Our TV Show of the Week is, The Brady Bunch

The Brady Bunch is an American sitcom created by Sherwood Schwartz and starring Robert Reed, Florence Henderson, and Ann B. Davis. The series revolved around a large blended family. The show originally aired from September 26, 1969, to March 8, 1974, on ABC and was subsequently syndicated internationally.

Mike Brady (Robert Reed), widowed architect with sons Greg (Barry Williams), Peter (Christopher Knight) and Bobby (Mike Lookinland), marries Carol Martin (née Tyler) (Florence Henderson), whose daughters are Marcia (Maureen McCormick), Jan (Eve Plumb) and Cindy (Susan Olsen). The wife and daughters take the Brady surname. Producer Schwartz wanted Carol to have been a divorcée but the network objected to this. A compromise was reached whereby no mention was made of the circumstances in which Carol's first marriage ended. The blended family, Mike's live-in housekeeper Alice (Ann B. Davis) and the boys' dog Tiger settle into a large, suburban, two-story house designed by Mike. Their specific location is not explicitly stated in the series, though numerous indications suggest they reside in Southern California.

The theme song penned by Schwartz quickly communicated to audiences that the Bradys were a blended family. In the first season this blending figured prominently in stories. These episodes chronicled the family learning to adjust to its new circumstances and become a unit, as well as typical childhood problems such as rivalries and family squabbles. Over time the episodes focused more on issues related to the kids growing up, such as dating, self-image, responsibility, and puberty.

From the second season the blending and its particular tensions were less intrinsic to stories but would sometimes be casually mentioned in dialogue, often as part of a joke. Two episodes from the third season, "Not So Rose Colored Glasses" and "Jan's Aunt Jenny", mention that Mike and Carol had been married for just three years. "Kelly's Kids" in the final season explicitly recalled Mike and Carol's adoptions ("Either way, you adopted three boys and you adopted three girls, right?") when their neighbors, the Kellys, adopted three boys of different races.

It was not the first series to show a "blended" family (two series which debuted in the 1950s, Make Room For Daddy and Bonanza, had stepsiblings and half-siblings respectively), but came at a time when divorce and remarriage in America was seeing a surge.

Contemporary issues were sometimes explored. Season two's "The Liberation of Marcia Brady" explored the equality of women, as Marcia sets out to prove a girl can do anything a boy can. The boys challenge the idea and coerce Peter into joining Marcia's club, the Sunflower Girls, to make a point.

Our TV Show of the week is; The Munsters
Below is a link for the official Munsters.com site.

www.munsters.com/

The Munsters is a 1960s American family television sitcom depicting the home life of a family of monsters. It starred Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster and Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster. The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies and popular family entertainment of the era, such as Leave It to Beaver.
The family, while decidedly odd, consider themselves fairly typical working-class Americans of the era. Herman, like many husbands of the 1960s, is the sole wage-earner in the family, though Lily and Grandpa make (short-lived) attempts to earn a little money from time to time. While Herman is the titular "head of household," Lily actually makes most of the decisions.
The series aired at night once a week in black-and-white on the CBS Television Network from September 24, 1964 to May 12, 1966, for 70 episodes.

"Rhoda" (1974) is our TV Show of the Week

Rhoda is an American television sitcom, starring Valerie Harper, which ran for five seasons, from 1974 to 1978 airing in 109 episodes. The show was a spin-off from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, in which Harper between the years 1970 and 1974 had played the role of Rhoda Morgenstern, a spunky, weight-conscious, flamboyantly-fashioned Jewish neighbor and native New Yorker in the role of Mary Richards' best friend. After four seasons, Rhoda left Minneapolis and returned to her original hometown of New York City.

Rhoda Morgenstern was born in the Bronx in December 1941. She's always felt responsible for World War II. She had a bad puberty. It lasted 17 years. She's a college graduate, she went to art school. Her entrance exam was on a book of matches. She decided to move out of the house at the age of 24. Her mother still refers to this as the time she ran away from home. Eventually, she ran to Minneapolis where it's colder, and she figured she'd keep better. Now she's back in Manhattan. New York, this is your last chance!

Our TV Show of the week is, The Electric Company.

