10 Weird Rules 90s TV Shows Were Forced To Follow

The '90s. The decade of extreme sports, grunge music and sitcoms with a message. There were wholesome family shows like Full House, Step By Step, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Family Matters. Then there were serious teen dramas, like 90210, and Dawson's Creek. There were also cynical thirty-something shows, like Friends, Seinfeld, and even Frasier. There was even a gluttony of supernatural shows, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed, as well as all the Star Trek.

The landscape of '90s television was getting more varied, as burgeoning networks competed for ratings, and a new frontier of progressive television was blossoming. The end of the decade would see the rise of dramatic serialized television the likes of which we enjoy today. But before that could happen, the shows seemed to conform to a litany of tropes. As varied as each series was,

Family Matters: 10 Storylines That Were Never Resolved

The mid-'90s was something of a golden period for family-centered sitcoms, with programs like Full House, Home Improvement, and Step by Step focusing on the trials and tribulations of large, rowdy broods with hapless fathers, angsty teens, and wacky neighbors. Family Matters, which aired on ABC from 1989 until 1997 (and then on CBS from '97-'98) was centered nicely into the niche left by The Cosby Show, and just to the right of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

It focused on policeman Carl Winslow, his wife Harriette (a character from Perfect Strangers), their three children, her mother, and the irrepressible Steve Urkel. "Urkel" and his many zany catchphrases and geeky oddness became the focus of the series as time went on, allowing for more bizarre storylines like cloning and possessed puppets. Over the course of nine seasons, many of the plot points introduced were never touched on again, to varying

Sitcom reboots aren't going away anytime soon. Deadline reports WarnerMedia is considering reviving some classic sitcoms such as Step by Step, Perfect Strangers, and Family Matters.

WarnerMedia Narrows Down a Name for Its Upcoming Streaming Service

WarnerMedia‘s upcoming streaming service may finally have a name to go with its massive library of in-the-work titles. Though multiple names are still being considered, TVLine has learned that HBO Max is currently the unofficial frontrunner.

The name makes sense when you consider that all of HBO’s current subscribers are expected to be automatically enrolled in the new streaming service, giving it a huge advantage when it launches sometime in 2020. The service, which will bundle HBO, Cinemax and a collection of Warner Bros. properties, will reportedly cost subscribers between $16 and $17 a month.

From Perfect Strangers to Family Matters, These Tgif Shows Might Get Revivals

Move over Tanners, the Winslow family—or Balki and Larry—could be the latest classic sitcom family making a comeback. According to a Deadline report, WarnerMedia is keen on replicating the success Netflix had with Fuller House and rebooting/reviving a classic sitcom from the Tgif days of yore for the upcoming streaming service. Deadline says Warner-produced shows Step by Step, Perfect Strangers, Family Matters and Hangin' With Mr. Cooper are being eyeballed. The report stressed all talks are exploratory, but sitcom revivals/continuations have proved to be successful. In addition to Fuller House, which is going into its fifth and final season on Netflix, Roseanne returned to record ratings before losing...

WarnerMedia Streamer Eyes Reboots Of Warner Bros TV TGIF Comedies Like ‘Step by Step’, ‘Perfect Strangers’ & ‘Family Matters’

WarnerMedia Streamer Eyes Reboots Of Warner Bros TV TGIF Comedies Like ‘Step by Step’, ‘Perfect Strangers’ & ‘Family Matters’
Exclusive: More than three years ago, Netflix successfully opened a new area of original programming, the family sitcom, with a reboot of Warner Bros TV’s Tgif comedy Full House. The sequel series was a breakout hit, tapping into nostalgia for those who had grown up with the original series while also drawing a new generation of viewers.

That success was probably not lost on WarnerMedia executives as they are prepping the launch of a streaming platform to rival Netflix and have been discussing with Warner Bros TV brass library titles they can exploit for the new service.

I hear the WarnerMedia streamer is eyeing reboots of other Wbtv-produced classic Tgif comedies, like Step by Step, Perfect Strangers, its spinoff Family Matters, as well as Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper. Sources stressed that talks are in exploratory stages, and it’s unclear whether any of the potential revivals would come to fruition,

TV Review: ‘Schooled’

  • Variety
ABC’s recent tradition of family-friendly half-hours continues with “Schooled,” a half-hour spinoff of period comedy “The Goldbergs” that moves character Lainey Lewis (Aj Michalka) into adulthood, where she’s returning to her high school to teach music to a group of jaded ‘90s kids. The show’s action transpires, coincidentally or not, during a golden era for sitcoms that tweens, teens, and parents could watch together, one in which ABC broadcast shows including “Step by Step” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”. Given its setting and its premise, so simple as to be a throwback, it’d seem like “Schooled” is set up for, if not greatness, than at least amiable, “Hanging With Mr. Cooper”-style competence.

But for all the references to late-20th-century culture crammed into the first installment—the pilot’s plot hinges, at different points, on a bottle of much-pilloried malt cooler Zima and on Phil Donahue

Christina Aguilera, New Kids on the Block on Braving a Soggy New Year’s Rockin’ Eve
The 2018 edition of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve turned into a rain-soaked spectacle for performers Christina Aguilera, New Kids on the Block, Dan + Shay and Bastille, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the artists, waterlogged hosts Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy, or the crowd of over 1 million revelers who crammed into New York’s Times Square for hours on Monday.

Aguilera, clad in a large, belted, snow-white ball gown and towering thigh-high boots, looked regal as she nailed a long medley of her hits “Genie in a Bottle,” “Come on Over, “’Aint No Other Man, “Can’t Hold Us Down” and “Fighter” while a steady rain poured down — she thanked the crowd for braving the elements and, after the performance, joked that her daughter’s middle name is Rain, so she felt right at home.

New Kids on the Block Singer Jonathan Knight Lands Hgtv Show

  • The Wrap
New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits — and now one of the very grown men has his own Hgtv show, or at least a pilot. Jonathan Knight is set to restore an old New England farmhouse in “Farmhouse Fixer.”

The Grammy nominee has renovated more than 200 houses over 20 years, per the popular cable channel. For television, Knight plans to preserve a centuries-old farmhouse’s historic charm while adding a modern layout with high-end amenities, Hgtv said in a media release.

And yes, he’ll do it all “Step by Step,” we’re sure.

“Old farmhouses are American treasures,” Knight said. “Most have been in the same family for 200 years and have never been renovated. And they’re disappearing fast. If we don’t save them, they’re going to be gone.”

Fresh Off the Boat: Jaleel White to Guest-Star as Part of ABC's New Tgif
