Television is littered with the corpses of ill-conceived musical-variety series that were so bad you had to see them to believe them. A prime example was NBC's "Pink Lady and Jeff," which premiered March 1, 1980. Produced by Sid and Marty Krofft, the show revolved around a duo called Pink Lady, Japanese pop singers Mie and Kie who spoke rudimentary English, and American comedian Jeff Altman. Each episode ended with the girls in bikinis in a hot tub pushing a fully clothed Altman into the water. Not surprisingly, "Pink Lady" was history by April 1.