The Electric Company is an educational American children's television series that was produced by the Children's Television Workshop (now called Sesame Workshop) for PBS in the United States. PBS broadcast 780 episodes over the course of its six seasons from October 25, 1971 to April 15, 1977. After it ceased production that year, the program continued in reruns from 1977 to 1985, the result of a decision made in 1975 to produce two final seasons for perpetual use. CTW produced the show at Teletape Studios Second Stage in Manhattan, the first home of Sesame Street.

The Electric Company employed sketch comedy and other devices to provide an entertaining program to help elementary school children develop their grammar and reading skills. It was intended for children who had graduated from CTW's flagship program, Sesame Street. Appropriately, the humor was more mature than what was seen there.

* I detested this show. My sister loved it and our middle sister and myself were subjected to The Electric Company and The Polka Dot Door, each night! We usually left to let her watch the show alone.

Our TV Show of the Week is, Charlies Angels
Aired: 1976 - 1981
Show Type: Live Action
Country of Origin: US

Once upon a time, Jill, Sabrina & Kelly were police officers whose skills were being wasted in menial duties such as filing and answering phones. A mysterious millionaire named Charles Townsend took them away from all that by opening his own private investigation agency, and hiring these gorgeous ladies as his operatives with John Bosley acting as their assistant and liaison. The "Angels" frequently went undercover as models, strippers or cocktail waitresses in their investigations. When Jill left the agency to pursue a career in auto racing(!), she was replaced by her sister Kris. Sabrina also departed to start a family, and she was replaced by debutante Tiffany, who was then replaced by street-smart New Yorker Julie.

Our TV Show of the Week is, The Newlywed Game.

The Newlywed Game debuted on the ABC television network on July 11, 1966. It was the last U.S. commercial network series to premiere in black and white, although it converted to color, as did virtually all other network series, that coming September. On the day it debuted, CBS pre-empted Password to cover a news conference held by Robert McNamara. ABC opted not to air the press conference, and as a result The Newlywed Game was able to get a slight head start in the head-to-head ratings battle with the long-running Password. Over the next few months more and more viewers were tuning into The Newlywed Game and it became a hit, while Password's ratings began to fall and eventually led to the series' cancellation fourteen months later. On December 20, 1974, The Newlywed Game concluded its run as the second-longest running game show on ABC. (Only Family Feud lasted longer on ABC)

Archie Bunker is our TV Show of the Week

Archibald "Archie" Bunker is a fictional New Yorker in the 1970s top-rated American television sitcom All in the Family and its spin-off Archie Bunker's Place. He is a veteran of World War II, reactionary, bigoted, conservative, blue-collar worker, and family man, played to acclaim by Carroll O'Connor. The Bunker character was first seen by the American public when All in the Family premiered in January 1971. In 1979, the show was retooled and re-named Archie Bunker’s Place, finally going off the air in 1983. Bunker lived in the borough of Queens in New York City. TV Guide named Archie the greatest television character of all time.

When first introduced on All in the Family in 1971, Archie was the head of a family consisting of his wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), his adult daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers), and his son-in-law, college student Michael "Mike" Stivic (Rob Reiner), (with whom Archie disagreed on virtually everything; he frequently characterized Mike as a "dumb Polack", and usually addressed him as "Meathead" because, in Archie's words, he was "dead from the neck up"). During the show's first five seasons, Mike and Gloria were living with Archie and Edith, so that Mike could put himself through college. (They later moved to their own home, though it turned out to be next door, allowing Archie and Mike to interact nearly as much as they had when they were living in the same house.)

Our Show of the week is The Flintstones.
51 years ago this month we met Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty!
The show is set in the Stone Age town of Bedrock. (In some of the earlier episodes, it was also referred to as "Rockville"). In this fantasy version of the past, dinosaurs, saber-toothed tigers, woolly mammoths, and other long-extinct animals co-exist with barefoot cavemen. Like their 20th-century peers, these cavemen listen to records, live in split-level homes, and eat out at restaurants, yet their technology is made entirely from pre-industrial materials and largely powered through the use of various animals. For example, the cars are made out of stone, wood, and animal skins, and powered by the passengers' feet. ("Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet" comprises part of the lyrics that many people have not been able to decipher over the decades that have passed when they listen to the theme song, for example.)

