A promo had Joe Rogan (Valente) muttering under his breath for the tough talking Rose Marie to 'shove it'.
"What did you say, Valente?" "I said I love it." Then he goes into this high squeal. "I love it! MUAH!" He was supposed to be the breakout pretty face in the show. Girls would watch it because he was so cute.
I do recall the mascot who was supposed to be so bad and that made him cool. (!!) He would appear at the end of the first episode to a heavy metal guitar bit, much like wrestlers do now on the WWE and Raw (whatever), and it was supposed to be sensational, like when Norm returned on Cheers one season.
Hardball, by the way, was the mascot's name as well. I guess he was supposed to be as mean and likable as this Stewie is now on "Family Guy." Fox went through this period where shows would have 'ball' in their name somewhere.
There would be an equally short lived medical show called Medicine Ball as well.
