Fernwood Tonight (1977) Poster

Set in the fictional small town of Fernwood, OH, the show parodies real talk shows, complete with a stage band, as well as the sort of fare one might expect from a small-town locally produced television program.

One of the best things to come out of the '70s.
Other than Monty Python, I can't think of too many shows where I would actually hurt from laughing so hard, but this was one of those shows.

I think there were a lot of elements that made this show so great: all the characters were wonderful, and I like how they were so earnest in the way they went about doing their show in the small town of Fernwood Ohio, the guests who happened along and got their 15 minutes of fame momentarily, the non-PC way Barth and Jerry conversed about pretty much any topic or person, and of course, Happy Kyne and the Merthmakers.

I'd like to see the shows again to see if they were all as good as I remember.
