Opening with an exceedingly long (by today's standards) 90 second theme song, Angie aired for two seasons in 1979 and 1980. The theme song reached number 1 on Billboard's adult contemporary charts in 1979. Set in Philadelphia, the story revolved around waitress Angie Falco (Donna Pescow), customer turned husband Brad Benson (Robert Hays), and the couple's two very different families; the rich Bensons and the working class Falcos. A very pre-Raymond Doris Roberts also starred as Angie's mother. As usually happens, the show jumped the shark once the main characters were married in season two, and viewers lost interest.
Actually, they were married in the 4th episode of the first season.
