Good Heavens - Failed 1976 Sitcom Does anyone remember this short-lived sitcom from the spring of 1976? Good Heavens starred Carl Reiner as Mr. Angel--a visitor from the hereafter who descends to earth to answer wishes and do good deeds for deserving people. Reiner was the show's only recurring character. Guest stars included Susan Dey, Florence Henderson, Penny Marshall, Alex Karras and Don Ameche. Only 13 episodes aired sporadically on ABC from February to June 1976. Here is the show's intro. Don't blink: It runs for a mere 17 seconds.

Fair Exchange - Failed Sitcom In September 1962 CBS unveiled something new--an hour-long sitcom titled Fair Exchange. Its premise was that an American family and a British family swapped teenage daughters for a year. Why? The two families' patriarchs had been Second World War flying buddies. The American daughter, Patty Walker, wanted to study in London, so the two families, in effect, arranged their own version of an exchange student program. (Judy Carne played the English teen, Heather Finch. It was her first American television role. Even though she played a teenager, Carne was 23 years old at the time.) The episodes generally focused on the difficulties each girl had adopting to the cultural differences of her new location. Filmed in both England and Hollywood, the 60-minute format proved too unwieldy and the show was canceled in December 1962. Three months later, after loyal fans put pressure on CBS, the network returned Fair Exchange to its schedule--but only in a revised half-hour format. Ratings did not merit the show continuing beyond one season, however. Fair Exchange was again cancelled before the 1963-64 TV season began after 27 episodes. Here is the opening montage for the 60-minute version.

Failed TV Series - East Side West Side In 1963 CBS introduced a bold new TV series that was way ahead of its time: East Side, West Side. It starred George C. Scott as Neil Brock, a New York City social worker whose job put him in the forefront with the seedy aspects of the big city. Topics included alcoholism, drug abuse, prostitution, race relations, and even statutory rape. Because of its controversial nature, some CBS affiliates chose not to air the hour-long show which was slotted at 10 p.m. on Mondays--right after The Andy Griffith Show. Predictably, East Side, West Side also had trouble getting sponsors. According to the reference book Total Television, "TV audiences in 1963 just weren't ready for a hard-hitting series focusing on social problems, especially one in which the problems remained unsolved at the hour's end." Only 26 episodes were made. By January 1964 CBS decided to ax East Side, West Side but aired the show occasionally until September of that year. Here is the opening montage for one episode.

Ernest Bognine-Ethel Merman Failed Marriage On June 27, 1964, 47-year-old Hollywood star Ernest Borgnine and 56-year-old stage star Ethel Merman were wed. However, within five weeks they had separated. Within five months they were divorced. What went so terribly wrong? According to an interview Borgnine gave late in his life, an overseas honeymoon was a disaster. Everyone recognized the Oscar-winning Hollywood actor, but few recognized Merman whose fame did not generally extend into Europe. Merman became upset by this and took out her anger on her new husband. The two began fighting...and that was the end of the couple's brief union. In Merman's autobiography she devoted a chapter to her marriage to Borgnine. It consisted of one blank page.

Howard Unruh - Camden NJ Mass Murderer On Tuesday, September 6, 1949, 28-year-old Howard Unruh shot and killed 13 people in Camden, NJ in a space of just 12 minutes. Three other victims suffered non-fatal wounds. The calm demeanor Unruh showed during shootings came to be known as "Camden's Walk of Death." Unruh, a decorated Second World War combat veteran, was a closet homosexual who believed he was the target of malicious gossip. The previous evening a date had failed to meet him at a local movie theater for a late-night screening. An angry Unruh stayed to watch the movie by himself and arrived home at about 3 a.m. to find that a fence he had erected between his house and his neighbor's adjacent lot to resolve a property dispute had been taken down, further aggravating him. Later that morning, Unruh suddenly snapped at his mother (whom he lived with) during breakfast. He chased her out of the house. At 9:20 a.m. Unruh proceeded on his murderous rampage through nearby businesses on River Road. With deadly accuracy, Unruh shot customers and proprietors randomly at a barber shop, a tailor shop, a shoe-repair shop and a pharmacy. Some luckless bystanders were gunned down in their cars while stopped at intersections. The youngest of Unruh's victims was just two years old. The toddler was killed as he looked out of an apartment window. When Unruh ran out of ammunition, he made his way back home and awaited his fate. Incredibly he spoke calmly, politely and amicably on the telephone to a local newspaper reporter while he awaited arrest. Unruh was shot in the leg by an armed citizen during his rampage but seemed oblivious to his wound. He was judged to be insane and thus not fit to stand trial under New Jersey law. He was held in a mental institution for more than 60 years before dying in 2009 at the age of 88. Hardly remorseful, in his last known interview Unruh said he would have happily killed thousands of people had he had the opportunity.
