Flashback Friday: Memories of the TV Land Awards featuring reunions and iconic stars from days gone by
Went into a TV Land Awards wormhole late last night and meant to post these for you but something called sleep unexpectedly got in the way.
It will be easy for you to see why I wanted to share these memories of great TV stars from the past – many of them now gone.
We had fewer channels in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and even 90s so we had more of a shared experience when it came to our favorite television shows. Everyone knew who Gloria and Meathead were from All in the Family, and everyone loved Mary Richards, and the Brady Bunch and I Love Lucy is still universally loved and paid attention to.
These videos include a terrific theme show medley and some sweet reunions.
I hope you take the time to enjoy every single one.

John Ritter, who left us far too soon, was born 73 years ago today.
Thanks to reruns, we get to see him all the time at the peak of his career – and his physical beauty – on Three’s Company.
What a handsome guy!
John died in September 2003 less than a week before what would have been his 55th birthday.
I had interviewed him the previous month for a cover profile for Orange Coast Magazine that was on the stands when his shocking death occurred.
John is best known, of course, for his eight seasons as Jack Tripper on Three’s Company and played the role for one season on the spinoff Three’s a Crowd.
He won an Emmy for his performance as Tripper and was nominated for one for his follow-up series Hooperman. He went on to star for three seasons of the sitcom Hearts Afire and had found success again with the ABC hit Eight Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter. The show was inn its second season when he died.

Sarah Paulson gusted on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live last night and was asked all about Bravo hot topics from RHOBH to RHONY, including if she thinks Erika Jayne knew about Tom Girardi’s questionable legal practices. Personally, I think she goes way too easy on Erikas and on fellow guest Lisa Rinna.
During the After Show (video, below), Sarah says what she’d ask Linda Tripp and Rinna talks about Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley’s conversation about Erika Jayne.
Lauren Bacall was born 97 years ago today today – here are some random videos from the great star’s career
Since Lauren Bacall was one of the first movie stars I became obsessed with as a kid (Elizabeth Taylor was the other, of course), I never forget her birthday.
The movie icon and Broadway legend died just about a month before her 90th birthday in 2014.
She had such an epic life (husbands were Humphrey Bogart and Jason Robards, fiancee was Frank Sinatra) with great professional highs like the movies To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Key Largo, How to Marry a Millionaire, Designing Woman and The Mirror Has Two Faces and the smash Broadway shows Applause, Woman of the Year and Cactus Flower.
She became a star at 19 and worked in movies right up until near the end of her life with such later credits as Dogville, Manderlay, Birth and The Walker.
If you’ve never read Miss Bacall’s autobiography, By Myself, I highly recommend it! It won the National Book Award and is one of my favorite memoirs ever – absorbing from page one.
I’m so glad I got to interview Miss Bacall a few times including for an Orange Coast Magazine cover story. Below are some random videos of Miss Bacall that I especially like – I obviously loved her coffee commercials! Hope you enjoy.
Here are scenes when he came out to his mom and his church.
In watching this, I’m struck by just how very good an actor Michael C. Hall is. He was never nominated for an Emmy for his work in the series and he damned well should have been.
But he did get plenty of well-deserved acclaim for is even better-known role as a serial killer on Showtime’s Dexter.
