And somehow America was then capable of having a ratings juggernaut that developed into one of the most hilarious, poignant and challenging comedy series to ever grace network television, all from the still rare perspective of a working class woman.

CBS hires a bunch of Canadians to reboot Love, American Style

26 August 2013 11:32 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

After sending the nation into its moral tailspin with all its cavalier joking about birth control, the early-'70s series Love, American Style is getting a reboot at CBS, which can—much like loose women on the pill—just do whatever it wants, regardless of the consequence. Deadline reports that this new, contemporary version will not have the same anthology structure as the original, where unconnected vignettes about modern romance commingled in the swingin’, free love spirit of the era, giving birth to numerous illegitimate children (like Happy Days and Wait Till Your Father Gets Home) and spreading God knows »
