Trivia

In July 1999, Robert Wuhl appeared on World Championship Wrestling's Monday Nitro in the company's dying days as a guest announcer. He did not appear as himself but was named as Arliss and acted in character. The Arliss appearance was panned by fans and wrestling critics, especially because most people didn't know what an "Arli$$" was. See more »

Quotes

[Show opening voiceover]
Arliss Michaels: For most of us the dream of becoming a champion remains a fantasy. But for a special few it is very much a reality. We cheer them. We live through them. Athletes are our last warriors. My job is to make their dreams come true. My name is Arliss Michaels. I represent athletes. These are my stories.

Can be great
4 July 2000 | by (Ann Arbor, MI) – See all my reviews

I have watched Arli$$ from the beginning, and believe that the quality has deteriorated a great deal. However, when the show deals with serious topics in a serious manner (and still manages to work in some humor) such as recent episodes dealing with domestic violence and steroid use, it is one of the most compelling comedies on television.
