A Creature of Its Time
7 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Courtesy of YouTube, I've just re-watched the premiere episode for the first time in 50 years, and found it ... not so bad. There's a joke about unwed pregnancy, which was pretty forward-thinking for 1966, and they had the couple sleeping in the same tent on the rooftop during their honeymoon, which was -- you're just going to have to believe me on this -- also pretty forward- thinking. The shots of vintage San Francisco are very nice.

The show lasted only one season. Interestingly, YouTube has a video of Judy Carne promoting the second-season premiere of the series; she's there with Elizabeth "Bewitched" Montgomery and Marlo "That Girl" Thomas promoting ABC's Thursday night programming for the 1967-68 season. At the time, ABC had a bad habit of renewing a series and then rescinding the renewal a short while later, and "Love on a Rooftop" got the belated ax. ABC wound up moving "Bewitched" and "That Girl" half an hour earlier, and didn't even bother to program the 10:30-11 p.m. ET slot that opened with the cancellation of "Love on a Rooftop."
