[ some laughter ] lotta-lotta shows, have been popular, left-- you know, barney miller,
2:14 am
be back. uh, uh, what are some of the other shows that've-- >> "m*a*s*h" is ending. >> "m*a*s*h." finished, after 10 years. it's too bad, 'cause a lotta those were very, very good shows. and this is the time o' year that the networks have already announced their shows, for the programs, for the fall season. [ some laughter ] no, i'm gonna give you a sample. th-these are-- on nbc, they have a show called "night rider." it's "a series about a champion of the underdog--" i love the publicity things. >> mmm. >> "a champion of the underdog, who fights crime, with a-- aid of a special, indestructible black car, the most incredible automobile ever invented." >> mmm. >> now, that's the premise. there's a show called "silver spoons," with ricky schroder. stars as "a lad, more mature, in years, than his rich but irresponsible father." we have a show called "gavilan" coming out, "about "a former cia operative who can't get dangerous living out of his system. a man who uses many gadgets to keep him out of trouble."
2:15 am
the night that goes on, won't ya? >> yeah. >> i wanna see that. [ laughter ] >> "the power of matthew star." this is about "a seemingly ordinary high school teenager, who is actually from another planet and possesses telekinetic powers." an-- "bring 'em back alive." now, remember-- >> right. >> who that was? >> frank buck. >> "based on the exploits of big game trapper frank buck." uh, "mama malone." oh, that's on cbs. the "bring 'em back alive." they also have "mama malone." this is about "theow who broadcasts an offbeat television cooking show, from the kitchen of her brooklyn apartment." [ some laughter ] let's see. they also have a show called, uh, "the good witch of laurel canyon." [ some laughter ] "a lighthearted drama about a pair of married private detectives, whose lives are complicated by her unpredictable psychic powers." psychics are in, this year, i think. on abc. ron glass, from barney miller.
2:16 am
"the odd couple." the new-- it's called "the new odd couple." let's see. [ laughter ] here's one called "star in the family," "a comedy about an ambitious young pop singer and her crusty, softhearted father." >> oh. [ some laughter ] >> notice that they're always "crusty" or-- >> yeah. >> but vulnerable. here's one, here-- "brass monkey." now, this one-- [ person applauding ] [ some laughter ] you know something about this show? >> yeah. >> do you really? i'm gonna give you the premise of this show. thisfr that they send out. "set in the south pacific. it's about a daring cargo pilot, who battles sinister nazis, a villainous but beautiful eurasian princess, and larson's rogues, with the help of his one-eyed dog and a gorgeous american spy." [ laughter ] >> mmm! [ chuckling ] >> those are some of the programs you can-- a one-eyed dog! somebody said-- [ chuckling ] >> one-eyed dog. >> somebody said, "hey! harry, we haven't used a-- one-eyed-dog show,
2:17 am
with an eyepatch." [ chuckling ] >> well, those are the shows that were considered good enough, by the network, to get on. you can imagine the shows that they saw that could not make it-- >> could not make it. >> for one reason or another. >> i'm sure you've got a couple to tell us about. >> the producers of these unfortunate shows that didn't make it were kind enough to send us some publicity stills. [ some laughter ] and we may be able to explain why these shows were not selected to be seen, in the fall. if you watch the monitor-- [ chuckling ] you'll-you'll know, along with us. there was a special medical show, filmed right here-- filmed right here, at nbc, called "dr. tolmein nagucci, commissary coroner." [ laughter ] didn't get on. >> didn't get on. did not get on. >> there was a celebrity golf tournament, with a religious theme. [ laughter ] this was called "the-the reverend moon open." [ laughter ] [ applause ]
2:18 am
now, barnum and bailey, who, you know, put on a show, every year, sponsored a three-hour white paper report on a medical problem sweeping the circus world-- clown herpes. [ laughter ] didn't get on. now, here's a show that just didn't have a chance. was called "fantasy outhouse." [ laughter ] d, in this very opening episode, mr. rourke's secret fantasy comes true, a lumberjack's men's room. [ laughter ] and that-- they thought that was bad taste. from the makers of "the streets of san francisco" comes "the streets of san juan capistrano." [ laughter ] about two detectives who try not to get their hats soiled, when the swallows return. [ laughter ] somebody saw no-- this was probably the worst. possibly most boring new drama
2:19 am
bad shaver." [ laughter ] >> didn't get on. >> tried to make a show, outta that. [ some laughter ] now, this-- ya know, lawrence welk went off, after these low-- these many years, and this show was supposed to appeal to laurence welk fans. it's a musical show, featuring maestro chubby florin, who sits in a bathtub filled with flat champagne and makes his own bubbles. [ laughter ] [ some booing ] i know. i agree with you! you're absolutely right. and that's why it didn't get on! when that was presented, people went, "oh, no!" >> "oh, no." >> now, here's a sunday-morning religious show that didn't come close, host-hosted by this man, the reverend ernst areacode, [ some laughter ] who believes that, from anywhere in the continental united states, for less than three fifty-five on weekends, you can dial god, direct. [ laughter ] they said no, to that. and so did you.
