A 1980 promo spot for the NBC series “Pink Lady and Jeff”. Oddly enough it was not the ratings-bonanza the network had hoped for.
i heard this show was shit according to tv gide but i must say it looks good if you go by the sumo lol
The girls were cute, but the show sucked.
I had almost forgotten about this until I saw Jeff Altman on Letterman this evening. It was a good kind of bad show.
Pink Lady & George Takei would have been an awesome show
This show looks like a dream I once had after taking too much NyQuil.
there is a book “BAD TV” that talks about this and it is on dvd. Good show but doesnt make any sense. you need to read the book about it…
Thanks for the info, I don’t know much about Pink Lady
Have you heard of the Candies, by chance?
@gerryono Pink Lady did a song called “Pink Typhoon (In The Navy)” which borrowed heavily from In The Navy. I bet that’s the reason for the background music.
I thought I was the only one who watched this show. I only watched it because Jeff Altman resembled my math teacher who I had a crush on at the time. lol
In the Navy=background music?
The only problem (besides the “slapdash” way the show was put together and the bad ratings) was that Mie and Kei could not speak or understand a word of English. They had to learn their “patter” and “funny lines” phonetically. NBC executive Fred Silverman, who “discovered” Pink Lady, and insisted they could become another “Sonny & Cher” or “Donny & Marie” [his previous successes on other networks], fervently hoped that viewers wouldn’t notice the flaws. After six weeks, they did.
Happy 30th anniversary, Pink Lady Show!
Man I remember watching Pink Lady & Jeff ever week when it came on NBC. Those ladies were freakin’ hot. I was disappointed when it was cancelled.
Long Live Pink Lady!!!
Those ladies are cute.
