Look at Dick Clark. Not a grey hair on his head and he's as popular now as he was 100 years ago.

In the episode "A Star is Born" [1.6], there are 2 different primetime versions, one with a storyline involving Ashley Shaffer trying out to be a televion anchor and a second verson completely without her. The differences between these 2 versions are as follows:
The original opening sequence features Ashley on a Sunday talk show. In the second version, the footage is replaced with Mike, Nicki and Carter betting on the Super Bowl.
The second version's press conference sequence replaces Ashley's lines with those of a different reporter's.
The original version has a sequence in which Ashley talks with Mike while walking down the hallway. In the second version, she's replaced with Stuart.
The original version contains a sequence where Mike and Ashley are in their apartment watching television, followed by a closing sequence where they make out off camera. In the second version, all of the footage is replaced with a completely different storyline in which Nicki and Carter interview a guy named "Guy" at a focus group meeting, whom both Nicki and Carter develop feelings for. They argue over what Guy's sexual preference is and ask him back to find out for sure, to which he replies that he is gay, but not interested in Carter.
A funny look at the inside of a political office. And Heather Locklear continues to look just fine.
I just started watching this sitcom just this past season, and though it's not an all time great show it has enough humor and wit to make it enjoyable to watch. Primarily the reasons I started watching "Spin City" in it's fourth season are Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear you can tell that great chemistry exist between the two. Though take nothing away from Michael J. Fox he was brilliant as always, but his replacement Sheen seems to be filling the big shoes well. I always liked Charlie it's nice to once again see him getting work in Hollywood even if it is on TV instead of the big screen. Sheen is not only great but hilarious as the womanizing assistant deputy mayor. Locklear complements him perfect as a direct straight to the point assistant who keeps him on his toes, and just to mention you thought Heather was a knockout back during her "Melrose Place" days then prepare to be double knocked out she continues to look fine wherever she goes I tell you Heather is my dream woman for life. The supporting cast is decent with the intelligent Michael Boatman and funny Alan Ruck and Barry Bostwick is very suitable as a crazy unaware New York City mayor. Start watching this show if you haven't already Sheen and Locklear are a delight also "Spin City" provides great laughs. It's nice to make fun of the political world for a change.
