Arrow Shows I think should've lasted longer

1. Cafe Americain-1993-1994 NBC
2. Living Dolls-1989-1990 ABC
3. Home Fires-1992 NBC
4. The Family Man-1990-1991 CBS
5. Rags To Riches-1987-1988 NBC
6. Frank's Place-1987-1988 CBS
7. I'll Fly Away-1991-1993 NBC
8. Star Of The Family-1982 ABC
9. I'm A Big Girl Now-1980-1981 ABC
10. I Married Dora-1987-1988 ABC
Except for I'll Fly Away, which my mom watched with me (she and my dad also watched Frank's Place, but I wasn't born yet)I have never watched any of these shows. I read about them in The Complete Directory To Primetime Network and cable TV Shows, 1946-Present. Check it out, and you might see why I thought they should last longer and/or why they were cancelled!

Talking

"Ladies Man"???? It was unfunny and boring. I think, its replacement, "Yes, Dear" is MUCH better!

"Freaks and Geeks" was the best new show of last year. It should have been in its second season, just starting a long run on television!

Just the ten of us- ABC- 1987-1989, great show, much bettr than the show it spun-off from, GROWING PAINS.

Living Dolls- CBS or ABC- 198?- Halle Berry, Leah Remini as MODELS!

Fired Up- NBC- Sharon Lawrence and Leah Remini, Sharon Lawrence as a high profile exceutiv that losses her job and with the help of her long suffering assistant starts up a new business. it aired in like 1996 or 1997.

Oh, Baby- LIFETIME show from 1999 about a single women that uses artifical incemanation to have a baby! the best friends was played by a brillant actress, i just can't remember her name? the red head?

Jo- Sexy Lingere?
Andy- Yep, Sexy lingerie that's you, that's what i named you.
Tootie- Oh, say you didn't
Jo- I Will not be known as sexy lingerie.

Nurses (1991-1994)- I thought it was far funnier than Empty Nest and The Golden Girls, which it spun off from.

Taxi (1978-1983)- I think it could have lasted another season.

Did you know that the usa network shows Fired Up on weekends. check the tv guide. I believe it's on Sat or Sunday at 6 am . I remember watching this show a long time ago. I'm probably going to check it out again.
