The Jim Nabors Show

Recommended Posts

Amazon Prime has added The Jim Nabors Show, Nabors’ 1978 talk show, to their watch instantly choices. Lucie guests in one episode. Lots of other fun people appear as guests on the series as well.

Took a few episodes for a spin tonight. Lucie, 2 Monthy Hall episodes and the first one where Betty White didn't get to do much. 

I can see why this only lasted a season. Jim may be a fine singer but he's not a great interviewer. So they relied too heavily on the audience and dumb things with really uninteresting people. The lineup of celebrities was pretty good but I wanted more chat, the way Dinah did with multiple guests. A flow, they all shared stories and talked.

From the looks of things, I’m pretty sure there was no one in the studio audience under the age of 70. 

I was telling Charlie this was a show for bored housewives but after a few episodes I changed that to bored grandparents.

"Jim Nabors" is a rather odd offering.  But there's hope we'll get a look at some other obscure series in the future. The market I lived in did not run "The Jim Nabors Talk Show".  My wishlist includes "Pete & Gladys" and "Glynis".   When CBS ran I Love Lucy in the morning from 1959 to 1966, they did edits to allow for more commercials.  The show was divided into 4 acts instead of 2.  When it was beamed, I'm wondering whether they still ran the 35mm film through a telecine device or whether the shows were transferred to 2" videotape, the only tape format available at the time (as far as I know).  CBS reran the 78 Pete & Gladys episodes for 2 years, mainly (I think) because they had ownership in the show.   All of their other daytime offerings over the years were prime time ratings hits.

Sounds like Betty White's Pet Set is hitting streaming next month. I haven't heard what streaming service has it yet.
