Bouncy babes and sculpted hunks posed as L.A.'s finest lifeguards in this wildly popular series that was eye candy for both men and women. Although it lasted for only one season on NBC, it became an international hit when it switched over to first-run syndication. In 1999, the action moved from California to Hawaii ('Baywatch Hawaii'). It also produced a spin-off ('Baywatch Nights').
A popular military drama about cases tried by Judge Advocate General (JAG) lawyers is not strictly courtroom-bound as its stars often take to the field to investigate. The series premiered on NBC in September 1995, but its audience built steadily after it moved to CBS in January 1997, a move that executive producer Donald P. Bellisario says allowed for 'more mix of courtroom [and] personal stories.' The series spun off 'NCIS.'
