    The White Shadow

    CBS (ended 1981)
    A knee injury forced Chicago Bulls forward Ken Reeves into retirement and he was talked into a coaching career by his old friend and teammate Jim Willis. That was the premise behind TV's White Shadow. Jim was a principal at Los Angeles' Carver High School, nestled right inside an inner-city, working-class neighborhood…and though Reeves was new to the world of clipboards and de facto paternal responsibilities, coaching soon appeared to be his true calling. The White Shadow was created by TV producer (and big basketball fan) Bruce Paltrow. It was about the sport, of course, but it was also about a growing up in a tough neighborhood at a tough time. The kids on the team had to face drugs, gangs, race hostility, learning disabilities, financial hardship, and more-so it wasn't all towel rattail fights in the locker room. Whatever the dilemma, Coach Reeves figured into the solution, be it through good advice or hands-on intervention. His players trusted him, and given the general mistrust they had for people older than them, that was really saying something. In the 1979-80 season, b-baller Curtis Jackson was shot while standing in a liquor store that was being held up. That was also the year that a load of players "graduated" from high school and moved on…and a new batch of actors came in to take their place. In its third season, the show lightened up--there were less episodes that dealt with serious topics, but the season still had it's moments, such as teacher burnout ("Burnout") and unfair treatment by law enforcement ("Cops"). On the court or off, the young men on the Carver High basketball team were a funny and eclectic group, and their coach, their "white shadow," was always there to lend an assist.moreless

    TNT (ended 2001)
    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.

    Nickelodeon (ended 2004)
    Rocket Power premiered on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999, and can now be seen weekdays at 4:30 A.M EST onNicktoons Network, and on Sunday mornings at 6:00 A.M. EST on Nickelodeon. The show is about four friends who are addicted to action and extreme sports. Otto Rocket, his sister Reggie, and their pals Twister and Sam excel at just about every aggressive sport you can imagine. Their hometown of Ocean Shores, CA is the ultimate place for a game of hockey, skating the half-pipe or rollerblading on the boardwalk. There are extreme sports for all seasons, however, so don't be surprised if you catch the kids heading up to the mountains for snowboarding, ice hockey, and all manner of arctic action. All that competition can get, well, pretty competitive sometimes. So it's a good thing folks like Otto and Reggie's dad Ray and his business partner Tito Makani are around to remind everyone that way cool friendships are more important than winning events. Main Characters Otto Rocket: Otto is the leader of the group. As they say in the episode "All About Sam", he's a total action guy. He can be selfish and overly-competitive at times, and even more unreliable, but he tries to be a good friend, and more often than not, he does a pretty good job at it. He's also "rad" on wheels, waves and powder, and he plays a mean game of hockey! Reggie Rocket: Reggie is Otto's older sister, by two years. She's awesome at sports, and at times, she can be as competitive as her younger brother. She can be a little bossy sometimes, but she really doesn't mean to be. She is mostly the one who keeps Otto down to earth when he gets a bit too self-centered, and there are times when she acts as his conscience. So there's a lot more to this action-loving girl athlete that what she can do with a skateboard, a surfboard, a hockey stick, and a laptop. Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez: Twister is Otto's best bro. He's totally rad with his video camera, which he uses to tape all the extreme stunts he, Otto, and Reggie do. He's a little bit slow on the uptake, but in a totally sweet (well, the girls on this site think that) and comical way. Samuel L. "Squid" Dullard: Sam is probably the least extreme of the group, but that doesn't make him any less awesome. He's Reggie's best bro. He helps her publish her Zine on his laptop. Sam is pretty much the brains of The Rocket Gang, but it's his fear of risks that helps to keep the gang from going too far. Ray "Raymundo" Rocket: Ray has done a lot of things in his long life. But if the kids get into some trouble, they get a big punishment! Other then that he's a really nice guy. Tito Makani: Tito is a native of the beautiful state of Hawaii. He is really nice guy. He gives the "little cuzzes" Ancient Hawaiian advice and help with surfing. Sometimes he can go a little overboard with what he's doing, but it all comes out ok. From March 26 to April 8, 2002 a contest and show called Maximum Rocket Power Live: The Battle For Madtown Park where teams would compete in extreme sports like the Rocket Gang did. It got cancelled due to low ticket sales. It was supposed to tour cities all over the Midwest. The Show ended after the TV Movie episode "The Big Day" on July 30, 2004.moreless
