40th Anniversary of the American TV debut of “The Doris Day Show”September 24, 2008 No Comments
2008 is a year for career milestones for Doris Day so there are lots of reasons to celebrate and reflect on her accomplishments.
Tuesday, September 24 marks to the day the 40th Anniversary that “The Doris Day Show” premiered on American television. This was notably followed that night by the first investigating news magazine on television “60 minutes” (which still airs today).
“The Doris Day Show” told the story of Doris Martin a new widow living back on her fathers farm with her sons. During its successful 5 year run on CBS the character would evolve before our eyes into an investigating reporter for Today’s World Magazine in San Francisco. Forty years later this TV series has become one of the most beloved and best-selling DVD series in Australia, the UK, Canada and the USA.
Other significant dates from 2008 were July 3 which marked the 60th Anniversary of the New York premiere to Doris’s film debut in “Romance On The High Seas“. Also in February at the 50th Grammy Awards she received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” as recognition for her recording career which began 70 years ago.
Now lets all throw daisies in the air, Have a Doris Day and Celebrate.
