  What You Probably Didn’t Know About The Brady Bunch

“The Brady Bunch” has been so ubiquitous on TV for so long that it’s surprising to learn it was never a big ratings winner when it was first on the air.



“The Brady Bunch” debuted on September 26, 1969, and it finally went off the air on March 8, 1974, after 117 episodes. But surprisingly, the show never made it to the top 30 of the Nielsen ratings, but it did well enough for ABC to keep it going for five years.



There was even going to be a Season 6, but as Sherwood Schwartz recalled in a chat with the Television Academy Foundation. ABC didn’t think it was worth it “because the show was not doing that well. It was okay, but not anywhere near as good as it was two or three years earlier. So, it went out peacefully.”



Considering how much the show is beloved today, it’s hard to figure out why it was not a smash in its time. One report from Outsider speculates it could have been popular with kids, while adults weren’t crazy about it.



Like another big Paramount hit, “Star Trek,” the popularity of “The Brady Bunch” grew in reruns, and eventually, it became the beloved family hit that we all know and love today.
