  • LIFE WITH LUCY
  • some pilot, I don't know what it was called but it was on ABC one night after ROSEANNE. I remember it aired during the summer, and it's obvious why. Anyway; it was about these 2 guys who were friends, one was single and a "confirmed bachelor" the other one had been married about a year; and they were both big football fans. That's all I remember..god that show was HORRIBLE!!!!

Grady-a (merciffely) short-lived spinn-off of SANFORD & SON from the mid 70s. If you thought LIFE WITH LUCY was bad-this show was AWFUL!



The pilot for a series based on the movie THE SUNSHINE BOYS, which was a great movie, but this show was AWFUL! Thank god someone had the sense to ax it when they did! (it also aired in the mid-70s)

Wasn't "Que Pasa, USA" something along that line?

For me it has to be The Bob Crane Show, which lasted about 13 episodes in about 1975. I TRIED to like that show, but it NEVER made me laugh.

Que Pasa, USA was a great show. It starred a very young pre-Scarface Steven Bauer. It was about two immigrants from Cuba, Pepe and Juana(the parents). The son and daughter wanted to speak English, but the family wanted to keep in the tradition Spanish language. So it is a mixture of Spanglish itself, pretty interesting. Great episodes, my favorite was the episode where I think the son has a dream that the family did learn the English language.

One show that was a career destroyer was The Chevy Chase Show. Even Goldey Horne sensed the danger...
