This show had a lot of charm, and an interesting history. This was a summer replacement series that ran on ABC. The exterior shot was of a bar across the street from the ABC studios in New York and the characters were loosely based on the bar's staff. The bar was a well known ABC hang out. At one time the bar even had an ABC extension. The bar's owner in the early days of ABC would lend the former NBC blue network money to meet the payroll. Some say that he also lent ABC to money to cover President Kennedy's funeral. It is said he lent the some $20,000 in cash, and he told them, "I am giving you cash, and I want it back in cash." The owner was hard drinking Irish man with foul mouth that lived in the poshest of streets, fifth ave. He was such a character they turned him into this show, but toned down for TV.
