Life with Laverne:Laverne tries to arrange a date for her frumpy friend Gladys Ormphby, the hairnet wearing, purse wielding spinster from Laugh In in another fabulous 1970s oddball character mashup. Would love to see this someday.

Close: Cher closes this final show with a blooper from the week's taping.
Highlights: Cher and Glen Campbell have done many medley duets over the years on each others' variety shows and are always great old-friend singing partners from back in the 1960s Wrecking Crew days. Laverne meets Glady Ormphby! This short but vibrant series now ends with a whimper instead of a bang, not even a final Cher solo to see us off. Boo. Cher will be back in February in a revamped show with Sonny, a single show which will be one of the most anticipated and watched TV-premieres up to that time.
