The Julie Andrews Hour

Show Summary

"Stylish," "Classy," "Imaginative" and "Inventive" are just some of the adjectives critics used to describe this lavish musical variety show when it made its auspicious television debut. British impresario Sir Lew Grade had tried for three years to woo box-office superstar Julie Andrews and get her to commit to a weekly television series. When she finally agreed in 1972, "THE JULIE ANDREWS HOUR" premiered to great critical acclaim and a passionate and very loyal audience. Every week, with the help of popular guest stars, brilliantly staged production numbers and a top rate production team; Julie hosted a delightful and often very diversified variety hour. Early on, ABC execs were mystified about the show's low ratings. Certainly the 10 p.m. time slot was a bit too late for many of Julie's family based fans. In January the show was moved to an early Saturday night timeslot, but the move was simply too late. Without the fall season blitz of publicity and the luxury of time, the show was unable to build enough momentum and score a larger audience share. After ABC cancelled the program, the show went on to sweep the 25th Annual Emmy Awards. Winning in 7 categories, more than any other variety show that year. Emmy wins included: Outstanding Variety Musical Series awarded to Julie Andrews and producer Nick Vanoff, Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Variety of Music to Director Bill Davis, and 5 other technical awards: Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction or Scenic Design, Outstanding Lighting Design, Outstanding Costume Design, Outstanding Video Tape Editing and Outstanding Technical Direction and Electronic Camerawork.moreless
