A Watched Kettle...
Anyone else remember Ross, Ross Kettle? When I was in Jr High, the soap Santa Barbra used to play from midnight to 1am on our local NBC affiliate. They scraped the low rated soap from the daytime schedule and put it on late at night where they figured no one would be watching. We did, the midnight airings ended up getting higher ratings than the area's that aired the show in the middle of the day. Didn't help, the show was cancelled before it reached it's 10th anniversary.
I recently saw an image of one of the cast members and it took me back to watching on my 12 inch color TV in my bedroom as a kid. Ross Kettle was brought on to play Kelly Capwell's husband before Kelly (Robin Wright) left to The Princess Bride. I remember crushing over Ross, his South Africa accident, his lean hot body and his furry chest the show displayed from time to time. I didn't know that Ross was still in the business, but checking his IMDB noticed he appeared on Masters of Sex a couple of years ago. I have not watched that series yet, but will have to give his episode a look!
