Groovy Flashback: Variety (July-August 1979)

From: Deep Dish
 When I was fifteen, I kept a scrapbook of articles, reviews, etc., from Variety for almost six months (July 1979 to January 1980) - yes, I was a pop culture enthusiast even back then. And now almost 38 years later, I thought it would be fun to share some of those collected clippings in a series of posts:

 July 25, 1979

 August 1, 1979

Eight is Enough ran for five seasons (1977-81) on ABC
The Life and Times of Eddie Roberts (aka L.A.T.E.R.) was a 1980 syndicated soap opera spoof that ran for 65 episodes.

 The Amityville Horror was the second-highest-grossing film of 1979 in the U.S. (Kramer vs. Kramer was #1).

 August 8, 1979

Here is what happened to the eight NBC series mentioned in the following article:

The Cheap Detective: Only a pilot episode was filmed.

The Facts of Life: It debuted on August 24, 1979, and ran for nine seasons.

Goodbye Girl (aka Goodbye Doesn't Mean Forever): Three pilots were filmed (two with Karen Valentine, one with JoBeth Williams).

Good Time Harry: It ran for seven episodes in July-September 1980.

It Takes Two (aka Characters): Only a pilot episode was filmed.

The Sharon Gless Project: No pilot was ever filmed.

Skag: The drama ran for six episodes (including a 3-hour pilot) in January-February 1980.

United States: The half-hour dramedy starring Beau Bridges and Helen Shaver ran for seven episodes in March-April 1980 (13 episodes were filmed).

Unfortunately, for Farrah Fawcett, Sunburn was a box office flop, earning only $2.4 million (her previous film, 1978's Somebody Killed Her Husband, earned $6.1 million).

 Gilda Radner - Live From New York ran for 52 performances on Broadway.

August 22, 1979

Carol Burnett & Company ran for four episodes on ABC in August-September 1979.

 The Muppet Show aired in syndication from 1976 to 1981.
