Designing Women is a beloved CBS show which ran for seven seasons from 1986 to 1993. The series focuses on the lives of four women and one man as they work together to run an interior design firm in Georgia.

In season six Burke and Smart would be replace by Julia Duffy and Jan Hooks, but in season seven Judith Ivey takes over as Suzanne.


TV Land's captivating dramedy Younger is back this summer, and this season's trailer makes one thing clear: the truth hurts. Last season, Liza (Sutton Foster) finally admitted her bombshell secret to Kelsey (Hilary Duff) – that she's not 26 and she's been lying all along – and viewers will get to see how it all unfolds on the Wednesday, June 28 premiere at 10pm. But Liza's relationship with Kelsey is not the only thing left in shambles. Her boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) was left broken when he stumbled upon Liza and her boss, Charles (Peter Hermann), kissing right before he was about to propose. With her professional and personal lives on the line, Liza might only be left with the truth.

Season four of the Darren Star-created series will also see some amazing guest stars, including Emmy® and Tony® winner Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked, Pushing Daisies) as Marylynne Keller, a DC "spin doctor" trying to sell a book to Empirical; heartthrob Charles Michael Davis (The Originals) as Zane Anders, a competitor (and maybe more) to Kelsey; Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show) as Jay Mallick, a 40-something publisher that approaches Liza to run her own imprint; Jennifer Westfeldt (Friends with Kids) as Pauline, a new author that Liza meets and in whom she sees herself; Meredith Hagner (Search Party), who plays Montana, a young artist and fan of Maggie's (Debi Mazar) work; and Phoebe Dynevor (Snatch), playing Clare, an Irish bartender that befriends Liza and the group. Younger will also see the return of some fan favorites this summer, including Michael Urie (Ugly Betty) as literary agent Redmond; Mather Zickel (Masters of Sex) as Diana's (Miriam Shor) live-in boyfriend Richard; Tessa Albertson (The Good Wife) as Liza's daughter Caitlin; and Ben Rappaport (Mr. Robot) as Max, Lauren's (Molly Bernard) doctor boyfriend.
