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 »

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.