Our TV Show of the Week is; Love Boat

Series Description:
The Love Boat TV show was a 60 minute comedy series on ABC about various couples' romantic encounters aboard a luxury cruise ship and the crew's interactions with themselves and the passengers. Each week, well-known stars from other TV shows or movies would appear as guest stars.

Love Boat Broadcast History:
September 1977 through January 1978: Saturday Nights from 10:00 to 11:00 PM on ABC
January 1978 through May 1985: Saturday Nights from 9:00 to 10:00 on ABC
September 1985 to May 1986: Saturday Nights from 10:00 to 11:00 PM on ABC

Love Boat Cast:
Gavin MacLeod .......... Captain Merrill Stubing
Lauren Tewes ........... Julie McCoy (Cruise Director)
Bernie Kopell .......... Adam Bricker (Ship's Doctor)
Fred Grandy ............ Burl "Gopher" Smith (Purser)
Ted Lange .............. Isaac Washington (Bartender)
Jill Whelan ............ Vicki Stubing (Captain's Daughter)
Ted McGinley ........... Ashley "Ace" Covington Evans (Photographer)
Marion Ross ............ Emily Heywood (Captain's Love Interest / Wife)

Love Boat Trivia:
This series was based upon Jeraldine Saunders' novel titled, "The Love Boats". She wrote the book from her personal observations while serving as a hostess on a cruise ship.

The Love Boat was actually filmed on two ships. In addition to the "Pacific Princess", filming was also done on the "Island Princess" although that name was never used on the series.

Filming took place while on actual voyages ranging from the Virgin Islands to Alaska. Those cruises were always booked solid very far in advance! Passengers not only found it exciting to watch a TV show in production, they were also eligible to appear on the series as "extras"!

In order to maintain interest in the show, in 1981 the Love Boat travelled to Austrailia, in 1982 to the Mediternanean and to China in 1983!

A musical segment was also added in 1982 called the "Love Boat Follies" where the regular and guest cast would sing and sometimes dance.

More changes were made in the fall of 1985 in an attempt to stop the slowly worsening ratings. The theme song sung by Jack Jones was changed to a "hipper" version sung by Dionne Warwick. A group called the "Love Boat Mermaids" were added to perform a musical number each week. (One of them was Teri Hatcher ... Who would later star on "Lois and Clark" and "Desperate Housewives"). A casino was added to the ship. Airtime was also moved from 9:00 to 10:00 PM. Those changes didn't help. By the spring of 1986, a final attempt to save the show was made by giving Captain Stubing a love interest and eventually having him marry.

It was sad for hardcore viewers when the series ended in 1986 but that wasn't the last time we saw the crew of the Pacific Princess. In addition to a number of TV specials the following season and a TV reunion movie in 1990, they also got together on October 30, 1998 for Vicki's Wedding on episode #10 of "Love Boat: The Next Wave"! Julie and Doc were also pretty "Lovey-Dovey" on that episode. Only Fred Grandy did not appear. He had become a politician by that time and was trying diligently to lose his "Gopher" image!

Our Show of the Week, I Love Lucy

I Love Lucy is an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. The black-and-white series originally ran from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957 on the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS). When the original series ended, the show continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials, running from 1957 to 1960, known first as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour.

I Love Lucy was the most-watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched by The Andy Griffith Show and Seinfeld). I Love Lucy is still syndicated in dozens of languages across the world.

The show was the first scripted TV program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. In 2002, it ranked second on TV Guide's list of television's greatest shows, behind Seinfeld and ahead of The Honeymooners. In 2007 it was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME."

Flip Wilson is our TV Show of the Week. It ran from, 1970-1974.

Series Description:
The Flip Wilson Show was a 60 minute comedy series on NBC that featured comic Flip Wilson and his wonderful characters in comedy skits with well known guest stars.

Flip Wilson Show Cast:
Flip Wilson ................. Himself / Miscellaneous Characters
John Harlan ................. Himself / Announcer

Flip Wilson Show Trivia:
Flip Wilson was the first black person to star in his own immensely popular comedy/variety show! It reached #2 in the ratings for its first two years on the air! That's even more impressive when you consider that during the first season the hit CBS series, "Family Affair" was in the same time slot and during the second season ABC put "Alias Smith and Jones" up against the Flip Wilson Show!

