Bailey Quarters Gets Dunked!
That short video of Jan Smithers in the dunking booth really shows off her beautiful body on "The Battle of The Network Stars". Isn't that Howard Cossell doing the play-by-play?
Anyway, re-watching this sitcom and really forgotten just how good it actually was, especially Season 1. Hard to believe this show was almost cancelled. That first episode of the format change is classic, along with the Turkey drop episode and the final one of S1 where Venus and Johnny get drunk on the air with the state trooper.
There is a drop off in some of the episodes after the initial season, but it is still much better than the majority of comedy sitcoms out there today.
I’m in Season 3 right now and just watched the Loni Anderson in the bathing suit episode where the photographer takes nudes of her changing and they break into the studio to try and retrieve them. Even after S1, there's a lot of classic episodes and didn’t realize there were 90 of these made in the original series. I notice someone also made a porno about the show.
Where do you rank this comedy series in your all time list of comedy sitcom favorites and what are some of your favorite episodes, quotes …
“Time for more music and Les(s) …. Nessman!”
"Red Wigglers — the Cadillac of worms!”
Oh, and who you got: Jennifer (Loni Anderson) or Bailey (Jan Smithers)?
