The Leslie Uggams Show

Show Summary

The Leslie Uggams Show took over the time slot of the controversial--and cancelled--Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. This was the first variety show headed by an African-American since The Nat "King" Cole Show in the 1950s. The series boasted an integrated cast and crew which was, and still is, a rarity in network television.
A memorable feature of the series was a recurring sketch called "Sugar Hill" about a blue-collar family. Uggams and her construction worker husband lived with her mom, brother and hippie sister.
Tossed against Bonanza, the show didn't stand much of a ratings chance. It aired for half of a season, before being replaced by The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour.
