    The WB (ended 2000)
    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

    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.

    Martial arts star Russell Wong (Romeo Must Die) stars in this unique drama as an ex-cop who sacrificed everything and must now rebuild his own life as a teacher and mentor to a diverse group of teenagers. From the writer and executive producer of "The Karate Kid" and "Kiss of the Dragon", and the executive producers of Smallville, The WB's "Black Sash" features a multigenerational cast, dazzling martial arts and stories of hope and redemption. As an undercover narcotics cop, Tom Chang (Wong) paid a high price for staying true to his values. Framed and wrongly incarcerated in Hong Kong for allegedly smuggling heroin, he loses his career, his wife and the right to see his daughter. All he has left are the blazing skills of a master martial arts combatant. Now, after five years in a Hong Kong prison, Tom has come home to San Francisco, intent on restoring his life. Once back in San Francisco, Tom's mentor, Master Li (Mako, Pearl Harbor), gives Tom his martial arts school to run and a place to live in his building on the wharf. Tom finds a new family in the young men and women he trains in Chinese martial arts. His dedicated students include Tory Stratton (Missy Peregrym, Dark Angel, The Chris Isaak Show), a fiercely beautiful 17-year-old who has turned to martial arts as a way of dealing with the rage she feels over the death of her policeman father. A newcomer to the group, Trip Brady (Corey Sevier, Little Men ) is the victim of a violent father. For Trip, Tom's knowledge and kindness open the door to a new life. Bryan Lanier (Ray J, Moesha) is a tough-talking, streetwise teenager with a quick wit and a deep loyalty to his fellow students and to Tom. Another newcomer is the shy and warm-hearted Allie Bennett (Sarah Carter, Undeclared), who is searching for acceptance, friendship and for some of the skill and bravery she admires in Tory. Tom relies on the spiritual guidance of Master Li to help him deal with issues that arise in his life and the lives of his students. He also begins the long journey of trying to win back the right to see his daughter and the acceptance of his ex-wife, Beth (Ona Grauer). Tom spends his days teaching a new generation the skills and enlightenment he learned from Master Li. His message is timeless: patience and flexibility are the keys to overcoming any obstacle. Black Sash is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Carlton Cuse (Martial Law, Nash Bridges), Robert Kamen (The Karate Kid, Kiss of the Dragon), Dylan Sellers (The Replacements), Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola (Smallville) From TheWB.com.

    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

    If there's a rule book for raising kids in the '90s, Robert Peterson never read it. He decided to write his own upside-down book on parenting. A big kid at heart, Robert swims freestyle when it comes to bringing up his own four children. For today's baby boomer parents, raising a family can not only be tricky, but can be extremely hazardous, especially leading kids through the treacherous maze from childhood, into their teens and then finally adulthood. Life in the Peterson household is no exception. But thank to the unpredictable antics of family patriarch and all-around bon vivant Robert, the process is rarely dull. Robert's love for his kids - combined with his vivid imagination (prompting frequent fantasy sequences) and impulsive energy - propels him to do extraordinary things on their behalf as he continually dreams up untraditional solutions to traditional family problems. Robert's a communications professor at NYU; his wife Jerri is a law student. They're deeply in love, highly opinionated and equally adept in the fine art of persuasion. With their hectic schedules they do their best to share responsibilities - but have very different ideas about how to get things done. When he can't convince his son of the importance of getting a job, Robert takes a pizza-parlor job himself - with disastrous results - just to prove that even he's not beneath doing menial work. The Peterson's four kids span the ages from teens to toddlers. The oldest two, 16-year-old Michael and 15-year-old Zaria, are reaching that age where they're eager to spread their wings, take their hormones for a test drive and avoid being seen with their not-quite-cool parents. Nicholas is a bright-eyed eight-year-old who's quickly discovering the joys of mischief. Four-year-old Cece is the darling of the family. Offering his own offbeat point-of-view is Robert's childhood buddy, Wendell. Parenting has never been an easy task, and in the fast-paced, high-tech, user-friendly, information-overload world of the '90s, it seems more difficult than ever. But Robert and Jerri want the best for their kids - and they're going to use all the love, ingenuity and creativity at their disposal to give it to them.moreless

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!

    A handsome and wealthy businessman, Bill Davis (Gary Cole, The Brady Bunch movies, Office Space) has a high-powered career, a stunning penthouse on Central Park East, a succession of beautiful women and a dignified old-school British butler, Mr. French (Tim Curry, Charlie's Angel's), to make sure his life runs according to plan. Bill's life of blissful bachelorhood was years in the making, but it is destroyed in a single day with the arrival of two 6-year-old twins and their 14-year-old sister. From 1966 to 1971, Family Affair was a heartwarming family comedy that shaped television history. Blending the same comical dilemmas and heartfelt family values that made the original show a hit, "Family Affair" has been rejuvenated and fast-forwarded to the current day with The WB's unique flair. While Uncle Bill and Mr. French struggle to accept the fact that their dream lifestyle has taken this rather nightmarish turn, the children have their own adjustments to make. Six-year-olds Buffy (Sasha Pieterse) and Jody (Jimmy "Jax" Pinchak), along with their teenage sister Sissy (Caitlin Wachs, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood) find the move from small-town Indiana to New York City exhilarating and daunting at the same time. The Midwest neighborhood where the children used to play has been replaced by a terrace with sweeping views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. Instead of the more traditional nuclear family that used to include their aunt and uncle as surrogate parents, the orphaned siblings now must look to their well-meaning but totally unprepared bachelor uncle and his bewildered butler-turned-nanny to guide them through the changes in their young lives. Though he wants only the best for his nieces and nephew, Bill was extremely content with a life free from emotional entanglements. With the freedom to date one beautiful woman after another, money to travel whenever and wherever he pleased and Mr. French to take care of every meticulous detail of his home life, Bill has never needed a wife, let alone children. For the elegant Mr. French, the very thought of rambunctious youngsters manhandling anything in his meticulously ordered apartment is horrifying, to say the least. Buffy and Jody, along with Buffy's beloved doll, Mrs. Beasley, approach each new situation with wide-eyed curiosity and good humor, but for teenaged Sissy, life in New York seems almost too good to be true. She is so thrilled by Manhattan's round-the-clock energy that she never pauses to realize how inexperienced and vulnerable she really is. From executive producers Bob Young (Smart Guy, Dinosaurs, Boy Meets World), Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Panic Room), Sid & Marty Krofft (H.R. Pufnstuff, Land of the Lost) and Randy Pope, Family Affair is produced by Pariah in association with Turner Television. (Source: The WB Press Release) FAMILY AFFAIR (2002) moreless
