Question Did Anyone Ever Get To See "The Love Boat: The Next Wave"?

This was the short lived spin-off of The Love Boat that came on in the late 90s. Robert Ulrich was the lead in this one.

Why do you think this never caught on?

i saw it a few times, it was OK, but it was in a dead timeslot and it wasn't that great, and needed better guest stars

I think I saw part of an episode when it was first on. I don't remember a thing about it except the boat.

Cool

I saw several episodes of this show. I tuned into this show hoping it would recreate the spirit and atmosphere of the original. I found that it didn't. In fact the only episode I really enjoyed was the one were several members of the original cast guest starred.

I think UPN expected too much of this show, considering how some other low rated fare kept on going for years....

I liked the show. So did my parents (and they like the origianl as well). I don't know why it didn't last.

It also didn't really fit into the UPN's target (ghetto) demographic.

I saw a few episodes and it seemed like an ok show but I can see where it failed on the UPN.

The show wasn't bad, but they didn't get any big-draw guest stars, and it was a terminal case of "one of these things is not like the others" on UPN.

I watched a few episodes. The only reason I even bothered to watch it was because WCW superstars Bill Goldberg and Kevin Nash made an appearance in one episode and I was a huge wrestling fan at the time. Rue McClanahan also appeared in that episode, IIRC. I remember watching the reunion show, but after a few more eps, I just lost interest.

Yeah, if you want good ratings, you need better guest stars than people like Clooney's ex-wife, the guy who played Cody on Step By Step, ALF, and Winnie and Wayne from the Wonder Years.

Was the Love Boat: The Next Wave a real sitcom? I heard some sources say that it was a drama.

I've never seen the show so I can't comment from first-hand knowledge but from what I know the show is officially listed as a "comedy" and not a "drama".
