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 "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 »

Beyond Brilliant
4 July 2003 | by LivingDogSee all my reviews

Arli$$ is beyond brilliant. It is down-to-earth, greedy, and real! I am not a sports fan, but I can't wait to see the next present in store for me when I watch Arli$$. There is no show in TV's history that is able to entertain and move you at the same time, than Arli$$.

The cast:

Robert Wuhl as Arliss Michaels should receive an Emmy

Jim Turner as Kirby Carlisle should receive an Emmy

Sandra Oh as Rita Wu should receive an Emmy (and I luv her! :)

Michael Boatman as Stanley Babson should receive an Emmy

I can't imagine a better cast. They all perform 110%. They bring their characters to life. This show is incredible!!!