2:20 am
"marcus winsus, dummy doctor." [ laughter ] >> "dummy doctor." >> that's right. from the producers of "little house on the prairie" comes a more adult drama-- "little hooker on the ten-speed." [ laughter ] [ applause ] didn't make it. >> didn't make it. >> this was probably the worst sitcom ever made, about a bachelor luncheonette owner who has a very unusual mom. it's called "my mother [ some laughter ] i knew this was going to get absolutely nothing. >> and you were right. >> this was a made-for-television movie, very loosely adapted from the classic movie "how green was my valley," about a water skiing cow-- uh, cowboy and his horse, called "how wet was my gelding." [ laughter ] this was a spin off of the miniseries "inside the thd reh." remember when that was on, last week? >> mmm-hmm. >> called "inside the third booth." [ some laughter ]
2:21 am
phone pervert rudolph mess. [ some laughter ] here, in this, uh-- in this picture, here-- [ chuckling ] i can't even read the rest of this. [ laughter ] [ applause ] i can't. that is some-- [ cheering ] no. we'll be back, in just a moment.

2:24 am
[ applause ] >> i know. he's not expecting this. >> don't tell me this is rocky iv. >> no. [ laughter ] he just thinks that-- every day i go to work, i always come home with bloody noses and bruises, and he wanna know who does it. and i said him. [ laughter ] >> is this your-- is your boy? >> yeah. yeah. >> hi! what's his name. >> this is sage. >> hi, sage. how are ya? >> fine. >> nice to meet you. you didn't know where your dad went, when he went to work. >> no. so, say goodbye, sage. [ laughter ] >> see ya later, sage. [ chuckling ] [ applause ] [ cheering ] [ laughter ] >> i wish someone had done that to me. [ chuckling ] >> yeah! nobody ever did that, at your age? took ya out in public and said, "hey. here's-here's my kid," right? >> yeah. >> how old is he? about, uh-- six? >> he's about six years old,
2:25 am
>> good-lookin' boy. >> yeah, he's fine. fine kid. >> does he go to see, uh-- >> uh. >> the pictures? is he too young to understand, uh-- to separate the reality, from, uh-- >> he was, up until about a year ago. truthfully, he-he thought i was a fighter and a boxer, and-- i guess it's because my wife is always beatin' up on me, anyway, so it's-- [ laughter ] it wasn't that much different. so, now, he has, uh-- he's much more interested in, uh, steve martin. he says, uh, "there's a man--" >> sure. >> "i'm interested in." [ laughter ] >> that always figures-- when you're-- when you're a celebrity or a star, and you have your ki >> oh, sure. >> 'cause you're just dad, that's all. and that's the way it should be. i saw your movie, last night. i enjoyed it. >> oh, thank you, very much. >> you got another winner, there. you really do. >> well, i hope so. i really feel responsible for the third one t-- you know. >> yeah. >> it's like living up to your two older brothers. >> yeah. >> and hand-me-downs. you say, "oh, i don't wanna go out there, do something that's embarrassing." so, a lotta people put a lotta work and love and-- i don't wanna sit there and get maudlin about this, but i-i hope everyone likes it-- >> yeah. >> 'cause we're very proud of it. >> i'll tell ya somethin'. you've gotta be, after making
2:26 am
in hollywood. [ cheering ] 'cause every one of 'em-- they-- [ applause ] i mean you-you gotta go into training, not only in the scenes to film it, but you gotta be in shape, to do the s-- do the fight scenes. >> well, the-- this fight is, uh, kinda like, uh, a metaphor for the way, i think, that people have to constantly be changing their lives, alter their philosophies, to stay one step ahead of the game. >> right. >> so, what johnny is talking about-- in this fight, i lose about 30 pounds from the other "rocky"s. it's-it's quite different, visually. >> right. >> and it took about 10 months, to-to do all that-- and working out with professional bodybuilders, professional boxers, and professional torturers-- [ laughter ] >> you probably get this question i'm asking-- after all these scenes and doin' all the work, from the gym training-- you think you could step in, with a-- oh, let's say a pretty good club fighter, now, and, uh-- >> funny you should ask that. um-- >> yeah. step in the ring. we-- i'm talkin' about-- i'm talkin' about champion, but a good club fighter. >> well, i think,
