The original ABC TGIF (1990 - 2001)
20 April 2005 | by morrisphilcoSee all my reviews

Well It wasn't a Sitcom nor a talk show, it was just in between.

ABS's TGIF was actually little shorts that were aired in between shows during the original air of TGIF in 1990's and when you look at the cast list its not like they were all on there on the same time each person came on joked around and announced the shows and pretty much had a good time

At times stars appeared on it like the Backstreet Boys in 1997 but the new millennium came TGIF was starting to be a lost cause and eventually ABC cut TGIF in 2001.

But was re-aired in 2003. But nothing can compare to the original
