Remember The Summer Replacement Series?
19 June 2002 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Back in the old days before cable TV, the big three networks would give some of their regular season series shows the summer off. This was a good chance for shows to be presented to the public that might be picked up for the fall, when the new shows would start. Some might get the pick-up, and some wouldn't. Monty Hall had a summer show, as did the mime couple of Sheilds and Yarnell. Mr. Hall's was not picked up, theirs was, but died in the regular 1977-1978 season.

The Ken Berry WOW Show was a summer replacement variety show that featured the usual 1970's brand of variety show staples. Ken's relaxed and good natured delivery made the show easy on the eyes and little music, a little dancing, and comedy skits were tossed in as well. AND Terri Garr, too, no less! Being only eleven, I guess I didn't notice her good looks at the time, and I'd forgotten that she was even a cast member. Maybe if I'd been older.....

Ken even made a joking plea to the audience to save the show, by sending in money to the network to save it, but it passed into warm memory at the end of the summer of 1972.
