Aired on: FOX, spring 1996
Network TV audiences were not prepared for an antihero like Jim Profit (Adrian Pasdar) when the critically hailed series made its debut in April 1996. Ratings were bad, and a number of affiliates threatened to pull the show from their schedules, leading to the show's cancellation after just four weeks. The amoral Profit telegraphed the coming cable-drama revolution, but he was out of place on a broadcast network at the time.
