The Girl In My Life was an American daytime television show spotlighting women who made a difference in people's lives. The show was hosted by Fred Holliday and the announcers were Bob Warren and John Harlan. The program aired on ABC during the 1973-1974 TV season.
Each day on the show featured three to four vignettes of women. The people whose lives they touched would offer a testimonial statement about their special woman, always ending with the phrase "My name is _____, and the girl in my life is ____." The woman would come out on stage and be interviewed by Holliday, and then would receive a modest prize package or an item of special meaning to the woman.
The show's format was spoofed in an episode of The Carol Burnett Show, using the knockoff title "The Girl That We Like".
The series was not rerun after its original network run and is believed lost. One pilot program that used a different musical theme aired near the middle of the series' run.
