Trivia

The second season of the series was produced by Duke Vincent and Bruce Johnson and featured a "black comedy" approach similar to the film The Hospital (1971) starring George C. Scott. Paul Lynde played the new penny-pinching chief-of-staff, with Sudie Bond as his mother, the owner as well as a patient at the hospital. Barbara Cason was the hospital administrator, Jennifer Darling played a nurse, and John Dehner and Jeff Morrow alternated as pompous surgeons. Cleavon Little was the only actor retained from the original cast. Due to poor ratings the series was placed on hiatus after only 13 episodes of the second season. See more »

Hospital sitcom had several incarnations
26 December 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – 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.
