On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

The Rousters is an adventure drama that aired on NBC.

Wyatt Earp III works as a bouncer for the traveling Sladetown Carnival, run by "Cactus Jack" Slade. Wyatt doesn't care for his embarrassing name or the legacy it represents, but his shotgun-toting mother Amanda wants to carry on the "family tradition" of keeping law and order through bounty hunting.

Wyatt's brother Evan has a penchant for con artistry and bungled repair-work; this character is mostly comic relief. Slade's lion-taming daughter Ellen is dating Wyatt and tutoring his teenage son Michael.
