Trivia

The show was only moderately successful during its first season. NBC agreed to renew it on the condition that costs be held to the 1967 level, effectively freezing the talents' salaries. Producer Desi Arnaz obtained agreements from everyone on the cast and crew with the sole exception of Roger C. Carmel who held fast to a contractual point providing him with a raise upon renewal. Arnaz pleaded with him, pointing out that the livelihood of dozens of people were essentially at stake but he wouldn't budge, despite his then-decent $2,000 per week salary and the promise of residuals and was released. Carmel was replaced (by Richard Deacon) and the show sank miserably in the 1968 Neilsen's and was canceled. As a result, Carmel was effectively blackballed from the TV industry for several years.

Rodger!!
14 December 2005 | by (TCM's Basement) – See all my reviews

This was a fun show cast in the same die as "I love Lucy." Who could believe Desilu could strike gold twice with casting Eve Arden and Kaye Ballard in essentially the Lucy and Ethel roles? I just barely remember watching an original run of an episode or two, but like several others have mentioned, they did run them briefly in the late 70's. How cool was it to live in a converted garage where the garage door opener was still installed? That device made for a fun episode where Eve and Kaye get stuck on top of the door while spying on "the kids" when someone decides to open up the garage door. The opening credits were frantic and colorful, it should have lasted longer. If you were a fan of Dharma & Greg, this was essentially a remake of The Mothers-In-Law.
