Penny Marshall (October 15, 1943-December 17, 2018)

Actress, director and producer Penny Marshall has died at the age of 75. Born Carole Marshall, she grew up in the Bronx. She played Laverne DeFazio on the Happy Days spinof "Lfaverne & Shirley", which aired for eight seasons from 1976 to 1983. Her brother was the late director, producer and writer Garry Marshall. Ms. Marshall shattered records as a top-grossing female director in Hollywood, directing Tom Hanks films "Big" and "A League of Their Own" as well as comedy "Jumpin’ Jack Flash" in 1986 with Whoopi Goldberg. She was the first wife of actor and director Rob Reiner. Ms. Marshall died in her Hollywood Hills home on Monday night from complications from diabetes, her publicist Michelle Bega told The Hollywood Reporter. She was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer in 2009.

Just an FYI, apparently TV execs thought people would "get confused" if a show was still on network and in syndication, so, they did these "weird" titles for that reason. "Happy Days" was "Happy Days Again" in syndication.

This was apparently fairly common: http://boards.radio-info.com/smf/index.php?topic=153464.0

I vaguely remember this name in syndication and very clearly remember "Happy Days Again". I remember asking my mom why Happy Days had a different name during the day.

Don't forget "Three's Company Too" instead of "Three's Company." The rename to "CHiPs Patrol" was stupid, because it technically became "California Highway Patrol patrol ...

"Three's Company Too" is the retitled version of "Three's a Crowd," which was the spin-off/continuation of "Three's Company." In 1979 when "All in the Family" went into syndication, the program continued as "Archie Bunker's Place" on CBS.

And when Dragnet returned in Color, the new episodes were called Dragnet 19xx (1967, 1968, 1969, 1970), to separate the new shows from the 1950s B&W Dragnet.

Emergency!'s rerun title was screwed up - the producer wanted to save a few bucks so instead of redoing the title segment, they just optically printed "One" under the title so it read Emergency! One...

Oh - don't forget Jeff's Collie - Lassie.

Phantom, I believe the change of name to "Archie Bunker's Place" was more around that they killed off Edith and Archie bought and ran a bar, more than anything to do with syndication.

Afdave, Archie bought the bar two seasons before "All in the Family" ended, and Edith died at the start of season 2 of "Archie Bunker's Place." I concede the bar and restaurant generated more storylines than Archie's homelife around that time. I leave it to TV historians on whether "Archie Bunker's Place" was a spinoff or a continuation of "All in the Family." A lot of long running programs made significant changes over the years that the shows' titles could have changed.

After Cindy Williams' firing in 1982, the show really became Laverne & Company. (The first season's opening titles listed the show as "Laverne De Fazio and Shirley Feeney.")

He will be missed.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - Off the Wall (Opening & Break, 1977) by FieldGal44 on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at 7:04pm CT

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.

The 1977-78 DePaul team was led by the mighty Dave Corzine, who went pro after that season and, of course, would spend seven years with the Bulls.

I ate way too much Quaker instant oatmeal growing up. The raisins & spice was my favorite.

Good Lord, this is not the way to sell a radio station. As Fuzzy says, utterly generic, not to mention redundant ("old great classics"). What genre are they selling?? Plus, the camera is right in his face like an '80s PSA, and he sounds like he's hawking something on a street corner. I'm surprised he didn't start by saying "Psst! Hey, kid!"
