    The lines beginning with '[n.nn]' contain the official episode title as
    obtained from the production company.  The numbers in brackets are an
    informal numbering scheme where the integer part indicates the season
    number and the fractional part gives the number of the episode in order
    of original air date.  NOTE:  these [n.nn] numbers are *NOT* based on
    official information and are completely unofficial.
    
    "Walker #", "Production #", and revision dates were obtained from
    copies of the scripts when available.
    
    The comment in curly braces following the title is a brief description
    of the blackout gag(s) at the beginning and end of the program.
    Additional information can be found in the episode guide supplement.
    [The blackout gag and credit information is not listed for some episodes
     because I have not seen them yet; the information will be added as it
     becomes available to me.]
    
    Sunday broadcasts were at 7:30 PM Eastern and Thursday broadcasts at 8:30 PM
    Eastern unless otherwise noted.
    
    The third season began in the summer with six new episodes.  The name
    of the show was changed to _Parker Lewis_, and the show moved from
    7:30 PM Sundays to 8:30 PM Thursdays.  Following a short hiatus, the
    show returned for four more episodes in September, three in its old
    7:30 PM Sunday time slot one at 7:00 PM Sunday night.  The show went
    on a long hiatus; it returned to the schedule March 21, 1993 in the
    Sunday, 7:00 PM time slot.
    
    The episode capsule summaries are based on the summaries in _TV Guide_;
    the (frequent) _TV Guide_ spelling errors have been corrected.

    Notes:
       TV Guide "Grapevine":  Letter Perfect
          True to her role as tyrannical high school principal Grace Musso
          on Fox's *Parker Lewis*, Melanie Chartoff answers her fan mail
          by correcting each letter, grading it, and sending it back.  "I
          get a lot of loving and affectionate letters," she says, "but I
          really do care about grammar and spelling."  Chartoff insists
          that most of her fans get the joke.  "I may have an obnoxious
          alter ego, but I really am a nice person."  Still, there's at
          least one scribe who may not have been amused.  "I get letters
          from teachers, too, and I've even had to correct some of those.
          I remember one that was so full of mistakes I wrote, 'Tsk, tsk,
          please resubmit' on it."
