31. Baywatch Nights (1995)
From: Baywatch

GemLil's rating:


 

Most of them are abominable, however once in a while; the spin-off out does the original. This is a list of spinoff shows, in which one character of the location/situation is carried across from one show to another. i.e. Frasier Crane from Cheers to 'Frasier' the series.



This is a list for spin offs from one television show to another; it does not include TV spin offs from movies or games; such a 'Timon and Pumbaa', from 'The Lion King'.

If you think of anything that needs to be added, please let me know; please include the original show and the cross-over character(s). Thanks.

NB: Special thanks to RB6K for his help and insane TV knowledge.

great concept.

What about Sienfeld? Didn't it spinoff a Kramer show?
Posted: 6 years, 6 months ago at Apr 28 22:16
I'm trying to find out about that; I cant find a Kramer show atm.

Missing:

- Law and Order SVU and Law and Order Criminal Intent (from Law and Order)
- Melrose Place (from Beverly Hills 90210)
- Degrassi: The Next Generation (from Degrassi Jr. High/Degrassi High, which were both spinoffs from The Kids of Degrassi St. Degrassi: Next Gen was well over a decade after Degrassi High ended, but they got several actors to do the next show - as adults and parents to the new group of teens.)
- Kung Fu: The Legend Continues (from Kung Fu. Same actor - David Carradine)
- all of Star Trek spinoffs (from Star Trek)
- there was an X-files spinoff but i think it was very shortlived. never was a fan, but they filmed it in my hometown.

A couple of suggestions .. Crusade - Spin off from Babylon 5.
Tucker's Luck - Spin off from Grange Hill.
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Jun 25 16:29
@ Lemona..thanks, but who are the cross over characters from those??

@ Escafeld: Who was in both Crusade and Bab 5??
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Jun 25 16:38
The Drakh
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Jun 25 16:40
Also Lemona, im in a bit of a debate over whether, 'next generation', 'the legend continues' kinda things are spin-offs or just series'.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Apr 13 18:47
I must say this is a great list!

and I'd just like to add that I think this list is missing:
Private Practice- Dr. Addison Montgomery (from Grey's Anatomy)
Absolutely Fabulous (Ab Fab) - (from French and Saunders more specificity the sketch: Modern Mother and Daughter.)

And Ray Carling and Chris Skelton that were in both Life on March and Ashes to Ashes
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Mar 27 16:09
You left out "CSI: NY" another spinoff of Crime Scene Investigation.
