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.

Brady Bunch - Final Episode The final first-run episode of The Brady Bunch aired 40 years ago today: Friday, March 8, 1974. It was the 116th installment of the show. Robert Reed (who played father Mike Brady) thought the script was so bad he refused to appear in the episode. Here's the plot: The two youngest Brady kids come up with separate ideas to make a fortune. Bobby acquires a case of hair tonic from a mail-order company and tries to sell the stuff door-to-door at $2 a bottle. Cindy intends to breed rabbits. Bobby has no luck as a salesman. Oldest brother Greg--who is about to graduate from high school--takes pity on Bobby and buys a bottle of the tonic. When he uses it, however, his hair turns a ghastly shade of bright orange! Five shampoos only serve to make Greg's hair even more hideous. Eventually a dye job at Carol Brady's favorite beauty parlor restores Greg's hair to its normal shade of black just in time for his big night where he graduates with honors. (Mike is noticeably absent when the family returns home from the ceremony. He is said to be out of town on business.) Meanwhile, Cindy's rabbit-breeding efforts are in vain because she discovers she has only male rabbits. When Bobby tries to pour his unsold tonic down a drain, he accidentally spills some of it on Cindy's rabbits. Bobby and Cindy agree to make the best of the situation by selling orange rabbits. By the 1973-74 season, The Brady Bunch was in severe decline. The kids were all over 12 years old and the show's original premise of two families merging into one was long gone. In an attempt to appeal to a younger demographic, Robbie Rist was brought in as Cousin Oliver for the final six shows. It didn't work. NBC's Sanford and Son was clobbering The Brady Bunch in the ratings so ABC pulled the plug. The last rerun aired on ABC on August 30, 1974. Still, the remarkable cult following of The Brady Bunch was strong enough to garner three failed reincarnations: The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, The Brady Brides, and The Bradys. A 1988 Brady-based made-for-TV Christmas movie drew enormous ratings.

Kodiak - Failed TV Drama Here's an ABC promotional clip for Kodiak, a new 30-minute 1974 police show set in Alaska. Kodiak starred Clint Walker as Cal (Kodiak) McKay of the Alaska State Patrol. Walker had seldom been seen on television since his days on the western Cheyenne, which ended in 1963. Kodiak was doomed as ABC slotted it against NBC's megahit Sanford and Son. Poor ratings caused its cancellation after just four weeks. Here's a tidbit of trivia: Kodiak was the show that replaced The Brady Bunch in ABC's 8 p.m. time slot on Fridays.

Sanford Arms - Sitcom Flop Here is the opening sequence to one of the most pointless sitcoms ever attempted: Sanford Arms. The popular NBC sitcom Sanford and Son had ended in September 1977 after a run of five-and-a-half years. Star Redd Foxx (who played Fred Sanford) had left NBC to do a variety show for ABC. Demond Wilson (Lamont Sanford) was supposed to continue on as the star of Sanford Arms. However NBC balked at paying his demands for more money for being the star of the show, so Wilson bailed out. Undaunted, NBC produced the show using secondary characters from Sanford and Son. The first episode explained that Fred and Lamont had moved to Arizona for Fred's health. Their old house plus the place next door had been bought by Phil Wheeler. Wheeler would use the Sanford house as his business office and home while the next-door property would be converted into a rooming house christened Sanford Arms. The public was utterly uninterested. Sanford Arms debuted on September 16, 1977 and aired just four times (although eight total episodes were made). Atrocious ratings caused NBC to abruptly axed the show following the October 13 broadcast.

The New Odd Couple - 1982 Sitcom Flop In 1982 ABC tried to resurrect The Odd Couple. It had run on that network from 1970 to 1975 with the familiar and popular duo of Jack Klugman and Tony Randall. This time ABC tried it with a black twosome in the leading roles: Demond Wilson (who starred on Sanford and Son from 1972 to 1977) played sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison. Ron Glass (who starred on Barney Miller from 1975 to 1982) played fussy fashion photographer Felix Unger. While the show was billed as the "new" version of The Odd Couple, seven of the series' first 13 scripts were merely recycled versions of the 1970s episodes. Viewers didn't like the the show at all: The New Odd Couple lasted just 16 episodes before being yanked off the air.

Hot L Baltimore - Sitcom Flop 1975 ABC had high hopes when its risque and controversial sitcom Hot L Baltimore debuted in 1975. Ultimately, though, the show never captured the hearts of TV viewers and was summarily axed less than five months into its run. The show, based on a successful off-Broadway play, took place in the rundown Hotel Baltimore in Baltimore, MD. It drew its title from the cheap establishment's neon marquee, which had a burned-out letter "e" that had never been replaced. The half-hour series premiered on January 24, 1975 and was produced by Norman Lear for ABC. (It was, in fact, the first Lear property to air on ABC.) The cast included Conchata Ferrell, James Cromwell, Richard Masur, Al Freeman, Jr., Gloria LeRoy, Jeannie Linero, and Charlotte Rae. The show's plots focused on the lives of the odd assemblage of disparate characters who called the seedy hotel home. The series had several controversial elements, including two primary characters who were prostitutes--one of whom was an illegal immigrant--and one of the first gay couples to be depicted on an American television series. Because of its storylines, Hot L Baltimore was the first network television show to have a warning during its opening, cautioning viewers about mature themes. ABC gave Hot L Baltimore a full publicity campaign, but it failed to win an audience and was canceled after just 13 episodes; its last telecast was June 6, 1975. This series is notable as the first failure for producer Norman Lear after a very successful streak of mega-hit TV series beginning with All in the Family in 1971 and continuing with Sanford and Son, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, among others.

AfterMASH TV networks can't leave well enough alone. In February 1983, MASH exited the airwaves in a blaze of glory after 11 successful and brilliant seasons of quality television. Seven months later, CBS reunited a few of its characters in a sequel titled AfterMASH. (The title was intended to be a pun on "aftermath".) The show was set immediately following the end of the Korean War and chronicled the adventures of three characters from the original series: Colonel Potter (played by Harry Morgan), Klinger (Jamie Farr) and Father Mulcahy (William Christopher). By several quirks of fate, all three end up working at a veterans' hospital in Missouri. Rosalind Chao rounded out the starring cast as Soon-Lee Klinger, a Korean refugee whom Klinger met in the last two episodes of MASH and married at the end of the series. AfterMASH premiered on September 26, 1983 in the same Monday night 9:00 p.m. EST. time slot that MASH once had. Curious and faithful MASH fans provided vast audience numbers for that first broadcast. AfterMASH debuted at #1 in the weekly TV ratings--the first time a new show had done that since Laverne and Shirley. It finished 10th out of all network shows for the 1983-1984 season according to Nielsen Media Research television ratings. For its second season CBS disastrously moved the show to Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. EST., opposite NBC's top-ten hit The A-Team. CBS launched an optimistic marketing campaign featuring illustrations by Sanford Kossin of Max Klinger in a nurse's uniform, shaving off Mr. T's signature mohawk, theorizing AfterMASH would take a large portion of The A-Team's audience. The exact opposite occurred: AfterMASH's ratings plummeted to near the bottom of the television rankings and the show was canceled just nine episodes into its second season. Twenty-nine AfterMASH episodes had aired, one was shown as late as May 1985. A thirtieth episode was completed but was never broadcast. Comparisons to the original MASH were inevitable and largely unfavorable. In 2002, TV Guide listed AfterMASH, perhaps uncharitably, as the seventh-worst TV series ever.
