Tgif Turns 25: Looking Back at the Family-Friendly Sitcoms That Defined '90s TV
If you were a child or a parent during the early '90s, there's a good chance that ABC's Tgif lineup graced your TV set. Remember Tgif?

The 1994–95 TV Season Was Very, Very Good to George Clooney
Welcome to the final day of our survey of the hugely influential 1994–95 network-television season, which found Friends, ER, and My So-Called Life hobnobbing on the same schedule with Seinfeld, The Simpsons, and The X-Files. We’ve counted down the season’s 100 best episodes, presented an oral history of the first season of Party of Five, heard crazy tales from the season-three writers' room of Melrose Place; talked to the NBC executives behind Must-See TV Thursday, and much more. Up now: an examination of how George Clooney’s celebrity ballooned after ER debuted on September 19, 1994.Before George Clooney landed the role of Dr. Doug Ross on NBC’s ER, the actor, then 33 going into the fall season, was known primarily for his stints on Roseanne, Facts of Life, and Sisters. Closer TV-watchers knew that he’d also suffered through a string of misses over the previous decade, in stuff like Baby Talk,

Remembering the Best and Worst of ABC’s Tgif Lineup

Remembering the Best and Worst of ABC’s Tgif Lineup
In fall 1993, a coming-of-age comedy called “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC’s “Tgif” Friday night lineup; 21 years later, its sequel series, “Girl Meets World,” is debuting on the Disney Channel with many of the original cast members reprising their roles for a new generation.

Few could have anticipated the enduring popularity of the family sitcom — which starred Ben Savage as Cornelius “Cory” Matthews and Danielle Fishel as his first love and eventual wife, Topanga Lawrence — but ABC’s Tgif block was responsible for a number of iconic comedies during its initial run between 1989 and 2000, many of which still live on in syndication today. And, as with all networks, the roster was also responsible for some spectacular trainwrecks, with concepts so surreal, you’d think a kid pitched them while on a sugar high.

  • Pop2it
We're suckers for a little nostalgia, so when we came across this circa 1990 ABC promo spot -- featuring stars of ABC's past including Neil Patrick Harris ("Doogie Howser"), Richard Dean Anderston ("MacGyver"), Kyle MacLachlan ("Twin Peaks"), Alyssa Milano ("Who's the Boss"), Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years"), the entire "Full House" crew (including at least one teensy Olsen twin), Roseanne (who is surrounded by a bevy of mini-clones), the animated "Beetlejuice" and those lovable cut-ups from "Perfect Strangers" -- well, we knew we were going to watch it at least once.

After repeated viewings, we don't hesitate one bit in encouraging you to do the same.

Also be on the look-out for clips short-lived sitcoms "Baby Talk" (starring George Clooney!), "Cop Rock" (ahead of its time) and "Going Places" (it went nowhere).

The ‘Look Who’s Talking’ Reunion That Will Never Happen

Things are very different from the days when Look Who’s Talking was an awesomely offbeat Amy Heckerling movie that was — and remains — super-duper weirdsies, but very, very entertaining. What a strange concept: an entire movie about talking babies! The franchise spurred no less than three sequels, and there was even a sitcom called Baby Talk that last two seasons and featured the voice of Tony Danza. The voice of Tony Danza, meaningwe never got to see him tap dance! ): ): ): The original Look Who’s Talking movies, however, feature Kirstie Alley and John Travolta in the lead roles as two boisterous New Yorkers whose stars cross and they fall in love and raise baby geniuses together. Both actors have seen their careers struggle since then, although Travolta found a resurgence in Pulp Fiction and Kirstie Alley in screaming about how fat she is before Dancing With The Stars

Never Forget: Baby Talk Was A Sitcom On Television

Just in case you were about to forget, there was a sitcom from 1991-1992 in which Tony Danza did the voice of a baby. Amid the backdrop of the Look Who’s Talking craze in the early 90′s (Craze? Uh huh, craze.), ABC put Baby Talk on real television that was capable of beaming into your living room. Also, Scott Baio was in it. Everything still checks out and makes sense in regards to the show’s opening sequence. So, yeah, those kids in the beginning part are old enough to actually talk themselves. And they probably sound nothing like Tony Danza. But, let’s not worry about that right now. Let’s just remember that this was a thing and it happened.
