The show originally premiered on ABC for the 1995-96 season. Despite receiving decent ratings, ABC cancelled it. It was subsequently picked up by NBC, and, in order to give it time to retool the show, and make some cast changes, it began its run on NBC as a springtime replacement in January 1997 (the first episode was called, "We're At NBC Now"). It was renewed for a third season. However, after still more changes to the show, ratings plummeted, and the show was cancelled. Since NBC had ordered a full season, several shows were never aired during its broadcast run. Téa Leoni is the only cast member to have remained with the show throughout its entire run. See more »

The first season of this show was brilliant! It was edgy, and took pot-shots at popular celebs. Unfortunately ABC canceled it. NBC picked it up, but destroyed it. They changed the tabloid to a magazine, made George Wendt the owner of the magazine, and immediately took the edge off (NBC can't be edgy at all, I think it must be in their charter). The show then sucked until the final episode, which took place in a hot air balloon. It was one of the only series finales that actually ended with style.
