Did You Know?


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 »

Ruined Comedy
7 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recall this series and the first season was funny. OK, so as a 12 year old my tastes were a bit different than now, but regardless, I did find it funny. Clevon Little was (is?) a comic master and was allowed to be funny. Then the show was 're-configured' with some, eh, funny people and the emphasis was taken off Little and he was made essentially a straight man for some very marginally funny cast members. I don't recall the last season, maybe I just gave up at that point. The few past posts I've done and all future ones concerning TV will show what my true feelings are towards television executives. Too much responsibility placed on too little brain power.

There, I've said it.
