Cancelled to save Laverne and Shirley
27 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Many people don't know the reason why this excellent and popular sitcom was cancelled. It got top ten ratings when it was scheduled after "Happy Days" on Tuesday nights, when Laverne and Shirley was moved from that same time slot to Thursdays. By the end of the season, "Laverne and Shirley" was doing horribly in it's new Thursday night slot and was almost cancelled. So, ABC returned "Laverne and Shirley " to it's Tuesday night slot with great success. Only ABC moved "Angie" around to different nights where it lost it's ratings lead in and dropped to the bottom of the ratings and was cancelled. In 1985, 5 years after it's cancellation, ABC aired the show's re-runs at 10AM weekdays, and had great success. It later appeared in syndication. Proof this show deserved a chance. If you wanna help get this under-rated classic show released onto DVD, we gotta convince paramount to do it!!
