Top Ten #165

1) President's Day Weekend: Let's honor the man who led all 3 major networks at various times: BOTNS favorite Fred Silverman.

2) The Honeymooners Valentine Special: I celebrated the holiday with this 1978 comedy special. Yes, everyone is older and a little slower, but it's still the 'Mooners. Plus, unlike the Color Honeymooners of the Sixties, Audrey Meadows is onboard. The 1970s specials have an appeal the 1960s episodes don't quite offer, at least in my book.

3) Code Red: Crackle continues to run away with the streaming wars. Its latest addition is this 1981 Irwin Allen firehouse drama starring Adam Rich and Lorne Greene. Greene is a station chief who, I assume, puts out fires started by Rich.

4) Marla Gibbs: Gibbs is featured in an extensive Hollywood Reporter profile/interview. Read it, or she'll threaten to quit. Or at least sass you.

5) One of the Boys: After we talked about the show here on the site, a YouTube account posted many of the episodes. I'm not saying there is any correlation, of course. Just in case, anyone have Aloha Paradise?

6) Sandy Duncan: Happy birthday to someone so upbeat and positive, even Valerie Harper must have sent her a card each year.

7) Rhoda: Decades has a marathon of the show this weekend. It goes right up to the point when Sandy Sandy Duncan took over and it became Rhoda's Family.

8) The Adventures of Nick Carter: Debuting 50 years ago tonight on ABC, this 1972 TV pilot movie stars Robert Conrad, Broderick Crawford, and Shelley Winters set in 1912 New York City!

9) National Love Your Pet Day: Why not show your pet your love by serving some Alpo? Here's Chief Lorne Greene to explain:

10) How the West Was Won: Tubi TV recently added this 1970s series. Didn't Thomas Jefferson win it in a crooked card game?
