TV Shows - Turn-On

Turn-On is an American television series from 1969. Only one episode was shown and it is considered one of the most infamous flops in TV history. Turn-On's sole episode was shown on Wednesday, February 5, 1969, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern and 7:30 p.m. in other markets. Among the cast were Teresa Graves (who would later join the Laugh-In cast that autumn) and Chuck McCann (longtime kiddie show host, character actor, and voice artist). The writing staff included a young Albert Brooks. The guest host for the episode was Tim Conway, best known for his long run on The Carol Burnett Show.

1 I've heard that there was actually a second episode completed that some people were able to view at a museum somewhere. I'd be curious to see either episode, considering how infamous the show is. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 27, 2012, 1:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Turn On is one of at least five network TV shows to have the sad distinction of only running once. Other examples are You're in the Picture (CBS, Jan. 20, 1961), Co Ed Fever (CBS, Feb. 4, 1979), South of Sunset (CBS, Oct. 27, 1993), and Dot Comedy (ABC, Dec. 15, 2000). Perhaps Turn On deserves the crown of shortest run in network history over the other four: in some markets, the sole episode was pulled off the air in mid broadcast! What I don't understand is how something that could be so universally rejected by audiences (and staff at the stations) ever got to be broadcast in the first place. I assume that someone had to have seen it before broadcast: I wonder how the people who approved this felt after the fact. Maybe because it was from the producers of Laugh In (a big hit at the time), it didn't go through the usual scrutiny. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 8:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
