Real People - NBC Show Here's the intrduction from a 1980 episode of Real People--a popular NBC anthology show that ran for five years. Originally designed as a 'short-flight series' in the spring of 1979, it drew surprisingly strong ratings. Naturally NBC made it a regular prime-time show. Real People featured offbeat news stories and the exploits of eccentric folks shown to a live studio audience. The show had an overabundance of hosts. Among the regular hosts were Sarah Purcell, Byron Allen, John Barbour and Skip Stephenson. Real People finshed a strong 12th in overall TV ratings for the 1980-81 season. Its success spawned the very similar That's Incredible! on ABC. Here's a little-known fact: Richard Simmons was first widely exposed to American TV audiences on Real People.

TV Flop - Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show Despite Chuck Barris and NBC constantly clashing over the content of The Gong Show, the network was desperate for any prime-time hit in the late 1970s. Therefore, in early 1978, the zany Barris was permitted to create and host The Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show--an hour-long variety program that featured guest appearances by celebrities and encore performances by some of the more memorable oddball acts from The Gong Show. Few people saw it as it was scheduled on Tuesdays from 8 to 9 p.m--directly against the two most popular TV shows in America at the time: Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. It was cancelled in April after eight episodes had aired. Noel Holsten, the Orlando Sentinel-Star's TV critic, wrote, "[Barris] reeled around the stage as though he'd been gobbling hallucinogenic mushrooms and looking somewhat like a subterranean fungus." Barris accepted Holsten's bad review with cheerfulness: He read it during an episode of The Gong Show. (The Gong Show was booted off NBC in June.) Here's a brief promo for the February 28 premiere episode of the Rah-Rah Show.

Ian Turnbull - 5 Goals on 5 shots On February 2, 1977 Ian Turnbull, a 23-year-old defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs, set two NHL records that still stand: He scored five goals on five shots in Toronto's 9-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings at Maple Leaf Gardens. No defenceman has equalled the feat and no other NHL player, regardless of his position, has ever scored five goals on five shots. Turnbull scored 22 goals the entire season. Here's his fifth goal--a beauty.

The Rutles Piggy In The Middle Many considered the Rutles' Tragical History Tour more tragic than historical. When it was broadcast on the CBC on April 1st, 1968, it was even shown upside-down. People didn't know what to make of it. I realize now that what the Rutles were saying is that we ourselves should be upside-down when we were watching it. Then it would all make sense. Hundreds of young people all over the world joined me in doing just that. We were all part of something special. In retrospect I think it was all about the peace movement. It's hard to fight when you're upside-down. Mind you, the movie still didn't make sense, but the music was amazing.

This Week in Baseball - 1979 Beginning in 1977, This Week in Baseball was a 30-minute syndicated highlight show packaged by Major League Baseball. It ususally aired on stations that had the rights to broadcast MLB games. In its glory years, Mel Allen was the narrator (as he was in this brief clip from an August 1979 episode). With the establishment of ESPN and nightly sports highlight shows, TWIB gradually lost its importance. Over time TWIB changed from a general highlights show to mainly fluff pieces that focused on specific teams or players. To many fans, Mel Allen's death in 1996 was a clear milestone that marked the show's slow, irretrievable decline. It was cancelled in 2012.

Frank Bank aka Lumpy Rutherford Dies Fans of the classic sitcom Leave it to Beaver will be saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Bank, one day after his 71st birthday, on April 13, 2013. Bank played the not-too-bright Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford. In the show's first season Lumpy was an oversized bully who terrorized both Wally and Beaver. Later Lumpy became the inseparable friend of Wally and Eddie Haskell. After Leave it to Beaver went off the air in 1963, Bank went on to become a successful stockbroker. At one point he was a business partner of Jerry Mathers who played Beaver Cleaver.

Dave Hodge Pen-Flipping Incident March 14, 1987 proved to be the final day that Canadian boadcaster Dave Hodge was associated with CBC's Hockey Night In Canada broadcasts. Earlier that same day, CBC had cut away from a crucial match at the Brier (the national men's curling championship--an important event on the sports calendar in Canada) in favor of news programming, irking many Canadians. Later that night on HNIC, CBC did it again--refusing to show the five-minute overtime period between Montreal and Philadelphia to the national audience because it would have preempted the news. As is evident in this clip, Hodge famously couldn't contain his disgust with the network that had employed him for 16 years.

Pat Summerall 1930-2013 Pat Summerall, one of the great voices in sports broadcasting, died on April 16, 2013. He would have turned 83 on May 10. A former NFL placekicker, Summerall started broadcasting football for CBS in 1964 and became a play-by-play man in 1974. He is best remembered for his calm, restrained manner in contrast to his excitable longtime booth partner John Madden. Summerall was also a fixture at CBS' coverage of The Masters golf tourney and the U.S. Open Tennis Championships for many years. Once CBS lost its NFL contract in 1993, Summerall and Madden joined Fox's NFL coverage. Sadly, CBS would no longer allow Summerall to cover golf or tennis despite being with the network for nearly 40 years.
