Brady Bunch Hour The Brady Bunch Hour, a 1977 ABC variety program, lasted just six episodes before being yanked. It has been universally panned as one of the worst television shows ever. Here is five-and-a-half minutes of an episode that had Milton Berle, Tina Turner, and Rip Taylor as guest stars--and let's not forget Fake Jan! The quality of this clip isn't especially good, but you just have to watch it to believe it.

I guess to appreciate great TV shows you have to compare them to duds--and this show was truly a dud!

For me the highlight of this clip was Rip Talyor and Alice singing the 'glibby-glop-glibby' refrain (or whatever the heck it is) from Good Morning Starshine.

There's actually an interesting story about the origin of this disatrous program: At the time, ABC had a fairly successful variety program, Donny and Marie. The Brady Bunch had been cancelled in 1974. Almost immediately, though, it became hugely popular in reruns. Someone from ABC came up with the idea of having the Brady Bunch cast appear on Donnie and Marie as a curiosity. The ratings were terrific as fans wanted to see what they looked like two years after their last episode. Then the braintrust at ABC got the stupid idea of giving the Bradys their own Donnie-and-Marie-style variety show. It stunk to high heaven.

Wasn't Fred Silverman the head of programming at ABC at the time of this train wreck?

Yes, Eric. According to Barry William's book, Growing Up Brady, it was Fred Silverman who was largely responsible for foisting this turkey upon the public.

Eve Plumb made the smartest descision to to appear in that train wreck.
