Storyline

Long running variety show, featuring the brother-sister singing duo of Donny and Marie Osmond. The first season also featured all of the Osmond families, but Donny and Marie were obviously the most popular of the bunch so the rest were phased into occasional appearances.

Trivia

During the course of the show, Donny became romantically involved and subsequently married. As a result, his appeal to female viewers dropped dramatically resulting in a huge ratings drop. At the same time, variety shows were on the decline, and at the time of its cancellation, the show was the last remaining regular prime time variety series. See more »

Purple Socks and Sparkling Teeth
14 December 2000 | by hillariSee all my reviews

Donny and Marie Osmond were the first brother and sister to host a variety show. Critics picked on the duo the whole time they were on the air. It wasn't great art, but it was fun, wholesome entertainment for an hour on Friday nights. Donny and Marie, like all variety shows, was expensive to put on every week, and that, along with changing tastes, eventually drove the show off the airwaves. Sometimes Nick-At-Nite will show reruns of it.
