Flying High (TV series)
Flying High is an American comedy-drama television series, created by Dawn Aldredge and Martin Cohan, starring Kathryn Witt, Connie Sellecca, Pat Klous, Howard Platt. The series aired on CBS from August 28, 1978 to January 23, 1979; this series follows the lives of three sexy flight attendants working for the fictional Sun West Airlines in Los Angeles. In early May 1978, CBS announced its new schedule plan for the 1978-79 season, with eight new shows including Flying High planned for 10-11pm Friday time slot; the main three characters, played by Kathryn Witt, Connie Sellecca, Pat Klous, were recruited from top New York modeling agencies with a specific plan find three attractive women models albeit with scant acting experience. As executive producer Mark Carliner recounted at the time, when he went to visit the CBS head of program planning Harvey Shephard to pitch the show with three models in tow, the networks sales head saw them on the elevator and after learning they were pitching a show called the head of programming to say "we need this show."
The show was not a unique concept -- Flying High was one of a number of shows developed in the late 1970s and early 1980s in what has been called the "jiggle" era. A two-hour pilot aired on August 28, 1978, during the summer re-run season, was the most-watched prime time show of the week; the first regular one-hour episode aired on September 29, 1978. By mid-October it was clear that the show was in trouble due to low ratings, it only ranked 56th out of 65 shows for the week ending October 15, 1978, maintained that dangerous low rating, leading to its cancellation. It had received negative reviews for its representation of women as "curiously old-fashioned, if not stereotypical." Both shows were seen as trying to copycat the success of Charlie's Angels. Kathryn Witt as Pam Bellagio Connie Sellecca as Lisa Benton Pat Klous as Marcy Bower Howard Platt as Captain Doug March Ken Olfson as Raymond StrickmanPlatt and Sellecca met on the set and developed a romantic relationship which led to a brief engagement.

In May 2017, the album was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Travis Scott announced the release date for Rodeo through social media on July 17, 2015.
In the CR Fashion Book, Scott stated his life was like a rodeo and he feels like he is trying to stay on a bucking animal: It's like a Beyoncé concert. The carnival, the livestock, the show are all parts of the event. I feel; the carnival is like my imagination—it's the drive behind my vision. Though I don't feel like I'm at a point where my shit is at an all time high, we're working to get there. We are working to stand on that level; the livestock show is the road to get to. At this point, I'm riding a bull for just eight seconds and it's hard as fuck, but we made it. On January 26, 2015, to support the album, Scott announced he would embark on The Rodeo Tour with Young Thug and Metro Boomin. On January 27, the following day, Scott released two new songs. However, neither of them ended up being on the final version of the album. On June 12, 2015, a track titled "Drunk" featuring Young Thug, leaked online. However, it was still included on the album as "Maria I'm Drunk" with an additional verse by Justin Bieber.
On June 8, 2015, Scott released the album's lead single, "3500", which features guest appearances from American rappers Future and 2 Chainz. It peaked at number 82 on the US Billboard Hot 100. On July 29, 2015, Scott released the album's second single, "Antidote"; the song peaked at number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100. On April 14, 2017, the song was certified triple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Rodeo received positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 64, based on 15 reviews. Roger Krastz of XXL stated, "Overall, Rodeo has plenty of bangers and noteworthy collaborations that help bring out a fantastic trap sound that could bleed into the mainstream of hip-hop in no time." Jason Bisnoff of HipHopDX stated, "Rodeo's back end after "Antidote" begin to mesh together and gets repetitive.... Nonetheless, the originality of Scott's sound within this new movement provides for a strong rookie effort leaving the listener excited for a career, just getting started."
Trazier Tharpe of Complex stated, "Travis Scott made an enjoyable album for his fans peppered with undeniable bangers for his detractors." David Jeffries of AllMusic stated, "With Rodeo, Travis Scott becomes a designer drug." Steve "Flash" Juon of RapReviews.com stated, "Somewhere beneath all the hype and production he does shine through." Martin Caballero of The Boston Globe stated, "His versatility, combined with a high-profile guest list, conspires against him. Kevin Ritchie of Now stated, "Scott goes for spacey sounds, stoner vibes and vocal filters, but despite the eclecticism, he's too elusive and bland for Rodeo to amount to a stylistic--let alone a subversive--statement." Sheldon Pearce from Pitchfork stated, "He is most effective when he harshly distorts his vocals to create texture, in the company of others he can serve as a welcome change of pace." David Turner from Rolling Stone stated, "Left on his own, Scott can grow tiresome. "I Can Tell" sounds monochromatic without another voice to push this astute curator.
Some rock stars are better leading bands than going solo." Matthew Ramirez of Spin stated, "This is a cold, calculated record lacking in personality, though it tries to deliver something that Scott is incapable of." Rodeo debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, moving 85,000 album-equivalent units, of which 70,000 are pure album sales. It debuted at number one on the US Rap Albums chart; as of November 2015, Rodeo has sold 110,000 copies in the United States.
