    NBC (ended 1970)
    Welcome to The Ray Stevens Show Guide at TV.com. This variety series occurred during the summer of 1970 as a replacement for "The Andy Williams Show," which was canceled in 1971. One of the regular performers, "Mama" Cass Elliot, was a very successful singer who made many TV appearances from the 1960s until her untimely death in 1974. The United States First Telecast: June 20th, 1970 Last Telecast: August 8th, 1970 These episodes aired on Saturdays at 7:30PM This show was basically full of different sketches and musical performances by the cast. It was taped in Canada and aired in the US on NBC and in the UK on BBC. The show was originally a Canadian sketch series. But the series is perhaps most interesting in hindsight, affording an early view of the movie comedy superstar-to-be Steve Martin. The show produced 8 episodes, each about an hour long. It's a shame that the show only ran for the summer. Canada First Telecast: Unknown Last Telecast: Unknown The United Kingdom First Telecast: September 18th, 1970 Last Telecast: December 6th, 1970 There were 7 "editions" of the show in the UK, which aired on BBC-2 on Sundays at 7:25PM. Although this was only a short summer series, it was a landmark. Andy Williams' production company had had a deal with NBC to provide Andy's summer 1970 replacement series, and Canadian producers Alan Blye and Chris Beard worked through their friend, CTV Network President Murray Chercover, to have the one-hour Ray Stevens Show produced in Canada. Stevens had had several hit novelty records – Ahab the Arab, Gitarzan and Harry The Hairy Ape among them. He added a new hit with the show's theme song, Everything Is Beautiful, sung by a children's chorus as the opening titles were revealed as a fence was painted blue and chromakey did the rest. British singer Lulu, American comedian Steve Martin and former Mamas and Papas singer Cass Elliot were among the regulars, along with the comedy talents of Canadians Billy Van and Carol Robinson. Jimmy Dale led the all-Canadian orchestra, and Doug Riley's Dr. Music vocal group was also much in evidence. Produced at CTV's Toronto affiliate CFTO, the Ray Stevens Show debuted on Saturday, June 20, 1970 on CTV and NBC, and ran through to August 8th. Singer-composer-comedian-impressionist Ray Stevens starred in this summer replacement for The Andy Williams Show. Ray, who was a frequent guest on Andy's show, was featured in production numbers and comedy skits in this summer program, which was taped in Toronto. The skits tended to be very broad and often verged on the physical violence associated with Mack Sennett slapstick.

    NBC (ended 1978)
    This sitcoms was less than successful--not only for its twisted plot outline, but for its crazy characters. Who's Watching the Kids? was a fun, kids sitcom--set in Las Vegas, Nevada--about two kids... Frankie Vitola (15) and Melissa Turner (9), who lived with their two young adult sisters, who worked both as night parents, and as daytime showgirls at the third-rate local nightspot, Club Sand Pile. Angie was Frankie's sister, and Stacy was Melissa's. Since the girls could basically be tending to their siblings at night, their neighbor, Larry, worked at KVGS as a news anchorman--was asked to please "watch the kids" during the daytime. Mitzi, the emcee at the club, was also the landlord of everyone. Bert Gunkel was Larry's clutsy cameraman, whom also lived in the apartment building and helped Larry watch the kids, and Memphis was the main attraction of Club Sand Pile.moreless

    The Space Sentinels

    The Space Sentinels

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1978)
    Three young humans were taken from Earth thousands of years ago. On an advanced alien planet, they were imbued with special powers and trained to defend and protect the Earth and its surrounding space. Returned to Earth in modern times, they act as superheroes, based in a spacecraft which is normally hidden inside the caldera of a dormant volcano. The trio includes Astraea, an African woman who has the power to assume the form of any animal. Hercules is a cave man (originally barechested in a loin cloth) who has super-strength. Mercury is a Chinese man given super-speed. All three were given rocket belts for flight and they're supervised, advised and dispatched by a sentient supercomputer on their ship, Sentinel One, who appears in the form of a floating disembodied head (similar to but pre-dating the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers). Completing the list of characters was a small robot, Maintenance Operator, usually called "MO" (pronounced Moe). Able to hover and fly and equipped with four arms and two legs, MO was responsible for the repair and maintenance of the ship and is infatuated with Astraea. The show's producers say his resemblance to the robots in the movie Silent Running was intentional. The show's main cast reflected the various races of the main characters. African-American Dee Timberlake and Korean-American Evan Kim joined George DiCenzo as the voices behind the cels. The show concept has been compared to the Green Lantern Corps from the Green Lantern comic books published by DC comics. The show was originally called The Young Sentinels, but NBC thought the name was too generic, leading to a title change late in the season that emphasized their space background. However, because all episodes had already been produced, dialog throughout the series refers to them as Young Sentinels. For the 2006 DVD release, all of the episodes were given the revised Space Sentinels opening title sequence rather than the original that the earlier episodes had.moreless

    NBC (ended 1972)
    In a 2004 interview Don Adams described his 1971 creation The Partners as having been Lethal Weapon before there was Lethal Weapon. The series centered on the exploits of a pair of bumbling police detectives, Lennie Crooke and George Robinson - one white, one black. Don Adams himself played Crooke while Oscar nominee Rupert Crosse was cast as Robinson. Other regular characters were their volatile boss Captain Andrews, played by John Doucette, and his punctilious assistant (and Lennie's nemesis) Sgt Higgenbottom, played by Dick Van Patten. The recurring role of compulsive confessor Freddie Butler was played by Don Adams's cousin Robert Karvelas. Adams had intended to use the show as a vehicle for exploring serious social issues but the studio and network insisted on a safer approach thereby condemning it to being dismissed as a copy of Get Smart, the 1965-70 series in which Adams had portrayed Maxwell Smart, a bumbing secret agent. The Partners was cancelled after only 20 episodes had been produced having been soundly beaten in the ratings by the biting All In The Family, suggesting that Adams's original vision had been the correct one. Made by Universal Studios in association with 'don/lee productions' Broadcast History: Sep 1971 - Jan 1972 NBC Sat 8:00-8:30 Jul 1972 - Sep 1972 NBC Fri 8:00-8:30 20 Color Episodes On Film A TV movie, "Confessions of a Top Crimebuster", was compiled from episodes of the series.moreless