John Harlan is among the most renowned announcers in show business. Besides the Flip Wilson Show, he also announced on "Password", "The Merv Griffin Show", "Jeopard", "American Gladiators", "Name That Tune", and many others!

After years of no interest in rerunning episodes of the Flip Wilson Show, Flip himself decided to buy the rights to his series from NBC in the 1990s. He brilliantly decided to edit them down to 30 minutes, making them more attractive for reruns. After several years of working on them, they finally were broadcast on TV Land.

Flip Wilson's popularity was due to the characters he performed. The most popular by far was a sassy female named Geraldine Jones who was a loud-mouthed women's libber with a boyfriend who was so jealous of her that his name was "Killer"! That character was undoubtedly the most successful "cross-dressing" role since that of Milton Berle! Flip also played Gospel Reverend Leroy of the Church of What's Happening Now, Herbie the Good Time Ice Cream Man, and Danny Danger: Private Detective.

When Flip's character, Geraldine, would get caught doing something that wasn't so nice she would say, "The Devil Made Me Do It!" That phrase became commonly used for several years due to its popularity on the show.

The Flip Wilson Show was obviously a blast for the guest stars who were lucky enough to be invited on the show. A few of them were Lucille Ball, Ray Charles, Tim Conway, Bill Cosby, Bobby Darin, Red Foxx, The Osmonds, and Don Rickles.

In memory of Peter Falk who died at the age of 83.
Our TV Show of the Week is Columbo
Series: 1971 - 2003

With his rumpled raincoat, ever-present cigar, bumbling demeanour and Sherlock Holmesian powers of deduction, disarmingly polite homicide detective Lieutenant Columbo took on some of the most cunning murderers in Los Angeles, most of whom made one fatal, irrevocable mistake: underestimating his investigative genius.

Our TV Show of the Week is; Quincy.

Quincy, M.E., also called Quincy, is a United States television series from Universal Studios that aired from October 3, 1976, to September 5, 1983, on NBC. It stars Jack Klugman in the title role, a Los Angeles County medical examiner.

The series starred Jack Klugman as Dr. Quincy, a strong-willed, very principled Medical Examiner (forensic pathologist) for the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, working to ascertain facts about and reasons for possible suspicious deaths. His colleagues, friends and wife all address him by his surname or the shortened "Quince".

In his investigations, Quincy frequently comes into conflict with his boss, Dr. Robert Asten (John S. Ragin), and the police, in particular, LAPD Homicide Lieutenant Frank Monahan (Garry Walberg). Each have their own (often flawed) ideas about what's going on and about Quincy's deductions. Quincy is assisted by his faithful lab assistant, Sam Fujiyama (Robert Ito).

It is revealed in the episode "The Last of Leadbottom" Quincy is a retired Captain in the US Navy and remains in the Naval Reserve. In the episode "Crib Job", Quincy notes he originally wanted to be a railroad engineer, after revealing a number of facts about the dangers of the occupation. A well-liked man, Quincy lives on a sailboat in Marina Del Rey, California and frequents "Danny's", a restaurant at the marina, owned by his friend Danny Tovo (Val Bisoglio).

Quincy is very popular with women. He was married once before but lost his wife Helen to cancer. In the Mystery Movie instalments and earliest "regular" episodes, Quincy has a regular girlfriend called Lee (Lynette Mettey) who sometimes accompanies him on his cases. This is his only steady relationship until near the end of the seventh season, when Quincy remarries Dr. Emily Hanover.

Our TV Show of the Week is M*A*S*H

The M*A*S*H TV show was a 30 minute comedy series on CBS about a unit of doctors and nurses who had been torn from their personal lives and thrown into a muddy, bug infested camp in the middle of the Korean war! Most of them didn't want to be there. Their careers had just been "taking off" after years of medical education and training and now their rewards were being denied them. But when they heard the "choppers" coming in with wounded soldiers, all that was forgotten. They became the only hope close enough to the fighting to help the injured. When their work was done, they could go back to their drinking and complaining and sometimes romance in an effort to forget their miserable plight. This TV series did the impossible. It somehow found a way to be a comedy with a very non-comical premise. Most of the comedy revolved around the "draftees" pulling practical jokes on the career military personnel.

