Not sure why 'Maude' and 'WKRP' would be included here as they are well known enough to have had multiple seasons. Why not 'Fish', 'Battlestar Galactica' (the original), or 'Bosom Buddies'? Everyone, please feel free to add you own alternate choices.

Everybody knows "Bosom Buddies" had multiple seasons. After the first, Lucille Benson was replaced as the hotel manager with Telma Hopkins, and Kip and Henry left the ad agency to open their own production company (somehow getting Holland Taylor to come along as a business partner).

I only wish they had gotten the rights to use 'My Life' in the home video releases. I know it was the money, but wouldn't they only have to pay for use of the song since it wasn't Billy Joel singing it? Even if they had to pay whoever sang it (David Pomerantz? IDK for sure), wouldn't it be more $$$ for the Billy Joel version? Or doesn't it work that way? I'm guessing someone here can explain it.

"You got 10 out of 10. You've won a victory that's sure to last a couple of seasons!"

Life With Lucy (1986) was terrible, I knew after the first episode it was doomed. So I
figured this was my last shot to score the autographed pic of one of the all time
great straight men, Gale Gordon. I quickly wrote him care of the show, he sent me back not
only the pic of himself but a cast photo signed by everyone, Lucy included.
Anyway, to this day I have never seen anything associated with this series (that was canceled
after 13 episodes) for sale. I have no idea if that means no one would care about my cast photo,
or possibly no other cast photos survived, maybe they were all chucked out when the series tanked.
Seriously? What a treasure! I would think that the reason you haven't seen much else is because the window of opportunity was so short.
Good point, Scarlett. Plus people Lucy's age probably weren't going to bother writing in,
and fan boy/fan girl types by definition are in their teens or early 20's and they
just weren't interested anymore in a poorly done retread of Lucy's classic
TV series.

8/10 There is one show I recall that I watched that I have YET to see in syndication. Does anyone remember the show, "The Good Guys"? It featured Bob Denver (after Gilligan's Island was canceled) & Herb Edelman. It lasted two seasons but I have never seen repeats of this show?

I watched a couple episodes(or maybe just one,I can't remember as it was a while ago) on Youtube. That and Dusty's Trail. Another one with Bob.

STOP saying "only had"; the correct syntax is HAD ONLY. "Only" is an expression of diminution, and it must be kept as close to to the word or concept it's intended to diminish -- in this case, "one" -- as possible. They had ONLY one.

There's something about the word "only" that has Americans -- and it's typically just Americans -- terribly impatient to use the word, so they insert it too soon. As with many, more important, things in life, wait...wait...wait till the time is right.

And if you realize you've waited too long, just tag "only" on at the end of the sentence instead, i.e. "This show had one season only".
