In the summer of 1987, these promos starts to appear on ABC:

My family really loved Dolly Parton. So I was sold at an early age on her charisma and talent. In 1987 Dolly signed a deal to bring a variety show to ABC. It was a big deal with Dolly reportedly getting over 40 million dollars for 2 seasons. Of course with all that money and hype circulating, the show did well at first. But slowly and surely the ratings decline and the show never had a second season.

I was watching it right up to the end and was bummed to hear it was not renewed. Oh well…

    At first I thought by Dolly you meant the cloned sheep. Glad it was Dolly Parton!
