1. Vaguely remember it.

Hill Street Blues or NYPD Blue meets Glee. I think David Caruso was in it, but not sure ... I know he went on to the first season of NYPD Blue. And it was on ABC. And I think either David E Kelley or Steven Cannell was the producer?

5. Same guys who wrote and produced Hill Street Blues.

All the music by Randy Newman. 11 episodes before being cancelled. I used to do musical theatre, so naturally, I loved it. I think it would get a better response these days.

Check out the song I posted. Sad. Sadder ending.

2. Possibly the worst idea for a show in the history of television.

6. Now - you are making a bold claim there...

 

Consider "My Mother the Car" and "Pink Lady and Jeff"

There were some downright horrible shows created

8. My Mother The Car was a brilliant concept compared to Cop Rock

Were the products of too much cocaine
