Default Not bad.....

Well, I enjoyed it. It really was cool seeing all those outtakes & bloopers, practical jokes. And seeing the cast all up on the stage was so nice.

I'll admit, I was never a regular viewer, but at my age (30s) I sure can remember the hype around it & how all these kids in school used to talk about The Fonz! It did bring back some nice memories.

Do kids today have a similar tv hero, I wonder? Or has that died w/ the 70s? Maybe Cosby might've taken up that torch for adults in the 80s(?)


Anyway, about the show last night, there was something a little....I dunno..'contrived'-looking about it. Just me, or did Scott Baio keep having a "This is such BS" look on his face?

I think the fact it was scripted & *highly* edited (during the stage/reunion parts) made it feel sorta phony. Garry Marshall's hosting came across as a bit of a "reading". I can't put my finger on it.

They also could've cut the baseball game segment a bit shorter & the commercial breaks came WAY too frequently.

Personally, I believe the show went noticably downhill after it began to *look* too 70s. (ie: Leather Tuscadero, too much focus on Scott etc) And even back then, I thought "Joannie Loves Chachie" was the dumbest idea.

At any rate, I was glad to simply see them all in the same room again.

I enjoyed it too except the baseball playing was a bit much (I got bored) and I was hoping it would go away...... Scott was really making faces like he wanted to melt away. He never even acknowledged his ex girlfriend Joanie.

/QUOTE]

I didn't really notice a look like that on Scott's face, but if he DID feel that way, he SHOULDN'T have. Frankly (and I KNOW that I'm going to make a lot of Baio fans mad at me for this), he was lucky that he was included in the reunion as much as he was! I never considered him part of the core "varsity team" (Howard, Winkler, Williams, Most, Moran, Bosley and Ross), and the addition of Chachi did a LOT to ruin the series....so Scott should consider himself fortunate that he was included (and honored) as much as he was last night, and allowed to sit there with the "big kids"!

I forgot to mention that Henry Winkler as the Fonz is still looking good (In my humble opinion)........

I also forgot to mention that I did see Fonzie's leather jacket at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC along with Archie Bunkers chair.

Default In Desperate Need of a Copy of the Reunion

Hey everyone!

I'm new to the site but when I did a search on Google, I came across this message board. I was wondering if anyone taped this reunion show. I was supposed to tape it for a friend of mine who LOVES HD and my VCR messed up so it didn't work. He's really upset about it so I'm searching the internet looking for anyone that would be willing to sell me a copy. I'm willing to pay shipping costs as well!

PLEASE let me know as soon as possible!

Thanks!!

Default Erin & Scott

Hi all...
If I recall this was a sore subject for Erin back then and probably is today. If you noticed during the Q&A, Gary M. said we have a question for you, to Erin and it was cut. Instead it look like she just commented on being part of the cast. I wonder if the question had something to do with her relationship with Scott[??]. I noticed Scott B. isn't married [no ring] and is probably still playing the field. Also, he was seated at the opposite end from Erin.

Overall it was a great program, [the multitude of commercials seems to be the norm now].
Cheers

Yeah. And she really didnt look too bad in my opinion, aside from that odd haircolor.

Early Ratings Report:

ABC kicks big butt
with 'Happy Days'

Who would have thought? Twenty million tune in.

