But there are some TV stars that disappeared from our beloved TV screens. Click through our slideshow to see which ones we're talking about:

Is HBO Losing Its Edge?

The Sopranos
Remember the slogan, "It's not TV, It's HBO?" Well, up until a couple months ago this marketing ploy actually rang true. HBO has long been the trendsetter of original series that break all boundaries and push audiences' perception of what television is and should be.

Unfortunately, thanks to the culminations of the network's most beloved quartet of series - Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, and most recently The Wire - the Crown Royal of premium cable programming is in threat of losing its edge over the best of the rest.

There was a time when HBO stood for first-run...

John From Cincinnati
Set in the town of Imperial Beach, John From Cincinnati focused on the multigenerational Yost family, led by Mitch Yost (Bruce Greenwood), a onetime surfing legend who had been forcibly retired (except for a few early-morning forays into the waves) by a serious knee injury. The complete series is now on DVD. Also on DVD: seasons one of Becker and Father Knows Best, season four of "Martin," season six of Law & Order: SVU, and seasons eight of Murder She Wrote and That '70s Show.

Beverly Hills, 90210
Rob Thomas (Dawson's Creek, Veronica Mars) is helming a "Beverly Hills, 90210" spinoff, which like the original will revolve around a family with two teenagers who move from the Midwest to Beverly Hills. There's no word on whether any of the original cast will appear.

Aaron Spelling sure knew what the public favored when he launched the original series back in 1990. The show aired until 2000, completing 10 seasons.

The show began when twins Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) Walsh moved from Minnesota to California. After 10 seasons, the series ended with the...

'Sarah Connor Chronicles:' Cromartie Is Back, John Is Still A Wuss & Sarah Is Still Bad Ass

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
After a week off from all the nonsense in "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" we find ourselves quickly reintroduced to our favorite terminator in progress, Cromartie. You might remember that in the last episode our metal friend took a bloodbath to replace his skin and also stole some yummy eyes. These eyes weren't for eating though. These eyes were for seeing, and that's just what they'll do.

Cromartie, having created a suitable canvas, has now tracked down a plastic surgeon who he will convince to do reconstructive surgery on his face, fix the bump in his nose and fill out his...

The Stars Of 'Cheers' & 'Married...With Children:' Where Are They Now?

Married…With Children
In the 80s, viewers tuned in to two series that featured some of the most popular theme songs on television: "Married...With Children" and "Cheers." What happened to the stars of these popular shows?

Cheers (1982-93)

Who can forget the words from the opening sequence: Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got/Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot/Wouldn't you like to get away?

For 11 great years we watched regulars Carla (Rhea Pearlman), Norm (George Wendt), Cliff (John Ratzenberger) and Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) come into the Cheers ...

Fans Rally To Bring Back 'John From Cincinnati'

John From Cincinnati
Thousands of HBO viewers are united with a single mission: to convince HBO to put a new season of "John From Cincinnati" on the air.

Now they're taking out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter to make sure HBO hears their message.

The pricey ad (the funds were collected in only eight days) is just the latest volley in an effort coordinated by members of that includes petition drives, two different postcard campaigns, homemade video appeals, teddy bears and honeycombs (references from the series), and countless phone calls, emails, and letters sent to HBO executive...
