22 Year Old Doris Day Doris was a well known singer by the time she was 22, but her film career did not begin until two years later. She was approached about a movie role in 1948 after she sang at a private party at the home of composer Jule Styne who recommended her for a role in ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS. After a failed first marriage, she had intended to give up show business altogether and return to life with her family in Ohio . . .

Mrs Columbo Opening The NBC 60-minute mystery show Mrs. Columbo lasted less than one year. It premiered on February 26, 1979 and last aired on December 6, 1979. It has a special place in TV history for having four different titles! It went from Mrs. Columbo to Kate Columbo to Kate The Detective and finally Kate Loves A Mystery. The premise was that Kate (played by Kate Mulgrew) was supposed to be the wife of Peter Falk's famed Columbo character. In his show, his wife was never seen. In Kate's show, he was never seen. Regardless of the premise or the title changes, the show failed to attract a following. Maybe a better title might have been 'Viewers Hate Kate.'

Cleveland Barons Here's a sports trivia question to stump your friends: What was the last team in the four major professional sports leagues to fold? Answer: The National Hockey League's Cleveland Barons. The Barons began as the Oakland Seals in 1967. The Seals moved from California to Cleveland in 1976 after nine unsuccessful seasons on the west coast. In Ohio they failed to attract a following in two more unsuccessful seasons. The NHL allowed the Barons to merge with the financially strapped Minnesota North Stars for the 1978-79 season. The Cleveland Barons thus became the first NHL team to fold since 1942.

Seattle Pilots The Seattle Pilots were an American League baseball club that lasted just one season--1969. This is the official team logo. The Pilots began play the same year as the Kansas City Royals, the San Diego Padres, and the Montreal Expos. The Pilots' owners were granted a team because they assured Major League Baseball a domed stadium would be built in Seattle within two years. That didn't happen. Instead they played at an antiquated minor league park called Sick's Stadium. The venue was so shoddy that seats were still being renovated on Opening Day. Visiting teams hated playing in Seattle because the ballpark's plumbing was horribly inadequate, forcing them to shower at their hotel. The stadium's toilets often failed when more than 10,000 people came to games. (That seldom happened; the Pilots drew just 677,944 fans for their 74 home dates. Still, the Pilots outdrew four other MLB clubs in 1969.) The team alienated potential supporters by having no local TV deal and charging as much as (gasp!) $6 per ticket--the highest price in MLB at the time. After finishing in last place in the American League West with a 64-98 record, and incurring losses of about $250,000, the team uprooted and moved to Milwaukee in 1970 and became the Brewers. Oddly enough, there is more interest in the Pilots now than when they were around. Mainly it is because of pitcher Jim Bouton's irreverent book, Ball Four.

Stuart Pearce Redemption PK It is virtually unknown in the United States, but this is one of the great redemption moments in all sports: Stuart Pearce's penalty kick at Euro '96. At the 1990 World Cup tournament in Italy, England lost their semifinal versus West Germany when Pearce failed to score in a penalty shootout. Six years later, when England hosted Euro '96, the England-Spain quarterfinal went to a penalty shootout. Despite the baggage from his 1990 failure, Pearce bravely volunteered to take one of England's penalty kicks. His reaction upon scoring ran the gamut of emotions.

Alls Fair - Forgotten Sitcom According to the critics, All's Fair, a Norman Lear sitcom, was the can't-miss new offering for the 1976-77 TV season. Nevertheless, it missed. Set in Washington, D.C., All's Fair centered around a 49-year-old conservative newspaper columnist Richard Barrington (Richard Crenna) and his romance with a 23-year-old liberal photographer Charlotte Drake (Bernadette Peters). With so many differences between Barrington and Drake, the main characters spent a great deal of time shouting at one another (leading one critic to call it a "high-decibel comedy"). All's Fair premiered on CBS on September 20, 1976 and got generally favorable reviews. Peters was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role. The public never took a liking to All's Fair, though. It was off the air by the end of April 1977 after just 24 episodes.

Nancy - Failed Sitcom 1970 This is the opening montage to Nancy, a short-lived sitcom that ran on NBC from September 17, 1970 to January 7, 1971. Here's how Total Television describes it: "Insipid sitcom about the daughter of the President of the United States, who, while vacationing in Iowa, met and married a veterinarian." Renne Jarrett played Nancy Smith. John Fink played Adam Hudson, the vet. Celeste Holm played Abby Townsend, the President's wife's press secretary who also served as Nancy's official chaperone. Despite being featured on a TV Guide cover, Nancy never caught the viewers' fancy. It was yanked after 17 episodes.

Norby - Failed Color Sitcom 1955 Here is the opening montage for the short-lived sitcom Norby, starring David Wayne. It was a rare color sitcom from 1955--a time when very few American households had color televisions. Sponsored by Eastman Kodak who provided the color film, Norby was a family sitcom that followed the life of Pearson Norby (David Wayne), the vice-president of First National Bank in Pearl River, NY. Joan Lorring played Pearson's wife Helen. Susan Hallaran played daughter Diane. Evan Elliott played son Hank. Norby aired Wednesdays at 7 p.m.--a peculiar time slot that many NBC affiliates still reserved for local programming. It debuted on January 5, 1955. The thirteenth and final episode aired on April 6, 1955.
