The show's title was supposed to be "Pink Lady and Jeff". But the group's managers insisted that the title be only "Pink Lady" and threatened to sue NBC if Jeff Altman was included. "Pink Lady and Jeff" was used in promos and the DVD box set. See more »
This was from the period when NBC was horrible and Fred Silverman was running the show (no pun intended). This from the man who help develop gems like "Three's Company" and "Laverne and Shirley" for ABC and beauties like "All in the Family" and "M*A*S*H" for CBS.
It baffled me that he went to NBC and came up with crap like this. How could you give a show to 2 women or anyone for that matter who could barely speak English??? I still remember both Kei Masuda and Mei Niemoto at the beginning of the show tell the audience who that night's guests will be. You could barely make out what they were saying and it was very painful to listen.
Jeff Altman as well; This had to set his career back 2-3 steps. I like his comedy, but even he couldn't save this show.
Every episode would always end with Mie and Kei say something to Jeff you couldn't understand, then they would remove their kimonos revealing the swimsuits they were wearing under it and would drag him fully dressed into the hot tub. It was one of the few funny things I can remember, but they did that every week and it got old fast.
Clearly, not one of television's best moments.
