Playmakers, the football drama that aired very briefly on ESPN. The shady fúcks in the NFL pressured ESPN to cancel it because its stories hit too close to home. But it was fantastic.

Matt Houston only lasted 3 seasons. It could have lasted longer. 

 

Married The First Year (1979). David Jacobs created this show prior to Knots Landing's debut. I have never seen full episodes, but figure since it was a DJ project, it could have had potential. 

 

There is a youtube channel run by Gilmore Box. He has LOTS of openings from short lived shows that have long been forgotten.

I've seen that channel and there is indeed some amazing stuff there. 😎

Homefront ran for two seasons, but the second was on against Cheers at 9 PM ET on Thursdays during its final season. During its first year, it was on Tuesday night, so maybe your grandmother didn't realize it was on at a different day. It is still one of my favorites from the 90s, and wish it had continued though I was glad to get the 40 episodes we did get.

I feel like I have SO many lol. I'll have to do some thinking. It's one of the reasons I don't try and attach myself to any new show until I know it has a future.

 

Anyone remember the FOX soap Get Real with pre-fame Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, pre-NCIS Eric Christian Olsen, Debrah Farentino and Jon Tenney?

 

SUCH a good cast. Wonder if anyone at Fox looks back on that and remembers they once had Eisenberg and Hathaway?

OK, I stand corrected. Thanks!

Cane (starting Jimmy Smits) 

The Eleventh Hour (Rufus Sewell) 

 

Cane was more than likely a victim of the writers strike. 

 

Both shows we're one season greatness on CBS.