M*A*S*H TV Show Cast:
Alan Alda .............. Captain "Hawkeye" Pierce
Wayne Rogers ........... Captain "Trapper" John McIntyre
Mike Farrell ........... Captain B. J. Hunnicutt
McLean Stevenson ....... Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake
Harry Morgan ........... Colonel Sherman T. Potter
Gary Burghoff .......... Corporal "Radar" O'Reilly
Loretta Swit ........... Major Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan
Jamie Farr ............. Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger
David Ogden Stiers ..... Major Charles Emerson Winchester III
William Christopher .... Father Francis Mulcahy

Our TV Show of the Week is; Laverne and Shirley

Laverne & Shirley (also known as "Laverne De Fazio & Shirley Feeney" in the first season) is an American television situation comedy that ran on ABC from January 26, 1976, to May 10, 1983. It starred Penny Marshall as Laverne De Fazio and Cindy Williams as Shirley Feeney, roommates who, as the series began, worked in a Milwaukee brewery known as Shotz Brewery.

The show was a spin-off from Happy Days, as the two lead characters were originally introduced on that show as acquaintances of Fonzie. Set in roughly the same time period as Happy Days, the Laverne & Shirley timeline started in approximately 1959, when the series began, through 1967, when the series ended.

Both shows were made by Paramount Television and are currently distributed by CBS Television Distribution (along with the rest of the Paramount TV library). Laverne & Shirley filmed on stage 20 and Happy Days on stage 19.

Our TV Show of the Week is; All In the Family
1968 - 1979
Storyline
Archie Bunker, was a working-class family man who held bigoted, conservative views of the world. His viewpoints clash with nearly everyone he comes into contact with especially his liberal son-in-law Mike Stivic (or, as Archie delights in calling him, "Meathead").

A particularly marking episode, that produced the longest sustained audience laughter in the history of the show, is the famous episode-ending scene in which the guest star Sammy Davis, Jr. played himself. Archie is moonlighting as a cabdriver. Davis leaves a briefcase behind in his taxi and goes to the Bunker home to pick it up. After hearing Archie's racist remarks, Davis asks for a photograph with him. At the moment the picture is taken, Davis suddenly kisses a stunned Archie on the cheek. The ensuing laughter went on for so long that it had to be severely edited for network broadcast, as Carroll O'Connor still had one line ("Well, what the hell — he said it was in his contract!") to deliver after the kiss. (The line is usually cut in syndication.)

This Youtube link is the show described above.

Our TV Show of the Week is; Sesame Street

Sesame Street is a children's television program known for its combination of Jim Henson's Muppets, animation, short films, humor, and cultural references. It premiered on public broadcasting television stations on November 10, 1969, in the United States to positive reviews, some controversy, and high ratings. It was the first preschool educational television program to base its contents and production values on laboratory and formative research, and the first to include a curriculum "detailed or stated in terms of measurable outcomes."

When Sesame Street premiered in 1969, it aired on only 67.6% of American televisions, but it earned a 3.3 Nielsen rating, or 1.9 million households. By the shows tenth anniversary in 1979, 9 million American children under the age of six were watching Sesame Street daily.

The young executive of an advertisement agency, Darrin Stephens marries a beautiful woman, Samantha Stephens. On their honeymoon, Sam discloses a secret to him: she is a witch with magic powers. He makes her promise him that she will live like a mortal, without using witchcraft and spells in their lives, but sometimes she uses her magic to help Darrin and herself. Sam's mother, Endora does not accept her mortal son-in-law, hates him and can hardly say his name correctly. In the suburb of Morning Glory Circle, where they live, their curious next-door neighbor Gladys Kravitz suspect Samantha, but can never prove the weird situations she sees to her husband Abner Kravitz. Darrin works in the McMahon and Tate ad agency with Larry Tate, who is married to Louise Tate. Samantha frequently receives her witch aunts in her house, specially her sweet old Aunt Clara.

I love this show, it makes me feel so nostalgic!

