Thrown To the Wolves
12 April 2004 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

Leslie Uggams was one of the finest young entertainers of her era and she deserved to have a great variety series. Unfortunately, this show was pretty much a stop gap after the powers that be at C.B.S. canceled the controversial "Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" due to its content. Ms. Uggams was immediately thrown up as a sacrificial lamb and this almost ruined her career. I feel that one of the things that made it so short lived was the fact that it was seen as a stop gap measure to counteract the Smothers Brother's controversy. This show wasn't as controversial and didn't have the cutting edge satire that the Smothers were noted for. Too bad though, this seemed like a pretty interesting show and if it hadn't been for the circumstances that helped get this show on the on the air, I think it would have succeeded, especially due to the fact that Ms. Uggams was so talented. Luckily for her, her appearance on Roots helped to return her to some of the prominence she had before this show hit the air.
