Premiered after the Super Bowl.
2.3.2006 10:53am
Shows I have never seen an entire episode of, and don't want to.
2.3.2006 10:59am
All these shows have been parodied on Family Guy.

A-Team: Peter &Company form their own A-Team.
Wonder Years: One of the many tv shows that the family watches (I'm pretty sure, but this is my weak one)
Homicide: "Homicide:Life on Sesame Street" featuring the drunk Bert that's abusive of his male lover Ernie.
Family Guy: numerous times, most prominently when they did the reality show about Meg.

The A-Team did not premiere after the Super Bowl.

Actually, the two hour pilot episode aired as an NBC Sunday Night Movie, on January 23, 1983. The first regular 1 hour episode, "Children of Jamestown," aired following the Super Bowl on January 30, 1983. With the next episode, "Pros and Cons," it would move to it's Tuesday night, 8 pm EST time-slot, where it would remain until the 5th-season where it moved to Friday nights at 8 pm.

But the other 3 TV shows mentioned did.

Commentation, the wonder years reference in family guy was when peter blamed meg for cutting off cable tv -- meg is sitting in class, weighing in her head whether to accept the blame or peter's promise of a car.
2.3.2006 12:41pm
They were all cancelled and then brought back to TV after cancellation?

Despite huge amounts of violence, no one actually dies.*

Wait, except on Homicide.


*The violence on The Wonder Years is spiritual.

All feature fools. In the A-Team they are pitied, in the Wonder Years they are mocked, in Homicide they are killed, and in Family Guy they are glorified.
