    WCW Monday Nitro was the weekly show designed by Eric Bischoff to compete against Vince McMahon's WWF Monday Night Raw. The show began broadcasting on TNT in September, 1995. WCW Monday Nitro's ratings really exploded in 1997 when Goldberg, The Flock, and nWo were introduced. After a huge fall in the ratings, WCW Monday Nitro was cancelled by AOL/Time Warner in March of 2001 by Head of Programming Jamie Kellner, and parts of WCW were subsequently bought by Vincent K. McMahon's World Wrestling Federation Entertainment (World Wrestling Entertainment). Despite plans of a WWE Entertainment version of "WCW Monday Nitro" returning on a different channel, and possibly, on a different day, it never did. Did you Know ... That Nitro went on to lead in the ratings for an amazing 80+ weeks. That Lex Luger debuted on the first episode on WCW Monday Nitro. That the nWo storylines are argued by many as one of the best ever in professional wrestling history.Related Programs - WCW Pay-Per View - WCW Thunder - WCW Saturday Night - WCW WorldWide - WCW Main Event - WCW Clash Of The ChampionsBuy The DVD/VHS of the "WWF/WCW Monday Night Wars" courtesy of Amazon.com When the WWE bought out WCW, many of the WCW's wrestlers made a name for themselves on WWE programming.

    Crusade, a spin-off from the Emmy-winning Babylon 5, describes the efforts of the Interstellar Alliance vessel Excalibur to find the cure to a plague released on Earth. This plague of nano-viruses, released by the Shadow's servants, the Drakh, in retaliation for the Shadow War (see Babylon 5 season 4 for details), will kill all mammalian life on Earth within five years if the cure is not found. Unfortunately, the plug was pulled on this series after just 13 episodes, so no resolution was ever achieved.moreless

    TNT
    The Screen Actors Guild Awards is the only awards show created by and for actors. A randomly selected group of SAG members votes on each year's standout individual and ensemble performances with the final ballot being voted on by all 100,000 guild members, then convenes for one of TV's most genuine ceremonies. Actors from both television and film are honored, but no awards are handed out to the actual movies or shows. The Screen Actor's Guild award is considered to be an indicator of success at the Academy Awards. The bronze statuette which is known as the "Actor" depicts a naked man holding the masks of comedy and tragedy, it was originally sculpted by Edward Saenz and was designed by Jim Heimann and Jim Barrett.moreless

    In this updated version of the Robin Hood legend, Robin virtually abandons the longbow in order to engage in swordplay and verbal banter with the villains, while Marion fights beside him with sword and whip. There is also more sorcery and fantasy than in most previous versions. Little John and Friar Tuck round out the quartet of principals.

    The role of both Robin and Marion was played by two different actors.moreless

    Welcome to the L.A. HEAT guide at TV.com.

    SHOW PREMISE Meet Chase McDonald and August Brooks. Two guys who will do anything to keep L.A. safe . . . even if it means blowing half of it up.

    L.A. Heat is an explosive crime drama that follows the action-packed cases of robbery/homicide detectives McDonald and Brooks, who are as different as night and day. Chase, with seven years on the force, likes the thrill of adrenaline and is always looking for action. August, a seasoned veteran with sixteen years on the force, often acts as the voice of reason for his young partner. Together they clean up the streets of Los Angeles to try to make the city a little bit safer.

    Utilizing the natural backdrops of the city (from the beautiful beaches to the rougher areas), the series contains more action in one episode than most series do in an entire season, making it possibly the most action-packed series ever created for television.

    THE CHARACTERS Chase McDonald: A risk-taker, Chase likes living on the edge and is passionate about his work. Though a born leader, he often needs the guidance of someone with his partner's experience to keep him out of trouble. His enjoys metal sculpting in his spare time and resides in a beachfront home in Malibu, where he lives with his girlfriend, Jodi Miller.

    August Brooks: In his youth, August was a promising boxer, but after he was forced to throw his first pro fight, he became disillusioned with the sport and left to join the police academy. He found he was a natural at police work and quickly rose through the ranks to become a detective. A Vietnam veteran, he also runs the Hoover Street Youth Boxing Center in his spare time, a recreation area for underprivileged children, providing an alternative to gang life.

    Jodi Miller: Chase's girlfriend, she was never happy with his job and tried repeatedly to talk him into quitting the force, to throw himself completely into his art. When she got a job offer to manage an art gallery in Texas, she began pressuring him even more to quit and come with her. Chase refused, insisting they could work things out, but ultimately, Jodi had to leave.

    Kendra Brooks: August's loving wife, she works at the Hoover Street Youth Boxing Center, where she helps the kids with their problems.

    Captain Jensen: The high-tempered superior of Chase and August. Despite the aggravation they often cause him, he still considers them his best detectives.

    SHOW HISTORY Produced by PM Entertainment Group, Inc., L.A. Heat began shooting in 1996 in Southern California, in areas that included Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Monica, Malibu, and Long Beach. But due to the fact the show didn't have the backing of a major network, it was not picked up for domestic distribution in the U.S. But it was sold overseas, where it became rather popular and, in its second season, accomplished the impossible: it took the #1 spot away from Baywatch in Germany. Production ended in 1998 after just two seasons due to financial troubles within PM Entertainment, which could not recover and ultimately went out of business. A year later, L.A. Heat finally premiered in the U.S. when it began airing on the cable network TNT on March 15, 1999. All 48 episodes were shown Monday through Friday at 4PM for almost two years before leaving the network, and it has not been aired on American television since. (There were plans to bring the show back for a third season in 2000, but an agreement could not be reached.)

    CAST BIRTHDAYS: Wolf Larson - December 22, 1959 Steven Williams - January 7, 1949 Renee Tenison - December 2, 1968

    WORLDWIDE PREMIERE DATES: Germany - January 20, 1997 France - March 16, 1997 Portugal - May 18, 1997 USA - March 15, 1999 Italy - June 21, 1999moreless
