Jack Gilford Show, The

We’re not certain what this is.  In 1981, the fine comedy and Broadway star Jack Gilford starred in an hour-long made-for-cable special called The Jack Gilford Show but that’s not what this ticket was for.  It looks like the folks behind The Mary Tyler Moore Show put together a sitcom pilot for Mr. Gilford, filmed it and then it didn’t sell.  Anyone with any more info, please share it.

It Takes Two

This appears to be a ticket for an unsold pilot.  The original It Takes Two aired on NBC from March 31, 1969 to July 31, 1970 and was hosted by Vin Scully.  It was a very simple game: Three celebrity couples competed.  A question would be raised which had a numeric answer and probably involved an educated guess as to that number.  Each member of a couple would give their estimates separately and then the average of the two would be the guess for that couple.  So if you knew the answer but your mate was way off the mark, he or she would ruin things for your team.  Anyway, this is not a ticket to that series.

It’s also not a ticket to the 1997 revival done for the Family Channel and hosted by Dick Clark.  So I’m guessing it’s an unsold pilot.
