Anybody have copies of this show?


I have the very first episode and have transferred it to DVD. But I was wondering if anybody else had any of the other shows. We can trade. I posted a clip of the first episode up on YouTube:

Okay Tschichold...I'm going to quote many sources that say the show lasted more then one showing...and validify my request for copies of the other shows. Just because you didn't see them doesn't mean they didn't exist.

Here you go:

In September 1993 he hosted a talk show, The Chevy Chase Show, for the FOX network. The show was cancelled by FOX after five weeks and remains one of the most notorious failures in the history of broadcast television. He later appeared in a Super Bowl Doritos commercial which made humorous reference to the show. The Chevy Chase Show is often referred to as "The Edsel of Television".

1993 Debuted on the Fox-TV network with his own latenight chat show, "The Chevy Chase Show", on September 7; Final airing of "The Chevy Chase Show", October 15.

How bad did things get during the 29-day reign of The Chevy Chase Show? So bad that the fish in the tank behind Chevy's desk were dying.

one of the more public failures was "The Chevy Chase Show" in 1993. Actually, when I say 1993 it could imply a full year, when in actuality it only aired for five weeks before the network shut it down.

Are all of these sources making up stories about a show that only lasted one showing...and oh yea...this show wasn't "episodic"...so you can't really saw it lasted one "episode". It was a talk show.

Are you finally going to admit you are wrong or are you going to keep pretending you were right. The only way you can make yourself not look stupid is to prove that your local FOX affiliate pulled the show after one night. Can you?

You might want to delete your previous posts or re-edit them too.

I believe I have 2-3 episodes on tape somewhere...some of the highlights:

His 4 "mime face" songs...
Him doing a Weekend Update and the camera not going off and he was trying to leave the desk.

Mostly, the show was awkward for sure...but I do remember those few good moments.
