Charlie's Angels was in the top ten for its first two seasons: 1976 - 1977 #5, 1977 - 1978 #4 competing in a three way tie with 60 Minutes (1968) and All in the Family (1971). Midway through Season 3, when Kate Jackson announced her impending departure, the show slipped out of the top ten to #12. When Shelley Hack became Jackson's replacement, the ratings dropped even further to #20. The ratings slide continued and Hack was let go. Tanya Roberts was hired to replace Hack, but the ratings didn't improve; plummeting to an abysmal #59. The show never recovered and was canceled at the end of its fifth season. See more »
For those of you not around for it's original run, Charlie's Angels was not just a hit TV show, it was a phenomenon. Every magazine and rag magazine had a picture of "The Angels" on their covers. Incredibly popular, it all came down to Farrah and her 70's fly away hair, her dazzling toothy smile, her skateboarding pose wearing Addia's, her shampoo, her toothpaste, THE bathing suit poster of the century, and then she was gone. Exiting after only one season Charlie's Angels never was the same again. Bolstered by Jill's kid sister, Kris (Cheryl Ladd) and then others, Charlie's Angels never again climbed to the heights of sheer madness of its first season. Owing its popularity to episodes such as "Angels in Chains" and "Angels on Wheels," it fulfilled many a preadolescence male's fantasy and "Jiggle TV" was born. It may be a period piece today but it was a product of the fun, wacky 1970's that gave it birth.
