On the Television (1989) Poster

A fake T.V. show that reviewed non existing shows that were supposedly new. It not only spoofed "At the Movies" but actual shows that are similar to those they reviewed.

This show is/was hilarious
This show was not on for very long at all, but it was a terrific show. The two characters did reviews of fake TV Shows starring themselves. The one I remember best was "Heimlich; A Man and his Maneuver", in which Heimlich watches someone die from choking in a restaurant and exclaims "If only I had some type of maneuver!" He retires to his lab and forces his assistant to choke on candy while he tries a variety of maneuvers to save him.

I still laugh when I think about this show, it was a great blend of creative shows and the reviewers heartfelt comments. The two hosts play things so seriously. If this show ever comes out on DVD I would buy it in a heartbeat.
