The Round Table is an American television series that aired on NBC on Friday nights from September 18, 1992 to October 16, 1992.[1]

Series[edit]

The series is set in Washington D.C. and focuses on the lives of a group of professionals in their mid-twenties, who frequent a bar called The Round Table. (In this way, it was reminiscent of the 1985 "brat pack" film St. Elmo's Fire.) It aired at 9pm Eastern on Friday nights, and although the competition was not particularly strong (mostly Dinosaurs on ABC and the final season of Designing Women on CBS, neither of which was in the Top 25 for the season), The Round Table was cancelled after just five episodes, plus two that were produced but did not air. Many of the show's stars would later surface in other projects.

The series was produced by Aaron Spelling, who had another series that premiered that fall: Melrose Place, which was a hit and ran seven seasons.
