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 Show

Guest star Tom Selleck was one of the actors considered to replace Michael Douglas when he announced he was leaving the series. Selleck was also under consideration by QM Productions for a regular role on another series, Most Wanted, but he didn't get cast there either.
