* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Creator/TheBBC, not CBS. The series wasn't bought for showing on British terrestrial television until after the Dan Quayle affair, several years after it had started. [=BBC2=] then dumped it in the same early evening slot that played host to ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' and ''Series/[=DeGrassi=]JuniorHigh'', and pulled it after the first eight episodes had been shown. (Reviewers making unflattering comparisons to ''DropTheDeadDonkey'' didn't help... interestingly, [[AmericansHateTingle that series flopped when it was shown in America]].)

Added DiffLines:

** Highly unlikely, given the poor sales for the season 1 set and the high cost of licensing the vintage Motown music used on the show.
This list shows the last 10 events of 13. Show all.
