Did You Know?


Alan Thicke had hosted a very popular Canadian talk show for many years when he was invited to host this series, which was one of the first serious attempts to beat "The Tonight Show" at its own game. The series received so much extensive pre-publicity that it led some critics to nickname the show "Sick of the Hype". The Tonight Show went on the offensive, warning performers that an appearance on Thicke's show would result in them not being invited to appear on Tonight. Ultimately, Thicke of the Night was an expensive and embarrassing failure for the network. See more »

I remember it, anyway. I'm not sure whether or not Chloe Webb was the one who did this sketch on the show, but I recall an actress doing a recurring role as a street walker being interviewed. She would describe herself to the interviewer as "a working girl" and he would ask "Oh really? What kind of work do you do?" She would then give him a devastating are-you-for-real look that was hilarious. (Sorry, no one could put across this payoff without a picture.) Guests included Liza Minelli and, I think Michael Sembello (hit song "Maniac"). Since they were kept from getting many big celebrities, they tried making their own such as Joy Browne, then a local radio-talk-show-host-psychologist, but more qualified than "Dr." Laura or Joyce Brothers. Another guest was Thicke's wife-at-the-time, Gloria Loring, who was a soap actress, lovely singer and singular beauty.
