In 1976-1977 the singing duo of Captain and Tennille hosted their own variety titled appropriately "The Captain and Tennille". The hour long ABC show was televised on Monday nights at 8pm and was a favorite in many homes. The entire series consisted of 19 episodes of which the final 8 were produced by Dick Clark. The shows opening musical theme song was set to the tune of "Love Will Keep Us Together." Each show was closed with the first verse of their own composition titled "We Never Really Say Goodbye." The show was a ratings hit and could have continued beyond the first season. The Captain & Tennille opted to focus on their musical career and touring instead. After the initial run of The Captain & Tennille Variety Show, they starred in 3 follow up television specials on ABC two of which aired in the spring of 1978 and the final special in March 1979.
