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.

Proof That Talent Succeeds Where Ratings Fail
19 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a show which had two of the greatest writers in TV history, Caroll & Pugh who co wrote I Love Lucy. The cast was great as the talented Eve Arden & Kay Ballard were very good comedians who played off each other very well. The legend Roger C. Carmell is great in this show too. Herb Ruddley, if I recall his name correctly, played off Carmell well too as the straight man to Rogers classic funny man.

For some obscure reason, NBC tried putting this on Sunday nights when Ed Sullivan was still big and put it in a killer time slot. That is the main reason this show only lasted 2 seasons. The shows were funny and the format of the main cast going after each other week after week was a fresh approach.

The show naturally had a lot of ties to Lucy as the writers and Desi Jr. were on the show sometimes too along with other well known guest stars. This series is on DVD now,folks who saw it then have fond memories and folks who see it for the first time will wonder how network Execs at NBC killed such a promising & well done show in two seasons. Of course it was consistent with NBC's track record then as they also killed the original STAR TREK too.
