    The WB (ended 2004)
    Since mom and dad have made a temporary move from the frigid winters of Grand Rapids to sunny Arizona to protect dad's health, you'd think it'd be pretty sweet at home for 15-year-old Brooke Franklin (Margo Harshman, Even Stevens). You'd be wrong. Brooke's brothers, Kurt (Joseph Lawrence, American Dreams) and Chris (Kyle Howard, Grosse Pointe, Orange County), and her sister Sally (Sasha Barrese, Just Shoot Me) are in charge. Though there is the usual bickering about household responsibilities and personal lifestyles, Brooke's siblings share more than a common gene pool; they also share a real concern about Brooke's well-being and the intention to raise their youngest sister correctly. The problem is that they usually have three different opinions on how to do it. All three of Brooke's older siblings have their own distinct approach to her upbringing. Kurt is the oldest and most responsible of the group, and although things are generally chaotic in the Franklin home, he prides himself on being the one in charge of the family. Second in line is Sally, who is beautiful and endearingly self-involved, although undeniably devoted to Brooke. The youngest brother, Chris, is slightly flaky but highly intelligent and uses his wit and charm to get away with just about anything. In many ways, Brooke is the most grown-up member of this unconventional family. She is unusually mature and trustworthy for a 15-year-old, but she knows her siblings are never going to acknowledge this. While the older kids argue over rules and responsibilities, Brooke is often the voice of reason. In a house full of young adults, there are bound to be plenty of crises that have nothing to do with Brooke. Each sibling is totally wrapped up in concerns about his or her own relationship, broken heart, sex life and career - or, in Chris' case, lack of a career. Mom and Dad call home to check in on a regular basis, but adult supervision is almost non-existent, unless you count the extremely nosey neighbor, Mrs. Norris (Mo Gaffney, That '70s Show) who loves dropping in unexpectedly to see if anything shocking is going on. She is rarely disappointed. A realistic, funny and youthful sibling comedy, Run of the House is from executive producer Betsy Thomas (Then Came You), along with executive producers Eric & Kim Tannenbaum and Robert Sternin & Prudence Fraser (The Nanny) for The Tannenbaum Company and Two Out Rally Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. (From TheWB.com Press Release) Note #1- The show was originally titled Coming Home during its development.moreless

    Welcome to the Like Family guide at TV.com.

    Tanya (Holly Robinson Peete), Ed (Kevin Michael Richardson) and their kids, 16-year-old Danika (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and 12-year-old Bobby (B.J. Mitchell), are a loud but loving middle-class African-American family in suburban New Jersey. They have generously opened their home to Tanya's closest friend Maddie (Diane Farr) - a hard-working single mom who has recently hit a speed bump in the road of life - and her charming and mischievous 16-year-old son Keith (J. Mack Slaughter).

    Tanya and Maddie grew up together and have always brought out the best in each other. These women have got each other's backs. To Maddie, Tanya is like a trusted big sister, always ready with advice and support, and always good for a laugh. Lately, Maddie's corporate job in New York City has been keeping her away from her son for long hours. She's worried that Keith has begun to hang out with the wrong crowd and is determined to keep him from getting into real trouble down the road. Maddie has decided that she and Keith both need the influence of a traditional family structure - and if traditional family structure is what you're looking for, Tanya and Ed's is the place to go.

    Tanya had a successful career as a lawyer, but is taking a few years off to stay home with her growing family. Maddie admires Tanya's accomplishments and her loving marriage to Ed, a self-made man who runs his own landscaping business. Ed may look and sound intimidating, but his family knows he's a teddy bear at heart. Their young son Bobby sees Keith as the older white brother he never had, and couldn't be happier to have him living in the same house.

    Bobby's older sister Danika, however, isn't so sure this new arrangement is a good idea. Keith and Danika have known each other since infancy, and their relationship is competitive, conflicted and, sometimes, a little flirtatious. Danika has blossomed into an all-American girl; pretty, smart, and self-confident. Now that they are living in the same house, these two teenagers are finding out a lot about each other - often, it's more than either one of them ever wanted to know.

    Adding to the family circus is Ed's father, Pop (J. Anthony Brown), a youthful senior citizen with a keen interest in the opposite sex and a strong opinion on everything that goes on in the house. Pop may be 74 years old, but he is still the wildest member of the family. Extra people in the house mean extra tension, extra laughs and the occasional blow-up as kids and grown-ups work together to combine their worlds and become one big, happy family.

