Sonny and Cher return
15 August 2004 | by mkaiser-1See all my reviews

A year after The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour ended in 1974, Sonny and Cher were divorced and ready to move on. Sonny had his own variety show, as did Cher. Both shows failed. So, Cher approached Sonny about returning as a duo, on a professional basis only.

Sonny and Cher returned, but a lot had happened in 2 years. Cher had married rocker Gregg Allman, and was pregnant. However, Cher was now in the process of going through a divorce from Gregg. This new wrinkle in Cher's life was new fodder for the duo.

The Sonny and Cher Show was really not much different from the original Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. Their daughter, Chastity, was sometimes featured in the skits, and at the end of the show. In fact, the funny, sometimes unscripted exchanges between the divorced couple were funnier, even though the meaning was different. Cher mentioned in her book "The First Time" that she did enjoy working with Sonny again. Unfortunately, fans were not ready to accept Sonny and Cher as divorced and still singing the same songs and doing funny skits. The show ended a year later.

Sonny and Cher would not appear together professionally for 10 years. In 1987, David Letterman invited them to reunite on his show. They agreed, but told the host they didn't want to sing. However, Dave, being Dave, put them on the spot and asked them to sing. They got up, and did "I've Got You Babe" for one last time.
