9 Famous TV Flops

Pink Lady and Jeff

Pink Lady and Jeff aired for six weeks in 1980 and made network executives see red. The show combined musical numbers by a Japanese female singing duo called Pink Lady and sketch comedy starring comedian Jeff Altman. The show was produced by Sid and Marty Krofft, famous for creating the landmark children's series H. R. Pufnstuf and The Donny and Marie Show, and special guests included Sid Caeser, Sherman Hemsley, Blondie, and Jim Varney. The girls knew very little English and had to learn their song lyrics and lines phonetically, one reason why critics said sayonara.
