I totally agree with both ideas

Totally agree. Although my one exception would be.....

Farrah Fawcett
Loni Anderson
Barbara Eden
Donna Douglas
Adrienne Barbeau
Christina Applegate
Catherine Bell
Crystal Bernard
Teri Copley
Sally Field
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Lori Loughlin
Catherine Oxenberg
Markie Post
Victoria Principal
Susanne Somers
Tiffini Amber Thiessen

all as Playboy Bunnies aspiring to be centerfolds.

OK, you can throw in Bea Arthur as house mother for comic relief.

And it has to be on cable.

And I'm the scriptwriter.

I just nailed Mrs. Trumbull

They had their own show and it was horrendous. Fraiser was much better.

I would have loved to have seen an Eastland spin-off with the four Lost Girls from The Facts of Life: Molly Ringwald, Julie Anne Haddock, Julie Piekarski, and Felice Schachter. Shows could have focused on the classroom, since The Facts of Life rarely even showed a classroom. It could have been a bit more like Head of the Class or Welcome Back Kotter in that sense, actually taking place at a school, rather than a school cafeteria and kitchen.

Gary Seven, from the Star Trek episode, "Assignment: Earth".

I think that episode was kind of a stealth pilot that never got off the ground.
