When it premiered in September 1993 - initially as a fixture on the NBC Thursday night line-up, following Seinfeld - this situation comedy turned heads with its deliberately grimy and skeevy look and setting. Night Court alumnus John Larroquette starred as John Hemingway, a man with a rather unfortunate past that involved losing a prosperous career and his family to alcohol addiction. When the program began, he was thoroughly sober, but the only steady job that he could land was the graveyard shift, managing the dangerous Crossroads bus station in an unsavory section of St. Louis. Aiding him in his attempts to run the sorry place were a loudmouthed assistant named Mahalia (Liz Torres); the place's ne'er-do-well janitor, Heavy Gene (Chi McBride); and the bigoted black manager of the snack bar, Dexter (Daryl 'Chill' Mitchell). Also lurking nearby were a couple of cops, Hampton (Lenny Clarke) and Eggers (Elizabeth Berridge) who seemed far more interested in mowing down on donuts than they were in enforcing the law. Despite its unusually dark vibe, The John Larroquette Show actually sustained healthy ratings for several years, before being cancelled midway through its fourth season, in the fall of 1996.
The classic sitcom set at New York's Sunshine Cab Co. won three straight Emmys as Outstanding Comedy Series and had one of the all-time great ensembles, including Judd Hirsch, Danny DeVito, Andy Kaufman, Marilu Henner, Tony Danza and Jeff Conaway.
