That '70s Show

Trivia: The show was originally titled "Teenage Wasteland" or "The Kids are Alright" but those were songs by The Who and, legally, Fox couldn't get permission to use them. They renamed the show "Feelin' Alright" to show the focus groups. However, nobody really liked the name. After the focus groups airing, the audience were heard saying they really liked that show about the 70's or that 70's show - and the name stuck.

The Pill - S1-E17

Trivia: During Bob's 'open for business' daydream, the man who has his hand up cupped over his ear while he says, "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm next," is Gary Owens, who played the Announcer on the 60s-70s TV show 'Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In' and always had his hand cupped over his ear. In a few other episodes we only hear his very distinct voice.
