Obscure Series of the Week,Grand.

Grand was an unusual sitcom that ran on NBC from January to December 1990.Unusual in the fact that it had a large cast and continuing(at least in the first season,more on that later)story arcs.The series had an all star cast consiting of Michael Mckeon(of Laverne and Shirley fame),Bonnie Hunt(she has a new show every season which never lasts),Joel(Bill's Brother) Murry,that chick fron Kindergarden Cop,and plump and juicy Sara Rue.The show focued on the lives of people of three different social classes in a fictional town called what else but Grand.It was a mid season replacement which returned for a second season .When it returned though it was in a differnet format.Gone were the continuing story arcs and the cast was alot smaller due to the fact that the majority of the television viewing audience was too dumb to deal with this,or at least the network boneheads thought so.Due to this and the fact that is was on opposite the ever popular Twin Peaks the series was eventually cancelled.Maybe if they killed Joel Murry's character and wrapped him in plastic the series would've lasted longer.Anyway here ya go.
