It's been 25 years since David Hasselhoff and company began running the beaches of Los Angeles County in red swimsuits.

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the premiere of "Baywatch" in 1989.

While the show was canceled after one season when it placed 73rd out of 103 shows in seasonal ratings, it was revived and would go on to be one of the most popular television shows in the world. 

It lasted 11 seasons and spawned several spin-offs, including "Baywatch Nights," and the reunion movie "Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding." From 1999 to 2001, the show was filmed in Hawaii and the show changed its name to "Baywatch Hawaii."

Aside from Hasselhoff, the show has launched the careers for some actors and actresses, while the show was the Hollywood highlight for others.