The debate can finally end: "Happy Days" has most assuredly not jumped the shark.
Thursday night’s ABC “Happy Days 30th Anniversary Reunion” brought the network its best Thursday numbers since 2003’s Michael Jackson special to kick off the February sweeps.
According to Nielsen overnights, ABC averaged an impressive 6.3 adults 18-49 rating for the two-hour reunion beginning at 8 p.m. Nearly 20 million total viewers also caught the show, giving ABC the best numbers for any network during the period from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
NBC did manage the nightly win among 18-49s after ABC dropped dramatically at 10 p.m., but ABC bettered NBC among households and total viewers for the night. CBS finished first in both those categories despite airing a “CSI” repeat at 8 p.m.
Thursdays are ABC’s weakest night, and 8 p.m. has been especially grim. Recent time slot occupant “life as we know it” averaged a mere 1.4 18-49 rating.
“Happy Days” more than tripled that rating, averaging a 6.2 during the 8 p.m. hour. NBC’s “Joey” averaged just a 4.3, 10 percent off its season-to-date 4.8 average, and “Will & Grace” averaged a 4.8, 6 percent off its season average of 5.1.
“Happy Days” pulled ABC’s best Thursday numbers since it aired a Michael Jackson special to kick off the November sweeps two years ago. That show drew some 27 million total viewers.
“Happy Days” gives ABC a welcome boost to start the sweeps period, when it has a good chance at finishing first or second to “American Idol”-fueled Fox.
But the news was not so good for NBC, which needed the two weeks before “Survivor” returns to build up its edge over CBS. Once “Survivor” comes back, CBS will once again dominate Thursdays. NBC no longer has one night a week when it can consistently win 18-49s.
As usual, an original episode of CBS's "CSI" was the highest-rated show among viewers 18-49, but its 8.9 average rating barely edged an 8.8 by NBC's "ER." NBC took the night in the demo, averaging a 6.9 rating and a 17 share. CBS was second at 6.2/15, ABC third at 5.2/13, Fox fourth at 2.5/6, UPN fifth at 1.6/4 and the WB sixth at 0.8/2.
At 8 p.m. ABC led with the first hour of "Happy Days" averaging a 6.2 rating among 18-49s. NBC finished second that hour with a 4.6 average for "Joey" (4.3) and "Will & Grace" (4.8), followed by CBS's 3.7 average for a "CSI" rerun. Fox was fourth with a 3.4 average for "The O.C."
CBS jumped into the lead at 9 p.m. with "CSI's" 8.9 average among 18-49s. NBC was second with a 7.2 average for "The Apprentice" and ABC third with a 6.3 average for the last hour of the "Happy Days" special.
At 10 p.m. NBC took the lead with "ER's" 8.8 average, followed by a 6.0 average for CBS for "Without a Trace." ABC was third that hour with a 3.1 average for "Primetime."
CBS finished the night first among households, averaging a 12.0 rating and an 18 share. ABC was second at 10.4/16, NBC third at 9.5/15, Fox fourth at 3.6/5, UPN fifth at 3.2/5 and the WB sixth at 1.7/3. CBS averaged 18.5 million total viewers to ABC’s 16.3 million and NBC’s 14.3 million.

Yes, and I noticed something else....There was a part where Gary Marshall approached Erin and said, "Erin, you grew up during "Happy Days...", and Erin sort of rolled her eyes and sarcastically said, "I sure DID!". There was SOMETHING there between her and Scott, and it obviously wasn't too pleasant.

If you remember, years ago there was an earlier "reunion" special with the "Happy Days" gang (not HALF as good as THIS one was), and the cast sat around and talked about the series...but Erin refused to appear on that show. During a later interview, she said that she was sitting home watching the special with her husband....and when Scott Baio started casually talking about the "thing" that he and Erin had during the run of "Happy Days", Erin was FURIOUS and went WILD! She said that she jumped up from the sofa and started screaming to her husband (and the TV set), "I can't BELIEVE that he's going on TV and TALKING about that as if it was NOTHING!". I've heard some nasty rumors of what happened between the two of them (let's just say it has something to do with "When a girl says 'No" she MEANS 'No'"), and it took Erin a long time to get over it....if she indeed HAS!

The numbers:

Happy Days was #1 in the 8pm hour overall and viewers 18-49. 12.8/20 overall (20.6 million) and a 6.3/15 among adults 18-49.

Happy Day was #2 in the 9pm hour overall (behing only CSI) and a close third for viewers 18-49. 12.2/18 overall (19.29 million) and and a 6.4/15 for adults 18-49.

That is quite impressive that it dominated like that. It held up well with CSI at 9pm. It beat The Apprentice by a ton overall, though it did have an advantage among adults 18-49.

So from 8-10pm, Happy Days averaged a 12.5/19 - 19.95 milion average. "Goodbye gray skies, hello blue," to ABC Thursdays!
