tv raising the bar tnt

Okay, I’ll admit it, I have not seen a single episode of TNT’s legal drama Raising the Bar. But after Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s Late Night apparence as Zack Morris, I’d like to thank him by giving his show a chance.  It also helps that the show co-stars J. August Richards, aka Gunn from Joss Whedon’s Angel.  The series was created by David Feige and Steven Bochco. Bochco created such classics as Doogie Howser, M.D. and NYPD Blue.

In the new episode, Jerry (Gosselaar) and Michelle (Melissa Sagemiller) go before an overly strict new judge (John Michael Higgins) as Michelle falls for a cop that might be committing perjury. In addition to John Michael Higgins, the episode guest stars Jack Carter and Shelley Berman. The episode airs on TNT at 10PM.
