I liked "Angie" (my mom's Italian, my dad's from Philadelphia!), but that's not what I'm here to talk about. . . .

Didn't that show actaully straddle two seasons?

Yup it lasted 2 seasons. After ABC took Angie off Tuesday Nights in Between Happy Days and Three' Company, the show really took a nose dive in the ratings. So it looks like the show only benefited in it's first season from being on the Tuesday Night Lineup.

I was about to list a bunch of them, but this one stands out. "Honeymoon Hotel" with Isabel Sanford. It came out around 1987, she starred as someone running a hotel. I don't remember all the details, but I remember trying to get into it, and I couldn't. I was done after the first episode. It ran in syndication.

Sounds like a knockoff of another bad one-season wonder - Bea Arthur's series "Amanda's," itself a knockoff of John Cleese's much-loved "Fawlty Towers."

Bea Arthur on "Amanda's" - "I'm glad it wasn't in a better time slot, because then more people would have seen it."

Way back during the summer of 1991 one of our local Chicago stations played a marathion of Angie episodes and I thought they were pretty good. I also remember that the theme song was pretty cool.

I actually live in Schaumburg, the same town you live in. We talked about this before remember? I graduated from Schaumburg High School in 1994.
