The sitcom version was far different from the film version. I remember Sally Struthers coming into the role. During the 1980s, there was so many sitcom on television that some like this one were canceled because of average ratings but gained a following. Four years later, they reappeared in syndication where they had success and last about 3 seasons. Anyway, a lot of sitcoms like "It's a Living," "Charles in Charge," and "Mama's Family" all were on networks before being canceled and often replaced by something inferior. When they did return to syndication, cast changes were made because the original cast members had moved on to other projects. Anyway, I vaguely remembered watching this show on Saturday afternoons as a kid. I won't say it's a great show but it is far superior to today's television sitcoms with cast members like Valerie Curtin and Sally Struthers, they showed the office as it was and maybe as it is. Too bad, no local stations do reruns of the sitcoms anymore.