    This family comedy was from co-executive producer Dan Fogelman with executive producers Rick Wiener & Kenny Schwartz (Mad About You, Two Guys And A Girl, Do Over) and Warren Littlefield (Keen Eddie, Do Over) for The Littlefield Co. in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc.moreless

    The WB (ended 2003)
    In this autobiographical family comedy, based on the life of series creator Peter Murrieta, life is seen through the eyes of 15-year-old David Tiant (Pablo Santos) as he faces the challenges of growing up in an ethnically mixed, upwardly mobile family. David's dad Joaquin (Julio Oscar Mechoso, "High Incident", "Damon") is a proud yet infuriatingly pragmatic Mexican-American. Joaquin's world is built on old-fashioned values of working hard to get ahead, taking care of your family and - the one that causes the most trouble - father knows best. His wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Creskoff, "Quintuplets") is an Irish-American who is fiercely proud of her husband and family. David's cheerleading diva of an older sister, Maria (Aimee Garcia, "All About the Andersons"), is having a little identity crisis of her own, rejecting her Mexican roots and telling people that the family is Spanish. Also living with the family is David's irreverent Uncle Ernesto (Jacob Vargas) who is gainfully employed as an animal control officer, yet tends to drift good-naturedly through life, having acquired three ex-wives and a young son named Daniel (Bobby Chavez) along the way. Little Daniel looks up to his cousin David and is in constant awe of his relatives' new status as members of the middle class. The matriarch of the family is David's free-spirited grandmother, Magdalena (Lupe Ontiveros), who is determined to escape the old folks' home, where her only entertainment is breaking every rule, and move in with her beloved grandchildren. Knowing that his mother will cause as much trouble as his teenage children do, Joaquin has been fighting this move every step of the way. Joaquin's recent promotion has enabled the family to move to a bigger house in a nice Tucson neighborhood, and David is pleasantly surprised when his new next-door-neighbor, Sarah (Sara Paxton), turns out to be not only a very pretty girl, but a potential best friend. At the center of this chaotic family circle is the relationship between Joaquin and David, whose mixed heritage only adds to the eternal adolescent dilemma of exactly how - and if - he fits in. Though he is secretly proud of his son, Joaquin rarely shows it, and his first impulse is always to criticize rather than praise. Not really appreciating how bright David is, Joaquin is convinced that without his constant advice, his son is headed for disaster. As with most father-son relationships, the truth is that they have a lot to learn from each other. An unconventional family comedy, Greetings From Tucson is from executive producers Rob LaZebnik (The Simpsons), Peter Murrieta (Second City), Howard Klein (King of the Hill) and David Miner for Turner Television. Before Greetings from Tucson, some of the show's titles were This Time and Just Like You.moreless

    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.

    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!

Despite a ban on all things pop culture, teenagers Danny (Joseph Cross) and Lauren (Tania Raymonde) and younger brother Mark (Matt Weinberg) are growing increasingly curious about what lies beyond the walls of their school/dining room.

    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.

    In this attempt to show what family life is like for big Hollywood stars, Harry Hamlin portrays Reece Hardin, an action movie star who's married to lovely dramatic actress Jacey Wyatt (shades of Bruce and Demi). Reece's teenage daughter from a previous marriage, Lori Lansford, recently left her mother's Ohio home to spend time with her father. Reece and Jacey's children are Apache, a typical Hollywood brat; and Moonglow, the cute baby of the family. Living in the guest house is Reece's brother, Todd Hardin, who feels his brother upstaged his career. Todd spends his days auditioning for parts in movies (that he never gets) and playing poker with his three best buddies -- Hollywood brothers Don Swayze, Joey Travolta, and Frank Stallone. Also seen during the first season was Reece and Todd's mother, Francine Hardin, who generally spent her time playing nanny and wisecracking. Swayze, Stallone, and Travolta each recieved guest-starring credits, but they appeared in every episode. When the show returned for a second season, Francine was noticably absent from the cast. Her character was still referenced once or twice, though her disappearance was never explained. Also worth noting, both Harry Hamlin (Reece) and Anne Haney (Reece's mother, Francine) were in the controversial 1982 film "Making Love," though they did not appear in any scenes together. The series premiered to good ratings for the fledgling WB, so much so that they extended the run to both Sunday and Monday nights, with one night being reruns. From a lack of episodes (and a lack of actual "movie stars"), ratings quickly started to slip. WB quickly ordered a second season of the series, but didn't bother to premiere it until the following summer (with less than thrilling promotion). Ratings never went back up and the show was quickly canceled. The final episode broadcast "Who's On First," was never scheduled to be aired -- it was supposed to be a rerun of a previous episode. WB knew the series wouldn't return so they threw on an unaired episode instead. "Sink-Chronicity" and one other episode remain unaired.

    Chicago's WGN aired WB programs during the first season that "Movie Stars" was on the air, but they had a bad habit of not playing the closing credits. Therefore, some of the guest cast is unavailable. Many people have expressed interest in getting episodes of the show on video or DVD. Since masses of series are now getting a DVD releases, go to TV Shows on DVD, register and vote on the show (and any other series you want to see on DVD). Support from TV fans does make a difference in getting the studios to release series on disc.moreless
