In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
"The Sweet Life" on HBO's Comedy Channel was a very hip and hysterically funny sketch/talk show starring singer Rachel Sweet. So few homes had cable in '89 and '90 -- and even the houses with cable didn't usually carry the Comedy Channel(now known as Comedy Central) -- but if "The Sweet Life" had been seen by more people, I know it would have had a HUGE following. Rachel was a fantastic, downtown-hip host and the sketches were just fantastically funny! Jon Stewart, who was a writer on the show, was often featured in the sketches. Even the guests on "The Sweet Life" were before-their-time -- like Queen Latifah, Crowded House, Colin Quinn, Paul Reiser, Sandra Bernhart, Nick Bakay, etc. My friends and I watched "The Sweet Life" every night and it was the main topic of conversation the next morning! Loved, loved this show!
