Cybill Trivia:

Among numerous other awards, Cybill won two Golden Globes in 1996. One was for Cybill Shepherd in the "Best Performance by an Actress in a TV-Series - Comedy/Musical" category. The second Golden Globe was for "Best TV-Series - Comedy/Musical". To win her award, Cybill Shepherd had to beat fellow nominees Candice Bergen ("Murphy Brown"), Ellen DeGeneres ("Ellen"), Helen Hunt ("Mad About You"), and Fran Dresher ("The Nanny"). Cybill's Golden Globe for best series beat out "Frasier", "Friends", "Mad About You", and "Seinfeld".

Before entering show business, Cybill Shepherd was a beauty contest winner and a model. In 1966 she won the "Miss Teenage Memphis" title and in 1968 she won the "Model of the Year" award. A few years later, in the early 1970s, movie director Peter Bogdanovich saw her on the cover of Glamour magazine while waiting to check out his groceries in a supermarket. That led to starring movie roles for Cybill but, unfortunately, they were all flops at the box office. Then Ms. Shepherd got a starring role on the small screen on the TV series, "The Yellow Rose". That series only lasted 22 episodes but nobody blamed that on Cybill and she immediately landed one of the two lead roles as "Maddie Hayes" on the series, "Moonlighting". That series established Cybill as a successful actress and introduced a future megastar "Bruce Willis" as "David Addison". Cybill is still a star as of 2008 and most recently has moved more into theatrical films. She has also joined the cast of the Showtime hit series, "The L Word" for its fourth and fifth seasons so far!

The final episode of Cybill titled, "Kaboom!" was actually supposed to be part one of a two part episode. CBS decided, on very short notice, to cancel the series and, for some reason, didn't ever air part two of "Kaboom!". Cybill Shepherd has stated that she believed that CBS didn't like the strong (perhaps radical) feminist storylines. She also said that there was a lot of tension between the cast and crew and CBS was fed up with that too. So even though Cybill was still performing well in the ratings and the critics loved the show, it went off to TV show heaven at the end of the fourth season.

Sally Kellerman ("M*A*S*H*") auditioned for the role of Mary Ann.
