Down the Shore, Up the Creek: Another Fox Casualty
"Down the Shore"--a show about a group of guys enjoying their summer in a townhouse on the beach-- premiered in the Summer of 1992, a time when FOX threw just about anything at the wall to see if it would stick. And I have to tell you, not much stuck. I guess they figured if they released this show during the summer it would catch on more since it was set on a beach and stuff, but it didn't happen. I can't really criticize this show. The only character whom I remember was a polite overweight guy who never got the girl. The show was cancelled later in the summer of 1992, along with other Fox bombs like Bill and Ted, Parker Lewis, and Vinnie and Bobbie. Fox then revived the show a full year later, in July of 1993. The Fox Execs' decision to authorize the show's revival after an entire year is something that rarely happens now and will never happen again--with a highly expanded cable format and the Internet vying for the American public's increasingly fickle attention. Alas, the show returned in 1993 and very shortly was shown the door once again. I believe in the last episode the long suffering overweight guy got to shack up with a hot blonde. So at least the show ended on a high note.
You might find it interesting (well, maybe not) that the only new Fox show that was not immediately cancelled from 1990-1993 was a show called Herman's Head. Then Leslie Nielsen guest starred playing god on one episode and Fox's great white hope was suddenly given the ax. Coincidence? You decide.
