A victim of the infamous rural purge in 1971 along with The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), Hee Haw (1969), Green Acres (1965) and the The Ed Sullivan Show (1948). These shows were perceived by then CBS executive Fred Silverman to only appeal to people who lived in rural areas and older people, so he decided to cancel them even though they were all still hugely popular at the time.

I remember watching this show in the early '80s. Good show. I barely remember watching it in the'60s. Back then, I was on the road a lot. I used to travel in the summer and I didn't watch that much TV. The show was about Howard Dodson, the newly elected city councilman of Mayberry, North Carolina, (Andy Griffith's home town of Mount Airy, North Carolina.) The series premiere had Andy Taylor married his long- time girlfriend Helen Crump. Howard has a son named Mike. Millie was the local waitress at the local diner and Emmett ran the local fix-it shop. He fixed everything. Unfortunately, it was cancelled by CBS because Fred Silverman, then the president of CBS, in his "infinite wisdom", thought that only old people in rural areas watched it.
