For just one season on Fox, Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton (a native Clevelander) played bickering co-anchors on this comedy set at fictional Pittsburgh news program WURG-TV News 9 (No WPXI, WTAE, or KDKA!). The news station may have been fake, but the talent on the series was real. Co-stars Ty Burrell and Josh Gad went on to have great success on Modern Family and in the film Frozen, respectively.
How to watch it: Pick up the DVD on Amazon or stream the three random episodes on Xfinity, depending on how big a Kelsey Grammer fan you are.
Star-crossed lovers Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. may have ended up meeting in Italy, but this movie starts in the 'Burgh where ‘90s Pittsburgh is on perfect, pristine display, when the Civic Arena and Three Rivers Stadium were still in existence and the foodie revolution was only a twinkle in the city’s eye. Although be prepared to cringe at Fisher Stevens’ Yinzer pronunciation of Italy (“It-ly!”).
How to watch it: Rent it from Amazon or your friend who's deep into '90s rom-coms.
