The assets and liabilities of two new Wall Street dramas

Tuesday, August 15, 2000

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

"Bull"

Network: TNT.

Premieres: 8 tonight, repeating at 9 and 10 p.m.

Pedigree: Executive producer Michael S. Chernuchin ("Law & Order," "Brooklyn South").

Leaders: Ditto (George Newbern) uses his connections to escape from the questionable ethics of his grandfather's firm.

Rookie: Fresh-faced flunky Carson Boyd (Christopher Wiehl) gets sent to unemployment for making phone calls to the firm's traitors.

Shark: The Kaiser (Donald Moffat), who preaches the virtues of money.

Big Deals: The young turks revolt, forsaking the safety of the Kaiser for their own firm.

My bond rating: BBB

A real investment banker's opinion: "It was pretty good," said Doug Owen, a 23-year-old investment banking analyst in Charlotte, N.C., after watching both new series (and yes, he's my brother). "It had characters I could like and be interested in. It has potential."

Worth investing? "I'm bullish about 'Bull,' " Doug Owen said.

"The $treet"

Network: Fox.

Premieres: 9 p.m. Nov. 1.

Pedigree: Executive producer Darren Star ("Melrose Place," "Sex and the City").

Leaders: Jack Kenderson (Tom Everett Scott) uses his connections to escape from the questionable ethics of his fiancee (she cheated on him).

Rookie: Fresh-faced flunky Tim Sherman (Christian Campbell, Neve's brother) gets sent to Brooklyn to buy bagels.

Shark: Freddie (Rick Hoffman), who preaches the virtues of not holding doors open for women.

Big Deals: The young turks make money on the revolting ivygene.com, a Web site that auctions off the semen and eggs of Ivy League grads.

My bond rating: CCC

A real investment banker's opinion: "It was terrible," Doug Owen said. "There's nobody I would care about. They managed to throw every stereotype and cliche possible into one episode."

Worth investing? "I would short 'The Street,' " Doug Owen said, "meaning I'd expect its value to go down."
