Where The Action Is

Show Summary

Welcome to the Where The Action Is guide at tv.com.
In 1963, AMERICAN BANDSTAND left the weekday shift for Saturday afternoons. Two years later (1965), Dick Clark created a new spin-off for ABC called Where The Action Is, a half-hour rock 'n' roll show featuring the hits of the day.
Where The Action Is took viewers to various locations across the US. In addition to Stateside locations, segments were also taped in Canada, Britain and Japan. One frequent location was Malibu Beach in Malibu, CA, where many of the summer shows were shot. Bear Mountain Ski Resort in Bear Mountain, CA was the frequent site for the the winter and holiday shows.
Steve Alaimo and Linda Scott were the original hosts. By 1966, Paul Revere and the Raiders, the house band, took over the hosting duties. Other series regulars included Keith Allison, Tina Mason and Jimmy Hubbard. The Action Kids was the series' dance troupe.
Where The Action Is was in black and white during its original ABC run. It was followed by two short-lived remakes (in 1973 and 1985). In 1987, CBS-TV aired "Keep on Cruisin'," another series following in the footsteps of "Action".