2:27 am
and will was in order-- no, le-- i-- lemme give you an example. >> yeah. >> i thought, this time, "wouldn't it be interesting to take a real fighter and bring him into the film--" 'cause i-i need a new opponent, at the end-- "and just teach him how to act, a little-little bit? that'll save a lotta time." so, the first one is earnie shavers. [ chuckling ] now, earnie shavers is about-- i dunno-- 59 fights and about 56 knockouts. well, i got into the ring, with him-- and you have to really begin to believe, you know, "i'm pretty hot, you know." >> uh-huh. [ some laughter ] okay. he hit me on the elbow, and knocked my wind out. [ laughter ] okay? hit me here-- >> yeah. >> and got a concussion. [ laughter ] then, he got me in the corner-- >> you're not jokin'. >> no. i s-- >> you know, i'll tell you why. years ago-- w-we'll come back. i didn't wanna-- years ago, the late rocky marciano was sitting, in new york-- and we were talkin' about fighters-- and he used to hit guys, on the arm. >> oh! >> and, just from not-- covering up-- and what you just said-- would absolutely-- >> my arm-- it started, and then it
2:28 am
and then-- >> yeah. >> shakin'. then, he looked at me, and there was a certain voracious hunger, like i was a t-bone steak, and-- [ some laughter ] he had-- he had been marooned, on an island, for years. and he proceeded to-- like 17 body punches, and i-i-- and i said, "do i-- what is that screechin', in the background?" it's the producer, saying, "save my boy!" [ laughter ] "save my boy! there goes my--" >> he's a professional fighter. that's the only he knows how to-- >> but he was great. and-- he was great. and i thought he really hit so, i said, "maybe i'll go to someone a little easier." joe frazier. [ some laughter ] true. we're in the ring, and we're boxin'. all of a sudden, i feel somethin' warm. "this-this can't be nerves. what is it?" and i look up, and i say, "either i'm bleeding, or someone has just dumped marmalade on my head." and what it was just a quick, little butt that was accidental, and, uh, i said-- "here i am. one man beats me to death. i'm bleeding."
2:29 am
we haven't g-- i haven't passed the audition, yet, and i'm ready for traction." >> so, that's when-- >> so-- >> you decided maybe not to go with a professional heavyweight. >> no. and i-- so, we went out, and i found the fella, on tv, who was throwing midgets. [ laughter ] um. >> now, you may have seen this guy. i knew who it was, when i heard the name. they call him mr. t, right? >> mis-- yes. uh, i-i was really hung up on who to find, as an opponent, because i really believed that, in a-- any kinda combat, you're only as good as your competitio i needed someone who was really an interesting nemesis. and we looked around, and the-- uh, the casting director named rhonda young finally said, "you should see this guy on television, mr. t. he's throwing midgets, and he's breaking doors with his forehead." i said, "this is my kind of man!" [ laughter ] i like him. he's got style." and i looked, and he had a mohawk and eight earrings, and-- >> mmm-hmm. >> and all the jewelry-- it looked like an explosion, at-at cartier. >> yeah. >> it's like boom, all--
2:30 am
so, he really is, uh-- is a godsend. >> yeah. >> he really is. he's fantastic. >> we gotta do a commercial. we're gonna come back and talk some more about it and other things. then, we have a-- there's a wonderful sequence, in the thing, where you-- >> oh. with the-- >> for a charity match, within the framework of the story-- have a bout with a boxer-- uh, with a wrestler-- professional wrestler. >> yes. >> and i think we have a little-- >> thunder lips. >> thunder lips. we'll take a break. we'll be right back. [ applause ]

[ clearing throat ] >> yes, i was-- >> i heard that >> i was asked to-- >> asked to leave? >> evacuate the hallway.
