What show came on AFTER Arliss on HBO?

There was a show on HBO that came on AFTER Arliss that I remember loving. I've been trying to figure out what this show was by searching the internet and asking around to see if anyone else remembers it. I remember it was a comedy, but I don't remember the name or anything about it!

It wasn't:
Sherman Oaks
Mr. Show (although it kicked ass)
Larry Sanders

It was a show, when Arliss was in original production, that came on right after. I remember sitting through Arliss bored to watch this show. What the hell was it?!?!?!?!? Does anyone remember the HBO schedule or have any idea what I'm talking about? Thanks.

Dream On ?

It was Dream on. Curtm got it.

They'd flash between reality and old tv that expressed someone's emotions.

More links from the IMDB about Dream On.

Two suggestions: you could go to a library and look at a newspaper's TV listings from then, or you could write to HBO and ask them.

It can't be Dream On, because the last episode of that aired a few months before the first episode of Arliss.

I just combed through Epguides.com, and the only shows I found that aired on HBO on the same nights as Arliss were Sex and the City (from 1998-2002), Six Feet Under (for one season in 2001), and The Wire (for one season in 2002).

Epguides.com doesn't tell me what times these shows aired, but I found this article from 2001 that suggests that Arliss was on at 9:30, followed by Six Feet Under at 10:00.

You can search IMDB for tv series. And you can search for series which are distributed by HBO. There are less than 120 results. I wonder if there's some difference between what's broadcast by HBO and what's distributed by HBO. I think that "distributed" includes all things broadcast and maybe some more but I'm not sure. If that's the case, the only other question is the comprehensiveness of IMDB.

Was it Tracy Takes On starring Tracy Ullman? If not, here's a list of HBO shows from Wikipedia. Maybe it will jog your memory.
