How did David Lynch and Mark Frost capitalize on the zeitgeisty momentum sparked by Twin Peaks?  With 1992’s On The Air, an unlikely mash-up of, well, Happy Days and 30 Rock.  From its Wiki entry: “The program followed the antics of the staff of a fictional 1950s television network (Zoblotnick Broadcasting Company or ZBC), as they tried to put on a live variety program called ‘The Lester Guy Show’ with disastrous results.”

I loved it.  America did not.  ABC took On The Air off the air after airing only 3 of its 7 filmed episodes.  Why not decide for yourself, and watch some of it below?  If you like what you see, you can, for now, find a whole lot more of it here.
