The Bing Crosby Show (sitcom)

    (ABC Primetime, 1964 - 1965)

    [This sitcom was an attempt to take the man who defined the
     word "crooner" and turn his personal life into a comedy alá
     "Burns & Allen", "Father Knows Best" or perhaps more like
     "Ozzie and Harriet";

     The situation was that a former singer (played by Bing of course) 
     decided to retire from show business and become (of all things)
     an electrical engineer; The role of his wife was played by
     Barbara Garland; The characters also had two daughters;

     Somehow, between managing the predictable domestic crises,
     Bing's character managed to work a song into every episode --
     something not even band singer Ozzie Nelson dared to try
     on his TV show (although son Ricky was indulged);

     This far-fetched contrivance was put out of its misery after
     a single season; Too bad, since Bing Crosby Productions had
     produced many other successful series; But the one for the
     boss bombed]
