Little-remembered series
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wasn't a flop, as the previous poster suggested. It was a "summer replacement series"--back when the Big Three networks had no competition and needed to give their star series/stars an off-season to relax in. So there were numerous short-lived summer series like this one (and others starring pop acts, like Jim Stafford) that were never intended to last more than a few weeks.

I was a big adolescent fan of Ms. Reddy at the time, so I ate it up. All I remember now is that it pretty much recycled the songs from her albums up to that point (lip-synched for the camera), and not much else. I liked her straightforward singing and personality...I don't remember much of the filigree, like comedy sketches or guest stars. I was mostly struck at the time by the fact that the songs she sang were all ones I already knew. I was kind of surprised that they didn't come up with any new musical material. But I guess part of its being a "summer replacement series" was that it was cheap--they could just milk a currently-popular chart artist like Reddy or Tony Orlando & Dawn without actually funding any new recordings.
