Short-Lived Shows: Throb - VIDEO
It was called Throb, and it was about the goings-on at an indie record label. It focused mostly on a single mom, played by Diana Canova, who was cute and always good in everything she did. I can't remember one single plot from the show, other than the basic plot that ran throughout the whole show, Canova's attempt to juggle being a single mom and also running a business (and dealing with the cast of characters at the label, of course).
Like most sitcoms of the 80s, it's fun to see what actors appeared on the show before becoming famous, and this one had several. Canova's 12 year-old son was played by Paul Walker, long before The Fast and the Furious (he was replaced in the second season). Her co-workers at the label included Jane Leeves (Frasier), Maryedith Burrell (Fridays, Seinfeld), and Jonathan Prince, an actor who appeared in everything in the 80s and 90s and is now a producer on The Cleaner and was a producer on Cane and American Dreams. George Clooney made an appearance on one episode. (Update: found the video below. Thanks YouTube!)
This is another one of those shows, along with It's A Living (another syndicated sitcom I loved, which ran around the same time) that I can't imagine ever appearing on DVD. But let's hope someone at YouTube or Hulu or AOL Video decides to upload a few episodes one day.
