Let's put on a show!

As a kid, I always loved it when sitcoms got so desperate for a storyline that they pulled out the old "talent show" trope.

Which was your favorite?

What the hell was a big ship model TA anyway?

I never got that.

It's a makeshift model TA and it's a car I guess.

I wish DL had more Designing Women threads.

With darlings like you, R7, EVERY thread can be made into a Designing Women thread, instantly!

Just add sap and stir.

I like that episode of "Designing Women" where the girls were lip-synching as the Supremes to Diana Ross' solo song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and Suzanne tried to join in in full blackface.

The alternate "let's put on a show" episode of The Brady Bunch is the one where they perform Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

What about the "Eight Is Enough" talent show where Grant Goodeve debuted the now-famous theme song? Dame Betty Buckley also sang and I think Dick Van Patten and Adam Rich did the "Who's On First?" bit.

The Dick Van Dyke show owns this thread.

I LOVE LUCY preceded Dick Van Dyke and they put on more shows (with or without Ricky's nightclub act) than anyone.

The Lucy Show and the execrable Main Street USA two-parter.

Joan Crawford going to the supermarket.

Talk about a show to end all shows!

Gilligan's Island had some great ones but the only one I can remember is the one with the Beatles knockoff group and the Honey Bees.

Good Times owns this thread and isn't even in the poll. Fail.

They did it regularly on the Britcom "Are You Being Served?"

The Brady Bunch also put a Thanksgiving show.

Not to mention the high school shows where Marcia performed with Carol and Greg performed with Mike.

Doesn't "The Little Rascals" own this thread?

R17, how could you forget Harold Hecuba's monumental musical adaption of "Hamlet" with the music of "Carmen"?
