleep in the garage are all part of Joe's eccentric plan to help Anthony grow up. To complicate things even further, Anthony's old room is being rented out to a medical student, whom Joe sees as the "successful white son he's never had." One bright spot in Anthony's new life at his parents' house is the family's 18-year-old Latina neighbor Lydia (Aimee Garcia, Greetings From Tucson). Lydia not only supports Anthony's plans to become an actor, she also loves to hang out with the family and to babysit Tuga. With his acting career going nowhere, Anthony is torn between providing for his son and teaching him about determination. He is almost convinced that he must put his acting ambitions on hold and give in to Joe's demands that he change the direction of his life. It takes Tuga to remind him that, aside from each other, their dreams are all they have. This semi-autobiographical comedy about fathers and sons is from actor/producer Anthony Anderson, writer/producer Adam Glass, executive producer Marco Pennette (Caroline in the City) and executive producer/director James Widdoes (Reba, My Wife and Kids) for Warner Bros.

    The Tom Show stars Tom Arnold as a father raising two daughters while having to start his career all over again in St. Paul, Minnesota. All this after his bitter and public divorce from Maggie, his ex-wife and the mother of two girls, and superstar daytime television talk show host. Tom returns to KOGD, the TV station where he got his start in television working for broadcaster Charlie Dickerson. Charlie has been the host of the local morning show "Breakfast with Charlie" for the last 43 years. In an effort to get higher ratings, Tom, as Charlie's new producer, brings in an eccentric, offbeat co-host for Charlie. Some at KOGD, including station manager Tanya Cole, are skeptical about the new "slick Hollywood producer," while others, like eager and high-spirited production assistant Jonathan Summers are honored to be working with "the man who helped re-invent daytime television." Either way, Tom has returned to his roots for a second chance at his career and the opportunity to stay close to his two young daughters as he faces the challenges of raising them on his own.
