The reviews for Down To Earth on imdb all say "I'm the only one who remembers it." It's true, the show aired 110 episodes and I have no memory of it at all. It was co-created by Sam Harris from Star Search, who you may remember is gay. It stars the gay Darrin from Bewitched, and for the last 3 years featured Rip Taylor in a supporting role, glitter and all.

This is weird because the song itself is actually quite good (and was a hit) but the show was disastrously bad.

I agree the worst ever was "Love Sidney" because it was from during the very brief period when sitcoms for some insane reason would have their stars sing the theme song.
The other most horrific instance of this bizarre phenomenon was the original version of the "Facts of life" theme song. Guess who sang the solo part.
|by Anonymous||reply 20||06/22/2013|
In the "Love Sidney" clip, I'm fascinated by how horrible Swoosie Kurtz's voice is. She sounds like the really weird lady in every church choir whose voice is embarrassingly louder than anyone else's (and has far more vibrato than is humanly possible).
|by Anonymous||reply 21||06/22/2013|
R21, my sister and I always called the loud, wobbly soprano in our church's choir "The Chicken Lady." She often performed solos that would leave us squirming to stifle our laughter.
"We Got It Made" has an insistent disco theme song. Quite cynical of NBC to open a sit-com with a shot of a woman's breasts, panning up to show her face only after we all got a good look at her tits. Tom Villard was adorable. He was one of the first celebrities with AIDS to speak publicly about his plight.

My Two Dads just short circuits my brain in 2013. I remember back when it aired and even then I thought those two dudes were gay. It was way more homo "suggestive" to me than even Full House (housefull of single men raising kids). The whole premise is homoPHOBIC now, though.

Agreed, R27. Sadly, Reiser and Evigan have more chemistry together than Rannells and Bartha or Stonestreet and Ferguson... It makes 'The New Normal' and 'Modern Family' that much more depressing.

I loved "Down To Earth" when I was a kid. It aired on TBS and back then everything started 5 minutes later than on network TV. 7:05am, 11:35pm, etc...
I had a kid crush on David Kauffman as the older brother and I didn't like Kyle...even then. She looked weird. Adored Kim, though. She did Devil Dog: Hound of Hell.
Anyways, Ole Rip would run around throwing glitter, he was Ethel the angel's guardian or case worker or something. She had another one, too... played by Ronnie Schnell.
I wish they'd put it out on DVD. It was no Bewitched or Jeannie, but was still fun.

Don't forget these bitches! Pink Lady and Jeff lasted 5 weeks back in 1980. The scary thing is how clearly I remember watching the show and crowing about how awful it was with my cousins.

That "Small Wonder" clip reminded me of the mother's fashions for that show. Were those like one-piece full-body pantsuits she would wear with a belt in the middle? And how did she get in and out of them?
Also, if your goal is to make your robot daughter inconspicuous and just have her seem like any normal kid, then why would you dress her in a 19th-century pinafore?

R38, I could have written your post! I had a huge crush on Kaufman. I moved to Los Angeles in 2000 and saw him in a Souplantation with his family not long after I got there. He had the tired, disheveled look of a new parent. Kind of killed the crush.
I think "Down To Earth" aired mostly in the early mornings which may be why few people remember it. I remember it being on as we got ready for school if we weren't watching Bozo on WGN.

Wonder what the last time a TV theme was a radio hit - I am guessing Friends. Kind of sad how the TV theme songs, some of which really became part of pop culture are for the most part a thing of the past (although listening to some of these, maybe not completely a bad thing).
The late seventies and 80's really liked to have precocious children that would not be found anywhere in the real world. Ellen Travolta also seemed to be in a lot of these credits.

I understand Tom was in a relationship when he passed away so I was glad to hear he had someone there for him. I saw him on Entertainment Tonight unexpectedly where he talked about his story. I remember that night, walking out the front door and just pacing around the block. He did an Advocate interview that kind of turned me off. It didn't sound like him. But he was an actor. Anyone who knew him loved him. He lived in Silver Lake when I knew him and he had those little pink and yellow marshmallow chicks nailed to his wall. He got me out of disco music and into New Wave by playing The Talking Heads. Slowly, he let me know that I was only one in a few other people he was seeing. He described some of the things they did together, in the shower. I balked. I still remember the night he came up to my apartment. We weren't really supposed to, but we said goodbye. He had a good heart, and kind of an experimental mind. He would have had a long career. He did it effortlessly. RIP.

Not to derail the thread but how about a great one, and one that could never be done today, "Open All Night", which completely tells the story of the show. Notable for the late Sam Whipple who gave one of the greatest sitcom performances ever as the space cadet son, Terry. It's believed Sean Penn was heavily influenced by Whipple's performance when he created Spicolli. Fuck that shit, Penn totally ripped the character off.

R135 wasn't there a longer version of the Filthy Rich credits? I remember more of a narrative.

Not a bad song, it that awkward hug and smile at the end. You know they hated each other .

I'm surprised that some think the Filthy Rich theme is horrifying. I thought most considered it a hokey classic - not quite at It's A Living level, but up there. I like it.

Herman's Head had one of the worst premises ever, but I watched it regularly. Herman was a hottie!

I F'LOVED Herman's Head! I used to think Hank Azaria was so hot on that show. William "Herman" Ragsdale was in the abominable "Mannequin 2", but he is probably best known for his role as Charley in "Fright Night".

Ragsdale had a lengthy featured role on "Justified" as Raylan's ex-wife's new husband.

Holy shit R128. I can't tell you how long I've been looking for that theme song! I could always remember the last line, but not the entire song.

R15 and R16, you can go to hell! That "Gloria" theme song is the best ear worm going!
I've posted before that the show was causally a minor hit, ranking in the top twenty for the season. But for some reason it wasn't renewed. Based on the number of average weekly viewers, it would actually be in the top 3-4 shows in today's ratings.

Whoa! It seems the internet has been scrubbed of any mention of his personal life. His Wiki page even has a disclaimer that any information must be carefully sourced or it will be removed as potentially libelous.

The theme song to "Perfect Strangers".
"Standing tall on the wings of my dreams..." WTF??

R152 - I remember reading Gloria got cancelled more due to the ratings of Archie Bunker's Place. Archie's ratings were at cancellation, and for some reason they felt it would be disrespectful to O'Connor to cancel his show and leave Gloria on the air.

If you like the song, you'll love David Naughton's performance of it on the Merv Griffin show.

My God, Naughton looks like he would be a fun little fuck. Game for anything. Any stories on him?

I don't know ANY of these songs or tv shows. I never really watched tv much when I had a tv, and haven't had one since 1982. I'm not convinced that the majority of these aren't spoofs! They are really bad!
