Back in the mid nineties there was this great and sadly short lived show that aired on NBC called The Nightmare Cafe. Produced by Wes Craven, it starred Robert Englund (Blackie), Jack Coleman (Frank) and Lindsay Frost (Faye), and combined the feel of an anthology series like the Twilight Zone with a drama's fixed cast.
It only lasted 5 or 6 episodes, thanks to a late Friday night timeslot, but you can watch the first episode on YouTube.
In this download, the poster didn't get the first few seconds of Robert Englund's intro, which is "Touch that remote and you die."
