A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
Some of Hollywood's biggest actresses have played Charlie's Angels on the big and small screen - and many more almost landed the parts. Who else almost starred over the years?
This show was in the top ten for its first two seasons: 1976 to 1977 number five, 1977 to 1978 number four, competing in a three way tie with 60 Minutes (1968) and All in the Family (1971). Midway through season three, when Kate Jackson announced her impending departure, the show slipped out of the top ten to number twelve. When Shelley Hack became Jackson's replacement, the ratings dropped even further to number twenty. The ratings slide continued, and Hack was let go. Tanya Roberts was hired to replace Hack, but the ratings didn't improve, plummeting to an abysmal number fifty-nine. The show never recovered, and was cancelled at the end of its fifth season.
Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the Police Academy; and they were each assigned very hazardous duties. But I took them away from all that, and now they work for me. My name is Charlie.
With hardly any exception, whenever the angels went "undercover", they always used their real first and last name. This wouldn't occur in real life.
