Caluccis Department - Failed Sitcom The premise for the 1973 CBS sitcom Calucci's Department seemed promising: James Coco starred as Joe Calucci, a supervisor of a state unemployment office in New York City. According to Total Television, Calucci "tried to manage a motley crew of nincompoops and deadbeats." Calucci also had a romantic interest with his secretary, Shirley Balukis, played by Candy Azzara. Unfortunately, Calucci's Department was slotted on Fridays at 8 p.m. This placed it directly against NBC's very popular Sanford and Son, so it had trouble establishing an audience. Calucci's Department was axed after just 11 episodes despite garnering generally favorable reviews. Here's part of the opening montage.

Jeremy Gelbwaks - Original Chris Partridge The Partridge Family was an ABC musical sitcom that ran for four seasons from 1970 to 1974. The show's premise was that recently widowed mother Shirley Partridge and her five children decide to form a pop group to make ends meet and earn money for the children's college funds. The show was loosely based on the real family musical group The Cowsills. In the show's first season Chris Partridge, the drummer and youngest son, was played by Jeremy Gelbwaks. (He seldom had more than two lines in an episode. In fact, in the last episode Gelbwaks appeared in, he had no lines whatsoever.) After the 1970-71 season Gelbwaks was replaced in the cast by Brian Forster. The reason why the change was made varies depending upon whom you ask. Gelbwaks' father was a federal government employee whose job forced him to relocate from California to Virginia just as the show's first season was concluding. The move made it difficult for Jeremy to continue his role as Chris Partridge. However, stories persist that Gelbwaks was a hellion on the set and the show's producers wanted to get rid of him. Danny Bonaduce (who played middle son Danny Partridge--and was admittedly no angel himself) once stated in an interview that Gelbwaks was "psychotic." David Cassidy (who played oldest son and teen heartthrob Keith Partridge) apparently couldn't stand Gelbwaks' on-set antics--which included kicking other cast members just before the director called "Action!" Whether Gelbwaks left on his own accord because of his family's out-of-state move or whether he was was forced out of the cast because of his bad behavior remains a matter of conjecture. Perhaps it was a combination of the two. ABC received zero letters of complaint regarding the cast change. Gelbwaks never worked in show business again. According to a fansite, Gelbwaks is married and lives in New Orleans. Gelbwaks appeared on Danny Bonaduce's short-lived syndicated talk show in 1995 when most of The Partridge Family cast gathered for a 25th anniversary reunion. Both Chrises made appearances on that program and there seemed to be no animosity among those who were present. (David Cassidy was unavailable to appear, however.)

I Think I Love You - Partridge Family The top-selling single from 1970 was I Think I Love You by The Partridge Family. When this song reached number one on the Billboard charts, it meant that Shirley Jones became only the second person (after Frank Sinatra) to have both a number-one song and an acting Oscar! Here is a singalong version of this pleasant, upbeat tune.

Our Gang - Dickie Moore Dickie Moore was an Our Gang regular in 1932 and 1933, becoming one of the troupe's lead male characters. Dickie was a clean-cut, likable boy who often played the 'straight man' parts against more comical characters. In addition to his Our Gang work, Moore is often remembered for his portrayal of the title character in the 1933 adaptation of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist and as Marlene Dietrich's son in Blonde Venus (1932). He is also famous for giving Shirley Temple her first onscreen kiss, in Miss Annie Rooney (1942). With dozens of news cameras present to record the 'end-of-innocence kiss,' Moore has described the incident as the most terrifying of his life. (It was the first time in his 17 years that he had kissed any girl!) Moore was less successful as a teenage and young-adult actor, and retired from the screen in the early 1950s. Moore went on to teach and write books about acting, edit Equity magazine, perform on Broadway, in stock, and on television. He also wrote and directed for TV, produced an Oscar-nominated short film (The Boy and the Eagle), and produced industrial films. Moore, who married actress Jane Powell in 1988, passed away on September 10, 2015--just two days before his ninetieth birthday.

Saturday Night Live With Howard Cosell Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell was a dreadful variety program that ran on ABC from September 1975 to January 1976. It, of course, was hosted by sports announcer Howard Cosell and produced by Roone Arledge of Monday Night Football fame. It was later remembered by its director Don Mischer as 'one of the greatest disasters in the history of television,' largely due to Cosell and Arledge being unfamiliar with comedy and variety programming. Coincidentally, that same year NBC began airing a late-night comedy show titled Saturday Night. The shows did not directly compete. (Cosell's program aired at 8 p.m. whereas NBC's show aired at 11:30 p.m.) Cosell's show featured Bill Murray, Brian Doyle-Murray, and Christopher Guest as regular comedy performers dubbed 'The Prime Time Players.' In response, the NBC show called its regular performers 'the Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time Players.' Ironically, all three of the original Prime Time Players eventually joined the NBC show. The premiere episode featured celebrity guests Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, Paul Anka, Siegfried and Roy, the cast of the Broadway version of The Wiz, Jimmy Connors, John Denver and the Bay City Rollers (whom Cosell dubbed 'the next British phenomenon'). The show was often hectic and unprepared. In one instance, Arledge learned that Lionel Hampton was in New York City and invited the musician to appear just an hour before airtime. The show fared poorly among critics and audiences alike, with TV Guide calling it 'dead on arrival, with a cringingly awkward host.' Alan King, the show's 'executive in charge of comedy,' admitted it was difficult to turn Cosell into a variety show host, saying Cosell 'made Ed Sullivan look like Buster Keaton.' Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell was canceled on January 17, 1976, after only 18 episodes. A year later, in 1977, NBC's Saturday Night was renamed Saturday Night Live.
