Friday Assortment

Friday, April 05, 2013

Mark and Diane had just brought their new baby girl home from the hospital. It wasn’t long before the baby needed a diaper change, and Diane suggested that Mark take care of it.
“I’m busy,” he said. “I promise I’ll do the next one.”
The next time came around soon, and Diane again asked Mark to change the baby’s diaper. Mark looked at Diane and said, innocently, “I didn’t mean the next diaper—I meant the next baby.”

Tommy Cooper was a British comedian well known for performances that would often go intentionally awry. During an April 1984 appearance on the variety show Live from Her Majesty’s, he collapsed onstage as millions of British viewers watched at home. Everyone in the theater that night thought it was a gag (he’d done that bit before). The live audience continued laughing, completely oblivious to what was going on—Cooper, 63, was having a massive heart attack as he keeled over backward behind the red stage curtain. On the other side, his manager struggled to pull him backstage while the show’s director frantically cut to a commercial. Cooper was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

Wednesday Assortment

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

A defense attorney was cross-examining the coroner and asked, “Before you signed the victim’s death certificate, did you take his pulse?”
“No,” the coroner answered.
“Did you check to see if he was still breathing?”
“No.”
“So you didn’t take any steps to make sure the man was actually dead?”
The coroner, tired of this line of questioning, said, “Well, the man’s brain was sitting in a jar on my desk … but for all I know, he could be out there practicing law somewhere.”

THE SHOW MUST GO ON

The saga of The Doris Day Show

SEASON 1 (1968–69): Day played a widowed mother of two boys who lived on a northern California ranch with her father and a ranch hand.

SEASON 2 (1969–70): CBS didn’t think the show was working, so it remade The Doris Day Show into a workplace sitcom: Day commuted into San Francisco to be a secretary for a magazine. Day’s family was still mentioned and seen, but rarely.

SEASON 3 (1970–71): Day’s character and her sons moved into a San Francisco apartment.

SEASON 4 (1971–72): In an effort to make The Doris Day Show more like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Day’s character was now alone in San Francisco (the boys were never seen again) and Day was promoted to staff writer at the magazine. The final changes lasted two years before the show was finally canceled in 1973.

(Wow-imagine if the networks would put that much effort into some of today's shows instead of airing them once and cancelling them!)

Brian Poole & the Tremeloes, in 1962. Decca’s decision reportedly was based on location—the Tremeloes were from the London area, making them more accessible than the Liverpool-based Beatles.

THE SCIENCE OF TV

How remote controls work

When viewers push a button on their remote, it releases a specific digital pattern (or code) of infrared waves, which the television interprets as an instruction. They’re called “infrared” waves because they have a slightly lower frequency than red light, the lowest frequency of visible light. But they have a higher frequency than radio waves, so they can’t penetrate walls. Infrared remote controls also use cheap and readily available transistor technology, and since they don’t have mechanical components, they can be small and thin. In 1980, electrical engineer Paul Hrivnak formed Viewstar to manufacture infrared remotes. They cost about $100, but in five years, Viewstar had sold a million of them. By 1990, infrared technology dominated the remote market. The device now comes with radios, computers, CD players, MP3 players, as well as TV sets, and is considered a household necessity.

Mrs. Brown: What are you cooking?
Mrs. Jones: This is my secret recipe for the very best dinner in town.
Mrs. Brown: But it looks like you’re burning everything!

What fast-food chain placed full-page ads in six major U.S. newspapers announcing it had purchased the Liberty Bell to help cut the national debt?

Taco Bell, in 1996. Its ad said the national symbol would henceforth be known as the Taco Liberty Bell. At noon on the day the ad appeared, the company disclosed that it was just an April Fools’ Day joke.

A SHOW IS BORN

Modern Family (2009–)

Writer-producers Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan were brainstorming new ideas in 2008 after the failure of their latest show, the comedy Back to You. None of their ideas were working, so they kept getting off topic, telling funny stories about their home lives—and realized that their own families were more entertaining than any of their show ideas. Lloyd and Levitan wrote My American Family, until Lloyd realized, “There is no single modern family that represents the American family.” So they created three families, all related: one nuclear family; one with an older divorcé, his younger wife, and his stepson; and a gay couple who adopt a baby. The premise: a mockumentary filmed by an unseen filmmaker. They renamed the series Modern Family. It was a breakout hit for ABC in 2009 and took home the Emmy for Best Comedy Series in its first two seasons.
