"Buffalo Bill" is an American television situation comedy that featured the misadventures of an egotistical talk show host and his staff at a small TV station in Buffalo, New York. It premiered May 31, 1983 on NBC and ran for only part of two seasons (1983-84).

ynopsis

The series featured Dabney Coleman ("Buffalo" Bill Bittinger), Joanna Cassidy, John Fiedler, Max Wright, Geena Davis, Charles Robinson, Meshach Taylor, Claude Earl Jones and Pippa Pearthree. Most of the humor came from Bill's completely unredeemable qualities and from the staff's frustration at dealing with him.

The series received 11 Emmy Award nominations (including two for Outstanding Comedy Series). Joanna Cassidy also won a Golden Globe Award in 1984.

"Buffalo Bill" has developed a cult following ever since its original network run, even though it was re-aired just once on A&E. Former NBC President Brandon Tartikoff wrote in his memoirs that his biggest professional regret was canceling the show.Fact|date=May 2008
