Peg Lynch Social Network
NBC cancelled Ethel and Albert in December 1954. Its sponsor was the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson and, according to Lynch, it was cancelled because the sponsor's wife decided Lynch reminded her of her husband's first wife and she didn't "want to look at that face every week". The show found new life when it was picked up by CBS as a 1955 summer replacement for the Spring Byington vehicle December Bride and was so popular that Lynch was offered her own half-hour prime-time slot (sponsored by Maxwell House). Ethel and Albert gained a devoted following across America and in the fall of 1955 the show again switched networks, this time to ABC, sponsored by Ralston Purina. It remained there until May 1956. Lynch owned the rights to her show and was not limited to a single network. Ethel and Albert aired for the final time on television on May 25, 1956. However, the show continued on CBS radio starting in 1957 with the title changed to The Couple Next Door. Lynch and Bunce continued in the title roles, and Lynch remained as the show's sole writer. The Couple Next Door had a three-year run in a 15-minute five-day-a-week format, ending in 1960. AT&T brought the couple back in a 1961 instructional semi-animated video called Mr. Digit and the Battle of Bubbling Brook that focused on all-numeric dialing. Ethel and Albert enjoyed revivals in 1963–64 on NBC Radio's Monitor with Bunce as Albert and on National Public Radio's Earplay in 1973. In 1975-76 Lynch wrote and starred in The Little Things in Life for Radio Playhouse with Bob Dryden in the role of Albert. Six episodes of Ethel and Albert were adapted by Granada Television in Manchester, England, in 1979 titled Chintz and starring a British cast.
Lynch married Odd Knut Ronning (1918-2014), a Norwegian pulp and paper engineer in Manhattan on August 12, 1948. The couple had a daughter, Astrid Ronning King, who was also a writer and married to composer Denis King. Lynch lived in Becket, Massachusetts, and continued to write, revisiting the characters of Ethel and Albert as a couple in their nineties. She died on July 24, 2015, in Becket at the age of 98, following a sudden and unexplained decline in health.
Ethel and Albert fit the bill and within the month, on April 17, 1944, was reborn as a five-day-a-week, 15-minute show on national radio. Lynch was asked to play Ethel, which she initially refused. But after several actresses were auditioned and none found suitable, Lynch was signed to play the role. Richard Widmark played Albert for six months until he was replaced by Alan Bunce. Bunce co-starred with Lynch for the next twenty years in both Ethel and Albert and as their radio counterparts in The Couple Next Door. The partnership lasted until Bunce's death in 1965. Ethel and Albert continued as a fifteen-minute show until 1949 when it was expanded to a half hour. The show moved into commercial television in 1950 as a ten-minute segment on The Kate Smith Hour and in April 1953 became a half-hour program on the NBC network. The show was well-received by both the public and the critics. Margaret Hamilton was a regular on the show, playing Albert's aunt. Kay Gardella of the New York Daily News wrote that Ethel and Albert was "generally regarded as the top domestic comedy on TV. The warm, realistic characterizations and situations of this stanza reflect the personality of its creator. Peg is completely down to earth and so are her scripts". Jack Gould of The New York Times gave credit to the show and its creator-writer when he wrote "The author of Ethel and Albert, of course, is Miss Lynch herself. She has lost none of her uncanny knack for catching the small situation in married life and developing it into a gem of quiet humor. The charm of Ethel and Albert is that they could be man and wife off the screen."
After four months at KATE, Lynch moved to WCHV in Charlottesville, Virginia, and then on to WTBO in Cumberland, Maryland in 1941, continuing to develop Ethel and Albert as she went, and expanding it at WTBO into a five-times-per-week, 15-minute evening feature. Willis Conover played Albert. In February 1944, with $500 in her pocket, Lynch moved to New York City. Within a month she received an offer from NBC radio to air her show. Lynch refused the offer, however, on the grounds that Ethel and Albert was the only thing she owned and didn't want to part with it. Shortly thereafter, NBC sold the Blue Network (later to become ABC Television network) to Edward John Noble, who owned the Life Savers candy company. Noble was looking for a daytime comedy show that was not a soap opera and that had a storyline that would wrap up each day.
Lynch was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her father died of the Spanish flu when she was two years old, after which she and her mother moved back to Kasson, Minnesota, where her mother resumed her job as an orthopedic nurse at the Mayo Clinic. Lynch graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1937, majoring in English with an emphasis on writing and dramatics.
