TV Disaster - My Three Sons Final Season My Three Sons ran for 12 seasons (1960 through 1972), first on ABC then on CBS. It is the second-longest running live-action sitcom in American TV history, behind only The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Despite plentiful cast changes, the departure of three major characters, and implausible plot twists, it remained a reliable ratings-grabber year after year. For most of its time on CBS, MTS enjoyed a favorable Saturday 8 p.m. time slot. Prior to what would be its final season, CBS decided to give its hugely popular new series All in the Family the time slot MTS was accustomed to having. MTS was moved to Monday at 10 p.m.--a horrible time for most kids to watch it. In addition to the time change for the twelfth season, a bizarre storyline was introduced: Fred MacMurray, who played family patriarch Steven Douglas, took on a second role--that of his cousin the Laird (Lord) Ferguson McBain Douglas of Sithian Bridge. English actor Alan Caillou's voice was dubbed for MacMurray's whenever Lord Douglas spoke. The plot centered around Lord Douglas' arrival in Los Angeles from Scotland. He came in search of a First Lady to marry and return with him to Scotland. He found Terri Dowling (Anne Francis), a waitress at the Blue Berry Bowling Alley. While initially reluctant to give up her life in America and return to Scotland as royalty, she finally accepted. This odd storyline was a continuation of a plot idea that originally began in the fourth season, when the Douglases visited Scotland on the pretense of having been told they had inherited a castle. With a later time slot--well after many younger MTS fans had gone to bed--the show finished the season outside the Top 30 for only the second time. In an attempt to save the series, CBS moved MTS in midseason to Thursday at 8:30 P.M. Nevertheless, MTS ended its prime-time run in the spring of 1972. Fred MacMurray, bitterly disappointed, protested the show's cancellation to CBS head honcho Fred Silverman, but to no avail. Although MTS was a staple on the rerun circuit for many years, the awful twelfth season was generally not included in the episodes made available for rebroadcast.

Snick Remember when SNICK Premiered? Nickelodeon at night that isnt Nick At Nite? WHAT! THIS IS AMAZING! The thought process of a 6 year old who just found out that Nickelodeon would be on the air until 10 PM on Saturday nights. This was huge for us kids who werent old enough to go out on Saturdays, and it gave us an excuse to beg our parents to let us stay up late. I mean hey, if Nick is still on, theres no way it too late to go to sleep right? Exactly. What a great bargaining chip by Nickelodeon. I remember it seemed like an eternity before SNICK kicked off. That orange couch still comes to mind every time someone talks about what to do on a Saturday night. Short for Saturday Night Nickelodeon ran from August 15, 1992 until August 28, 2004. (not cool, no reason to cancel such a great block, my guess since they were moving everything to Hollywood, this might have been cause and the fact that they lost good writters for these programs..in the 90's it was done right just like some in the 80's when it came to children's entertainment on Nick, this was the place. Today some are good from the 2000-2010 era- Rocket Power, Wild Thronberry's, Sponge Bob, to name a few. The block debuted on Saturday, August 15, 1992, with a pair of Sunday favorites (the preteen-oriented sitcom Clarissa Explains It All and the Nicktoon The Ren and Stimpy Show) and the network premieres of Roundhouse (a musical comedy variety series) and Are You Afraid of the Dark? (a horror anthology series)Ads and bumpers for SNICK featured the programming block's "mascot," dubbed "The Big Orange Couch," in several locales, including in front of the Midnight Society's campfire, Ren and Stimpy's house, and in various locations. It was retired in June 1999, when the iconic couch, stuffed with $25,000 and 6000 cookies, was given away in a contest celebrating Nickelodeon's 20 years on television. In 2006, one of Nickelodeon's celebrities would take over Nickelodeon from Monday to Friday, sitting on the Big Orange Couch. 1992-1994: 8PM Clarissa Explains It All 8:30PM Roundhouse 9PM The Ren & Stimpy Show 9:30PM Are You Afraid of the Dark? 1993 to mid-Summer 1994: 8PM Clarissa Explains It All 8:30PM The Adventures of Pete & Pete 9PM The Ren & Stimpy Show 9:30PM Are You Afraid of the Dark? 10PM Roundhouse 1994-1996: 8PM The Secret World of Alex Mack 8:30PM All That 9PM The Ren & Stimpy Show 9:30PM Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Ozzies Girls Does anyone (besides me) even remember the short-lived syndicated sitcom Ozzie's Girls? It aired in 1973. Twenty-four episodes were made. Here was the premise: Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, now empty-nesters, decide to rent their sons' old bedrooms to a pair of college girls named Susie Hamilton and Brenda MacKenzie. (Strangely, Brenda was known as Jennifer for the first few episodes; the name change was never explained.) The show's plots often centered around the parents of two boys now having to cope with two females in their house--mostly Ozzie's difficulties in adapting to a female-dominated home. David Nelson produced the series. Derided by Total Television as a "limp sequel" to The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Ozzie's Girls never caught on. It was not renewed for a second season.

Travelin Man - First TV Music Video Ricky Nelson, the younger of the two sons of TV's Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, became a successful recording artist starting in 1957. His first single, a cover version of Fats Domino's "I'm Walkin'," sold more than a million copies in record time. After that startling debut, Ricky regularly performed a song at the end of each episode of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. In 1961, Ricky had another song with "Travelin' Man." Since the song was short, Ozzie came up with an idea: Ricky would perform it twice. The second time it would be sung with a video montage of geographical locations shown in the background. The result was what some music historians cite as TV's first music video. Enjoy!

Vanishing TV Character - Thorny Thornberry The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet ran for 435 episodes over an amazing 14 seasons on ABC from 1952 to 1966--a record for a non-animated sitcom that still stands today. From 1952 to 1957 Don DeFore played the Nelsons' good-natured next-door neighbor "Thorny" Thornberry in 96 episodes. (Whatever Thorny's real first name was, it was never mentioned). Thorny often exchanged playful barbs with Ozzie Nelson and gave him ill-timed advice. Sometimes he got caught up in whatever amusing complications befell the Nelson patriarch and his family. DeFore was nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in 1955 and was generally a popular part of the program. However, the show began to focus on different neighbors in the late 1950s (primarily Joe and Mary Jane Randolph and Doc Williams). Thorny, despite his popularity, just vanished without any explanation. DeFore later had a starring role in the 1960s sitcom Hazel in which he played Hazel's employer George Baxter.

Forgotten Sitcom - California Fever In 1979 CBS presented a new, hour-long sitcom/adventure show about four free-spirited teenagers called California Fever. Here's a teaser plus the opening credits. (During its production, the show had been tentatively titled "We're Cruisin'.") It debuted on September 25, 1979--and was gone by December 11, 1979 after just 10 episodes. Its time slot was not an enviable one: It aired from 8 to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays--directly opposite the ABC juggernaut duo of Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. California Fever centered on the activities of a group of west coast youths who were often found at Rick's Place--a Sunset Beach hangout. The emphasis was typically on cars, music, and the opposite sex. Cast members included Jimmy McNichol, Marc McClure, Michele Tobin, and Lorenzo Lamas. Alan O'Day (who had a #1 song in 1977 with Undercover Angel) performed the theme.
