"Anything But Love" is an American television sitcom, which aired on ABC from 1989 to 1992. The show starred Richard Lewis as Marty Gold and Jamie Lee Curtis as Hannah Miller, coworkers with a mutual romantic attraction to each other, who struggled to keep their relationship strictly professional.

The show's cast also included Ann Magnuson, Richard Frank, Holly Fulger, Sandy Faison, Louis Giambalvo, Billy Van Zandt and Bruce Weitz.

Production run

While the show was initially popular in its abbreviated first season, the show was significantly retooled for the second season, with many first season cast members dropped and the plot line revamped to have Hannah promoted to writer after the magazine is taken over by new owners.

Further, ABC moved the show's time slot around numerous times, causing a large drop in the series' ratings. The show went on a long hiatus beginning in late summer 1990; the third season did not begin until February 1991. ABC then settled down scheduling with a single Wednesday slot, which stabilized audiences enough to grant the series a fourth season. In the fall of 1991, "Anything but Love" was moved to the unusual time slot of Wednesday at 10/9c, as a part of an all-comedy block that was short-lived. Ratings slipped again, and the show resumed a series of time slot switches.

Unusually, however, the show was not canceled by the network. Instead, the production company pulled the plug on the show, having calculated that the show would not get renewed and would be unprofitable in first-run syndication.

Guest stars

A young Tia Carrere guest starred exactly once as the now grown-up, Asian-born college student Marty had once sponsored as a child. Interestingly, Carrere would later go on to play Richard Lewis' girlfriend on several episodes of the 2007 season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm". She would also be cast alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in the blockbuster, "True Lies".

DVD Release

On February 6, 2007, 20th Century Fox released Anything But Love- Volume 1, a 3-disc boxset featuring the first 28 episodes of the series on DVD in Region 1 for the first time.