2:34 am
difficult time, trying to, um, adjust to school, in general. i dunno. it just seemed that, at that time-- i dunno how the school board conducts its business, today, but it seems as though you-- i was always forced into subjects that i felt didn't have any relevancy, like algebra and xmsg accelerated geometry. and i was just thinking, "how do i get this hickey off my neck?" [ some laughter ] i mean-- the-the two didn't seem to jive. >> yeah. >> uh, but i guess the priorities today have-have changed-- sorry. [ chuckling ] >> yeah. uh, let's-let's show this little film clip. this is, uh-- who's the fella that you, uh-- you do this with? >> his name is hulk hogan. he is, uh, another fellow that i saw, one night, on television. i was lay-- had insomnia, and he came on, and he beat up four wrestlers, at the same time. and he was a giant. he's about seven feet tall, about 350 pounds. and i thought, "how interesting." if rocky were to have a charity match, everything was supposed to be nice and sweet,
2:35 am
and they're all out there, with their balloons. >> kinda fake a show-- >> yeah, we'd fake it. we'll move here, we'll move there. and this man decides to show the world that he's gonna turn rocky into a little wet spot. >> okay. watch the monitors. here's a little excerpt, from, uh, "rocky iii." [ cheering ] >> slugger, from philadelphia. [ yelling ] >> better shut up! break you in a half. >> how much do you think he eats? >> 'bout 202 pounds. >> weighing 202 pounds, the reigning heavyweight champion of the world, rocky balboa!

2:38 am
caught-caught one? >> yes, your honor. >> yeah. >> yes-- oh, yes. uh, usually, it was my fault. the, uh, hulk, here-- the only time he hurt me is when i-- when he would l-- there's a lotta falls that go on. i'd leave my arm out, and i'd forget. and he'd land on it. and then, i'd bring it back, and it-it would be a postage stamp. [ laughter ] >> big pancake. but, with mr. t, in the end, i felt that, uh, the-the difficult thing is really-- since "rocky i" and ii-- the fights have been set up, in such a way-- in 'rocky iii?'" >> right. >> so, we decided to really let it loose, you know, last round. and what people will see, from the middle of the last round on, is it's full-fledged. >> it looks well-well done. >> thank you. >> yeah. well done. okay, we'll take a break. mr. martin will join us, shortly.

3:05 am
you are skating on thin ice, jack. jack, janet you'll never guess who i ran into today! chrissy, you left the door open. that's okay. my friend darlene is paying the taxicab driver. you'll never guess in a million years. your friend darlene? how'd you guess? who's darlene? i told you about her. i went to high school with her. remember that girl i told you about who was always so miserable ver thought she'd get anywhere? that was darlene? no, that was me. darlene is the one who told me i had as much brains as anybody else and i better use them or lose them. so what did you do? i listened to her. oh, darlene was always so smart. all the kids in school used to call her einstein. oh, that's wonderful. yeah. she was captain of the debating team

3:08 am
i'll keep that in mind. mm-hmm. isn't she terrific? you're the one who's terrific. why? if i ran into an old high school friend dressed like that-- the gucci bag, romano boots, the dior blouse-- i would be green with envy. and you're not the slightest bit jealous. is that really a gucci bag? ( raucous laughing ) you remember, darlene, if there's anything you want and i'm talking anything at all. jack, you are very kind. kind of nauseating. darlene: is there a telephone here that i could use? oh, yeah. it's right over here. oh, um, is that the only phone? how many do you need? no, chrissy. i think darlene means she'd like a little privacy. let's go heat up some coffee. darlene, i will get the number for you.
