No, these aren't the best. Just wondering which you considered better.

Ehhhhhh, Grace Under Fire was the only one that I watched enough to truly judge, so I'll go with it. It wasn't too bad.

I was expecting an X-files/ER/NYPD:Blue/Seinfeld throwdown.

I don't remember any of them. A couple may sound familiar, but I don't want to google all of them to remember anything.

I guess I would have to vote "Phenom" since it is the only one I remember watching.

For the record the show did have Jennifer Lien.

i'm with everyone else. I'm not even sure what some of these are.

Father Dowling was the one with Tom Bosley, Right? Never watched it.

Grace Under Fire was the Roseanne ripoff, right? Only watched one or twice.

Never even heard of the others.

For a second I thought I remembered Living Single as the one with Jonathan Silverman,, but I think that was something else. I also thought Madman of the People wass the one with Tony Shalhoub but that was Stark Raving Mad if I remember correctly.

I didn't watch any of these, but was Madman of the People the one with Dabney Coleman? I like him, so I guess I'd vote for that one.

Grace Under Fire had Dave Thomas. It wasn't a terrible time killer.

If I have not heard of most of them then they must not have been around for very long. I remember Father Dowling Mysteries because Mr. C wa in it but it was not something I liked.
What a horrible thread.
What's next, the choice of Manimal over Supertrain?

Father Dowling was the only one I didn't watched. I voted Madman since I'm a Dabney Coleman fan.

Grace Under Fire was probably the better show but I had to vote for Phenom which is such an obscure yet awesome show. I recently rewatched all of the Phenom episodes and was glad to see it holds up really well. I'd love to see Phenom on DVD.

I chose Living Single because the lawyer chick was really hot and wore ridiculously short skirts a lot of the time.
