Trivia

ABC canceled the series after one season due to mediocre ratings. When Burt Reynolds became a popular success in the early 1970s, which included the Oscar-nominated film Deliverance (1972) and his appearance on a highly-publicized 1972 Cosmopolitan centerfold, CBS reran the series in 1973 and 1975 with great success.

Correcting a previous poster...
14 March 2008 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

'The House on Greenapple Road' was the original pilot for this series, and in fact starred Christopher George as Dan August, not Burt Reynolds. The was never an episode called 'Once is Not Enough', let alone it being the pilot episode 'introducing us to the character of Dan August'. For goodness sake, there is an episode list alongside the subject! It's so easy to verify your facts. People use the IMDb as a source of reliable information, so unreliable information such as that previously posted on this subject, and many others I might add, should not be allowed to find its way here. I thought the IMDb personnel vetted these postings?
