"The Tim Conway Show", not to be confused with Tim's 1980 variety show of the same name, seemed to draw inspiration from the feature film "McHale's Navy Joins the Air Force", and even has a few of the same writers as "McHale's Navy". Like "AfterMASH", it could've easily been titled "AfterMcHale" because Tim and Joe are basically the same characters from the previous series, only this time they're on the same side with the common enemies being the owner of Crawford Airfield and her weaselly son. Tim and Joe had wonderful comedic chemistry together and it's a real shame the show wasn't given another shot.

It aired as a Mid-season replacement on CBS Friday nights at 8pm as the lead-in to the popular "Hogan's Heroes" and opposite "The Brady Bunch" on ABC and "The High Chaparral" on NBC. CBS in 1970 was gearing up for the big "rural purge" so it's anyone's guess if "The Tim Conway Show" would've survived even if it had gotten decent ratings.

This series really could've gone about 2 seasons max. if it had gotten a lucky break. The 2 episodes I've seen of the show are quite creative and funny. Really wish there were more episodes of this sitcom out there, or even available on a retail DVD but unfortunately it's very unlikely to happen.
