It might have stood a chance if not for bad timing: The show went into production when a writers' strike was in effect, so the show literally was using scripts from the original show with Randall and Klugman.

I think it was also too soon after the original show. It had been off the air for only a few years and was still doing well in syndicated reruns.

"Cavemen" based on the commercial series by Geico insurance with the catch phrase "So easy that a caveman can do it." The first few commercials were funny but then they beat the joke into the ground. And then a TV series? It only lasted for six episodes I think but even that was too long, it should have ended with the pilot episode.

You base TV shows on movies, not commercials!

I remember liking Top Of The Heap and being disappointed when it was cancelled. I was in Middle School so that might be why I liked it.

It was a Married With Children spinoff with a pre-Friends Matt LeBlanc.

I think that is true for "Chico And The Man" and "Que Pasa USA"
