Premise: Exotic locations and unapologetically shameless adoration of celebrities were the trademarks of this long-running series, which explored the world of the (very) well-to-do. British-born Robin Leach brought viewers champagne wishes and caviar dreams as he good-naturedly gushed over those enjoying lives of luxury. In 1994, the program was given a new name and a cohost: `Lifestyles with Robin Leach and Shari Belafonte.' When Belafonte left, the title was shortened to simply `Lifestyles.'