Our TV Show of the Week is: Eight Is Enough

Series Description:
The Eight is Enough TV show was a 60 minute family drama series on ABC about a middle class man who lost his wife but still had to deal with raising eight children in Sacramento, California. He met a school teacher who fell in love with him and his house full of kids so they married. Of course, there would be some resentment of the new mom but she remained strong and was "there for" the children so they soon came to love her too.

Eight is Enough Cast:
Dick Van Patten ......... Tom Bradford
Betty Buckley ........... Sandra Sue "Abby" Abbott
Adam Rich ............... Nicholas Bradford
Willie Aames ............ Tommy Bradford
Connie Needham .......... Elizabeth Bradford
Dianne Kay .............. Nancy Bradford
Susan Richardson ........ Susan Bradford Stockwell
Laurie Walters .......... Joannie Bradford
Lani O'Grady ............ Mary Bradford
Grant Goodeve ........... David Bradford
Joan Prather ............ Janet Bradford
Diana Hyland ............ Joan Bradford (1st 4 episodes)

Eight is Enough Trivia:
The idea for the Eight Is Enought TV show was from a autobiography about the life of Thomas Braden, also titled, "Eight Is Enough". All of the characters' first names on the show are the same as Thomas' family's real first names! He was a newspaper columnist, editor, and one time host on CNN's "Crossfire" program. Thomas' wife, in addition to mothering eight children, was a magazine writer, television interviewer, public relation executive, and even served as an aide to President John F. Kennedy!

Diana Hyland who originally played Tom Bradford's wife, Joan Bradford, died from breast cancer after filming only the first 4 episodes. Four more episodes were produced where her disappearance was explained simply by saying that she was "away". Then, when Eight Is Enough returned in the fall, the storyline changed with Tom Bradford being a widower whose wife had died approximately a year earlier.

In episode #11, "Trial Marriage", Betty Buckley (Abby) appeared for the first time as a guest star in the role of a tutor who helped Tommy with his schoolwork after he broke a foot and couldn't attend classes. By episodes 17 and 18, "Childrend of the Groom - Parts 1 & 2", the attraction has been made, love has bloomed, a wedding has been planned, and the marriage takes place. Pretty fast work, huh? Producers wanted a fast transition back to the original storyline of a married couple raising "their" eight children.

Tom's new wife Abby had lost her first husband in the Vietnam war.

Eight is Enough's theme song with lyrics (see below) didn't actually appear until the third season. For the first two seasons, the series simply had music for its theme. By the way, note that the singer of the theme lyrics was Grant Goodeve who played David Bradford on the show.

Mark Hamill actually played the role of David Bradford in the Eight is Enough pilot and then went on to a busy movie career, appearing as Luke Skywalker in the first Star Wars movie which came to theaters the same year as Eight is Enough debuted.

When Mary Bradford attended medical school, she did so at the University of California at Berkely.

Tom Bradford got 33rd place in the June 20, 2004 issue of TV Guide magazine in their list titled, "The 50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time"!

Theme Song Lyrics
Title: "Eight is Enough"
Written By: "Lee Holdridge and Ann Leiken"
Performed By: "Grant Goodeve"
Oh we spend our days like bright and shiny new dimes.
If we're ever puzzled by the changing times.
There's a plate of homemade wishes on the kitchen window sill,
And eight is enought to fill our lives with love.

Enjoyed watching the clip on TV Theme Songs thread, but don't remember the show at all! Either another American show that wasn't aired in the UK or I didn't watch much tv back in the day!

The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour is our TV Show of the Week

The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour came about as the famous musical duo’s career was beginning to wane. Their new singles were not doing well on the charts, and Cher’s first film, Chastity, was a commercial failure. Sonny and Cher thus decided to go on a night club tour across the United States wherein they would perform music and tell jokes. When Fred Silverman of CBS happened to catch their show one evening, he offered the pair their own television show on his network.

Initially, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour was only meant to be a summer series. But the show did unexpectedly well in terms of ratings, and it was eventually given a permanent position on the CBS viewing schedule. The show was filmed in Hollywood at Television City.

For the length of its run, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour remained in the Top 20. Oftentimes, Sonny and Cher would team up for a duet of their hit number, “I Got You Babe,” sometimes with their daughter Chastity singing along.

