It Was a Thing on TV Tripleheader: Episodes 205, 206 & 207 - Musical Chairs/Too Many Cooks/Casino Royale 1954 TV Movie

First, it only lasted 19 weeks but 1975's Musical Chairs was a landmark television program, as it was the first game show with an African-American emcee, in Adam Wade.  It also had a fun theme song, a great cast of guests, and the cushy time slot after Match Game 75.  It was also recorded at The Ed Sullivan Theater!
 
Next, one of the most brilliant things on TV in the last decade and one of the most bizarre, Too Many Cooks aired in the dead of night on Adult Swim.  Within days, it was viral and repeated often.  We offer a live commentary while watching the show and get into details about some of the production, and what happened to some of the actors and actresses.
 
Finally, the 25th James Bond cinematic release hit theaters recently.  But would you believe there was a James Bond, er, Jimmy Bond to grace the small screen before Sean Connery?  In 1954, the CBS anthology series Climax! had an episode based on the Ian Fleming work Casino Royale.

Making Mt. Rushmore - Horror Film Icons & Horror Film Franchises (#25)

In the twenty-fifth episode of Making Mt. Rushmore, panelists Rocco Martone & Tim Capel join moderator Steve Riddle to discuss which Horror Film Icons deserve a place on their respective lists. Is Jason Voorhees a no-brainer? What about Freddy Krueger? Does Frankenstein’s Monster grab a spot? Does Michael Myers or Pinhead deserve a place? After that, they discuss which Horror Film Franchises will be part of that grouping. Can you argue that Friday The 13th shouldn’t get a spot? Will the Classic Universal Monsters be included? Is Romero’s “Dead” Franchise in the conversation? What about A Nightmare On Elm Street & Child’s Play?

It Was a Thing on TV Tripleheader: Episodes 203 & 204 + Minisode 13 - American Gladiators Knockoffs/MLB v. celebs softball from ‘67/Turn-On

This week It Was a Thing on TV brings to you plenty of competition along with a short look at one of the biggest bombs in TV history.
 
First, recently, word came out that American Gladiators is being rebooted...again.  By coincidence, we had this show slotted for this week in our schedule.  We talk about 4 shows which tried riding the coattails of the Gladiators--Knights and WarriorsBlade WarriorsBattledome, and Wild West Showdown.
 
Next, we go to the ballpark, as some of 1967's brightest Major League Baseball players went against celebrities back in the day on the softball diamond, with some very special celebrities handling the duties behind the mic and two legends acting as managers.
 
Finally, Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In was TV's most popular show in 1969.  The people behind it tried capitalizing on its popularity with a related show called Turn-On.  There were instant regrets, as ABC turned it off before the first episode aired in full.
