Eight Is Enough, Season 1Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Running on ABC from 1977 to 1981, this family comedy classic revolves around Sacramento journalist Tom Bradford (Dick Van Patten) and his eight very independent and individual children (David, Mary, Joanie, Susan, Nancy, Elizabeth, Tommy and Nicholas) forced to deal with life’s ups and downs, while living under one roof. Winner of a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Program as well as two Emmy® nominations, this often comical, but always touching family drama was the heir apparent to the television mantle of The Brady Bunch. Anchored by Dick Van Patten’s Everman’s father and husband, the serialized show made stars out of many of its underage actors and guest stars – including The Karate Kid’s Ralph Macchio, Star Wars’ Mark Hamill and more. There’s more than enough laughs and life-lessons in the first season of this television classic.

Along with Family, this was one of my favorite 70s tv shows! Can't wait for the next season! More like these, please!
good to see the old shows
This show was always a favorite of mine I wish there would be more of the older TV shows released. I would like to buy all the seasons of this show I enjoy the fact that
EIE has depth and good quality in every episode It deals with a lot of topics that at the time were not dealt with by television. I like the comedy even though
there should have been no laugh track added. It is the only problem I have with the way the show was made. thanks for a very good and well made product
