Storyline

Debbie Thompson was an ordinary housewife who wanted desperately to become a newspaper reporter. Her husband Jim was a well-known sportswriter for the Los Angeles Sun, and Debbie's schemes and plans to build her own career constantly put him on the spot. The resemblance to "I Love Lucy" isn't coincidental, since this show was produced by "Lucy" writer Jess Oppenheimer. Debbie's sister Charlotte was Debbie's sidekick in her nutty plans, while brother-in-law Bob remained chagrined. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

A woman with convictions!
2 August 2002 | by kbkrdh1See all my reviews

What I remember about "The Debbie Reynolds Show" is that the first sponsor for the show was a cigarette company. Ms. Reynolds felt that cigarettes were NOT the way to promote a family show, and she threatened to quit rather than give in to the sponsors. The powers that be gave in to her demands, and I think Hunts Catsup sponsored the show. I never forgot that. She was a woman of convictions and I admired her for it.
