CBS Failed Us!
31 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

In 1977 TV was filled with some great shows that have withstood the test of time and some which have not. "The Fitzpatrick" was a wonderful family show which lasted for only 10 episodes due to the fact that it was programmed against rating powerhouses "Happy Days" and "Laverne and Shirley". In retrospect, "Happy Days" and "Laverne and Shirley" have not aged well. It's a shame that CBS didn't give "The Fitzpatrick" a chance to find its audience because I remember it was like a modern day "Waltons" filled with touching stories and great moral messages. It's one of those forgotten gems that deserved better than CBS gave it. In this case, it was CBS's failure to give the show a break. I was sad when it was cancelled after 10 episodes simply because it had the unfortunate luck to air against the silliness of the ABC shows.
