Celebrity Sweepstakes - Game Show Celebrity Sweepstakes was an NBC game show that aired from April 1, 1974 to October 1, 1976. It was hosted by Jim MacKrell. Here's how it worked: A panel of six celebrities was asked a trivia question. Before knowing the exact question but only the category, the members of the studio audience, through an electronic voting system, determined the odds of each panelist answering the question correctly by selecting whom they thought was most likely to give the correct answer. Based on those odds, the contestants wagered money on a celebrity and then found out if the bet was a good one. Celebrity Sweepstakes was originally slotted against Search for Tomorrow where it did not fare well against the popular CBS soap opera. It was then moved to 10 a.m. where it routinely bettered The Joker's Wild in the ratings. However, when CBS expanded The Price is Right to an hour, Celebrity Sweepstakes was blown away. For years it was believed all Celebrity Sweepstakes episodes had been erased by NBC, but obviously this one survived. This is the final eight minutes of the final show from October 1, 1976.

Oprah Meets Mary Tyler Moore I not a big fan of Oprah Winfrey, but I found this clip to be charming: In a 1993 program Oprah declared that one of her favorite TV shows was the Mary Tyler Moore Show because Mary represented so much to working females. In 1997, Mary surprised Oprah on her show. Oprah's reaction proves that even celebrities can be star-struck on occasion.

Herb Albert and his band NOT Hispanic or Latino According to Wikipedia: No one in Alpert's band was actually Hispanic. Alpert used to tell his audiences that his group consisted of "Four lasagnas, two bagels, and an American cheese":

Rhoda - Opening Montage Here is the opening montage from the first season of Rhoda, a sitcom starring Valerie Harper. Rhoda was a successful spinoff of The Mary Tyler Moore Show that ran from 1974 to 1978. The premise of the sitcom was that Rhoda moves from Minneapolis back to her New York City roots. Over the course of the show Rhoda married and divorced, and saw her parents divorce too! Rhoda's sister Brenda was played by Julie Kavner--best known today as the voice of Marge Simpson.

Edie Adams Sings Thats All Edie Adams does a terrific rendition of That's All in this clip from the final episode of the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour ("Lucy Meets The Moustache") which I Love Lucy eventually evolved into. It aired on April 1, 1960. The show was taped in the first week of March 1960. By that time Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were no longer speaking to each other when the cameras weren't rolling. According to Adams, the tension on the set was palpable. (In fact, Lucy initiated divorce proceedings the day after this episode was completed.) Witnesses say Adams' song brought several of the cast members and crew to tears as it really was "that's all" for many of them.

Vanishing TV Character - John Burns of Taxi First airing in 1978, the ABC sitcom Taxi was an instant hit because of its clever writing and superb cast. In the pilot episode, a naive and somewhat dopey student named John Burns arrives in New York City and ends up in the Sunshine Cab building because he doesn't have a small bill to pay for his fare and main character Alex Reiger can't make change for a $50 note. By the end of that first episode, Burns has joined the rest of the gang as a cab driver. Randall Carver played Burns. Burns was by far the weakest character in the show's regular cast. Naivete was the key personality trait of Burns, but it was also the hallmark of Tony Banta (played by Tony Danza), an aspiring but largely unsuccessful pro boxer who made his living as a cabbie. Banta's and Burns' lines were so similar that they became almost interchangeable. A mid-season plot development in which Burns marries a girl after just one date failed to make his character stand out. At the end of the first season, John Burns just disappeared from the cast. What happened to him? Who knows? Not only was Burns' absence never explained, he was never mentioned again during the remainder of the series' successful run. Carver himself only had a handful of TV gigs in his post-Taxi acting career. Carver was essentially replaced in the Taxi cast by Christopher Lloyd whose burnt-out hippie character Reverend Jim Ignatowski was immensely popular. Lloyd won two Emmys for best supporting actor in a comedy series.

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.

Philadelphia Flyers Win 1975 Cup The Philadelphia Flyers won their second consecutive Stanley Cup on May 27, 1975 with a 2-0 victory of the Buffalo Sabres. The win gave the Flyers a six-game victory in the finals. Here are the two goals in the third period that clinched the game for the visitors. As noted at the end of this clip, the Flyers had an all-Canadian roster--the last time such a team won the Stanley Cup. Danny Gallivan and Dick Irvin of Hockey Night in Canada call the game.

Cheers - Frederick Speaks My favorite Cheers moment: In a memorable ninth-season episode, Frasier and Lillith are concerned that their 11-month-old son Frederick hasn't yet spoken his first word. They jointly agree that their toddler needs proper intellectual stimulation--but Frasier takes him to the bar anyway. When Lillith discovers Frasier and Frederick at Cheers, Frederick dramatically says his first word!
