In January 1976, Marie Osmond and her brother Donny began hosting a variety show called Donny and Marie on ABC. After a successful airing of the show for two years, it was renamed as The Osmond Family Hour. In September 1998, the two siblings once again came together to co-host a talk show Donny & Marie which ran until May 2000.
