CBS' "The Talk" reunited the cast of "The Love Boat" on Tuesday (Nov. 5), and in addition to dressing like the iconic characters, the hosts asked the stars to reminisce on the surprise success of the series.
"I didn't even think we'd get through the pilot. Nobody thought it would go beyond that," Grandy says. "The critics hated it. They said it would sink like the Titanic. They put us on at 10 o'clock on a Saturday night which is normally a graveyard shift. And then we started beating shows like 'Kojak' and 'Carol Burnett.' And all of a sudden, this thing caught on."
Watch a clip of the interview here:
A "Love Boat" reunion is only days away. CBS announced that its morning show "The Talk" will feature the cast coming back together on Nov. 5.
That means everyone including Gavin MacLeod, Bernie Kopell, Ted Lange, Fred Grandy, Lauren Tewes and Jill Whelan will be on hand to discuss the show's legacy. "Love Boat" ran starting in 1977 and went off the air in 1988, though it was later revived with "Love Boat: The Next Wave" in 1998.
In addition to discussing the show, MacLeod will also be on hand to talk about his new book "This is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith & Life." Theme song singer Jack Jones will perform the single live for "The Talk's" studio audience.

A lot of people ask me, "Creepy, how did you first come to love horror movies so much?" Well, growing up in the Seventies, there was plenty to go around. There were TV classics like Gargoyles, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, and any number of TV Movies of the Week, and there was also...
There was also a ton of weird and quirky bits of monster-themed kids programming. Usually "The Munsters" and "The Land of the Lost" get all the love, and rightly so. They're absolute classics. That being said, we're gonna talk about some other things here. Things you may not have known even existed. For instance, were you aware that way before Venkmen, Spengler, Stantz and Zeddmore there was a whole other set of Ghostbusters? How about a different Monster Squad? Got your attention? Good. Sit back, relax, and get ready to soak up some lunacy as we revisit. »
