Probably the last real gasp for the American variety show. What was the staple of TV viewing in the 60's and 70's had begun a slow descent, long before the multi-talented Ms. Parton took to the airwaves. it seemed like anybody WHO was anybody had a variety show. Sonny and Cher, Carol Burnett, any just about any warm body that could introduce an act, or make an audience laugh, had their own variety show. But with the onset of the 70's Fred Silverman sit-com's, the genre was going out of style. The lowest point would have to be the infamous "Pink Lady and Jeff" show, and commentary on THAT is probably better suited on their page, here at IMDB.com.
It wasn't for a lack of trying that "DOLLY" faded, as a good deal of work seemed to go into this show. Quality acts, just look at the run of guests she had, and Ms. Parton's happy nature drove the program for it's short but memorable run.
Had it started in 1977, instead of 1987, it might have had longer legs.
And of course, those red blooded American males of us who watched the show, probably were NOT tuning in just to hear her sing, she was(IS) a very beautiful lady to look at.
