TV Seasons

1994

1994/95 – Seinfeld was #1 on NBC Thursday.

Note: Any BOLD shows were cancelled in 1994 season; Empty Nest was cancelled in the seventh season.

Anniversary:

An Evening At The Improv celebrated ten years on A&E.

Monday Night Football celebrated twenty–five years on ABC.

Saturday Night Live celebrated twenty years on NBC.

Biggest New Hit: ER was #2 on NBC Thursday. The hits kept on coming from The Cosby Show to Cheers to Seinfeld to LA Law to Friends and ER. Thursdays truly belonged to NBC. No network could compete with NBC on that night.

First Run:

Forever Knight returned to syndication. It was previously on CBS Crimetime After Primetime from 1992–1994.

Sirens returned to syndication with two original cast members, Adrienne–Joi Johnson and Liza Synder, after it failed on ABC in 1993.

Name Change: These Friends Of Mine to Ellen.

Networks Debut:

WB premiered with their first show, The Wayans Bros., on January 11, 1995, Wednesday at 8 PM. Unhappily Ever After followed at 8:30 PM.

UPN premiered with their first show, Star Trek: Voyager, on January 16, 1995, Monday at 8 PM.

Reruns: FOX aired reruns of the HBO hit comedy, Dream On, for a short period in 1995.

The Return: The original Family Feud host, Richard Dawson, replaced Ray Combs.

Spin Off: Women Of The House from Designing Women. Four years later, Delta Burke returned to her most famous role, Suzanne Sugarbaker. Delta was fired from Designing Women for gaining too much weight in 1991. Time healed all wounds for Delta Burke, Linda Bloodworth–Thomason and Harry Thomason.

TV History:

The Simpsons tied with the Flintstones as the longest running cartoon in prime time, six seasons each.

Tidbits:

Carl Lumbly is the only cast member to return from the M.A.N.T.I.S. pilot.

Star Trek: Voyager is the first Star Trek series to be on network TV since the original Star Trek series on NBC in the late 1960’s. Kathryn Janeway is the first female captain on Star Trek. Linda Hamilton auditioned for the role of Capt. Kathryn Janeway; the part went to Kate Mulgrew.

The Jon Stewart Show replaced the cancelled Arsenio Hall Show late at night; it was produced by MTV and syndicated by Paramount Studios.

George Clooney previous starred in E/R, a 1984/85 CBS comedy; he went on to greatest fame of playing a doctor in the NBC drama, ER.

Carl Winslow is a very bad father on Family Matters. His daughter, Judy, disappeared without a trace. Yet, no one search for her. Even, Carl didn’t fill a missing person report! Dear Lord! That’s shocking! He should have known better. For crying out loud, he is a police officer!

Pig Sty and Platypus Man premiered on the same night and were cancelled on the same night 13 weeks later. Even switching time slots with each other couldn't save both series.
