Trivia

The role of that Cleavon Little played, Dr. Jerry Noland, was not originally written for a black actor. Frankie Avalon and John Rubinstein were among the actors considered for the role. (The beach movies that Avalon had appeared in with Annette Funicello were directed by William Asher, the producer and occasional director of "Temperatures Rising".) However, Asher's wife, Elizabeth Montgomery, spotted Little doing a guest appearance in an episode of All in the Family (1971), and then recommended him to her husband. Likewise, Montgomery also recommended Nancy Fox to Asher after spotting Fox in a toothpaste commercial. See more »

Good to bad
5 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am agreement with the previous comment. During the first season of the show I was in stitches. Cleavon Little was one funny man. The show could have been tighter, but overlooking its faults, it was a gas. Out went James Whitmore, in comes Paul Lynde, then down it went. I laughed little and eventually stopped watching. What the show needed was better writing, not new cast members. As funny as Paul Lynde is, he was not on this show. What started out on the right track, derailed in the second season. Too bad. I do not remember much about this show, but Cleavon Little and James Whitmore stand out most in my mind. They connected. For a hospital comedy, it could have had better writing, but the first season was funny and fun to watch.
