Some interesting recollections about APPLE'S WAY. One comment: Regarding the Sunday-night "deathslot" for this program as APPLE'S WAY aired on CBS, it would not have been "clobbered" by 60 MINUTES, if only because 60 MINUTES was also a CBS program. Alsoper Alex McNeil's TOTAL TELEVISION book (second edition, 1984)60 MINUTES became a regular Sunday-at-7 p.m. show starting in the fall of 1975, a year _after_ APPLE'S WAY launched (60 MINUTES had various time slots before fall 1975). As for the show itself, I have vague recollections of watching the first few episodes. My family were fans of THE WALTONS, and no doubt that's why we gave APPLE'S WAY a look. But, also no doubt, APPLE'S WAY suffered in our homeand in many othersfrom airing opposite hour two of THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF Disney on NBC. For what it's worth.
