A skit based on the song "Convoy" and a send-up of Donny and Marie are part of the show. The Jacksons also try and find the best Fonzie impersonator. Songs performed include "Ben" and "Goin' Back to ...
The Jacksons had been given a summer show, and when that ended, the network felt there was enough interest to produce a regular season prime time show. The brothers brought on other family members who hadn't been in front of the cameras much, with the exception of Janet, who was a child actress. However, when this show began, the group was no longer with Motown, and their popularity was beginning to slip. Add that to high production values that are typical for variety show, and you have the formula for why this didn't last beyond one season.
