Answer: Ozzie's Girls

The sitcom series "Ozzie's Girls" premiered on January 1, 1973, in first-run syndication. The series was picked up following the successful broadcast of the pilot episode aired on September 12, 1972.

In the series, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson decide to rent out the rooms of their grown sons, David and Ricky, after they left home to pursue their own careers. Their rooms are rented to a pair of college students, Susan Hamilton (Susan Sennett) and Brenda McKenzie (Brenda Sykes).

Answer: Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

"Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" was a popular saying heard, regarding the sibling rivalry between Marcia and Jan, the two oldest Brady girls. The phrase was never used as a title for a spin-off series.

The Brady's were featured in specials after the series ended. They included
"The Brady Girls Get Married" in 1981, which lead to a series, and "A Very Brady Christmas" broadcast in December of 1988.

The four sequel series were, "The Brady Kids", a 22 episode animated cartoon series that aired 1972 through 1974, "The Brady Bunch Hour", which aired in 1972, "The Brady Brides" which aired in 1981, and "The Bradys", a series that aired in the 1989-1990 television season.

The original series aired 117 episodes during its five season run on the ABC Television Network. (1969-1974).
3. Which actor never played the lead role in one of the four remakes of the television series "Dragnet"?

Answer: Dan Aykroyd

Dan Aykroyd played Sgt. Joe Friday in the 1987 feature length movie "Dragnet".
The comedy drama co-starred Tom Hanks as Friday's partner, Detective Pep Streebek.
Aykroyd never played the Joe Friday role on television.

Jack Webb originated the role of Sergeant Joe Friday. Webb starred in the 1951 version of "Dragnet". The series ran for eight seasons (1951-1959), producing 276 episodes, and receiving five Primetime Emmy Awards.

Webb returned to primetime television in 1967 with a remake of his original series. Harry Morgan co-starred as Friday's partner, Officer Bill Gannon.
The series ran for four seasons. For each of the seasons, the year was added to the title ("Dragnet 1967", through "Dragnet 1970").

After Jack Webb's death in 1982, a new version of "Dragnet" was produced in 1989, and shown in first run syndication.
The series starred Jeff Osterhage as Detective Vic Daniels and Bernard White as his partner, Detective Carl Molina. Although the names of the main characters were change, everything else remained the same. The series titled "The New Dragnet" aired 52 episodes over two seasons.

A 2003 network version of "Dragnet" starred Ed O'Neill as Sergeant Joe Friday.
Ethan Embry co-starred as Detective Frank Smith, Friday's partner. After 12 episodes and low ratings, the series was retooled for the final 10 episodes. The series title was changed to "L.A. Dragnet", Sergeant Joe Friday was promoted to Lieutenant, and the cast was change. Instead of a single partner, Friday supervised a team of young detectives.
Overall, the series ran for two seasons with 22 episodes.

Trivia ... DID YOU KNOW ...

That Jack Webb planned to return with a third version of "Dragnet" in 1982. Kent McCord, who played Officer Jim Reed in Webb's series "Adam-12" had been selected to play Joe Friday's new partner. It had not been determined if McCord would play the role of Jim Reed or a new character for the new show. Pre-production work for the new series abruptly ended after Webb suffered a fatal massive heart attack on December 23, 1982.

In the 1951 and 1967 versions of "Dragnet", Jack Webb paid homage to many of the police offices and ranking police staff members by using their real names, ranks, and positions in the episodes. The "names that were changed to protect the innocent" were only those of the victims, the accused criminals, and any law enforcement officers accused of wrongdoing.

Many fans of the original series remember that in the final season of "Dragnet", Joe Friday was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, yet when the show returned for the 1967 run, Friday was again a sergeant.
Webb would later explain in a press interview that the role of a lieutenant was mostly supervisory, and lieutenants rarely worked cases in the field. By returning the Joe Friday character to a sergeant, he would still fight crime and investigate cases in the field.

According to the "Merrian-Webster Dictionary", Dragnet is defined as "a series of actions that are done by police in order to catch criminals".
