About The Richard Pryor Show

The Richard Pryor Show was Pryor’s one and only variety series. The show premiered on Tuesday, September 13, 1977 at 8 p.m on NBC. The show was conceived out of a special that Pryor did for NBC in May 1977. Because the special was a major hit, both critically and commercially, Pryor was given a chance to host and star in his own television show. Sadly the show lasted for only four episodes. Ratings were said to be low as compared to other shows on the network. After fulfilling his contractual obligations, neither he nor the network pursued any further episodes or specials.
