Default Top Of The Heap

In 1991 FOX launched a sitcom named Top Of The Heap that was created by the same creators of Married With Children and it used to air directly after Married With Children as part of FOX's sitcom lineup but Top Of The Heap was soon cancelled and is considered to be one of the most underrated FOX sitcoms in FOX's history
Do you remember Top Of The Heap?

I do remember it, it had Matt LeBlanc, his character was on a couple of Married With Children episodes. I think Top Of The Heap had a name change and was called Vinnie And Bobby the second year.

Matt LeBlanc was on Top Of The Heap? I didn't know that fact and that's a surprise to me. I guess Top Of The Heap was Matt LeBlanc's big sitcom debut because it's hard to believe that Matt LeBlanc would become a bigger success later in Friends and his Top Of The Heap character was named Vinnie. What a surprise because Vinnie is my favorite boy's name. Thank you for sharing this fact about Top Of The Heap with me Torgo you really have a lot of knowedge to share with all of us here

I was in middle school and remember liking Top Of The Heap. The country club that was part of the show's setting had a geriatric security guard who delivered funny one liners.

Top Of The Heap also used the classic song Putting On The Ritz as it's theme song and that I thought was really cool. Top Of The Heap sounded like a lot of fun to watch and FOX should've given it more episodes instead of cancelling it

I remember Top of The Heap just because it was a backdoor pilot from Married With Children.

I also remember it, and also thought it wasn't very good.
