Vote for the Next Television Obscurities Article

Again, I apologize for being a little late putting the new poll online. Take a moment to vote for the first of the two new articles I’ll be writing next month. Here are the topics for July:

Save Our Show Campaigns Prior to Star Trek – Everyone knows how Star Trek was saved from cancellation by fan letters. The very first example of viewers successfully staging a “save our show” campaign may have occurred in 1951, however, with a CBS kid’s show. It wasn’t just network shows that elicited responses from viewers. In 1959, viewers wrote to station WNTA en masse in support of The Play of the Week.

Writing to the Networks in the Sixties – Learn all about how ABC, CBS and NBC handled viewer mail in the 1960s. Who was writing, what did they want and what did the networks think?

“Nancy” – This sitcom ran for all of 17 episodes during the 1970-1971 season. Renne Jarrett starred as Nancy Smith, the daughter of the President of the United States of America who, in the first episode, falls for Adam Hudson, a veterinarian. The two are forced to carry on their romance under the watchful eyes of Nancy’s ever-present guardian, Adam’s uncle, secret service agents and the news media. The series was created by Sidney Sheldon.

  1. Oddly enough, I’m putting my vote in for Nancy. I remember the show being on back then, but I only watched one episode. There was also a paperback tie-in with the show that came out. I also remember it was on Thursday evenings before Dean Martin. and replaced Dragnet.
