So what is Jiggle Television?

Question: So what is "Jiggle Television" and where did the term come from?

The answer: "Sugar Time!" the TV series that ran from 1977-1978.

Contrary to popular belief, "Charlie's Angles" wasn't the first. "Jiggle Television" was coined by a T.V. Critic about the short-lived ABC-TV comedy series Sugar Time! starring Barbie Benton, about an aspiring female rock group in 1977. That show's greatest claim to fame may have been its inspiring one television critic to call it "jiggle TV", a term that was then frequently used to describe the many television series of the era starring attractive, sexy young women.