Our Show of the week is; All In the Family

Aired: 1971 - 1979
Show Type: Live Action
Country of Origin: US

All in the Family is an American situation comedy that was originally broadcast on the CBS television network from January 12, 1971 to April 8, 1979. In September 1979, the show was revamped, and given a new title, Archie Bunker's Place. This version of the sitcom lasted another four years, ending its run in 1983.

Produced by Norman Lear, it was based on the British television comedy series Till Death Us Do Part. The show broke ground in its depiction of issues previously considered unsuitable for U.S. network television comedy, such as racism, homosexuality, women's liberation, rape, miscarriage, abortion, breast cancer, the Vietnam War, menopause and impotence.

The show ranked #1 in the yearly Nielsen ratings from 1971 to 1976. As of 2010 it has, along with The Cosby Show and American Idol, been one of only three shows to top the ratings for at least five consecutive seasons. American Idol ranks first, having ranked #1 for six consecutive seasons. TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time ranked All in the Family as #4. Bravo also named the show's protagonist, Archie Bunker, TV's greatest character of all time.

Did this family remind you of your family?

The series was a ratings success (even beating its parent show) and was also the winner of two Golden Globes and two Emmy Awards.

Our TV show of the week is Charlie's Angels!

Charlie's Angels is a television series about three women who work for a private investigation agency, and is one of the first shows to showcase women in roles traditionally reserved for men. The series was broadcast in the USA on the ABC Television Network from 1976 to 1981 and was one of the most successful series of the 1970s. Charlie's Angels was created by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts and produced by Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg. In pre-production, the original proposed title was The Alley Cats, with the idea being that the show would be a vehicle for up-and-coming actress Kate Jackson, who had proven very popular with viewers in another police drama, The Rookies. Jackson is also the one who came up with the new title for the series upon seeing a painting of three angels on Aaron Spelling's office wall. But Harry's Angels was written off so as not to conflict with another television series, Harry O. Kate Jackson was initially cast as Kelly, but the actress was more attracted to the role of Sabrina, and her request to switch roles was granted; thus, the early part of the pilot relies very heavily on Jaclyn Smith, as the casting change had been made too late in the day to make a further rewrite.

Original run September 22, 1976 (1976-09-22) – June 24, 1981 (1981-06-24)

Our tv show of the week is The Pink Panther Show!

The Pink Panther Show was a showcase of cartoon shorts produced by David H. DePatie and Friz Freleng between 1969 and 1979. The television series was produced by Mirisch Films and DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, and was broadcast on several American networks.
Each 30-minute show included bumper sequences featuring the Pink Panther and the Inspector together, as well announcer Marvin Miller acting as an off-camera narrator talking to the panther. Bumper sequences consisted of newly animated segments as well as recycled footage from existing cartoons (Reel Pink, Pink Outs, Super Pink) with new incidental music and voice-over work from Miller. Over the years, additional bumpers were produced to include newer characters like the Ant and the Aardvark, Tijuana Toads and Misterjaw.

Our tv show of the week is CHiPs!

CHiPs was a lightweight action crime drama, which included elements of comedy in every episode (several of the first season episodes play as out-and-out comedies). Over-the-top freeway pileups, which occurred in almost every episode, were a signature of the show. There was little if any actual violence on CHiPs, and the show can be classified as a dramedy. The episodes filled a standard hour-long time slot, which at the time required 48 minutes of actual programming.

The show was created by Rick Rosner, and starred Erik Estrada as macho, rambunctious Officer Francis ("Frank") "Ponch" Poncherello and Larry Wilcox as his straight-laced partner, Officer Jonathan "Jon" Baker. With Ponch the more trouble-prone of the pair, and Jon generally the more level-headed one trying to keep him out of trouble with the duo's gruff yet fatherly commanding officer Sergeant Joseph Getraer (Robert Pine), the two were Highway Patrolmen of the Central Los Angeles office of the California Highway Patrol (CHP, hence the name CHiPs).

As real-life CHP motor officers rarely ride in pairs, in early episodes this was explained away by placing the trouble-prone Ponch on probationary status, with Jon assigned as his field training officer. Eventually, by the end of the first season, this subplot faded away (Ponch completed his probation) as audiences were used to seeing the two working as a team
