Storyline

The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

comment on the sad state of TV
24 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remembering the vast numbers of shows out there in TV Land like this one that COULD be shown, it irritates me no end how of the 5 million channels out there, not one of them shows shows like this! (Not even TV Land hmmmm...what potential wasted there!).Instead they all seem to want to be the same station doing the same stuff. Over and over with the same stuff! At any rate I think it would be great and that there'd be a steady niche audience for a station (or several stations) that switched up constantly and aired Loss Leaders like Cannon. There are SO MANY to pick from. Why oh why won't they take a chance and show them? Well I'm sure it's that they don't believe they can make a safe buck that way.
