Failed Spinoff - The Tortellis In the early seasons of Cheers, some of the funniest episodes centered around the antics of Nick Tortelli, the sleazy ex-husband of Cheers barmaid Carla. Played by Dan Hedaya, Nick was a TV repairman who eventually married ex-showgirl Loretta (played by Jean Kasem and described by Total Television as "statuesque but dippy"). NBC figured the duo of Nick and Loretta had the potential to be comedy gold, so in January 1987 they were given their own sitcom titled The Tortellis. The show's premise was that Nick and his trophy wife had already split up and Loretta had returned to Las Vegas. They reconcile in the pilot episode and remain in Nevada in a crowded household. The couple lived with Nick's oldest son and his teenage wife--and Nick's pragmatic sister and her young son. The show never caught on, despite occasional special appearances by Cheers cast members. The Tortellis was dropped by NBC after the 13th episode aired on May 12, 1987 less than four months after its debut. Nick and Loretta made one more appearance on Cheers in which it was explained that Nick's TV repair business had failed.

Awful Lucille Ball Statue has Fans in Uproar In 2012 a bronze statue of beloved comedienne Lucille Ball was unveiled in her hometown of Celeron, NY. The reaction to 'Scary Lucy' (as the locals call it) has been overwhelmingly negative. Most Lucy fans think the statue bears little resemblance to the late, great TV icon. One person described it as "looking like a drunken zombie." There has been renewed interest in Scary Lucy because recently a Facebook page was created by upset fans who want the statue taken down. In a 2015 interview, artist Dave Poulin said he too was disappointed with the final product and hopes to get a chance to create a better replacement. The statue was funded by private donations.

Ron Howard Happy Days TV Guide Cover 1974 Happy Days began its 10-year run on ABC on January 15, 1974 as a mid-season replacement show. Its nostalgic look at 1950s America was well received by people of all ages. This TV Guide cover from June 1974 shows Ron Howard and actress Kathy O'Dare. Despite what the caption says, O'Dare was not a regular on the series. In fact, she was only in two episodes that aired more than a year apart in which she played two different characters. However, O'Dare was in the very first episode, titled 'All The Way.' The plot has Potsie arranging a date for Richie with classmate Mary Lou Mulligan, a vapid, shapely lass who has 'a reputation.' It turns out that Mary Lou's alleged reputation is based on mere gossip and she really is 'a nice girl.' O'Dare also appeared on an episode of The Brady Bunch in 1974 as the apple of Peter Brady's eye. O'Dare later reunited with Howard when they co-starred in a forgettable 1976 southern-style car-chase film titled Eat My Dust. O'Dare died at the young age of 52 in 2010.

Love American Style - The Elopement Love American Style was a light-hearted program that aired on ABC from 1969 to 1974. It was usually comprised of three unrelated segments that involved some sort of romantic entanglement. The show had no ongoing cast; familiar actors from other TV shows normally played the lead roles. The show's main segments were separated with 'blackouts'--short, comedic vignettes. Love American Style was considered somewhat risque for its time because of its bedroom humor. Here's a good example: Davy Jones and Karen Valentine star in this 10-minute clip from 1970 about an elopement that goes wrong when the groom-to-be enters the wrong girl's window. It is preceded by a 'blackout' that would have raised a few eyebrows in 1970. (Try to ignore the logo that appears in the middle of the screen.)

Toma - Forgotten TV Show In March 1973 ABC aired a 90-minute made-for-TV movie called Toma, based on the real-life exploits of David Toma, a New York City detective who was a master of disguises. The feedback was positive enough for ABC to make Toma a regular cop-show series during the 1973-74 TV season. Tony Musante starred as the title character. Here is the opening montage. The real David Toma never once had to fire his gun, but the TV series named for him was replete with violence and gun play. The real Toma made a few cameo appearances in minor roles. Critics generally liked the show, and it pulled in decent enough ratings for ABC to plan for a second season. However, Musante surprisingly decided one season was enough for him. Accordingly, ABC created Baretta, an entirely different cop show but one with a similar feel to Toma. Baretta lasted for four seasons. The 22 episodes of Toma have never aired in syndication.

1985 NBA Draft Lottery Conspiracy Many NBA fans steadfastly claim that the league's first draft lottery, held in 1985, was rigged. Prior to 1985, the two teams that finished in last place in the NBA's two conferences used a coin toss to determine which of the bottom-feeders would pick first overall in the collegiate draft that summer. This practice led to the accusation that some teams that had little hope of being competitive were deliberately tanking games to get in on the coin toss. To make tanking a less attractive proposition, the NBA instituted a 'draft lottery' in 1985 in which the seven teams that did not qualify for the playoffs had an equal chance of getting the first overall pick. In 1985 that selection would obviously be used to choose Patrick Ewing of Georgetown University who had led the Hoyas to three berths in the NCAA final in four years. Even before the draft was held there was scuttlebutt that the NBA would rig the draw so that the New York Knicks, the team with the biggest TV market, would get the #1 pick. The lottery was held at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. CBS televised the lottery between halves of a playoff game. As this clip shows, it was a very simplistic lottery. Seven sealed envelopes, each containing a team's logo, were put into a transparent sphere drum. The drum was spun. Commissioner David Stern selected the seven envelopes one at a time for the one to seven draft slots in that order. Almost immediately conspiracy theorists argued the draw had been rigged in favor of the Knicks. The fourth envelope tossed into the drum contained the Knicks' logo. It ended up with a bent corner because it was tossed into the drum more strongly than the other envelopes. Some cynics even claim the Knicks' envelope was frozen so Commissioner Stern would select the coldest envelope first! Others point out that the law firm responsible for overseeing the fairness of the lottery had a financial interest in the Knicks. Interestingly, the team that ended up with the seventh pick, Golden State, had the worst record in the NBA in 1984-85. In previous years they would have gotten no worse than the second pick. David Stern has always scoffed at the idea that the 1985 lottery was rigged. Watch for yourself and decide if anything was amiss.
