Show Notes and Video Playlist: Episode 10-8: It's Garry Shandling's Show

*We hope you enjoy this week's podcast exploring one of the great shows of the Eighties, It's Garry Shandling's Show! Below is this week's video playlist, with promos, interviews, and even Garry on Make Me Laugh:

And remember, you can always visit our official YouTube channel for all of our past podcasts and episode-specific playlists for each one!

*It's Garry Shandling's Show ran for 4 seasons and 72 episodes on Showtime, 1986-1990. Fox picked it up in 1988 and aired edited episodes until 1990. Shout! Factory released the complete series on DVD.

*The Wil Shriner Show was a short-lived (1987-1988) syndicated daytime talk show.

*The Burns and Allen Show began as a radio program, then became The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show on CBS Television from 1950-1958.

*Shout-outs again to two books that offered great information about a show I still think is underappreciated: Laugh Lines by Alan Zweibel and It's Garry Shandling's Book by Judd Apatow.

*Go Go Goldblum premiered on Showtime March 4, 1988. You can hear the rest of that Friday night lineup on the episode, but here are a few notes about some of the other programs:

--Highwayman with Jocko and Sam Jones
--The Thorns with Kelly Bishop and Tony Roberts
--Sonny Spoon with Mario Van Peebles
--Brothers ran 115 episodes, 1984-1989, on Showtime.

Transylvania 6-5000 with Jeff Goldblum, Ed begley Jr., and Geena Davis, premiered in theaters November 1985, and the New World Pictures release actually made money, but it was savaged by critics.

*Goldblum and Davis were married from 1987 to 1991.

*Bernadette Birkett, who plays Jackie Shumacher on the show, has been married to George Wendt since 1978.

*Scott Nemec, who plays her son Grant, has been in TV production for years and was recently named President of Television at the Russo brothers' production shingle AGBO.
