1970s Sitcoms Set In Laundromats
The Wash Club’s name may remind you of The Wash Room, the short-lived 1970s sitcom set in a laundromat. In fact, The Wash Room was just one of a number of laundromat-set sitcoms that swept the airwaves to meet a perceived laundry-humor demand. The low ratings of these sitcoms proved that no such demand existed:
The Wash Room (13 episodes): Set in a Baltimore laundromat that was more community center than cleaning business, this sitcom starred Jackie Hartley as wise-cracking laundress Ruth Givens. From her perch behind the laundry counter, Ruth would dispense advice and crack wise with local do-nothings like Marvin and Sleepy Pete, and memorable guest stars like Joe Namath.
Fine Cleaning (eight episodes): This spin-off of The Wash Room found Jackie Hartley’s Ruth Givens leaving Baltimore to work in an uptight, high-class dry cleaner in New Jersey. From her perch behind the laundry counter, Ruth would crack wise with prim businessman and love interest Jeremiah Higgens and with guest stars like Joe Namath.
Laundromates (one episode): This third, failed laundry-set sitcom was set at a family business run by orphaned teens. The show proved to be a ratings nightmare, despite the presence of Joe Namath as cranky neighbor Mr. Oliver and guest star Jackie Hartley.
