Classic '70s TV Reunions on Sam & Cat, See Dad Run; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of October 28, 2013)

Cindy Williams and Penny Marshall - Sam & Cat

Nickelodeon will host an unforgettable weekend on Nov. 9 and 10 with two iconic reunions of legendary television creator/actor/producer Garry Marshall's landmark series, Laverne & Shirley and Happy Days, in brand-new episodes of Sam & Cat and See Dad Run. In Sam & Cat "#SalmonCat," premiering Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon, beloved comedy duo Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams (Laverne & Shirley) will reunite on screen in a scripted series for the first time in over 30 years. The following evening, a brand-new See Dad Run will bring back star Scott Baio with Happy Days creator Garry Marshall in a homecoming on their former set in "See Dad See Dad Run," premiering Sunday, Nov. 10, at 8pm ET/PT on Nick at Nite.

Scott Baio and Garry Marshall - See Dad Run

In the brand-new Sam & Cat "#SalmonCat," Sam (Jennette McCurdy) and Cat (Ariana Grande) are ordered to rename their babysitting business because it's too similar to "Salmon Cat," a TV show from the '70s. Sam and Cat must track down the show's two original creators (played by Penny Marshall and Williams) and resolve their three decade-long feud. In the premiere of See Dad Run "See Dad See Dad Run," David's (Baio) TV dad Bernie (played by Garry Marshall) visits, but the reunion sours when he runs off and leaves his new baby. David must convince Bernie that being a real dad will be his best role. Marshall's son Scott Marshall directs.
