In March 1977, Three’s Company debuted on our TV screens and it hasn’t left them since. In honor of the comedy’s 40th anniversary, Antenna TV staged a reunion with four of the show’s surviving stars. On March 11th and 12th, Joyce DeWitt (Janet), Richard Kline (Larry), Priscilla Barnes (Terry) and Jenilee Harrison (Cindy) will talk about the sitcom that made them all household names for 4 decades and counting.
Their get together will air during the Three’s Company 40th Anniversary Rendezvous marathon weekend which will also include 40 hours of Three’s Company or 72 episodes and The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson episodes featuring Richard Kline and John Ritter.
When it comes to the three roommates and their upstairs neighbor, they look just like they did when the show aired from 1977-1983. Hard to believe it is turning the Big 4-0 because they all still look so fantastic. Too bad John Ritter, Don Knotts, Norman Fell and Audra Lindley are not around to be part of the reunion. But I am sure they are there in spirit.
So on the weekend of March 11th, Come and knock on our door because they’ve been waiting for you.
BTW Antenna TV is having a Wings marathon today for Valentine’s Day if you want to catch up with another great sitcom that has stood the test of time.
Too Close for Comfort, WKRP in Cincinnati, Soap, Good Times, Maude, The Monkees, Three’s Company, Benny Hill and The Partridge Family are getting some new neighbors on Antenna TV this fall and you might’ve heard of them. Benson and Barney Miller are joining the Sunday night lineup on September 9th and I can’t wait. I have been waiting years to see Benson again and now I will be able to watch it right after the show it spun off of…Soap. Hopefully one night Antenna TV will air Soap’s series finale followed by the episode where Jessica’s spirit comes to visit Benson at the Governor’s Mansion back to back. I have always wanted to see those two episodes together.
Seriously Antenna TV is my favorite station out there. Just when I didn’t think I could love them more than I already do, they add Benson and Barney Miller to their lineup. Now if only they could get the rights to air The Odd Couple, Love Sydney and/or Taxi, I would be the happiest passenger ever. It’s like I get to relive my childhood syndication viewing all over again.
If you are not familiar with Antenna TV, they play a lot of great sitcoms from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s and you get to remember how great television used to be. It’s like what TV Land used to be, but better. To find out if you get Antenna TV, click here.
I don’t mention this enough, but Antenna TV is my favorite channel on television. Unlike TV Land and Nick at Nite, Antenna TV actually plays the classics instead of claiming they do. They air Norman Lear’s brilliant shows like All in the Family, Good Times and my favorite Maude. They also show shows that haven’t been in syndication in a long time like Soap, Too Close for Comfort, The Monkees, The Partridge Family, Benny Hill and starting next month they are adding WKRP in Cincinnati to the lineup. There is always something on for me to enjoy.
So why mention my adoration now? Well they just released a promo showing how fashionable the network is. Seriously Antenna TV is always in style even though the bell bottoms and polyester suits the actors wore on the sitcoms are not.
If you want to find out if you get Antenna TV and see which other of your favorites they air, then check out the Antenna TV website. I promise you will love the channel as much as I do.
