Biggest New Hit: Love & War was #14 on CBS Mondays. It was a “love & war” between the audience and the show; there was basically no chemistry between Jay Thomas and Susan Dey. In all, it wasn’t a funny show. Annie Potts replace Susan Dey and things were starting to look up for Love & War.

Death: John Hancock died from a heart attack, just like his character, Ike Johnson, did on Love & War. Charlie Robinson replaced him on the show as his brother, Abe Johnson.

His real life wife, Kathleen Kinmont, was his Renegade costar. She filed for divorce in 1994 and remained on the show for two more years till she badmouth about Lorenzo’s new love in the press. Kathleen’s mother was Lorenzo’s mother on Falcon Crest! How creepy was that!

Spin Offs:

Final Appeal from Unsolved Mysteries.

The Golden Palace from The Golden Girls, Blanche sold her house and brought a struggling hotel. There was hardly any staff; The Golden Girls became full time help. The show wasn’t successful on CBS.

TV History: The Real World is the longest running MTV show since 1992.

Tidbits:

Melrose Place wasn’t successful at first till Heather Locklear came aboard late in the season.

MTV’s The Real World premiered on May 21, 1992. It is the second longest reality show after Cops.

CBS aired Johnny Bago late at night on Wednesday too; the Friday episodes was the originals.

Roc’s second season on FOX was done LIVE, due to a recent LIVE episode in spring of 1992. All the regular actors were primarily stage actors.

Hee Haw Silver was selected earlier shows with new introductions by Roy Clark.

Danger Theatre contained fifteen minutes series of The Searcher and Tropical Punch. 357 Marina del Rey replaced Tropical Punch on the last airing of Danger Theatre.

The Kids In The Hall originally started on CBC in Canada and HBO in America in 1989.

Nick Knight was a failed 1989 pilot, starring Rick Springfield and John Kapelos. The pilot was remade in the Forever Knight series with John Kapelos reprising his role. Geraint Wyn Davies replaced Rick Springfield in the title role. This wasn't the first time that Geraint play a vampire on TV. He was a vampire in the failed 1990 series, Dracula: The Series.

Big Wave Dave's was a totally wipe out for Jane Kaczmarek and Kurtwood Smith. They had lots of things in common; both went on to star in huge hits for FOX! Jane was the tempestuous mother on Malcolm In The Middle from 2000–2006. Kurt was the overbearing father on That 70's Show from 1998–2006. Their TV sons, Danny Masterson and Christopher Masterson, are real life brothers.

Bonnie Hunt and her good friend, David Letterman, was the executive producers of The Building. She was the first woman to create, star, produce and write for a series. She even wrote the 22 episodes before she sold it. The Building came crashing down on her after 5 episodes. Dear Lord! Did she make it out of alive?

At the height of popularity, Studs was cancelled after 580 episodes. The then–spouse of Rupert Murdock, Anna Murdock hated the show with a passion.

The biggest late night shook up...Johnny Carson finally retired from The Tonight Show after more than twenty–nine years. NBC gave The Tonight Show to Jay Leno, instead of David Letterman. Jay Leno was the exclusive guest host since 1987. David was pretty upset that he was passed over. CBS offered David $42 million to compete with The Tonight Show the following season. Conan O'Brien took David's spot on Late Night the next season.
