Saturday Nights on ABC

Long before Saturday nights became a wasteland of reruns, it was a wasteland of C-List celebrities!

Both ABC's Love Boat and Fantasy Island pulled together well-known C-List faces just to throw them in ridiculous situations.

Interestingly, the descriptions found in TV Guide's advertising were typically so vague as to make it difficult to determine which episode they were tied to. 

The cancellation of Love Boat was a blow to every Hollywood has been; as crazy as the show tended to be, it was still classier than having to do a panel game show.
