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 »

Gimme' a break Lynde?, 3 October 2014
Author: Larry Vanerwegen from Hayward CA

I could not understand why Lynde was brought in. He was coming off his own show which was a disaster and killed two successful series by producers trying to make him a star player. Frankly, I NEVER thought the guy was funny. Cleavon Little however (RIP) had a track record of GREAT laughs.

ABC did a lot of show tampering a lot then. Take a show that was popular, tamper with it and destroy it. They not only caused shows to "jump the shark", they provided the ocean and the shark! If somebody has the original film (tapes?) they should publish them. ME TV? Here is a great candidate for your line up!
