Emilys Reasons Why Not - One Episode Sitcom Emily's Reasons Why Not was a very short-lived ABC sitcom starring Heather Graham. The show was based on the novel of the same name. Although seven episodes were made, Emily's Reasons Why Not was cancelled after one episode on Monday, January 9, 2006. The series centered on Emily (Graham), an author of self-help books who is unable to find success in romance. In the premiere episode she ends a bad relationship and adopts a new rule for her romances: if she can list five reasons to break up with a guy...she does. Emily gets help from her friends, among them Josh, whose character is strongly based on overtly gay stereotypes. The show was widely considered a less risqué copycat of Sex and the City. In the first episode, Emily is convinced the man she is dating is gay when he is actually a devout Mormon practising chastity before marriage. The show drew fire from pro-abstinence groups for its inability to portray an abstinent person without relying on stereotypes of homosexuality. Despite heavy promotion by both Sony Pictures Television and ABC, the show was pulled after the first episode due to drawing only 6.2 million viewers. Production was stopped after filming six episodes. ABC was said to have spent millions on promotion, including airtime, billboards and radio ads, and considered Emily to be the 'linchpin' of the network's post-football Monday-night schedule. After viewing it, ABC's entertainment president suggested that they considered the show lackluster and unlikely to improve. The New York Times attributed the show's cancellation in part to the extremely unappealing nature of the main character and her portrayal by Graham.

Death of Calvin Coolidge Jr This photo of president Calvin Coolidge's family was taken on June 30, 1924. Sixteen-year-old Calvin Junior is on the left. That same day young Calvin developed a blister on his foot while playing tennis with older brother John on the White House tennis court. The blister became infected, resulting in blood poisoning. There were no antibiotics in 1924. He died a week later on July 7. I often use this story as an example of the 'good old days' not being so good if one became ill.

Nancy - Failed Sitcom 1970 This is the opening montage to Nancy, a short-lived sitcom that ran on NBC from September 17, 1970 to January 7, 1971. Here's how Total Television describes it: "Insipid sitcom about the daughter of the President of the United States, who, while vacationing in Iowa, met and married a veterinarian." Renne Jarrett played Nancy Smith. John Fink played Adam Hudson, the vet. Celeste Holm played Abby Townsend, the President's wife's press secretary who also served as Nancy's official chaperone. Despite being featured on a TV Guide cover, Nancy never caught the viewers' fancy. It was yanked after 17 episodes.

Norby - Failed Color Sitcom 1955 Here is the opening montage for the short-lived sitcom Norby, starring David Wayne. It was a rare color sitcom from 1955--a time when very few American households had color televisions. Sponsored by Eastman Kodak who provided the color film, Norby was a family sitcom that followed the life of Pearson Norby (David Wayne), the vice-president of First National Bank in Pearl River, NY. Joan Lorring played Pearson's wife Helen. Susan Hallaran played daughter Diane. Evan Elliott played son Hank. Norby aired Wednesdays at 7 p.m.--a peculiar time slot that many NBC affiliates still reserved for local programming. It debuted on January 5, 1955. The thirteenth and final episode aired on April 6, 1955.
