KY Jones was a widower
27 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My Dad was a big Dennis Weaver fan, and we watched it together when it was on. Dennis Weaver's initials in his first name were K.Y. so the Kentucky Jones name. The first show began where he was at the horse track (this was when I was 8, so please correct any information you may have) and his wife had died. However, before she died they had wanted to adopt a child, and he came just after she died. So the premise is of a single father/son premise that has been repeated on TV.

The character Weaver portrayed seemed awkward at times trying to raise a child without a mother, but had help from the supporting cast.

It seemed like a good show (at least in my 8 year old eyes) but as my Dad said, "The good shows get canceled."
