The Tony Danza Show was a daytime talk show hosted by Tony Danza. It debuted to mixed reviews in 2004. The series, syndicated by Buena Vista Television, was produced live from New York Citymarker at 10:00 AM Eastern. Many East Coast markets carried the live feed.

Tony's sidekick, Ereka Vetrini (from The Apprentice), did not have her contract renewed for the show's second season; in addition, two of the show's producers were fired. Tony had an on-air pianist, Nadia DiGiallonardo, with whom he performed a song and/or dance with at the end of each episode. Her contract was renewed for the second season and she took over many of the segment hosting/sidekick duties that belonged to Vetrini the first season.

On May 9, 2005, during a go-kart race with NASCAR star Rusty Wallace (who was a guest that day), Danza's kart flipped after Wallace accidentally bumped him. Danza got a concussion; neither he nor Wallace was wearing a helmet.

In March 2006, the show was put on a two-week hiatus with Danza stating he "didn't know" if or when the show would return. However, fears that the show was already canceled were put to rest when the show returned after the scheduled two weeks. However, on March 24, 2006 Tony said that the show was "unlikely" to be picked up for a third season.

The most-viewed episode of the series was the episode where the metal band, the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, was featured in a viewer email. A viewer asked if he was aware of the band because his daughter listened to them. It had the most ratings of any episode on the show.

The last live broadcast of the program was on May 26, 2006, after which repeats aired for the remainder of the Summer. VH1's The Best Week Ever then started an online petition to save the show.

Extravadanza

Extravadanza was a game played once each day with a home viewer via telephone. Danza (or, more often, his co-host) would drop a chip on a Plinko-style board. Unlike Plinko, a stuck chip still counted when it eventually hit an amount. The caller would then try to answer a question, and similar to the games on Live With Regis and Kelly had 10 seconds and only one guess. A correct answer won the dollar amount the chip landed on.

1997 series

The Tony Danza Show was previously the name of a short-lived 1997 NBC sitcom starring Danza, Majandra Delfino, Dean Stockwell, Ashley Malinger, Maria Canals, and Shaun Weiss.
