Default The wrong MOVE

Watching TVography of this show I was able to find out the setting was changed to California because of sagging ratings. But instead of moving the characters to California, shouldn;t the show just have been moved to another timeslot since L&S couldn't compete with the Waltons on Thursdays Nights?-lol Seems like that move would have made a lot more sense.

Yes, I'm in agreement with you. The show should have stayed at 8:30pm on Tuesday night.

I think since it was number 1, ABC proabably thought he could help the ratings for a night that wasn;t as strong like Thursdays.

Yeah the move was soooo DUMB, I remember Penny or Cindy saying that the move was a bad mistake because they were having stars on there who were suppose to have been in their 20's but since it was actually in the mid-late 70's the stars were actully in their 50's LOL.

Like when they had an episode where Lavern and Shirley met Fabian. He was in his 20's in the 50's but since the show actually took place in the 70's Fabian looked dumb trying to act and LOOK 20 LOL

Yep, and Cindy was jealous because she thought Penny got more lines and more laughs than she did.

ive heard garry marshall say many times that he told fred silverman way before l&s went on the air that penny was very moody and hard to work with and was going to be a giant pain but fred didnt heed garrys warnings .you would think garry warning him about his own sister would have been a red flag but i guess not

I think that any hope for a happy work place would have been a pipe dream considering that of the four main stars, one was the producer's sister who may or may not have earned her success on her own merits, one was an actress who considered television slumming (which it was considered to be to an extent) and was damaging her potential film career, and two actors who already had a cult-classic appeal via their radio show and probably felt like sell outs doing a formulaic sitcom. Considering how much behind the scenes strife and unprofessionalism that there was, I think it's a small miracle that they were able to create such a popular and beloved show. I think the main four (and the supporting cast of three) are very talented individuals, and the fact that they were able to still turn out such a wonderful show says a lot about them.

I'm probably alone in this, but I would love to see the suviving members of the cast reunite in some venue to play different characters. I'd just love to see what the dynamic would be like.

Well the timeslot move wasn't as bad as the Shirley move. Still Cannot believe Cindy Williams left the series. The last season, there should have been a Title Change too.

I agree, Buffy Boy. Cindy Williams leaving in the last season was the deathblow to the series--not to mention the fact that she damaged her own career and reputation with such unprofessional behavior. I really wish that she'd stayed to the end and that the fans had been given some closure.
