Storyline

Long running variety show, featuring the brother-sister singing duo of Donny and Marie Osmond. The first season also featured all of the Osmond families, but Donny and Marie were obviously the most popular of the bunch so the rest were phased into occasional appearances.

Trivia

Based on the initial success of the series, the Osmond family constructed a multi-million dollar TV studio facility in their hometown of Provo, Utah, and moved production of the series there for its final season. The move (along with changes to the show's format) proved unsuccessful and the series was soon cancelled. See more »

Oh my G-d! I'm gonna puked
1 November 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Talk about purple socks and disco shirts from that decade,please gimme a break! This variety show was one of the worst outta the bunch from the 1970's which ABC-TV showed on Friday nights since this was pure adulterated garbage. Marie sings a little bit of country,and Donnie does rock and roll songs? Yes,it may have been the first brother and sister variety show during that time,but some of scenes and mostly the segments they did made me puked.
