Think Family Affair with less money and no family relation between kids and the “dad” — Oh, and no Mr. French, either. An utterly forgettable series, except that future gah-gah movie star Salma Hayek was a cast regular the first year.
Something you’ll notice in the early 90’s that continued through the decade (and even spilled into the next century) is the enormous amount of shows built around the stage banter of comedians. 1994 was a pretty egregious year for this trend, with almost a dozen shows premiering, based on different comedians’ acts. Of course the comedians were the stars of these shows.
