TV Ah-HA!!!

I knew it- May 10, 1980; that was the night Newhart first guest- hosted "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE", with the "Pink Lady and Carl" sketch!!!! (I just forgot which episode it was...). By that time, "PINK LADY & JEFF" had already been cancelled.

Thanks, 'cat', for that information!

In the beginning of the opening credits for the Pink Lady TV series, the Cleveland Municipal Stadium can be seen. And I just did a search on Google and saw this picture of the musical duo:

I remember seeing the old Munincipal Stadium in the opening credits! I still don't know why it was there.

I remember the series, but I had no memory of how long it lasted. I think initially NBC had some unusually high hopes for it, IIRC (of course they hope everything becomes a hit, but for some reason this seemed to get special treatment?).

The show originally aired from March 1-April 4, 1980. Two more unaired episodes showed up on the DVD set.

Default Yes...

...that picture you reproduced, 'Jim', is a gatefold cover from Mie & Kei's only American album, released in 1979 (which turned up in "bargain bins" a year or so later)- and the one I believe Fred Silverman heard, which influenced his decision to build a variety show around them without first checking to see if they could speak English. As I've previously mentioned, he promoted the hell out of "PINK LADY", focusing on the "glitz and glamour", the guest stars [LARRY HAGMAN! HUGH HEFNER! JERRY LEWIS! ALICE COOPER!! BLONDIE!! CHEAP TRICK!!!], and the girls in bikinis during the "Hot Tub" segments, hoping viewers wouldn't notice their inability to speak English....but viewers did. The ratings were so mediocre, the show quickly moved from Saturdays to Fridays...and off the air.

Incidentally, the show was produced by the Krofft Brothers, who initially produced "DONNY AND MARIE"; Silverman obviously thought their approach to variety, which worked so well with the Osmonds, would work wonders for "Pink Lady", conveniently forgetting they also produced "THE BRADY BUNCH VARIETY HOUR" for him at ABC in 1977, which lasted a little longer than "PINK LADY & JEFF".
