Trivia

The third and final format of the series aired as a summer replacement series in the summer of 1974. Paul Lynde and Cleavon Little were retained from the second season while all the supporting characters were dropped. Alice Ghostley, who had made a guest appearance in the first season, became a series regular as the hospital's head nurse who was also Paul Lynde's sister. Playing other nurses were Barbara Rucker and Nancy Fox, the latter returning from the original cast. William Asher was also brought back as producer. See more »

Hospital sitcom had several incarnations
26 December 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

This short-lived hospital sitcom set in Washington, DC lasted only two seasons but had three distinct versions during that time. The only constant throughout the show's run was Cleavon Little. After one season featuring Little, James Whitmore as an older doc, and several nurses and staffers, the show was reconfigured into "The New Temperatures Rising" with Paul Lynde, Alice Ghostley and Sudie Bond brought in as the family who owned the hospital and were primarily concerned with cutting costs. After a few months with them, the show was put on hiatus, only to return a few months later in a third version with more new cast members (plus Nancy Fox from the original cast) but without Lynde, Ghostley and Bond. Needless to say, a third season was not forthcoming. In all three versions, the laugh count was about average for this type of show (that is to say, too low). TV never has really managed to produce a top quality, long-running hospital sitcom; we'll have to see if "Scrubs" stands the test of time.
