Rebecca and Amy are a pair of sexy young television reporters working for a respected "60 Minutes"-like newsmagazine. Receiving their story assignments from New York producer Francis Casey, the girls travel across the country in their specially equipped van solving crimes, reporting the news, and getting involved in the lives of others. Jason Cook was the host of the show, "The American Report". Written by

I remember all the hype given the show. Okay - if you don't want to call it a "Charlie's Angels ripoff," you must at least acknowledge that the show would not have been greenlighted were it not for "Jiggle TV." I remember seeing the promo ad in TV Guide (is that even sold anymore?), with the main characters posed to look vibrant, girly-sexy and "commercial." Well - I'm GAY so of course I was into the whole "glamour-girls-on-an-adventure" show.
Well, the show may have been better-written, better-plotted than "Charlie's Angels," but it was nowhere as much fun.
That's why these "American Girls" are but a forgotten footnote in the history of 80s TV.
