Yay! 37 years ago tonight, The Partridge Family premiered on ABC-TV, Friday Night, September 25, 1970 at 8:30 PM. It started what is arguably the best "Must See TV" lineup televison had ever seen.

I'll try and update The Partridge Papers/NEWS section with some fun premiere info, photos and other fun stuff sometime this week. :D

Till then, here's an ABC Network promo for their Friday Night line-up:

Here's another for ABC, 1970:

By the way, I believe that's William Schallert (Red Woodloe) as the announcer. And, if my ears are in tune, it's the Bahlers, et al singing ABC's Fall jingle, "Let's Get Together." Very Happy

Thank you, Scott, for directing us to the Youtube site for this snippet of the 70's. It really made my heart feel good to see and experience these images of a gentler and more loving time. How I wish I could take a time machine back and relive those times once more. Life just isn't like that now.

Thanks again!

Cheng's birthday is today too.
Talk about never forgetting your wife's birthday. Laughing
BTW, she was born less than four hours before the premier.
Now that's what I call close. Shocked

Sept 25 1970, My brother and sister and I, was sitting in front of our Admiral TV in our little wooden rocking chairs that my mom purchased from the collection of all of those Green Stamps. I distinctly remember the premier episode and of course all of those that followed. Smile

A belated Happy 37th Anniversary to Shirley, David, Danny, Reuben and the rest of the gang! Very Happy Smile Surprised Cool Laughing Razz Wink

I once read that 1970-71 was a horrendous season for ABC. Of the many, many shows that debuted (The Young Rebels, The Young Lawyers and Barefoot in the Park never even made it beyond midseason!), Partridge Family and The Odd Couple (which, interestingly, debuted the night before PF) were the only big hits of that fateful fall. Confused
